Welcome

Welcome to the melancholy mansion that makes up my mind Watch your step when walking in, the doors will close themselves behind This house don’t like it when the people come and watch and look within. The floors all creak and make knees weak when falsehoods enter with their sin No ones bested one mere … More Welcome

Here Right Now

My mind, it’s old, and yet I’m told to listen to the wise ones, how? I don’t abet, nor do I fret, the wasted ones who disavow. They all gave up, when things got tough, they stopped and said they won’t allow. Well here my friend, this is the end, and you and I are … More Here Right Now

Anne Boleyn

Such sadness, sorrow, sores of men Lie rest in all transgression, sin Such serene solitude falls in The story of this Anne Boleyn Maiden of the arts and crafts A beauty who, through all, would laugh Always thinking, shirts she’d hem And always making mice of men Sharpened tongue, a sharper heart No other could … More Anne Boleyn

Alone

Joy, it brings, to hear this sound It’s absence speaks so much, profound Silence Yes, I hear it so I hear it played from piano Every key strikes perfect chord Every note, ordained by Lord Come calmly, please, for you must see The thing that plagued, but then saved me Over there, there sits a … More Alone

The Medici

They were good, they were badA grip on globe, this family hadA legacy that lives todayBut may we ask: who were they?

Karma

Good morning, love, how did you sleep? Such time I spent tidying my keep I made your bed, your candles lit Comfort comes, I made sure of it My bosom is but yours to use I only ask you don’t abuse I only ask that you take care For all my lands are yours to … More Karma

Sincerity

Local town hall, forum, debate The things they say will quell the hate The Senate’s fought since Rome, you know And what do we now have to show?

A Whole New World

This Autumn Leaf

Who are you? What’s your belief? How are you here On this Autumn leaf? Why did you choose to climb this tree? This single, silent, sad sapling What forces forced you through the leaves And left you sitting next to me? Was it because you knew the way? Thoughts say here’s where you belong? Or … More This Autumn Leaf

Abandonment

So many things I’d do tonight, if God Himself stood here right now I would not look Him in the eye, I would not cower ‘fore and bow I would respect Him though I’ll say, I would not brashly disavow I’d give Him chance to tell, explain, the things He’s done, this I’d allow Halls … More Abandonment

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

Beelzebub

Who resides up in my mind? There’s someone that’s a ghost to me I ask him to unlock the door but he looks, laughs, and flaunts the key Why will he not just open up and tell me who I’m s’posed to be? I hate the things he haunts me with and all the things … More Beelzebub

The Cheshire Cat

Don’t you call me crazy just because my mind is mad I would sacrifice my brain if it weren’t the only one I had I think in rhythm Speak in rhyme There’s darkness always darting through this shaded shattered mind Worlds are built with all the guilt and pain that plagues the thoughts I think … More The Cheshire Cat

Critics

Listen, critic, please understand Read these words, and watch my hand You joke about these poems I write You say they’re rigid, and won’t take flight Let me explain one thing to you You clearly don’t get what I do My words are raw, they don’t need flair And honestly, I do not care I … More Critics

Gratitude

Picture this: you’re eighty-three and open up a photo book All your family’s front of you and sees each smile; every look I assume most in the room have not even been born of yet But each of them, with every grin, will hear the things you won’t forget You will sit there and recall … More Gratitude

Prisons Profit

Moonstruck

If you lived inside a padded tower and held all of the people’s power never sweating on your brow What would you do? Would you make the people cower, would you make them serve somehow, would you make the people bow? Or do you think that you would prove? Prove what? I’m glad you asked, … More Moonstruck
