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...

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

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.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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.

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...

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...

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...

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 ...

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 ...

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...

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...

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...
