The God Complex
He is God.
All knowing and all powerful,
Surveying his followers,
Cold, calculating attachment.
He can fix everything.
He is queen.
They cluster around him,
Wanting his love, his attention,
His word, his approval, his law.
He can fix everything.
He is concierge.
He knows how to please them,
They fall into his arms
manipulated, oblivious all his.
He can fix everything.
He is solitary.
They can’t understand him,
a mystery, unquestioned,
Undisputed, unargued, unseen.
He can fix everything.
He is scared.
The risk of being found out,
The fear of being understood,
Recognized, discovered, known.
He can fix everything.
He is human.
But he won’t let them see,
see him naked, see him true
So broken, so wayward, he cries.
He cannot fix himself.

Death and other Stars
Nothing seems fair and nothing seems right
When a life is snatched into the night
An empty feeling, a heavy heart
Cold readjustment in the dark
Life seems duller, the lines are blurred
We struggle to remember what we learned
The impact they had upon our lives
The little things that make you cry
No emotion seems quite correct
No thoughts or logic can connect
You sit alone, your hands gone numb
You sit and wonder what you've done
You think about the life you live
Then hate yourself for how it is
You scratch and claw yourself for meaning
You hate yourself for even being
You wonder why its always those
Who see no cons, only the pros
The ones not full of pointless hate
The ones who love, appreciate.
You may be inspired for a day
Vow to even change your ways
Promise to follow their legacy
That in you, they'll always be.
It's as pointless as a wish on a star
Even though it travelled far
Even though your wish was read
That shining star's already dead.

Armageddon : Gunslinger Girl by LessThanJoni Armageddon : Gunslinger Girl :iconlessthanjoni:LessThanJoni 1 10
Ice Cream Causes Depression.
Sometimes I just sit in class watching the door, wondering. I wonder what it would feel like to just walk out. Out of that classroom, out of the building, out of the gates… out of everything. I imagine it would feel good. I can almost feel how hard my heart would be beating, the weight lifted off my shoulders, the unmistakable power of knowing that I was leaving and no one could stop me. To feel that, to feel anything really, would be worth any number of detentions. This begs the question of why I don't do it, why I can't do it. The simple answer is I'm not sure I would feel anything, I'm not sure I could. And if I couldn't, if I didn't, I'd be stuck with a bad record and too many questions. To walk out that door would be a massive gamble, and to say the least, I'm not much of a gambler.
Instead, I count down the hours till I will be alone, till I can go home and cry. It's a long time to have to keep things together, but I've lasted longer. It used to be that as soon as I stepped

Henry (temporary title)
There's a man who works in a little toy store on the corner of a busy road. He's the kind of person that everyone hopes they don't turn out like. Maybe there was a day that he hoped that too, but thought it impossible. Sometimes you see, things just work out, sometimes you don't have to try. Maybe that's what he clung to, once upon a time, and maybe that was true. Just not for Henry. He works where he's always worked, he doesn't know any different. His parents gave him the job years ago when he was fifteen. By now he practically owns the place, except of course for the fact that he doesn't.
He has a bond with this place after all those years, he met his wife here. One of the young girls his parents hired. They only ever hire girls. She was ten years younger than him. Pretty. For a while they were happy.  But the girl wanted to grow up. She moved on from that dingy store on the corner.  Henry didn't seem to want to do, he didn't seem to try. She left Henry, decided t

Joni, 17 year old semi-professional photographer from Auckland, NZ.

I love the sound of Laura Marling.
I hate the sound of vacuum cleaners.
I have a violent emotional response to hospitals.
I analyse everything.
I'm spiritual but not religious.
I think I'd rather be deaf than blind.
I live in the past.
I miss myself more than anything.
I'm afraid of being alone.
I've watched The Princess Bride at least a hundred times.
I believe every dystopian novel I read.
I'm avoiding the inevitable.
I'm a unicorn.

Heyyyy Joni. Thought you'd like to know that I had a dream about you last night. Not in a creepy way at all, you were just in my house, so we went to the beach. You give excellent dream hugs, by the way.

Anyways, I don't really remember what happened, but it was really realistic and I cried when I woke up because it wasn't real.

That is all.
