Breathing Lies – a poem

Dissatisfaction in the house of the maker Breeds discord, the dys root so applicable That we’d rather not say, those half truths Flatly lie in the face of adversity unknown, Words and hearts unshed, burdened dryly By what we deem necessary, silent torture. *

Time Midst Maze – a poem

Time winds, unique perceptions changed By those illimitable factors, stresses, More than structure can account for Or would be allowed to, the highest Roads to success paved with bodies Of goodly intentions slain, their strength Taken. * We wonder where the days go to, worlds Passed on by as we sink deeper, futurity Known and...

Mortal Aspirations – a poem

Self View – a poem

Repetition in the catacombs of memory Render too much strange by familiarity To count, to rely upon, to decide for What differences exist, which separates Self from soul, body harshly disparate. *

Subsistence on the bitterness of tried anodynes Is a reality all too common for many, opiate Wisdom told in rates of itching addiction, drawn Faces tired from the attentions of coadjutive creatures Of pain and all that it reaches, nerve deep within. * Dank dreams in the grip of absolution, delirious Wondering amidst pressures and...
