The first thing to go is emotion. What would once cause pain and tears now reflects a blank expression. Horrific details become objective facts. The next thing to go is anxiety. Intense, nerve-wracking procedures become routine. Adrenaline fades into complacency. The last thing to go is compassion. Individual stories become common scenarios played on repeat. The most disturbing details are now comfortably familiar scenes. Reflected in the windshield is my impassive, expressionless gaze As I realize I cannot recall the last time that I cried; As I come to find that I am no longer afraid of the vulnerability of each individual life. It is truly a super human hell that exists for those of us so deeply immersed in this career of defeat and demise.

I'm in love with your wonderful poems. They are so simple and yet paint beautiful pictures. "Not goodbye" was the first poem that was a wow factor for me in this page. Your sample poem is lovely as well. The more I read, the more I realize what a wonderful writer you are. It is a pleasure for me to read you.

Thank you Hallie for your kind words on "Suicide ----"

Sorry, I can't really bring myself to repeat the word outside of the context of the piece.

Thank you again.

"God or the universe or whatever one chooses to label the great system of balance and order does not recognize Earth-time. To the universe, four days is no different than four billion light years. I try to keep that in mind." -rjw

I have to comment on time as well. What the fuck is it? I think of it often but, not you or I, our society has placed so much emphasis on it. It disturbs me, along with things like college degrees, and gluten disrespect to those who actually have a condition because of it, but I often wonder...are conditions made up to generate money for the cash cow that is medical science, or better yet...consumerism, capitalism, or societal peer pressure?

So, I love your bio too. Its excellent.
And that is not all.
I don't think your spending too much time trying but your spending the right amount of time.
And fuck it. You have all the time in the world. Kill calendars and murder clocks.
