Bitter Dark Snow Globe

    I know I crossed that line, blazed with it, inhaled it; like a rough morning, sunrises slow and greasy over the wrong side of town.   Never knew a day like any other. Never imagined anything could be better than that sharp hydrochloride bite and the rush up swim down, fuck it all … Continue reading Bitter Dark Snow Globe

Killing Our Dead

Blessed are the Peacemakers; awash in the blood of innocence, their own culpability coppery red upon their lips. Never wage a war in a vacuum. There is a simple rule obeyed by all combatants. Surrender, only to your baser urges.   I have never killed a man. I have never desired it so. There was … Continue reading Killing Our Dead

Subcutaneous Love Affair

Deny me. Deny my everything. It's what you need to live, what you believe will give you what you need; an opportunity to breathe, but you're drowning in the deep.   Look away from me. Two steps away and you'll agree; the grass is greener. You're a big believer. Now, another two or three and … Continue reading Subcutaneous Love Affair

Café Rédemption

There were never many times where I got it right; just a few short moments and the words always seem to fail on my tongue, or on my fingertips.   Today, I sit in a squalid, messy café, crumbling sugar into my tea and sweating out another prayer to a silent and irreconcilable God.   … Continue reading Café Rédemption

Dopamine

Suffer, but never recover. The things we are after are meaningless. All we receive is more trouble, I’ve seen it double. You’re bleeding out and I’m digging under.   Spend all your time, your money, your effort, your soul thinking that you’re in control. I can give you everything, just a chemical reaction in your … Continue reading Dopamine

Memory of a Party Girl

The same things that dragged her under, tempted her back up again. Though tortured by their skilled caresses, her face split from ear to ear. Prettiness cracked in two; wide smile lips, red blood make-up, concealing jagged teeth, made brutal for the love that lingered.   She said his fists loved her; that his heart … Continue reading Memory of a Party Girl

Daily Word Jumble

King of the long draw, the explanation gone. Self denier, a clinical neglect.   Shake them old bones, see what the future brings. Never give up, always give in to the medicine.   Hang on for now, the weather's gonna change, far reaching and long gone, the interface.   An addict is an addict, no … Continue reading Daily Word Jumble

Autumn’s Promise

You were telling me of Autumn, but the words stumbled from your lips, like drunken beggars, seeking a gutter in which to lay. Sweet dreams, of a new year and another chance. Funny, how we've been out of school for so many years and September still feels like the beginning of something, but it is … Continue reading Autumn’s Promise

Disposable Syringe

You can feel it crawl across your skin, anticipating the stimulation, shivering with trepidation until it pierces through you.   Disguised as spiritual release, it's really nailing you down, you let it hammer itself through that precious part of you and stake you to the ground.   It's just a temporary twitch, it's going to … Continue reading Disposable Syringe

Nurture Not The Hurt

After every disaster there is a moment where we get to choose to put it all back together the way we were, the way it was, or making something new.   We see so much of the same old, same old shit. Why would we want to rebuild what led to it? Why not make … Continue reading Nurture Not The Hurt

The Less and The Numb

You drew me inside with the promise of danger, all that I find is the less and the numb. The loss of sensation has deadened the touch, the thrill is all gone you promised too much and couldn’t deliver.   You said you would bring me the sun, but you fell short of Venus. So … Continue reading The Less and The Numb

“The Malcontent” Collection – Concluded

Well folks, I think that wraps up "The Malcontent" collection. Spoiler Alert! - I survived!   As you can see, if you have followed to the final piece, it was a return to faith in the spiritual that led me out of the dark place that I was in. This is of course, very common … Continue reading “The Malcontent” Collection – Concluded

Redundant Life

Dropped out - Ground down So proud - Now loud unbound. I've come - Gone long - Singles suffer. Now one from none and no other.   Building bridges just to burn, afraid you'll have to wait your turn, because it takes time to fuck it up right.   Holy and heathen - feeding the … Continue reading Redundant Life

Bastards

No cover, no bigger rush. No other, so much for this shit. There lies the favor, love her or hate her, here is your saviour; shrouded in malcontents.   Sit and wonder how I stand, what I've done with my own hands. Draw out this distorted love, where is the one that I dream of? … Continue reading Bastards

Been Through Hell

Bracing myself for the impact, amazed at the walls as they go rushing past, elated - euphoric - when I don't crash; like I've done so many times before.   I won't be restrained - remain in place, a grin spreads across my face. Through Hell I come home, a battle won - the war … Continue reading Been Through Hell

Been Through

No waste - Just taste Denied every other pleasure. A long time gone, facing torment beyond measure. Left reassured that it's all over, abandoned past that haunts forever.   Standing on top of a pain felt so long, so many months into years, I've been wrong. First to admit that I faced down some shit, … Continue reading Been Through

Visually Distorted

Vision - This uncompromising stare, lays me bare - layer by layer. No cover - No other No faking it. True one and to you the ultimate. Feed off the mistakes of our loved ones. Consume - Regurgitate and hope you don't choke on it.   Exposed - Naked as a newborn I grow - … Continue reading Visually Distorted
