Down on my luck,
Good day gone wrong.
Today is heartbreak,
So hear this song.
My life has been rough,
This I need not say.
The world is cruel,
Yet I am lost in its fray.
So where I am,
Is the pit of a curse.
My deadly heritage,

Florence seemed so innocent from above,
Encompassed within the mountainous scene.
Faint whispers spoke of mystery and love,
It was beauty—unfolding like a dream.
A mesmerizing spirit choked the air,
Stealing the hearts of those who took a... (more »)
For some, fear comes in form of sharpened sword
Or death by hanging from the fragile throat.
That fear is mine. I hang by silken cord
Belonging to the web a spider wrote.
Eight lengthy legs, eight starved and thin and foul.
She lurks, all... (more »)
“Are you experienced? Have you ever
been experienced?” I’ve never, Jimi.
Never made out gold like you – sweat shiny,
Living nineteen sixties hippie fever.
Headband scarf, velvet suit, friends’ “mean drinker,”
You: the god.... (more »)
What awaits you when you open a book?
The whole wide world is at your fingertips.
Why don’t you come along and take a look,
And embark on some very special trips.
Your journeys will take you both near and far.
From outer space to distant... (more »)
My heroes may be covered in tattoos,
But they do not deserve endless bashing
They saved me, became my lyrical muse
Voices, that caught me when I was crashing
The screams some don’t even consider music
Dried every tear, comforting... (more »)
You swear you never will
I've heard you swear before
you hurt till you've had your fill
the pain you just ignore
"You don't have to", I say
"I want to", is her answer
life isn't a game you play

A chemical reaction, nothing more:
Mere hormones running rampant through our veins.
But, still, we focus on it and ignore
Whatever sense or logic that remains.
It causes pain and sorrow all around,
Regardless of the happiness once had.

My thoughts; endure they will yet can’t escape
This straining mind and mouth won’t harmonize
I stutter; soundless, trembling lips agape
and harshly fight to look you in the eyes
When noises burn upon my cautious ears,
I bang my... (more »)
A million words are falling from the sky;
The drops all bleed together, pure and bright.
The black streets swell—the streams will not run dry
For vivid sounds do clear the dust tonight.
Seeping into gutters past the leaves
The phrases rush... (more »)
I’m not sure if you’ve noticed
The feelings I’ve developed for you
Are the feelings mutual?
Am I seeing what I wanna see?
Am I just a friend?
Or something more?
Tell me the truth
Be real wit me
Lay it on me
Be completely honest... (more »)
From the beginning
We’ve always been good friends
There are some things we’ve discussed
That I haven’t even felt comfortable enough
To share with my own family
You call me your salvation
But its you I pick up the telephone and call... (more »)
There was a girl who fell in love so deep,
with eyes of green and laughter like the sun.
She gave her heart solely for him to keep,
for she believed that he had been the one.
When winter hit, her hope was bit by frost;
his kiss was colder... (more »)
Each passing day deeper my love shall drown
I’ll suffocate alone grasping for breath
My hope will fray as my fears will weigh down
I’ll shed a tear as my pain is my death
My eyes will close and see my love falter
The madness will keep... (more »)
To drown, I did not need an endless sea,
only the rain that never ceased to fall.
My heart, imprisoned under lock and key,
immersed, left me a listless, broken doll.
Trapped in a darkness no one else could see,
your voice was the sole... (more »)
