California skies soared overhead
as bike wheels screeched
on heated pavement,
stopping in an instance
at the Marshall Taco Bell.
Our group of hungry 14-year-olds
left no tray untouched.
My brother loo...
The moment is gone too soon.
A step in the right direction, a lesson learned in the wrong.
A leap from the dark, slowly I claw myself back to where I belong.
A bittersweet message in a bottle, graces ...
Ma, Pa and Me...
I remember walking down the street, Swinging holding your hands.
Getting lost in your shadows, Staring in wonder as my life began…
I never felt more loved, I never wanted for anymore....
If only I could find a Time Machine.
I would live the “what could have been”
I would turn back the clock to the past.
Take the days taken for granted and make them last.
I am happy in m...
Under the harsh fluorescent lights, there I sit. Years and years of my life spent up here, all alone yet surrounded by others just like me. In the deafening sound of my own silence, I can only recall ...
On a cold, dank day in Flanders' Fields,
The air turned to fog
As the guns let loose their terrifying load,
And the soil turned to mud,
Sucking and soaking the men to the bone,
The earth took back its...
Memories are sights of life that have been engraved into your mind, may they be little or big, may you need a camera to fully remember them or not. Rather it be a moment that the scent of the river yo...
Let me be a birthday card so that I can touch your heart while you hold my hand.
Let me be a card of confession
whispering in your ear all the things I’m afraid to say.
Let me be a Christmas greeting
In the photo, suspended in time,
the cellophane yellows and peels
in my hands as it is turned
over and over.
The date and description on the back,
the picture on the front,
smiling faces that are froz...
The faculty of perception is manipulated when
Voice’s tremors echoed by a passage wrote by men.
It is only here the city lights grow contrasted to see
and a blind girl bestowed the touch that tickled ...
They called him "The Duke", his triumph was no fluke.
Tall and handsome fella, his fame was like a nuke.
Born in Iowa, grew up in Southern California.
His first big role was in The Big Trail,
Like a t...
At times, it is very difficult to appreciate life and all its possibilities because, let’s face it, it can be hard. Often our old enemy "time" gets in the way and we suddenly realise we are years olde...
Pomegranate juice running down her chin
Ebony eyelashes growing wet with tears
She has been deceived
Even as the bright, bittersweet tang
Plies her ruby-stained tongue with confusion, as
He wakes up around 2:30 on a weekday,
Five PM on a Saturday.
If he has to, he gets up to take a piss
If not, he stays in bed a while longer To jack off.
Once he gets his lazy ass out of bed,
We all have them, some hidden away,
some we know will always stay.
Memories are what make us,
who we really are,
some of them shine like a brilliant star.
Some are the truth,
some came from lie,
Complacency is the leading cause of injury in the workplace. Cut keys too many times without using your gloves and you might get cut.
Put the ladder away improperly and it may collapse on someone.
"I am a mess”
I say, more sure of it than before I was 22
And less sure of why. “I am a mess”
I say, unapologetically, not seeking councel
