It seems they gave me a blog feature on this website. It sounds pretty exciting, I've never wrote a blog before. As far as blogs go, this ones busting my cherry.
We should get this trash train a' rollin'.
For starters my name is Philip, you can call me Phil if you want and I reside in Athens GA.
Check out my profile if you're interested in anything further.
As for right now I'm not sure what to make this blog about so I guess I'll make it about my mind.
I'll post and comment about the things I read and see through the days. Maybe it will lead to something interesting and meaningful or maybe not. We will just have to wait and see.
To go along with the first blog, here is the first "real" poem I ever wrote.
as i sit here in this worn chair, in this ugly room, inside this dirty house everything becomes clear as a painful blue sky.
every verse, every line, every word i have written, up until now, has been written without a soul.
i have written pages upon pages of heartless and hollow poems (if you want to call them poems).
each word spilled forth more untrue and meaningless than the next.
but in this moment of clarity i see everything for what it really is.
the words i once typed have withered like dying flowers.
they have grown stale like old love.
they cover the floor like a sea of stagnant trash.
those decaying words, hideous and misshapen were never meant for great things.
they will sit on pages so lonely that they themselves wish to wither away like dying flowers.
but for the garbage i call my poems, i dedicate to you the first real and true poem i have written.
