Poem: Nervousness Instilled

An epilogue of two tongues tide
From sorrows where I  often reside
An expression of self-loathing and secrete
The still beating heart of a love now gone
Relentlessly pushing, rapid, fire
Two hearts caught up in one desire
Sex, aggression, spite
Strung together upon one ill night
A murderous conflict hit the surface
Love broke up and I fell nervous.


Love and junk.

Now I’m not saying I’m an expert of love. Maybe I’m expert of being out-of-love. Is that a thing? It is today! Here’s your not-so-expert advice! Love comes in many different shapes and sizes. Some people love their mom, others love their cat, or both! But I would hope the love you have for your furry friend is different for the love you have for your mom. (Yuck)

The type of love I want to focus on today is the intimate love one holds for their other half.
It has always been my belief since a young age that love is part involuntary emotion and part choice. The emotional aspect or as I like to refer to it as: the lame stuff comes almost immediately. Y’know that lame old shit where you get stupid butterflies and rosey cheeks and all that kindergarten BS.  Okay so you’re emotional towards someone. What’s next?

The choice is next. Here’s the part where your effort and your heart truly comes into play. You make the deliberate decision to love the person you’re with. You gotta damn well do the thing that makes you fall into love and you keep on doing it. If you’re in love with her laugh, it’s your job to keep her laughing. If you’re in love with her smell, you breathe her in daily. Effort and loving someone is a choice. You choose to do the thing that keeps you in love. If you stop doing the thing? Guess what? Your relationship crumbles and oh look Sally’s banging the next broad in line because you let yourself fall out of love.

“But Des, what happens if the emotions start to fade?” Ah, my friend. The emotions that were once there will continue to surface as long as you’re putting in your efforts. Say you’re in love with your girls smell. Maybe she smells like some sexy perfume and it gets you all worked up.. your heart starts pounding, your hands start to sweat. Okay, so on her birthday or for Christmas, you buy her the perfume and keep breathing it in. It’s not really rocket science unless you make it that way.

In order to stay in love you need to do the thing that keeps you falling in love or you’ll be hooped. 

Here’s 5 hilarious tips on remaining in love/not fucking it up/not moving too fast/ okay they’re just funny things I want to write.
(This from a complete relationship failure.. you’re welcome!) :


1. Spontaneously touch her boobs. Bitches love boob touching.
I’m kidding. Kinda. Touch her boobs but y’know do it with love in your eyes. Let the emotions flow through you. (Easy, tiger)

2. Keep them on their toes- tell them you love them on the first date!
Don’t fucking do this. Don’t be dumb now. This is a huge mistake hahahaha… ha. Embarassing.

3. Do the thing, to do the thing.. 
Grasp the concept of love right away by also grasping her butt. Butt touching is an intimate love affair. Warning: spontaneous ass smacking may leave you with a bruised face or ball, just saying.

4. Throw food into her mouth when she’s not looking.
This is a guarantee for boom town. Women love when you randomly fill their stomachs..
(I’ll just leave that there… LOL)

5. Pull her off the bed mid sleep.
This is a surefire winner winner.  You know, most women really love being woken up and thrown to the floor. It’s like a inanimate aphrodisiac.


Self Expression vs Repression

Self expression is a tool that lets our authenticity shine. Opposite to its opposing party, self expression matches the inner desires to be who we really want to be.

But how do we self express when we are told from a young age to just fit in? To just be mundane and “normal?” Repression is a grave cunt. In order to express you must first remove the repression. The most definitive way to manage and neglect repression is to starve it out. Don’t feed into it or you will lose your most authentic self.

Authenticity is a design that comes from within. Designate yourself to a lifestyle of self expression and you will be swept away by greatness. Be bold, question everything, never back down from your right to express and navigate your own life.

Here are 4 keys to becoming the most authentic you that you can be:

1. Never lose sight of what makes you different from the rest of the group.

2. Always endeavour in something artistic that shows your abilities and your expressions.

3. Dream with your eyes wide open. Turn your life into something worth dreaming over.

4. Never back down from yourself. Present yourself in such a way that your very presence demands attention.


Food for Thought:

A contradiction is a manifestation that actually helps define our growth. Whenever we begin to contradict ourselves it typically is a sign that we’re  going through an emotional grow spurt. It literally means that down the line our opinion or idea, has changed; and whether that change is a good one is neither here nor there. The concept is that a contradicting thought or attitude may inflict upon your personal development as a human being. Deciding whether you like or dislike this personal road to a new you is totally within your reach.

