The Lonely Violin

My Last Prayer

Are you there, Lord? I need to know I need the truth I need it so I do not know if acts of mine Are of free will, or yours divine The more I ask myself of this The less I think that you exist Why won’t you simply speak to me? Why won’t you … More My Last Prayer

Haters, Explained

I’d like to take a moment to discuss the concept of “haters”. Because I believe I have figured something out that makes a lot more sense to me now than it did years ago when I just got started into writing stuff. Human beings are animals. I think we can all come to terms with … More Haters, Explained

123

Speak a little louder ya’ll, it’s kinda hard to hear you now All these voices screaming, shouting, everybody’s crying foul “They don’t like me!” “They’re so hateful!” “This is how I want to live!” Let me dig a hole (or hill?) for all the fucks I want to give Look. No one really cares about … More 123

Never Surrender

There is no kind to rest my mind, are these thoughts blessings or a curse I do not know, but they all grow, inside me plaguing every verse Why can’t I shake them, I so hate them, they pull my drive back in reverse These words I’ve leaned on make me better but sometimes they … More Never Surrender

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

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

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

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

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

Morgan Le Fey

Recognize where my intentions lie by looking deep into my eyes, you will find I don’t disguise the things that others try to hide – I hate the lies, I hear the cries of all the lives they criticize while all they do is formalize and advertise how we should live and demonize the ones … More Morgan Le Fey

My Sacred Psalm

You want to know what stands between The things they write, and what I mean? Not one word have I wrote and thought I hope this is something they bought The words I write aren’t things to sell They’re all just stories that I tell Art is not a craft of number Art is lightning, … More My Sacred Psalm

Brothers in Arms

You ask me, why spend life so bottled in? Why not go out, enjoy the world? I’ll tell you love, here, come right in But first let me untie what’s curled Sometimes we want to get away Forgetting what we saw Others, they just prance and play Not knowing how we’ll someday fall What year … More Brothers in Arms

Fly Away

If you saw her true interior Past the toughened, hard exterior Saw the sadness and the fear in her Youd’ve never said those things Every day she stays devout And keeps her calm as you just shout Of things you know nothing about Blinded by the hate it brings Granted taken, you have done Oblivious … More Fly Away
