Colorful Taps

Every time I wash a piece of fruit I peel the little sticker off And stick it on the top of my tap. When I was young my mother would remove them each morning. When I got older, my girlfriends would do the same. It would annoy every woman I loved and some I still do....

My Couch

My couch is my friend. It is there when I wake up and waits for me patiently while I’m at work. It is the first thing I see when I get home. The last thing I see before bed. Each cushion on my couch is different. One keeps my top half comfortable and safe. It has...

Cigarettes & Poetry….

curling ribbons, silver streams, from your fiery hide,         syllables and soliloquies, show my wondrous side, your touch it burns, your kiss it tears and scratches at my throat,        your metaphors leave minds to twist, wrapped up in rhyming coats. Oh, how...

The Old Men

Round em up those richly lies and dress them in their nines. Tie those silks around their necks and shut those wrinkly eyes. Close the caskets slide them in, turn the hearses on. Drive them down those empty streets the old men have moved on. Widowed wives they dare...

Breathe Gently On My Flame

You took my candle to your bedroom. You prayed the flames would keep you warm. Hoped the glow would never turn into a dark and tired burn. You shuttered every single window. Locked the door and closed the blinds. Watching as my candle fought against the coming of the...

The Prophet & The Priest: A Snakes Contemplation

As the Prophet and the Priest walked along the road to Sudbar, they came across a snake trapped underneath a large stone, writhing in the desert sun. "Help me lift the stone" the Prophet said to the Priest, unable to move it alone. The Priest shook his head, "I know...

One Night Thief

Precious, are you there? There's no need for tears, you always cared. Am I still in your prayers? I'm sure you whisper my name in your bed. I know you tried to clean, all the love I left upon your skin. I know you've heard the tale of the others who so humbly fell I'm...

The Might Of My Pen

As I sit by myself on a bench by the sea, I exhale as the skies turn dark over me. A rain drop - two - three - then a thousand pour down, and the air's getting colder as my mind starts to drown. But my body won't move, no way, no how. I'm dropping fast through the...

Etched On My Skin

etched on my skin is the story of you like a fiery stream it burns it’s way through your scars are my trophies your will is my mirror without which i’m hopeless just a man, just a sinner you stood by my side and cradled my fears showed me not to hide and brushed off...

Memories In Dust

She faced him in the dim light of the morning, underneath a halo of rain and murky clouds as they stood on cobble stones surrounded by skyscrapers; and told him she didn't care. He rushed inside his soul, looking for a way out. Something to say that would make her...

Bleeding Pleas

Say you love me one more time, it's hard to listen through your lies. Winter's coming through my soul, Summer's wasted on my floor. Say you care and want me back, I've torn my heart upon this track. Far too long to see the end, blistered feet I can't pretend. if you...

The Prophet & The Priest: Loves Worth

One day, as the Prophet and the Priest traveled south on the road to Sudbar, the Priest asked the Prophet, "How would you measure love's worth?" The Prophet thought for a while, then knelt down and picked up a small grain of sand. He held it up to the Sun, "With this"...

Oak Street Blues

I'm down on Oak Street, where the kisses are by the hour, a girl for every flower, down that lonely road. I'm peddling music, on the sax they hear me cry, for every tear they leave inside, underneath their smiling lie. Stilettos with the blue shades, black curls with...

Naked Dream…

I'm drowning sorrows in a whiskey week. Pills aren't my thing so I sit back and sip while sucking on some weed. Until I feel the weekend on my face. With two days hanging free, taxed five off of a calendar space. The city waits for no man. She exists on a separate...

Opal Thief

The Fairy's at my door. Her eyes are burning I can't run from her no more. She's closing in, her drool is dripping on the floor. My heart is pounding, pull these sheets up, make her go! She's dressed in pink and white. With heels of glass, I hear them clicking in the...

Privilege

To The Victor Go The Spoils

I thought myself a warrior on the hunt for the wild untamed, yet I see I was wrong. You, are the warrior, and my heart, your prey. I will fight with honor, but the battle is already lost. I should have known there was a reason why wolves fear you, and birds dare not...

Remember Me

The ink is black the candle's lit her lips are quivering. I wrote my life upon her skin her soul is withering. She scratched her lust across my back as I plunged into her sea. And so I drowned while she looked on Will you remember me? Her heart is weak it skips a beat...
