BETWEEN THE WHAT IF’S…

Between the what if’s…

That magical dimension,

Akin to delusions or psychoses.

Where one holds to a tiny thread of subjective reality,

A confirmed impossibility,

Only in the realm of gentle probability,

From the mind of one, single, beautiful, intelligent, creative, unique, human being…

Who’s to say any of us are wrong?

Friend from Magical Garden…


First thought, what is this creature?!

Second thought, where does it live?!

Third thought, I want to pet it!! 

It’s a bundle a colorful, furry bliss!!

I see the caption, thank God it’s there.

Portland, The Magical Garden.

Of course this is where my new squishy lives! 

Good name for something this awesome.

 With Sway…


Life’s path, shaky.
Edges contort with uncertainty.
Mistaking vertigo for safety,
Due to its familiarity.

One step at a time, mere cliche.
Each step is taken with sway,
Time is set on perpetual replay.
No forward progression, continual delay.

Eyes half open for fear of the truth.
Masked reality with everything to prove.
Lucid while dreaming, collecting real wounds.
Questioning the concept of being bulletproof.

Merge With The Sea…

Screen Shot 2017-10-25 at 11.07.45 PM

I wish to be one with sea.

To leave this life behind.

For each crash upon hardened stone,

To be a victory for the tide.

I want to dissolve into the ocean,

My sanctuary and confidant.

Kind keeper with watchful eyes as I grew,

Merge my life with yours, take this broken heart…

He Chose Her…


You came to me as promised,

Like many secret nights before.

With a single rose and, those heartbreak eyes.

Which could only be yours.

 

Your strong embrace entrancing,

I breathe in your manly essence.

Your hands encompass my body,

Yet I feel you restraining your lust.

 

Your kiss lacks its passion,

A lifeless vessel you’ve become.

Going through the motions,

I’ve lost you, my love…

 

The day has finally come,

I sense your goodbye.

I feared she would win out,

The dreams of what could be were a lie.

 

I must go on without you,

With this emptiness I know.

I can’t begin to mend the bleed,

Now that you chose to go…

Above The Weather…

Under the weather,

Seeking to ascend.

Into the silken blue,

Where infirmity ends.

Chicken soup and love,

Lots of rest and drink.

Transport me to the land of healing,

Above the weather I wish to be.

Insanity…


Ever hit one of these,

So hard your nose bleeds, 

And u swear you won’t do it again?

You pick yourself up.

You dust yourself off.

And rev up the ole’ flame within.

You’ve grabbed no new tools,

You’re going faster than before,

And you’re head is straight up your ass.

Not a glamorous sight,

But appearance aside…

You’ve learned to fail with class!

The same brick wall.

The same barricade.

Will sanity ever win? 

Perhaps you’ll bust it down, 

Or maybe go around, 

Or simply repeat… ad infinitum.
