    Six intense, burning eyes stare me down, collectively the eyes are their own entity, but separately they are much, much more. They all contain the same lackluster shine, A dull groaning passing as a reflection. Like cold, stationary, sad marbles that by coincidence happened to be lodged in...

    There’s dirt on my soul and I didn’t put it there It’s baking to my flesh cracked in the summers’ heat. I have dirt on my soul Most times more than I can bear Inside it lingers and itches Never quite turning to dust. I don’t remember the last time I felt clean, or safe enough ...

    Who Are You? I haven't seen YOU before in my life. Where is my love- Rosie- my wife? I could have sworn she was lying next to me here... Oh oh there you are! You look ravishing dear! Who is that stranger that hovers by the door? He wears a nurses scrubs- have you seen him before? He say...

    To blame someone else is not to be blameless. None of us are free. God spoke of blameless ones- the ones to be saved. Where are they now? The innocent sheep must have strayed. Whats left is the back-washed dregs, the nephilim which Noah overlooked as stowaways. When the sheep are brou...

    It’s easier to think you are dead. Or that you never were to begin with. Encompassing emptiness of my bed, An ocean from which I have grown seasick. It felt so good to believe you’re there, Lover substantial, not one to pretend. One who really looked and saw, one that dared. Come forwar...

    Poor little birdy, still caged in the ribs of an animal long deceased. Poking it's head out between the sun bleached bones, a solar white; Blinding. It had been devoured, (swallowed whole) feathers flapping frantically talons scratching down the sides damaging the esophagus. Yet...

    A liar once said "All scars heal in time." He'd change his theory upon meeting me. Hurt is too great fot the time to confine, Has no finish line, ignores mournful pleas. Beneath my skin my scars hold symmetry. The unwavering mirror images. My dimensions match, a brand of hones...

    Burning eyes stand out from the crowd, Full of more than laughter- Contempt, cruel, anger. Tight clothes cling to her unforgiving body, Where curves are forming. To me it looks like she swallowed her pitchfork. Her low swooping bangs and high cheekbones Shadow the passage to her insides. I ...

    Syrupy thick smoke chokes and suffocates. It seeps seamlessly into the system, devouring self- control along the way. A siren sings songs misleading unsuspecting victims to their detriment. Immersing in a steamy tar enriched shower. Suddenly the smoky rings turn to chains, impossible to break ...

    Shovelers, shovel slowly breaking their spines, moms driving their kids afraid of any incline. Hip, hip hooray is what I would say, except one problem…. . It’s not a snowday! A 2-hour delay is what made this a ridiculous day. No sleeping in late, no fun play date. No snuggly snug...

    Translucent shimmers of broken glass imitate the northern lights. I notice the abandoned toys of nearby school children. I see a defiled tree of black spite, a swastika awkwardly etched. I smell decomposed, rotting leaves, And the stale fear of those before me. Sharp, obtuse shards of peppermi...

    I want to prove you wrong, and show you up as the coward that gave up too quick. I'm gonna prove to you and everybody else, I'm not as helpless as you painted me. I'm not so very pathetic if you give me time to prove my stength. If I push you away it's because I'...

    Fallen short, fingers striding reaching for broken pieces. Hope seeping through the bloodied bandages. Memories reflected, shattered bottles illuminating the forgotten. Butterfly landing on a windowsill. The person trapped inside, urging it to fly onward, and pleading (to whomever may be ...

    Excuse me good person, I don't mean to be a burden. Allow me to hold open this door I don't mind if my arms get sore. Is that your nose stuck up so high in the air? It's unbecoming of a ladies' nostrils to flare. Pardon me if I was unaware of you being a star. It's ha...

    Painted red. Red jurisdiction. I have no diction. Word can't use me, Nor I them. We together mean nothing me and my words. Words are relative akin to my freedom. Freedom. Freedom. We've all dreamed of freedom. We've all stared longingly past the gates enclosed. The loc...

    I see glimmers of what my fate is. It astounds me how we all fall short of greatness. The trapping impatience remembering the past in fleeting traces. My mind races scrambling to attach names to faces. Anger blazes. Happiness grazes. Adventure takes us places. So up we go for it'...

    Addiction is a terrible thing. You stop and temptation unveils. You relapse and drown your conscience With guilt. I try to stop But every time I see my scars, It’s a reliving of every time I have ever felt; Abandoned Depressed Used Hateful Angry Terribly broken beyond repair. (etc.)...

    On so many occasions I have wondered: Whats wrong with me? Many nights I don't have an answer. Tonight I do: I'm all used up. An old bandage cast aside by those who will never heal. I shake and the emptiness inside me clangs like a ringing bell. ...

    It's best not to ask me what I’ve done. You're not gonna like the answer. I can recite it to you frontward backward up and down the mistakes I've made. But even closer to my heart: (searing it on burning coals) are the things done to me. Reminding me I am but an objec...

    Boil boil tick tock the clock toils. Draining. Refraining. Brain keep restraining. The young, the numb pour the rum. Dumb. Entertain, insane colliding trains, of thought. Or not. Who can know the things taught? What we've learned, has us burned and in turn we discern. W...
