Our Relations

My vision is askew, my mind is stained from physical hurt deep inside a brain. A basket case I am I try and be strong for the trip I make everyday is so long. I see you all and I reach down below where nurture me your words grow. Thank you all for all of…

Jubilant Beams Of Light

There’s space reserved today, this place where I misbehave. Could be a tiger in a cage. I can ramble as much as rave. My stare is a moment I say what the hell brought you this way? The wind is too unfamiliar and people here don’t fit your gaze. You see here I put up…

Don’t Let Anyone Be The Master Of You

I want to take a moment to discuss a very important issue with me. You can be a mentor and learn to speak to youth who may be struggling with this thing called life. Everyone matters on this earth and together we could all reach out to youth and explain that emotions, words…are real. Find…

Revealed

I am a vision of steam in some vacuum seen as a westerly stream. It’s a scene so serine. Of an encampment born of souls who do mourn. A little space now torn for your grace you adorn. All eyes will hypnotize you into a sea of lies. Lest Lucifer connived and your soul set…

C.M. : The Last Time Our Eyes Met

I wasn’t wanting to say things to taint the moment. The mood was calm and I froze with a look stolen. The appreciation of words that rarely I ever do hear, rolled so effortlessly down your lips and found my ear. I never have known a calm that consumed me as you did extending out…

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….

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…

Avenues Of Respite

So cruel can be the revolving day. Creating questions; coldness on display. Answers elude, leave bitter tastes. Control is illusion; cursing is a waste. Wake everyday, well earned slumber. Seeing obstacles, conspiring thunder. We loose people, ones we love the most. While other burdens use us as their host. Agony ridden friends, let not the…

Beautiful Souls Do Beautiful Things

Those days. Those bitter days. Where I sweat and strived to a higher purpose. A cause beyond me. A place where blood and discomfort were alleviated by the power of passion. A passion to aid in a cause fighting for the innocent; the helpless. The world’s cruel aspect. The chilling scenes of abuse. How voices…

Not Born Alone

In the beginning so the story goes, was a great sin so burden arose. Wise are we now, we clothe ourselves. Aware are we, now here we do dwell. Allowed to us were minds to discover where the err slumbers; how to wake each other. So the story goes, inward we crave more. Fine tuned…

The Sound Of Time

Father Time reaches with his tightfist grip. Grabbing masses whole singing along his trip. His voice revealed are simple sounds. Birds singing softly flying amongst clouds. The circle, the cycle around and around we go. Some are luckily released, from vices as their thrones. I try and I’ll call loud out into the vast crowd….

ESSENTIAL, My Thank You To You

I can’t seem to get out of my way. I rely on a supply of strength for today. It comes to pass my insecurity bleeds. I try to soocher but what made cuts sees. Losing faith I bind my operating hands. My feet don’t move as if stuck in quick sand. I can recall many…

Howling At The Moon

Have I died enough to stave off nights I’ve cried, you in my thoughts? I remember when you gazed at me and said that I am one; not just a talking head. I remember when nights, the thought of you. Thoughts of holding tight in nights I never slept through. Would I be one you’d…

Where The Heart Bleeds

I saw a man, bones shown through his skin. I said a prayer for the pain that never ends. The tears fall on cold cement streets. Those cold places where the heart bleeds. Dreams lay bear, they separate and cry for some reason why some dreams die. Eyes turn away what logic won’t face. This…

Writing Out Sorrow

When I was a child I could be enticed by the sway of every empty insecure vice. Cold side-streets that I’ve walked alone; found did I a vessel to call my home. Every room I ventured I heard voices emplore. Screaming and weeping behind heavy doors. Everywhere around where weeping dwelled, people did despair. So…

As If I Were Dreaming

The morning my mind when love I did find, is still frozen in time. Before then I was blind. I remember she was wild, spirited, sentimental guile. Far more familiar with life far more than I just a child. As I search my mind to describe her in kind, it seems all too clear it…

Taking The Baton

Fluid rhythm with flowing gentle tone. All of my faculties, fit you for a throne. You will find that I tried to set you free. I would shatter wind if you wished it to be. If any tune or tone is not what you can stand, I’d take up the podium, steady it with my…

Fly Free

What is perceived depends on the eyes. Motives from within differ from those outside. A soul can be known by their words you read. Beneath none is ever what you expect them to be. I stand in the town square grabbing the center pole. Being what I’ve come to be there is nothing else I…

Unveiling The Heart

For the eyes for the heart, behold the night the sun will part. Scan the horizon you can’t see without sunlight what light frees. Understand a voice in response to you. Apply the tenants of the good and true. Take a chance leave spite behind. Set free enmity expand your mind. Finish the drive set…

My Adventure: Chattanooga, Amos Lee & Death By Chocolate

Tivoli Theatre. Chattanooga, TN. Amos Lee is a singer/songwriter whom I’ve never heard of but I got a chance to see him tonight at this live venue with my mom and our family friends. We left Knoxville, TN at 1pm. We stopped at our lake house on the way. Somewhere that I’ve been many times…
