I'm disappointed
Each time I sit down
To write my life's story
Where to begin?
Day one
Birth?
NO
Conception?
Definitely not
Repressed memories
I can't remember
But can't suppress
Traces of childhood
Cloudy at best
Fast forward
To formative years
Where the pain began
A cycle of uncertainty and redundancy
And frustration with no end
Did my delusions begin then?
Were they omnipresent
Omniscient
Mad rush to the ending
Which keeps extending
And lending itself
To the myth that I may not die
Having never truly lived
Second guess myself
Can I bare to let someone indifferent
Unbiased
Write my book
When I'm dead?
So much I've hidden
To passersby
That I thought someone
Somewhere might find
This torture...

Dark times I navigated alone
when all the paltry peeps
have gone home
Broke into cryptic
Writings and railroad songs
Bow your head and play along
When there's no one left to trust
Self turns inward
Self confidant
Harbinger of secrets
Culled from private pain
What he brings to light
Only burns himself even more
When he lets them in closer
And closer for them to exemplify
How little they truly care
They bend their ears
And crane their magnifying glass
Only to twist the words
In his face
Now he's learned to stand
Alone
Protector of the heart's true flame
With the midnight moon in full view
proof to himself
He's no longer susceptible to
You

God,
Please order my steps.  Direct me in the way I should go.  I’m being pulled in so many directions.  I need to hear your voice.  I want to get my life together and to be here for my children.  Thank you for granting me favor.  Thank you for bringing me this far.  My life is in your hands.  Mold me into the man you have created me to be.  My hope is in you.  I will trust in your will and not in my own limited understanding.  Your ways are higher than my ways.  Your thoughts are higher than my thoughts.  Plant your word into my heart.  Place your words in my mouth.  Please guide me into your perfect will.
Thank you, Heavenly Father.

I hope your birthday
Is chock-full of karmic realizations
That as you're pouring
Yourself a strong drink
You are reminded of
The children you
No longer visit
And your own childishness
You seem blissful to have
Shed your responsibilities
Ignorant of your transgressions
Apostolic shamanic
With the albatross
Hanging remorselessly
Around your neck
Not guilty
You say
You plead
With your hand
On the Bible
And fingers crossed
Behind your back
The same hand
That stabbed me
With a knife
The same hand
That smacked me around
When you were angry
Or when I wasn't
"Good enough for you"
[I replay in slow motion
Your plot backfiring]
Watch it all sift
Through that sa...

You shun Jekyll
But revile Hyde
Having given him
The potion to drink
At war with his multiple sides
He starts to peel away
And examine his heart
Post apocalypse
How he had loved
And then spewed hatred
Destroying everything
In an instant
The sad realization
Having done more harm
Than good
I pray this
Will not be
My legacy
The duality that contradicts
The spirit of purity
While he does wish you well, now
He hopes you won’t despise him forever
Cast out of paradise
Already invisible
If you wanted to talk
To him
You would
But he’s gone dark
From this point
Radio silence

Confabulation
A parley with your captain
Tossed the bric-a-brac
Briarean knickknacks
He finally kicked back
So many long lonely days
With crickets and birds chirping alike
And after we had wheedled down the palaver
We found out he was most eloquent
With stultiloquence
Loqui
- To speak
Low key
Having never heard your voice
Wafting over like warm air
Are you still there?
Waved my hand
But what do you care?
Im not here
I’m not there
I’m not anywhere

Father,
God,
Please forgive me
As I let go of this burden
Of harboring resentment
Against others who have
Done harm to me.
Please forgive my multitude of sins against you and others.
I know I have failed the last several tests
Please redirect my path
Order my steps
Please remove this curse from me
I pray peace for my enemies
Bless those fully who have cursed me
Bless those I have wronged in my heart
Please heal my heart
Please close this wound
Fill me with your love
Guide me into your truth
I want to walk in your blessing again
You have always been faithful and kind to me
Even though I have done nothing to deserve your mercy
So I will pray this prayer again
Because you have proven your wor...

Removed from one
Compartment and
Stored in the circular file
Of her begotten dreams
Poker faced
Detached from
The actualities
And formalities of her passions
She files the broken
Half of her salt lamp
Under her pillow at night
Unable to give off
Any more light
She was telescopic
Remote standoffish and unapproachable
Rigorously unsympathetic
Having accepted her assumed role
Of hermit like lone wolf
Draped in salacious
Whore of Babylon sachet
Mental mystery
So called sacrifice
More like a fire sale of sanctity
Shucked off the importance
Of everything in her world
And deposited one lonely
Memory in her
Polar icebox of a heart
A vial of his tears
That she sips from
Once she’s forgotten
H...

Are you lost?
Did you stay awake watching the moon
Surrounded with a blue and red aura
Try knocking at the door
I watched it too
I’d roll down the window for you
Perplexed with perpetuity
Refusing to succumb to notions
Of mediocrity
Complacency sleeps in the car
With the seat leaned back
One foot protruding
Into the pungent night air
When I’m ready to
Face this giant tyrant
I slip into my nicest rags
Steady my hand
Run a comb
Through cowboy hat hair
Straighten my tie
Tuck in my shirt
And place all of my chips
On one solid bet
Me
At the end of this road
Looking in the rear view
At the clouds
At the saturation
Of invitations
Shadowing night’s end
I can see you have laid
Down the stem of th...

