The Gambit


I Told Myself But Never Admitted To
What I Knew…..
Insinuations. 
And Yet There’s Still That Part Of Me
Waiting To Get Back Home, Back To My Room
And Say,
That Trip Took A Really Long Time,
Now….What Was I Doing?
How You Managed To Keep Us All Together
Without Figuring Me Out?
A Card Up His Sleeve, The Gambit Was Mine.
But I Can’t Seem To Turn It Off.
And I Can’t Explain The DejaVu.

Raven Girl


Long Story Short,
I’m Cornered.
Every Second I’m Haunted,
Gory With The Dead Of Night.
Recycle Myself,
Just Don’t Think Of Tomorrow.
And As About I Flail,
This Is My Fairytale.

Life seems Lifeless,
For The Dead Travel Fast.
I’m Catching My Breath,
Another Hopeless Romantic.
Somewhere In Between
Pop And Gothic Before,
Lost In Barcode.

An Undercurrent Of Remorse,
The Damned Are Too Bleak To Fade.
He’s Got The Talent, Now
Where Did I Put My Puppet Strings?
He’s Gonna Leave It All Up To The Studio.
Just Mouthing Words To Be Part of The Show.
Telling Lies To Stay In Tune.
Hundreds Lost And Thousands Doomed.
And Now He Can’t Even See Me.
Did You Notice, He Can’t See You Too?
If This Is The Life You Wanted,
Then Die.

To Travel Time


Secondhand Smoke On A Summer Night.
Again Now, I’m A Traveler Of Time.
Though What Was Mine Has Died
And What Has Mind Has Lied,
Forgotten Yet Still Inside,
Your World Suppresses Me Again.
Sometimes I Get That Taste…..
Like Time Travel On The Tip Of My Tongue,
Tastes Like Dirt.

A Reflection Within A Reflection


I Remember Never Wanting It To
End, Like Always,
Fear Of The Over.
Is It Nearly Almost Over?
It’s Like,
Every Time I Smile
I’m A Liar To Myself.
Like You’re Looking At Me……
Happy Or Guilty?
We Look….

Focus


But When We Zoom In
We Second Guess.
Could I Even Breath Through The Rest?
What’s That Stuff Floating In My Vodka?
Prince Charming Feeling Awkward?
That’s Two Or Three Times Bad for My Health.
That’s What They Say, When I’m By Myself.
Can You Bluff When You’re Dealing Hell?
I Got A Lighter, So I Might As Well.
I’m The Numbest I Ever Felt,
Bluffing My Way Through Hell.
Because I Share ...

The Last Buzz On Earth
Went Off Without A Hitch.
I Put On My Hat And Clean The House,
Finish That And Just Pace Around.
I’m Nocturnal,

Sounds Of Reminiscence
And Altogether Sigh.
We Try To Be Sure Of What Matters.
And If This Is What You’d Think Of Me-
I’m Dislocated Sympathy.
We Try To Be Sure Of What Matters,
And What Matters To The Mad?

Still Waiting For That Dog To Bark,
On The Verge Of A Different Day.
But Could I Stand On A Different Ground?
Could I Stand On A Different Ground?
Could I Stay In A Different Cage?
For Days I’m Running,
And Then I Step Out Of The Wheel.
Said We Knocked, But You Didn’t Hear Me.
Got A Mission And My Blood’s Boiling.

Kill Me Now


Every Day I Dodge A Bullet.
Every Day I Shoot Myself.
Every Day I’m Looking Inward.
Inside I Die As Well.
Death Like.
Spilling The Ink.
I’m Lost In Every Day.
I Think.........
Forget My Dreams And Sleep.
What Is Here, Un-Surrounds.
Kill Me Now.

What am I doing? Blurry lights glow before my eyes. Who am I? Should I check? Where am I? 11:11, the clock reads. Always 11:11. Oh, yes…… I am no one, at least for the night. Red, white and blue eyes reflect black at my soul. Time to roll, for the dead travel fast. All’s in black for the backwoods. Anticipation steals my heart in storms. Chaos is on the bound. Fortunate Son plays along to my midni...

But Did I Even Fall Asleep Last Night,
Or Have I Always Been Here?
Stood-Up Too Late To The Dark In Me.
Just Get Me Back To Where I Can Breath.

I Wanna Pick My Bones

Could You Find Reason
With What I’ve Done,
Even If I Hide The Truth?

