Where Does My Soul Reside?

I have been so many caricatures to so many people A unified whole has rarely been experienced Some have seen what I allowed Others have seen what they assumed Yet others saw what they imagined me to be Precious few have observed the reality Camouflage and appearances have been my defense Within a world that...

Unquiet Dreams

Lately, much like this morning, I have found myself disturbed. A number have dreams have come to me of late that were very deceptive. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary, although the events and settings were themselves representative of monumental changes to my life. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary, but a sense of unease...

Pebbles Across the Water

This silence was soothing.  There was sound, but not that of civilization.  These were the song of the earth and fed the soul.  The water was expansive, still, and inviting.  Too sharp in its wrath to enter, but a resting place for a lost spirit.  He thought of its depth and the welcoming embrace of...

Thou Shalt Not

So it goes Another line in the sand I crave contentment Serenity To keep chained a beast Malignance given physical stature Restrain the anger Grown cold from imprisonment Yet still smoldering Eagerly awaiting that breath The puff of air To ignite the conflagration I have fought this creature Time and again Shackled it Listened to...

Thoughts on the Nightmare Plague

Easily this has been my favorite project to ever work on and it's tearing me apart that focus and determination are insufficient means to resume work on it. It began as something dear to me, representing issues of concern. I had begun to think of it less as a serial piece and something that I... Continue Reading →

A Community of Strangers

I have been struggling to write anything sincew April. I told my therapist that I feel writing may be the key to pull myself out of where I am right now mentally and he was enthusiastic about the idea. I spoke about how much I love meeting people around the world on Twitter and seeing... Continue Reading →
