Injecting balladry

like it’s a antiseptic

Using your tiny

carry on thesaurus

to captivate the innocent

Swallowing cups of caffeine

to fill a concave

wretched black heart

Drunken saliva dripping

down your male oversized chin

Sunken and carved out

slurping the Devil’s wine

Casting judgement

from an empty phantom

A mindless hippocrate

Not realizing you are

an uneducated stalker

I saw vibrating rainbows draped over a slippery moon. I saw glitter on 20 x 20 frames. I could hear the grand piano playing in the deserted mountains. I saw a glimpse of red in the clouds of rage. I saw rivers of champagne. I witnessed sorrow hiding deep into the caves. I saw the sun bellow. I saw bouquets of silence seek Cupid’s harp. I fell into the well creeping behind the parade of jesters. I saw the edges of souls bleed tears of joy. I saw emptiness screech. I felt the warmth of diamond shaped hearts. I found a bottle of spilled ink and the words were never ending. I heard trumpets around the bend. I saw blank pages but words rattled and spoke like gospel. I discovered the path of humanity. I caressed the gentleness of others. I climbed into the vortex of raw emotions. I felt the infinite words in ink overflow within myself.


Condescending aficionado
speaks from a barbaric abyss
Staking claims and forecasts
reeking of gin and vermouth

He paws
He claws
Relentless and crude

Staring at her fishnet stalkings
waiting for her lipstick stains
delicious Coca Cola bottle curves
Inhaling her wicked scent

He probes
He pushes
Distasteful and off putting

Sucking in helium and lithium
personality rising higher than balloons
Viewing others as outcasts
engaging as a insidious vulture

He commands
He yells
Unforgiving and selfish

Demanding perverse declarations
Instilling superficial values
She crawls away from the blood hound
gazing at the sign of bittersweet crossroads

She kicks
She cries
Embracing the freedom

Clarity settles around my ankles

Shackles tightly circling my wrists

A opaque warrant for the end

In arial font harshly awakens

crawling dismembered spiders

around my distant coffin

No eulogy or words will be spoken

Just an empty room of formalities

Guests sitting out of obligation

As time passes as I’m alive

Leave me in the closet with

the laughing faded skeleton

Playing chess with my demons

No tears for the desolate child within

Walk away from my numb ghost

Shaking hands with apathy

Disheartened by those who make

false claims and promises

Leave me abandoned in the dusk

****

Check out my new book!

Direct and forward

A rabid salivating tongue

Deafening from silence

Gripping to the slick

and grapevine of truth

Lacking minimal patience

A vicious tightrope

Brash and Harsh

Invigorating sincerity

Zero fluctuation

Pledging to the straight arrow

The outspoken prophet

residing in a palace of lights

shimmering faith reverberates

Black and white

photographs pluck

the tears from my eyes

Etched memories

never dissolve or fade

cherishing every kiss

Reminiscing the last

fifty years of preciousness

Embracing every second

Through the heights of

the golden mountains

and blackout valleys

Love never once

sat in the shade

In sadness and melancholy

I have to leave

Mulholland Drive tonight

I spent a lifetime

in this brick castle

with my beloved queen

May she rest In Peace

as my heart is in pieces

This is really good! I love this!

Stella

Gliding across broken glass

In her eighteenth century garb

Dragging hot coals

Igniting flames in her path

Submissive demons bow down to her

She spews her unforgivable sins

Her actions show no remorse

She sharpens her tongue for more precise slices

She pushes the almighty with an unfelt shove

Her name is sprinkled in the King James like poison fourteen times

Her wrists and ankles adorned with us breakable chains

She carefully makes her bed in the lake of fire

Deteriorating eyesight

Cockeyed perception

Agitations foaming at the mouth

Removing the garbage

Calming the whispers

Torturing the roars

Sighing to the bee sting

Bleeding from the dry lips

Masking undertones

Streaming suspicions

Cutting the grapevines

Screaming murmurs

Bumbling suggestions leach

Rumors spread like a cold

Unsubstantiated truths

I will acknowledge

that I had an affair

I love metaphors

creating imaginary worlds

A written tapestry

Seduced by alliteration

I had an affair

with the craft of language

I’m enthralled by

the layers and symbolism

I’m engaged

to a place to release my tension

I’m in a atmosphere

where I’m understood

I’m in a whirlwind

where I’m forever lost

I’m pulled in

by the legacy of poets

Desiring to fulfill

a long winded fantasy

The affair will continue….

