I'm not very interesting. These are just a few of my poems.

Psychopathica

Subtle it's subversion it just catches the eye.
Can't tell which diversions really the greater lie.
Take caution it's pervasive yet it goes undetected.
Subconsciously persuasive now your mind is infected.
Unknowingly you've now become part of...

unyielding

What i've woven hardly matters.
With my tapestry in tatters.
Lay in place adorned with shadow.
Await that sunlit meadow.
But the harvest cannot grow,
Without one to make it...

Twisted tongue

Melancholy melody of mania and madness.
Ceaseless Swan song a symphony of sadness.
Counter to composure comes cacophony of chorus.
Oscillating operatic overture of...

I know she doesn't love me.
She visits everyone.
When its looking bright.
She'll shade me from the sun.
She is all I've got.
Probably my best friend.
Though she isn't real.
I like to pretend
It's a sense of duty.
Much less out of care.

OK I'll look into that. Sounds like they encountered the "nords". A.k.a tall blondes.
If she's got precognitive or clairvoyant abilities do not let anyone tell her otherwise. I've known and know people with abilities (real ones, not those TV fraudsters) and we need them (I think they're "old blood"). She's probably going to be a very special person (I mean obviously but not just granddaughter special).

That is correct. I'm from the part that wasn't settled by convicts. Funnily enough it has very seedy underbelly according to my friend (the extremely smart one). She's probably closer to a sociopath (do not ever, ever get on her bad side...ever).

really? What's the point of going to jail or whatever happened in your case if they just keep punishing someone indefinitely? So redemption counts for nothing? My brother is in jail at the moment hes a narcissist (definitely), possibly closer to a full blown psychopath pretty sure. He's definitely on the anti-social spectrum because he doesn't really have empathy. He's very fun to debate.
I want to see Japan too but don't have the $$. I've been to America though i liked it. The "space" feels different from here it's strange.

Wow! That's pretty cool. I've heard and seen stuff about cattle mutilations I've been into that sort of stuff (aliens, paranormal) my whole life it's really interesting I don't shy away from the occult, it's knowledge its beneficial knowing more about things. I don't doubt for a second people know more about this like, the military or the so called "elites". I'm pretty certain we're a result of genetic manipulation by aliens. That idea occurred to me probably 20+ years ago when I was on a "spiritual" kick. Like Chakra point stuff. It was actually very beneficial, had some interesting epiphanies.
Your story whole is pretty cool, you've had an interesting life. They probably appreciated that you were curious and asking for snacks, why not. I've probably heard about the San Benito, TX incidents but i will look it up.

Nice one, That was good, well put. I understand the whole basic level of respect for one another thing. This is just insanity though, legitimate insanity. A lot of them seem entirely unaware their motivations are absurd.

you were abducted by aliens? For real? Greys, Nords, or reptilian? That stuff fascinates me, for a number of reasons. I think they may be jealous because you didn't even try and you had contact. Not to burst your bubble but I'm sure plenty of people would have wanted to do the same but there you all are. If you can though haunt the shit out of them. I've got people on my list for when I die, 1 main person really.
What sort of stone are they talking about? It was also a jewel in one rewrite.

I knew things weren't good but I didn't know things were quite that dire. That absolutely sucks I'm sorry man. I really hope things work out. I'm convinced your country is a social experiment (all of them are to a degree I suppose). Especially when it comes to veterans (health care in general) its almost like, sure they wanna win whatever phoney war they start but they hope everyone that fought for them doesn't come back either. I guess they see you as loose ends considering you likely have a counter narrative to what they tell the public. Give 'em hell dude. Anyone that's making things harder for you at this time is weak.

If they're actually in league with something beyond this realm they're going to be disappointed they'll either be food or toys or slaves.

Sounds like you're describing a psychopath. They're certainly troubling and somewhat of a conundrum, fun to argue with though.

That build up was awesome! I could feel the brutality, I actually thought you might be genuinely angry.

"Obliterating the mere idea of rebellion" that line, I liked it all but that line was extra spiteful.

It's mainly the second line that requires a bit of mental gymnastics but I made sure to look up the exact meanings of the couple things I was unsure on. As for the hat It was a nice beret, far better than a berating. Thank you.
