Watch them leave
Iím 7 months sober, but the pills keep calling me.
I wish theyíd loose my number.
Itís getting old.
True feelings start to unfold.
Deep internal trauma that I buried a long time ago.
Why canít they stay under the surface?
It defeats the purpose,
of being buried in the first place.
So it started with kids a school pushing me down.
Thinking that they ran the play ground.
I grew older.
They got colder.
Home wasnít better and I once had one...

Raphium Series~they operate from inside our moon
high in the celestial kingdoms I climb
unfurling the tide I feel within
keeping my head low lest I be detected
an ancient race of peoples is at war in the heavens
armed with truth I cut the tracers on my particular magic
code locked and ready to blow
I take a shot and my enemy goes down
it's with a heavy heart I do this it is one of my fellow Raphium
all energy will return to it's former state
trapped in an infinite loop
my foe will relive his folly
there is no exit until there is understanding ...

Lost In Verse
Lost in verse as twilight descends
night falling between the winds
and echoes of a shadow's breath
rising I walk the valley of death
having died once I won't die again

All I wanna do

long before the curse that binds
less forlorn in savage times
wish me gone in delicate rhymes
and whisk me, worn, in thorny vines
lay me down in silken threads
place my head upon its bed
twist my neck in sickening dread
and drain me clean of anything red
winterís drear darkens the feast
for light brings grief upon the beast
let no one let this sabbath cease
rend my flesh, bloated and bleached

I quit!Ē The voice in my head keeps repeating over and over.
I wondered what that meant, as I stood in the break room at work.
Is the job too stressful?
Has my body had enough?
Or is it my mind finding it tough
to make it through?
All of the faking and all of the games.
Constantly taking the blame
For things that I didnít do.
And all the hurt that people go through.

The Tyrant King
Beelzebub in my
champagne in the
youíve got me fucked
up right now
there are bees in the
blood and guts and
viscera all along
you werenít going
you were going to call
Iím living in the
you werenít pure
you were putrid
an acrid putty to
Iím smoking better
I just canít be beat
I was godís favorite ...

Stranded (Lost at Sea)
You stopped caring.
So, I stopped sharing the truth.
You went to my therapist looking for proof.
I didnít know what else to do.
Now, I have to hide everything from you.
I walk around like Iím lost at sea.
Because you hate the darkness within me.
Walking eggshells and no itís not fine.
But I know itís the only way to keep you in my life.

a resonant silence
manifesting a violence
where the nightmare is as real
as the pain that you feel
a sin unspoken
leaves a man broken
this absolute loser
a substance abuser
false and empty words
the idea is absurd
do i still exist?
something is still here
as the pain persistsÖ

seething, bleeding, breaking
how deep the rift, a soul laid bare

The "New" truth
By relative facts
Soul perverting times
Their new dollar worth a dime
Made new light to never shine
