Three Ditties on Love

Ghosted I want to scream at the top of my lungs Burst them and lie down and die My life is passing me by And I look in the rearview And I see the graveyard of lives I’ve lived hers, and hers, and hers, and hers, and hers; I was: I was hers. Before I…

In Darkness, Light

It’s been a long time, A long time running in the woods Crying on tree stumps, Mourning yesterday These shadow games I’ve played Setting the stakes against myself The yields of low expectations, Leading me time and time again to the precipice of my own demise Thinking, this can’t be life I never meant to…

Dear Society

There is a pain to growing up, a hurt inherent to not knowing how to ease the woes that accompany a given life. Woes arising from the truths we dare not face; our identity naturally in opposition to anything that threatens our core underlying beliefs about who we are. These core beliefs are typically unconscious,…

Planes or Pills

We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come. – Joseph Campbell I am thirty and I don’t believe in anything anymore. Only G-d and books. Love feels…

MG

I will tell you about my G-d He is an optimistic nihilist, a smart fool, just like me He is a she, a we, an idea I carry – Always My G-d is with me now, When you were gone, Long before and after you stopped loving me And the sun had set in me…

The Rules (Live By Your Own)

I have writen these to center myself by striking bedrock on the foundations of my life at thirty. It is absolutely insane that we are not all taught to define and live by our own rules. Have inner peace. This comes from listening to and following your heart. This is the essence of loving yourself.…

The Substance of The Soul

Edit: I’m beating myself up after publishing this. It’s not that I don’t like the content, which was inspired by a conversation I had tonight with two new friends. The problem is, this is simply not the right form. There is a reason Victor Hugo wrote Les Miserables. I must work on my stories. This…

Wake Up With Your Dreams

N.G.U Never Give Up It warrants a seriousness – you see You musn’t ever, ever give up on your dreams For if you do dear child, You will awake without them And a day without, Is spent in doubt But a day with, Is-a life well-lived So to the wise, These words I give: Before…

Threadbare

Carpe Noctem I can be honest at night Almost half-past three Digital light I can’t tell you I’m not scared, Fuck yeah I fear the future But the wound is where the light enters, So pull these sutures These silly lies – Never was any good at wearing a disguise It’s a ruse, This game…

Under a Blue Moon

Cool on me the eye of heaven shines In an earthly world where the mortals dine I can’t question anything, Anymore or again I am to be my hero, My unequaled friend You know your truth, Think and speak your voice Act according to your heart and you’ll never have to make the choice, Between…
