This may relate to the human/nature predicament.
    #488347 - 12/12/01 06:36 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

This is utter fiction, I would have warned you but I ran out of room. Anyhow, I wrote this awhile ago, sometime during depression and before I came to the shroomery. I've got hordes of this stuff saved away on my computer, but I came across this one today and thought I might as well share. (I don't know if the first part is supposed to set the stage or what... I don't really remember writing this, I know I did, but I don't remember exactly when or why... seems irrelevant now)


A child is torn, lost in limbo between two worlds. The frogs and wolves call to him from the forest, and he longs to return, return to the place of his birth. Still, something un-named, some equally visceral force tears at him, coaxing him into the unknown.

The frogs call to me, the wolves beckon me to return. How I long to return, to the
place of my birth. Leave this blasphemous boulevard and return to the long forgotten
place of my birth. Glinting eyes dance through the trees, the allure is unmistakable. I tear
at my clothing with frigid fingers, but frigid fingers have grown feeble, and the reality of
my situation is that I?m in no condition to return home. What a disgrace. I can?t return
home now, not like this. Not as what I?ve become. There is no going back, and my
cousins mock me now, their flight through the wood unnatainable, their lives I?ve long
since forsaken. I?m not fit to return to my home among the breathing. And still they call to
me. ?Come home my wayward son, come home, here among the breathing.? Not like this.
And as I turn my back once and for all, I turn my back to the lush expanse of my youth, I
confront my future. I accept the cold bosom of my destiny, but the embrace is void of life,
void of emotion. With nothing to touch, nothing to hold, I embrace the binary, I embrace
the void.

---About that binary stuff, I don't think I was talking about "The Matrix"... I hope not anyhow. :wink:
I'd like to say I was high or something when I wrote this, but odds are I wasn't.

I just found this... peice. (I don't know what it is.) It's related to the first one, and seems to be inspired by it rather than a true continuation... but it's sort of both.


The beasts will be upon me soon. I take one last look over my shoulder, a longing last look over my shoulder at the expanse of my youth. The vast fields, the flowering valleys
with the sun warm upon their breast. My childhood friends, my long lost love, always just out of reach. The view is a bittersweet one at best, it sets my heart melancholy and instills me not with courage or fear, but something of change. For change is inevitable, and change is imminent. And as my cousins dance throught the forests of my youth, they call
to me. ?Come home my wayward son, come to your home among the breathing.? Ah, a familiar sentiment. My home among the breathing, is that not what this is all about. The
home I have forsaken, long ago. The home I remained in, living in sin, for to forsake the land and then nurture yourself from it is surely rape. The land I raped, there it is, staring
back at me, forgiving me, but I cannot forgive myself. I must not. I must be on, for the beasts will soon be upon me.
      ?Follow me!? my guide, the guide I wasn?t aware I had, speaks to me. Grinning at me, he marches off on diminutive legs, surely not legs fit for the journey ahead. But legs
none the less. Such diminutive legs, such a diminutive man, though not entirely man I imagine. Still, a good travelling companion, though I might not outrun the beasts, I should
have no problem outrunning him, but such thoughts are better unthought until such situations arise. And so we march on, the un-named man thing and I. Making our way
down the lustful rivers flowing from my homeland, I often stop for a breath and a drink, though my escort has stopped for neither thus far. This worries me. But worries are hard
to remember while sitting on the banks of the lustful river. I can?t help but dream of the adventures and maidens and the beasts that follow in my wake. Eventually the dreams of
beasts are what stir me to continue, to fall to far behind... that thought is also better left for such situations. No one likes to obsess about the serpents that lie just beneath the
tightrope they have set for themselves. It is a tricky enough maneuver on its own without worrying about all of the reprocussions... just don?t fall behind...

----I just fixed the structure... it was all fucked up.-------
ok, it's still fucked up, screw it. :wink:

Thanks. I wrote that quite awhile back (I vaguely remember) in a deep depression, before I started thinking about most of this stuff on a deeper level... Then, I look back at some of my writing, and I realize I've been thinking about the exact same things for like a year, and I haven't realized it, and I haven't got very far.
This Christmas will be the anniversary of when my other than immediate family found out I was a disturbed little boy. :wink:
I haven't made it too far since then, so I think I'm probably trying to attain the wrong things...

Let go,
trust yourself,
follow the path you find in yourself,
dissolve the anchoring ties.
Let go.
And you'll rocket to the surface,
where you can finally
breathe.

Thanks man. :smile:
As much fun as compliments are, where're the critics? I know that it's not the most "well written" stuff... I enjoy that particular style, but I know a lot of people are gagging and thinking a four year old must have wrote that...

Hmmm... I just went back to read this and I thought it was interesting how my writing style has changed since even then (a year or less ago.)
I would tend to keep things a little simpler now I think... I'm not sure. I like the flow of it when you get into it, but I doubt that many others liked the flow.

I would just like to complement you on the fine writing. I somehow sense that you are not so depressed now. It would be amazing to see what you could put out with a more positive outlook. Please don't overlook your talent! I would love to read more recent work, and see how it relates to your mood now. I am happy that you are feeling better. peace!

I'll see what I can either dig up or create... I was writing some poetry the other day but I can't remember what it was about. Depression has always been a good muse for my writing, since when I'm not depressed I'm usually out enjoying life in some way or another. I generally don't feel like showing much stuff to people because of the fact that I wll think about what they say about it, and crap like that... I don't really know, I'm just shy. ; )
Plus, if nobody sees it until I'm dead and long gone, they'll probably like it a lot more... unfortunate but true.
