and now the glass is broken
the drunken words spilled onto the floor
wine meets wood
tracing red drawings
I see your pain - perfectly

Bookreview: It's kind of a Funny Story - Ned Vizzini

Title: It's Kind of a Funny Story
Author: Ned Vizzini
ISBN: 9780786851973
© 2006 Ned Vizzini
Ambitious New York City teenager Craig Gilner is determined to succeed at life - which means getting into the right high school to get into the right job. But once Craig aces his way into Manhattan's Executive Pre-Professional High School, the pressure becomes unbearable. He stops eating and sleeping until, one night, he nearly kills himself.
Craig's suicidal episode gets him checked into a mental hospital, where his new neighbors include a transsexual sex addict, a girl who has scarred her own face with scissors, and the self-elected President Armelio. There, Craig is finally able to confront the sources of his anxiety.
Ned Vizzini, who himself spent time in a psychiatric hospital, has created a remarkably moving tale about the sometimes unexpected road to happiness.
I came across this book in a bookswap-point and the title and description interested me enough to take the book home with …

The weight of water

lily-pads float languidly like they have no mass
no fear of sinking
fairies tiptoe carefully on the waters surface


but if I don't swim I sink like a stone
the weight of water heavy above me
I can see from below
the show the fairies display
of walking on water

Nog niet...

Het is het nog niet wat mij betreft - deze look. Ook het schrijven is geheel niet wat het moet zijn. Ik moet dat writersblock eens een flinke trap geven. Wie weet schiet het los.

Wordt vervolgd...

Under Construction

Ik ben nog steeds aan het knutselen met de 'look' van dit blog. 

De eerste update zag er een stuk rustiger uit, maar ik stoorde me aan het feit dat het template grote lege zijkanten had, waar ik niets aan kon veranderen. Daarom nu een net nieuw ge├»ntroduceerd template waar de zijkanten gewoon meegebruikt worden in de ruimte die de body van het blog inneemt, enkel wordt hier wel de nieuwste post echt uitgelicht. Toch vind ik het zo gek nog niet. 
Op- en aanmerkingen zijn zeker welkom. Is dit een verbetering?

Imaginary world

on this day I pray not to find truth nor falsehood
let me stay ignorant of the blood and shame
for it's all the same

it's all the same

let me dream awake of flowers and fairies
let me play the fool and know nothing of life like it is
reality is just another state of being
I am not
nor will I ever be
a proper grown-up


I am a child of the trees
of the butterflies and bees
and I wander in wonder of all that beauty
so few people truly notice, or so it seems
maybe I am strange and at fault
but let me be
maybe I was never meant to live this long
and become old
