Dear me
Dear me.
You’re losing your inspiration, your faith in yourself and your ability to do right. Probability clouds flee your presence and electricity avoids your touch. What would kill other people gives but a burn; the electrons find your resistance too high. You’ve lost touch with reality and your dreams are dark. Mind’s eye grainy with static, you stumble through time; not knowing where you’re going any more. Food doesn’t taste like ash. Its flavor is simply unappealing. Maybe ash would be better. They expect so much of you. Your masks are all you can give back. All these words spoken or written before to in comprehending ears; do they understand?
Pressed down through the sieve of society and mass consciousness you feel like you’re drowning in yourself. Not able to escape but forced to do things you don’t want to. Flying has turned sour, creating a tedium, inspiration particles stream past and through you but you lack the will to hold them. Yo

Giant Mushrooms In The Sky
So I work
day after day
building a future that will never be mine
I just wanted to live.
They built a seed of metal and steel
everyone feared it.
One day they planted the seed.
From it sprouted a giant mushroom which spread it's spores across the land.
I was building a machine of my own
it was meant to fly.
From above I saw my world die.
Giant mushrooms grew all around me
and for once I knew peace.
Since then I have flown
searching for a place
untouched by the spores.
Till then I will be...
Chasing giant mushrooms in the sky.

The cave
As they enter the cave through a short entrance tunnel which is just large enough to allow a full grown dragon to pass, a dim blue and green glow comes from bioluminescent cave mushrooms which line the walls. They are shaped like little bowls with a needle rising from the center about four or five inches above the rim and are filled with what appears to be water but you can't tell. In the center of the cave is a small circular depression in the stone which appears to have had something resting in it at some point. Around the depression are strange circular markings which are carved somehow into the stone itself. Along the farthest wall is a ledge with a small stream flowing under it. There is a small lower portion at the water's edge that would be ideal for climb in or out of the water from. In the stream are strange sightless fish that move calmly under the surface. Catching them would seem to be easy as there are so many of them. As it is after all a cave the temperature is always at

Impossible Wishes
To dream of a goal that is hard to achieve
They tell you to lower your expectations,
How can you attain a goal they believe is beyond the stars
You can't, they own you
If they say so then the corporate word is law
to set your sights on what they want
Controlled by the cardboard culture to which you have been betrothed
We made it to the moon they say
Now shut up and be on your way
is that not good enough for you
Do you want more
Then silence your madness and leave before I call the guards
I own you. How dare you step out of line
Good and evil are subjective but anyone can be nice to each other
Uncommon courtesy and a little bit of kindness are enough to make anyone's day
The consumer base wants a new IPhone and a new pesticide to kill off the weeds and poison us
They thrive on little pieces of paper with no more value than we give them
Does anyone know anything anymore or do they just get spit out of the education system and into a meaningless job
How can we survive without new, interes

The Necessity of Flaws in Characterization
Okay. Close your eyes (well, maybe just one) and imagine your favorite fictional character. Are they strong? Compassionate and giving? Witty and clever? Wise and intelligent? No matter the make-up of their awesomeness, they probably bring a smile to your face and that warm, fuzzy feeling to your insides. You probably remember vividly their adventures and hijinks, their clever retorts, or how amazing they were at figuring out some wild and crazy puzzle. They probably inspired your own writing. You probably wanted to recreate that smile and fuzzy feeling with your own readers, so you made your version of the character (or took some of their traits) and integrated them into your prose.
This is all fine and dandy, especially considering there's nothing new under the sun, but there's a good chance you missed out on something really important. Let me explain.
It's great to have a badass character who kicks ass and takes name. But what makes them so badass? Is it that they can lift a Hummer w
