Altered States

My intoxicating fluid you hearken for now? An elixir forgot I’ll try resurrect your crown. Inside your belly I do awake feelings fought you have abandoned; I fill it with a thought. Try refine your palate, taste buds I try please, with a sophistication I make you feel a queen. Your envoy I will join,…

Seasoned Reason

My might it is not like you have got. Our forces fought in chaos so fraught. To try stand tall it is just me teeth grit, behind chapped lip, my words but quip. You were essential, I strike with pencil, if need erase insult, if rancor my result. Forgive me I’ll fight with all of…

Time’s Binding Travel

Molded in bodies of passion, brought crying in sinners’ hands, created we are fashioned in wombs under time’s demands. Self-restraint time does temper with vision, sound and taste. This world we are made enter, is at times a heartless place. Callus are the palms that set us in our mothers’ arms. Time has rend us…

I’ve Never Traveled Like This

I’ve traveled far beyond what most have seen on this earth we call host. Love do I this thing that I enjoy. Here in front of you I do rejoice. That you see me as I paint this realm. Upon the earth as if upon a ship’s helm. I steer in the water so many…

I Guess I’m Damned

Pride is spoken of in the Bible as a hindrance. There is an obvious conflict when one talks about pride. How can someone be both humble yet also confident without being prideful? There are times when I think of what I have power over and the reality is that I only have power over my…

Thrills Love Can Be

I want to try to bring others to intently sing this and that everything that passion careens. For the depths that rise passing from feet to eyes leave us wholly surprised; bringing to us love alive. Though love is but states of mind we tend to create when we drown self hate we need others…

At First Sight

There is such a thing as magic. Despite that life can be so tragic. You will know it when you have it, for your heart fills so fully ecstatic. Moments can and do tend happen; eyes meet and heal the saddened souls with inner tender laughing. Looks can heal if you grasp them. When you…

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….

Death Makes Us Kin

I’m far from being damn special. Yet the reaper finds I’m acceptable. Let coldness for it be reciprocal, it brings us all to be connectable. Berate fellow souls we should not for we can see our common spot. In large fields of tombstone lots we’ll be what the earth has forgot. The grave’s our common…

Untethered Hands

Maybe known is such, that I yearn so much for a sustaining crutch. A sentimental touch. I confess I was scared from not being prepared, nor being quite aware, that you sit right there. Reading a scattered mind, searching to try and find the larger scope of design from what I’ve left behind. As I…

My Bedside Table

Greetings my fellow bloggers. When I first started this site I didn’t expect the direction I was going would go anywhere. I took some classes in college pertaining to journalism and there was some part of me that wanted to stay true in that vein. Yet over time the words I wrote about current events…

Escaping In Ink

I realize not so easily is the trek to please me. My mind moves in speed. Doubt do I the need to see. A chance at gleeful bliss. Friction shook, mind’s amiss. So I float freely escape, seize chances to evaporate. Loose myself on the page; air comes in beneath shade. Down below when friction…

Step Into My World

I was raised in a strict fashion. Emotionless father, mother of passion. I was taught it’s a black and white world. Learned have I grey consumes as a hoard. It is not one way or the other. There are avenues of thought to uncover. I fell in love at the age of fourteen. It fell…

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…

Long Distance Love

I situated myself upon trembling ground. A place so hollow never before being found. A safe distance allows feelings free. Found did I exactly what I’d be. If I allowed such a thing begin, would I feel alive once again? A mysterious game never before played. I could not refuse. I’m a rebel that way….

The Vicious Animal Within

Exerting strength as each day passes by, leaves weary passengers flying miles. Enthralled passions come in many fashions. Everyone’s different requiring compassion. For hearts strive in differing ways to survive. To keep them well and to keep dreams alive. If we should seek out the corrosive strife forfeiting kindness causes a tenuous life. So delicate…

What Women Are

To carry life to feel birth’s pain, while men stand so completely vain. I try imagining my place, my worth. While women cry bringing life in birth. When I feel less like a man, tender compassion gives strength’s hand. So I see now the best part of me, moments shared in a woman’s beauty. Give…

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…

A Kin To Love Again

These pictures on the page they aren’t the same. Like when you say and speak my name. — The rapture is real it’s all I feel. Spread arms in a field suddenly life’s a big deal. — The feeling is kin to what I feel again. Under my skin you, my dearest friend. — Reminiscing…

One Of The Best Men I Know

As the world turns we find ourselves in the company of many different people. Everyone is unique and people have different ideas, experiences and personalities. My best friend is Anthony and I write this for him. He’s the ugly one on the right. Aside from his puppy dog face he is one of the most…
