Odd Musings


I tried watching the Perseids meteor shower Saturday night. It was too cloudy, so I only got to view a handful of meteorites. I craned my neck at the sky and after a few minutes began texting my Google Voice number. It's a good thing I didn't text anyone else, because my musings became very strange as the night progressed into morning. I edited a couple of my favorite ones.

23:24

No meteors yet.. Or worse place to browse. Shall I go back for the rum or am I sufficiently wrecked?

[For the record I had nearly two shots of rum.]

23:30

Do you know what life sounds like? It sounds like a whimper from a swollen heart full of love, life, and death. 

23:32

I can just lay here. The empty sky, gracing me with its clarity, the wind dusting away the impurities of my thoughts. 

23:34

The stars twinkling a gradient of lust to true understanding. While the moon undresses my pale heart with praise and pleasantries. 

[I believe I'm the worlds slowest texter.]

23:41

I want to imagine him with my evening gaze. But that is not good enough for him. He'd rather exile me from his waking thought. 

23:42

I used to think that for every thought he had of me I'd have one of him in return. But its all foolish.

23:43

He never thought of me that way. Or else he'd set me straight. But he did in a different way, by ignoring my soft eyes and lustful stares.

23:44

He was very clear in that regard. And likewise I shall remain strong and avoid him like the plague. Avoid this feeling of distrust for myself.

23:45

I have been bitten by ants. It's ok. It's all very worth it right now. 

[And... that's the rum talking.]

23:47

The Texas night glow is not the same without you.

[It really isn't.]

23:56

If at least in my solitude I can enjoy the blessings of this earth.

00:04

My heart sings in loneliness the love I hide but don’t show too well.

00:09

Best star gazing night ever.

Then, I began going through a list of goals and dreams. I stayed out till three in the morning when I realized that I missed the warmth of my pillow.
