Boys & Girls – Alabama Shakes (Why Can’t We Be Best Friends Anymore?)

Song: Boys & Girls

Artist: Alabama Shakes

How? Why am I just discovering them? Their album has been out about a week over a year.

I’m completely in love!

Love their live performances, and I would looooove to see them in concert.

The band is amazing, and Brittany sings with her whole body and she’s pretty amazing to watch, as well as listen to!

Alabama Shakes
The Shakes!

Alabama Shakes – Boys & Girls

Had to add some more:

Alabama Shakes: Hold On

(No, I don’t wanna wait!)

Alabama Shakes – Rise to the Sun

All I believe in is a dream
I haunt the Earth though I am fully seen
In all my years I’ve never felt more sure than now
Well, I got to get off this rock somehow

I feel so homesick
Where’s my home
Where I belong
Where I was born
I was told to go
Where the wind would blow
And it blows away – away

Well, my eyes are full of stars
But I just can’t reach ’em, oh, how high they are
I got to believe what I’m seeing , ooh  maybe it could come true
But in a modern world that can be so hard to do

Good stuff!

Addiction-Mr. West (You Make Me Smile With My Heart)

Song: Addiction

Artist: Kanye West

Been on a bit of Kanye kick recently, forgot how much I love this song. Truth in these here lyrics (nice Etta James, “My Funny Valentine” sample too!):

“Why everything that’s supposed to bad make me feel so good?

Everything they told me not to is exactly what I would

Man, I tried to stop man, I tried the best I could

But (You make me smile)”

The Angry Poem (3.22.13/Poem 12)

Stories and Poems were trying to destroy me during my block. I went mad. They became angry. Poems sent me this:

The Angry Poem

This poem is an angry poem
You don’t want to read this
This poem hates you

This poem will slit your throat—
if you fuck with it
Don’t insult this poem

This poem will punch your gut—
switch up your strut
This poem doesn’t play games
This poem is sick
A disease—
One that has no mercy:
Cancer
AIDS
Alzheimer’s
Loneliness

This poem will infect you,
It’s airborne
Tuberculosis at its height

You will not outlive this poem
This poem shoots to kill—
two in the heart and one in the head

It’s not asking why
not longing for your love
not second-guessing itself

This poem blames you,
your parents, lovers, neighbors, children—
everyone that has ever tried to destroy it
This poem will dismember them slowly
Shoot an arrow through one ear and out the other
Yank their tongues out with tongs,
Use an ice cream scoop to serve
A feast of their eyes

This poem will watch them bleed slowly
As you watch this poem

You can’t stop this poem

This poem is stronger than you
smarter than you
better than you

This poem is a murderer
Insane sociopath

This poem doesn’t care what you think

You can try to Talk to this poem
Reason with this poem
Love this poem
Rise above this poem

Burn this poem
Stone this poem
Stab it, shoot it, Abuse it,
Ban it, Neglect it,
Nail it to a Cross,
Hang it—
leave it for Dead.

But this poem was born to kill
And you—
were born to die

Dante – Cheerleader Chant (3.21.2013/Poem 11)

Having a little fun ;)

Dante (Cheerleader Chant)

No more
I’m done
Baby it was fun
but I am gone
Goodbye
hope you crash
your car and Die
You and that girl
you Fucked,
Maaaaan,
you’re shit out of luck
I hate your guts
live loooong
long After you die
in a stony pit of fire
where constant Pleasure turns to Pain
the women always Scream your name
and are forever Playing games
with all you
Lemons
Losers
Lames
hope you love the titillation
more than constant stimulation
the attention you receive
from every type you can conceive
and the feeling that it brings
to have the bitches of your dreams
My King

I love you

Curiosity Killed the Cat, So They Say… (8.14.12/Poem 7)

Curiosity Killed the Cat, So They Say…

Curiosity Killed the Cat—

      What does this really mean?


Did Curiosity seep into his mind

And poison his sweetest dreams?


Did Curiosity tie him up

And make him scream his name?


Did Curiosity ease him along

And watch him burn in flames?


Or did Curiosity take the wheel

And drive the cat insane?


What if the cat was a martyr

And made sound judgment calls?


Should we be blaming Curiosity

For giving the cat some balls?


Consider that the Cat

Had a mission at his paws!?


You know, I think I like the cat.

A kitty for the cause.


I know!


 I think I’ll praise the cat.

For you – THE CAT – Applause!

The Other Woman (6.20.12/Poem 4)

The Other Woman

The world is upside down,

my cynical side is showing,

and positivity is positively

exhausting.

Crushed hard by gravity,

craving depravity,

I just want to

be a dirty girl

love bad man

have wild sex

eat greasy food

cut school

skip work

smoke a lot of weed

live a champagne life

party all night

get drunk

Black Out

never think about what happened

and do it all over again,

conveniently forgetting

 to feel guilty

about any of it.

The Last Kiss Stings – Poem (5/.26.12/Poem 1)

Here’s the first poem to my Poetry Project: The Last Kiss Stings. It is definitely a work in progress. The devil line is really bugging me, and I’m working on the two lines before the last, they don’t seem to have much of an impact.

Here’s the audio of my reading:

Here’s the poem:

The Last Kiss Stings

 

Like

150 proof in one shot down the back of your throat,

the residual tingly sting atop the tongue

that drives you to suck the roof of your mouth for relief,

the inner blaze forcing your eyes wide shut, nostrils to flare,

ooooh the better to taste you with

my dear,

nerve provoked by the strut of your body,

the fire in your belly

rearing your coy barefaced-devil

who needs just

one

last

kiss

while your bloodstream

soaks up the spirit

and it flows through you,

exercising itself

freely and finally

as it’s leaving,

releasing itself

as cool fluid down the side of your face.

 

And then gone.

Hope You Enjoyed!

Constructive Criticism always welcome!
