Fury, hate, hate, might, hate, hate, hate, love, love, love, love, love, Dig, dig with me, Happy, dig, dig in, I, AM HAPPY!!! Judgement, twisted, echo’s in my brain, Vibrating insulated voice. An exploration of my mental health tool boxes by attempting to understand the emotions behind rage.

Sweet Leafy Hair

Puffing on the lettuce cigarette,  Puffing on the Devil’s sauce,  Lighting puff after puff,  Lighting the key to unlock,  Thoughts of paradise,  Thoughts of Nirvana,  Carrying you through the stars,  Carrying you on its wisps of smoke,  Puffing on dear Mary Jane,  Puffing on her sweet leafy hair,  Lighting up the stars,  Lighting up the…

Yearning

Discarded words tumble forwards, Crumpled paper spilling ink, Little foot prints echo on, Words that never made it past the line, Never read or cared for, Never headed or thought for, Never wanted or heard after or, Later, while laying crumpled, On wooden floor, Words echoing off paper, Yearning for author, its creator, To whisper…

Shoreline Love

Whispers on the wind, Sex on the spin, Your hair shines in the night, Our love flies as a kite, Whispers soft while spinning, Splashing our love painting, Finger paints all about, Lazily floating love boat, Journey holding our hands, Looking at distant lands, Our love spins tales, Off distant shores of Whales.

Life and Its Doorways

Standing still in doorways, I fear to enter, So many I have entered before, Self hatred tearing at my back, Unknown urging agnst, Butterflies surge forth, Escaping and fluttering about, Standing in wonder at the doorway, Looking in, wondering, What’s in store for me, My choice to move paralyzes me, Standing still I cannot move,…

Fir Tree Forest

Fir tree forests surround us, Tonight the snow falls, All around us, Tall and true stands Clause, His beard and red jacket, Contrasting the white sheet pouring down around us, On this snowy Christmas Eve, Laughs and ho ho ho’s echo out, Ringing Fir trees sing aloud, Cheer and happiness abound, Santa Clause has completed…

Homebound Battlefear

Hearts won minds turned chemical burned, Hero’s march home, war and dreams, Constant reward, images burned, wounds inflicted, Mind confounded and infected by nightmares, Can’t sleep, media a constant reminder, War a reality nuclear vision blur, Fear gripping heart, reality tilting heart, Hearts and minds, minds and hearts, Winning hearts and minds, lost, lost, Hope…

Shredded Water

Facing the tempest, My feet clamber onto bulkheads, Ship rocking in her wavy bed, Gun grease soaking all, Cocking back I unload with furry, Shredding water in historic victory, Smoke floats exploding, Cheering in the background, Dark cloudy sky, Shadowing our war visage, Cloaking us in obscurity, Each round a testimony to our dedication, Ending…

Life

I see It in the rearview mirror, It stands shrouded in past memories, Its attire laughing at my soul, Its ravaged life, Its savage strife, Its destructive nature, its hollowed persona, Its staring at me, Its staring into my soul, Its desire to conquer me, Its horrible strategy, It cannot stand, I won’t bear defeat,…

Emotional Baggage

Off to the side I sit Idly by watching time Pass by my side as I Attempt to persuade Guardian Angels to untie My bounds that hold me Prisoner to this idle body Lazy, full of pride My eyes glazed over with envy For the riches of others As I sun away in jealousy Of…
