This Quiet Road
"This Quiet Road"
Given life, wasted youth
Lost my way in middle years
No excuses, dusting myself off
One foot in front of another
Late bloomer, my season's gone
Making up for all lost time
Brightest colors, I've ever shown
Refusing to wilt and dry out
Keeping warm, youth once again
There's no sense in cold and bitter
That kills us from within
Self involved, backed in a corner
Walking along this quiet road
The sun is high in the sky
Assuring there's plenty of time
For the true destination to settle in
Finding my inner spirit, alive
Re-emerging my true callings
Setting in motion, clearing the fog
It's time to live again

Untitled Spoken Word (11/18/13)
Morning comes and my eyes open. Waking in a curled up position over a pillow I had apparently placed between my legs. I ponder the dream, usually unfortunate, from the night before and take a deep breath. I scuffle to the bathroom and then try and smile at my furry friend dancing happily at the sight of me awakening. I wish I could share in her excitement. I grumble in my thoughts as I put on my pants. Then my shirt. Then my shoes. Still in thought, I routinely grab my keys and attach the leash. As we walk outside and begin our usual trek in the cold, my mind drifts. This is my time to think. Especially in the morning, I ponder my present day and yesterday. Pondering the present day is usually easy. I will go upstairs and feed my friend and then sit down with a book and try and forget about all these feelings roaming inside my head like clouds inside a crystal ball. The past and even distant future is far more complex and complicated. Over my, admittedly, many years, I have been told o

Memories of a Future - Rough Draft
I can taste anticipation
My lips upon your neck
I can sense your submission
My arms enveloping you safely
Guiding you from darkened alleys
The look in your eyes devoting
Speaking so much through tears
And subtle, genuine smile
My dreams come and go
Though your existence remains
Unable to see your face
Fading memories of a future

I challenge circumstance
Stepping forward in blindness
Do I plea? Do I beg?
For my antidote to darkness
You know that I worship you
Wherever you may be
In our kingdom of solace
Hoping you come home soon
My dreams come and go
Though your existence remains
Unable to see your face
Fading memories of a future

Find me in candlelight
Curled upon the floor
Though normally the rock
I long to be held tightly tonight
All souls have their breaking point
None made of stone as they claim
Tomorrow, I'll gain back strength
Tonight, touch and sooth this agony
Be my angel in the darkness
Your sparkling eyes of intensity
Tonight, my trust in your hands
Inspire me to desire and achieve
Only you bring this light
That brightens and heals the chaos
Settling me back to contentment
Returning me to my balance and insight.

This Loving Fire.
In this hole that's sunken in
Searching for some way to win
Sunrise then sunset, please repeat
Yet still standing on both my feet
Parts of me missing for so long
Wondering if I'm already gone
Yet I stand again and again persistently
While mourning these fragments of me
I must awaken, must reassemble
My lungs still breathing, still alive
Open my heart, dare to expose me
Over thinking, frozen in fear
Feeling so far away, yet so near
To the soul that still lives inside
Scared off and forced to hide
Still, this is in no way the end
As I sing the songs, my loyal friends
Until I cannot climb any higher
Nothing can put out this loving fire
I must awaken, must reassemble
My lungs still breathing, still alive
Open my heart, dare to expose me
