    Daylight slices Grass to blades It passes away as Lily shadows wilt to gray; The hills are Filled with graves They sway under night Like sharks in waves Their moonlit teeth Have come to graze On a waft of frost Where the leaf decays I strike a match ...

  • Gold Bits Amidst Numbness

    Twirling a frayed thread Afraid of what it was I must’ve said Because It does Sting To be aware of So much Of such A comforting feeling High above Once valid Now stunting Pallid Infected by What I wanted To do Haunted I never did Instead I hid Fr...

  • Your Patient Awaits Treatment, Doctor

    He needs a neurotic antibiotic, If you’re not too hectic now. And a narcissistic antiseptic, If you’d conclude to allow. Call a cathartic medic. He’s heart sick With a nickel to his name. Rip the IV from his vein. Don’t worry,...

    Standing amidst barren trees and under stars It is summer again Two people meet awakening tides of emotions Long since abandoned Blood roars along hot beds of both of their veins One wears a false face Hope and Fear battle for eons; for seconds She loo...

  • And so he falls?

    A two-step to the choice. A commitment made of the present As it’s very nature contorts and yields. As when by a superior force. Defenses shatter. Tender, sharp proves the doubt. But no counter-moves are allowed. Waves batter and the din’...

  • An Untitled Poem

    Drowning in your eyes Warm puddles of green. The water looked so inviting but now I’m drowning in you. To silence my choking cries Merely close your emerald eyes. Darkness and silence, I think I’d rather be buried. If you keep me captive in...

  • Falling Up

    For weeks I’ve spiraled down, Down into a dark despair.. For weeks I’ve been numb.. Numb and without a care. You were there, you were there. For days I’ve felt nothing, Nothing and nothing and nothing. For days I’ve been dead.. ...

  • Rhythm of the Sky

    Watching the clouds, Narrate their stories.. Of pure love and hate, the hist’ry of man. Float by the dragons, The demons of late. Cavemen and Kings, They’re all the same. Plagues and famine, rotting the land. Send in the flood, destroying i...

  • He, the Night.

    I have stolen. I have killed. I have captured people’s wills. In the night their blood is spilled, by my hand, their lives beholden to my whim and grand design. Who has fortune? Gone it is. After planned analysis, reputations are maligned, for my...

  • Worth

    How have I failed entirely to prove the worth I feel must be inherent to my life? My soul has lost the drive for futile goals, their purpose now a mystery. I shrink within redundancy, my cries a hollow, lifeless plea for meaning in a broken world of ha...

  • Whorship (Mature)

    In the cover of blackness -of night and scant dress- they boarded our vessel and forced us to wrestle. In each hand a gun they knocked all us down, all britches and garters battling with no quarters. They were not crazy, not even old Daisy even though ...

  • Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

    I will climb on the shoulders of giants, and look to the sulking sky, never such withering boredom, never such a deafening cry. I will be eagerly searching for God, or maybe depose him and make up my own, I will chase the horizon and play with the clou...

  • Brittle

    A clean break, you said. It will be better this way, you said. A hollow laugh escaped my pale lips. So why not take my frail, aged bones and give them a clean break as well? I tried to phone the doctor, to ask him his professional opinion on the mat...

  • Strapped To The Seat, Clinging For Dear Life

    I skid on ice on the way home from the end of an era. All the sudden I lost control and spun around, the world twirling like a child pulling the streamers of the Maypole. The brakes failed, my steering locked. Flashing before my eyes. Images of a l...

  • The Fault, The Blame, The In Between

    His contorted faces plague my sleeping eyes. There is one for each season, there is one for each disguise. But no, he is not the reason why. Although, shamefully I must confess that this method of hiding I really do detest. I want to carve the memory i...

  • Now, Don't You Dare

    My heart dropped to my shoes. My eyes are grey instead of blue. I haven’t been the same. I don’t want to play this fucking game. Those eyes haunt my dreams. I’m tearing at the seams. Broken bones, nasty bruises. Why am I the one that loses? Someo...
