  1. Traveled down paths

    where beauty was mangled

    and misused

    solely for selfish intent

    Knowing where to draw a line


    Having the strength

    of a moments exchange

    redirected focus

    restores mangled beauty

    and does not allow

    hate to reign

    For so long hidden

    as dark is brought to light

    Where eyes recognize truth

    as it pours from lips

    Be a part of re-sculpting beauty

    Restoration of a Needed Kind

    or be bound by those old chains


    Sorry it has been so long! Miss you guys!

  2. She handles the dark

    like a maestro


    Commanding the violins and violas

    to move bow


    As her fingers curl around a moment

    that time cannot erase


    A smile broadens

    across a stark landscape

    and the drums begin to bellow

    to drive the movement

    as time stands still

    With fife raised to lips

    the high pitched tones

    decorate the moment

    festive and light

    While the cellos sad song

    rounds out that moment


    As a pinhole of light

    in a dark hermits lair

  3. A heart upon sleeve

    more precious than gold

    Handled with gentleness and grace

    for the human spectra

    does span greatly

    and my ears are tuned

    to receive kindness

    not hate

    For that, I do not apologize

    when the utmost honesty was conveyed

    crumpled up and thrown away

    So I will wait for you to see

    no lies did cross

    upon these lips

    My heart will walk

    alongside my mind

    as I move forward battling time

  4. That wolf did howl

    cast upon nights glare

    Scanning horizons

    teeth seething with primal form

    drool glistening against the stars

    heavied breathing

    reeling senses

    He enjoys the hunt

    held at the ready

    but when he is in doubt

    devours from inside out

    very few match his strength

    yet in this presence

    he cowers his ears

    and turns tail

    disappearing into the forest

    leaving only the prints of a failed hunt

  5. Raise voice to the heavens above

    Let it sound a quiet as love

    Dark consumes so be aware

    dance about without a care

    All of those struggles we feel

    Only seem... oh so real

    Push back the night

    shine through the day

    you'll make them all

    just fall away

    When things get strange

    and torn apart

    remember how you felt

    from the start

    Tell the heavens no way

    begin moving hand

    gesture a new sound

    with curves and lines

    write away the sands of time

    make it better

    sealed with love

  6. He looked upon himself

    as half the man

    in which the fury on thoughts devour

    as he lay in the empty valley

    No light was cast for him

    No, not for him

    Why could he not see the path?

    The fireflies did not shine

    in his world

    For had they,

    they would have lit the path

    to climb rooted stairs

    up the mountain side

  7. Delivered the message

    cutting through tumultuous times

    Just wanted to hear

    that message

    slicing through futures time

    precision aura hone

    riding the gases of

    absolute zero

    surfing the ice forming provider

    spinning the worlds of time

    waves of exchange

    they come to me

    In the beginning

    they were being pressed

    by outside forces

    so intense the pressure

    my brainiverse sprang into existence

    The heat of those moments

    attempting to push back the bitter cold

    For this my eyes cast

    The zoom tells of worlds not so distant

    that run through me

    searching for that next link

    that joins to make the fabric

  8. The air grew heavy

    laden with dust

    The sun was blocked

    with graying clouds

    For on this day

    the Stars shone bright

    releasing all their

    inner light


    With feet upon rocks

    the journey continued

    on this, the longest day

    Foraged through seas of people

    guided by the bass's undertow

    On into night, finally arriving


    No stars were left to light the night

    and the moon was calling

    for her reflection

    Suddenly they began to arrive

    the neon glow of Fire Flies

    They took to the sky

    owning her night

    lighting the paths

    Granting her sight

  9. This pigeon

    She flies

    upon broken wings

    wind underneath

    a world below

    Soaring about

    leading the flock

    senses keen

    delivering the message

    of lesser seen

    Ordinary greatness

    possessed within

    When she flies

    She Flies

    and upon return

    nestled and cupped in his hands

  10. Passions cauldron

    we stir

    Those flames that

    once consumed

    now fuels hunger

    and thirst for more

    It pushes us through

    the open doors

    He moves you all the right ways

    says all the right things

    in all the right ways

    The freedom to move

    to the songs

    came with a price

    and we've paid in full all along

    So we'll meet on the other side

    Where I know you'll confide

    your deepest desire

    you know the one

    that fuels the hunger

    and thirst for more

    pushing us through

    through those open doors

  11. My fellow poets

    I owe you an apology

    I tried my best

    to hold myself at a distance

    in order to figure out what to do

    because I am divided between

    my ethics and my muse


    I left you in a muddled state

    on the cusp of

    the rigors of reality and

    the dark horse of fate


    The trouble is

    he is my Promethean fire

    and like Prometheus

    I am cursed and inspired

    For with the inspiration

    comes love and desire


    Between December and January

    I discovered with surprise that

    I loved him


    I love him like the sun

    after months of dark & heavy clouds

    When his light breaks through

    I drop down and

    press my hands

    to the sun-warmed ground

    I turn my face up towards his light

    He is so bright

    but not so much

    that I lose my sight

    I gaze upon him as I would

    an oak tree

    One that I would touch

    both the rough of his bark

    and the softness of his leaves


    He inspired the best

    I have ever written

    but ethically

    to love and desire him

    feels forbidden


    Although I have attributed

    his inspiration to others,

    I will never deny

    that thoughts of him

    always satisfy


    Go JUJU! This is great:)

