Lost – Twitery 9 by @christwitery, @chrisloft

Lost in darkest Africa; think I’m heading east.from-wwwmetacafecom-89546852455742
I was on my way home, three months ago.
Now life is a jungle – and you’re a wild, wild beast

about 4 hours ago from web

Lost, deep in my mind. No exit.
No doors to open or road to cross.
Blackness filled with a chaotic frenzy of chitter chatter.
Shadow of you.

about 4 hours ago from web

Lost, in vast chambers of my heart.
Devious turnings, random pathways.
I turned for help; but you were never there.
Pulsating, cold comfort.
about 3 hours ago from web

Lost, as I walk. No escape from torment.
No escape from emptiness.
You may as well walk beside me.
Your chatter is still so loud. No escape.

about 3 hours ago from web

Lost, as I take a breath.
My heart skips a beat;
I know she does not even look like you; you are miles away.
Rewarded by a stranger’s smile.
about 3 hours ago from web

Lost in my head. I cannot think straight any more;
some days I cannot think.
Some days: I am just not there.
Shadow of my former unlost self

about 3 hours ago from web

Lost as I walk down streets that I know.
Wander by lanes I’ve not seen,
past places I’ve never been,
find my way with a long piece of string
about 3 hours ago from web

Lost in the depths of confusion.
Lost in simplistic byways.
Fighting to recognize myself, and this condition.
Lost to myself and this world.

about 1 hour ago from web

Lost looking at the mirror.
Lost in my reflection.
Lost in some vague direction.
Lost today. When will I be found?
Where is my road map home
about 1 hour ago from web

Lost in France. Lost at home.
Lost dancing. Lost on a bus.
Lost at my destination.
Lost by the side of the road.
Lost on the road going home

about 1 hour ago from web

Lost in my lifestream.
Lost in the data, unsorted, uncollected.
475,382 requests lost in 4.55 ms – files lost,
data lost, records lost, lost
about 1 hour ago from web

Lost in time and lost in space.
Lost in endless soap opera.
Lost halfway thru the plot.
Lost before the finale, lost before the credits roll

about 1 hour ago from web

One day I was human. Now I am lost.
Once I was a part of my life.
Now my life is lost, literally lost,
laterally lost, lost as a last resort

Nomad, Gypsy Heart

Posted in Twitery by twitery on February 15, 2009

Nomad Gypsy Heart – Twitery 8 by @chrisloft, @christwitery

At a crossroads; waiting.GypsyLoft
An intersection; still.
At a junction; gathering my thoughts and possessions.
Am I just a passenger? Dusty pilgrim
about 2 hours ago from web

At a signpost: reluctant; where will the sun rise?
Always from that direction –
Always in a different light –
Casting long shadows toward me.

about 2 hours ago from web

Waiting for a ride? A vehicle supplied?
Driven from despair, not going any where.
Pale sun climbs one more degree,
steadily watching heaven.
about 2 hours ago from web

Aimless now; nomad, gypsy heart.
Cold mind, closed on a night like this.
One eye barely recognises the other,
thought you were someone else.

about 1 hour ago from web

A reflection of myself dances along rain-swept streets.
I do not know my name.
Not fast enought to be running;
too slowly for real direction
about 1 hour ago from web

I must take a path and purchase some purpose.
Too much choice or not enough?
Stripped away trappings of past lives,
echo a ligitant presence

about 1 hour ago from web

Meandering after a sparse repast;
untracked and unrecorded.
Dim lights blend fuzzy reality
into a soft, distant shadow; blurring hard lines.
about 1 hour ago from web

Reinvention after so many times
you don’t know who you are: where you are,
where you’ve been or who you’ve seen.
I know your face, it’s mine

about 1 hour ago from web

Don’t walk away: I know you.
Tell me your story or name.
Don’t fade away like a ghost in the night.
More than a fatal reflection; bent light
about 1 hour ago from web

Familiarity gives meaning to strange observation;
secrets I had kept from myself.
Darkness I’d never envisaged,
light most forbidden to see

about 1 hour ago from web

Lost in my lifestream.
Cast out like a beached surfer,
unable to balance a fine subtle line.
Unable to comprehend, overwhelming mass of data
37 minutes ago from web

Thoughts of return take you back to beginnings
that might never have been initiated
by the results returned from sifted, seiving data sources

Dead Star Dying

Posted in Twitery by twitery on February 14, 2009

Dead Star Dying – Twitery 7 by @chrisloft, @christwitery

Early morning anguish.eagle
Rampant expectancy.
Landmark recorded on a scroll somewhere.
Heal, shattered heart;
do not diverge from your ambition
7:45 AM yesterday from web

Dead star dying under stress;
systems flying uncompressed.
Simple forms coalesce,
into shadows of emptiness –
unbounded sensations of light.

