Move to California.

What do I do from here?

.

I quit writing for a while because I just didn’t have anything left in me. No love nor god to guide me.

On the love end, well. She was off in some other city, having late night LCD Soundsystem nights into her city, riverwalks and city parks strewn from tip to toe in lights, No curfews, no lack of rights.

She said not to take it personally, that she was leaving the city, not me.

But I am this city.
These streets are my streets,
these potholed veins my blood streams
these bars the future haunts-

my
broken obelisk.

This whole goddamn time* reeks,
you know?

.

She was abusive,
though in this warped mind I’d argue
she wouldn’t have been if I didn’t let her be
and maybe she just didn’t want me to let her be
anymore.

There seems to be something rotten in that, huh?

.

My sister asked why she was here
i didn’t really have much an answer.

“So that we know what bad looks like,
for when I finally find good?”

.

.

hmmm.

      • I wrote it. But what’s more is only a comfort I can offer from a distance. A comfort for me, at least. A selfish one. I’m glad you are here.

        I am better, though still pretty rattled.
        It’s getting better.

        Don’t mind the tags, I’m just fishing.

        Also, you should really let me know if what I’m writing needs refinement. I won’t get better if I’m just fawned over.
        fyi.

      • I will. But keep in mind that creative writing has no rules. When I was a freelance editor, it was all I could do to allow creative liberty in form. Look at Joyce. As far as your writing goes when it’s not meant to be creative, well, I fawn over it too. You are an excellent writer, and against your control or mine, against your want, I have a weakness for excellent writing. Yours in particular.
