Stars From Afar

Wonderous maze of starshow I’ve seen you before.Still not the same alwaysyou astound once more. Passed all the complexityit is all so simple now here.This life allows scenes totake us beyond this sphere. This ground I’m on I confessfrom what I expect be thereup beyond into a sky highalters everytime at it I stare. Function…

Volatile Sanctum

Thoughts of violencean ember glows redinside spirit hate I’vespoken while I bled. Does a coffin of cedarhold what we held sotightly I feel so mightythough all I don’t know. Misplaced people theythat kindle in a bosoma knowledge a refuge Ihope none abuse them. Children cry enough asingle tear is too much.For to protect them wea…

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…

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…

Tender

From the boughbroken not soft.Crucify a Christ,the one you lost. Saved you are not,you don’t want it.Tender whispersyou desire my lips. Vacant is your soul,fill in the carnal.It is far too strong,skin covered caramel. Life runs to the endand on ground tackspierce flesh of feetonce soft now black. Fill that hole fallnot anymore love.Your savior…

Spooky Asssociations

Forces of evil ask meto dance in evil ways.I complacent said soI did my ancient thing. I cry to give mercy Ihave a step in the door.My memory will cry;it’s an ancient thing. I let wolves tear me,I let vicious wives tellof a hell about me andbehind backs I care not. Darkness is a way…

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…

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…

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.

Dark Of Broken Art

Assemble planets, contort a universe; arrange a night sky mixed and diverse. Cursed our lands in bloodied hands I try to withstand my life’s demands. So place me orbit does my love us we’ve been steered, a cursed compass. Take me away far place me in a jar from broken parts then paint a dark….

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…

Spaces I Trace

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…

Destruction Of Function

A turn of the hand, you do so elegantly. Your power a might you do it effectively. May your breath it cause chaos in sky. In your wake know I have not dry eyes. I stare the horizon I am in awe hypnotic that all of you gone has my mind caustic. Shall I exude…

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…

Wrong All Along

What would you say if set in motion we felt no regret? *** No what was, or what could have been in our lives good. *** Are you happy not a mistake made swayed how to behave? *** Pride stubborn you’ll not cover; the past you’d have no other. *** Me I bleed in a…

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…

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…