9:22 PM yesterday from mobile web

Chasing your fire thru the night sky as you implode into oblivion;
relentlessly pursuing an inward spiral to your iron core.
Heart of steel.
10:30 PM yesterday from mobile web

Breathing a last gasp; a final intake of energy
that can only accelerate a rushing toward that center.
Dark iron heart bursting in eruption.
11:18 PM yesterday from mobile web

My love bursts across the sky; a massive supernova.
Energy that cannot die, a rolling song of thunder.
Resounding flare of heavenly fortune.
11:26 PM yesterday from mobile web

Atoms stripped of their electrons,
protons slammed into finite chunks,
neutrons freed of their encumerance –
dance gayly in striated embers.

12:24 AM today from web

Data falls out of a spiral helix, light bends in on itself.
Snap goes another phase transition,
seeding the cosmos in a void empty outreach.
12:28 AM today from web

Surounded by light so radiant
it condenses into cooling matter;
forming spiral bursts of stars
that stream out of self-organizing particles

1:04 AM today from web

Strange creatures with incredibly short half lives.
Refugees from a particle zoo of quantum suburbia.
Never there when you expect them to be
1:07 AM today from web

Space ruptures to admit expansion beyond comprehension.
Super flash scars the fabric of heaven,
leaving a narrative shadow of double meaning

1:22 AM today from web

Pulsars gleaming out of nowhere;
gamma beams of cosmic fire.
Missing mass that’s unaccounted;
darkly trod where matter never mattered before
1:42 AM today from web

Tiny little bits that no one has ever seen,
whirling around other tiny motes of flotsam and jetsom,
washed around within a vortex of bubbles

1:57 AM today from web

Stars strewn in spiral ripples across the heavens,
endlessly spinning a story of light, time and space and life –
pirouetting as dancers do.
2:11 AM today from web

My true love is trapped sleeping in a dream from another story.
How can I get out of this story
and wake her before the dark prince returns?

2:36 AM today from web

Flung across the distant night sky,
like grains of wheat in a harvest wind.
Shining like diamonds,
flickering like flames of fierce abandon.
2:55 AM today from web

Floating in a limbo half-way location;
between the earth and the stars.
Cannot keep my feet on the ground –
scraping the moon as she passes.

Twitcops – Twitery 6 by @chrisloft, @christwitery and with the unwitting collaboration of @Twitcops

Internet connection is mildly severed;
heart strings jarred and pulled.
Does emotion hurt more than physical wounds?
My anguìsh has returned
about 5 hours ago from mobile web

Okay, Tweeples, Officer Plod on duty tonight.
If I’m a bit slow responding…don’t worry…
my intellect is faster than my fingers!
@Twitcops about 5 hours ago from web

@Twitcops I would pluck the moon from the evening sky
to give to my true love;
even tho she spurns my gifts and scorns my goodly intentions.
about 5 hours ago from mobile web

@ChrisTwitery Poetry for me, Chris…
Are you coming onto me??
about 5 hours ago from web in reply to ChrisTwitery

@Twitcops I would steal the sun from the sky:
no one would notice til the sun failed to rise next morning,
plunging the world into darkness.
about 4 hours ago from mobile web

@ChrisTwitery Original or stolen from another???
about 5 hours ago from web in reply to ChrisTwitery

@Twitcops I’d fraudulently convert my true love’s heart:
so that she loved me instead of that clueless punk –
and run off with the proceeds
about 4 hours ago from mobile web

@Twitcops I would forge my own heart upon that of another
and utter claims upon her own gay heart
and carry her off into a sunless dominion.
about 4 hours ago from mobile web

