THE FIRES OF ISHKATEH (ISH-KA-TAY)
Along the Appalachian Trail,
A bonfire pungent, burn’n,
Turns smoke, to dreams of fantasy,
I find my thoughts are turn’n
To council fires...
Child of the beach,
Child of the desert
The wind threatens
the sand castles
shaped by my fingers
Time spares no one,
The years pass
But the echo and the tune
Clinging to ledge
Stretching blood scratched finger tips out
On hard cold stone
Gusts trying to pry me away
In the darkness
Clinging to you
A shale of scripts and...
my love sleep,
I revel in
the exquisite and
impossible truth that
she has chosen to be mine.
Such things are just not supposed to
be for someone like me, someone who
Always so independent until the end,
Even your death subscribed to your own wishes.
When we knew you were sick,
No doubts remaining, a
Few of us lucky ones had...
The sunset is now just a daring orange flare beyond the
treeline. I drive along a back road,
100 miles down the massive levee from home, in the ancient
floodplains of the river...
I lost myself in the moment
Amid the rush of memories past
Bile and tears were both rising
My heart was beating fast
Then I saw the whole of me
As if with my two eyes
Several people have messaged me asking me to repost this piece. Enjoy!

Did I ever tell you I feel physically great
And without you I'm more tempted
With you I feel more capable
And it's funny to you I have a tempter
In case you...
Waiting for you
Each second seems like a minute, an hour
Waiting for you
Little Billy at number 23 grows another two inches
Whilst Mum's roses wilt and die
Petals on the floor
This is a little crappy piece I did whilst feeling bad about myself, but it helped me feel better. It's called Hello Katie. Enjoy and tell me what you think about it.

you wonder why and you always get the same answer
"it's not all black and white and you're to young to understand"

This is my life, where I was born and raised and grew and broke. This is the ABC's of my life. "A" as in anxiety for the feeling I got in my stomach when "B" as in bystander's...
Its time to take a trip. Time cast a rolling shadow. My ride may not be a horse on four hooves. Its a 110 cubic Inch on two wheels and black and chrome.

I'm not going, not after my face got caught up to your nose ring

Siren of the Deep
I find your footprints that lead this rocky shore. Scraps of your clothing tossed apart without sanity. Cold hearts of treason that runs amok. The pure madness...
I saw the was you looked at her
That demon in your eyes
She told me that she loved you true
Despite my being wise
"She's my best friend" I calmly warned
"You hurt her...
Lovely lines of blurry blood. Clean and clear cuts slathered with the liquid thick and messy, and oh how it reminded her of mud. Dirty heart and damned soul, only seemingly fit her...
hey guys a first poem posted online. id lik positve criticism.
ur mind stored plots
ur eyes held dark mystery
ur nose sensed fear
ur words icy cold
ur chest bares marks...
what died inside of this heart
left claw marks on the walls
a smile reserved for a precious moment
be ready when she calls
picnic with me in the moonlight
as I read you my darkest secrets
let's lose ourselves in poetry
hoping to find answers in reality
dance with me in the moonlight
as I whisper my...
glowing embers fall
frozen in time
to the grave
once open hearts
poetry of a loaded gun
emotional bird shot
bleeding my mind
Where giant clouds rollover blue skies of dazzling sunlight
playing hide and seek
with glow and rain
we are the winners every time
the prism colours arch across the sky
There’s a window in my head
That only I can see
It is the gate way to my fantasy
There I am a hero, master and king
I am capable of doing anything
When I dwell there the world...
Peeling tears away
Forget me knots
banter in vain
oh give me words!
spilling onto the page
my crimson prose
end this rage
to reveal the heart
