I remember nights that seemed only for me. Everything still, silent…time fixed. I sat by shore, lost in its wake. Watched as mossy moorings danced in captivate. The moonlight stretched my little port, reaching for tomorrow, maybe running from yesterday. A lull of loneliness, like a blanket. Protects me from exposure. Suspended in salty bliss, […]
Wintery winds howl, calling a bluff. The sky’s story turns dark, when only halfway. Each of my breaths, more and more breath. They followed in dance, but leave me too. To chase drifts that whistle, and those raw gales… God, to the bone. The forest taunts, I hear the scratching. Slowing motion, I’m straight into […]
Your smile must have been a mask, that allowed you to deceive the unsuspecting. As the cold steel cuts through my flesh, I wonder if it was I, who handed you the sword? So, stand there as I bleed, and shame my imperfections. Turn your back and fix your mask, as my soul becomes untethered. […]
Wonderwall plays the lazy afternoon. Rack em’ before the crowd shows. I can smell the night before from the Ashtrays. Stained carpets, humming I got used to. Friend by hello, fist by good-bye. I know, you’re right. This now, the last. You are my best friend. So, same time tomorrow.

My memory is all I have to adore you. A broken heart still bleeding for attention. Before the picture fades, I pray for a lost connection. My fault bears a cross, though, it was never my intention. Forgive this, my wordy plea, and grant me redemption.
Why can’t I smile and mean it anymore? Is it because of my friend, dear Misery? But, I’ve known her now, more than anyone of flesh. She whispers constantly in my ear. Of a promise…that if I go with her. She’ll take my spirit and scatter it amongst the stars, so I may no longer […]
Eight tracks and underage, hard rock for the teenage, one summer eve, surrounded by kings. They rolled their tokes, shared loose smokes, and bragged, of sweetheart flings. I watched all night, as they pal and fight. Curse, and say foolish things. Like “Play it again.” said my uncle to a friend, as we sat, listening, […]
Just because, I take a breath, leaf-peeping through autumn hues. Chilled zephyrs race tears down a single cheek, that dewy brisk, restorative. I wander along the many tints and tones, embracing change that’s before me. Just a little further… and I’ll catch the harvest moon winking.
