O Thou Lone Star
O thou lone star,My only glimmer of faint hope,In the menacing darkness of this undying night,I cling onto you fast, for losing you, I wouldn't find myself. Guide me,Through these endless oceans,Waters rolling over, from all sides,When I've lost all my heart to stay afloat. Lead me,When the fleeting illusions,In these dull, dead, dreary deserts,Compel...

Taking a puff or two of his fancy cigar, he said, “Well kid, when you see death, just tell him, I ain’t ready you skeletal piece of shit! And if I see you again, I’m gonna stick my foot up your ass!” Feeling a little out of place, I drew all my courage to ask... Continue Reading →

Back into the old familiar vennel,Yet the heart thumps hard within,Quick shivers conduct through,With each step, as the door nears,My dreaded soul, quick at it's heels,To run miles away, the other end,In dire straits, becoming onerous,To put myself together, to face her,Back home, here, after several years,Will she welcome me with open arms,Or doors remain...

Pulling through the multitudeI did make it!

Inside the box
After putting on my best thinking cap and working my brain all around the clock, I did painfully realize that my thoughts were like two drops of water in the dead dreary desert mind of mine. Before I could capture them they would just evaporate in thin air, leaving me with absolutely nothing to write... Continue Reading →
A sense of hope

Fighting flames of fire Hang onto burning wires We don't care anymore Are we fading lovers? We keep wasting colors Maybe we should let this go.......... ..........Never face each other One bed, different covers We don't care anymore Two hearts still beating On with different rhythms Maybe we should let this go ∼All we know...

Here I've penned the thoughts tossing in my head: 'Tis time to wipe my slate clean, And start afresh again, 'Tis time to bury the dead past, Which like the argosies fiercely tossed, On the dreadful ocean, fast. 'Tis time to wipe my slate clean, And start afresh again, 'Tis time to adorn the present,... Continue Reading →
