A history of my words. Some of them really matter to me

Glass Bottles reviews
I'm trying something new: a collection. Usually I have an image in my head and write it out several different ways until the words say what I want them to. I'm planning for this to be a collection of various angles on the same mental image. Like messages in bottles. Sending multiple versions out there.

The Looking Glass
It midly bothers me when people mash Through the Looking Glass into Alice in Wonderland or vice versa, but that's not really related to this poem. Except all my references are post-wonderland.

A reminder to be more kind to our past selves for the actions we took with the knowledge we had.

I Thought It Was Love
Perfectly unspoken... written into the spaces between fingertips and spines, spilled just inside the rims of coffee cups, in every layer of clothing.

Blood in the Water reviews
No summary for this one; it's very short. Mildly graphic/ morbid? Very metaphorical.

Public Access
I've come the closest to sharing than I ever have before, but it takes far less courage to simply celebrate those who have the confidence to believe in their own skill.

The Mystery of Memory reviews
I can't even remember who this was about, but the fiction makes me nostalgic for memories I never had.

Intangible
Summaries for poems always seem a bit pointless, as the appeal to poetry is partially in the misunderstandings.

I'm struggling with this summary. Feel free to ask if you want clarification on the thought process behind the words.

Definitely a metaphor, not a horror story. Maybe graphic? Sorry.

Time Capsule reviews
This room is a time capsule. Letters from him in the bedside drawer. Pictures of her tucked into the mirror.

Casual reviews
We're all craving stability but rejecting structure. Definitely a generation of paradoxes. But hey, at least our emotions are safe, right?

Melodies
If you think this one is about you, it isn't. (I've officially given up on summaries. I'm now using this space to address people I know are reading this).

12
So sometimes I listen to three tabs of the same song, letting them overlap by 5 to 10 seconds until the song is unrecognizable. This is what comes out of that madness. No real title. 12 has no significance; I'm just tired of labeling these with words right now.

Unspoken reviews
Not really what I intended to say about this, or how I intended to say it. But it's nice to have an outlet. Also feels weird because now quite a few people I know in the actual world have the capability of reading this and I'm trying very hard not to let that affect my usual stream of nonsense on here.

Am I Allowed to Swear in the Title?
Exhaling all your breath while saying your favorite four letter word is the equivalent to how I felt while writing this. Not perfected yet, but I'm not afraid to put a draft up on here.

Tomorrow reviews
This is more to remind me of who I am than to lure any readers in. I am still made of memories I once had. Very short.

A House Divided reviews
Standing together despite everything is so important. I know the election is super controversial, but hate and fear aren't going to automatically break through all the corruption. Remember, there are so many things you have a say in, especially on smaller scales. Getting involved locally and within your state will make more of a difference than protesting the past.
