Here We Go Again

Here we go again No pencil to paper But flesh to screen Letting out streams of unbroken consciousness In no new way then what was done before But the writing gives no way to myself My scrawl of ink scratching across some old notepad, no – Instead across tepid electronic keyboard And cold glass screen […]

Reception in the Middle of Nowhere

(watchtower) Is she always there Standing over me Watching as the seasons change Over some sleepy, wondering sea Across her face and beneath her eyes Is always the same wistful gaze Reflections floating like young waves Crashing just to show their size The air gets dry As the music grows dreamy Synth sounds and electric […]

Tomorrow to Come

(summer soliloquy) Who could tell Who could wonder why When summer passes through me Like tears on hazy honey eyes When it floats away, like those dreams on the big open sea And life is simply another Lonely menagerie Things will never be the same As they were before Quiet songs on the record player […]

What’s Left of What Was Said

I sit beside the crowds of people I see everyday Yet cannot bring myself to recognize I don’t understand a single word they say But Lord, how I try Perching in the rafters above the rumble of empty words Faces that don’t mean a thing to me I look over the scape and I don’t […]

Shattered Glass

The wind howls louder still Reaching for the empty heart Of someone who never got their fill Of a life that has yet to start All of those hopeful flames Dancing in such a cold, dark room Ever so reluctant to respond to the change We forget that we aren’t the same Despite our matching […]

Bloom

From beyond the nights And into my sleeping head Working for that sign of light To finally pull me from my bed A dance of moving parts and pieces Gears twisting in their place Fingers running over the creases Left behind in the sheets For behind my eyes – I no longer see your face […]

Rubble (Left in October)

I once knew you But don’t remind me Like the rubble of the car wreck That still sits close to me And the oxygenated air That still makes me dizzy I don’t want to think about what doesn’t make me forget An orange atmosphere with nothing left And voices in the background to remind me […]

There is Nothing Here

There is nothing here Nothing for you Nothing for me City of broken bones and worn down streets Fields of nothing and people with nothing who want nothing To change in their lives Content with the same old ways And constant stream of lies There is nothing here for you Doors stay locked until they […]

Dark Skies

I want to know Why the light around us always seems fleeting With every second I stand alone with you I just want to see Why there’s nothing here for me And all that’s left is all I know Two feet standing on the ground, and the pitter patter Of the rain’s melodic fall Drown […]

Over the Shore

Everyday I hear the story that you loved me like I loved you everyday just another story of what’s to come next and what was before me trying to keep my head above water while the storm rages on I see the misguided direction all around as I try to walk before I crawl but […]
