Forest Foundling
If I were to carve out my heart and leave it in the woods, would the woods want to keep it for me? Under a leafy canopy, in the shade of an elm, amidst all this stately grace and silent space, would a bloody piece of pain still beat and attract attention? How would a pounding drum be heard through the vast and stable forest? Would songbirds scatter? Foxes flee? Would even bears be chased off by such a keen wailing of spirit and spite? And me, walking down the mulchy road... would I stop and listen? Could I bear to ignore the rhythm of my desires that were planted like acorns in my soul? How could a man with such a green thumb grow suc

Night Watch
Night falls over a village in the west. It seems like it is asleep, but do not mistake calm for catatonic. You are being watched. Get up. Get out. Why are they snuffling and shuffling around like animals on the prowl? Oh, that's right... Cold, cold night. Wind shears and hidden fears. Don't stop and stare, because you can't win a contest without playing by their rules. You wouldn't like how they play.

Shall We?
We could stand in the sidelines and watch Satan dance. Or we could join him in his jolly jig, prance to the beat of cloven hooves. He must hate my style, though, for when I move I find the dance floor empty and burning.

Mountain of a Meter
The effort was almost too much to bear. God, those steps seem endless. After she had looked upon them, she knew she could tell any and all who listened that she had indeed climbed Mt Everest In the end, it was the effort that counted. If it felt like Everest, then it was Everest. She already felt her boots dragged down with snow and ice as she walked up the path. There might have been lilies blooming on the edges of fresh green grass, but there was nothing but a cold, hard frost to greet her as she plowed through. She squinted through the bleak sunshine, hazy with wind and mist, hazy with a million different reasons to back down now. It was

Just Shoot Already
Stomach knots. Bile swells. Wait for me to take this shot, I have to make sure I'm ready. Steady? No. So this is what it's like to fall from a plane, to jump from great heights. Hellfire on your neck. My shoulders ache. Are you still waiting for me? Gods, this is taking a while. Just a shot. One shot, like so many before it. Line up the cue, look down, you can see how it ends. But the ball shattered. What now? A million different ways to die. It's just a cue. What do you mean, the ball didn't shatter? But I... Oh. I have grit in my eyes. Grit from a hundred years of disappointment. Grit from a thousand years of an ache. Roll my shoul

Fate
Mountains will crumble to ashes and dust. Cities will burn, lovers will rust. Fires will rage and the winds will gust, only then will we learn: to care is a must.

Perchance to Dream
I love you, A raging storm among islands, Vicious winds in the desert, Piling dunes high with sand. I love you, The cruelest of all tortures, Tied, bound together and starving, No release waits for me. I love you, Like the sugared strawberries, Frozen and ripe in the fridge, I like to eat them slowly. I love you, Something fierce and unforgiveable, Soaked wet with passion, The feel of your tongue. I love you, Just a lingering memory, A stain of white on a grey sheet, Like black and white photographs. I love you, Only in my dreams.
