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…

Deep Down

We dug we delved downto the core no more hidedid we future’s hope butsoon black it was a divide. Run or slow down eitherwas an option for us tocling to things that stingit brings a hurt I renew. Lies don’t know you well,so let me breathe a truthamongst lies I am ungluedand fall apart now…

Self Served Love

All of my machinationsspawn fruitless vines.Twisted notion posion isrevealed in inner mind. In dark of night whichway do I direct a vice?What pacifies once Imight not survive twice. Hide all that is vile childin your facade I see bleedout of your spirit an ilkthat of some toxic seed.  Fill the hole inside you,feed that chasm…

I Can’t Fly With You

The time goes slowwhen you’re in mind.The world fades as Itry make it sublime.   Never has all an airbeen so stagnant oldin the cracks of skin inmy hands as they fold. My palm finds a sideof my head as I in aweturn it to the side nowas I see all of my flaws. I travel…

Years We’ll Think Of

The sun rose today,you were not here.Such a beloved lady had left this sphere. Where you travel Iam destined as well.You hurt no longerwith no pain to tell.  I am vexed in hazethat has left amazedmy discomfort nowmy saddness stays. Yet I will rejoice ina lament as you riseshedding grave’s caveto follow all of light….

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…

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…

Seraphim Of Moon

Planets have collided and born in my night’s sky an image light on my soul grows comfort inside and it is comforting inner fights. Seraphim I lay low my anger of my twisted aspects of life now. For the sun that was blotted hid inner light but it is now abound. I was sleeping in…

Fatigued

Straying from all that shelters, falling down below the brink of sanity I am becoming all that is turning I’m becoming extinct. The world has changed and air is thinner by the every hour. Reduced I am to fatigue my loss has ripped soil of rose flowers. Beauty has become foreign I’ll walk on floors…

Against The Grain

I wrote the words,pain pushed the keys.In my mind a shadowmacabre called me forth. The liquor, once years Itasted long ago found myvicious distaste of allmy weaknesses soft spot. I’ve asked all that istender into my realmbut still the rum spoke:“Hide pain of your regrets.” “You are a soldier of mine,”so said the bottle.As hurt…

Thank You

This is for you all. I crave no attention and I carry heavy burdens. I am messed up guys. After a really bad wreck years ago I went through bouts of depression, alcoholism and suicide ideation. I crave no sympathy. I’m just thankful for the friends I’ve made here. You guys are more precious to…

Child Of Fire

I function as I please.I get gnashing teethwhen told what to do;I do what pacifies me. Travels I have madeto the edge of sanity.So I have to breatheand let my heart free. Conflicted my home,growing up inside,taught me what to be;taught what to hide. All judge all rememberpieces of memory thatgrasp us by the neck…

Angel

Your my worldall is unfurledand my wordsdaft make cold. I was and amunmotivated.Try move me,you do I cry. Not a mile noran inch have Imoved in here,and I’m splendid.

Together

Maybe I went too fardown a tunnel we arecomplete complexitybut not too bizarre. I am a fixture a focusa vague but decisiveeye for things don’t bevocal to be divisive. See the changes thatI can make but choosewho I am who youcan also be part too. Come with me now Iwant the things we allwant the…

Unto The Uncouth

It seems a softsound found me.It seems I releaseall my soft things. I do not want it,dulcet tender sort.I breathe now afirey blazing retort. I seek truth in ahand I carry close.No one ever seesits lethal little dose. Ask me and I’llshy away from you.Ask me and I’lldance it in a tune. The truth it…

From Within

Deep in my soulin shallow brooksI feel chill on feet,in the dark I look. Black is my heartfor the night is too.Truth is I know notwhat I can try do. I call to all the godsthat man has made.The dark consumesso upon you I gaze. The animal insideit has no remorse.My logical mind Iapply then…

The Cove

I see me now and I shake.I see me now and I awake. The sun has touched meand I am a broken tree. The color is opaque trustI’m going to do what must. My roots run deep down,under a tree’s I am found. I put off the things I’ve oftenused to before I find a…

One Last Tear

I’ve live beauty every day when the thoughts of you do begin. Really it’s like the same for all. Let’s not let our decency ever fall. When I’m gone and the earth splits open I’ll always remember a kiss. You follow me back to a youth one with which I was so uncouth. I do…

Once Again

Oft I cry treason, in a realm reason is a hurt we’re ill in every season. Oh the look I see every day a path my memory hold I do mental math. Is it this function, a logic I can’t see? Let us begin run in sun to dive in sea. But for to prosper…

A Dose Of The Real

It is completely silent here. As I rest my mind is wandering aimlessly. I’m trying my best to describe a moment I had in my life with someone whom I almost married. But hurt resides in the memory of her. To think ill of her would be like me saying my love for her I…
