I write and sometimes like tacos on Thursday. Oh and I have a book out now.
April 4, 2019

Blisters weaken
Hearts are worn
Let me refrain from
Thoughts unformed
The tears they wash
Bitter chains
Cutting deep a
Slow death rain
Hear my heart
Stutter in beat
Watch me fumble
These two left feet
Find the night
The darkness lay
Between two tears
Always this pain
But alas my heart
Claims this scurry
No need to wince
No need to worry
The pain keeps me wild
The moon keeps me sane
And I carry the night
My slow death rain

I have sold my soul
For pennies and ink
Waiting for true love
To give me another wink
For my words to climb vines
And my verse to beat hearts
I have done all this
Within a breath
And a start
For this pen has no meaning
If it doesn’t write
And my voice
Can’t be silenced
If I still fight
So I spread these words
A poets truth
To never disobey my pen
Or my stolen youth
For I have rhymes
And I have verse
But I also have a voice
And a truth that hurts
I will be heard
If only under these wings
Burning pages
I will sing
Up in flames
The pain will go
And hopefully help
Another soul
As for me
I begin to fly
Into the arms
Where true love lies
Spread your voice
Over your wings
Let it ...

The darkness between love and sight
The one that hits you in the night
The thoughts that crumple you to the floor
Banging your head against the door
Wondering if there is another life
One that doesn't end with a knife

I wish I could leave the winter behind
I wish these tears didn’t bounce off my forever frozen grim
Where the sun does shine
I sit in shadow
Waiting for this heart to beat again

wild and worn beautifully stripped

bare soul, bare heart, naked and pure

forever waiting an unknown touch

a kindness of heart to match her own

You mirror my heart
A perfect reflection of what love should be

If I could tell you I love you
Just one more time
Maybe
You would change your mind
But we both fell
Silent
Not even a
Goodbye

You were soft
A snowfall upon my flesh
Resting in just the right way
A blanket of diamonds
Where summer had left me bare

I learned love in the wilds
On the wind
Beneath the trees
Across the cool waters
That embrace an open heart with ease
Until your eyes match my sky
Until you learn why the leaves must cry
Until you see where this love flourishes
We will remain a mystery of silent nights and near misses

You are the universe
You are the stars
Nothing you can touch
Everything you can feel
You remain
An impossibility

I am black coffee at 4am
I am the walk beyond the trees
I am the wrapper of your dreams
Floating on yesterday's winds
I am the fading image when the lights go out
I am kindness, forgiveness, and dash of hope
I am all things taken for granted and nothing left for today
I am the scurry of a squirrel and the bark climbed upon
I am an inconsistent ration
Of a drug no one trusts
Of all these things
I still am a voice
A strange wonderful voice
The one you hear when things go silent
The one that says
"I believe in you."

All I ever wanted to be was myself
And if that is weird
Then weird is perfect

She was your favorite song
A duet you had yet to know
On her lips
You would find the melody
In her heart
You would find the soul

Can you tell me what it is like
to see in the rain
Sing with the birds
Release this pain

Can you tell me what it is like
To feel love drown you in one breath
And break cages  in the very next
Flying without purpose
Landing without regret

Maybe we are just drunk
High on mystic vision
Lovers forgetting to love
Leaping forgetting to fall

I am covered in pain
From head to toe

I never knew I could absorb any more
But alas here I am
Enduring it all once again

A life less ordinary
A loss deeper than extraordinary

This heart is still
With the emptiness
Of you

And I feel it more than ever
In the holly
The jolly
The countless parties
Endless happiness for those who have someone to hold
''Tis the season

I still remember those mountain hikes the ones were kisses at the top were more important than catching our breath
Or when we went to the Grand Canyon on a day trip only to pull over and make love in the car
Because we couldn't wait and
in the steam on the window you wrote "Love"
And when we got the keys to our first house and we ate pizza on the floor by candlelight
Happy because our life was here
Finally
And that time when you came home from work and found me crying because I couldn't get rid of the snake in the front yard but you did and then you hugged me so tight telling me nothing would ever get me.
But life got us, it got us both.
You are still here in my words.

I will always w...

When it comes to the rainy days
The ones that drag for hours
I don't mind and I don't worry
As much as I love the next adventure
As much as I love the sky
I have always been able to escape in a book
Sit in my library
Coffee in hand
And let the rain
Dance to its own melody
While my heart gets lost
In its own adventure

  Take care when you hold me
The bruises are fresh
Blindfolded in fear
Broken mends broken
Held on by a life of promise
Where not all love is true
My will has been shattered
Still I reach for you
Be tender be wise
Take care when you hold me
Seeing through these blind eyes

I wish I could run to you
Tell you my heart is breaking
Tell you the world needs kindness and love
But you taught me more about pain than anything
So I think I will go my own way
And give all the light I have left
To a world that has seen enough pain

I wonder if you are out there
Out there in the rain
Cold and damp
Searching through the fog of discontent
Wandering for a heart to fill your arms
Wondering if she
Is looking for you
As she sits still
Mixing tears on the window pane
Tracing your heart in the fog
Searching for the same

Darkness set my soul adrift
Lost in a sea of randomness
Our eyes locked under nightmares follow
Tonight's stars forgetting tomorrow
An anchors chain holds us deep
Entwining hearts bring us peace

Sometimes we all need to reflect on the world . The whole of humanity and ask ourselves do we like what we see?
And if we don't what are we doing to change it?

If we are not part of the solution we are part of the problem
Whether you are a writer, musician or artist

YOU HAVE A VOICE

Use your gifts for the greater good.

Much love
xoxo

Let's plant a moment
Under old scars
Water it in sweet caresses
Maybe with our light
We can reach new heights
Shifting into one
And forever be
In bloom

Good morning
I thought of you upon waking
Your hands found my hips and pulled me in
Your breath found its place just as mine began to gasp
Eyes trace blind in warming slumber
While lips whisper intentions our nakedness can no longer hide
Close and even closer still as deeply felt as we grow bottomless
Forgetting hands of four and hearts of two
But glowing in pleasure the fire of one

Let's play a game
The one where you remember my name
The one where you tell me you love me
And  I do the same
Let's go through the motions
When neither of us is ready
Just to say we are not alone
Just to say we are trying

Hey lonely wolf don't fear me I know the wilds you face, the hardships you've seen,the love you seek
I too face the moon searching, running and losing hope
But tonight we are in kind let us run tandem under this glow and be not lonely or lost
