  • A Poem (A Poem)

    This used to be a poem (well, I guess… it still is) But I went crazy and deleted it, because I thought it was shit. And because we can’t actually delete, (which makes me kinda pissed). I’ll replace it with some other thing, though I d...

  • The Darkness of Mere Being

    A sea of souls Below me Is restless and cries out in the void And every one an island in The darkness of mere being Astoundingly Inclusive The ones who have the gold make the rules The bylaws ever shifting in The darkness of mere being The dew drops fl...

  • Life ( Poem )

    A change of world, A change of heart A change of life, like a smelly fart. It’s like a movie, You always see. Or like a small but, growing tree. I live my life, I always think right Maybe wrong, but this isn’t a fight. I may lie, changing m...

    A light rain falling; The washed air glows in sunlight. Droplets bounce and burst, Sparkling, from the umbrella. My own portable rainbow.

    Nature overtaking the civilized world Like day overtaking night Like a flag being unfurled Draped over the human blight! The cities of yore show their wear The streets break and crack To make room for new life to bear The fruits of nature begin to atta...

  • Cyrano

    I am the shadow of what could be. Never truly living up to the full potential Dabble in all but finish none, I am what should have been This and that always there but never present A frustration borne of a need to succeed but seldom doing as such Philo...

  • Past Experience

    Just because the scars don’t show Doesn’t mean they weren’t caused Doesn’t mean there weren’t victims Of a mental holocaust. And while these wounds have long since healed The reminders, they stay raised Just waiting for th...

  • Holding Back

    So much tension, so much pain, I feel so much for you, Why don’t you feel the same? All this time, it was going so well, Suddenly reality hits, And now I want to yell… Not at you, but at the world, For tricking me yet again, I hate how it ...

  • The Marionette's Revenge

    She twiddled fingers and rasped her voice to rid his brain of thought of choice. Her throat, the womb that knit her lies; amniocentesis to drain disguise— Dipping line, downward spin— She made him careless, drowned in gin. Still, he hid the...

  • Live Your Lyrics

    Bop your head, Tap your feet, Follow along, Get up out of your seat. Life is a journey, Life is a song. Play the right music, Always strum along. Compose a symphony, Play it all solo. It’s your time to thrive, Not become a hobo. It’s all an...

  • The Color of Water

    My life is clay, devoid of form For some old, ancient potter A lump of mass, I stand and think Of what here brought me to the brink And only did I wish to know The color of water Alone I stand and take abuse Like a forsaken daughter A song for pictures...

    My thoughts are all in radio I think of all the trees I wonder What’re our frequencies The northern sky is silent now Except for scattered thoughts They’re strangely Random; there are lots Running coffee cargo is A basic modern task And sti...

  • Lucky You, Unlucky Me

    You win the lottery, I find a penny. You run out of ideas, I’ve got many. I was the best for you, You seemed to be the best for me. I gave you my heart, What you returned was infested with fleas. You had it all, I thought I did too. But now it se...

  • Through The Fair

    And he saw her as she walked through the fair; Her eyes glistening in the evening twilight. The stone-white veil skipping over the ground; A noble relic of a time gone by. And with that, she was gone.

  • Stealer of Daylight

    Like dragons of old who swallowed the sun, the Gainful Employment Dragon consumes the best part of the day leaving only the fat and gristle. If only drums and firecrackers could scare it away, removing the gloom that settles and suffocates.
