TODAY

TODAY

time to face
the truth
what we'd
been through
always something
going on
dramatics
no calm
together for
so long
couldn't see
did me wrong
followed a
crooked path
lifetime
getting back
only
friend
painful
end
had to
let go
of what
i know
holding onto
loss
nothing but
a cost
only way to
break free
built a bridge
over me
no longer
be
wallowing
in misery

TRUCE

TRUCE

saw you
standing there
put you in
the crosshair
had so
much fun
now feeling
under the gun
went from
once upon a time
to drawing
hostile lines
why do
we fight
when we're on
the same side
looked to
you
to help me
soldier through
slept below
the sky
now it's a field
of mines
walk on
my toes
so one
won't explode
wake up
rattled
fatigued from
the battles
at the

NEVER ALONE

NEVER ALONE

shoulders
round
from being
put down
laughed
too loud
clown
in the
crowd
circle in
a square
didn't fit in
anywhere
put on
game face
slowly
erased
self
conscious
shallow
pompous
shut
mouth
kept nose
out
please...please
no one
notice me
name
mistaken
shunned
forsaken
yearned for
a home
found
a soul
now have
both
never alone
closet full
of ghosts

NEW MENU

NEW MENU

shipped out
too soon
under a
bad moon
cross bones
and skulls
damaged
hull
force of
a typhoon
total
ruin
trawled through
hell
shocked from
shells
into the
depths
permanent
sunset
lead filled
pockets
rudderless
stars in
sky
only
guide
S.O.S.
sent
saved own self

THE JOURNEY

THE JOURNEY

don't receive what
you expect
when things
are less
than perfect
give up
hope
if unreached
is a goal
no point
it seems
when unrealized
are dreams
won't even
try
if no chance
for first prize
fill with
doubt
maybe even
pout
when the imagined
doesn't work out
if focused on the end
not the means
be missing out
on the journey
people you
may meet
miss the
surpri...

I LAND

I LAND

no
captain
no
direction
in a
wave
no
break
had no
flow
didn't
know
which way
to go
life passing
by
ship in
the night
running out
of steam
swimming against
the stream
hook...line
sinker
old hurts
linger
more the
angst
further i
sank
thoughts an
undertow
dragging me
below
anchored by
ghosts
wallowed
no
coast
nothing in
sight
no house
with a light

CURRENT

CURRENT

all
consumed
with what they
put you through
no longer
in your life
with them
you still fight
if you saw
them today
go over what
you would say
in your mind
looping narrative
wasting time
cuz you can't forgive
so you exist
instead of live
caught up in
emotions and thoughts
of those with
whom you've fought
role play
with yourself
do this or that
if you were someone e...

BEEN HURT TOO

BEEN HURT TOO

think you're the only one
it isn't true
know you hurt
been hurt too
every one of us
have things we go through
on the edge
hammer to a sledge
dig deep
when the climb is steep
may be frightened to the bone
but you're not alone
can honestly say
i've faced dark days
some strife in your life
ahead are better times
keep up the fight
soon see the light
gotta purge the mad

ISN'T GOODBYE

ISN'T GOODBYE

piece of
me dies
seeing
you cry
cannot
hide
tried
and
tried
don't want you
to hurt
from my
words
tears me
apart
breaking
your heart
so many
reasons why
can't keep
up the lies
can hardly
breathe
gotta break
free
you didn't
see
i had bigger
dreams
smiling
phony
no longer

loved me

YOURS TO SEIZE

YOURS TO SEIZE

take bull by
the horns
grow roses
without thorns
half full
is your glass
pure gold
out of brass
fine wine
from tap wtaer
five star meal
using fodder
diamond from
charcoal
solid ground
of a sink hole
one line
into a book
big fish
without a hook
shower in pennies
under the rain
full crop from
single grain
seperate wheat
from chaff
always get
last laugh

IN THE MOURNING

IN THE MOURNING

grief
and pain
one in
same
overwhelming
crushes
in waves
it rushes
knocked
off feet
left
empty
can't
concentrate
thoughts of
destiny...fate
asking
why
in between
cries
try to move
forward
don't wanna
face tomorrow
carry the
weight
unspoken words
too late
grateful
fulfilled
yet sadder
still
pacing
caged
in enters
rage
aching
heart

SPACE LEFT BEHIND

SPACE LEFT BEHIND

see you
in dreams
smiling
at me
still feel
you breathe
so close but
out of reach
things left
unsaid
repeat in
my head
what could
i say
to ease
the pain
couldn't find
the words
to heal
the hurt
when you
were here
slowly
disappeared
barely see
your face
vanished without
a trace
miss you
everyday
that you've
been away
silence
never ends
like an

BAIL PAID

BAIL PAID

shackled
to a
capsule
solitary
confined
for what's
behind
living
hell
like a
six foot cell
back and forth
pace
in a nowhere
race
a fraud
a fake
turn the phony
into bank
remove the
chains
write the
pain
into
play
expose
the
pose
mine pure
gold
get early
parole
from the
hole
bottom
scrapes
a great
escape
make an
earn
from the

BOUNTY

BOUNTY

went on
a quest
for a
treasure chest
knew there
had to be
one out there
for me
wished for
fame
all would know
my name
from a chalice
i would sip
and be
diamond dripped
have
money
beyond
belief
ride in a
limousine
i would be
the scene
toasted as
queen
crazy myself
i almost drove
searching for a
jewel filled trove
imagine my surprise
when i found the key

WORDS

WORDS

oh yes
i love words
written...spoken
heard
don't know prose
from verse
phonetically
cursed
but from
time to time
write such a
good line
blow my
own mind
yes i love
semantics
wax poetic
and pedantic
words shallow
and deep
flowing river
trickling creek
metaphors
rhymes and puns
see how
they're strung
linked
expression
diamonds
and gems
on paper
from pen

BEST SELLER

BEST SELLER

flickering words
at night
like firefly's
light
gently
nudging
me
vanishing
suddenly
ingenious
flash
just beyond
my grasp
would create
magic
if i could
grab it
thoughts
elusive
as liquid
through a sieve
forming
to hide
in the corners
of my mind
inside me
resides
a Pulitzer
prize
an exceptional
essay
a brilliant
array
of poems
lines
words
and rhymes

LITTLE OFF KEY

LITTLE OFF KEY

little off
key
might be
a
freak
like others
i don't talk
never belonged
to a flock
speak a
bit loud
feel isolated in
a crowd
can't stay
calm
when something's
going on
awkward
afraid
gonna make
a mistake
look like
a fool
trying to
keep cool
arrive in
casual wear
at black tie
affairs
don't possess
social grace
end up
losing face
topics i
choose

TIME TO EXIT

TIME TO EXIT

eyes
that
hypnotize
couldn't be
strong
wasn't
long
bfore i
fell
under
your spell
a touch
like voodoo
hard time
escaping you
magic at
first
uncovered
the curse
your
wizardry
was lost
on me
home we
made
just a trick
you played
nothing but
an illusion
that had me
in confusion
when the
curtain closed
went from
prince to toad
putting on
 a show
was y...

NOT GONNA FOLD

NOT GONNA FOLD

up...up...up
trampoline
can't feel
my feet
under me
defying laws
of gravity
rose colored
glass
got me
kickin ass
don't look
before i leap
think before
i speak
gonna do what
i please
no ceiling
or floors
that's what walls
are for
if ignorance
is bliss
i'm giddy
with it
yes i
might slip
don't give
a flip
rather rely
on tarot cards
than not follow
