Just a day like any other
Sun is shining
Doesn’t seem to bother
Cracking back and
Stretching out
Feeling life’s
Unbelievable doubt
Searching for
A brighter thought
Much like the sun
Casting onto every pot
Seems to be this
Dull routine
Wondering what
It all might mean
Picking up my feet
Moving again
Wishing I knew
What I didn’t back then
Though isn’t that
Just how it goes
Making each decision
Because
Nobody
Knows

I guess, every time,
I am to be let go.
I search for the next best.
Consistently looking for,
Replacement or,
Satisfaction & fulfillment.
I just might be,
Addicted to love.
So lonely, not really,
Just feel I need hugs.
Longing for the feeling
One would be needed.
Wanting to receive,
As much as I give.
Overwhelmingly,
Empty.
Yet,
Constantly full.
Can’t find the balance,
Passion give me a pull.

LET IT GO. MOVE ON

I tend to love hard.

The only thing I’ve noticed..
Is that..

I end up being hard to love.

Keep me around
Show me, you dove
I want to know what
Makes you fly
I’m tired of being
The helpful guy
I seem to be
The only one
That helps y’all up
From being done
You came down soaring
Impaling the ground
Stuck in emotion
Feel you’ve been clowned
I’ll come along
And pick you up
Show you more than
Just... “Sup?”
I’m here for
The long run
And seeing you
It’s just begun
As we experience
The life outside
Of innocence
And lust of fun
Kicking back the hopelessness
Vanishing unto bliss
We’ll whisk away
To burn the day
Our love
It strikes
Future say
And then
Of course
There’ll come
A day

Where I’m no use,...

Oh! How the sky falls!
Bleak town’s alive to catch it.
Though dark enough to be blind,
Surprised we’d wake from our splendor.
Lets watch the beautiful darkness,
Not often really seen,
Beauty without brightness,
Often mostly undermined.
So, as cold as the ground can bare,
Or as hot as burned ashes.
Beauty comes in many ways,
For this, is the last one.

You take all your fears,

Then put them back together.

All I want to do is write..

And the only thing,
standing in my way,
is the lack of energy
to pick up the pen.

Poems.
Words.
They form a lot of thought.
Exercising mouth play,
Repeat aloud and jot.
Keeping everything to yourself,
Seems asinine, at best.
Let all those feelings flow,
Burn down all the rest.
Your fears tend to get ahead,
Without warning what’s behind.
Keeping steady hand, in fact.
You never seem to mind.
You let it take control of you,
You give up on your fight.
I’m here to tell you,
You are not wrong.
You’re just not doing
  what is right.

I wish upon every lucky star.

Though falling short,
They feel too far.

Why can I not grasp,
Why do I feel lost?

Life’s laid out before you,
The pieces seem to connect.
Yet every effort made,
Seems to leave you, disconnect.

Listen to that heart of yours.
Knows more than you know.
Keep it hella close to you,
The only way you’ll truly grow.

I don’t know where I’m going,
Neither, where I’m headed.
Slowly reaching out
But closing in.
The fate decides,
Where I land.
Not taking credit,
For what’s at hand.
Only speaking less,
Until I freak out.
Completely lost,
Inside my thoughts.
Wandering now,
Through wanderlust.
I’m speaking towards,
My inner self.

When will I see,
That I need help?

Unworthy.

It’s what is waiting at the end.
A string of hope and strung along.
I feel the need to express myself before I’m taken down.
I keep an eye on my future,
While peaking at the past.
I hurt with such open wounds
They closed once before
Though torn again.
I see an opening
An old stitch,
Frayed a bit.
Maybe some new ideals
May sew up my fears.
Help me be aware
The coming tears.
Being weary of what’s ahead,
Has only left me for dead.

Take it with a grain of salt
The sun beams out
Feeling warmth
Stray leaves fall
Only from the wind
The gusts engulf
The setting sun
A chilly feel
Upon my spine
Whistling winds
And pouring wine
Sit back, relax
Stay awhile

The whistling wind
You call my name
In which to hear

Myself
It seems
Cannot contain
The life at which
You want to claim

I can't seem to express,
What I really need to say.

I get closer to the writing,
I slowly back away.

Letting go of everything,
Seems to be my only fear.

Though I still lay here.
Staring at my ceiling.

Losing grip on sanity.
Wondering, if you,
Truly, know the feeling.

Every night, a new moon rises.
Another helping, I'll take some.

Excusing most the dialogue,
Fill those breaths with air
And silent thrusts.

I've got a lot of heart, it flows,
Such a rush, comes and goes.

Searching for a familiar face;
Your shape takes place.

You always seem to find your way, another interruption into play.

I can't seem to find me,
I can't seem to be lively.

Guarding my love here like an ox. Not many let inside my box.

Though we connect through something vivid now.
A likewise feeling of each other's spiritual power.

Freedom is around the corner,
I just need to look forward.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

The hardest part for me,
As a professional photographer,
Is getting all ready for the day,
Just to sit in front of my iMac,
Even though, I'm always scrolling.

I'm just so overwhelmed.
I have years of work I haven't shown.
Though my bills are so far behind, situations keep putting me further and further into debt and I can't figure out what to focus on.

There is just so many possible ways to go, I can't quite grasp what I truly want or need.
I'm just... so done with 2016.

Yes, I may be liquored up.
The whiskey indeed it speaks to us.

The green, you see, simply fun.
With every puff, I'm less undone.

The booze, it loosens.
The bud, connects us.

Why may I legally blackout,
Though illegally smoke to passout?

But we use it for distraction.
She compliments my worrying,
And I'll take it as attraction.

Boy, it's getting late,
All the ladies asleep away.
Up with no distractions,
Increasing my mind play.

Understanding notions,
Reading all the signs.
I'm hear to write my own terms.
Regardless of the lines.

I speak with my own tongue.
Write with my own hands.
Understanding oneself.
Tight knots at both ends.

Feeding off my mortality.
Increasing my footpath.
Strolling past many scenes,
Staying away from pure wrath.

Come beside me,
Lay awhile.
I don't bite,
I'll caress in style.

It hurts me so,
Deep down to know.
( You'd shake those words,
Brush them off.
Scared of the potency,
They contained the truth.
You didn't know,
Hidden deep within. )
I was right when I said,
"I love you more."

Sitting in my study,
Feeling warmth of fire.
Brushing over my skin,
The heat indeed soothes.

I contemplate my next step.
I forgot about my last step.
Stepping into reality,
Stepping forward, insanity.

Wishful thinking,
I tend to do best.
I'll change my course,
If no time for rest.

You've tread my ocean thoughts.
Tiring, it must be.
Holding your head above water.
Don't drown in my open sea.

Every time the snow,
Dresses my window pane.
I'm stuck inside my "study".
Hoping, one day, to be sane.

I'd sit down in my chair,
At the end of my day.
Looking above, overhead.
Hearing what I have to say.

Crippling thoughts appear,
Slowly consuming each memory.
Listing off each reason,
"Did I do too much for 'me'?"

Honestly, I know the answer,
I caught all of the detail.
You were my paragon,
Perfectly placed not to fail.

Though it did.
I feel lost.
Falling in love,
Always a cost.