As long as you’re not turning into a douche canoe whilst contradicting yourself, you’re probably doing alright. Contradictions are meant so that our ideas can grow and exteriorize into something fresh. That ultimately makes our personality regimen, stronger. That’s fucking awesome.

So, next time you have a contradicting thought or idea, I dare you to take note of it and then investigate how your mentality has adjusted. This type of investigation is crucial to you becoming the best version of yourself. In order to figure out the key components of who we are we need to stop and evaluate the situation and then move forward.


Poem: Once upon a season

We fell in love while snowflakes kissed our noses

I didn’t know that eventually my favourite flowers would soon become roses

As winter faded and spring took its turn

I found myself without your yearning

Whiskey kisses the places your lips once sat

I’ve been celebate for six lonely months now

Celebacy has taught me to love myself

Something you’ve never done

I had the bullets but you held the gun

You pulled the trigger and unleashed the wounds

And all I did was sit and swoon.


Poem: The Poison

The venom runs down my veins.

It makes me gasp for breaths of air

I lose control of my senses

And I taste you again.

And I can’t stop.

It’s the poison that keeps calling my name

And I cower upon your arrival

Call me pathetic,  desperate and doomed

For I loved you as I did bloom

Now the taste is just betrayal

While I sip whiskey and peach ale.


Bonding and Interconnecting

It’s important for us as individuals to spend time bonding with family members and friends. It’s especially important to keep continuous connections going with those far and wide. This can be done through phone calls, instant messaging and by mail. There are many people in our lives we should continue to bother bonding with. But, I want to place an emphasis on friendships today. It is extremely important to keep in contact with those who have always been there for you. Those are your friends. Friendships need to be planted, treated and remembered in order to grow.

Friendships are some of the most important intimate connections we could make homie! It’s real important to keep those friends-a-growin’ So if you have a friend out there that treats you right and you two haven’t spoke in awhile. Try picking up the phone and reaching out. I bet they would appreciate it. Also, coffee dates go a long, long way. You can never have too much coffee. PS: Tell your friends you love them. Treat them like family.

Here’s 10 fun ideas you can do to bond with your friends (or family.)

1. Go to the gym together

2. Go to trampoline world

3. Travel together

4. Road-trips

5. Dog parks!

6. Have a movie marathon

7. Go to the zoo

8. Go to the beach

9.Go to a haunted house

10. Experience a concert together




Eliminating Self-Doubt

Self-doubt is something every one seems to struggle with at least once in their lifetime. It is only human nature to want to question things and to second guess them. The problem with this, is that eventually self doubting behaviours become admissible.

We as human beings, tend to fall into the pattern of doubting ourselves and it’s frankly, not good. When we begin to fall into these patterns we eventually lose all will to carry onward because we are so in debt to our doubts. It’s clearly a negative concept. Self doubting behaviours deteriorate the person we have the potential to become. Doubt in itself is okay but when it’s paired with something as sensitive as a person’s well being, it becomes exhausting. Don’t let yourself fall into the self doubting booby traps! You are capable. You are able. You have worth.

Deterioration within who you are as a person as a result of self doubt can be devestating. It is possible to reach a point of always doubting yourself.

With that being said, here are my  3 must follow steps for eliminating self-doubt.

1. Come to terms with whatever it is you are trying to achieve.

Recognize that upon first try there may be pitfalls and it’s normal and okay. But, you must proceed.

2. Talk yourself through your doubting behaviour. 

Tell yourself it’s okay to be scared but it is not okay to let doubt control you.

3. Release the pressure and disengage when you need to.

Every now and then you’re going to need to disengage. By this I literally mean take a break. Walk away from whatever it is you’re trying to do and come back to it within a few minutes.


Poem: Emotional Tides

Triggered by emotions and mocked by third degree burns
I spent my hours counting sheep upon a lions back
Detailed worship in a house of horrors
Memories that reinstate the malignant eye
Pass through me like a fire within a hallway
Nothing makes sense since you walked with wolves
I drench my sorrows within the wounds of a succubus
