Rhymability. And Not So.

Some messages that were saved as drafts in my phone:


What hackneyed phrase is this;
That ignorance is bliss?
But, oh, what wouldn't I give,
For that state of 'love to live'?
Why be in the deep to drown,
When the shallow can just walk on out?

-

This is something I wrote throughout the year after beach mission '08.

You linger in the half-light,
And something is writ
By the sea side.
And all we have is our half-minds.

-

John Marsden,
Your book 'Everything I Know About Writing' has been very useful. I used it to swat a mosquito. I missed. But I'm quite sure I'll kill him one day.

Boggiu?*

-

If it's going to destroy my life to have you remember me,
I'd rather be forgotten.

-

Sarcacke*

-

But I'll tell you, I wasn't expecting this;
I wasn't expecting bliss.

-

*These are both words that I or someone else tried to spell, but clearly didn't work. I'm not sure what the actual words are meant to be.




There, Benchong. I blogged 3 times in a day, you owe me 5. GetOnIt.
