Take more for myself Who watches out for me Worrying about no one else What’s mine matters More than yours I care less for others  The more I see how they care for me I tell myself this Don’t admit that I’m scared to let anyone in I will keep them over there I will […]

An Afterthought

I use to write a lot Pages of ideas Now I think too much What great pain to stop writing Miss the tangible Deciphering my chicken scratch An Old soul Trapped in what looks like a younger man But merely looks Definitely doesn’t feel that way Always at odds with myself Some things too crazy to […]

Think One

Blast your music As loud as you want Eyes on the road Voice to the sky I don’t care Just drive One destination  One thing at a time No more juggling  Let computers do the multitask While I do this Let the music play And drive  Eyes on the road Just one thing at a […]

Familiar Smile

That look you give Your eyes focused on me A grin on the brink of a smile Cheeks growing with blush A slight head tilt As your smile breaks You feel it and turn to hide your face Then suddenly you pull the hair covering your face Put it behind your ear A brief look […]


Lost in questions Lead by rage Fueled by anger Where am I in all of this Poisoning myself with everyone’s views Tasting everyone’s hate It drains me to live fueled by destruction Words clogged in my mind Streets stained with blood Cruses coming from both sides Who’s right, who’s wrong When will we have a […]

Don’t know about this news Figured it would never come You weren’t someone I worried about Took your punches and kept moving Didn’t complain in the moment Only while drinking Life was life, what can you do We be your famous last words Just the way you were with me You genuinely were happy to […]

This Race

Break fast and run hard Keep pace Don’t slow down Life is gaining Feel it getting closer Don’t look back Footsteps echo louder If it passes you Run it down Don’t stop Legs will hurt Chest will burn Sides will feel like punches This race Life Wasn’t meant to be painless It’s a test Don’t […]

A Balance

Easy to forget That we need someone Another to be there Either human or pet Bringing a balance Keeping us loved We are not built for loneliness Solitude is not the same In our darkness It’s that other that brings us to the light We make more together Alone we think too much Find your […]

Searching For My Voices

Words are incoherent Clouded at times Just an array of noises No clear thought Searching in the darkness Afraid of what I might find Words that elude me Yearning to say so much No clue what to say first Thoughts bombarded Curled in a corner too much noise to take Needing help A direction from […]
