A naked soul
Freshly laid open
Raw & exposed
Tease out the secrets
Make her yearn
Discard false modesties
& allow me to finally see
Release what you hold dear
For they are safe with me
Feel joy without
Trying to control
Just be truly free
As God intended

Public declarations of my love
Letting all the people know Shouting to the Heavens Into the gusts my words shall flow
Taking the high road to oblivion
A world testing my ability to be true Battered & fatigued, but not beaten They’ll realize all I want is you Like this: Like Loading...
Seeking out the sunshine
Grasping at anything bright Echoes from the haunting Howls from deep in the night
Taking the long way home
Away from all things too much Avoiding stress & transgressions Trappings of modernity & such
We shall find an answer
Within the confines of peace Our aims are good & true Seeking love until the end of life’s lease Like this: Like Loading...

Many a boy – quick in his view
Looking for the easy girls of a soft dawn Those who are comely & always giggle With an fresh smile & seldom else on
They know not the pleasure of true joy
The beauty of engaging an active mind The coaxing out of the right words An equal in intellect you might find
But I, who finds himself at sunset
Have indeed heard the siren’s voice & the pleasure of being selected By a grown woman’s choice Like this: Like Loading...

You might find me boorish
A buffoon with sensibilities from another age An undereducated hack with perverse interests Jotting down any ol’ thought on the page
I can be oblivious, sullen & exhausting
Rarely the life of the party, it’s true You might find me infuriating But I assure you, my wife does too Like this: Like Loading...

Unplugging from the mainframe
Remaining forever off the grid Don’t need their connections Don’t know if we ever truly did
The final tragic hero of a modern culture
The soul survivor of a discarded revolution Histories & experience outside the norm Dreams of freedom with divine attribution
Dealing with the conceits of perfection
The concepts of loneliness & betrayal This world isn’t what we were promised Token hints lost behind a fractured veil
The answers are hidden beyond this life
It may look bleak, but don’t you fret We have the Source of Light & they’re still riding that ol’ dialup internet Like this: Like Loading...

Producing love from the remnants

There are those who think me boring
There are those who think me droll
But I take all their judgements in stride
For I must stay true to my own soul
Their queries do not make me stir
For I no longer have anything to prove
But you better grip these sheets
Lookin’ lovely, hope you’re ready to move
Wasted my youth, obeyed all the rules
I’m enlightened; I’ve learned with time
These days I may be old & grey
But I’m still better than my prime Like this: Like Loading...

Our flaws are the truest form of humanity
That which separates us from the machines
The cold, the soulless; exactly what not to be
Whether we can evolve remains to be seen

Walking down the street on All Saints’ Day
Victrolas on display at the corner store
A flirtatious greeting with the local beauty
She always smiles, but never asks for more
You’ve created another aura within her
Casting her as red-blooded in your pulp fantasy
A polite lady with those vicious high heels
Mental interludes without consent, it seems to me
Take your dreams & exit stage left
You tried to court & failed, life’s not fair
Let a true gentleman whisper elegant words
She’ll open up her passion, exposing her silky pair Like this: Like Loading...
It’s a sparse paradise these days
Feeling another season coming on Not supposed to feel like this At least that’s the way we’ve been drawn
She’s still the poor pretty rich girl
Never could get off the same page
Repeat struggles to survive
Tripping on my lines; a vapid stage
Reality is an emotion detached from my soul
You never needed everyone to love you Instilled confidence to merely exist Forethought is a luxury that might just be true
Transcripts of the past’s failures
We’ve learned, but not out of society’s grip False starts & then some Rising, but we’re still not quite hip Like this: Like Loading...

On the shores of Ol’ Patagonia
While the citizens did sleep Youthful fear of affection Yet into the woods, they silently creep
Don’t let on how you feel
For you might get what you want The pain of admitting you care & perchance it might forever haunt
The burden of carrying embarrassment
& possibly feeling regret this long Thy youth’s clear true love But hindsight tells me I was wrong
For I wasn’t brave enough to trust
Too busy being incorrect by name Fear welling into my soul But I loved her all the same
It’s not fair to bring up old times
Immaturity & self-reject are not a virtue I don’t deserve her thoughts nor sentiments In the end, never good enough for you
Still thinking of what might’ve been
Or an excuse to freshly misbehave Angst & teenaged awkwardness Take a shot & take it all to my grave Like this: Like Loading...
Can we puncture our transcendent eyes
Feeling fantasies no one can understand
Trapped behind responsibility & expectation
Failing to grasp foundations as we planned
The difference in our souls transmit
Expounded by the beatings of our hearts
Revolutions begin when the cerebral are tired
But their might will never sever our parts
You cannot be weak if you’re truly weird
There’s no time for the molecules to rearrange
These burdens of an unimaginative society
Simply cannot fathom the depth of how you’re strange Like this: Like Loading...

It is not a sin, no matter what they say
For love triumph over all — beyond how we explain For truth is greater than words Thus loyalty & devotion shall forever remain
I’m not worried what the preacher says
For he doesn’t understand our match Too ancient to grasp our harmonization He has his own itch he can’t scratch
All that matters is how we feel inside
True love is not a notion they can reject Our bodies & souls eternally intertwined Upon a higher calling our passion connects Like this: Like Loading...
Waking early before the morning
Monitoring the world, as I sip my achromatic brew
The front window, my porthole to beyond
From this security, I decipher what is true
I try to formulate tangible creations
Converting inspiration into mere words
Observations from my suburban perch
Sharing stories with Poe’s bleak-hued bird
Writing down the secrets she might share
Enlivening my dreams on this quiet block
Churning thoughts into hopeful spools
In which might allow my mind to dynamically unlock Like this: Like Loading...

With Summer’s moonlight shining down
We’re not alive to merely appease everyone
Reminder to exist for your soul’s own sake
Basking in the fickle warmth of the rising sun
Released from those winter storms
Contending with heat & humidity down there
Be comfortable in your sovereignty
& thus release yourself from their stares
Do not double back & suffer fools
Stretch to become your complete ability
Expanding your mind to finally believe
& thus be fully & truly free Like this: Like Loading...
