Weeds


Tall lies
Taller deceit

Blinded by smoke
Hidden within the weeds

What once was believed
Now lies breathless

Cold
Bitter
Angry

Blackened
Diseased

Through the weeds
Through the trees

Not a speck of light
Not a drop of truth

Deceived

Yet silent

Blessed be karma’s revenge…

Words


Out of words
Can no longer describe

Another emotion
Feelings just below the skin

What is trapped
What longs to be set free

Tonight
Same feelings

Yet different

Some how

Some way

Fallen deeper
Tangled tighter
Hopelessly ensnared

Wordless
Godless
Empty inside

Alone
Cold
Stagnant

Once inspired
Now only staring blankly

Lost will
No desire

Paper crumpled
Floor littered

No words to be had…

Cannot describe…

How I miss my friend…

Alike


I see you in me

Your fears

Your longings

Your desires

Your needs

I feel your soul in everything I read

Connected in some strange way

Connected but two thousand miles away

Your thoughts

Your wants

Your actions

Exactly like mine

We pour our hearts onto paper in the dark of night

Hiding our faces come the morning light

Recoiling from the world

It’s how we feel safe

What makes us feel alright

Suffering alone

Damming the pain

But totally miserable when there is no strife or strain

You understand me and how I feel day-to-day

Two souls

Twisted

Beaten

Rejected

Two souls each understanding the other…

Connected…

But two thousand miles away…

Give Me


Give me a whiskey
One
Two
Three

Give me a whiskey
A double
To drown your memory

Give me a whiskey
Tall glass
So I can forget

Give me a whiskey
The good stuff
Then let me be

Give me a whiskey
I got them blues
The kind deep inside
The ones only a woman can cause

Give me a whiskey
Just keep um coming

Don’t ask why
I won’t tell
You would never understand anyway

Give me a whiskey
This round tonight is just for me

Give me a whiskey
One
Two
Three

Give me a whiskey
So I can raise a toast

Ironically to…

What I’m drinking to forget…

Inspiration


Simple words
An inspiration

From nowhere
Out of the blue

Opened a closed-door
Changed a repeating view

Simple words
Found a home

Thawed a frozen heart
Calmed a broken mind

Simple words
Evolved
Became something more

A connection
An unbreakable bond

Pushing
Pulling
No quitting allowed

Simple words
An inspiration

Once here

Now gone…
