The little piece of me
That's tied to you
Fragile as spider's silk
In constant tension
And in fear of being broken
Yet it's my favorite part 
Of a web
When the sun catches morning dew
And throws its rainbow
Across my soul

That wish hurled at a star
How do you know
If it lands there
Rehashing dreams 
Silently praying 
Trusting the cosmos with
Your heart

Glowing lights at a
Long tunnel's focal point
It could be my end
Maybe a beginning
Maybe it's just a wish that 
Escaped the dark
Racing from the demon behind me

Bend me
Try to break me
Do your best
It's harder than you think 
Leather gives 
Where chains would bind
Winds that wrench an oak
Make the willow dance
And I hear a song
In the storm

What is the tipping point
Of feeling and knowing 
Realizing the depth of 
The soul's deception
Hearts tossed to the wind
Left to fend for themselves 
Escaping only when
Scars are exposed and
Stars go dark

Hearing the wind 
Echo through the trees
Allows my mind to wander
Reality dims a bit
Time slows
And I can dream
Colors unseen
Hating that when it's over
Everything resets to grey

When life is too much 
And I feel I'm not enough 
Your X hits the spot

Grey skies 
And the rain won't stop 
The water keeps rising 
My glass box turns into
A sanctuary of sorts 
A prison of sorts
My crippling fear of
Not breathing 
Keeps me here 
Since there is no hero
On the horizon

The Zone

Body and soul
Total possession
The rhythm that can't be stopped
I give in to the
Demands over and over
And finally feel the relief
That comes with
Complete surrender 

Sunday, April 12, 2015


Not just a breath
But every one I take 
Not just a moment 
But each one that has passed
Not just a feeling
But all of them at once
This is my whirlwind
This is my world
Since you took my hand

140 Proof

Just one more drink
Until the numbness comes
Stake my heart and 
Tattoo my skin
Iron shackles start to
Feel like home 
I implore the darkness to 
Embrace my soul and 
Defend the broken pieces

No anesthetic
I want to feel the cuts
There is less feeling the 
Deeper you slice anyway
I want to watch the ugliness
As its carved out like a cancer
Until all my nerve endings
Have been removed 
And there is 
Nothing left but numb

Black Dog says: Let go. 
You will never be "enough"
To keep what you want.

My days are spent 
Thinking I'm unloved
Nights pass while I believe
I'm unwanted
Billions of people
And not a single pair of eyes
Willing to turn my way
I'm lost treasure
No one is looking for
Buried by a sandy blanket