Roaming the uneven concrete

like a slobbering bloodhound

A vagabond meandering

through a decorated parade

Mischievous and unorthodox

Offensive and crude

Admittance of displacement

A lurking deadly reptile

Preaching to be resentful

Disfigure emotionally of others

A rancid phlegm among millions

The sauntering antichrist

(1st Verse)
It’s the last day of November,
The leaves are twisting in the wind.
All the years have passed by silently,
Tarnished memories seep in my skin.
Words only stick to my jaded tongue,
I don’t know how to unlock the door.
My feet are feeling like a thousand pounds,
Something inside can take the beating a little more.

Chorus:
I’m crawling on crippled boulevard,
Haven’t seen the rain or felt the falling stars.
There isn’t any rainbow miles away in sight,
Chained to the dark staring at the candlelight.

(2nd Verse)
It’s the last day of December,
The snowflakes are melting on my scars.
All the years have passed by in fear.
Burning photographs wasn’t all that hard.
Words only get stuck in my throat,
I don’t have the key to open up the door.
My hands are wrapped up in the past,
Something inside can take the punches a little more.

Chorus:
I’m crawling on crippled boulevard,
Haven’t seen the rain or felt the falling stars.
There isn’t any rainbow miles away in sight,
Chained to the dark staring at the candlelight.

Bridge:
I cry a little harder,
When I know the answers are in front of me.
I cry a little harder,
When I’ve closed my eyes and don’t believe.
I cry a little harder,
When I know my soul is faded black.
I cry a little harder,
When I know that this pain is meant to last.

(2x) Chorus:
I’m crawling on crippled boulevard,
Haven’t seen the rain or felt the falling stars.
There isn’t any rainbow miles away in sight,
Chained to the dark staring at the candlelight.

To care is to have patience

To appreciate you have to lose something

To love you have to treasure seconds

To forgive you have to be human

To grow you have to make mistakes

To be kind you have to listen

To be human you have to open up your heart

To gain perspective open up your eyes

To be ignorant close your ears

To be special just be yourself

To live is not to be afraid

To be alive you have to learn to feel

(Verse 1)
She only lets me half way in,
She doesn’t know where it all begins,
I’m sitting here waiting for the crash.
She only lets me see the picket fence,
She doesn’t know where it all went,
I’m sitting here staring at the past.
You play me like an acoustic guitar,
What should be easy is so damn hard.

Chorus:
Chards of lies in my frozen hands,
Dreams of love sinking in quicksand,
Secondhand wishes are never heard.
Walls of anger drowning in my ocean,
Lost and confused in all of my emotions,
Secondhand wishes are disappearing words.

(2nd Verse)
She only lets me see a ray of light,
She doesn’t know it’s not worth the fight,
I’d rather put your needs in front of mine.
She only lets me see a shade of warmth,
She doesn’t know what the future has in store,
I’d rather you see what you were trying to find.
You play like me like a southern violin,
Hopefully you can see no one wins.

Chorus:
Chards of lies in my frozen hands,
Dreams of love sinking in quicksand,
Secondhand wishes are never heard.
Walls of anger drowning in my ocean,
Lost and confused in all of my emotions,
Secondhand wishes are disappearing words.

Bridge:
I’m not afraid of the lightning in the dark,
I’m not afraid of the deep cut in my heart.
I’m not afraid of feeling the pouring rain,
I’m not afraid of the winds of change.
I’m only afraid of becoming numb…
I’m only afraid of what we will become.

Chorus:
Chards of lies in my frozen hands,
Dreams of love sinking in quicksand,
Secondhand wishes are never heard.
Walls of anger drowning in my ocean,
Lost and confused in all of my emotions,
Secondhand wishes are disappearing words.

“Can I help you ma’am?”  His smile rang friendly.

“Hi, yes.” She hesitated, “My name is Autumn. I’m renting an apartment here. I’m sorry to bother you so late.”  She straightened her wrinkly top and fiddled with a gnawed off thumbnail before saying, “I’m just arriving, and I was wondering if you know of anyone that I could pay to help me unpack?”

“Oh, hey, yes, I heard about you!”  His handsome smile grew causing his ears to lift, and a cute little crease to form just below the right cheekbone. “Apt 22 right?”

“Yes, that’s right.”

“Howdy then, ma’am, I’m Jeremy.”

It was a very informal introduction yet he insisted on shaking her hand. His palm was big and his fingers were slightly calloused. A heavy free hand slapped her on the shoulder causing her entire body to jolt. He seemed like a very outgoing young man. A few…
