Pollution

Cloven am I, torn in two
Between my beliefs and all that is untrue
Of faith and the commonality of despair
A polluted soul and a fresh breath of air...

my saving grace

conflicted faith
undecided path
doubtful resolution
 
lost wanderer
misplaced self
vanished soul
 
survived death
enduring life
existing barely
 
an angel
a fiend
somehow intertwine
 
reasoning heart
softens demons
sense found

BLUE'S INK

Wanna know me; ink tells my story  
I'm the father; there's no need for Maury  
Poetry and tattoos express my views  
Giving you insight by inking clues of my blues

Foundation

Father left too young, too soon,
Contently played this earthly game
Mastering
Intellect and emotion.

Mother,
In grief always; paralyzed
Demanding her childrensí attention.

I, the ugliest mixture of two.

Braggard

I wasted my life
Living it

Seen some things
Done some things

Now I brag about them
Call it poetry

It's the gift of old age
Gift that keeps giving

                                     ..heart in husk..

                              when it all gets burned away by

                                 lifes unwanted learning lessons
                                 
                                 my husk is all thats left
             
                                 in the husk lives a live beating heart
                               
                                 who finally holds the pen

Beginnings through reddened skies turned blue

After primal chaos
density , I took
to these mounds
to find
the Sidhe
the shining ones
I sat beneath
sacred oak Bile
waiting
for a time
humanity
needs
wisdom
again

Leave The Window Open

I dine
on all thatís lovely
walking distant coasts.
I commit to each moment,
having loved, to love again.
Leave the window open,
so my raven soul may flutter out.

This is my cell
I've built it myself
I've always had the words
Never the common sense
To fix this fractured life story
Instead I glory to be someone else

SUBMARINE

my blue
periscope
can pierce
this mental
haze
or
tympanic
radar
guide
my
bony
ship
so deep
the rivets
creak

rising then,
dolphins
just below
the ocean's
tumult

almost
undetected

Still in Progress

Sensitive and caring
Perhaps a little daring
But mostly a nice guy who gives a damn
A motivated creative idealist
A funny, logical yet twisted surrealist
Is who I am
