Poem: That Fool

I have been foolish  A fool as well Yet, it is misunderstood by so many Some interpret it as being dim witted I have been thought of as slow Whereas others have called me brilliant On occasion, they are the same person The reality is that of a damaged mind Not a matter of intellect...

Poem: Untitled, old

As you lay, alive and dead, I wonder, ponder, and weep Over the destruction of our dream I stand close by, watching you As you sleep without waking The result of a loving relationship Lying a few feet away in another bed Clean, sterile, orderly The very image of medical efficiency How did I fail...

Poem – Fleeting

My heart is troubled As though that is new So many possibilities But only for so many Others have run out Gone Dust to dust It weighs down the soul Saying goodbye Whether to a lover Or a loved one The pain remains Always acting as reminder That our time is short And our work... Continue Reading →

A Clarification, Perhaps

The other day I found a comment in the spam folder that looked like it was a genuine person rather than a bot, but perhaps it was. Regardless, it was attached to a blog post regarding the loss of a friend that was more of the little brother I wished I had. I discussed a... Continue Reading →

Judgements

I love you Do you? How can you say that When you hate yourself? Hmm, apparently you misheard the past tense I had evolved by then Past hatred To a mere dislike Even that has passed now But your judgements remain Self-loathing can beget love Who better to recognize it A heart that cannot love...

Pretty Lies, Abandoned Hope

I grasp so often for illusions Phantoms born of hope A touch of misery, certainly I am told you are out there That you wait till we find one another But perhaps they are mistaken I have searched  Desperately, at times All in an attempt to discover you A figment A fragment, mayhaps Of a...

The Unseen Road

You have taken a road I cannot see One day I shall find it and give chase My heart is empty since you left I call your name at times Forgetting that you are oblivious My voice isn’t strong enough  No sound could traverse such a distance You are on the low road I am... Continue Reading →
