"when i slit my wrists
i'll think of you
when i cry myself to sleep
i'll think of you
when i die
i'll think of you
when you see a sheep
alone in the field
think of me
when you see a child
beaten by their parents
think of me
when you see that sheep
die alone in pain
think of how you neglected me
how you forsaked me
how you forgot me
and let me die
never forget me "

Can I just say that I had the shit beat out of me with a leather belt or hands or whatever was handy at least twice a week everyday of my life til about age 14 and never in a million fucking years would I or have I written ANYTHING like that.

I just want to make it clear that you can have horrible things happen to you without having to become a 'horrible teen poet'.

When you see someone write crap like this, tie hot dogs to them, and toss them into the lion cage at the zoo. It's a kindness, really; that way, they don't have to look back on it in thirty years.

crap? i dunno, i thought it was a nice change from crap like:

"i like puppies, kitties and sky
fluffy white clouds change my view
life is happy"

Mmm no.. see.. what you just posted here... that's crap.
But that thing up there?
That thing is CRRRRAP. with a nice big baroque 'r' and a hearty, conclusive 'p'

Nov. 26th, 2001 10:02 am (UTC)
Yes, well, those people should be tossed into a wood chipper.

the sheep is an inspired addition ;-)

The sheep? The sheep is... the sheep is the most important part of this piece.
The baleful, staring, bleating, stone-dumb, fluff chewing cud in the warm little meadow of this boy's soul.

you got here through Alex's journal, didn't you?

Your name has 'tit' in it.

>you got here through Alex's journal, didn't you?

guilty as charged.

>Your name has 'tit' in it.

someone pointed this out on irc about 5 seconds before i got the email telling me of your response... it'll actually a reference to greek mythology. not a corruption of 'tithouse' as some have unkindly suggested ;-)

I see 'tit' I think titmouse.

I also tend to think of madonna.. but that's because no one else so perfectly embodies someone who's boobies should be called 'tits'

Maybe shirley manson.

what/who is 'titmouse'? and shirley manson for that matter... (and madonna ;-))
Nov. 26th, 2001 02:11 pm (UTC)
A titmouse is a little bird

And a Shirley Manson is a flat chested lil twerp who sings with Garbage and has recently decided to be the pop culture poster girl for angrogyny (mainly because she's built like a 10 year old boy) . Despite knowing David Bowie did it 20 years ago.

Not the most convincing of photos.. but well.. look around LJ. She's probably one of the most oft used photos for the LJ icons.

Every angsty chick has decided that they wanna be shirley.

the titmouse looks kinda sweet :-)
shirley doesn't look very angsty, or androgenous for that matter. quite like some of her songs too (i rarely take the trouble to find out about the people who's music i listen to)... i'll probably be shot for saying that around here ;-)

The titmouse looks like a little bird... 'sweetness' is all relative.

And nah, she doesn't look particularly angsty there... but when you see her with the big boots, little skirts and the racoon eyes trying to sell pseudo-goff as pop... well...
it's angsty.

I pretty much revile her music
but you won't be shot.

"Forsaked" - I like it. An innovative teen poet reinventing the English language.
Nov. 26th, 2001 10:09 am (UTC)
You forsake-ah me, I forsake-ah you.

These are kids who's understanding of words like 'forsaken' is courtesy of metallica and creed.
Can you blame them for being a lil light on the spelling?
Nov. 26th, 2001 10:22 am (UTC)
Mmm. Maybe it's just the sheer, unrivalled depth of their angst - very bad for the grammar.
Nov. 26th, 2001 10:38 am (UTC)
Trust me... that's shallow angst.
Maybe it's just because their angst buckets at this point in their lives are so shallow.
Nov. 27th, 2001 03:23 am (UTC)
That would explain the poetry, I suppose. Their angst buckets 'runneth over'.
Nov. 26th, 2001 12:15 pm (UTC)

who are you calling a horrible teen poet, hmmm?

Nov. 26th, 2001 02:50 pm (UTC)
Why, was it you who wrote that? 'Cos, if it was, I've got some hot dogs...
