I was born in a place you've never heard of; in the turn of the century, God help me... I was raised in turmoil. I was brought up by children and have been raising adolescents ever since. I have a few good friends and only one invincible foe. I live in hell. It's possible that I've once or twice had a glimpse of heaven. I've loved an indifferent lover. To everybody else I'm insatiable. I keep dying. It's cumbersome. A perfect stranger once saved my life. Now I have to save someone... I'm compelled, you see.. I practice a togue that is not my own. I exploit it for my own twisted pleasures with sad and pitiful results. I misspel a lot. "Look here, sweetheart, I don't mean to mistreat you..." I swing between romanticism and cynicism. Sometimes I feel like a rock and sometimes I feel like a grain of sand. I just can't take a pick. Chances are my existence in this world will never mean a thing. I'll just come and go unnoticed.Yet, I'm happy to be a nobody. I'll still get out of bed every morning and put on my heavy armor, even if my knees are sore from the day before. I'm all alone and yet I have no time to myself. I am every other person.
Fleeting -It's on my left arm; it sears. It's on my wings; I try to bear it; in tears. It's in my chest; It beats. It's in the air; I suck it in and it fogs my wits. It used to be inside my mother. It still resides within my father. It's growing inside my sister's womb, as we speak. It fills every second of my time; be it minute, hour or week... I have it here, somewhere...Among my daggers and swords... Look! It's almost out but it's still lit! -Lovely. Any last words? -Yes. I wish I had some more of it. _Mae Foreman September the 16th 2018 "Art is the imaginary solution to a problem that is unsolvable in real life." "A simple act of kindness can be the lifebuoy that can help one out of the quagmire of cynicism and self-abandonment." _Mae Foreman
