Liberty

The notion of simplicity is complicity in nature. We cannot contest what we cannot see. Now, life teeters on a mandate. In sickness and in health, we wear the mark. […]

Decline

I don’t like where this path is trending. The cold air pressing against my back despite it not being winter. The flickering light of day reveals something in the shadows. […]

Outside

Dreamt of scene; Panic within a familiar place. All of the exits locked. Trust in the unfamiliar; A different path of escape.

Shattered

Waking to a dimly lit sunrise Smiling at the hope of promise Day darkens quickly Shadows pummel a shaken spirit Seeking salvation in the darkness Falling towards despair Lying within […]

Darkest Hour

Night seems Eternal. Waiting no Longer. Taking new Paths. Seeing the light. Comfort and Joy.

Descent

I used to bask in the morning light. Nuclear Winter clouds the sky. The temperature dips below the freezing line.  My fear subsides with the fading sunlight.  It is in […]

Rest in Peace

I did not sleep well. I dreamt of the unfamiliar. Darkness for hours. Silence into the morning. I miss seeing the sunrise.

Simple Finale

Destroyed

I remember the day, The words etched in stone. Breathe. I remember the quiet, The air remaining still. Breathe. I remember the moment, The calm before the storm.

Grateful

A child’s wish in the morning. Chalk drawn imaginations on the blank pavement. Story’s told along the clouds. Fables and fairytales. Musical delights. Joy indescribable. An old man’s dream in […]

Dry Despair

Blindness guided me. A storm wounded my soul Endless disarray. One bad decision times three. Bourbon counsels my sanity. Hoping for wisdom. Weeping without tears.

Free Falling

I looked at the decision Remembering my hazy concern Realizing I have fallen deeply Beneath the murky despair.

Feels

Snowflakes start their fall; Barely seen. Crashes on the terrain; Never heard. Touches on the skin; We remember.

Withering

Beginnings of an ending; Slow burn of a flame; Heart full of antagonism. Love is dying again.
