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,

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.

Happy Or Guilty?

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.

On The Verge Of A Different Day.

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.

Forget My Dreams And Sleep.
What Is Here, Un-Surrounds.

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.

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.

One More Week Gone In A Blink.
Stares Off Reflection…….
Am I Still The Same?
It Reflects The Grimacing.
I Think My Nightmares

Anticipating My Bones

One Day Wake-Up Old.
I’m A Week Today.

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.

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.

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

Then All Is Not Well.
It’s A Pirates' Life For Me
When Riddled 
One More Than Three.
Unto This,
Death Looks So Unnatural.

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.

Blew Away


Blew Me Away……You Drew Me Away.
The Glass Shingles 
Clatter In The Storm.
I’m Not What I Seem.
I’m Not A Mystery.
I’m Understandable
 And I’m Undistorted In Light.

Blew Me Away……You Flew Me Today.
The Brass Doorway 
Leads To My Leaves.
Now I’m What I Sing.
Predictable In A Dream.
No Wonder Meant In My Feet.
I Am Defeat.

So, I’ll Just Finish My Drink
 And Be On My Way.
I’d Love To Weather But I Can Not Stay.
At Least She’ll Wonder 
What Might Have Been,
Instead Of Knowing How Bad It Is.
I Can Never Sleep
 Even Though She’s Always Still.
I Swear To God I’m Ready 
Though My Eyes Lie Still.
You’re New…………………
An Old Soul………
I’ll Return.
 Got No Time At All.
Without A Whisper.
 Without A Care.

Every time I Come To Thee……..
I’m Falling In Love With The Devil
Every Time I Come To Thee.

Too Insecure, I’m Never Sure.

Where The Devil’s Health
Has No Effect Upon My Shell.
