This is a poem about poetry
Poetry that rolls with the flow
Flow that continues down the hill
The hill of life that goes forever down
Down into the depths of despair
Despair that brings all to their knees
Knees that bleed from the impact of life
Life that goes on until death
Death comes for us all
All we are will be carried by memories
Memories fade like passion’s flare
Flares that shoot into the sky
Skies that are brightened up by sparks
Sparks that look like falling stars
Stars that harbor distance planets
Planets that may hold alien life
Life that blooms everywhere
Everywhere around us
Us who live and exist through time
Time that has a beat
A beat that measures the flow
The flow of poetry
Poetry that comes out of my fingers
Fingers that fly upon the keyboard
The keyboard that relays this poem
This poem that went to the far edges of the universe

Part of me wishes I had made up the term “Hyper Boredom” but I didn’t. Its been bounced around for a bit, used as a title to a blog or three, and been dropped a few times by other bloggers just rambling on. One in particular listed boredom as a huge thing with suicide, and mentioned that most mental illnesses either are boredom, or are rooted in boredom.
For the longest time, I’ve fully believed that boredom was a HUGE issue, and it iss odd to watch it in the current teenage generation. I’ve experienced boredom, a huge amount of it, all my life. But there’s something more to it now....

There are few things in this world as decadent and wonderful as chocolate. I truly feel sorry for those that don’t like the stuff, because they are truly missing out. Throughout my life, I’ve eaten quite a bit of chocolate. I’ve even taken a class on how to eat chocolate with wine.
Being an amateur chef, I find flavors to be one of the greatest things about being human. You can do so much with flavors and taste and spices...yeah, I can go on and on. But when you find places that does such thing with chocolate, you know you’ve found an amazing place.
