    I’m in warrior mode
    having gone more than two months
    without a day off
    without reprieve.
    Most weeks I only sleep six hours a night
    and I trudge forward
    with resolve sharper than I ever knew
    prior to this two month deluge.
    This is not a poem.
    This is my awe on the page,
    an ink bottle tipped over,
    with its contents finding solace on the page.

    touting her corpse, a tree,
    hung in the town square
    where folk, witness lay,
    to a serene holiday scene
    in tribute of Wotan’s day!
    oblivious of her torturous demise

    Daily dreams remind me of the absence of heart and mind
    accompanying those of no inner intent
    as they babble on in talks of turns
    and bumble down the road to and from the bar.
    Unconsciousness calls! Quick! Drink to reply!

    I pass some spirit zombies on my way into the world,
    staying up late enough to see my own ghosts,
    talk to my own shadow.

    At the end of the day
    with an already full shame tank
    I listen to the weathered words
    of a divine inner hatred
    for the freedom you never had
    and are intent to deny me
    as you remove my right
    to celebrate myself
    and discipline myself.

    Cry for what you want
    And it will come.

    Grieving is the way out
    and the way in.

    Bureaucratic little bastards
    teeth gnashing, gnawing into the air, latching onto anything that willy allow, even for the slightest amount of time, the opportunity to feast right through flesh till bones do crack and splinter,

    revealing that secretive marrow I held so dear.

    Before I knew it to be cancerous,

    feeding them. Sustaining…[Read more]

    The world is so full of gray.

    My heart breaks when I’m around those who don’t see it, can’t feel it, can’t hear it, can’t touch it.

    Little bumble bees
    Listening to the queen bee
    fly into the night.

    Our differences make us the same.
    Our similarities make us different.
    There it is,

    written on the wall.

    For you to see before your lids droop deep down

    into the darkness you are scared to know.

    Kiss it. It will kiss you back,

    sweetly, smoothly,

    This doesn’t feel right this doesn’t feel right this doesn’t feel right.

    Don’t…[Read more]

    Two hearted boy, the sun has come
    revealing all that is and was,
    after a long day’s night.

    There is no grief left, no Monday morning meditation to be had.
    There is only your sarcophagus sitting silently upon the threshold barrier.

    If anyone could open that stone death-blanket they’d see your ravaged soul fly out into the Tao,
    wanting, waiting,…[Read more]

    With burning passions, inner fire, and intense desire.

    I lay my hands on your torso.

    O, sweet dreams of your embrace surround me.

    Your facelessness speaks to my craving

    for the mistress I call Art.

    Words are literal in one level of depth. They have the ability to be used to create a direct meaning within the context of what that word means. Words can be definitive in those contexts.

    And in another they are also visceral. They have the ability to be used to create feeling; to shape an experience created by the emotional connection…[Read more]

    It’s not about being understood by others.

    It’s about clearly understanding yourself and being truthful to that understanding.

    There was a time in my life before it happened.
    Before the viciousness of a gang-initiation welcomed explosiveness into my life

    I do not want to go back to that time before

    and I do not want to move to a […]

    I’ve cried myself to sleep more nights than not in the past nine months.

    And each night, I take a deep breath and say to myself “Oh, I will dream tonight”.

    And I do, remembering them more and more often, no […]

    I believe in guidelines, not rules.

  • Jason commented on the post, trap 6 years, 9 months ago

    I once asked through relentless tears
    “Does it get better?”

    Your simple “No” confirmed what I already knew

    and my heart broke even further from the front this time, to the back.
    Pinning me against the […]