Would You Believe
All I’ve Become
Is Everything I Wanted To?

A Couple Times
We’ve Grown-Up
And You’re The Only One I Wanted Too.

Forever Young

Grey Date


He Sits........
Haunted By A Trickster,
Up At Night With a Grey Date,
Steady Sipping That Elixir.
She Forgets, Haunted By A Name.
If There’s a Demon Stealing Time....
If There’s A Demon In My Eyes....
He’s Just Eluding Life With A Weak Kid.
We’ve Been Used Long Before Meeting You.
You Think It’s Me, I Want To Leave.....
And So Do You.
We’ve Been Wrong Long Before Believing You.

Grimacing


One More Week Gone In A Blink.
Stares Off Reflection…….
Am I Still The Same?
It Reflects The Grimacing.
I Think My Nightmares
Are Trying To Prepare Me.
Anticipating My Bones
Before They Mold,
One Day Wake-Up Old.
I’m A Week Today.
Never’s A Blink Away.
I Think In Nightmares……..
Am I Still The Sane?
It Reflects The Grimacing.

From Behind All The Shades Of Grey,

And I Don’t Know What To Say.
And Then Your Voice Is Only Mine.

C’Mon, Baby, Doubt Me,
I Cannot Live Without Me.
If That’s What Makes You Happy,
One Cannot Live Without Me.
And We’re Taking Turns Off The Road,
And Falling Back Into The Ghosts.
Drifting Back Off Of The Road.
Doubt Me And All I Know.
Maybe I’m Losing It,
But Maybe I’m Coming Around.
A Little Voice Is Singing It,
Don’t Hold Your Breath For Too Long.

A Toxic Turn Of Events
 That Set In Like Cement.
I Never See The Truth ‘Till I’m Cornered.
I’ve Never Seen The White Of Your Eyes.
Every Word She Spoke Was Important.
She’s Coming, I Know, In Good Time.

Where Do You Go 
When You Can’t Rest At Home?
My Indian Tricks Won’t Last For Long.
Seeing Ahead And Falling Behind.
In My Pace, I Know My Time.

Inside The Souls Are Inbred
And Masochism’s Our Religion Instead.
Suicidal In The Womb,
Cancerous In My Room.

The Dazed Drag By.
Another Drag,
The Days Push By.
We Could Wither And Die,
We’ve Been Dead All Our Life.
A Turn Of Phrase
And Your Turning In Your Grave.

A Wind Now,
The Time Has Come.
The Long Days
Are Mine To Own.
A Last Wink,
We’re Taking Cover.
Impending Doom
Like No Other.
She Made The Wish
Upon A Flower.
‘Cuz I’ve Been The Shadow

The Look Of Sadness
When Bad Things Happen,
The Missing Mourner,
The Cheapest Casket,
The Wrong Move
When Things Are Drastic,
Melan Choly Waves,

From the Edges


Nostalgia,
it can rip your heart away.
Nostalgia,
it points the way to your grave.
Every lie I ever told was true,
like all the smiles I fake for you.
Cemented guilt,
my layers of achievements’ truth.

Paranoia,
it puts the blood upon your mouth.
Paranoia,
it’s washed upon the ground.
Creases cut into a romantic brain.
We spiral down.
We asphyxiate.
Romanticize a prayer

In The Shoe

Privacy’s Temporary. 
It’s Only A Matter Of Time
‘Till The Darkness Shines,
And Now In Here 
It Goes Away Again.
If All Is Well
That Ends Well
Then All Is Not Well.
It’s A Pirates' Life For Me
When Riddled 
One More Than Three.
Unto This,
Death Looks So Unnatural.

Under the Ladder


I Don’t Even Have To Hope You Go To Hell.
With That Evil Grin
Come Lurking Around The Corner.
And I Don’t Feel The Need To
Sell Myself To You.
Turning On The Screw.
So I’m Just.
And Just Keep On Writing
Underneath The Ladder.
Old Timer, Turn The Volume Down.
Pages Turn, Yet Here I Burn.
Never One To Be Part Of This World.

Darker Side of Reason

Can You,
Wanna  Move  Me?
It’s Hot In The House
But We Still Got Sound
And Don’t Live For Tomorrow.

We Stood There Watching
Too Hot To Move,
But I Had To.

I’m Back To The Woods.

We’re All In Dire Need.
