This year is off to a weird start...
December 5, 2022
Once again, the weekend has come and gone.
Our postponement has expired. I was hoping for more time. The morning sky cannot hide the truth. I see the warning buried beneath the horizon, preventing the sun from rising.
Hordes of Havoc
My life traverses a weary circle; a hollow atmosphere pollutes the seasons. Experience has lost its meaning. My famished darkness, tempted by the bloated hordes of havoc. Provoking this quiet wrath. Everything is uncertain. My days end writing my acquaintance, Death, a letter; the pages heft with regret
It’s Been A While
It’s been a while since I've felt the sun. Daily precipitation grows more intense. Finding my sense of direction, moving away from the storm yet, tethered to the chaotic attraction. Thunder without the touch of lightning. All I have is the rain.

There were meetings, meetings, and more meetings. Yesterday, my boss told me to invite the Managing Director to my 12:30 p.m. meeting and use a conference room. Not only did the Managing Director accept the invitation and not show up, but I was the only one in the conference room because everyone else dialed in … Continue reading August 16, 2022

I often wonder whether honesty is the best policy. Being true to myself is an arduous and questionable journey.
I see; the truth, the errors, and the ending.
I exist in a place of confusion; perspiration has the scent of chaos. My father visits my dreams, but he doesn’t recognize me. The ebb and flow of warnings erode the existence of time.
Seeds of resurrection. Childish games they continue playing. Those lingering lies were their truth as fairy tales. I stepped away. For a moment, my thoughts I quietly transcribed—a world of burning embers. I returned, and everything I knew turned to ashes. Memories no longer forgotten.

My horoscope says today is the luckiest day of the month for me. The Vernal Equinox welcomes us to Spring. The temperature is pleasant; the wind not so much. Yesterday, I took my car for an oil change; the inspection write-up was an expensive list. The price of gasoline isn't getting any cheaper either. Ukrainian … Continue reading March 20, 2022
I watched the seasons change and found a new opportunity. A sinister familiarity lingered. Something is unchanged. The rippling effect in the pit of my spirit tells me this is more than deja vu. Yes, I have been here before, many times over. I must come to terms with something, and I cannot locate it. … Continue reading Temporal Loop
An inexplicable void with improper goodbyes; removed with a sudden yank from my soul. Absence stained my heart and claimed my joy. Stories unreasoned and meanings despised, I will remember the tales and one day be reconciled. https://youtu.be/8SPdmXG2ejY
November 27, 2021. Exactly fifty six years ago to the day, my parents forged a union. Tied by a secret circumstance. Our lives shaken by revelations in the wake of my father’s death. Everything we knew was covered in blood. Every excuse and obsession was in Jesus’ name. Our house divided, it was never meant … Continue reading 1965
My path should have been different. Sentiment made my choice; the opportunity shared an equal quality—a questionable judgment based on hope. Now, I am sleeping in the rain. This mistake carries silence—no words of despair.
Dim the Lights
A change was made to keep me in place. I’ve been fighting the urge to run due to a sense of loyalty. A choice against my better judgment. It’s time to let go and give in to my nature.
I stand in front of an audience being someone else, hoping to satisfy the subject matter experts. The lights illuminating the anxiety. The painful memories of repercussions for not doing my best. “You're lazy,” I've been told when wanting to express my creative soul. “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I … Continue reading Memories
The warmth of summer is ending;the length of daylight decreases.Darkness carries heavy memories;the weight of despair increases.
Another storm is coming. Feeling the barometric pressure. Waiting for the strong winds, to begin parting our ways.
