counselor

Listen to my plight
Hear my cry
Then speak to me a word
That upon lie’s darkness
Shines truth’s light
Counselor, oracle, sage
Bestow upon me wisdom
My fears and insecurities assuage

banter

Teasing tongues
Wicked wordplay
Beguiling banter throughout the day
As night comes the words cease
longing lips continue the playful tete a tete

concert

Concert
two hearts in harmony
playing the music of love
rhythm meeting rhythm
in our passionate symphony

true

is it?
who can tell
we lie to ourselves
we lie to others
truth is convenient
lies expedient
yet we seek it
the true
the pure
it is medicine
it is cure
but so hard to swallow

loss

Loss is not a fading flower
Whose beauty has faded
Petals withered
Left for nothing but decay
Loss is a seed to be planted
In the soil of our heart
To grow new hope
Blooming to perfection

crumble

I may not have all the ingredients
To be your perfect pie
But I’ve got just enough
To be a decent crumble
So if you can be happy with something simple
Take a bite of me
I may not be much
But perhaps I can satisfy

pawn

I am a pawn in this game of love
a hostage of the heart
move me, use me, sacrifice me
i submit myself to you
whatever it takes to win the game
i am yours
i do not detest the role i play
i am a willing slave
into the war i happily go
to see love win the day

guidance

which way do I go
fork in the road
where do i look for guidance
i can reflect back on my experience
i might ask others who are further along than me
i might bend my knee and beseech the sky
i might study, i might plan
in the end does it matter?
for either way I choose
i may win something
i may lose
if fate brings us to our ultimate end
the path matters not
for paths are shifting sands
so i tred on with no fear
the end doesn’t need to be clear
just keep going

educated

educated
i’m smarter than you
my i.q. is paramount
it is my god
i am it’s lord
cerebral spirit
my trinity
I rule from on high
you mean nothing to me
a pawn, a tool,
an ant to my eye
insignificant
doesn’t matter if you live
probably better if you die
save the oxygen for the rest of us
after all, what can you add

repay

you loved my so deeply
you invested yourself in me
i failed, i betrayed
i through it all away
and now how do I repay
the debt i owe to you?
For I am indebted for more
than just that which you gave
I am on the hook for the damages
interest compiled at a rate beyond my means
there is no way i can make restitution
eternal indebtedness
best write me off as a bad investment

longing

Penetrated by insidious itch
Scratching cannot subdue
afflicting ache of emotional grief, debilitating
no painkiller can vanquish
Soul aflame, longing’s inferno
Unable to suppress the burn
Life threatened by love’s sickness
Perilously, for you I yearn

tricked

it’s halloween in my heart
i’ve been pranked
my soul has been tricked
she knocked on my door
i wasn’t prepared
I had nothing to give
so she pretended to love me
I was bewitched and beguiled
then she removed her mask
after i was hypnotized and smitten
exposing the lie she had hidden
her reality horrified
and all love within me died

territory

staking my claim
i have wandered into the wilderness of her heart
exploring the wild and wonderful domain
and all i have seen has compelled me
her spirit to obtain
I shall make her my country
I will defend her to my dying breath
From the bounty of her soul
I shall live and find my peace
No longer a restless wanderer
I have found my home

answer

answer me!
Do you love me?
Tell me now
In spite of everything
Throw away all pretenses
Strip your thoughts and emotions
Naked
Answer me!
Do you love me?
In spite of our differences
And the distance
And circumstances
Or logic
Answer me!
Do you love me?
In this universe of ours
There are so many questions
I seek only the answer to one
Do you love me?
Answer me!

everybody wants one
in fact, there is probably no greater desire
surpassing love
muting passion
rendering lust and desire impotent
for we are all plagued by
at least one question
something that haunts us
torments our soul
keeps us awake in the dark hours of the night
some unknown that causes us pain
a cross we bear
so heavy
if we could only have
an answer

outfit

first day of kindergarten
what shall I wear?
No mom, not the green shirt
I look like kermit the frog
First day of high school
critical that I look cool
First date
have to impress
Day one of my first real job
Is my tie straight
Looks like the apocalypse is upon us
are these the right boots for this ensemble
my appointment with death, imminent
what outfit should I wear
when the reaper appears
naked I came into the world
naked I shall go
after all, the skin I’m in
goes with anything.

