My eyes cry Toward the sky Fleeing The everlasting feeling Of turning It off What seems so simple So direct Has blurred Past an invisible line As we approach The breaking point
Just past the hill Where the shadow falls The bed runs dry The grasses bend Under my cracked feet Landing on a cold Soft pillow Fresh My senses Awoken From their slumber I ingest everything Surrounding me Stopping And gulping A deep breath Starved For the energy Given to me In this Second Of awareness
Chomping and chomping Nothing else to do Sitting and waiting Scouring for something To ease the tension More and more Building Climbing Coming down For just a second To return higher Than I left Too much Filling And stuffing Blowing and blowing Until the bubble Just Pops
I stepped over the uprise Between the out and the in I came to a surrounding That hypnotized me I couldn’t catch my breath The sound was silence Stunned into oblivion It was everything I couldn’t imagine All my desires Of dreams Had come true I listened in the illusion I know it must be … Continue reading A Dreamlike Awake – March 14, 2020
Cracked and crazy The vibe I ride Juicy and dripping Rung dry and Swimming In its own puddle Locked and loaded Ready to spit Bringing the fire A vengeance Not needed In the least Except for The feeling It spared For Just One Second
Even when we feel alone, we are surrounded.
There are times I have no words To send drifting down this river. But instead I turn within, and Find myself ruminating In its understated beauty.
Will this be the same, when we wake up?
If I fall apart Will you hold me together... Take my hand And quench my thirst Your smell I’d follow Anywhere Wrapped around Protecting The sun will shine Roses will grow The sea waves Crash And pull Us out Into the rip tide You and I will Sit atop our world Laughing and crying Because … Continue reading If I Fall Apart – March 7, 2020
I heard a Killdeer this afternoon. I saw a lady bug crawling on my windshield. The breeze huffed through the trees, then died down, and again. I stopped and looked up at the lady bug, once. She was still. I think she was holding on. Of course, she was a she. Duh. And now she’s … Continue reading Talking to you…Killdeer 3/8/20
The way the world turns From left to right Front to back Up then down You trapped me here Following the rules It’s breaking my heart Coming out Cracked Just in time To realize The clock will Never Tick backwards
It’s hard to stay here For any length of time Giving chunks Asking nothing in return The price of silence Hits me Where it really counts
I have so many pieces of her stuck to my soul I can’t bare to think of what’s missing They play in my mind Like an old reel of film Round and around Clicking at a pace Nostalgic to my mind As the end approaches Sharply slapping my cheek
I live here Because this is where she is The upside down The land that exists Incoherently From the rest I’ve grown to find safety In my solace Lean in against myself The birds still chirp Only I can hear the sad song they sing Filling my head With ideas So many ideas That will … Continue reading The Birds Still Sing – February 25, 2020
Frosted moon Glowing Behind the branches Drawing my eyes up Somewhere past the skies Oh little prince Keep us young You and I Outside In the circle The world passing us by The feelings I remember Easy and whole The mark left A constant reminder Of who I was And who I’ve become Oh moonshine, … Continue reading Frosted Moon – February 10, 2020
You know what, you’re right Life isn’t a god damn fairytale And it’s far too short to Not feel enough You knew I required more when you met me I, in no way, hid that from you If you can’t keep up with me, That will always be on you
PARTS AND PIECES Bosom My mom used to call her breasts, bosoms. So of course, I’ve been told I would toddle around the house calling out Buzi buzi buzi buzi When I was hungry. Not sure if this is something I recollect, Or just a memory placed. I’ve always thought it was a funny word. … Continue reading Talking to you…2/29/20
Are some things just unforgivable? Devastatingly irrevocable In the end inconceivable What’s done is done I think so...
Gather your thoughts And tuck in your pride Because Death Will take you On the absolute Wildest ride
I am so sorry I didn’t hug you last night I wanted to let you know I heard you through the look in your eyes Frozen Masked in disguise I can’t, I just can’t It’s a feeling I lack Taken away Through the years Let down after let down
