Literature
General Relativity Blues
despite the energy I expend
the work remains constant
this time-independent symmetry
wears down my potential
the associated killing vector
leaves me feeling null and light
my eyes begin to redshift
the variables all look equivalent
its becoming harder to differentiate
the letters from the numbers
I was in the right frame of mind
but now I've lost my inertia
as I gaze into infinity
my grade approaches zero
the night passes in a time-like fashion
while my thoughts are space-like scattered
I've worked these problems now
for what feels like a proper time interval
relatively frustrated
massively tired
generally hopeless
especially uninspired
I can't feel the gravity of my situation
I'm lost in a free-fall
wishing only to accelerate my head
into the curvature of my pillow
my watch is running slow
but as I make my way home
the path refuses to contract
no matter how I integrate my steps
I thrust myself through the door
attracted only to my dreams
as I collapse into bed
I begin to emit z-radiat

the scream
it haunts the streets
locating lonely people
and possess their vocal chords
stretching them
pushing them to their limit
so the only thing they can do
is scream into the night
it is so painful

between
stop thinking, just feel, with that
grimy heart of yours so
murky, clouded,
twisted,
wrung from scaly hands
that squeezed the light
from your soul.
don’t pray
don’t defile the skies with your
serpent's lies and your
demon’s eyes that glow red
when you love too much.
you dangled me over the abyss,
told me to hang on,
hold me like a lifeline,
and i did i clawed
your fair arms raw i begged
until my mouth ran red but you
just smiled
flashed your fangs in the moonlight,
and dropped me.

Poem - Binding Words
Binding Words
I’ll hide behind these binding words
make pretend I’m something else
a shadow of the inner mind
heart and soul concealed in prose
deceit is not my base intent
when shame states its desire
wishing nothing to deface
perception based on purity
blessings showered from above
nothing ill has occurred
this will be the message sent
when honesty has been replaced
this temptation does exist
it’s not lying to remit
all the pain felt within
to only show the shiny bits
I’ll chain the muse to my will
deny it breadth of my self
scratching only joy and bliss
in prosaic latitudes
presentation is obscured
with only best brought forward
my defense cloaks the hurt
a wounded person binding words

Asperger's Syndrome
A lot of people have been asking me about Asperger's syndrome and some of my experiences with it and some of the conditions. This is largely because, on the internet at least, I seem to be good at hiding it. Most people I meet here don't know that I have Asperger's syndrome unless I directly tell them. I do have it, but what exactly does it mean? First off all, please don't use this as a way to diagnose yourself. If you think that you have Asperger's syndrome, depression, or any other mental condition please see a licensed psychiatrist. You cannot self-diagnose mental conditions. (Hmmm... I kind of have that symptom sometimes, I MUST have this disorder!) Asperger's syndrome is known as a high-functioning autism, and as such many of the symptoms are similar, and yet, in some ways it's very different.
The most notable symptoms of Asperger's syndrome come from issues with social interaction. Most people seem to notice this because there are a lot of people claiming to be an asshole on the

How to love a girl who can't love herself.
one.
    When she cries herself to sleep
    six out of seven nights a week you must
    say nothing. You must simply take
    her in your arms and kiss her gaunt,
    pale cheeks and wait for her to
    slumber at the sound of your heart.
two.
    On the days where she wishes she
    were part of the stars, tell her
    no. Tell her that there are too many
    lights in the sky and that just one
    would be forgotten the moment you looked
    away from it. Tell her that she is perfect
    the way she is: completely human.
three.
     Don't let her think about the scars
     that no one but her can see. If she
     says "I think I'm broken" smile like you
     know a secret and say, "No, you're mending."
     But do not be the one to fix her - no, she

On self-love
Maybe who
she really loves,

she thinks of,
while she lines
her chatoyant eyes
with charcoal
maybe the name
she really needs
to think of,
is her own.

Learning to grow up.
My fiancee and I have two beautiful, sweet kittehz. I couldn't have asked for a better set of best friends, nor a better family. Our wedding is planned for September 12th of this year, a (hopefully) glorious and great day with accompanying good weather.

The older cat is technically all hers, and his name is Nino. The best step-cat anyone could ever ask for. I call him my BOB, short for "Black Ops Buddy," because he always wants to hang out with you, but not too close. So he will come plop down by me when I am playing videogames or I am about to fall asleep. It's cute and hits you right in the heartstrings when you realize that he could choose to chill and relax in any other room in the apartment, and yet he chooses to exist in that space just out of arm's reach.

He has been on a steady and disconcertingly rapid decline for the past 3 weeks. Unfortunately, he won't be around for much longer. Today he pissed himself due to not being able to get out of the bathtub. He likes to lie down in there because it's hot in the apartment during the afternoons, and he's a smart fucking cat. Intelligent. You can see him thinking; you can almost see the gears cranking into place. He has become very wobbly in the past week, because he is losing muscle mass. He's not drinking water as much, and he's hardly eating. So he was way too weak to get out of the tub. Now, I don't know if he was too weak to even get up, and so he messed himself right where he was lying down. Or, he could have picked a separate place in the tub to do it, but was so wobbly he fell over into his puddle, and couldn't get up. Or, and this is the worst theory, he has since also lost control of his bodily functions. That's the scariest bit. Because that means he's going to be gone way too soon.

Of course, it's always way too soon. He's only 11 years old, turning 12 in September (if he makes it that far). We thought we'd have a lot more time. We always think we will have a lot more time. I am just not ready to say goodbye to one of my best friends, one large chunk of my family. He's my Baby Boy.

I haven't rewritten the description on this fundraising page. But suffice to say, there's no surgery needed anymore. He has a slight heart murmur (worse now, they tell me), and low protein levels, and kidneys are not quite up to par. Surgery has too many risks for an old cat like him. So he keeps the leg, and the biopsy incision is in the final stages of healing. Monday, he was so dehydrated and weak that we had to have subcutaneous fluids injected. The vet started talking about seriously considering euthanasia. We're not ready. He's not ready.

He still has some fight left in him, and we will only push him as far as he wants to go. He still purrs when we give him some luvin's. He's not eating very much at all, and even now that we have his fluid levels up high enough so that he can get up and awkwardly move around like a newborn fawn, he's not drinking enough water either. Tomorrow I have to pick up a prescription for an appetite stimulant. One pill to help his appetite, 2 pills of a corticosteroid to help get some control of the cancer. Daily. Plus maybe continuing the subcutaneous fluid injection every 3rd day.

We just need to make him comfortable. And any money that doesn't go toward his existing vet bills will go towards our local humane society. We love kittehz and puppehz alike.

Anything you can give would be appreciated. If you can't donate, or even if you decide not to, you could give encouragement, send some prayers our way, let me (virtually) cry on your (virtual) shoulder. Whatever you can do to help. I thank you for it.

Thank you for reading.
