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

Poem: Please, Stop Loving Me

Poem: When the Storm Knocked

I heard the rumble I heard the grumble and growl descending quick from dissatisfied clouds Like a thousand feet The march of an army rolling over the hills like a warning Then the sky flipped from day to night like God hit the switch and turned out the lights The soft pitter patter upon the… Continue reading Poem: When the Storm Knocked

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
