Floating Driftwood

Ocean beach you do not lull me
with your calming waves no more.
My body splinters, crashing
upon these nubs of jagged rocks.
I'm a floating piece of driftwood
that reached an empty shore.
The blazing sun, a leather whip
beats down hard on me.
Embedded iRead full post »

"The Mighty Crest"

Those thorns that have your heart bleed
will make you the more stronger.
For each cut that goes far as deep
shall make you last all the longer.
It's in the final hour
when your sunken heart
lies heavy upon your fallen chest
and lowly is your spirit
so shall you reach thRead full post »

"Glorious Dance"

Now that it's ended
though it's not what either of us

had intended
I'll lay it to rest.
I tried so hard, surely
I've given my best.
But sometimes no matter
what you do
in order for things to work
it has to take two.
 
I'm stronger to let it go.
I couldn't keep going on
when it was hurting… Read full post »

"The Crystal Guise"

Nobody sees the real me.
I'm not pain free

behind my disguise.
Nobody knows for certain
stuck behind the iron curtain
where the other lies.
You can't tear down these walls.
What befalls
the crystal guise?
 
Nobody hears my crying.
I'm dying
down deep inside.
Nobody knows you're hurting.

"DRY RUN"

You live your life without protest
but your heart's still on the run.

And your head, it doesn't rest
when it's held tight under the gun.
I try to live with the ambiguity.
But my life's one continual rerun.
Nothing interupts the continuity.
Must we always be held in this dry run?

"When You Live By The Sword"

The dark knight has held me captive
in some sacred role.

But I'm not that well adaptive
because I won't be pigeon holed.
I'm more than a pawn
on his chessboad!
Another one gone,
when you live by the sword.
If you don't plan a different strategy
you'll fall by your own accord!
The disparate pieces
are lining up… Read full post »

"What Is A Rich Man?"

What is a rich man?
Owning every kind of luxury
that one can?
What about providing need
instead of
filthy, hungry greed?
I'd rather be a poor man.
But I don't think that anyone
would understand!
If  I live my life well
I don't think anyone could tell!
Because I am not surrounded
by all the superficiaRead full post »

"Your Debut"

Freedom is something
you give to yourself.

You got to learn
to trust yourself.
Your the only one
holding yourself down.
Isn't it time for you
to get off the ground?
 
Just spread your wings.
Learn to fly!
Are you afraid
to reach that high?
No one can take it
away from you.
I think it's time

ON LOVE.......

I am no expert on the matter of love but feel I have learned enough to contribute my 2 cents! I've only had 3 relationships in my life and as I reflect on them on this rainy afternoon I felt the need to share it with you.
 
The first relationship was whatRead full post »

"Little Reprieve"

There's no place to hide
when you wear your heart outside.

Vulnerable is the one who sends
a purple heart that far extends.
 
There's little reprieve
when your hearts on your sleeve.
It's inside out for sure,
exposing the pain you must endure.
 
There's no place to run
when yo… Read full post »

"Having You Here With Me"

Walking on a sunny afternoon.
Talking, time slips away too soon.
Something's warm here besides the weather.
Happiness is bringing us together.
No place I'd rather be
than having you here with me.
 
Thinking when I'll see you again.
Remembering of our time until then.
I'm flying higher than a bird oRead full post »

"This Little Waif"

Though the past is gone
it still carries on.

But it's deep inside
under buried pride.
When you're your only friend
you must defend
the wounded heart.
So you play it smart.
 
If I put myself out there
how would I fare?
I've been all alone.
Has it really shown?
Inside of myself
I could not excel.
Yet it kep… Read full post »
The anger hides
the emptiness inside.
But if the truth did show

I guess you would know
of the displaced self.
When there's no one else
who could take control
as I hand my soul.
 
Though I might be blind
I am not resigned.

What I do not know
shall not be my foe.
I'm too strong to quit
or gi… Read full post »

"THE MAVERICK"

To Jim With Love!

 A strong defender
A rebel mender

A man who stands
just for the cause
who fought for his right
without praise or applause
A noble one of his breed
who he himself put aside
for others in need.
One who seeks truth
completely unbound
and fearlessly follows the path
no matter thRead full post »

"The Planes Of My Own Depth"

When I'm inside myself
I almost lose my breath.
I'm reaching into the planes
of my own depth.
You might be standing there
but I'm miles away.
My head's not with you;
my thoughts have strayed.
And you're wondering why
they left.
I'm cast in a mold;
you only see me as bereft.
And you're seaching
the receRead full post »

"All You Have To Do Is Wait"

Is there too much piling on your plate?
Is the time for you growing late?

Think you're never going to set things straight?
All You have to do is wait.
 
Troubles seem to inflate.
I know the strain of all that weight.
You mustn't let that dictate.
All you have to do is wait.
 
Don't let something… Read full post »

"STRETCHED BEYOND ITS MEANS"

How much do we have to  stretch?
We're pulled apart at both extremes.

This elastic is going to snap,
from being stretched beyond its means.
It's so tightly drawn, so taut.
Have we each abandoned our own dreams,
that we can't even hold our shape now.
Losing e… Read full post »

"LOVE IS ALL AROUND YOU"

How is it worth we measure?
In simple moments to treasure.

God has sent his love.
Why do we fall short of
hope and expectations?
Look at Gods creations!
Are we so consumed with duty
that we refuse to see the beauty?
 
Love is all around you.
Look and it will astound you.
The birds sing you their… Read full post »

"High On Blue Mountain"

We climbed high on blue mountain.
And I was so afraid to fall.

My hands, slippery skins of peel
on the face of that stone wall.
So I climbed with apprehension.
And the air kept growing thin.
I was choking on my own distraction,
fighting hard against the blustery wind.
 
I do… Read full post »

"It's Something To Be Refined"

In looking for some parity

 I'm hoping to gain clarity.
It's not often plain.
Its very measure hard to explain.
I think that we need levity,
some light-heartness, some brevity.
The weight of it holds us down;
it's breadth is so profound.
I think its very existencRead full post »

"That's What Makes The Mystery"

I don't think we can simplify
what we are; don't it seem?

So many people amplify
just one aspect of us that they deem.
We're so much of a complexity
and such is still left undefined.
It draws on the perplexity
in other peoples minds.
Yet that's what makes the mystery!
We're so unique,… Read full post »

"IT'S OURSELF WE ARE HURTING"

Why do we beat ourself senseless
and cover with pretense?

So scared and defenseless,
erecting walls at our own expense.
Then hardened by the artillery,
we hide and we cower
searching for validity.
Yet we'll never find the power
because our insides our sour.
 
We've this heavy… Read full post »

"DIRTY LOAD"

I'm some dirty laundry
Spinning
through each cycle
without end.
Tossed
in filthy water
Impounded
In a machine I am penned.
Just a dirty load
Floating
particles are
swimming loose.
Shaken
the machinery
banging on the floor
like a rickety caboose!
Put through the wringer.
Thrown
and thrashed
all about.
Hitting every… Read full post »

"CYCLONE IN MY MIND"

Like a sandstorm in the desert
you're as blind as you can be.
The wind is whipping through you.
Your eyes are crusted over; 
there's no way you can see.
It's spinning you in circles
like a cyclone in your mind.
The harder you fight to get through it
the tighter it shall wind.
Stranded in a mass ofRead full post »

"I'LL OPEN UP MY EYES"

It's such a painful process
the way I tend to grow.

No matter that I'm cautious
it still affects me so!
The more that I put into it
the less I have an out.
So I pledge my life to it.
Yes! I'm that devout.
Each hurt a new lesson,
one to slowly learn.
Each path a discretion,
a choice… Read full post »
