Literature
you are my angel
you are my angel.
rise above the crowds of people,
on wings of happiness,
and wings of style.
you are my angel.
fly up to the clouds,
stare into the eyes of God,
and smile.
and,
though i've seen you fly amongst the birds,
i'll find you perched quite close to ground.
and,
though i know you're better than all of them,
i'll find you walking with those around.
blindly,
deafly,
dumbly,
i will be the first to carry you,
into the sky.
and,
then,
one of two things will happen.
you'll reject me out of hand,
and turn your power against me;
burn my wings to cinders with your flame,
and leave me a hunched and wretched, burn-ed man.
or else your weight will be too heavy,
and i'll be far from what i think;
and you'll be ruined by my lack of plenty,
and i'll be left, forever, to blame myself.
i must find someone to carry me,
the way i want to carry them.

Literature
My Dreadful Head
can never get my hair sorted right.
struggle, for hours, to not much avail.
maybe i'm missing something fundamental?
get someone else to do it for me,
pay someone else to do it for me,
if i can look in the mirror without looking to the future, that's money well spent.
proud of my appearance?
just enough to sleep at night.
avoid tearing my locks out, dream that they fall out.
see the hair of another
wish i could look like him,
could've looked like him, should've looked like him.
thinner, tighter, natty, nicer,
tidy, and more numerous.
far from just a single mass, cut into 44 jigsaw pieces.
naturally jealous.
life's not worth so much
unless you can say "I'd rather be me."

Just got back from amecon 2012, at the beloved keele university, where I met DestinyBlue, whose business card reminded me that deviant art exists!

So I've added a deviant art link to my webpage, and uploaded a deviant art friendly version of November, a short story in three parts about a young man's unwillingness to commit to a career, and the violently erratic actions his misanthropy drives him to.

In Part 1 (Incarceration), the protagonist attempts to explain the monstrous nature of people to the policeman who arrested him.
In Part 2 (Violence) doubt threatens to undermine the skewed perception of the protagonist.
In Part 3 (Madness), the protagonist finally admits regret - although perhaps not in the most healthy way.

I think anyone that's ever felt, even for a moment, that the world was against them will find something in November to relate to.
I hope that you enjoy it.

Much love,
Ben


P.S.
For a small price, and for those with a kindle, November is available from amazon.
For those with any other e-reader - November is available for free as an epub from my website.
