Violet Lightning (Rewrite)i.
The static crackled purple against grey black,
But it could not match the thunder that was my breath.
When I first saw you, I knew we would be different
From the way your umbrella clung to your wet skin like a cloak
To the way to the torrent began- a roaring gasp that flooded my lungs with rushing.
Hazel regards me-
black streaks only served to accentuate a statement that almost wasn't there.
Unpredictability fit us like a glove,
Unconventionality like a second skin.
We lived it.
There was some love song from the seventies playing in the background,
There was deco on the walls
There was you.
They paled next to you.
The only thing that mattered was you.
He was a good kid.
The bed consisted only of conversation
Which was fine with the both of us.
We made solitude together under the blankets,
Speaking of nothing and meaning everything.
It wasn't long before her lips perfectly matched the flower on my lapel,
Shimmering against a white dress in the sunlight.
Three LiesI have three lies. Yes, I counted. I tried to count everyone else's once, but it got to be too much to handle, and so, I count my own.
Maybe three lies isn't so bad. Maybe it isn't the worst thing in the world. But hold your judgments, one way or another, until you hear and understand what they are.
Lie Number One: I am not a coward.
I am a coward. I cannot stand up for what I believe in, because people are easily offended. It is easier to exist when you can get along with those around you. I would not hesitate to take up arms to defend my rights, but words are personal. It is so easy to say, "I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not," but it is another thing entirely to live it.
Or, if I try to articulate my opinion and defend my position, I am shot down by those who don't care about the right and wrong of things. Never allowed to speak my piece to the listener, never able to even put words to my thoughts.
I hate myself for this.
Lie Number Two: I am not
On The Nature of MankindMan was inherently good at one point. At the creation of the earth, God created man and saw that it was good. God created Man in His own image. Man was a pure being with a specific set of rules- to tend and watch the Garden of Eden, and not eat from the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
After the Fall of Man, when Adam sinned and the serpent tempted Eve, the circumstances changed. Cain killed Abel, the earth was filled with violence, and Man became corrupt and evil. Genesis 6:5 states, "Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every intent of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually." (NKJV)
Some could argue that since God then flooded the earth and rid it of everyone who was found to be wicked, then Man reverted to the original 'inherently good.' However, several scriptures in the New Testament refer to man as being inherently wicked. John 8:44 and several scriptures in Romans lend credibility to this point.