  12. Still look to the sky

    the wind as it churns

    heart as it burns

    Fanning the fire

    that you ignited

    Tending to embers

    of your leaving

    The hanging head

    of grieving


    They trail in the wind

    igniting a path

    through which we run

    Creating anew this light

    of passion


    Despite the burn

    replenishing buds

    amongst barren soil


    Let it be those

    Please, let it be those

  13. I stand here

    lighting...lighting the way


    They say their heaven's

    a place I can't stay


    Yet, I stand here

    lighting...lighting the way


    They say their heaven's

    a place I can't stay


    Someone to carry the weight

    someone to set things straight

    in your arms

    your know I will fall

    because our universe

    is oh....so...small


    So I continue to stand

    stand here

    lighting the way

    because their heaven is

    No place to stay

  14. Effigies propped and paraded

    Examples of what could not be

    All meant to tell that story

    of what one can and cannot see


    They had no chance

    to turn around

    They went full force

    without that doubt

    Those misguided youth

    that you betray

    to make them run to you

    so in your arms they'll stay


    The darkness falls

    the curtain closes

    hearing the sounds

    of echo osmosis

    turning the page

    facing the fear

    Impart your voice

    to histories ear

  15. Sitting at the edge

    I fell in

    Surrounded by the sounds

    of the universal symphony

    Escaped from the chains that bound

    run towards the threads that bind

    for woven so delicately

    of fine silk and softness

    Andromeda she calls to me

    Her sun, it morphs

    being pulled by eternity

    shaped and molded in perfections form

    Wondering where her counterbalance lies

    Is it ours, that guides

    or does she posses her own strength bearer

    That which molds in dark

    Her other half

    I've gone in seek

  16. The abandon of delight

    Churns emotion

    Spurns the fight


    Initiate cerebral toil

    Emotion channel open

    Fear nothing, say anything

    just not goodbye


    Draw the pictures

    pleasing to the eye

    Paint the page with words of might

    Delve inside for secret delight


    For mighty are we

    When we stand true

    unmatched by they

    whom try to confuse


    We are vast and many

    We are strong and humble

    We are silently loud

    We are here to stay

    No we're not

    going away

  17. We walk in day

    yet night falls all around

    The tightrope slackens

    fighting the urge to misstep

    Our worlds wobble

    teeter totter goes the mind

    tightened ropes

    make for easier travels


    So close yet so far



    in here, my heart, or out there

    the fractal universe

    to be discovered

    hidden in the cold of night

    lies supreme control


    From smallest to largest unknowns

    those principles that govern us

    that hold and console

    as we traverse the cliffs

    on rope in wind

  18. Love your website! Easy to navigate and tastefully done. Your surreal paintings are cool, they each convey a message. I also enjoyed your wonderfully depressing poetry (and I mean that in a good way!). I'll be looking for more of your work in the future:D

  19. You have already set in motion

    your own self-defeat

    getting lost in the ocean

    Knowing you can navigate the course

    though can you change your destination

    A challenge presented

    for a forward row

    don't look back

    just let them go

    for when you learn

    to turn the tides

    a new horizon

    appears before eyes

  20. Through the storm

    I trudge


    in a world so large

    with one lone voice

    that calls to me


    the light in the break of clouds

    a gentle breeze

    amongst raging winds


    You slow it down

    and make me think

    before I'm sent

    right to the brink


    To hold hands

    under pale moonlight

    an honor in the highest regard

    as we forage through

    the vacant rundown yard

  21. At first bite, I was taken

    All of me, for the making

    Innocent eyes

    they shuttered

    I ran so fast

    feet left the ground

    heart pounds once again

    Oh, to be bitten

    for a second time

    without moments pause

    I was yours for the taking

    Stronger moments can define

    of all your images in my mind

    So run at rapid pace

    to rescue my hardened heart

    to revive these lifeless lungs

    to protect what is yours and mine

    to live in a moment

    So divine

  22. We were not lost

    We were simply not found

    The paths are varied

    and those whispers carried

    through the air with fervent care

    to let us know

    we are still here

    To fight and forage

    amongst the shadows

    To cast the mold

    of future stories told

    To lend hand

    to someone in need

    To balance justice and time

    to hold onto truth

    with all our might

    I ask of you

    to peer through the illusion

    to see what can be done

    if we simply come together,

    come together as one


    Homage to Dragondust and the rest ;)

  23. My heart, it beats for you

    The feverish pitch

    with which you move

    and all the matter

    that transforms the skies

    I can see it

    in those eyes

    A world of exploration

    to begin reformation

    from the start

    you captured me

    stole my heart

    and enraptured me

    Know that I will always

    be here for you

    When times are rough

    we'll see this through