@Twitcops Officer, officer my heart has been stolen;
my soul’s been broken,
my emotions have all run away.
An imposter has hijacked my heart
about 4 hours ago from mobile web

@ChrisTwitery How can I help, Chris?
Hearts really are not a job for Officer Plod,
but more for Officer Valentine, and she’s not on today
about 4 hours ago from web in reply to ChrisTwitery

My dearest, sweetest love:
I would steal all the world’s jewels and precious metals
if you would only love me.
@Twitcops would never notice.
about 4 hours ago from mobile web

For those “Dobbing in a friend”
for being their best twitter friend,
please add #dob-in-a-friend to your post.
http://twitcops.blogspot.com
@Twitcops about 4 hours ago from web

@Twitcops don’t worry about dobbing in a friend –
what about my heart? I need it!
There’s a big gaping hole where it used to be.
I’m in pain
about 4 hours ago from mobile web

@ChrisTwitery They say, no pain, no gain.
But my question is,
why did you let someone steal it in the first place?
Did you have security??
about 4 hours ago from web in reply to ChrisTwitery

@Twitcops My best friend’s abandoned me,
dumped me and left me littered on the side of the road,
miles from home.
I can’t dob her in to you
about 3 hours ago from mobile web

@ChrisTwitery Was your attacker a male or female?
Can you give me a description
about 4 hours ago from web in reply to ChrisTwitery

@Twitcops I cannot dob her in: she thrills me.
After she rips out my wounded heart – she’d kill me.
I can’t bear to be apart – it chills me.
about 3 hours ago from mobile web

ChrisTwitery Well I hate to break it to you, Chris,
you just did. Female…your best friend…side of the road…
all HUGE clues
about 4 hours ago from web in reply to ChrisTwitery

@ChrisTwitery Your passion WILLS me
to try to SKILL thee
to resist that which if given any more authority
will BILL thee!!!
about 3 hours ago from web in reply to ChrisTwitery

@Twitcops My heart has collided with that of another:
high up in space. Implosion is imminent.
Perhaps you should consider evacuation plans?
about 3 hours ago from mobile web

@ChrisTwitery Implosion, collapsing inward,
spiralling towards the centre of what?
A vacuum created by your absence…
rescue poor Chris

Quiet, Lonely Streets

Quiet, Lonely Streets – Twitery 5 by @chrisloft, @christwitery

The moon is full on a cloudy sky.train
Cool air will chill my darkened mind.
Feel lighter now as she glides by,
dancing homewards thru the night.
33 minutes ago from web

Dancing homewards, soon I’ll be;
though you’re no longer there with me.
Safely home? It has been too long,
is there any place where I belong?

30 minutes ago from web

Is there any place where I belong?
I cannot reach that tiny beacon.
Moon you shine thru the lonely night.
As I walk the quiet streets alone.
28 minutes ago from web

As I walk the quiet streets alone –
I wonder what is going on?
You should tell your friend the truth –
what are you trying to hide or prove?

19 minutes ago from web

As I walk beneath a giant moon:
I wish that I were walking home.
I’m pulled toward her smiling light,
but I’m only going to my room tonight.
17 minutes ago from web

Phone calls in the night, that I cannot make.
Threats and innuendo, twisted out of context.
Misunderstanding. She hasn’t told him the truth.

13 minutes ago from web

But I am the villain. I am the evil doer.
Cast me out and scorn my memory.
Dump me into the nearest ditch –
like a cast off piece of rubbish
11 minutes ago from web

Dump me further than he ever dumped you –
leave me there to find my own way, safely home.
I still walk the quiet lonely streets. Where am I?

10 minutes ago from web

Where am I? Not safely home? Not safe. Not home.
No where. In some crazy limbo. In some crazy hell.
Inside my crazy mind. Walk silent night.
8 minutes ago from web

Walk silent night. Thru lonely, quiet streets.
Searching for a safe place.
Searching for that haven where no one can touch your private mind

6 minutes ago from web

You won’t get out of my head. Cast you out, but you return.
Ring you up, but I am spurned.
Look at you, but I am burned and I cannot return.
4 minutes ago from web

I can never return to that place.
I will never share your mind,
your smile, your laughter, your dreams.
Cast out, dumped out in the shadows.

