Sometimes I talk:

Me and humanodon in Boston!

Me and insomniasexx in LA!

mk, theadvancedapes, ecib, thenewgreen, me, insomniasexx, b_b in Detroit!

me, someguyfromcanada, coffeesp00ns, in Toronto.

Robert, mkaram, me and flagamuffin on my front porch

blackbootz, me, mivasairski, Jess, _refugee_ in Baltimore

And since you asked, I came across Hubski while searching for the Higgs-Boson.

On a tiny phone on a bus. Went on to try a "something beautiful" poem on your prompt. Found this. So glad you are clean. I know there's love out there. And so do you. It's just not always where we think to look.

Soon. Super busy for two days, then a five hour train ride.

Chapbook is a good idea. Some of it is very good.

taco - post "something beautiful died tonight" or I'll have to...but I'd rather you do.

I'd have to print it out, then type it out.

The taco poetry file gets thicker!

It's too painful a topic.

Here's another by taco:

waking to life

i dreamed of a girl,

and she was there

when I awoke,

but life changed her.

and she was not how i remembered.

life makes everyone:

bitter,

cynical,

angry,

selfish,

jealous.

but I'll love her always in that space,

between sleep,

and life.

when the world is blurred

and the dream seems real.

Here's one by tacocat, posted with permission

"Go ahead and post them if you like."

how to read about loss

the comma,

means breathe.

the period,

full stop.

comma,

comma,

comma,

remember:

the comma means

breathe.

the period,

between the breath

and the full stop,

is where the loss is.

Powerful poem!!

Are you my ex-husband?

Probably not. He couldn't write poetry, just prose.

I was just looking through previous #todayswritingprompt and found another lovely thing you wrote.

Astonishing!! My last badge -- I wish I had more for everyone of these contributions. "This Is What It's Like" should be an anthology.

Wow, Ben! That's the answer! Be part of something larger -- disappear in it, seem completely insignificant, but the reader realizes that each of the gears and sprockets and flanges keep the large thing going. And then the poet finds some quiet inside the machine -- and the larger thing: thoughts, poetry, identity, purpose -- starts to grow inside the speaker and the reader!!

Thank you for this contribution. While you say "not to have words" -- your words conveyed the feeling of being lost and losing the bright colours of the world quite well. Being lost and having the distinct colours and shapes of the world be washed out create a stark, forlorn feeling in the reader as distinct as clouds floating past the full moon.

I should have clarified this: the tag and any future tags are just to say I was thinking of you. the universe makes enough requests of your time and energy. hubski is here to applaud, not demand.
