Lately I feel like I am not living life. It’s like I am stuck in a film, and I am watching this version of myself on a loop. It’s beyond predictable and redundant, it’s disheartening. I know that I need structure, but I feel like the borg someday; fully assimilated (This is a super nerdy … Continue reading Trapped
This poem is more like free running for my soul. The man depicted in the following piece is a scared, sad and self destructive boy. Someone who was headed for a quick exit off of the highway. This is me 15 years ago. Act One Acting tough, In a meek way. Flashing that broken smile. … Continue reading Portrait of an Addict
The Resolution So it’s been almost a month since I posted. It sucks how a couple days of not writing can turn into a week, a month and so forth. I didn’t want to let that happen, and this blog means too much to me to allow myself to give up on it. The funny … Continue reading Down but Never Out
Savage anger spews, Haphazardly covering. Innocent children. Inherited rage, An ancestral gift given, But never emptied. A circle of pain, Fueled by hate and fear. Forever? Snuffed out by our love.
(Dedicated to my loving wife of almost 10 years) Will it happen, Once again. A moment etched, Forever in my mind. Still nights spent alone. Questioning. The reality of it all.

Colors blend in a deafening roar, an emotional roller-coaster tour. Being pulled up, down, left and right. Full-blown emotional plight. Red rings harder then blue, causing me to cry then stew. A volcano of fear and desire, the culmination of water and fire. Steamed up in an empty pot. My heart feels like a vacant … Continue reading Emotional Tie-Dye
Darkness swallows up the sky, Light extinguished, life will die. A blank canvas of nothingness. The totality of eternity is a mess. A burst of light breaks the scene. Life reforms in the in between. Blooming in a deadly drought. Idol hands are sowing doubt. Years of suffrage ignite, Counting down the final fight. Who … Continue reading Triumphant
Beaten Down Power slips through my hand, Like a million grains of sand. Crumpled and alone. Imprisoned Tears streak down my face, Like an old dam in a storm. Flooded by my fear. Lifted up Love lifts up my heart, Like sunshine in a rainstorm. Steadied by new hope.
