No, you don't owe them a thing
But should you offer anything
I pray it be kindness.
Saturday 19th November 2022 4:02 pm
But what is life without pain?
Where there is agony you find perseverance
And without that we couldn't know strength.
Tuesday 15th November 2022 5:39 pm
No. I don't have a lot.'
But I do have my soul
And that is not nothing
In fact it's quite something
Perhaps it is all I need
To wander through life
Exposing my heart
Instead of riches.
Sunday 6th November 2022 2:20 am
I tried to deprive myself of what I knew best in this world. In a way it began to feel like an addiction, no matter how hard I rejected the thought it was the only way for me to cope.
I'm a hopeless junkie desperate for an outlet wealthier than this.
Angry, I decided there was more to me than just self expression.
It didn't take long until I broke down.
Maybe that is my souls way of scream...
Sunday 30th October 2022 3:37 pm
I find myself staring across the same field,
The one that once connected me to you.
Bittersweet irony greets my cheek in a way that's almost funny to me.
I wasn't meaning to get lost in what used to be, I only needed a moment to myself
A brief second to reflect in the hallway of our past.
You don't belong in my heart
That's why I keep you in my thoughts.
Friday 28th October 2022 2:31 am
Bleed in my cup of ink?
Be the words I poetically disguise as false truth
Decorate my paper with your melancholic scent
It is in your agony I find delight
Though not for long
You abuse my creativity until a fire sends flames soaring across the sky.
Without your kiss engraved upon my lips there is nothing left to ignite.
I feel it now
My soul slowly begins t...
Monday 10th October 2022 4:00 am
The month made its way briskly, seeming as if there was hardly time to breathe
Everything kind of just evaporated out of my control, I'm left feeling like this life I live is no longer mine.
Whisked away without a thought, I fell into a routine that drained any ounce of joy I possessed from my soul
I am bone dry
I was not made for this kind of life
Yet day a...
Saturday 8th October 2022 5:57 pm
While the entirety of the world was in such a damn hurry she smoothed out the grass below her and fixated her gaze upon the most golden sky.
Wednesday 21st September 2022 12:16 am
I fell in love again
This body I posses
The passion of Picasso
And the insanity that was Van Gogh.
I felt the music again
Only to fall back into despair
But not as constant as it once was
There were countless days where I imagined a world without myself, this wasn't anything new yet it felt more real...more intense than before. All around me the hurt felt as ...
Wednesday 14th September 2022 6:25 pm
You and me
Meet on Thames street
A place existing only in our dreams
Two souls connected by a punk song.
On the verge of breaking down
Your touch remains a mystery
So I settle back and listen close to the sound of our little tune
Still Imagining I'm somewhere other than the current state of mind
Now joined by you in euphoric harmony
Our beings intertwine
Let's never leave this ho...
Thursday 8th September 2022 5:03 pm
It was those eyes.
He fit my gaze perfectly
Reading into my stare
He closed the space between us
All chaos slipped off somewhere beyond that moment
And 'oh my god' I thought
I couldn't keep my hands off him.
Monday 5th September 2022 8:46 pm
The rain sticks to my window
Falling slowly in perfect transparent lines
And I am a perfect example of irony as I stare blankly into oblivion
Thunder is sweet chaos in the background of my melancholy daydream
That my friend is the sound of golden imagery.
Tuesday 30th August 2022 3:18 pm
Heat waves and sensual conversation
That's what I remember when I finally awoke
Except I was alone with a familiar shock down my spine
And now that my eyes are open I'd rather be drifting off
I spent summer afternoons lost in a sleepy haze
Nothing felt...like anything
It was empty
Not even the music spoke anymore
I drowned myself in heavy angst but felt nothing
Friday 26th August 2022 4:50 pm
I whispered a thousand wishes into the wind
All of them involving you
As I read the words you so carefully craft I find it impossible not to swoon
Every line, no matter how short exhales vibrant colors before me
Fuck inspiration when your poetry is all that I need
Breathless beyond regaining composure
A small question dares to linger
Do I entertain your thoughts the way you do...
