Cherish

I drove in thought, as tend I do On whim, I paused as I passed through Pulled aside and spent the day Atop the bluffs, where my dog played And though he is not with me now I felt him there, some way, somehow The moss, a feel of fur it had The breeze, sound … More Cherish

Reflections

A one way mirror, it must be For them, it’s clearer seen than me I look to my left I look to my right I know not where to walk tonight Should I take this path? Should I go there? Feign the footsteps of who dare? Nothings known on a false throne Uncertainty is all … More Reflections

Hello, Pip!

Hello pretty Pip! I think its time I wrote a pweem So although my friends all know ‘twas coming This won’t be as it seems Never mind, okay I lied That’s exactly what this is It’s just a pweem, with glamour, gleam Were she a drink, she’s fizz   Welcome to the world, my girl … More Hello, Pip!

Committed

Committed, so deep in it I will die before I quit it Its both Dark and light my mind’s mitosis, but you all already know this All these Ideas pouring out, overwhelming my head’s funnel My Hands are moving so damn much I’m thirty-five with carpal tunnel And I Experiment with rhythms I play around … More Committed

An Honest Plea

I want to do an exercise. An exercise on open-mindedness, and whether or not our species is capable of un-conditioning their minds from the dogmatic stranglehold that “society” has upon them. So here goes. Picture yourself sitting in a chair in your living room. You’re there all by yourself, with nothing whatsoever to do. No … More An Honest Plea

Happy Birthday, Mom

Happy birthday, Mom Six years have passed, I know I can’t lie it still feels like You were just with me, though You’re missed more than anything In thoughts each, every day And yes it’s true that not for you I’d have no words to say Everything I’m doing Every word I write Is fueled … More Happy Birthday, Mom

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

Confession Booth

Walking down this lonely aisle Hoping it won’t take awhile To confess what’s on my mind I draw the curtain, then unwind Forgive me Father, I have sinned “Tell me Son, what brings you in?” I cannot make recompense I can’t find your first defense “Wait my child, what do you mean?” Just listen please, … More Confession Booth

Worlds of War

With the birds I share this view, indeed Yes it’s lonely, but it’s the only Only thing I seem to see Flying high up in the sky Looking down on things below See amidst, we’re so transfixed On that which sells tix to the show And yet if We flipped the switch Then maybe we … More Worlds of War

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

Vice Versa

Everybody thinks they’re smartest They do so much or work the hardest What if someone told you, nay That we all carry equal weight? I do not care anymore I’ll find what I am looking for Rising till I reach their floor Laugh at the lock then break the door It’s not a thing that … More Vice Versa

Hid Intentions

Never have I ever wrote a word I don’t remember, sitting silent serving purpose in the spaces that they’re set I know because I inked them from the places that I thinked them which at times might seem erratic, but I never forget Forget the possibility that if not you it must be me, but … More Hid Intentions

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

Marionette

It makes no sense, at least to me Strings are pulled haphazardly Never knowing why, or when A tale to tell, but there’s no pen Rhyme and reason, both absent And yet the cruelty won’t relent Overstaying welcomes Like letters that are never sent A dictator, yes it’s true It controls me, and controls you … More Marionette

Fitting In

Squares in squares, circles sit, triangles are full of it They all know just what they are; defined, described, a shooting star They all have a place to be A place that holds them, place that keeps Keeps the hardened world outside The high, the low, the any tide Normalcy is what they’re fed Waking … More Fitting In

Wildcard

I know you know I know the things that dwell inside your mind And even though that may be so there’s still much I want to find I don’t care if it’s up there and hasn’t seen the light of day Anything you say or sing it will always be okay I often wonder when … More Wildcard
