Sociopath – A Poem

Sociopath

The march of dullness crawls across line and page,
slowly wrapping up, but never ending, the strain of today.
My emotions a long maelstrom, me their long victim,
both at last rest in the only way I know: shipwreck.

The pathos has caught up at last to my emaciated mind,
and my limbic motors sputter, spiral, and then shatter.
The threshold is met, the cap is reached,
and the last emotional calorie is spent. Penniless.

Sociopath is a charged word, and this place is hardly permanent,
an ugly truck stop on this death-bound rain-soaked drive,
but I am beautifully numb, anesthized by overdrive,
having cared so much that all caring is used. Careless.

I’ve always been afraid of this bare-soul waste,
when the lacrimosa has dried up and the cruel jester laughs
at how the body moves on even when tears are left ungenerated.
Movement is gyration, stillness is stoney. I remain.

Although reduced to the life of an automaton,
I can yet render robotic praise,
because God made the morphine as well as the thorn.

TRANSPHORIA Transgender Pop Song Mash-up (Demo)

Droppin Logic

So this Christmas break I was on my back with the flu and I got bored, and I ended up making this trans-themed mash-up (very Dj Earworm inspired although not nearly as smooth). Last month I also started making a music video for it, and at some point I’ll release the whole thing as an awesome inspiring trans-2014 Youtube sensation. As of right now I don’t have the time to finish it, but the song demo is done.

There’s a lot of empty spaces in the beginning of the song which will be filled by soudbytes from clips of trans vloggers, trans news items, and film quotes.

Please give me feedback! I’m looking for constructive criticism. This mash-up was a learning experience, and hopefully the next one will be better. If there are any parts that you found awkward or in need of tweaking, please let me know.