She is a broken window
Peering into my soul
She’s a black widow
With a heart of gold
She’s a collaborator and contributor
That never takes credit
For the good
But blames herself
For all the bad things
That have happened to her
She’s been abandoned
By the ones she was closest to
She’s had her heart torn apart
So many times
She forgets it’s still
Beating and bleeding through the pain
She’s built walls to cradle
Her broken heart
And prevent the wrong person
From smashing the bits and
Pieces that remain

I saw her there
In her eyes
Like I had known her
From another time
And I felt a spark
Ignite in my heart
I had to speak with her
I would risk seeming desperate
Just to talk with her
Ask her q...

Sunday Ghost

Sunday early morning
Wake to lights flickering
There’s an apparition in my room
Flooded with images of memories
Walking through parks
While the sun rose
Over a school playground
Indiscriminately choosing
Her latest victim
Of Sunday paper theft
Climbing trees
Capturing the moment
Snapshot
A June bug
A dragonfly
A lady
Big smile
That danced
I was comforted
In that parallel world
Where she spent her remaining days
Sanctuary
Restless
Strung out
Castaway
Seance
Behind it all
I witnessed the compassion
She gave freely
Of herself
A kind soul
But not whole
Aching
Shaking
Breaking
Like me
She said you’re not
As bad as they say
Open your eyes
She said
Look out there
Look in there

A flunky turned
Sycophant subordinate savant
I’ll take the peanuts
You throw to me
And make a stew
I’m scrounging through
The last remnant of change
To buy a cigar
To billow smoke on the day
A restless smile buried
Under the nights of sand
Slipped through the fingers
Of his maleficent hands
“Five minutes of your time?”
He cried out
He heard the echo
Reach the other side
And bounce back
Silence squared to the power of infinity
Steel trap heart box clamped shut eternal
There was nothing left but the
Decapitated head of his dream
And the hollow painted cavern of his memory

Funny thing about
Watching your life burn
The smoke of it
Has a paralyzing
Calming aroma
Nothing left to lose
Nowhere left to run
No more pleasantries
Banalities
Fake smiles
No fancy jingles
Or gimmicks​
No false illusions
Of securities
Having shred all modicum
Of modesty and nostalgia
Left shaking
Naked as you were
Once infantile

No one calls me
At 2 o'clock in the
Morning anymore
Unable to access
Their worldly possessions
          Smart man that
          Turned private loss
          Into a billion dollar industry
No
The only people who call me
On a daily basis now
Are the bill collectors
They are cannibals of their own species
They wipe their asses
And shovel cheeseburgers
Into their...

The words are always eluding me these days.  In a constant state of war with each other for supremacy, dancing in kinetic chaos at the forefront of my cerebral cortex.  Your limited perspective of my personalities has not altered the inner vessel, but he's struggled for oxygen in a vacuum of his depravation. The mangled thoughts mumbled into mush.  What other ways to portray seeds of truth borne late at night when one can almost view with his naked eye the sky turning?  He'd scream the words, but it's of no use to anyone.  He's lost his way.  Lost sight of what is good and righteous and Holy.  Ambition and sustenance has become his aim.  Plain.  He's out of place. Stuck in the rigamarole once...

18 blocks
Why does one drink to numb pain?
I cannot ascertain
Profane refrain
17 blocks
Watching you wash yourself
Down the drain
To attempt to halt your self destruction
Is like trying to take the last savory
Bite out of the moon.
16 blocks
I see a boulder on the side of the road
From afar it resembles
A woman kneeling
Weeping
15 blocks
Application of supplication
Cold hands outstretched
A truck passes and splashes
Cold mud on my face
14 blocks
Replay
watching you shake
Writhing in imaginary agony
Manic street lamps
13 blocks
Caustic alcoholic murmuring
Cursing God
But repeating the same old mistakes
A beaded prayer chokes
The remaining life from you
12 blocks
Why would one affix your a...

Bound by time
Without a dime
Serving a life sentence
Being born was my crime
Born naked in this world
Of hatred and fear
Where but for a handful of saints
Morality has disappeared
I shudder and wince
While the world gawks at my expense
Thrown my worldly possessions
My wallet over the fence
Recompense
Decadence
Truth existing only
In the past tense
You hide your Billy Bob
Toothed smile
As you say you're sorry
For my misfortune
Your vain last line of defense
You don't realize
What depths I've gone to
To narrowly survive
You don't see
The chemical imbalance in my brain
The pain reminds me
I'm still "alive"
You've never been hungry
Like I have been
Or walked through these streets
Without a frien...

A conflagration
Of condemnation

Pass it round
Take two tablets of pain

You see me on the corner
Holding a paper bag
A sign that says
I need a hand
I have made mistakes
My body is weak
And cries for food
I need you to be
A blessing to me
God bless you friend
I see you pass by
Don't cross the street
Don't look away from me
You see me coming
Won't you shake my hand?
And treat me like a man?
I was not above this
Once
Look me in the eyes
I am afraid to go home
City rescue?
Jesus house?
Won't let me stay there anymore
All the windows busted out
I haven't seen real food
Since you threw mine away
Where is God?
He releases food
At the proper time
Can't you see?
I'm a child of God
Too
Blessed are the poor
Blessed are those whose
Worldly wealth will not p...

beheld through glass eyes
the terrible turn that assured her doom
a tiny grave marks the spot
where we bled in unison
a flower there to commemorate despair
i drive slowly past the cathedral of dreams
gazing on the emptiness
i feel the cold chill of blatant stares
a second glance disturbs my indifference
sharp pain burns through the equator of my heart
lashing flames lick through my fingertips
i can taste the sulphur of your disdain
i stand alone in this prism of unknown sadness
i will face you and your self important facade
i am still standing despite your fallen angels
walking through palpable fear
my mind is a casualty of time travel
at first I embraced consciousness
