Running lukewarm through
my veins, unfulfilled hopes quashed,
tension waned; mellow.
Music swaying, lips seeking
easy, dizzying nectar.
Notes: featured image not mine
I can only be succinct/concise in my poems and not my essays, it seems…
And yes I reposted this just now as the first one didn’t appear at the top of my blog for some reason.
Song: Everybody’s Watching Me (Uh Oh) by The Neighbourhood (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7FeTsK3Vr4) – listened to the I Love You album on repeat whilst writing this. The voice reminds me of the kind of melancholic feeling I get from listening to Lana Del Rey too, but more relaxing.
Not here to be marked,
or to sate your appetite –
I’m not a walking
juice box. I’m minding my own
business, now leave me alone.

A tanka about vampires/mosquitoes, of course inspired by when I get bitten – one time I got three bites on my neck which didn’t fade for ages, adding to the reasons why I kind of dislike summer.
Also, just imagine the glass of blood (well I actually searched ‘glass of tomato juice’, afraid of what might come up) is from a soy milk carton which says “mine” on it. I hope someone gets that reference. EDIT: I changed the featured image because I found out I got permission to use this cool painting on my blog, thanks BlacksmithOWY! 🙂
Song: Closer by Kings of Leon (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkGhDHP093M) – I came across it by searching “vampire songs” and fell in love.
I can’t tell if I
care because you’re my friend or
’cause I have few friends.
Please be okay. I’m selfish
but seeing you hurt hurts me.

Blog post title taken from first line of Pain by Three Days Grace.
My friend’s in a rough patch at the moment, so I made her a card. I drew her fave anime character and put motivational quotes on the inside.
What I say to myself is that without suffering, you wouldn’t appreciate happiness.
This is a tanka (one little haiku for a week’s post seemed insufficient).
Song: Painkiller by Three Days Grace (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ud4HuAzHEUc) – Three Days Grace is my favourite band and One-X is my favourite album of theirs but Painkiller is off Human.
