The crazy ones…

The crazy ones….

I remember you, you had fond desire for unplanned road trips. You loved the tequila and the lime at noon. You hated hotels and you loved sleeping by the sea in a sleeping bags. You hated rude people and you loved the California fish tacos. I remember you taught me, I was more than a soldier and life was more than us. I became a crazy one with you near.

I remember we tried to drink every beer in a wild night in San Francisco in a early Spring. The San Francisco policemen awoke us-up in the back of my truck in the morning. They laughed at us and pointed at the nearest coffee shop. We became Monterey legends, we suicide boarded the big Winter storms for weeks and the Germans and Japanese people photograph us dancing with the wild sea. Thinking we were the insane folks…

The Last Thousand Conversations #Poetry #Journey

Poems for Warriors

Photo by Timothy Eberly on Unsplash

I’ve held out hope
to have that conversation
but another part
insists we’ve already had it
a thousand times before
It starts out civil
explaining our feelings
But then it turns
to the Blame-and-Shame game
every struggle we had was my fault
you refuse to take any
personal responsibility
a complete lack of self-awareness
The memories are forever
seared into my heart

Sunday Writing Prompt – 14February – A story of Love

Keep it alive

Michael is the host of Sunday Writing Prompt this week

Today is St Valentine’s Day, so the challenge is to write your story of love.

Be it true or a piece of fantasy, give it a go, see where it takes you.

❤️❤️❤️

Let me tell you a story

Story of something called love

Love which calls a heart to itself

Love that is so real and true

Its pull is magnetic, its charm undeniable

Yes it is a story of the best kind of love

Love that one cannot ignore or ever deny

An emotion that is born in the inner sanctum of a heart

And blossoms to envelop the whole personality

Purest of the sentiments, that connects a heart to a heart

Connecting lovers, or friends, family, or siblings

Love is not just one type that we honor

Love of all beings warrants our appreciation and esteem

❤️❤️❤️

Open Box – Music quotation of the day

Art, Music, Photography, Poetry and Quotations

Marilyn Manson(Brian Hugh Warner, 1969 -) is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, actor, painter, and writer.

© Kevin Winter / Getty, Marilyn Manson, (Cropped, Date Unstated)

He is known for his controversial stage personality and image as the lead singer of the band of the same name, which he co-founded with guitarist Daisy Berkowitz in 1989 and of which he remains the only constant member.

Like the other founding members of the band, his stage name was formed by combining and juxtaposing the names of two opposing American cultural icons: a sex symbol and an infamous criminal; in Manson’s case, actress Marilyn Monroe and cult leader Charles Manson.

Manson is best known for music released in the 1990s, such as the albums Portrait of an American Family (1994), Antichrist Superstar (1996) and Mechanical Animals (1998) which earned him a reputation in mainstream media as a controversial figure and…
