Me and my should-have-been-dead but much-alive brother.

Game—playing Leroy grinned at me with that all-knowing look.

Premium Member Right Hook

And the beat goes on
pounding on ribs
temples pulsing
words clenched keeping
explosions inside

subcutaneous quakes raging
and as I fiercely pedal away

For six hours we've been watching
The eye of Irma twitch
As the winds and rains around it

Premium Member We Are Who They Thought We Were
- I take a step back to reflect. Fecal matter storms a reality check in to the mental hotel of chaos. In utter disorder; rationality eludes us. Cluelessly, we are insane—on a temporary leave of absence. Senselessly numb; simply, simple......Read More

Dark clouds accompanied by blue sky
Dark clouds accompanied by blue sky.

I lifted my eyes high
Then I saw a blue sky
Black clouds drifted across slowly
she awakened my heart sorrowfully
She stopped to say sorry
As she released drops of blood
Where I stood became gory
It gradually turned flood
Holding me...Read More

A smile so beautiful it knocks the life out of you, 
Leaving you all dazed up,

Yes, between her hips are her...Read More

Round 1
Your knees became weak
Learning that your opponent was The Great Enah;
The one to never lose a match.
The one to tear you apart from the inside,
with a double right hook to a left
uppercut combo,
and finally a killer left jab to...Read More
