Still Pittsburgh – #1LinerWeds

Important words from Dan Antion.

No Facilities

Over four years ago, I wrote a post titled “I am Pittsburgh” in which I tried to explain the roots I have in that city, and the characteristics that were established in me, as I grew up there. I return to that city for vacations, and I return to that city here on this blog. In fact, I think I’ve written about Pittsburgh more than I have about Hartford. After this weekend’s mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Squirrel Hill, I was trying to find a respectful way to return to that city again. I share the grief and anger, but that wasn’t what I wanted to talk about. I think that should be reserved for others

I wanted a way to explain what I understand about Pittsburgh, and about the neighborhood that was racked by this senseless hate crime.  I thought about reprising my…

Lonely

from sulaimaniac96

Sulaiman Hafeez

Lying down in my bed with a blanket draped over me, I keep tossing and turning unable to drift off to sleep. At 3 A.M, all my mind keeps thinking about is you.

I keep thinking about the time you used to lay right next to me with your messy hair strewn over your beautiful face, how melodious even your light-snores sounded and how your warm skin used to drive away the cold wind which is now creeping in inside my blanket.

I miss sitting beside you by the seaside and watching the sun rise through your eyes. Those times when I ran my fingers through your hair as you leaned your head against my shoulders while watching a movie.

Shake Me Loose…but let me sleep

from The Mind of RD REVILO

THE MIND OF RD REVILO

  • Funny, Some People Think
  • War will be different for them
  • They see the deadly destruction
  • But theirs won’t make them a victim
  • They’ll start the fight on Friday
  • Night
  • Then fight
  • Until Sunday
  • Back to work on Monday
  • And if they get injured or hurt
  • The enemy will nurture
  • Them back to work
  • So they can fight some more
  • And even up the score
  • No loss of electricity
  • Water will flow
  • No pain toward victory
  • No disappearance of people they know
  • It’ll be like a picnic
  • Only ants are pests
  • We’ll be in and out quick
  • Unlike the rest
  • Once they knowwe are serious
  • Fear will make the enemy delirious
  • And sue for peace
  • Just beating our chests will scare the beast
  • Our thunderous protests
  • Will make them confess
  • We’ll sing, we’ll cheer
  • The brave will bring up the rear
  • We’ll snarl, our fists we’ll ball
  • We’ll persist, insist…
