Imitating Art

Tables turned In prison four walls contain you Now four walls save you Irony and life at play Turning normal days In Twilight Zone days Not even Black Mirror could’ve seen this Life never seizes to amaze What’s next Jurassic Park will happen The Walking Dead will be a thing Shit maybe it’s all part […]

Crashing Awake

The teapot screams Pull it off the heat Day starts My eyes still want to sleep I slouch against the counter It props me up Make my tea Drop it on the table A splash makes it out Look in the fridge Chinese leftover The best Heat it up Microwave or stove The microwave it […]

Good Company

I drink alone Don’t bother with the rest People regurgitating what they hear The appearance of intelligence Everyone wants to be your friend With a drink in your hand A foggy conversation of bullshit The misinformed informing the misinformed Fake laughs and smiles Slighted egos trying to impress Alone at the end of the bar […]

Come In

Open the windows Crack open the doors If I can’t go outside I will let the outside come in A breeze flashes through Breathing new life The sound of cars Almost none existent I hear birds instead I feel the sunlight Pull my chair closer to the window Lean back and close my eyes I […]

Open Your Hand

I figured I’d write this Before I didn’t have time Or forgot what I wanted to say Don’t hold the hate for to long Learn to let go It will stain your hand And poison your thoughts Like a bad bruise It will grow Consuming more of you Slowing covering you in itself Soon you […]

Clarity

On top of this mountain Alone from the world I breathe deeply Yell freely Curse those who’ve caused this Whether they are God or man Better alone and safe Then alone and dying The birds are free Man is trapped A fitting punishment A virus to wipe out the disease Day #331 SJD © 2020 […]

Last Light

Before the sun sets I stare at the sky Watching its final burn The darkness taking it’s place The cold can be felt on my breath This night is different No stars in the sky No moon to shine Can’t hear the birds They have stopped talking The wind has died down I will go […]

Need People

We live to touch To feel Perceive emotions Intimate contact To be part of the pack We are pulled to one another For fear of dying alone Of being alone This isolation Tortures our soul Even loners have friends To be part of the crew To sit and laugh For these times I wait Day […]

Telling Times

Abandoned are you Alone with yourself Your thoughts consume you Your doubts encourage more doubt Imprisoned by your own hand Many will realize Living with a monster is tough Tougher when you realize who the monster is You will learn many things by being alone First, who you are not Second, what you truly are […]

My Return

Before I go Take my soul Share it with the world Let my spirit press forward No remorse I took my chances Mistakes made Punches received Found myself on the ground  But still I stood My wisdom I impart Live through it You will get sick Loved ones will die You will fail A lot […]
