A Child is Born

It is to us a funny thing; Divinity. A more abstract notion we have not entertained. That there would be, like us, but something more. A far beyond, but not unreachable.   Perhaps a comfort lost to walls and bonds, for loneliness no longer drives the heart. For fear and subjugation are now become abstract […]

Pet Shop Boy

He’s stopped again, between thoughts, he looks around like he’s lost, sees something and he’s off again.   He seems to be searching for a door, for these walls do nothing but restrict him. The sides of his skull ache, his body breaks, when he tries to take it where he wants to go.   […]

Kill the King

See, we all gathered around to hear the news today, to see if the song still remained as it had for ten thousand yesterdays, but there were murmurs in the backcourt, dissention on the line and I knew that these men were no longer my brothers; some, I couldn’t recognise.   Greed and envy take […]

Birthday Wishes

Infinite, like your imagination, or is it the end, just outside your eyes? Does it matter, this planned division? Is it the truth? Aren’t we immaculate?   Tidal waves are consequences, sure as a flash bulb steals your soul and irreverence; that sarcastic discord, bought only seconds that seemed like forever.   Even the returning […]

Permission

They say that it’s OK. We can be any kind of way. Everybody has a little larceny in them, but I don’t want to offend, or be their friend. It’s just so easy and I just lose myself in the end.   I gave up drugs and nicotine to be the man that I could […]

What Purpose?

I have been playing dead out of fear that the behemoth of time and duty will take me.   I have been feigning death, in hopes that the monster of my life will simply pass me by.   A childish man, hiding under the proverbial covers, safe only from imaginary boogeymen, but not from life. […]

My Inglorious Fate

Time, like water, only runs down and runs out. Might as well say I’ll stay thirsty and late. I’ve avoided the law of the man, of the gods, now I’m left here sitting at the gate.   Rode the storm and boy, it was a long one. Wandered the desert and paid with lovers and […]

Early Morning Visitation

I heard your voice this morning and it had been more than a long time. I didn’t call on you like I said I would, I was too ashamed.   You knew that I had broken all my promises and had let my lust linger in those old, dark places. I had begun to view […]

Untitled – 07/22/16

I have lifted my eyes to You, to see what You are and know what You have done. I have seen You in the sky, but that is not Your dwelling place. I have seen You in the dust, but that is only a trace of Your presence. I have known You not in acts, […]

(The Hunger For) Absolution

Open your bottled up confessions, let them breathe a little while. Come bearing your unanswered questions, I’ve got the answers and a smile. I’ll hear your sins and your transgressions, I’ll soothe your hurt and dry your tears, but don’t you think for one more minute that you’re safe, or in the clear.   You’ve […]

Love The Fight

Who do you love? What do you crave? Is your fantasy worth fighting for? Are your dreams worth being saved? Will you rise up and take them back from grave? What price would you pay?   Rising before the sun, we lead the march to war. Like the angels proclaim The One, we believe in […]

A Lighthearted Chat With an Angel

Some know me as “Consequence”, others as “Justice” and to some, I am “Judgement”. I have, at times, been wrathful and to the spiritual, my intervention is “Divine”.   I exist on both sides of every war, I walk between battlefields, like you walk through aisles at the market. The carnage of righteous indignation, or […]

Dying

If I touch you, can I heal you? If I reach you, will you hear? If I speak with words of comfort, will it take away your fear? If I lay down on your death bed, hold your hand just for a while, will you rise up to walk with me, or pass on with […]

The Philosophical Machine

If I keep picking at these loose threads, will I unravel the world? I keep thinking, “What good’s a writer, if he doesn’t capture the words?”   Pulling at the worn fringes of reality, of sanity; it all threatens to come apart on its own, so why try saving anything? Can I pull the universe […]

Footsteps Like The Wind

What does it matter? Just let it all go. Fight the good fight, but don’t let it follow you home. Come in from the night, the cold and the dark; you’ve taken feeling discomfort and to being an art.   Whatever; just do whatever you want. We’ll be here when it all falls apart. Cleaning […]

Saving The World and Me First

Knowing what is right and doing what is right; I don’t think the two ideas could be more different.   Sure, I know you’re drowning, but saving you is another matter altogether.   It requires me being involved. It requires me being accountable for the outcome. It requires me to relinquish my seat as the […]

In All Of It

I have 2 eyes that see all ways, always and never languish. I have one tongue that is never done turning my insides in any language.   I have loved all and been loved in return. In any moment, I am death come in the morning to everyone some time or other.   I have […]

Subtlety

This is forgiveness, such is this bliss. Exposed to the sands and the deeds of my hands. Walked up and down the line with a mind to dig it under, ’til it came upon my mind and I was set afire with wonder.   If it is to be, then let it be in me, […]

The Messiah

I was lost in darkness and you sent a light to find me, for I had lost all, gained nothing and fallen, corrupting my soul; until you showed me something I know was the truth of love and all those other things that seemed so far away, that could only dream of.   Seeking the […]

Giving It

Gave in one final time. Turning my back on all I’ve ever been, choosing you, choosing life. Walking away from sickness and pain and I don’t feel the same.   Take away my mind. Take away me. Break the chains of my sorrow, setting me free.   From time to time I have waded deeper […]
