Back from the Dead.
I viewed others lives through a telescope
For far too many lost years
For I, lived in limbo
Gave up hope
Tried to climb a slippery slope
I know what darkness is
It's a place in hell
I know
Only too well.

I felt the pain...Read More

Never hid in Jefferson Airplane
Never beat his wife
Never wept on the floor of jail
Never drank his life away
Never ranted on soldiers grave
Never changed his name
Never came back from the dead

A Very Bad Man
We hung the baddest man in Kileen
As dangerous as we'd ever seen
"I will haunt you," he had said
"I will come back from the dead."
So we buried him in Abilene.

Dreams Beyond Dreams
There are places out in space
that beg the question of why,
abiding where dreams embrace
our infinite inner sky.

Stargazers pay attention
to sidereal pathways,
tracing every dimension,
some using astral math ways.

Scientists study each fact
and what their instruments find
of astronomic impact
in terms of matter and...Read More

Ask love a question
Ask love a question

Love doesn’t ask what the age difference is,
What job they do and how much money they make.
All love asks is do you love them?

Love doesn’t ask if they already have kids.
Are your feelings the truth?
Are you ready...Read More

All in a Days Work
God created the heavens and Earth,
Presided at a child’s birth,
Made man from a pile of clay,
Welcomes saints to glory everyday.

God smote the Philistines and Egyptians in a fight,
Put the stars and Moon in place for light,
Provided manna for his people...Read More

Andersonville Prison, 1864
“Is this place Hell” a prisoner asked his first day there; 
No, just a stop along the way. 
Andersonville Prison, 1864. Hell Upon Earth.

The hounds of hell waited for those stranded in battle by 
canon shot, hunted down by the...Read More

Naked feet ‘neath The Pillars of Petra

You are worshipping her on your knees

Wrote my way out
I was kicked while I was on the floor and told I was supposed to stay down
They smiled while I cried
I found a way to get up, even when I was bleeding on the inside
I picked up a pen and...Read More

Wishful thinking
I wish I never self-harmed because  now all people do is stare
Imagine if my parents cared and never put me in foster care
I often wish that they never started drinking
This is just some of my wishful thinking

Dark Thoughts
Frustrated, dissatisfied, you've tried and tried,
The meaning of life has you completely mystified.
Another negative vibe that's too hard to describe,
Depressed, anxious and feeling dead inside.
Dark thoughts dominate your mind, you can't unwind,
Searching for answers that you might never find.
Questioning reality...Read More

Right now is all we have
Make sure you say what you mean, because you may not get a chance to take it back
Tomorrow isn't promised, we can die at any moment
Right now is all we have

One Out of Six
Who among you is brave enough
(or dumb enough)
to take the challenge
Bet your life to beat the odds ...

spin the cylinder, 
spin it good
Place the wager with a reputable bookie
Everybody’s dying to see...Read More

Your conversation centers 'round,
Complaints of one kind or another.
I swear sometimes I think for sure,
You're someone's sainted mother.;

Or someone's maiden aunt, per chance,
Come back from the dead,
To punish me for all my sins,
And fill my life with dread.

You need me...Read More

Prodigal Son

Recoiling, I'm Beyond Useless
Put a sail to me, I'll cross the seven seas

who do I appear to be

The Payback
I'm coming back
faster than a heart attack.
This is your only warning
I'll be there in the morning.
Your about to bear
the word,
Don't be slow
or I'll make shore,
all of your babies don't grow,
catching my flow.
I will make it rain
the definition of the word,...Read More
