SOMEBODY, MAYBE YOU

You find yourself free of a toxic relationship.  But how free?  Don’t let the memories keep you tangled in the past.  Find a way to unravel them and use them to propel yourself into a future free of cobwebs. Trying like mad to untangle The last torturous threads Of our fucked up history Knotted webs…

LET IN THE SUN

I don’t like the way the wind Has been shaking this house Empty and cold a place I constructed a life time ago The creaking Once a lullaby Now sounds like screams I can’t sleep I can’t think It’s the house telling me To get out, go away, move on And some days I just…

BUSINESS AS USUAL

The ball will drop And it will be lit There will be cheers There will be suicides The ball will drop And it will twinkle Bringing new hopes And plenty of fears The ball will drop And it will dance Confetti will fly Happy new year Full of fight Full of giving up Moving forward Pushing…

IT’S IN THE PIECES

I wrote this when I first started blogging.  I guess relationships are something I have always over analyzed and today is no different.  Words4jp made me think of this poem I wrote so long ago. Our relationship wouldn’t last long It was nearly over before it even began I knew it even as I held…

CONFETTI DAYS

I wrote this post originally in May of 2012.  The memories I had trouble classifying when I wrote this post somehow ended up where they needed to be over time.  I believe emotional wounds are like physical wounds.  If we keep dwelling and fueling our heartache by listening to certain music, looking at certain pictures,…

CEMETERY VISIONS

Written by Mark Schutter and HastyWords  Visions of memories long since lost Silent voices cry from beyond the looking glass Frozen emotions flow like rivers of ice Eyes of stone gaze upon pacification by force Ancestors once prayed long and hard For the freedoms they hoped would endure But time ticks away all false pretenses…
