Young Karionake

Because living is letting go… When you want to throw your arms behind your body and let your chest lead you, eyes closed, tears in bubble streams dangling through the space between the light and your ears toes scraping lines of your existence as your being glides through sand know that you are not the…

Ground Penetrating Radar

What was once a minor yet constant drumming behind my eyes Tap tap tapping between my thighs is now an obnoxious thunder clap The crush will not be quashed Sly and hateful you are to keep at it The desire has not quelled Wicked and conniving you are, a bastard Trap trap trapping relentlessly no bligh…

Splintery

Chip away at it… Keep grabbing more handfuls off with your mind Keep biting away at it… Drown it regularly until it erodes over time Keep shoveling way down deep into it… Throw the parts that impede you off to the side Pick away at it … Keep telling me the love that you’re feeling…

Ignis fatuus

Don’t need a deluxe suite in the Maldives Or a country home with rows of deciduous trees I don’t need a diamond brooch or sapphire ring Although I won’t turn down either of those things So I’m sure that if I don’t have bucks in the bank I probably don’t need premium fuel in my tank I…

Maudlin Shots

The tequila says he’ll do anything I ask But he’s not the one I asked And the one I asked just laughs And that’s just how it goes The rum claims he’ll sacrifice, He’ll pay the price He’ll lay down his life if it pleases me which ironically I would do the exact same thing…

My 1501

No wool. No scales. Just stone. Just pressure. I can get an idea in my head I can cut and shave into the rock And make it something I can make me something I can create something Maybe even something beautiful Maybe even bring a stone to life No wallowing over regrets. Just losing fear. I…

Skinned knees

At the risk of sounding foolish I needed you so much that I didn’t feel whole without you. And I hated it. I hate you for allowing yourself to be my human addiction for so long watching me clinging on to the person that you pretended to be. At the risk of sounding foolish I…

Preforate

I’m watching you sedating Constantly debating Regurgitating – What’s wrong with the world I’m listening to you hurl I’m listening to you swirl hateful words you recently learned Now you mad about our past and whats so sad is your lengthy gasp as you relive unwilling to forgive every horror, every martyr every sickness, every…

Thoughts for my son 2 months before he turns 16

I wish that I could write a book of all of the things that I want to tell you about the world… All of the good things to come and all of the bad things lurking in the shadows- But if I did that you would be trapped in a room, reading about what life…

Conceivably at best

Perhaps I don’t perceive how abysmal I smell after sex because I’m used to my own funk. Perhaps I need to pretend to show affection when kindness is shown although I cannot feign my fear of fraudulence. Maybe I am a classic lunatic Maybe I deserve nothing more than agony. Maybe I am the only one to blame Maybe fondness…
