My Abyss - A Blackhole

Energy can neither be created nor destroyed - light can travel through galaxies and galaxies is what is seen because of the light.  Even a black hole has light about it, it is that light that exhibits a beauty like no other.  This beauty and darkness is what draws people to it - in to it.

As the worlds, and stars and galaxies rotate around and look upon the blackhole they fantasize what could b...

Energy

Energy can neither be created nor destroyed - so where does this energy we feel come from?

Is it an energy that has been stored for lifetimes just waiting for us to release it?

How is the light generated that is seen in ones eyes?

None of this sounds possible?  I have been .................................................

Are we just young and naive? Or we old and stupid forgetting mor...

Battles Wars Crusades

Life is not a fight, treat it like one and you will fail

Life is not a battle, there are too many enemies

Life is not a war because a war consists of fights and battles with no possible winner

Life is a crusade - a crusade cant be won just experienced.  We go through this crusade winning losing loving and hating.  It is all about the experiences and being able to learn and grow and teachi...

You decide

WOW

SPEECHLESS

UNSINKABLE 

LIFE IS NOT A BATTLE- NOT EVEN A WAR BUT A CURSADE

For every darkness there is s light 

For every death a new life

For every winter a spring

And 

Every night has a sun 

 

This fucked up world is nothing but contradictions, mysteries, and lost souls.  Then out of nowhere comes a four leave clover, a piece of blue glass and a painted sky to re...

Enough

I have decided enough is enough

i have seen the glass bottom so many times and the view is so distorted that life means nothing.

Life is what we make it - so the next life will be better

The next life will be worse

The next life is just that the next one.

 

I am so far from home that I do not think I will ever return.  

My light is lost, it is shining on those that need it mor...

True love

What is true love?

True love does not involve vows 

True love does not mean living together 

True love is out of the control of society 

True is love is what the heart wants...and it does not give two shits what we think or what we want.

True is love has no beginning and no end 

True love is felt and not thought 

True love is ... well ... true and honest and un biased 

True...

Ticking clock

The clock keeps Ticking

The earth keeps spinning - circling the sun

Things are left undone.

The truth of life,

The madness of my mind.

One in the same ...

Life without a name.

Thunder without rain

Love and pain

No one gains.

IT is all a game!

Yesterday

Today's world is not that is yesterday; yesterday you were here and now you are not.  The world is a little darker for me but because of you others will have a brighter world through me.

Milking ducks

Does anyone understand me?

Does anyone really care?

All I want is to live my life to the fullest 

All people want to do is hold me back and pen me up.

Why can't I just do what I want?

Why won't they support me?

All I want to do help.people...give them what I didn't have for so long and don't again.

Thoughts and words, support and concern, love and support ... but what do I kno...

You

All  have is you ...

No protection... no place to hide ...

Just you to save me... just you to protect me.

I ask for help without speaking ... 

You give help without offering...

Without you I am.lost ... with you I am complete...

If love is the strongest word it better start working out... this is more than love ..

Lost

You are like my map and compass, my GPS, even if I don't know the route I can see what is out there and I am no longer lost.

Silence

If my silence left you questioning know I am always talking to you...

If my absence left you wanting know I was holding you tight...

If my lack of action caused you to question ....

The answer is I do love you and always will ....

Simple

Life's simple truth - 

There is nothing simple.

 

How can I understand that?

You don't.

 

How do I trust you?

You can't.

 

How can I love you then?

You shouldn't.

 

Why should I listen?

You won't.

 

I want to understand dut don't...

That's because nothing is simple and the truth to life is simplicity!

Matters

What matters in this life changes literally from day to day, minute to minute 

The bottom of a glass is peaceful

Don't judge and don't ask questions...

 

Walk in my shoes then tell me how to live my life..not that I would listen anyway.

I do the best I can .. nothing more nothing less....

Thank you to those who care and fuck those who don't...

Broken afraid

Broken and afraid

Sad and alone 

I have upset my soul mate 

I have disappointed and failed...yet again

Guess old habits die hard...

 

Maybe I should have stayed in my cave

Help more

So many questions 

So many what if's

If yes then no

If no then yes 

They mount, I hurt

They mount, you hurt

I'll run away that will work ... no one will miss me

The sun still rises ... the rain still falls 

The darkness hides all.

The bottom of my glass hides the answers 

The night is restless 

The moon shines bright ... but the path is hidden

The desire is real...

What is in a name

What is in a name.

What value does it hold?

Can I change my name...would anyone care?

Can't I chose who I am and what I will be?

Why do people focus on where they came from... our past makes in part who we are but WE create the final version?  What will yours look like?

If I change my name will it change me?

After all this craziness of life is over how will you be remembered... w...

To world knows nothing

The world knows nothing... 

You look but dont see

Listen but not hear

Touch but  not feel 

Eat and never taste 

 

We have only a small number of chances to see the moon...don't waste them

We are but one salt and banana dance away from the light ... 

Enjoy the dance and embrace the light 

For if there is no tomorrow can you say you danced in the rain?

Or stared at the ...

Free thoughts

"Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose" love that song... 

But what is freedom and what is the cost?

Is there a price...our continued nations freedom was and is paid in blood.