2 minutes ago from web

Full, bright moon shines from the shadows.
I walk the lonely, quiet streets;
searching for my way back home from the time when I was scorned

This moon is mine

This moon is mine


My star will shine brighter than Venus.
By the time it is full my heart will be quenched
and my soul will find redemption

my heart recovers from a knock-out blow.
Now I can laugh at a lunatic sky, smiling eternally.

Moonlight guides me homeward.
Oh joy, my heart is smiling.

Don’t break my heart again;
it has been far too much trouble.

# I would pluck the sun from the sky
for you to wear around your neck;
for it fades into insignificance –
when I look at your bright blue eyes

the night would be black compared to your beauty.
The sky would be emptied; and yours

Pixelated

Pixelated – by @christwitery, @chrisloft
Twitery 3

# My life is pixelated:
little bits delapidated;
abandoned and degraded:
scorned alone upon my earth
that’s faded and decayed beneath my feet.

1:02 AM Jan 31st from mobile web

# My world is pixelated:
nothing now is orchestrated;
thoughts are over rated in a day-to-day grind of life.
Resolving spirals slowly sliding.
1:16 AM Jan 31st from mobile web

# Worldview pixelated: information saturated;
heart all lacerated, pick it up and move along.
Ride off into the data stream: random objectives

2:27 AM Jan 31st from mobile web

# Lifestream execrated: rewrite undebated;
reboot startup code; now entering self-repair mode.
Paradigm shifting sub routine: goto @sudo: wait
3:34 AM Jan 31st from mobile web

# L290 consumer life mediated by media
L470 every one wants to sell a message or product
L190 the medium ìs the message: you are what you eat

3:48 AM Jan 31st from mobile web

# I am pixelating: square chunky organic thoughts,
grainy where they blur into some one else’s reality;
radiant when ideas converge into life.
3:55 AM Jan 31st from mobile web

# My mind is pixelated: almost inebriated.
Tiny bits so complicated, their pathways unrelated.
Old memories now faded as I reconstruct the day

10:59 PM Feb 1st from mobile web

# My life is generated by an emptiness unsated.
Doesn’t matter that I’ve waited forever and a day.
These thoughts now decimated pixelate away.
11:10 PM Feb 1st from mobile web

# In a day that’s percolated from ground-up angry thoughts;
can I move towards horizons where the shadows are obscured.
Aiming for the clouds

1:42 AM Feb 2nd from mobile web

# Ride a starry highway; shuttled from cab to bus.
Dumped on a distant byway; I don’t need no fuss.
Your scorn is obvious: wasted in the rush
1:53 AM Feb 2nd from mobile web

# Half moon, waxing to resolution of fullness;
Orion low in my night sky,
Venus brightly follows the sun over the ocean.
Full-mooned thoughts.

8:26 AM Feb 4th from Power Twitter

# Fragmented morning:
time dispersed and over reaching, hours out of sequence,
devoid of meaning – blanketed in silence while the masses roar.

Wind

Posted in Twitery by twitery on February 8, 2009

Wind – Twitery 2 by @chrisloft

Tonight I am the wind – hold back my head – ride whispers of the air.
Ride on a breath and circle, like a bird; riding the streams of night.

5:19 AM Jan 29th from web

Hold back my head and turn, off in the darkened distance;
out thru the starry night – fly down from a dizzy height,
turn to a far-off place.

5:48 AM Jan 29th from web

Out past the power station; turn by the lonely school;
down where they dance the tango;
rise up go round again – turn on a night-time breeze

5:53 AM Jan 29th from web

Glide over sparking pylons, sweep past the school on the hill,
wide by domestic driveways, skim thru a winding track;
turn, and then go back

6:02 AM Jan 29th from web

Close my eyes: rise, on waves of drifting sky;
out in a lonely night, dancing from a dance floor,
catch your breath and sigh, again and fly.

