Dating Sucks.

Dating can suck. I suppose for some of us more than others... I've never really been into dating. When I hit my teenage years and moved states, I became a recluse, rarely bothering with relationships of any sort. They faded at an increasingly rapid pace as I got older, and eventually, not having a girlfriend… Continue reading Dating Sucks.

“She’s getting too close.”

Those words hold such a familiar sound as they echo through my life. I didn't realize my tongue had become so familiar with such a heartbreaking sentence. But as they yet again fell from my lips like 100 pound weights, I realized I may have a problem. I have a friend. He's been a friend… Continue reading “She’s getting too close.”

Poem: My Garden of Eden

Within my heart a garden of Eden A garden of the gods A garden so ripe succulent with life Within the suns light blossoms bloomed bright At least once upon a time Then stems withered in storm winds Leaves shriveled and fell from trees Roots cracked as the earth shook And skies turned black No… Continue reading Poem: My Garden of Eden

Poem: Please, Stop Loving Me

I don’t deserve your heart so please stop giving it to me Wrapped up so neat with a stunning red bow on top I’m an addict a thief I’m a murderer who watches the world bleed without a wonder I’m a black sheep In a portrait-perfect family I’m the air over a funeral I’m the… Continue reading Poem: Please, Stop Loving Me

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

Poetry: Starving after a Feast

"Here," they shout. "Feast." All of this can be yours A task beyond ease And, of course for a fee The Kings and High Queens behind the table to the peasants on bleeding knees “Reach if you are able” And of course, without thought they fight tooth and nail toward the table, they claw But… Continue reading Poetry: Starving after a Feast

Poem: In Love with Love

I just remember the way it'd sound so fake every time you'd call me Babe Everyday when I'd awake Even when you'd say hey Especially when you'd say my name The way we might feel miles away every time we hugged even though we were always together oh so so close You wanted me to… Continue reading Poem: In Love with Love

Poem: Blackout

The anger still lingers The face in the mirror Distorted by the danger Looks only like a stranger So I took a marker and colored the mirror black We used to be so so close you used to be a place I called home but now that home has grown so cold and empty, like… Continue reading Poem: Blackout

Poem: The Heartbeat of Years

The clock ticks away years like the beat of my heart You’re still in my tears I wear your name like a scar Wishing you were here as I look upon a million stars I awake into a nightmare everyday I’m not in your arms We’re all home now but you are nowhere to be… Continue reading Poem: The Heartbeat of Years

I think I just moved back to TN

It’s amazing how quickly your whole life can change, isn’t it? One minute you have a perfect idea of how everything is going to play out... the next, something as gentle as a breeze comes along and changes the direction of everything. So, the family reunion that brought me to Knoxville went well. Really well.… Continue reading I think I just moved back to TN
