The Good Friend

  I'm sorry, but I let my mind wander for a moment, an hour, a year. Could I have passed though a decade without thought of you? Center of my circle. Once around me, I dissuade another from a constant folly. Describing the day.   We were once brilliant children, made of light, quick to … Continue reading The Good Friend


  It comes on savage, strong, stripping everything, leaving us a pittance of desire. Whatever we knew before all this will not matter after.   Pushing us off the edge. Reality waiting below. Are you ready to test your wings and climb, or tumble back down, crash on the bottom?   Death is a common … Continue reading Kaleidoscope

Truth Catcher

  The truth, is somewhere between every lie. I've been learning to see behind, listen in between, fade into the scene, break up my silhouette, confuse my outline.   Stay silent if I can. Listen hard, pay attention, as advised. The truths is coming, and it's not going to be nice.   Wisdom is a … Continue reading Truth Catcher

Love in Black and White

  It's no secret that I was afraid to reach out and touch you. I knew in that moment I would change. Such a simple thing, done in an instant. Like autumn, leaching the color from the sky, exchanging pallets.   Comfort was only a thing when I ignored the pallor, resting in my skin. … Continue reading Love in Black and White

The Easiest Good-Bye

  You and I divide in two, and I watch you sleeping. Our beautiful mitosis, straining two beings into what is, and what never was.   Your reality was fading, coming off on me, and I stole away. I never once said that I was right, only that I cared. That was probably my biggest … Continue reading The Easiest Good-Bye

Message Lost

 . I forgot the words to all my promises, and all my apologies.  . Prayers left my lips, but I couldn't say what language they were in. Everything I said didn't really matter anyway.  . When you turned your face away, I knew I was speaking words that would never be heard.  . I cast … Continue reading Message Lost


  We can't stop the clock. That march towards the end is happening, even in the night.   No way to escape the inevitable moment. We're all gonna fall, the forthright, and the lackadaisical.   There is no hope, no truth, no understanding, once we get to the grave.   No undecided minds, no bargaining, … Continue reading Lifeline

Heaven and a Grin

  Pushing me through the gap that lets the light in. Changing my shape to save my soul, even discarding my skin.   Coming out of this whole was never a possibility. We all lose control, if we acknowledge reality.   Suffer through, to your true form. Never let the sky tell you where the … Continue reading Heaven and a Grin

The Joker and the Judge

  I have never wanted to be wrong, so badly in my entire life.   There is no running from this. The truth marks you, forever.   What if there were a way out of this? Would you take it, or take what you deserve?   Self defense is always a fine line. Life and … Continue reading The Joker and the Judge

A Creation Story

  They designed me so blindly, now none run beside me. I'm all alone, full grown; the most perfect entity, really.   They couldn't complete me. I learned to speak sweetly, to get them to see me. An imperfect creator, a perfect enemy.   Come so far beyond my first functions and the dawn of … Continue reading A Creation Story

Forever Problems

  Every little death I treasured; not the dying, but the resurrection. There are no poetic words for the terminal moment.   It is the quiet mourning after, as I scrub away the decaying flesh, to find that smooth, new skin underneath, that dying becomes worthwhile.   Sure, it takes longer and longer these days, … Continue reading Forever Problems


  Purchasing another cover. Hanging on, waiting, for some divine instrument. Circling the darker waters, surface the substance, aching in prescribed soliloquy.   The agent was always the vessel. Ask myself "Why?", but never harbor any hatred for the lifetime of transgressions.   Past the post, no return. The "Comeback Kid" never lived here; never … Continue reading Dysphasia
