New Leaves

You’ve moved on, yeah? You’re happy now I’m glad for you And yet, somehow Memories still fill my mind The good, the bad, the happy kind You may not still think of me But I have not forgotten, see Every love, they make their mark They light up thoughts when things get dark A laugh, … More New Leaves

Sincerely Signed

Listen, please. I must know how. I have so much to say right now. My mind is tearing me from Thou and begging me to disavow. Is this something I should allow? I need to know right here, and now. I’ve every reason not to fall yet here I stand before and bow. Why won’t … More Sincerely Signed

My Idols

My closest friends, they’re here, I know Em, and Fitz, and Frost, and Poe They do not sit and dine with me They reside in my mind, you see   We write, we wonder, work and play We converse every single day Whispers in the wind and skies The glint that’s deep inside my eyes … More My Idols

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

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

The Lannister

Hello dear you love me yes, I hear your heart, it’s thirst Come close to me but let me see, some things I must say first This is that which I would think I prob’ly need to mention You’ll see my pen is out of ink but I still draw attention A lion isn’t lonely … More The Lannister

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

The Actor

A twisted tale of truth he hid, as lying’s what he always did Fleeing from the fear his bedroom mirror might make He never judged the things he’d do, but if the same was done by you His fingers would be first to point out every mistake   No thought for who he really was, … More The Actor

Life

A raindrop has one chance to fall To land where it might fulfill all As do dandelions sway They, just once, will drift away Breeze will carry, gently now The seeds of life that they endow No second chances, no regrets One life is what each person gets Do not be nervous Feel not afraid … More Life

Soulmate

I want you to know that you aren’t all alone I want you to know I’m here too I want you to see all the struggles in me And I want you to know I love you There’s nothing at all that could push me away Though I know it’s not easy to do It’s … More Soulmate

Hard to Say

What is this new sensation that has taken hold of me? Never has it been so hard to say the things I mean It’s so confusing feeling all this vulnerability I hate it so but you should know you’ve set my caged heart free These chains locking the old me are something now I know … More Hard to Say

When I’m Gone

It saddens me that people are So short-sighted, they don’t see far And that these words will not be read Until I live no more, lay dead It is the truth, I do not care What you might think, you’re unaware Just what these things I say right now Might truly mean, and yet somehow … More When I’m Gone

Within

I am not who I was before The man ‘twas me I so deplore He’s hanging, cuffed, and sins no more Locked deep behind my closet door In darkness he now dwells, alone His mem’ry cuts straight to the bone It weighs me down like rock and stone And hates that I’ve, at last, outgrown … More Within

Persevere

I care not for opinions, the things I say are true My conscience guides and truth resides in action, not with you If you must talk then walk the walk, because otherwise You’re all the same, the fact remains, you’re jealous and unwise Weakness fosters hate for those who climb above the rest They try … More Persevere
