I point the finger of judgement at a man who has, through words, and actions, made a family into wreckage; where the only casualties are those who once loved him. Through bluster and rage and words thrown like razors, he carved a swath of bitterness and biting spite through what was his guiding light. He... Continue Reading →
The Ram has slipped from the cleft and has fallen onto the ledge below that overlooks a desolation. He struggles to get to his feet...alone. He will have a mighty job to climb the rocks and, again, see the sun and the summit but now he lies in torment. He raises himself in pain, to... Continue Reading →
Three are drawn, open and ready to fill themselves with abandoned relationships and lost bonds; Two carved of wood appear, writing in words invisible that life is distrupted and made less through conflict; A mighty King arrives, his word drawn and held in a cold, unforgiving hand, saying " Woe to you...your inner frost will...

We spent last night destroying one another; a family torn in four parts and never to mend it seems. Words, like daggers, thrown and stabbing deeply infecting each of us with the venom of spite, guilt, and rage This morning will not bring dawn but, instead, bring the darkness of silence and unsaid resentments. There... Continue Reading →
Why can't they just do what they need to? It's homework--not Rocket Science! Just do what you need to--PLEASE!!! It's ending my sanity- I just want to scream and drive around ALL THE TIME to get AWAY from the ENDLESS SCREAMING and constant WAR between us--- I have had ENOUGH of being the BAD GUY...

In regards to our esteemed Leader of the "Free World", I state the following unreservedly and with full candor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZUDBWCJUhw&has_verified=1
The following represents the views and opinions of myself; any connection with individuals, living or orange; is purely non-coincidental and is, in fact taken directly from the list of grievances against a certain King at the time it was written....and apply now. As in, RIGHT NOW. Substitutions have been made to NOT protect the innocent... Continue Reading →

Walking on the road away from the disheartened, wreckage of the past and it's memories and looking at life, again, with eyes on the horizon-- Inside my soul, a need for change and a lust for it's touch, as heated and impassioned as a first kiss at bedtime... I must make this new life come... Continue Reading →
With a dark promise, behind clouds of pewter and wisps of the trails of spirits, the moon rises and sets it eye upon the fields and furrows below; The trees, almost barren of the leaves of Summer twist and writhe in the cold , bleak wind and call out "Farewell" to the weary traveler who...

The Ram finds himself with renewed spirits and finding his balance from the cleft to the rocks below; He is climbing still to new heights of unknown destiny-- but still he strides, onward and with hope towards the summit and horizon so close to his reach; and leaves the crags and peril behind him....
Four appear. shining and upright; waiting to fill themselves with balance and fateful dreams of renewal-- A shining Knight, mounted upon his Steed, reversed, shouts to all "Let Us Away!", pointing towards new challenges and the danger within them,,, while riding slowly and with care; A Pale Rider on a sallow mare appears, and brings...

Stepping out of Poetryville for a brief moment as I find myself looking at 30 days of sobriety. I still want a drink so much it eats away at my most inner being; that's how strong a grip it still has on me. But; when you start to become someone that you aren't when you... Continue Reading →
The Ram has choices on the rocky clefts that he must now choose to follow; one path leads to a field of briar that beckons but means great pain... The second path is narrow and short as a fleeting breeze, but leads, with care-- to a new resting place where peace may be found. The... Continue Reading →
The four, round and shining, signal in their reflection rebirth and the start of new life; the wooden one says to me "Ready yourself for the door is wide for you and is fleeting"; Then enters the Page with sword held high calling out "Awaken! Change draws nigh, look into the glass and see your... Continue Reading →
Perception is a fleeting mistress, It leaves it's kiss for a short, sweet, moment and then is gone; leaving an imprint on the heart, and opening the eyes of the soul to ponder the world and it's many realities; It opens doors to dimensions of change that all say "come and see"...
I have stretched forth my wings to once again climb to the heavens; a fear of falling ever at my back... But, I must take the leap from the nest and act as those who soar with the breeze of chance and space, and place time behind me to once again, face a new world... Continue Reading →
Down to my bones and through the depths of my core; I am weary... My spirit is that of a fledgling bird, aching to fly but with no strength to soar... It shall pass as all things do, and will give rise to a new dawn and a new hope... I must away the hours... Continue Reading →
He rises above his current path that has led to failure, and shame; and looks to the crossroads at last to see a new turn, a new sign of sun in the gloom; and though he has been thrown away, he has been reclaimed and redeemed, trash no longer.... And no longer cast off into... Continue Reading →
