The Righteous King

Clad in iron, stonewalled keeps, maidens in the court Archers notched at every tower, guarded is this fort Moats are deep, stocked with beasts, waiting for a fight Meade ‘a plenty, grains are stored, feasts fall through the night Strong, the souls who dance within, twirling in the dark Every word, the King who speaks, … More The Righteous King

This Compass

This compass guides me, when I’m alone I need no map, I need no phone It tells me where my future lies In that direction, I cast my eyes Forging forward, no looking back I have my dog, I have my pack There is naught else that I shall need And we shall find our … More This Compass

Perspective

Perspective. It’s a well known concept, of course. After all, everyone’s heard the whole “forest from the trees” type thing. Yes, perspective. It really does matter. In fact, it matters a LOT, because without perspective, we’d all be trapped within our own tiny little boxes, just waiting to tell someone why we are right, and … More Perspective

The Song of Greed

Once upon a time before the universe existed There lived someone who thought and said “well maybe I should twist it” Lo behold, the worlds were born because He was assisted By those He made to fill the realm, the humans He enlisted He started simple, started quick, for there was so much work to … More The Song of Greed

We Done Lost Our Minds

Okay ya’ll. I haven’t written an actual blog post for a looooong time. I’ve pretty much used my site for poetry, short stories, etc. But today…oh boy. Not today. Many of you are probably familiar with the dating app, Bumble. If you aren’t, here’s a quick crash course: Tinder, but yellow. Just kidding; basically Bumble … More We Done Lost Our Minds

Believe

There is but one thing that is scary And that is to be ordinary Not unique, nor one of kind Though many seem to pay no mind   No thoughts that wander, thoughts that fly Thoughts that others can’t deny It is so frightening in this place Endless darkness; timeless space   Naught becomes of … More Believe

Pyramid

Pain It fills my veins Evades the remedies Reaches all my extremities A life of love so temporary, I allude I opt instead for darkness, and solitude Pen and pad are all I want, they’re all I need Though I try to hide the pain, each day I grieve Search for calm and peace of … More Pyramid

Together

In my chamber, losing sleep Rocking, thinking, silently Watching broadcasts quietly Observe this world, so violently I wonder if the day will be When people live, peacefully Shedding war, with treaty No longer loving fearfully It all could change, if only we Would be the change we want to see We must admit, reluctantly To … More Together

What We Are

At night, I know, my mind has proved For that’s when all the mask’s removed We work and play, and yet we think Of all the things we want, a link   A link to all we want to be So instead we make a fantasy We dream and wish and wish and dream And … More What We Are

Don’t Wait

Oftentimes, I’ll look to see The person looking back at me Watching through a hazy lens At who that strange reflection is   Staring forward, several blinks Is he the person that he thinks? Does he do the things he speaks? Is practice coming from the preach?   My eyes still glare, this man ahead … More Don’t Wait

My Dog

My Dog I wonder if my dog Knows he’s a dog Or if his cute little brain Is clouded in smog And instead he assumes He’s a human like me With thumbs all opposable And not paws as his feet I wonder if he thinks That I’m his pet to keep Keeping my water bowl … More My Dog

My Dog is Famous

Oooookay! Where do I even begin? I suppose a little background context is a good place to start. So my dog, Mr Baxter, has a nasty habit of chewing his leashes. He’s pretty much the perfect pup outside of that one annoying, economically burdening trait. Most of my brainstorming for writing is done with a … More My Dog is Famous