Our personal freedoms wereally paid at others expenses again in blood.

I hold these freedoms near and dear....

What is the price of our emotional and psychological freedom?

F?#k It

'It don't mean nothin'

This life is full of sick.and twisted  lessons 

This life can go get fucked 

This life is someone's idea of a joke

I cant understand it and the list of.weird shit 

Would make you commitment me.

 

What I know is this love is a simple thought for simple people

Love is something but not everything 

People love each other, awesome; bit are they in love...

Those Hands part 2

Whether covered in paint 

or covered in blood 

They are filled with love.

Passion of saint

Gentle and strong 

Those Hands will challenge the wrong

And change the song.

Those Hands

**picture missing**

 

These hands give testament to true work ethic.

 

These hands have deliver life.

 

These hands heal and save life

 

These hands guide and protect

 

These hands provide.

 

When you touch these gentle hands you can feel the energy, the love, passion and compassion connected with them.

 

These hands have worked and cared and loved in ways...

The Storm

The cold wind blows the leaves from the trees

The dark clouds roll in and hide the sun

The animals seek shelter as they sense the storm approaches 

The angles laugh as they watch...

If only these mere mortals only knew

This storm is not one to hide from it should be embraced 

As the it will bring change with its devastation 

Everyone and everything is scared ...but the rebuild...

Regret not

The unsmoked cigarette 
The unfinished drink
The envelopes not opened 
The words never said 

The mountains never climbed 
The dance card never still has
The ice cream yet to be enjoyed 
The treasures yet to be discovered

Regret not ...

Life ... real or imagined

If this life is real or fake I don't care if am glad you are in it 

If tomorrow never comes I know I have lived and loved like no other 

If I never see the sun I will feel the warmth because of you

If the rain never falls my garden will always grow because of your love

If my heart will never be lost because you found it 

My path will always be illuminated because of your light

Deafening silence

The silence is Deafening 

The cold reality of selfishness screams like a tornado siren

The reality of the glass bottom is crystal clear....

My father was right all along...

It makes so much sense I am sick...

Apologies can never be made... my questions never answered in this life.

I have no one to talk to you or confide in ...

My heroes have gone... I am now the hero and I am ...

The light is bright, without end....

Songs and memories

The song plays but the words are not heard, 

They're lived.

The words are the catalyst evoking emotions,

For some the song is the want of today

WhIle others remember days ago.

But what happens when that one song takes your breath away.

When that song tells a story only 2 know...

The rhythm of crickets and frogs is no match for the rhythm of the heart beat and the harmony of br...

The wish

I wish I had some answers 

I wish I knew the questions 

All I know is the altered world we see through the bottom of a glass,

Is not understood by the hearts of children or the souls of old men.

Nothing can stay forever.... well almost nothing except for the light ....

Which will last lifetimes

So.many thoughts .... so.much pain

So.many memories ... so.much guilt 

It is only when they are gone that we realize what is missing

Glass bottom

Nope not a glass bottom boat the bottom of a glass 

The best part of the bottom of the glass --

The altered world you see....

You can see the world as you wish it was

You see the world you long to have 

The memories of days gone by

the numbness of reality

The lie

Is it true that we all lie?

We lie to ourselves 

We lie to each other 

We hide our trueselves 

Is it for self preservation...for the preservation of others 

Is it because we are running away or running towards the truth

We all have a poison ... we all have a crutch

Some look in the bottom of a glass or bottle

Some at the price of a needle 

Others use ancient stretching o...

Words, Beer and Matches

After the third round I strike a match and watch it burn till my fingers burn

After the fourth round I strike a match and watch it burn ... the flame fades and the smoke lingers just a little to long and off on an adventure I go with 20 beers in tow

The pen is moving, words appearing on the page ...but what do they mean ... why do they have to mean anything

I turn the page and start a new...

Restless

Yet another restless sleepless night ....

I sit and listen to the twirling of the ceiling fan ... round and round never stopping ... never quiting 

I ponder the day ... I ponder tomorrow ... I ponder yesterday looking for answers that allude me ... seeking questions to the answers that I possess 

I ask have I been a good man ... have I done right by so many ... will anyone care when I am ...

New beginnings

The first day of the rest of my life has started ..it is all about change

I sat and listened...I answered truthfully holding little back because of my grandfather...because of my father ...because of my adopted father 

I have taken a litle of them all and made it me...they are who I am...and we will conquer....our presence will be known

The Lancashire name will be remembered for the right...

Change

The only guarantee in life is that it will change 

The page was not turned and the book was not shut...the book was slammed shut and thrown out the window

They think they have broken me ... it is only change 

They think they have won ... no only change 

They think they are in charge... no only change 

I have started a new volume of my life and it is on their dime

The window

As I look out the window everything seems dead...cold and lifeless

I don't understand what has happened....everything was great

I call out and the darkness shallows my cries like a black hole devouring the light

The only echo is that of an icy wind cutting like a knife 

I wonder has everything been swallowed up and devastated...

Is there nothing left in this world.... all the happin...

I can not ...

My thoughts flow and you may call those collection of words anything you like.

I write as I think

I write as I feel

I don't like punctuation not because of poor instructure oh NO they all tried
