next to the painting of flames,
and I remember that time, years ago,
when the psychiatrist said, “You feel too much,
you are too sensitive, take these,”
giving me a bottle of pills. I took them
to the beach, watched light become flame
on the water, and along the ragged cliffs,
small flowers like blue stars,
the world a painting
I couldn’t live in.
I opened the bottle, then put it down,
pills spilling on the sand.
Waves carried the flames
and didn’t mind the burning,
the arising from and disappearing
into the vastness. I swam,
let the waves take me,
then treaded water, looking at the sky,
a silver tray full
of the most beautiful nothing.
I swam back, the water was black,
I could sink beyond caring,
but I wanted to live,
to be there
with the beauty and the burning
and let it be too much.

Hey, Tumblr I guess doesn’t tell me when I have asks so I’m just seeing this.
The author of the poem is me, Maggie McEvoy. This blog, HepKat, is my personal blog, but I reblogged it from my writing blog, Withafocusinpoetry.tumblr.com
All original material on that blog is copyrighted by me.
Hope that helps.
So contrary to popular belief, I’m actually not a Photography major. I’m a Sculpture major and I graduate from Purchase College in about a month! Us seniors have been raising money to put on a show as a collective of emerging artists in New York City and we’ve only got 13 days left to raise it. We’ve raised over $2,000 so far and we’re so close. I made this video to give some insight into us seniors and to show the world how passionate and excited we are to showcase our work in New York City! Please, if you have the time, watch the video above and donate to our indiegogo at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/premium-quality-sculpture-show
If you can’t donate, then even a quick like or reblog would help!
