Poem: I used to be a little boy.

Days they change to months that'll never stay Like dandelions in the wind the past just blows away Scattered All the colors of yesterday today have faded to grey I remember that place called home on the front porch I used to play There used to be such a magic to my life Like holidays… Continue reading Poem: I used to be a little boy.

Poem: It’s Fall

Beneath a canopy of overhanging trees leaves fall like rain They get caught in the subtle breeze and they swirl and they sway As they fall to their death I hear the wind before it hits A gentle roar through every branch that makes the leaves clatter and dance Then that wind washes over my… Continue reading Poem: It’s Fall

Poem: I Killed Her

So sweet she was sweet we were before and after her sweet sweet murder To me she seemed to be a rare breed a gift I couldn’t keep A tune I couldn’t sing A mystery meant to remain in pieces She was a dream then the harsh smack of reality But she always Always made… Continue reading Poem: I Killed Her

Poem: Born Dead

April 25th 1994 Clouds split and Heavens roared The world received a gift as the full moon poured Something beautiful and wicked to be remembered forevermore Upon my birth the dirt of this Earth was forever cursed I came into this place about a week late Wherever I was they told me that I'd overstayed… Continue reading Poem: Born Dead

Poem: Hiding in Plain Sight

I hide in plain sight Pitch black empty eyes shielded "Bye" a smiling mask My disguise My fake laugh I'm not quite who I am It's where I go to act like I haven't cried and behind my back isn't a knife covered in fresh blood coz I'm a nice guy in your friendly neighborhood… Continue reading Poem: Hiding in Plain Sight

Depression and Addiction

I'm not saying these two (depression and addiction) go together--but there does seem to be a painfully in-your-face relation between the two in my life. So, I've been blogging for over a year now. A year and a half? Over 200 posts, and in each, I've been incredibly open--bringing to light sensitive and personal matters… Continue reading Depression and Addiction

Poem: Lullabies at Grandma’s

For me there is nothing quite like night When the black sky is open wide and the glowing moon lends just the right amount of light I stare up An out of this world sight Memories oh memories They flood my mind As a kid back at Grandma's in her lap I'd sit as she… Continue reading Poem: Lullabies at Grandma’s

Poem: How to Fly

This place, this place This place of pain This place where you must lose to gain In order to love you must first hate If you want to rise you must first fall If you want to be great you have to start small If you want to laugh you must let yourself cry Aching… Continue reading Poem: How to Fly
