The World I wish

The world I wish for is not real It has no commercial appeal Built upon a land that feels Not what spins on those black reels All measured by one simple way What’s deep inside, and not portrayed Opinions mean no more to me Than living life emotion-free Knowing someone costs a lot Its time … More The World I wish

Christmas: 2021

‘Twas the night before Christmas And all through the house Not a creature was stirring …except Missus Clowse “Get up you old fat man!” “You’ve a job to do!” “Gifts don’t wrap themselves!” “So stop hitting ‘Snooze’!” And from that point on This old Santa could tell That this one year’s Christmas Was gonna be … More Christmas: 2021

A Step at a Time

I ask Him where this road will go He answers, saying “I don’t know” “Your path: its paved by you alone” “And every act lays one more stone” My mind, it mulls these words he spoke So many thoughts they do provoke No longer shall I wonder “where” For its the “now” that gets me … More A Step at a Time

Shooting Stars

So many things happen in life That cause us pain, anguish, or strife Things that make us question Him Be it loss, or love, or sin Moments pass when we’re astray Confused, consumed, cornered, at bay Yet if we can stay the course There exists an age old force Something that comes from within But … More Shooting Stars

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

Haters

People see you rise and they all pray for your demise I’ll never get how things can change with the ones you know and love They see a like and hate it and the day you know you made it you look back and no ones left but these new people up above But wait! … More Haters

The Lonely Violin

The Lonely Violin I want so much to leave these things I want so much to still these strings I want, so much, a calm within Please slow your tempo, violin Your music brings the light of day I know this, love, it leads the way The songs you sing are beauty, yes Yet torment … More The Lonely Violin

Priorities

Silence, eternal I idolize the thought of it I hear the sound Its all around I want so much to make it quit Doubts, they’re torture They twist the knife inside my heart They plague my mind They make me blind They tear my everything apart Why can’t I just simplify the things that keep … More Priorities

Behind Bars

Things are changing for me lately, each day for me seems like a haze Ink in wells and all these spells that’s how I spend all of my days Conversations that don’t mean much. Shallow talk I won’t even touch. My hateful thoughts are so enflamed I saw one light up and combust. Don’t care … More Behind Bars

My Plea

All these thoughts that hide inside are more than just things in our mind, they’re things that we all can confide and they deserve to be defined. Living in this world we’ve clayed has made us rotten, so decayed, that no one seems to know the answer to “how is a smile made?” Nothing matters … More My Plea

A Turn of Events

Once upon a time a lovely maiden did her chores She cooked and cleaned and washed and dried and wiped down all the floors And though her Lord looked down at her, ironically this man Would force himself upon her because when you’re Lord you think you can He used her for his twisted games, … More A Turn of Events

L-ego

If you want truth, then look no more For it is knocking at your door The hardest thing to think about Is that which causes us to doubt You’re wrong. I’m sorry, but it’s so The question you must ask now, though Do I admit that which is right Or keep on putting up this … More L-ego

Top 10 (Word) Plays

We all know that athletes get highlight reels every week so we can see the coolest plays in a given sport in case we missed them. Well, I thought I’d show some love to the sportsmen/women of word-smithery. Anyone who’s read my work before is fully aware that I’m consumed (and possibly obsessive) over the … More Top 10 (Word) Plays
