What do you write?

I mainly write about the corruption in the world and the usa. I do some writing research on my experiences with meds and various substances, although that is more of a documentation. Also, I have a writing segment in my journal called stoned rhymes that I used to distract myself.

Oh yes, I remember you mentioning the stoned rhymes.

I do. Too bad I can’t seem to do it anymore because my brain is breaking down like a hoopty on a highway.

I also have a lot of difficulty writing anymore. My feeling is best summed up by the character of Peter Gibbons in the movie Office Space, “It’s not that I’m lazy, it’s that I just don’t care”.
I would like to thank you for teaching me a new word. I had never heard of a hoopty.

Yeah, you definitely need to have the capacity to care if you want to write. Otherwise it’s impossible.
And no problem. To me a new word is like a new toy. I’m glad to have given you one. Especially one that sounds so funny.

I used to write a lot
I love writing. But I hate writing.
So often the mess in the head I was trying to spill out on the pages, didn’t feel right, either not accurate or flawed, just something wrong in someway, so I would throw it out, delete it, erase it from history, angry at it, wanting to erase me from history even more, when I could not even put to words the things I saw, or felt, let alone what was in my mind.
I even had the misfortune of being “discovered”. Someone found my scribbles, was promptly put in a box after that, nice big fat label and all, “Fragile, return to sender”, left on the shelf in some storage room.
Didn’t write a single line for 3 years after that.
Tried on and off again, more times than not, it still just seemed wrong, couldn’t even do that thing right, oh well, delete, blank page. If only life was like that huh.
So all the poems, the stories, the truths and the visions, the tall tales and fantasies eventually stop being written down, it doesn’t seem to matter anyway.
Once in a while, I still try, but doesn’t seem like much is allowed to duck the delete button.
Then again, why should this thing be much different from anything else.
I hate my mind, how can I love what comes out of it.
I hate writing. I love writing.