stare

affix
lock
hold
my eyes adored her
i could not help but stare
i had never seen such a vision
gaze
peer
a dream
nothing i’d ever seen could compare
i’d like to meet her
but i was frozen
all i could do was
stare

intimidate

monster in my face
growling, hissing, snarling
fear encompassing me
want to turn and run away
need new eyes to truly see
what seems so terrifying
is a whole new world opening up to me
beyond the facade and drama of the demon
when the cloak is yanked away
an angel leading the way

ramp

duke boys
let the general fly
evel knievel
do or die
bmx
motocross
monster trucks
time to get high
accelerate
hit it hard
touch the sky
life
ramp it up

breakout

everyone wants to breakout
I want to break in
put my heart in solitary confinement
my soul jailed
away from the chaos of the world
where all factors in my life are known
three meals a day
cable tv
simple work
behind stone walls
i will keep the madness at bay
the cruelty of the world
will be far, far away
imprison me
throw away the key
I’ve been hurt too many times
the victim of so many emotional crimes

hydration

drink from the fountain of knowledge
frequently, deeply
quench your thirst for wisdom
hydrate your mind
let not your intellect become parched
dry and brittle
cracking from knowledge’s lack
wasting away
immerse your brain
in waters of wonder
think

tradition

why do we do what we do
tradition
do we give them any thought
value their substance
believe in them at all
is there benefit to holding onto the past
are there treasures hidden
in the rubble of the routine
is there harm in saying
this is how we’ve always done it
rituals for rituals sake
or are there more to simple customs
than meets the eye
is anything really what is seems
are we wise enough to plumb the depths

resolve

when the going gets tough
when the battle seems lost
when the taste of defeat begins to form on your tongue
when the storm rages
when despair, like a python, embraces
there are those who will not retreat
will not surrender
who will spew the acrid flavor of defeat from their mouths
they will stand in the face of the storm
fists raised in defiance
they are the perpetuators of the human race
they are resolve
though this human condition is fragile and temporal
we are because they do
for us they fight, these unheralded, everyday soldiers
upon their backs we are carried to each new day

dash

run, run
as fast as you can
we only have so much time
let’s make the dash
as beautiful as we can
live to the fullest
spend your time on the things you love
follow your heart
chase your dreams
time will disappear
it’s never as long as it seems.

rage

inferno
passions
exploding like a volcano
ripping through my soul
psychotic cyclone
tormenting tornado
no control
damaging people
wherever i go
my rage
not against any machine
my internal foe

boxing

not your normal defensive posture
back to the opponent
head scrunched into shoulders
shoulders curved forward to take the blows
his adversary jabbing
taunt after taunt
decimating derision
he continues to absorb the attack
Finally, enough!
He spins, screams
throwing a flurry up punches
connecting only with air
as air is the only thing behind him
the enemy is in his mind
the demon on his shoulder
spent from his assault
collapsing….panting
rising again….
head scrunched into shoulders
shoulders curved forward to take the blows
he knows they will come again

others

put them first
they are so strange
be kind to our fellow man
they are different avoid them
we are our brother’s keeper
go back to where you came from
boundaries
lines
always drawing, dividing
there are no others
just us

moving

emotions
furniture
exercise
commoninality
to move
be moved
but it all starts in the mind
cognition
need
all can be ignored
concepts denied
still we may remain
our choice
will

resignation

give up
why fight
I mean, it’s a losing battle
so, I’ll just sit here
whining, complaining
resignation
No!
can’t accept stagnation
won’t be comfortable with the status quo
i will rebel
my frustration will be my fuel
propelling me from my apathy
jettisoning me on my journey

centered

a little to the left
a bit to the right
no, no…..that’s not quite right
Trying to get life centered
centered? Balanced? Flat?
Are we aiming for zero
always striving to not get too high
attempting to not get too low
perhaps though we have it all wrong
maybe, just maybe
life is about the extremes
like a pulse on the monitor
peaks and valleys
anything but linear…..
