April, I Quit

It’s been too long I’ve tried too much Overnight fame and fortune Both of them are out of touch No longer can I spend all this time and energy Chasing things that may not even be in front of me That’s it. I quit. You heard me right I’m done for now Back to clocks, … More April, I Quit

You Mad?

A lot of people lie and say they like me when they don’t but if you think I’ll ever care I’ll tell you here and now, I won’t Spare me all the arguments and save all your complaints because caring what the haters say won’t mend my mind, it taints I’ve got nothing to conceal … More You Mad?

Finding Purpose

Nothing rips my brain apart like not having a peace of mind I look and see and search and plea and always seem to try and find Constant balance, but I can’t, I fear I’m cursed to be the kind That never sees the silent seas I seek to see and sail behind Purpose passes … More Finding Purpose

Welcome

Welcome to the melancholy mansion that makes up my mind Watch your step when walking in, the doors will close themselves behind This house don’t like it when the people come and watch and look within. The floors all creak and make knees weak when falsehoods enter with their sin No ones bested one mere … More Welcome

Here Right Now

My mind, it’s old, and yet I’m told to listen to the wise ones, how? I don’t abet, nor do I fret, the wasted ones who disavow. They all gave up, when things got tough, they stopped and said they won’t allow. Well here my friend, this is the end, and you and I are … More Here Right Now

Anne Boleyn

Such sadness, sorrow, sores of men Lie rest in all transgression, sin Such serene solitude falls in The story of this Anne Boleyn Maiden of the arts and crafts A beauty who, through all, would laugh Always thinking, shirts she’d hem And always making mice of men Sharpened tongue, a sharper heart No other could … More Anne Boleyn

A New World

Faint of Art

You really shouldn’t listen to that painter ‘cause he’s such a loser You might as well be talking to that addict who is but a user … More Faint of Art

Alone

Joy, it brings, to hear this sound It’s absence speaks so much, profound Silence Yes, I hear it so I hear it played from piano Every key strikes perfect chord Every note, ordained by Lord Come calmly, please, for you must see The thing that plagued, but then saved me Over there, there sits a … More Alone

The Medici

They were good, they were badA grip on globe, this family hadA legacy that lives todayBut may we ask: who were they? Patrons to the arts and craftsSo many deals, so many draftsFingerprints in canvas, domeAlways satiating Rome For their lifeblood? ‘Twas Pope’s accountAnd if you read any recountThe Holy coin held them afloatYet it … More The Medici

Karma

Good morning, love, how did you sleep? Such time I spent tidying my keep I made your bed, your candles lit Comfort comes, I made sure of it My bosom is but yours to use I only ask you don’t abuse I only ask that you take care For all my lands are yours to … More Karma

Sincerity

Local town hall, forum, debate The things they say will quell the hate The Senate’s fought since Rome, you know And what do we now have to show? They talk of change, they talk of new They say the things we all want to Yet when the hammer meets anvil They stand, complacent, they all … More Sincerity

A Whole New World

A Whole New World What was life like when the first person said “hey look here” What was life like for the first person who thought to steer All those people, all those tribes, living as they did before Never had they thought that someone would invent the rich and poor “Come here friends”, I … More A Whole New World

This Autumn Leaf

Who are you? What’s your belief? How are you here On this Autumn leaf? Why did you choose to climb this tree? This single, silent, sad sapling What forces forced you through the leaves And left you sitting next to me? Was it because you knew the way? Thoughts say here’s where you belong? Or … More This Autumn Leaf
