Sure Is Purdy Round Here

The East Tennessee Valley got three inches of snow. It’s impossible to hardly walk on but it sure was beautiful. Just wanted to share something beautiful in this crazy world.

My Love My God

I derive my wordsinspired by an image.A picture I affixedattop a page a vissage. I shall remove it whenI share this later love.Carry the words over Ia trove carry my drug. Dueling winds cold tryand sway my adulation.But warmth it stirs deepfrom my infatuation. I’m trying to capturethese moments I live wild.I set them at…

On This Lovely Day

I thought I’d share my walk with you today to the library down the way here in good ole East Tennessee. It was a lovely day and I had some research I was doing because hey, that’s what journalists do. Down the road is a cemetery I have to walk past to get to the…

All Things End

It is a simple thing in life to make changes sometimes and sometimes it is not. I took this picture today of my father’s first set of cabinets his father made for him and his brother. Back in the 60’s it was all such a simpler time. Drawers like these were a luxury. And for…

The Superior Sex

Existed we did in Eden, gardens they did bring, with a glow that controls, what all hearts still sing. In a moment outside time we once were deceived by a serpent who existed in a god’s created leaves. Destined to die we both are but still some see you as less. But to bring into…

Unending Gratitude For You

A vacuum in time sends me into a sweat cold as I dream. The past it swallows all of me; all I can do is at sky scream. As my eyes close and I pull the sheets above my head I see in my mind the things from the day that I dread. The sky…

So My Heart I’ll Guard

I could have been, I say over and over. I want to cleanse a new life while sober. All I can think in the mirror blink I in darkness sink, a weak link. I have some idea of the war raging outside my door so me I am caving. I pray to the blue because…

Fill that hole fallnot anymore love.Your savior…

Assuaged

For years a fear had me close eyes. The logic explored it has two sides. Emotion, heart, lip I’ve been equipped to slip a shiv quip, to allow me the slip. I get it it’s fine I’m awkwardly designed. Fight claw you will find a fleeing mind. Slow to understand I’m a complex man. Fear…

Random Shit At Midnight

I remember when I was in my accident years ago the shock of it all never really set in. Now the fear of putting myself in a position where I must conquer obvious fears while at the same time progressing where I need to be in my life is daunting. I don’t need these stressors…

Just A Thought

This place steer me into the open breeze. Smoke myself into avenue obscure then fall too. Make a ground where I have lost I’ve found. Here brambles crack; worms crawl in soul, black. Shelves, books you’ve read; feed me, dear before I dead. Take it, a hand. Give a place I stand.

Redefined

Cripple call me or maybe wicked; I’ve burdens me I am conflicted. I guess that such makes me so true that I can call me just same as you. Liquor familiar I am with a buzz. That allows my hurt not think of. My crutch I lean on for I cowardly write of a bliss…

For The Fading Light

The sun’s fading into far beyond; dance to its song, push onward on. For the tide feel it wash over feet where you and a new day do meet. A night is over a shore all yours it glimmers gold a serenity feel kiss. Where there has been storm wild goes with a time, it…

I try my best to focus on what I must do to maintain who I am as a person. Identity and knowing ones self through introspection and meditation is a philosophy I practice. I try my best to love myself for what I am. I try and fix areas of my life I am unhappy…

A Pain To Suffer

What is this rubble here? Ask me see I shed no tear. *** Hide I’ll not a heart’s rage. I do it so to remain sane. *** I’m mortal I feel pierce a spear of fear, red eye pain. *** It is a whip a lash to a face that a heat it my eyes…

Your Job

A christ crucify where you dance I see the burden but also a trance. What dimension have we do now? I’ll be the pillar built up to cloud. In there an angel upon white steed came to save us for life is a greed. Judge your eyes readjust to time when we saw it but…

I Numbness Provide

Amidst the wolves as the Bible it said I see the devil prey up inside my head. My laugh it’s seen in my fiery smiles; I feed the beast for life can be an exile. I have been down many roads I bled. How I it overcame it escapes my head. Our reality presents things…

Salvo Of Ink

A salvo explodes modes we are in. I concede a devil, found me again. I’ll supply banter to be turned page by your hand I’m in a world of rage. I’ve got opened a wound of a past. Drowned whisky finds a mind fast. I don’t know what to do with all the pain falling…
