Communicate

Ravens speak darkness while Frost speaks of snow But tormented minds share a likeness, you know Rather than rhythm repeating tempo I’ll ink what I think as the rules I let go Words are not wisdom they’re just thoughts that we think And letters are naught but concepts that you shrink Shrink into something that … More Communicate

Baxident

I told him to sit down and wait, so I could get my shoestrings tied I told him it would be one moment until I let him outside As I look back what does he do? Decides to be a bad, bad dog I know I raised no lumberjack, but still he drops a big … More Baxident

Checkmate

I do not claim to be the best I compete not with all the rest The things I write are not for fun It’s to unload this loaded gun As tensions rise, so do our acts And if you look at all the facts You’ll see that nothing ever changed That things were simply rearranged … More Checkmate

A Waste of Time

A Waste of Time How often do we fall for things that people say and do? How often do we wonder if the things they say are true? And when there’s doubt we call them out when stories don’t connect I wish I had a dollar for each lie that we collect What makes us … More A Waste of Time

Love in Life

So sorely do we wish to find A person who’s just like our kind Someone who’s just as weird as us That we can know and love and trust A person that just lets us be And even when we disagree They know that we’re still meant for them And do not argue and condemn … More Love in Life

Dog Tornado

Are those pillows to your liking? Since you’ve spread them everywhere? Are you packing to go hiking? You sure took time arranging, there I do not get it, little dude Why must you make a mess? To be frank, it’s kinda rude Can you not just chill and rest? All the blankets, all the throws … More Dog Tornado

Dog Breath

What do you do when you’re faced with a curse? A fate that is worse than your death? A thing that can just be described as the worst A thing that is Baxter’s dog breath? I usually let him jump onto my lap It’s not a big deal, normally But when I wake up after … More Dog Breath

Sleepenstein

Since all I ever do is sleep, a new word I shall give Replace each word with “sleep” I will, instead of “life” or “live” We do not have much time to waste, my point, do not contort So sleep each day as if your last, because our sleep is short I hate it when … More Sleepenstein

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

Sleepster

If you were to ask “What’s he good at now, Matt?” I would tell you that there is one thing If you were to ask “Does it make him look fat?” I would say “Really? Just look at the thing.” For of all of the things we can do in this world He basically cares … More Sleepster

Okay, Dog

Okay, dog, I love you bro But there are some things you must know So please don’t take this the wrong way They’re just some things I have to say Please stop yawning in my face Your breath is worse than cans of mace It’s so bad that I bet somehow One day you’ll singe … More Okay, Dog

Necessary

NECESSARY I think I’ll write a poem that speaks epic truth, tonight It doesn’t matter if you tend to lean left or lean right Politics aren’t helping us, the gap is greater in-between We need to stop fixating on whose King or who is Queen We need to shift the focus to what matters, that’s … More Necessary

Smoke and Mirrors

Animals. Miscreants. Products of society. Monsters making mice of men and dodging notoriety When will people realize that this world’s not what we think it is? If you’re naive and say it is just do a quick analysis Peace. Love. A child’s future without war. All these things they advertise are not what they are … More Smoke and Mirrors

The One: First Entry

Can we be honest with ourselves for a moment? I want to talk about some things. Things like Facebook. Twitter. Instagram, perhaps. Hell, even Tinder…anything that lets people advertise who they are (or at least who they want to be) without having to concern themselves with the real world. Yeah, I know. It’s not easy … More The One: First Entry