Tuesday 23rd August 2022 4:48 pm
Satisfaction runs deep
Like Non platonic energy
And it's making me go crazy
I'll pour another glass
Make that two
If my evening is spent holding back daring confessions
It's obvious to me I'll need a friend resting in both hands.
Wednesday 17th August 2022 2:22 am
I got lost in June
Submerging myself in song lyrics
And hiding behind cigarette smoke
A sadness swept over me
One like I'd never known
I loathed the universe for playing unfair
Angry tension devoured my inner thoughts and thus I discovered such a thing as writers block.
When the pen no longer fit my hand I gripped what was left of the sunset and refueled my soul.
Tuesday 16th August 2022 1:39 am
I was in a bad way the other morning.
I got lost in my head, thinking up horrible ideas that left me feeling ill.
What is it that makes us act so miserably?
Is it by nature?
The human condition is a crippling disease without a fix
The past will live to haunt you if you fail to make peace
I would know the pain of holding on better than anyone, because I myself cannot fathom the idea of let...
Sunday 24th April 2022 3:25 am
The darkness swallowed me once again
Holding me captive with no proof of an escape
The walls close in as I wrestle my fears
A part of me is starting to believe I belong here.
Friday 15th April 2022 9:04 pm
At last I see myself from a stronger point of view
As I look over my shoulder yesterday calls out once more
When the past begs for my attention
I remember not to dwell but to make peace
For these scars remind me that these are better days
Monday 11th April 2022 3:53 pm
I once heard a song about a wayward son
Who paved his path with words of self encouragement
It was then that he found what he sought with peace
Even through storms of emotion he had courage to chase his purpose
I too shall lay my weary head to rest
And wander without fear
Forget my tears, I won’t need them anymore
Soon I will be on my way.
Tuesday 5th April 2022 3:08 am
Tonight I’d like to write about how lovely it is to hear birds chirping
Or even newfound hope making its way from the distance
However, no matter how hard I try
I’m afraid I’d fail a thousand times
There’s a small voice inside spitting toxic rhymes
I may lack an abundance of qualities
What I ought to be is far from who I am
I underachieve where the average effortlessly exceeds...
Tuesday 29th March 2022 4:11 pm
Alone in my corner,
Where the quietude protects
I settled down for the evening
Ready for a poetic escape
Putting my pen to paper, I stopped
Then asked myself;
What does one do when
The tears won’t fall
The mouth won’t speak
The brain can’t think
And the heart won’t beat?
Friday 25th March 2022 5:48 pm
Tightly I cling to every word that I write
No space lies between the pen and myself
The contents spill across perfect lines
Shifting focus from the world around me to my interior universe
Seeing letters form words is a sweet release
It’s been said that I carry no emotion inside this small frame of mine
I’ve never heard such nonsense
Fools see only the surface, never behi...
Saturday 19th March 2022 1:33 am
It was the third time I’d switched records that day
The day I met him.
Nothing felt right
Until he caught my eye
He was a special kind of trouble
The kind that didn’t need changing.
I could tell from the exact moment he walked in
It was as if he wanted me to notice
The way he ran his fingers through his hair, looked around and picked up the same record I was playing...
Monday 14th March 2022 1:39 am
Music bled through cracked wallpaper
Sour notes and power chords sent vibrations through the floorboards
His calloused fingers brushed slowly over mine
Even in the screams of instrumental chaos we found silence
Those eyes I never saw again.
Thursday 10th March 2022 5:14 pm
You will survive
It’s only a matter of time
Until the sun rises
Peace isn’t so far
Nor hope out of reach
No mountain too high
Ocean too deep
For you are strong my friend
So swim to the shore
You've been here once
Done this before
Battleworn I'm sure
But nonetheless safe
Stand up, climb, be one with the waves
It seems imp...
Monday 7th March 2022 4:15 pm
Raindrops fell softly
Like soulful lyrics
For the first time in what must be a year I found comfort
It was beautiful
Just sitting there mesmerized by the sound
Hope was not lost like I once claimed it to be
In the distance were faint notes of a piano
Composed of a melody dainty and lonesome
Moments passed without my knowledge
I was lost somewhere between fiction an...
Tuesday 1st March 2022 3:02 pm
You find that thing
The one you can’t live without
You’d sell your soul for
You’d bleed and die for
And you chase it
With sweat in your eyes and dirt in your lungs
Follow it until your knees give out
Because where you land
Is exactly where you are meant to be.
