The Assembled Poems are a creative writing practice based around the line-by-line construction of poems using found-text from twitter. Relying heavily on a set of custom filtering and sorting tools large volumes of tweets are parsed, scanned, and then manually assembled into poems. Some samples:
####Of Men And Insecurities
I once cut a fly in half with scissors
It looked like an accident
But it’s a horrible Idea
it’s so hard not to cry right now
it’s like a part of my heart is gone
This is how my week goes:
I envy a lot of people
I want to forget you
i hope i dont throw up
Then I love you
That’s how it been lately
this is quite the dilemma
But I wanna be alive.
I wanna live right
Without an ounce of selfishness
Just sitting in the dark
of my bones and
The stone that the builder refuse,
The willingness to grow and change
Too grown for my age
You have been my dream
of being bored,
of our beings;
Of you and me.
you deserve the best
the sound of the waves collide
the sweetness of your denial.
Is there really no escape?
like a river to the red sea
Or a time machine
Or a teen suicide
That is the most ridiculous thing
That’s What Love Is All About
The future promises nothing

####Aries Are The Type To Stay By Your Side Through The Toughest Of Times When Everybody Else Has Walked Away
How could I forget Berlin?
i would just stand there
In the middle of the road
In the sky of love
With no more words to say
just a part of your story ♥
then you flew out of my life
and I ran away,
and I knew that it was real
but i don’t want you to.
I wonder if I was wrong
Or if I should go back to how I was
If not, then never again.
Why are the corners so deep
Why are decisions so hard to make?
I just landed in Montreal
into a strange town
In a strange place
held, and there you were
And there you will always be
I’ll just stop and say:
You can take my life
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
and I will find you, and I will reach you
I want to be an example of love
To be mistaken
To be honest
to be just like you.
take a deep breath and go slowly
