I Don’t Rap

Cars and clothes are cool, I guess They’re great when you want girls and sex It must be nice to be so dumb When every line you write is numb   Numb from all the things we feel And all the shit that makes life real Bigger houses, bigger banks You paid her tab? Hey … More I Don’t Rap

Windsor Knots

Masks are nice, they’re pretty, right? Just look at what I wear tonight This suit is fitted – these winds? Or not You’d love all of these things I’ve got   All the lights shine onto you When we fall in this photo booth Yeah, its fun, alright I guess How everything lights up that … More Windsor Knots

Love

A man is lost in a dilemma His love, his heart, his dearest Stella She dances, sings, does everything That causes men to offer ring   But there’s one knot tied in this chain He never thought he’d love again He was sent off, to war, you see And it was thought, that died, had … More Love

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

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

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

Conscience

Things we think we know are true The life we live, both me and you So often isn’t candid truth I say to this confession booth What rules are right? What rules are wrong? What lyrics tell A moral song? These questions, see, exist to ask Just what, in life, is our great task? To … More Conscience

Concept

Today a message came to me From one who reads my poetry The sender asked just how I write And how my ideas come to light He wanted help for what Block had caused Asked “How come your content’s never paused?” Tonight, my friend, I’ll heed your call And tell you how I break that … More Concept

Every single second Each and every single day Is a blessing given to us For us to use and play   Life is but a moment A brief wrinkle in time A canvas to be colored In or outside of the line   You see, its not a rigid path Through which all are meant … More Make it Count

Pyramid

Pain It fills my veins Evades the remedies Reaches all my extremities A life of love so temporary, I allude I opt instead for darkness, and solitude Pen and pad are all I want, they’re all I need Though I try to hide the pain, each day I grieve Search for calm and peace of … More Pyramid

No I Say

You want an album? No I say Cause I don’t rap, not any day I just write, my words they say Enough for you and me today   I get it, all these things I write They make sense when you read at night This world is filled with hate and fright And reading lends … More No I Say

Without You

So long they’ve waited, wandering Watching, waiting, listening For the next one, pondering Ever are they wondering   The wait is over, never more Alas, the knock is at the door Get up and answer, I implore You’ve found your long, and lost Lenore   The time has come, turn back the clock The stories … More Without You
