forgive me father for I have sinned

Everything is quiet now

in the middle of the day

where misery has settled down

like bricks on my chest lay

and although I can’t make a sound

my voice has gone astray

I will not settle underground

tomorrow I shall wake

to soft sounds of the morning

like loved ones I have lost

reminders that my mourning

is not in vain but just

and in the shadows of my mind

to where I now so lay

forgive me father for I have sinned

relieve me of this day.

souls to bargain

There is so much to live for

and so much we will lose in the process.

My heart aches at the thought of it

so much so that I often dive down

the wishing well in hopes of finding

anything tangible other than this loss.

But it is inevitable.

We will lose everything we touch

and in the end find ourselves

empty handed

at the crossroads

with nothing but our souls to bargain.

My focus is a pinball

There is no

If

And

Or

But

About it

My focus is a pinball

With

No

Credits

Left

To play.

great importance

No matter how much

people want you to believe

something is of great importance

remember that it’s still

just a bunch of people

standing around

shuffling their feet

trying to look important.

the naked and clothed

If you can manipulate life into a form

that suits your needs then wear it.

Or walk naked if you have to.

Either way,

Winter is cold. Summer is warm.

Spring is boundless. And the Fall is inevitable.

In this life

the naked and clothed

are one and the same

some just get lucky

while others wear the blame.

taking the cuffs off

What’s the point in saying anything

with so much more to say

than what you’re actually saying

you just kind of don’t think you do anymore

or perhaps you haven’t found the right words

because I could go on all day about it

so don’t lie to me kiddo

I could punch all the mirrors in the world

but it wouldn’t make a difference either way

that’s just a cop out and I’m taking the cuffs off.

obsessive compulsive culture

These are

obsessive compulsive times

in an even more

obsessive compulsive culture

so it’s no wonder

this obsessive compulsive content

isn’t anything more than

a like, swipe, and vine away

from disappearing.
