Through The Eyes Of A Familiar Stranger

There are times I sit and stare off into an endless ocean of shadows that drift within the winds of my own thoughts. Sometimes I am that man who sees everything with clarity when there is nothing but chaos surrounding me.  There are times I grasp and hold onto everything complex because I don’t recognize […]

Words Forward   It was not so long ago that I found the words to express all that I’ve come to know in this world   and within this life that I have been given to live.   It was not so long ago that I broke the silence   and found a voice within […]

On The Inside

On the inside

Sometimes I hate when I’m supposed to love. I stare off into cluttered windows watching the eyes of my heart dilate into fragments of distance loudly shattering in the destination of this world unhealed. Those are the times I am numb when I’m supposed to feel holding on to pain I didn’t even know I […]

A letter To A Dream

March, 2010 So many times I wanted to lay down this pen and let the words migrate back into silent barriers of a once broken expression; so many times I wanted to lock away this literary voice behind unbreakable chains with no way out but every time I tried I heard you whistling my name […]

I am everything I have been afraid to be I am every sight that the witness of my core has been afraid to see because I have embraced every aspect of weakness that has formed the internal strength within me. I am the scar that has been stabbed into a relentless silence and left to […]

As-I-Stand-300x300

If they could just see me now/standing here taller than they ever thought I could stand/believing in myself despite all those frozen years they laughed at me like I wasn’t even there. This mirror now shines/no more fear because I have risen through the broken boards with sacrifice and hidden tears.   There is now […]

This Feeling So Alive

This feeling so alive

I am standing here watching words drizzle on the granite sidewalks of time/ they are endless emotions cascading on smooth marbled plateaus of thought. The sensory of eyelids revel in the sensationalism of reality as the framework of vision become more than a conspiracy of vivid fascinations. I am smiling at the wind as the […]

Borrowed Time

Time

I wouldn’t say I am one for sitting on bar stools in empty dirty bars studying time, but here I am/ all alone/ staring out a stainless glass window watching life happen and wondering about the sublime.   So many heartbeats out there strive for greatness; so many dreams colliding while searching for possibilities hidden […]

Sometimes The Rain

There are times I walk through pouring rain with no umbrella to shield me from all that grieves the pain. The world watches me as I tremble through muddied cemented fields where sadness remains and scurry past landmarks studied through a mind of loneliness as I remember tears I never allowed to sweat as my […]

Roots

Written for Sheila Vann on her 50th Birthday   Rich in your soul is the history of strength, soiled foundations that have seeded growth, distilled tears and refused pain.   In your eyes is the genetics of sacrifice, the agriculture of hope that has risen from the depths of poverty’s rain –   and in […]
