The Diagnosis

They took his proclamation of enlightenment as a sign of madness and he was treated with derision and imprisoned for his crime.   He claimed he saw the light, but they thought he was there to shine and they were all blind.   He was no problem, but a prophet always brings, followers with him … Continue reading The Diagnosis

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

Praying To The Wrong Sky

I've known the cold. I've held the faded and the empty. I've spent a lifetime getting up off my knees, but is it the whisper of fate? Is this the crucible that tempered me?   Sometimes I'm thinking that I have had my head in the clouds; praying to the wrong sky. Sometimes I turn … Continue reading Praying To The Wrong Sky

The Bridge

There is a bridge at the end of the world and none who cross return. Tales are told of the other side, but none who tell them know for sure.   There is a part of each of us that stays after we're gone, a piece of dust, the universe allows to linger on.   … Continue reading The Bridge

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 … Continue reading Early Morning Visitation

Strong Foundations

Pop smoke and bug out amidst the confusion. Escape and evade, do whatever it takes to break contact. Go to ground and disappear into the indigenous population.   Back tracking is not an option. Besides, there's nothing waiting back there, except the same old enemies. Always an aggressive push forward. Take the next step and … Continue reading Strong Foundations

From Dark Before

I was born when the universe was dark. I was shaped when the Earth was cold. I was born by the mother of the void and the father of singularity. Birthed in silence before the light was spoked in to existence; I witnessed the first dividing line.   I am the last of the everything. … Continue reading From Dark Before

Unobtainium

Freedom isn't free. This ought to be common knowledge, for by now everyone must have noticed the rivers of blood are getting knee deep.   If freedom must come from the barrel of a gun, then let that gun be a human heart and let that barrel be a beautiful mouth that speaks the truth … Continue reading Unobtainium

Solstice Reborn

Come out of your chrysalis into the soft light of amber bright Summer Solstice sky.

Under this … Continue reading Solstice Reborn

Uncontainable

Take the chances, Make them worth the price of failing.

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 … Continue reading Saving The World and Me First

That’s Gratitude For Ya!

I am rising, above the garbage, above the flesh; uncompromising. Got to write it out, sing it out, scream it out. Let it get the best of me? No - I don't think so.   For crying out loud, it's you who set it up this way, made every facet of the game and bitch … Continue reading That’s Gratitude For Ya!

Ocean of Reflection

Derivative, a little piece of everything is what we are. Somehow we live with our eyes turned inside so far.   We don't see past you or me, can't reconcile this separation, together we might become something more; all cowering in what has gone before. Fear of pain and abandonment, we cling to the words, … Continue reading Ocean of Reflection
