Tucked in the shadows of some apartment complex on Baymeadows that consumes itself with tonight in order to forget about their tomorrow’s. I of course are one of these blokes, that tends at the shit hole bar that serves all of these folks. Happy or content, I’m not sure I know I know the difference. See I was talking to Jeff at the bar who made me think about what I’m missing. Surely I was made fo...

I’ve loved before, the foo’s past drew
But never quite this much
I’ve loved in desperation
With cries of passion and nights of anything but
I’ve loved blindly, those undeserving all while eyes wide shut
I’ve loved so hard and cried so long for loving those that watched me hurt.
Risked so much and hung on way too long
Because that’s what a...

Hand in hand
Though only gripping yours
And your grip counting twice
The two of us holding on
And all the lonely bastards in between and behind
Together we revel in sadness
Reading in the lines
Through silent whispers that scream for lonely masters
Gripping tighter to your hand
The only thing worse than the darkness of lonely is feeling it alone

A letter to my ex
The one that meant the most
This isn’t a passive aggressive passage that showcases what you lost
I’m not here to “thank you” for all the shit you’ve done because it “taught me to be strong” no need to block the jabs you thought that I’d give out.
I’m here to say I love you. And I’m not bitter about the past.
Hard to believe I’m sure without fearing what comes ne...

Left alone with the demons that my vices taunt
Sometimes I lay wake at night waiting for them surfaces
When they don’t show up on time is when I get nervous
They must be planning something special for the girl with no life convincing herself she has purpose.
Stockhome to the burdens I was assigned
A long long time ago when my life wasn’t mine
Chained in my head begging to bre...

And here it is I sit, alone again I’ll admit.
Pulled over before my stop
Trying to convince my thumbs to jot down
What my mouth couldn’t get
Solitude has struck me cold to many times for me count
The nights where I beg for someone in this place I’m in to know who I am without me helping them out
And deeming them too blind to figure me out.
So by myself I sit, with all the...

My heart it breaks
Never knowing what to say
Fearing that the day I do the moment that’s to late
I guess I need to explain.
See I’m like you, we feel just the same.
You call me to talk
But you’ll never listen
You must feel that I’m like the rest of them and anything I say to you is nothing but obligatory words I’d share with anyone if it wasn’t you.
Do you not remember...

Drowning in a life that wasn’t supposed to be this bad
Dreaming of dream where these trials seem worth it
A morning painted in gold the day that my entire life becomes a memory that I’ve told
Knowing the distance quickly drifts away further from the time I convinced myself to stay
Coddling my fears of never getting out
Remembering the days I counted the years till I...
