Less is More

There’s gotta be a reason for these sayings to be said sometimesTyping all these stereos, there’s context behind every lineWe joke that nice guys finish last yet struggle with believing itBut our subconscious can’t be fooled, it says don’t be so full of shit It matters not if we admit, but every mind is filled … More Less is More

Place Your Vet

Mr. Baxter, he loves his life So much so, he took a knife Looked down at his abdomen And said “Know what? Screw this, I’m in” I looked at him, puzzled of course Because I’m fairly sure discourse Is capable among we men Not dogs, you know? Only humans So after getting over that I … More Place Your Vet

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

If I Must

You may not like it, but rules are made It does not matter, sunshine, or shade I truly do feel bad for you But this is what we have to do I know you hate it, but it must be Like trees that grow from one small seed So don’t complain, it’s for the best … More If I Must

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

Baxter, Baxter

Baxter, Baxter, treat-eat master Always looking for a bite Always needing his next feeding Chompers chewing every night If he’s awake that means he’s hungry There is no if and or when If he’s not sleeping he is eating Tummy always grumble’n Ding ding ding! You hear that ring? Ears up, that was the microwave … More Baxter, Baxter

Why

What is this? I see this mirror Reflecting back my greatest fear All events we see and hear Their purpose, all, remains unclear Rhyme and reason have no place In this forgotten, empty space We question why, yet answered naught As chaos, cruelly, has appeared Death, it laughs with irony It’s darkness finds the light … More Why

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

Dog Rhymes

Romeo & Juliet

I feel the pain I feel it, yes I feel the sear that sits, unrests This knife is there It’s unaware It gleans and rests, asks if you dare It teases you You know it’s true It’s nothing that you’d ever do It stays, the thought It isn’t caught It’s in our minds, it is … More Romeo & Juliet

The Book of Job

Never have I ever longed for cold and bleak December, no, that month is writhe with all my plight, it holds the worst things I remember There is but one day I yearn, it is on the twenty-third, ‘tis a day when children pray and do things that which they all learn But underneath that … More The Book of Job

Loss of the Loved

Hey there you, what a day The sun is out and children play Care for naught, and naught a care If only Life could pause and stay A gleeful sight Until midnight When all dark thoughts Turn on a light Making me remember That sad month before September All hope was lost, the greatest cost … More Loss of the Loved

After Life

What comes next I want to know My mind needs mending Madly so Fear is part of everything The why behind the why behind The good, the bad, the greatest deed Fear is there with its own kind Madness, Anger, Lust, Contempt They’re all part of its posse, see And if it isn’t held at … More After Life

Laissez-Faire

I wish I may, I wish I might I wish to find a star tonight One that glances when it dances For my heart and sees my plight One that’s out there In the sky Hidden from the naked eye Someone seeking, all alone Eyes set forward, not on a phone I wish I may, … More Laissez-Faire

I Heard That!

Majestic Mr Baxter He’s back, and don’t you know His paws, they hide in this car ride As he waits to steal the show See, we’ve discussed how we must trust This pup, for up is down And backwards god is dog, I say When written in this town Some may scoff, but they’re just … More I Heard That!
