About Me:  

Not your average poet; not your average poetry

A few years ago I woke up one morning with an ability to see the truth. Some people might think that's a good thing. However, I see it in situations where I'd rather not see it, as well as in situations where it doesn't want to be seen. So far this ability seems a hell of a lot more like a disability. To make matters worse... I've developed a perverse compulsion to write about it in poetic form! In all reality, it feels like I've been damned by some kind of curse.
Most of my work pertains to society, drug addiction, middle age dating and some of the relationships formed by the dating process. I am far from a literary scholar...and I have absolutely no desire to even remotely resemble one. If I had to describe my writing style, I'd say that it's pretty goddamn straightforward with a conversational narrative. It's just that I don't want any fluffy imagery distorting the view. Yeah, I'm well aware that my methods for writing poetry seem a bit different; but I just happen to like different anyway

I am not the kind of person who just goes with the flow...'cause it either leaks down into a cesspool...or it flows into one of the streams that eventually end up in the Conformist river-way system; which immediately empties out right into the Great Sea of Stupidity.

The funny thing about the truth's generally ignored unless it tastes like sugar or smells like shit

                 -Blessed by a curse-  

Some poets pen the battles distressing the soul
we see the pain making one feel less than whole

a kind of insight that I'd often rather not believe
hexed by abilities most people cannot conceive

maybe it'd be worth it for a little fame and cash
just one more idle thought that's gone in a flash

I found that poetry can cause women to undress!
words got me laid; but added drama with stress

so what to do with a curse that won't disappear?
and will I have to write this shit year after year?!

Continuous acceptability of mediocrity only lowers the standards for all that is mediocre

If one can get to know their fears's fears transform into wisdom

Forgive what you want to forget

The most debilitating fear that fearing what others think of you

Your vision of certain to be someone's version of Hell

If one always tends to go with the's intelligence will never exceed a mob mentality.

If you deny or haven't come to terms with your past's tragedies...tragedy will always follow while another lays in wait

Some people say that a penis has a mind of it's own ...but no one has ever said the heart has brains

Modern man is the only species ever to exist instilled to ignore, deny, fantasize and avoid...reality

If fantasy is involved in everything that one finds fun to does not have real fun

If anyone thinks they're normal...I don't want to be anything like them

A bleeding heart drains blood from the brain

The omission of truth is nothing but a lie

Political correctness is really just the government enforcing lobotomies on mainstream society

Q.) How is it possible to fear someone you love?
A.) It's not love

Trust no one 'til you know better

The lack of a will to change prevents emotional balance, cripples intelligence and disables the ability to learn

When you expect people to be like you think they should be...everyone will disappoint you

Facebook...the land where people are just looking to be offended

Never think it's impossible just because you can't imagine it

The biggest mistake made by a majority of those who practice religion...they don't realize that sins can only be truly absolved by receiving forgiveness from those whom they have sinned against

-Rainbows and red hot souls-
To experience the things that really make life beautiful must first experience something that makes Hell horrific  

We hate ourselves less...'cause we hate others more

-Democracy or delusion?-
If our votes could change the government ...the government would ban us from voting

-Endless possibilities-
Accept the impossible and anything becomes possible

-Obsolete is absolute-
The core beliefs that govern your life...need to be routinely checked, updated and sometimes even deleted

-Forever in embers-
If one has a lifelong fear of death and/or is guaranteed am eternity in Hell

"Religion is for people who are afraid of going to Hell... Spirituality is for those who have already been there." -Vine Deloria, Sioux-

"I stand by what I say...not what you choose to understand"  -words to this effect quoted from a source I forgot-