Friday 25th February 2022 8:42 pm
If you look at all things through the eyes of an artist, you see everything has purpose and everything has beauty. Even people. Especially people.
Tuesday 22nd February 2022 7:37 pm
From the heart
Ink stained emotion
So I create
Art is for the soul
Is the only thing
Keeping me alive.
Saturday 19th February 2022 4:15 am
The way of the coward isn’t for the faint of heart
For this road is paved with miserable faces and shaky hands
If you wander far enough you may find yourself blinded by deception
Of course the pain endured is self inflicted
Whether the wound be gaping or completely numb, it was intentional.
Sing an ode to the misguided souls disguised as free birds
We are the stargazers, fal...
Friday 18th February 2022 4:05 am
I once fell down a rabbit hole I don’t recall the pleasure of meeting
I was taken by surprise
It was as if the earth tricked me and swallowed me whole
The faster I fell the less I became aware of my surroundings
All I could feel was the intense fear of oblivion
What lies below me?
How much further would I fall before I plummet to my death?
If I close my eyes will this al...
Thursday 10th February 2022 3:41 pm
You never desired to be here, yet somehow you find yourself walking down a blank hallway, following that blue line.
Your heart thumping anxiously in your chest as you realize you are lost.
You pace back and forth, studying the same floor until suddenly every tile becomes significant, you begin memorizing the image of each individual square,
the scuff marks
It all bec...
Tuesday 8th February 2022 2:57 am
Tucked behind a corner booth table I caught a glimpse of a lonely shadow lingering in a vacant corner. Immediately my attention was drawn to an unfamiliar face with a tortured sort of composure. Had I not found the courage to recite a friendly greeting an opportunity would have been missed.
I sat with my back against the wall, the taste of stale coffee on my tongue
My thoughts ran back and ...
Saturday 29th January 2022 11:51 pm
In your lifetime you may stumble across one who makes your soul ache and your heart crave
It’s a longing,
For something more than what this world has to offer.
You break a sweat fighting for a chance.
Man on a journey
Misunderstood by most
Tired and weary from the chase
She caught your eye now she’s got you by the tongue
You meditate in search for answers
Wednesday 19th January 2022 7:06 pm
Maybe once or twice I’d cross your mind tonight, and quite possibly you’d reminisce for the sake of our youthful past times.
Might it even arch your brow to wonder where I’m at now.
Remember when it was me you wanted to walk alongside you through troubled waters? In and out of love with you I fell, indecisively I fled despite your constant admiration for me. Truth is, I believed no matter ...
Monday 17th January 2022 6:57 pm
Heavy was her heart as it sat upon her sleeve
Just another casualty on display for those who dared to recite their condolences
Oh, but she continued her escapade
Refusing to allow the condition of her cardiac woes to keep away her passion
The wind called her name and like a wild card with no destination, she tossed herself into the storm
Saturday 15th January 2022 4:20 am
I'm deprived of the simplest form of living
The connection that comes from human interaction, simple conversation, lengthy chats.
I've been alone for too long
It seems I've numbed myself
My only friends are a whisper through broken speakers
I follow their words like I follow the sun
I've never been in love deeply enough to be consumed by the fire, but I imagi...
Tuesday 11th January 2022 3:14 am
Halfway through a cup of coffee she paused
who she is now is not who she once was
And what a shame that is.
Sunday 9th January 2022 1:15 am
There’s a little madness in us all
Many open the door to curiosity
Very few return
I myself am still wandering beneath the mushrooms which shade my head
The only way out is paved with bleeding souls
We are all just prisoners here, of our own device
Surviving off greed and drugs
Lost inside our own Hotel California
My own deception caught me by the throat and passed a b...
Monday 3rd January 2022 4:18 am
finally the Celtic fiddle sent waves of music into the atmosphere while spreading prosperity into the New Year.
Snow fell from the sky forming a white blanket upon the open field.
She knelt down slowly, gently pressing her palm into the cold, dense snow.
The cold made her feel powerful.
She took a handful of snow, lifting it to her face, admiring the faint sparkl...
