The New Normal

Help control the virus on our decent down the peak

Stay alert, the new normal, the keywords of the week


Anticipation grew around the map of our pathway out

confusing news filled us all with disappointing doubt


To mask or not to mask? now there lies a question

still debatable if they provide any medical protection


Return to work when able, keeping a two metre distan...

What is next?

What is next? I ask God

Tell me please because I feel so lost

Losing control of all that is around

What is next? I ask God

Then a small voice howls in the wind saying, "Worry about now!"

Smile, Breathe, Relax

Don't worry about the future nor the past

A wind blowing through a life

A disingenuous wild wind

that blows through

the withered and weathered

leaves of a life.

A life left puzzling over its roots,

and its new growth,

outstretched limbs bending in the

ever-present breeze,

bowing down to the mighty

twists of stormy blasts

gathering unseen and unheard

all around and about.

How do you know?

How do you know if time is being wasted?

Drifting so far away from the honesty that the honesty becomes a lie,

How do you know if it's what's meant to be, if im with you and he's not with me?

They say time you enjoy wasting, isn't wasted time,

But does that apply when you've got your enjoyment, and I've lost mine?


How do you know what's meant to be?

I'm with you, and he's no...

Ignorance is bliss

So I guess that they've imprisoned us into this predetermined preposition 

When the truth is there so blatantly but we can't help but not to listen 

Because ignorance is bliss so we'll stay blissfully unaware 

As to the GMO's in all our food and the geo engineering in the air 

I suppose we'll go organic and refuse the water from the tap 

What about the metals likened to a subtle che...

How can I tell her that I love her?

How can I show her my true feelings?

If the words “I Love You” are dwarfed compared to what I feel.

Not even all the jewelry and roses of the world could equal her beauty.


How can I describe to her?

That every time I see her my surroundings cancel out.

She is my center of attention,

That for her my heart aggressively pounds.

The music begins again.
You wallflowers who came
with the dance in mind
and empty hands to hold—
skulking along the fringe,
afraid to join in,
but more afraid to leave.
She comes.

You wither at her gaze,
hoping, not hoping
she is looking at you;
Would it mean more?
A joke, a fluke, a trick,
or perhaps a friend—
If you don’t see
will she leave?

Wallflower dancer
shaking and jiv...

The target is skewed by perception of



My fury is fused in some strange



Pull back..retreat..to a previous known point.


The thrust will be shown to be false


..or maybe not..

Stranger on the Bridge

I’m a stranger on the bridge
above the sleeping city
a sea of lights below

I’m a stranger on the bridge
so far from friends all gone
those faces I’ve been sailing from

I’m a stranger on the bridge
passed by cars of families
slipping back to glowing homes

I’m a stranger on the bridge
a road between these worlds
fleeing fast from helplessness

I’m a stranger on the bridge
no fami...

Along the long and winding road

You’ll reach a spot where paths will cross

There you know not where to go

For either leads to unfamiliar ground

You’ll never know where they may lead

Unless you choose to follow it

But know that you may never know

Where the other could have taken you.

Uncertainty is a burden,

Indecision is a hindrance,

Tell me all my options,

Fuck me with your influence.


I woke up late for life again,

I know what I want,

The easy way in,

The games have since began.


Will my life culminate besides,

Horchata or pinstripe suits and ties.

Progressive paralysis

The smite of real life

Crashing from the skies.

I became paralyzed,

Unable to progress.


I begged for the heaven sent,

One linguistic instrument.


The vibrant mind

Will not find time

To absorb line after line.


Exams are just observing me,

Seventeen and in nursery!

Unwelcome at university.

Judgement day arrives.


And then b...
