  • Excerpt from my new story

    He was always there; and never quite. Burning flowers in a fragile vase, turn to the white walls and gasp at the vacuum. The room was his soul, mirrored in each stroke of white, in each dab of cream-colored paint on dry walls. Painting his blood on his dry skin. Pale skin, blue veins firing like cylinders. He was here; yes, stuck in the moment. Waiting for time and space to collide - bring down the fragile walls he had erected over twenty years. Twenty years of sweating over stones, stumbling through the ruins of whatever he called his life. Picking the perfect stones, erecting his perfect life. . .

    Waiting for the tempest.
    . . .but not. Even the stones had betrayed him. He could have spent a hundred years and been no better than now.
    Cream-colored walls in the vacuum. In and out of time.
    He needed to open the window.
    There was a body in the backyard. Fool that he was, he wanted her close; oh, so close. He wanted her close, didn’t wanna forget her. Grow flowers on the spot, smell her. Instead, the flowers burned in the vase.
    She had told him she wanted to be cremated. One airless night, when the drapes lay like a shroud. She had told him; she had told him her hopes and dreams - then.
    She had burnt them down. I want to be cremated.
    He hadn’t done it. He couldn't do it.
    So she lay, under the ground - under his ground. So she lay, buried. And all the while his soul screamed for release. Every night he opened the drapes; every night hoping for air, and instead, the air bore memories of her. Rocked them slowly to his side till he could smell them.
    God! He needed to open the window.
    Again; he refused to move
    One spring the first flower had grown. Called it the tear plant. No water, spiteful sun, watered by his soul. Burned the flowers - cremated them. He owed her that. Smelled her memories, set her soul free. Allowed it to roam. Hers was the only free one, while his soul was in the walls.
    Never quite there. Never quite felt.
    Blood still on his arm.

  • Whispers of madness-
    Life is what life is, but what does it matter. Life is death. Is death madness? Seeking the lost, lost light, but light matters not, what matters is death.
    Leave me here to brood. I am; I am what you are not, but what you want to be. Leave me to complain of what I know not, but. . .
    What you want. What you want is me to see what life is. And what: what is there to see.
    I am losing myself. Losing myself in whirling dreams. It means nothing. Losing means nothing when there is everything to gain. I feel that life is something I’m missing, but missing seems to be gaining when there is nothing. Am I insane? Insanity is so close to gripping something. Insanity is knowing the world that lives inside cardboard boxes and freight trains. That rushes by at the speed of light and leaves you frozen, stuck to the spot, wondering.
    Age old questions rot like age old things and leave you none the wiser in rotting skin. Feel that? Feel the irony caress you, entice you, lick your most secret spots of indicision with its black forked tongue. Ink bleeds deeper than blood, and like a mirror, reflects you back to a you that you don’t want to see. Philosophical musings are just a way to look at the world and feel as if you can answer questions that questions can’t. Questions breed questions, and then questions, and then nothing. Because to answer a question means to consciously realize you have one. If there is a world, where is it? If this is a dream, why am I not sleeping. I look but shifting sands follow nature, and death follows life.

  • Full of life
    Leave the leafs that fall
    to hide the ground
    sweat over
    seeds and trees
    rotten fruit doesn't make a rotten tree
    falling leaves doesn't mean your falling
    too over two cliffs
    a cliff is just a way to get down
    rock bottom is only a place to rest
    see the sea that nourishes
    bones can break
    but that doesn't mean they're not strong
    leaves fall
    but that doesn't mean the tree is dead

  • Somebody told me they couldn't understand my poetry today. I told them not to try to read into my poetry and fit it into a scheme. Just feel it.

    NewHope Somebody told me today that my poetry is Shakespearean because it has a lot of adjectives…

  • If love could cure
    this pain inside
    And leave us staring through the window of our scars
    Maybe we could see
    what the smudges and cracks refused to show
    in that, there is a world beyond
    our scars
    that's just as scarred
    as us

  • Grapes on a vine.
    Ripening, dropping,
    Sickening, dying.
    Rotting carcasses of grey mush on the ground.
    Let's make wine.
