"Once divided…nothing left to subtract Some words when spoken…can’t be taken back. Walks on his own…with thoughts he can’t help thinking Future’s above…but in the past he’s slow and sinking Caught a bolt ‘a lightnin’…cursed the day he let it go
Nothingman Isn’t it something? Nothingman
She once believed…in every story he had to tell One day she stiffened…took the other side Empty stares…from each corner of a shared prison cell One just escapes…one’s left inside the well And he who forgets…will be destined to remember”
"I think these hands have felt a lot I don’t know, what have I touched? I think these eyes have seen a lot I don’t know, maybe they’ve seen too much I think this brain has thought a lot Searchin’ trying to find a crutch I think this heart has bled once too often This time, it’s bled a bit too much
Too much of anything is too much for me Too much and everything gets too much for me…”
Truthful Tuesday : A Tumblr post about Tumblring (Bullet-point Edition)
This coming Saturday (July 2nd) will be my one year Tumblr-versary.
I’ve been completely overwhelmed by my dashboard lately. It’s been taking all the time I have just to keep up.
I really need to cut-down on the amount of people I follow, but I don’t want to offend anyone with an unfollow. (“Catholic guilt” still follows you, even when you’re a lapsed-Catholic.)
My OCD won’t let me just “skip posts”, or not try to go back and catch up on the day’s posts.
Because I spend all my time reading through the dash, I never seem to have time to write anything anymore.
Even when I do have time, I can’t seem to organize my thoughts enough to write. There have been so many topics I’ve wanted to write about lately, but just can’t get all of my thoughts out to the page.
I’ve always been a perfectionist with my writing. This usually leads to me not being able to hit “publish” until I’m 100% happy with the post. - This is also why I’m so horrible with responding to emails or ‘Asks’ in a timely manner.
I now have to save *every* post to Drafts, so it gives me a chance to reread & edit before it’s actually posted. (I’ve also noticed that Tumblr doesn’t seem to “lose posts” as frequently if they’re saved to Drafts first!)
I usually end up editing my posts at least twice before they get posted… And if any errors still make it through to the published post, I completely beat myself up about it.
I like to use GIFs in my writing posts so they don’t just look like a big block of text. Plus, they’re also great for shamelessly attracting your attention.
Also, they make me giggle.
This post is alot longer than I planned for it to be… This *may* be progress in breaking myself out of this writing “funk” I’ve been in.
"Hey, fellas, have you heard the news (Oh yeah) The women in this town have been misused (Oh yeah) I seen it all in my dreams last night (Oh yeah) Girls leaving this town ‘cause you don’t treat ‘em right…”
"I play a good game, But not good as you I can be a little cold, but you can be so cruel I’m not made of brick, I’m not made of stone But I had you fooled enough To take me on If love was a war, it’s you who has won While I was confessing it, you held your tongue Now the damage is done…”
"…Where do you come from? Where do you go? Sorry that’s nothin’ you would need to know Well, my back has been to the wall for so long, it seems like it’s stuck Why don’t you break my heart one more time just for good luck…”