6:25 AM Jan 29th from web

Catch your breath.
Ride the wind, dive thru your dominion,
sigh thru wall of air, dive like there’s nothing there.
Turn in a graceful circle

2:37 PM Jan 29th from web

Hold back your head, be the wind, feel her whispered touch.
Close your eyes, float and glide between airified undercurrents.
Don’t hold back

2:45 PM Jan 29th from web

Power out in heatwave, fourty one degrees;
fans off computer off; broadband has ceased.
Cigarette in the front yard, slightly cooling breeze

5:58 PM Jan 29th from web

Power restored, I’m whole again, not deleted;
I have not died. Not this time.
Pick up bits and jiggle them all back together: like my life.

6:25 PM Jan 29th from web

Tonight I’m a wind, thoughts on a breath,
dreams of a moment, riding the night on fingers of air,
fresh from the mountain, hot from the sun.

1:22 AM Jan 30th from web

Cool as water, whisper so silent,
breathing so gentle, dark as the night.
Riding the waves of meandering moments,
cast the night like a scar .

1:24 AM Jan 30th from web

Hold back your head, feel trembling begining,
danger ahead as you float through your rage.
Glide through misty aparitions – with your grace.

1:29 AM Jan 30th from web

Round, fly around and circle.
Get your bearings from shapes on the ground.
Fly from your markers, clockwise in circles, gentle flying around

1:31 AM Jan 30th from web

Take these as anchors that connote all meaning,
fix on the landscape that lies under your wings.
Anchor your bearings and fly like the wind.

1:33 AM Jan 30th from web

Now hold back my head.
Now I can stand and ride the wind:
over houses, over streets,
over fields and trees;
now I am a shadow of the breeze.

3:12 AM Jan 30th from web

Now I can stand here and be there.
I am the wind. I am not rooted to this earth.
I am freed of its shackles,
I am master of its tenuous hold

3:26 AM Jan 30th from web

And now I am. And now I am beginning.
I am the raging wind. I am the quiet breeze.
I am the whisper of your name as I float above the trees.

5:11 AM Jan 30th from web

As I stand here all alone – screaming out your name;
I cast my eyes above you, searching for your smile.
Piercing blue eyes – that scorn me.

5:14 AM Jan 30th from web

Hold back my head, become the wind,
search for your smile, smiling eyes,
chasms I can no longer enter.
Places that are forbidden to my soul.

5:16 AM Jan 30th from web

Lost in the wind. Lost from your heart.
Lost from your smiles.
Whisper my name and bring me back to life;
or I die here in this lonely cell.

5:19 AM Jan 30th from web

Perigee Moon @ Black Point

Perigee Moon @ Black Point

Starting to warm up in town,
up the coast to cool,
sit on a beach, escape the sun.
Perigee moon relinquished,
seems my heart is extinguished

12:45 PM Jan 12th from Power Twitter

Perigee moon, rolling the waters,
chasing the magnetic dawn;
Orbital journey, rolling lunar storm,
bipolar field, I have a yearning; for you

1:20 AM Jan 12th from Power Twitter

Perigee moon your hold is still strong,
even at this far distance.
Riding the storm, the sight of me scorned,
I must offer you no resistance

2:54 AM Jan 12th from web

Sleeping on the beach at Black Point
under a huge orange moon.
Perigee moon reflect on the waters,
light my way back home.

4:04 AM Jan 13th from mobile web

Moon casts a shadow on beach;
can I walk to places out of reach?
Should I wait for the morning to begin?
Or should I try and catch the wind?

4:49 AM Jan 13th from mobile web

The sea speaks in strange voices.
I will not contemplate these choices.
I struggle with my footsteps in the sand.
Full mooned dark thoughts.

5:08 AM Jan 13th from mobile web

Now I dream that there’s nothing left in my life,

Chris Loft at the beach, long way off: out of reach.
What am I doing? Absolutely nothing, except keeping cool.
Wild bushfires up the coast.

3:35 PM Jan 14th from mobile web

Watching boats, wind surfers,
pelicans, mantra rays.
Cooling down; doing nothing.
This is a nice break;
I have not been to beach for years.

7:35 PM Jan 14th from mobile web

Cold dawn at Black Point,
faint light whispers from a chilly dark sky.
Gulls scavenge on the beach;
my heart is scoured for your breakfast

6:39 AM Jan 15th from mobile web

Lost at Black Point.
Trying not to think of her.
Pretending I’m not in love – not working.
Went for a walk.
Why were you walking next to me?
