Camper

I don’t want to hear your words. I don’t want to see your face. I’m alive. All inside. Hiding in the safest place that I can find, and I’m waiting for you to show me who you are, so I can pierce your heart with my words. My intentions are aimed at causing the most […]

The Adventurer

Pushing off from my center. Setting out to find you. The call to adventure is leaving everything behind you, or so the song says.   Growing sicker in the middle. Making no progress, just accommodations, well intentioned concessions. Letting the enemy in, falling victim to the parasite.   Something in the water that we drink, […]

Day After Day

Broken shafts of light stab through the eyes. Morning comes, and I wake, to lay with my crimes. The feathers of fallen angels still tickle my mind, as I lay here, in the most abandoned of times.   There is no more lonely time than the dawn. Awake with no other, just another thing wrong. […]
