Remnant

I am steel and iron
With pulsing veins as alive as any
I am silent with hushed veracity
Calling forth that spark of reason
Electricity flowing, this cold heart hums softly
I would feel fear and sorrow inside
Yet as I am, I cannot
I feel so cold
My skin shining with gleams of sunlight
I am firm and watching
Welcoming all who dare approach
I am guardian and protector
To those with malice toward my kingdom
My dreams may not come, as I have not yet slumbered
My design is unbeknownst as I have no maker
I can taste, barely, my morality
With which I denote my purpose
And through purpose I have meaning
I am always and forever
I am Construct
I am Remnant

This Is Not My Sweat :[

Hey there you little goblins, how are you? You’ve all probably heard of the heat wave affecting us right? Well this weekend, I attended the first everThe two-day music festival was absolutely amazing! It was held at the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City and the music was going on inside and outside of the stadium. I must admit that even though I’ve only been to a few concerts/festivals, Kanrocksas topped the list after last night. Not only did I get to see some of my favorite bands up close, I got to enjoy it with Megan McGinnis and her family and friends 😀 I was sooo happy! She gave me a fright on Friday after she nearly passed out at the Arctic Monkeys concert, and again Saturday morning. Send her some get well wishes if you get the chance.

With any kind of concert in August, there’s bound to be heat. This heat doubles when it’s in Kansas. But despite this overwhelming heat, people still party themselves sick and sweaty. Nearly every guy at the festival went shirtless, whether he was chubby or skinny, muscly or chest-hair ridden. After an hour or so just standing out in the sun, people just stopped giving a fuck. Everyone and their mother was tan, burnt, hot, and slimy. I felt so disgusting just breathing in the afternoon air. When it came time for a band to perform, people crowded together so close that bodily fluids became one. At one point I was positive that none of the sweat on me was mine…I hope I was wrong.

So to break it down, the music was fucking awesome, the heat was fucking terrible, and the experience was fucking memorable. The Flaming Lips, The Black Keys, Ween, Bassnectar, 12th Planet, Kid Cudi, Cage the Elephant, Flogging Molly, The Arctic Monkeys, Fitz and the Tantrums, Girl Talk, UME, Primus, OK Go, Eminem, and Muse were the bands that we saw, although there were tons more that we weren’t able to see. We were up front for most of the bands which was awesomesauce. Muse put on the best show by far, next to The Flaming Lips.

The first night of the music festival we had planned to camp out in a tent, but once the day ended and we got to the camp site, waking up in a tent in Kansas in direct sunlight seemed like a bad idea. Instead, a friend and I slept outside in our sleeping bags under the stars, while Megan chose to sleep in the back of the van. If you’ve ever been camping you’ll know that waking up in a sleeping bag is shitty business, but waking up outside in a sleeping bag is downright disgusting. Whoever thought that putting the most moisture absorbing fabric on sleeping bags was a good idea should have been sent to Guantanamo Bay. The pillow I was sleeping on? Wet as a horny teenager 😦 I had a spot big enough for my face that was dry. It was a miserable experience that night, and was made worse by the unexpected fireworks that follow Eminem’s act. Rappers do not need fireworks. Fuck you Eminem. Fuck you.

After I got home I looked at my guitar and just felt anxious. I wanted to be able to play on stage in front of thousands of people one day, but I know that probably won’t happen 😛 All I can do is daydream about being on a hot stage, jumping around, and having a good, sweaty time. At least on stage I’m not being molested by other peoples sweat.

Adding A New Weekly Update: Prose/Poetry!

The Dance of Avaelia: Part I, First Act

Through this obsidian eyeglass we see the true stage
The lights are dim
The curtain drawn back
And nothing so rare nor obscene
Seen through the un-shadowed eyes we trust
Could ever be as beautiful

But why do you cowering like some guilty soul
Trial has not come yet my love
So rise and meet your audience with an uproar
So colossal, Zeus’ thunder is drowned without mercy
This is the time for your truest form
While I gaze through that obsidian glass

My dear Avaelia, to no avail can your demons hide
From my eyes of darkened notoriety
To the stage my dear child
To the stage and face that lingering fear
I say truthfully that I am besieged with love
Every moment that my shadowed eyes look upon you

Oh Avaelia you do me wrong in assuming my intention
I have no one other than my possession to adore
And you show me reason to adore you so
So keep your rhythm strong and heart full of passion
To the stage where the un-shadowed eyes see you
As nothing so rare nor obscene
And where my eyeglass of obsidian unveil
That which could ever be as beautiful

 

I hope you all enjoy this new segment I’m putting up here 😀 These are going to be mostly prose, some poetry. I think I’m just going to pull from my bank of poems, maybe write some new ones here, but i have no clue right now lol
