  • My Roller Coaster Buddy

    My Roller Coaster Buddy,

    The man who’d “bomb” my hair,

    A man of integrity, kind and fair.

    Who loved to tease,

    Who was silly and always had fun,

    Everyone has a favorite memory of “Brother Murphy”.

    To everyone he would meet,

    He’d give them a …

  • Sweet Memory (Poem)

    Dreaming heart breaks

    there's no escape

    when you're with him

    I drown within

    your sweet memory

    . . .

    You're breaking free

    aching tears sliding

    now they fall free

    sobs spaced between

    and then you leave

    a sweet memory

    . . .

    It's all nothing

    'ship corrup…

  • In Retrospect

    In Retrospect

    I should have shut my mouth

    I should have stopped before

    the truth slipped out

    In Retrospect

    it did nothing to heal me

    I'm still broken inside

    only now you are, too

    In Retrospect

    Maybe you aren't broken

    Your flaw is that you ignore my

    rant…

    Grey hairs come from stress

    Silver comes from wisdom

    White hair, righteousness

    And baldness if you miss them

  • Green

    Unapologetically together,

    seeming like we're teeming with

    something you'll never know.

    Seeping with tingly feeling,

    I am not ashamed.

    Sometimes almost instinctually

    jealous.

    Green and calloused...

    your face.

    Are you sick?

    You should be ashamed.

  • 20:11

    Rock back and forth

    Upon the front porch

    I find myself here once again

    I'm grinding my teeth

    This sanctuary

    Won't let me keep playing pretend

    A cigarette held

    As memories meld

    The past, present, future are here

    And though I have claimed

    My faith is reg…

  • A Request

    If there is a God above

    If there’s a being filled with love

    If there’s a master of my fate

    If there’s a devil fueled with hate

    If there’s a battle raging on

    'Twixt angels and demons, eons long

    If there’s a heaven and a hell

    If there’s a coming judgement k…

  • Heart on the Line 9.26.14

    The night I laid out my heart,

    turned my life outside down,

    Our relationship had a new start...

    Best of friends for so many years,

    been through so much together,

    at some point, my heart - it interfered.

    Patiently - you listened,

    as I talked for hours,

    I…

  • To Vow - It Is To Love 9.12.14

    "Then the two will become one..."

    is what they say,

    Now, love has won -

    Insecurities and distrust is frayed.

    Today you vow to God above,

    To honor, to respect,

    but most of all: to Love -

    then never have anything else to regret.

    Your Bride - the radiance,…

  • These Nine Years - 9.11.14

    These short nine years,

    have gone by so fast,

    Our lives intertwined by-

    love and trust - so vast.

    From boys to books,

    our friendship never

    dared to forsook

    because it is forever.

    As we grow old-

    -er, our secrets - untold,

    our lives separated,

    by time an…

  • Engaged

    Smoky morning eyes made the light blur,

    but I knew where I was.

    I was home.

    I woke just before she left,

    just before she came to gently shake me

    to tell me goodbye and

    that she loved me

    and that she'd be back in the evening.

    The holes in my socks and ne…
