In which I write (really bad) poetry

Empath

I believe in empaths and telepaths – like the ones you see on star trek.
I believe that energy connects everyone, regardless of our awareness.
I feel energy from people I don’t know,
I feel the energy of arguments that aren’t even heated.
I feel the sads of people trying to communicate and making mistakes. I feel all of the things without ever knowing them.
I feel things stronger from people I know.
I am surrounded by feels
most of them aren’t even mine.
It gets to the point where I can’t tell
where mine end and theirs begin.
I internalize and never expel.
The more aware I am, the more sensitive I become.
I feel weak.
but
I wouldn’t trade this
for the world.
Even if they never know.

Too much

Listening: Imagine Dragons – Night Visions
Creating: Working on slowly painting and putting together my Archangel because I just picked up my caster (Lylyth the Herald) and need to build her, but dragon pieces were taking up all the space. It looks badass.

Dragon in progress

Feeling: relieved, and actively un-stressing (which can sometimes be a little stressful, but that’s what Imagine Dragons is for). Yesterday, well, actually since the weekend I’ve felt kind of on the verge of a meltdown between feeling generally overwhelmed with life and secret projects and mother’s day (don’t get me started) – it just didn’t let up until I let myself spill to some people. I don’t know why I suddenly (or not so suddenly) have a hard time telling people who I know care and are there for me that I’m feeling kind of depressed and on the verge of a breakdown. For some reason I feel like I need to take that on alone and it’s only after I break my own walls and admit it out loud (or in text) that I begin to feel better and less overwhelmed.
Playing: WoW – I’m almost almost to cap now! I’m over half-way to level 90, and I have entered the Vale of Eternal Blossoms so I’m actually battling level 90 things and earning more XP, which is great. I also found (finally) the alchemy vendor so I can make potions, and the person who you give the motes of harmony to. So I bought some Golden Lotus because you earn 2-3 XP/Skill with those in alchemy instead of just one. My Alchemy is 590-something now, which is exciting.
Watching: Strip Search! It’s become a habit of mine to draw while watching episodes. In that vein, tomorrow (Thursday 5/16) at 11pm EST I’m going to do a live-stream on KieryGeek with a friend and we’re going to do our version of a strip search challenge, so you should watch it. It auto-saves and posts to youtube too, so it’ll be up again after the fact.
