'The storms are raging on the rollin' sea, and on the highway of regret'

It was surfers' paradise weather but he had only captured a dinghy

Made from lost dreams and drift wood collected in seasons of love

No shoreline in sight he...Read More

Premium Member oceans apart
gravity craves in the sky

weightless surrender -

comet reaches rock bottom

tides foam a lullaby

crested lengths wave -

ripples focus underneath

horizon lingers abreast

pain drenched capture -

currents expose lost hope

a life buoy tied to an anchor

flare soaked in life’s blood -

cess pool seizes cessation

The Mind-Admonishment
A fountain where devious thought flow
A spring where goodness grow
Right or wrong it doesn't choose 
whatever conceived it will use

In it esteem is lost
Within it ego is just
The I am not good enough and unwanted
I can do better,am worth it...Read More

His life raft drifted helplessly in an ocean of tears and lost dreams

		In tangible finite and impermanent flow

He lost his compass and the needle festered in Tom’s purulent arm

		A portal to hot flushes of receding pain

Chasing sea dragons and hobgoblins...Read More

If President Trump knew me 
What would I be? 
A prince, pauper or just someone with a degree

During the time when the new Casinos...Read More

Suffused by wisdom the Buddha reaches out for Atlantis

Blows bubbles in vain as they burst at the door of Nirvana

And yet he can hold his breeze of a breath for eternity

For those precious moment while permanence stays silent

Poem about life
Life is hard and sometimes overwhelming,
Sometimes my life seems so depressing,
I’ve been dragged down to rock bottom,
Which seems all I do is keep on stressing,

I’ve through hell and back,
But somehow I found the strength to comeback,
But now I know my...Read More

Where a little too much gin meets a little sin
One is left below five
Definitely less than halfway there
But not rock bottom 
With the texture of a scone with bits of bone
Something not nice 
Not quite right when day bites night...Read More

I had an epiphany today 
The first one in a long time
Such an interesting organ the brain
So many studies
Yet no one knows how consciousness really works
And if it even abides in the brain at all 
My brain has been broken

I feel myself slipping into the darkness of an abyss.
Drowning grasping at complete nothingness with a stinch of death and despair.
Mind racing of thoughts I normally can’t recall, viewing in my mind like a slideshow.

Rock Bottom
I have fallen down
My knees are scraped
My nails are torn
I lay there looking up at the night sky
Complete darkness
No stars to be seen
Without them I have no way to navigate
Where do I go from here
Laying on the ground
My blood pooling...Read More

Rock Bottom Again
And once again it happened,
I took to long to make a choice,
Now I am back down on rock bottom,
I should've listened to that little voice,
The one that kept telling to let go,
Change yourself before it's to late,
But since I have...Read More

Love gives

Love evokes memories long since forgotten.
Love lifts us up when life leaves us rock bottom.
Love gives us strength when we feel we have none.
Love shows us how we feel in a new or old song.

Love is just a word,...Read More

My Darkest Hour
It's not just the falsely accused
That suffer
It's the children, the parents
The sister, the brother.

It's not just the horror
Of a person's false claim, 
It's the band-wagon jumpers
That blacken your name

It's not just suspicion 
That causes your hell
It's the following and hounding

Rock Bottom
Stand and flight, or fly and flee,
The two choices we face.

Stand unmoving,
Or fly above.

Trampled by the world,
Torn to pieces by your “friends,”
Your family.
Facing it in solitude,
Going through it alone.

Take to the sky,
Avoiding the stones and javelins.
Finding the strength to continue,
To...Read More
