    I know that I will forever recall That patter of paws in the hall, The clicking of nails on the wood, The jingle of his bell; Knowing that the day would be good And all would end well For in those big, sad brown eyes The roots of joy were easy to recognize ...

    The barn house is open And the spirits are alive Oh come and dine with us On this night before we die   We will tell tales from our youth And recreate the past Sing tunes of great joy And make the night last   Temperance will be lifted Wit...

    I am all alone. The terrible realization came to me like a slap across the face one February morning in my junior year of high school. I sat, day dreaming in AP English class when the soul crushing epiphany pierced me like a bullet in the back of my brain. Listening to my teacher drone on and on ...

    Light has gone But I am now free Your tangled wires have been cut For so long I tussled within them Kicking and biting at the strings that bind For so long you only laughed But if the fire in my eye shall abate Allow an immense loathing to replace it Because I now know love to be a curse...

    They say “you’re literally so beautiful” And I say, “No, you’re not” But make no mistake, You are beautiful nonetheless. You’re theoretically so beautiful, Metaphorically so beautiful, Figuratively, mysteriously and spiritually so beautiful. Yet, you are not "literal...

    Here’s to another Valentine’s Day alone, Surrounded by affection, but receiving none. Feeling like a stoic bag of blood and bone, While the luckier ones are out having fun. So I stare out the window on the late winter’s day, As snow gently drifts down from the sky. I wonder what it wil...

    As children we all once learned to walk, Tripping and stumbling over our infinitesimal feet, Then we grew up to run against others and the clock, Through the bitter cold and the scorching heat But what is to be done when the race is run, And the moment slowly drifts on into the past? Shall w...

    The man waits by the window day after day, Death creeps closer and closer to get his way. So his family and lovers get down on their knees and pray, For a little cure or hope to dilute their dismay. Tears stream down their mournful faces; Reflecting on the joyous times, people and places, In...

    We gaze upon these stars tonight, Facing up on the night time sky, Anxious for the near future in sight, But cherishing every second as it drifts by Darkness hides us from our spurious lives, Since the long gone setting of the sun Our nocturnal spirits begin to thrive; For, the day has grow...

    I still don’t know why she had to die, I still don’t know why I did not cry Why do I long for someone that I hardly knew? Why do others offer tears and sympathy too? Everyone says that life has been so hard on me, Yet, it has been all that I have wanted it to be But they only wept at...

    On Sunday mornings when the world is asleep, We hack away on the promises we mean to keep. When the summer sun sets in the distant west, We are tired, aching, and drenched in sweat. Yet, the painful blisters on our toes and heels Cannot touch our fervent minds or our hearts of steel That...

    Florida has not always been as it is today. Back when I lived there in the early nineteen sixties, it was much less urban. Native Floridians still thrived, while today you probably would need to search through a plethora of tourists to find someone who actually holds residence there. I would not kno...

    She said she would never forget I was foolish enough to believe Tricked into believing that anyone would love me without regret And that my actions would plant a life changing seed So I sit alone on this porch swing in the summer heat A glass of lemonade by my side I ponder the polyatomic r...

    I have climbed the tallest towers, In your fair castle which I have journeyed so far to see, With my own eyes blinded by sweet beauty and precious power, I use my heart to realize bitter reality. I have learned to cry long ago, But today I find my eyes dry, The pain only lashes out in the so...

    Darkness paints this earth and sky black, Empty in all corners of this sea, Alone and imprisoned with my skull cracked, This is where you will find me. An ethical dilemma and an ignorant mind, Finds himself traveling a dark road, But do not pity these events which I describe, For I have mad...

    The side of these mountains proves heavy and barren And I pray for some sort of relief from him One idea keeps me going Despite all blood,aches and original sin A raging memory spawns in my heart My soul enraptured with emotion I recall your face from worlds apart And remind myself of my de...
