When I am faced with a multi-faceted feeling, I lose myself in a sea of masks. The sea thrashes against my psyche, gaining entrance to my lighthouse of emotions. I grew up in a small town in Idaho, and my main concern was devising a way to get away from po-dunk heaven. I made the escape, joined the Army, left the Army, and currently live in Hawaii. Now almost 10 years later, I hear my home calling my name. My minds eye can see the waves of wheat and the blanket of snow covering the trees. The birdsong of the early morning reaches my ears over thousands of miles. I don't know if I'll ever truly be "back", but I miss it.


Here I lay Listening to silence My mind starts to wander Diving into the abyss Swimming through an ocean Of thoughts and voices What I think Happens What I see Happens It's all real So when I say My brain is dangerous Don't think I'm lying What's coming for me May come for you
