Upside Down

I’m upside down My feet in the air, Head on the ground. Wasn’t supposed to be this way. Didn’t realize I was that attached. Didn’t see she was my center. Now I’m detached, Free falling with no clue What to do, to chase or… Continue Reading “Upside Down”

Hard to miss you

Last week Grandpa passed. I wrote this poem for him while flying out to Utah. I would have posted earlier, but it’s just been crazy about week. Grandpa, It’s hard to miss you when you’re still here In the jovial nature of loved ones… Continue Reading “Hard to miss you”

Goo

Basalt core covered in ice, the heart was frozen through, But I forgot how frigid I’d become until again there was you. I hemmed and I hawed, yet it did no service, the heat was given off from you. Through and through I melted… Continue Reading “Goo”

Into The Darkness

I ran under the gaze of Nocturne sleep walking into her bosom. Street lights and headlights lit the way as I stepped swiftly, aggressively, Until my legs ached, and with the heat of blood and exertion stretched easily. Into the darkness I ran as… Continue Reading “Into The Darkness”

Writing Progress – None

The Void

There was a dark pit inside my soul, and it grew and it grew as people fed it so. Through loneliness, betrayal, through time and paranoia, that dark pit grew into a void, and I looked into it. The more I looked upon that… Continue Reading “The Void”

How am I

How am I? I am pained Every day when you’re not here Every week when I wake up to an empty pillow Every month when I’m reminded I’m alone by other couples Every year when I can’t find someone better I am determined Every day I… Continue Reading “How am I”

The Blood is Hot

The blood is hot, Gives off steam. Need an outlet, But desires are lean. I see the candy, Just want a lick, But I am denied, And like a bomb I tick. My sight, it blurs, Covered in lust I can only beg, Bury… Continue Reading “The Blood is Hot”
