Skulls On Floors Ignored

Beaten bruise bore in a head a scream of self discovery it reveals an identity. A blood it has fallen on streets so familiar where my mind sees our leaders clearer. Anger lifting me up it is not for my pride. Fire I supply anger it rises as innocents die. I see children leave this…

Real Swallowed Pills

I keep hands tied with strong twine. They seep an ink my mind connives. Every twist and every turn a pen tells a pain that I can’t keep within. Projecting a truth upon toxic shores where in my tide I rise yet once more. Better I be bound than cry a sound with ink to…

What Flows Below

Pour from head to toe go below thoughts to tell what heart grows. Here my world your power sews sacred a thread; halo’s crescendo. Yet a dark holds caustic thunder. Tell me dear of power I’m under. Tip your head I see spilt heart a twisted thing it spilled forth say. Tell truth though burn…

Serving The Serpent

Spawned in the dawn a servant for to supply purpose so certain but under the tree did lie. Damned upon the land one look will give away what we are in a heart no mask hides its sway. Prey does the serpent in an act of no remorse for those it dines from; need it…

The Ocean’s Forever There

See the blue of sky
merge with blue sea.
Such sight it will be
there long after me.

Should I go prosper,
in a hell of life’s spell,
even then will there
be a beauty to dwell.

Fruit Of My Father

The enveloping swell, the rapture encompass, I feel such but inside me I turn I do confront this. *** All my passions turn cold and I think of children of mothers and fathers who raised women with love. *** All beauty captivates my eyes see curves and hair; soft skin, petite faces, eyes I look…

Little Things

Years have scarred and I’m torn by time. The little things I do now hold close mine. As I have traveled it, highway at full speed, my want did eclipse what I really did need. Something for all of the nights to usher in another day I find joy for tomorrow to begin. That which…

Siren

You conjure to exercise your illuminating ways. What you said was clear but hindsight is in a haze. *** You’re excited to please eyes that look at you; but any that do pursue you alter and confuse. *** Moving on some stage, where you spin a trance, do you remember what we shared in a…

Demeanor

I thought of summers long ago into the past; as I did I felt a gloom wash over me so fast. My head down I see others who like me I have my head where I don’t look at my sky. Pounding goes a tune inside the part of me I’ve gloom in a room…

Salting The Earth

A bird sat on my shoulder to sing a song; none bolder. I listened to tales of where flew sparrows; flying on air. Pass by I’m not quite innocent; I reach deep for some semblance. Walls ten feet I look to scale. Uncouth ways of mine do fail. I’ll shout for it to declare mine;…

Worlds I Create

I’ve been someplace none have ever been. I travel there often in neurons it does begin. My imagination lives and breathes escape from this tired world new ones I do create. There I find softness I fear here I’ve lost; as the years pass by consume does frost. Cold to the core it is, scarred…

Torn Apart

Made in his image, torn by own. Made to pay in pain for a happy home. Struggle is the norm, fight a fire. Passing people treat you as a liar. Guess they never met, a soul mine, does not give a damn what they find. I’ve my own battles I am ripped it seems I’ve…

As The Earth Cries

Untended to ivy it’s grew you to a new point of view. Has the heat struck you it is fierce feel it as you sit. Just forget it, you’ll ignore the earth cry behind doors. Came we on a place used for freedom we do abuse. Free we pen in hand grow what in dark…

Stolen Eyes

As I was wandering along my same old road my eye saw your casual stroll. Exchange a word can I with you Miss? While I try figure how it came to this. Cast aside caution I throw now breaks along this path it must be a mistake. Up and down I’ve sworn oath, solitude; it…

Under Repair

Construct we must at times us superior, while choices capably chosen show inferior. Grandiose fashion kin but unconfident within; see me seek deep now of what in me is a sin. It the all seeing sky it peeks around cloud I in my solace take time to see choices of mine. Imperfectly manifest I an…

Lessons In The Movie “Glory” We’ve Forgotten

I thought I might do something a little new that deviates from my normal writing habits. I thought I might offer a personal review of a movie I hold dear in my heart. On February 16, 1990 a movie was released in theaters nation-wide called, “Glory.” I am sure many of you know of this…

Pain You Don’t Own

I am not afraid, I see different I beg light insight for my own fight. Twist it I will to forms just make my own form for my soul’s at stake. Who inspires me I will never move, even those whom of you dissaprove. Those with scars, those who do hurt in tears pain they…

Battles I Must Fight Alone

Limp in my limbs, I torn once again, in life’s cove swim, I’ve a soul to hem. Evident is my pain so I revel my brain consumes I remain a shade of the sane. Truth is I’m at odds, pleasure is my God. All else to me fraud; I find hard applaud. Come close I…

No Stopping Night

The shore is tumult where I rest a head formed in the tide’s sinews life has lead. Dark lasts so long it consumes most days. No children frolick on shores smile play. It is the way of most realities we do face that we do what we must face our place. Where cold rolls in…

I’ll Meet You There

Something wicked this way it comes; the night it cracks hear beat a drumb. The fell branches that have fallen fast. Wafted bent back has dry green grass. The world moves so in such ways it stays til both you and me we find our graves. I am mesmerized it comfort I have found. That…

What The Hell Am I Doing

I’ve a confession I am a contorter of the light. I manifest colors for my mind to take flight. What will I illuminate in my inclination’s wry sense of humor morbid perspective in my eyes? I shutter to not give in to the bitter aspect for a better part of myself; paths for to me…

Rebel Hurricane

I chew on steel I spit out nails. I spit out fire I walk by myself. I speak in rhyme in what I write. So that ears will feel some delight. For the course I walk same as you scalds the skin I’m branded no shoes. Glass on ground my feet pass over. I reach…

The Shroud

My dear friend do speak as if I’m a child. For truth evades me; and is measured miles. I am dead to truth. Mystified I perplexed my family and still I find I’m still wrecked. Was I tame before the shroud fell away? From my face lace gently singed it stays. Beneath is horror unwanted,…

The Importance Of Diversity

It is sad but the truth is that here now today we do not respect one another as we should. The rancor of hate has no better example than what took place in New Zealand this week. In case you haven’t heard, over 49 lives were taken by a madman with a gun. I know…

Aged Wine

I like wine with age that is robustly thick. I like dulled nerves; pain flys away quick. The joy of life is rife, teaches I’m just a beast. It makes me a pupil to see what I must defeat. Joy can be primative with all it’s charm full. I like to think lechery and can…

They Call You Ambition

My Letter To The Devil I’m more than just a little curious you restore calm amongst the furious. *** It is like your hands wave a wand. One minute there it is then is gone. *** You are no Christ born carpenter you want aggrandizement when through. *** A heaven’s hell is stoked by treason;…
