When Despair Left Me

I can remember when the sun never shined. When the earth was stale when I ought to have been blind. Every movement every turn of the head, found the black of night and the slumber left my bed. I pretend to practice righteousness but the world has taught me not. Especially when I give thought…

Rest For Our Souls

The world it does reveal and destroy; it has certainly changed this boy. When life conspires to take your joy flight or fight ways we must employ. I have stood to fight the good fight with all my strength, will and might. My preachers they were not right, fighting often is not quite so polite….

Set Truth Free

Lend me an ear please I need tame neurons firing deep inside my brain. To the brink I pray I’m found sane by those who could think the same. Of games that leave us perplexed. Of how our emotions get wrecked and our psyche they tend to effect. Let them leave not bitter aspects. Allow…

Death Makes Us Kin

I’m far from being damn special. Yet the reaper finds I’m acceptable. Let coldness for it be reciprocal, it brings us all to be connectable. Berate fellow souls we should not for we can see our common spot. In large fields of tombstone lots we’ll be what the earth has forgot. The grave’s our common…

Virtues In Reality

Scholars teach me nothing of what my mind finds keen. Nuanced can be the scene of what I allow light to bring. Crashing high above the sky in thunderous chasms do lie vast explosions in vast supply seen not by the human eye. We paint our truthes in a hue, understood by what we knew,…

The Way We Loved

Travel did I once our road. Release did I my heavy load. Our story remains untold beyond what some suppose. A look speaks countless words in a language that gives birth to ideas others may find absurd. Ones between us that occurred. Such a bond is hard to break, we knew at the start the…

Serving To Pacify

Are you going to leave this open space in me? Now you make me see now what I can truly be. Educated I already am with knowing true bliss a myth. You supplied to pacify this. You did so with your kiss. If you drift away so sublime search in time I’ll try to find…

A Vast Gaze

I find the universe in your eyes. Celestial bodies make you wise. For the times I’ve stood amazed, wonder how I did become so brave. Maybe because your relm’s not cold. I can not believe what in you I behold. I see what I desire the most so clear. As in your eyes wonderous sights…

Past Our Hell

Hold together as if a tight knot. Arms and legs where time’s forgot. Throw thoughts around the room. Paint it all black if it you choose. Or sing tunes among a choir. Find the notes heart’s desire. You perspire, in journeys call. Breathe friends; fear not at all. Construct halls that echo around. So you…

In The Age Of Bitter Rage

What cost can I anticipate to pay for the ransoms of this long day? My blood, sweat and tears say, until end of days I’ll live this way. Mortar and brick of tainted walls that stand in my way so very tall, stand they where people do fall. A heart do the walls have not…

While In Solace

Times, every now and then, I wrestle for time to begin in solitude where I am in so I might look deep within. In silence I can hear clear echos of what I hold dear. They reverberate so near where in my heart appears. To make sense of sound where alone I have found, to…

The Battles You’ve Won

I know your well earned fame. From mountains you overcame. None I know could do the same; and none did you have to blame. See the world at the top so clear but beneath clouds it dissapears. Beneath, vision is lost in great fear; at the precipice one’s sight is clear. Suffer not the clamor…

I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger award. I humbly recieve this nomination with deep gratitude. I would like to thank Dwight at Roth Poetry for nominating me for this award. Click here to visit his site. I have to admit I started this site with the intention of it being something to share…

Untethered Hands

Maybe known is such, that I yearn so much for a sustaining crutch. A sentimental touch. I confess I was scared from not being prepared, nor being quite aware, that you sit right there. Reading a scattered mind, searching to try and find the larger scope of design from what I’ve left behind. As I…

An Ode To Doug: A Rogue Hornet Who Left Me No Choice

It was a day like any other when first I encountered him. While sitting in my chair I sipped coffee whilst basking in the warm sun, taking slow drags off my cigarette. My head was looking down at my phone in my lap when I guess this little dude had decided to fly my way…

Where Gilded Dreams Appear

Gilded dreams do appear, but the key to life is not here. Scattered thoughts do clear my somberness now to cheer. Standing back from the paper searching my words I do labor. It’s my confession to my savior. No more of, “I’ll think of it later.” Not suppressing I do create places where my mental…

A Rapid Pulse

Your memory’s quite a companion. With time they’ve turned phantom. It is a treasonous thought I abandon those feelings I felt I won’t feel them. A decade passed since I was betrayed, emotionally I almost found a grave. My pulse runs rapid now I’m scathed. Thinking things where I was enslaved. I ponder whether I…

A Shelter Of Words

Placate me maybe today; maybe words could erase sadness that’s on my face. Faith I have in your ways. It is in your abilities, use your logic to see. Past the complexity you say I tend to be. The strife we’ll dispel by stories we do tell. We’ll say we are well. Casting our own…

The Blindness Of Pride

“Pride is the parent of destruction, pride eats the mind and the heart and the soul alive.” -Anne Rice I shudder to try and address those whom would confess they do not possess regret for subjecting truth to duress. Pride at times is useful unless it is not truthful. Pride can make lies usual; burying…
