Endless

blogcorehouse:

I want our love to be endless like the sea

In depth and distance

Conversations

Exploration

We’re treading water alone

But together 

We float underwater

I could swim in your world for days

A momentary oasis

But we’re sinking right?

Yeah, if you want to view it that way

But I’ll meet you at the bottom of the ocean floor

And we’ll look up at a sky with ripples and tides

Remembering African-American Victims Injured By Police Brutality In America
Rev. Earl Baldwin Jr. (Pennsylvania): Tased By Pittsburgh Police While Praying & Giving Last Respects For His Deceased Stepson In A Hospital, Survived The Taser Attack, Has Now Sued Pittsburgh In A Civil Rights Lawsuit Over The Tasing
Reverend Earl Baldwin Jr. of Pittsburgh filed a civil rights lawsuit against police after they allegedly restrained and tased him in a hospital emergency room. Baldwin claims he was trying to pay his last respects to his dead stepson when the incident occurred.
According to Baldwin, he was trying to pray for 23-year-old Mileek Grissom in the UPMC Mercy Hospital, when officers pulled him away and tased him. “I needed to tell him his family was going to be OK,” Baldwin explained to WPXI. “I was going to do everything I could to make sure they were OK.”
Video from a hospital camera shows a distraught Baldwin handcuffed and surrounded by several officers trying to pull him away from his son, and one of the officers shooting him in the back with a taser. Officers say Baldwin was interfering while doctors tried to revive Grissom, but a family attorney says Grissom was dead and not being treated at the time.

The police department has not issued a statement about the lawsuit, but UPMC refutes Baldwin’s claim. “Clearly this was a stressful situation and a tragic loss for this family,” it said. “However, the allegations about the circumstances are inaccurate.”

Tori Baldwin, Grissom’s mother, was denied entry into the hospital at the time.

St. Patrick’s Day

Three years ago
St. Patrick’s day
I made two of the worst decisions I ever made

I hung out with the girl 
Who end up discarding me like a card
Face down
Shuffled the decks
I shouldn’t have walked with her when she was wasted
If she had walked away
That would have saved me a year 

I gave my friend and his girl at the time a ride 
It was the first week I had the whip
He decided to be a dick
And fingered her in the back seat while I drove to her place

I haven’t gone out for St. Patrick’s day since

I made my own luck without a three-leaf clover

Fiction: ‘The Loner’ | Ian Macks

Drew had made just enough progress to feel like he could function again.

The stalker days were done. He realized now that he had no choice but to leave his room and actually start living. He might have been in his early twenties, but his demeanor had reached mid-life crisis form. His Xbox 360 sat empty, seldom used when he used to play video games religiously. He now used Kleenex for blowing his nose rather than cleaning up after momentary releases of sadness. Nothing felt the same like it did in his teens. He was too old to hide anymore.

His parents didn’t have a clue that times had changed. “A nice guy like you will surely have that special someone come along sooner than later” chimed his mother while his dad dipped in and out of the house. The same way he dipped in and out of Drew’s life. “The furthest thing from tough” his pops would declare with false hubris. Drew knew behind that tough exterior, his father was hurting. This is what he didn’t want to become, or bring a girl he cared about into.

But the loneliness kept getting louder.
