Another.

By randomjo, published on Jun 2, 2013

Another relationship

Another guy

Another set of excuses

Another pack of lies.

Sometimes I wonder why I even try

Why I bother crying

Why I tolerate lying

Why I'm continually dying inside

These days its much harder to hide it.

Why am I trying to avert this certain disaster?

What kind of happily ever after could come of this?

Librarians

By randomjo, published on Jan 29, 2012

Shhhh!

Librarians don't shout...

they throw books and shoot stern looks at those who disrupt the status quostudious lenses signal those in the know, secret deviant proclivities almost show, like a slip under a pencil skirtslap you on the wristwith just the right amount of pain to make it hurttight like the bun at the back of her neck

I don't know what you've heard lately,but that little lady is a naughty nerdof all the things you want to give her the most important is respect

Phoenix

Phoenix

Arid & DustyThis city is musty, laden with thick smogCement & low-rent, a mix I lamentI cannot see myself exist here

No where to go, yet everything to buythis consumerism makes me sick.

Some of the worst of the Westabhorrently dressed--does no one here realize tatoos last forever?The hottest of hot an the coldest of cold amounts to the absolute worst weather.

I'm just passing through, but I know it's the truth-if I had to stay here it would be my end, unhappily ever after.

Seek

By randomjo, published on May 3, 2011

Seek and you shall find

Mysteries that grow on trees in the hidden corners of your mind

Memories and make-believe sometimes heavily intertwined

The ones before, the ones right now and the ones you hope to meet

They all join hands and do a dance, yet never really speak

So no one can tell you where to find them or how to let them go

The sing-song rhythm and hurried buzzing go from fast to slow

So all you're ever really left with is...

You never really know

Life's a Beach!

By randomjo, published on Apr 4, 2011

A beach town is a beach town.

It's allure is part of the inevitable let down.

The brightest do their best to to burn what is left of the meaningful discourse in the hearts of men far more sincere yet less tan.

Where almost every man comes to taste the salt of the earth or at least on the skin of the beautifully dim. Come on, take a swim in the waters of superficial.

Yes, it's official this is where everyone comes to show off, blow off some steam and persue their dreamof fun in the sun with the not the right one, but the right one for now.

Yes, you'll still... (more)

Oh Bartender

By randomjo, published on Nov 30, 2010

Oh Mr. Oh-so-bad for meI sip this tasty drink you made for meoh so effortlessly I slip into a tipsy state; my vision blurred by the liquid encouragement coarsing through my veins.

I'll take the reins & drive myself crazywith the would I, should I and maybes.

Oh baby shake me like that drink you just made me; perhaps I'll just shake it and make you take me to places I dare not think of...

I think I'll just take another drink of this sweet libation, I feel thisvibration is far too much for me to ignore. That's another point for you but who's keepingscore in this game... (more)

We're Black And We're... Very Similar

By randomjo, published on Apr 7, 2008

Barak Obama is like Kanye West Because:

The most obvious, the Illinios connection

Should heed the saying "It is better to be silent and let people assume you are dumb than to open your mouth and remove every doubt."

Case in point: Sometimes does not think before he speaks, often resulting in a maginficent media circus and perfect fodder for the late-night talk shows.

Sometimes says stupid shit on TV or in front of major media outlets.

Has a song written for him.

Has legions of adoring fans.

Is Idealistic, to a fault. an endearing yet problematic... (more)

Listen up Hollyhood Scenesters : Music Is Forever.

By randomjo, published on Mar 20, 2007

Even if you weren't around while a band was together, actively touring or pressing records. Their music can still get under your skin. How many generations have learned to love Led Zeppelin? I had friends in college who, as a collective household, only listened to Led Zep. Anytime I visited their place...what was on TV?...some Led Zep DVD. This is not an overstatement. I have never seen anything else on their TV with the exception being a greasy handful of Blockbuster movies. These guys probably never got to see Led Zep play live. They were drooling on themselves and pounding sippy... (more)
