Husk
Husk.
I feel the fire behind my pain,
But I ignore it for my sanity's sake,
I feel the shadow of sorrow in my brain,
And through these both I know I'm awake.
I feel that thunder in my brain,
That echo of pain in my heart,
I feel that chill run through my vein,
And with these I fight to not fall apart.
I fight back that savage cry of pain,
I feel that echo of many a past sin,
I seek to wash it all away with the tears of rain,
And to run from all those demons beneath my skin.

Literature
I speak/I sing
I Speak. I Sing.
For those who have lost their name,
And for those without a voice,
I will respect them all the same,
But it is not like I ever had a choice.
For those who cannot sing,
I will share for them a song,
And may my words skyward wing,
And may my song echo all day long.
I shall speak for those who are lost,
And I will always sing while I may,
I will pay whatever the cost,
And shall do so until my dying day.

Doubt
Doubt.
That coal black devil sits in my mind.
It smiles it's knowing smile,
It has always been so cruel and unkind,
And it has roosted there a long while.

Poet
Poet.
A Poet is a splendid thing,
These strange shapers of words,
They are all Bards who do not sing,
And have minds that soar like birds.

When Heroes Fall
When Heroes Fall.
Excuse me while mourn,
As I watch the world go by,
Silently I shed my tears,
And in whispers I say good bye,
Now my soul is now so heavy,
And in pieces my heart does lie,
Pain does hold me tight,
I will be left wondering why,
For this is what always happens,
I will mourn when my heroes die.

Sanctuary
Sanctuary.
I built a playground in my mind,
A haven for my inner child,
A refuge from the world unkind,
A place for him to run wild.

All Father and His Children
All Father and His Children.
In the beginning from the darkness that was all there was came The Nameless One. Alone in this expanse of blackness The Nameless One brought light to the darkness. Next The Nameless One brought forth his first children. The First as they came to be known by, were loved greatly by The All Father as they came to know The Nameless One. Next the All Father with the help of his children created the realms and the heavens above them. On the Realms was created the Children of the First. The All Father decreed that The First were responsible for their Children. Time passed and The First created other creatures to live in the realms with their Children. The All Father’s children, The First were not perfect in their creation. They schemed amongst their number and waged battles to win the love of their Children. When these battles claimed the life of one of the First, The All Father took his Children from the realms. He put them in the heavens and came before th

I dabble in weird toon work, having my own 'strip' called Strange Days and different works on a few different characters like Bedlam Boy (The Master of Chaos) or Freezy the Bipolar Bear to name two.

That's about it about what I do.

I am married, have a beautiful wife and two awesome sons.

And I cannot think of anything else to put.

I watched American Gods and as I hoped it got my mind ticking over. The five poems I uploaded tonight were all written while watching it.

It is good to be writing again

Love the new batch of pics friend.    It would be great to see this in a book one day.  I'd definitely get a copy.  

Your writing is also exceptional.  I especially like the dark ones.  Probably because I love the genre of horror a lot.  But I could see a lot of those poems at the beginning of a good movie and such.

Anyway, awesome work as usual.  I'm glad you have an office set up.  It means more goodies for us all.  :bounce:

Keep up the great work friend!  :#1:
