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…

Reptilian

A World Unto Ourselves

The idea of note-taking and whisps of some fluttery endorphin inducing charm is not a quest. It is a journey. I began at age 10 writing nonsense over and over again in scribbles and single words that fascinated me. There’s a movie called “Donny Darko” I saw years back that left me with a real…

Serving The Serpent

My method madness, I turn to burning sun that penetrates a skin mine I wear for some. *** I want to be a sight in eyes that scan through a pleasing gaze to see that what does amuse. *** A version of me change I do so you can approve of my interjection into your…

Your Pious Priest

Don’t say you love everyone. Such poison on your sly tounge. What do think of me I see you the type person inside not truth. You came to me in a depression. A pious priest for your confession. You can’t hide it, for I’ve seen hell. Parlayed devils; I inside sin dwell. Be imperfect it…

Secrets You Keep

I can not begin pry, in your well hid eye, that lays deep inside comfort from a lie. You’ve begun I stay to ponder your way. Games you will play, hiding inner shame. What would be bad, if truth you did have, sprung forth so glad if such you had had? No wisdom for now…

Truth’s Soldier

Art Of Destruction

No need for alarm my truth’s volatile bomb mangled facade gone; bid it adieu urge along. Search in an essence, which is ever present, I harbor not pleasant truths of me I resent. Check off my routines, one by one define me. Beyond what is seen, I wasn’t what I seemed. Some things I destroy…

What The Hell Am I Doing

The Importance Of Diversity

It is sad but the truth is that here now today we do not respect one another as we should. The rancor of hate has no better example than what took place in New Zealand this week. In case you haven’t heard, over 49 lives were taken by a madman with a gun. I know…

25 Years Ago My Best Friend Wrote This…

Often times one looks back on the way they once were. This was written by my best friend in Middle School which for me was 25 years ago. The truth here can hardly be denied. I feel there is some resonance here and is in itself quite witty for an 8th grader to write. That…

The Bullshit

Seemingly cliche is a lifeless exterior form that deviates the ways of what is the known. I’ll be there between the picture painted I am complex in a hole where forms often lie. I look up at the fan I am as if a phoenix burn this cycle of rhetoric because I came to learn.

Truth Be Told…

True to the tune that flows from freeing feelings that I feel let commence healing. I delve to the depths that never reach surface; where eyes can see for those who hurt us. I feel the ever fleeting air leave as I begin rise. Panic pillages my lungs when I find I don’t hide. So…

An Honest Note

I’m a friend of the dark where in night I embark. All that is left now is part of a dark macabre heart. I’ll travel twisting roads even if danger I suppose does travel as I now go from the shadow exposed. I enjoy the same things I manage to make scenes in my mind…

A Real Dimension

What pictures have you painted pretty where opposite’s true because truth is shitty? What you do and reveal to others I don’t know. I just see you for what to me that you do show. I’m such a microcosm, some larger part made, from pieces not perfect no shock I don’t behave. Your a proud…

What’s Normal?

For some the word, “normal” is used to describe the things they understand. For me it’s normal to not understand a damn thing.

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…

Whispers Of Vipers

I ask her how many faces she has in her bag. She roughly emotes introspective thoughts had. I can not recall a moment before now thinking so clear but I remember how. Everything changes as do whispers ear to ear. Truth is revealed only to turn and disappear. Care should I what human err reflections…

C.M.

This world gets tired again, my soul it does seek asylum. My mind it starves for her eyes and seeks to define them. Quite the journey it has been watching her walk in and out of my presence now and again all the while my heart is devout. I’ve written song after song since first…

Where Time Is Never Returned

I have been there. Aghast with shock and horror. In cages I’ve found myself. The floor I laid there many morrows. Pits of despair where men would seemingly bury each other. For amenities that would fancy even kin who disavow their brothers. For cages of steel and iron change the perception of the mind. Linger…
