  • Endure

    You come home and find me sitting here

    And ask how my day is going

    Acting as though I have open ears

    And nothing better to be knowing

    Than all about you

    And all that you do

    I'm the one who nags about your mess

    Even though you never listen

    I give more, y…

  • Emotions and Anaesthetics

    Emotions rage & flare inside my mind

    
I panic, scream, & quiver oftentimes,


    But these explosive feelings feel confined

    
Behind a barricade that muffles, mutes, & binds.

    I know I'm having feelings, but their sound

    
Is stifled, distant; my heart seems quit…

  • The Search

    My snow is grey and never white

    It glows and slowly drifts from sight

    I watch it fall and breathe the scent

    And never wondered where it went

    My fog is thin and never fills

    It floats and swirls where e'er it wills

    I watch the clouds and trace the streams

  • Inspiration

    Inspiration sought

    but just for a thought

    a snippet of something to say

    Longs' been the time

    when my heart penned a rhyme

    emotions inspiring some prose

    A muse just to bring

    to light a small thing

    that awakens creativities flow

    when quite so suddenly

    I …

  • Untamed

    A wolf I will claim

    yet a dog I became

    there was no other way to describe

    I did all that you said

    as your little pet

    ignoring my pride

    I lavished affection

    at your beck and call begging

    for your hand upon my furry hide

    At the time I confess

    that I love…

  • The Secret, Part 3/3

    And now, like a spirit, your voice rings once more


    How confusing to put them together:


    Your voice, and your words, I could never expect

    
You would speak this way to me. Can we reconnect?


    With the return of hot, muggy weather

    
Comes a new conversation. …

  • The Secret, Part 2

    You were so sure I'd wronged you, you'd made me believe

    It was surely my fault; but then, how?

    
All the pages grew soggy and limp with the turning;


    There were so many leads, but they all left me burning,

    
But the smoke didn't spell out an answer; well, n…

  • The Secret, Part 1

    I never understood what I'd done that was wrong,


    Why you exiled me thus from my life.

    Was it something I did? Was it something I said?

    I strapped me to a table, I taped still my head

    
Underneath the hot lights. I was cut with a knife

    
But my brain wouldn…

  • As The Wind Rolls In

    A storm is approaching

    it’s on the horizon

    so cover your eyes now

    and consume your poison

    The harsh winds are blowing

    the clouds are rolling in

    the good Lord turns his back

    as you commit your sins

    Run from your problems

    run so far away

    it makes …

  • Gone With the Wind

    Chaos ensues. All that was once so eloquently placed is now thrown into the wind. The pieces land with no apparent rhyme or reason. An intrigued outsider may sit to the side and calmly observe those around him frantically scramble to create some form of d…

  • 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…

  • Imbalanced Thinking

    You tell me to shine,

    but as soon as I do-

    all I hear is whine, whine, whine..

    Tell me once and for all,

    what you want me to do,

    This request is small.

    My hearts on the line,

    and my mind is a racin',

    Could you give me a sign?

    Calm me,

    like you used to …

    Your Bride - the radiance,…
