My dog seems content
To sniff the ground
Taking censes
Of all around
For this is her's;
 .....Her territory,
.....Her domain,
I'm but along for the ride
That "bonding" shit
.....You know?
Bearing witness
I watch your lives
Neighbors going about
Friendly, self absorbed,
they say hi
While familiar;
Just know me as that guy
Who walks the dog.

I guess that I’m lazy and you’re a bit crazy, yes! I'll miss you when you go
It’s been such long time since we started out and there’s So much I want you to know
I cannot go with you and you cannot stay here, I guess God planned it this way
Goodbye to this end of my very best friend and I hope you are happy some day
While the sun sets lowly behind your eyes and a new dawn awaits you afar
I’ll remember those times, my partner in crime, celebrated on those distant stars
Yes! I’m going to miss you, and that comfort in knowing, the peace in having someone
For the past seven years and thirty three days if needed you always would come
I’m not really quite certain why we never were more than we are to this day
Yet still there is more than meets someone’s eyes, and tomorrow you go away.
So everyone, this is my very best friend and if you meet her treat her with kind
For she stood beside me when I was no one, as our paths became intertwined
I’ll miss you babe ……..

It was a nice day,
Nothing special
Just a day
Where most pass by
An endless stream,
One into another
Without notice
Dissected only by the chaos
Of monthly bills and collectors
Today was a day I recognized
Birds overhead
Fly, flutter and land
On the wires laid upon open skies
While sounds of tires
Form a choir
Throw off their gentle grind
Like thousands of voices
Low and constant,
without break
On the highway
Never ending
Yet to city boys
like me
the silence of sounds
white noise
man made
Gives us comfort
surrounds us
Lets us know we are not alone
In actuality
I could probably count my friends
On my fingers and hands
Today was a day I recognize

You head out
It’s late
But you’ve done it a thousand times before
It should be routine,
You don’t think about it
Get up,
Get dressed,
Skip breakfast
You’ll grab something later
Coffee’s fine
You’re in your car
Traffic seems lighter today
No, it’s the same
And it was yesterday
And it is today
And it will be tomorrow
Then she walked in
Now nothing fits
Nothing works
You scramble to find questions 
But you don’t want answers

I remember the first sight
How small I was
To stand at the edge
Staring at Infinity
Watching the waves
Massed in rows
Like so many armies
My board and I
Waiting to tame
No, not tame
Waiting to master

All I need
some tastey waves
cool buds!
I alone hear the echoes
that claimed the dark
which hide the shadows
.... they haunt me
like so many ghosts
of choices made
of roads I took
Tonight is nice
Peaceful, calm
Now content
with solemn stare
I walk along
And think of times
Where laughter ruled
of pretty maids
of failed attempts
at boyish charms
and ill intents
yet in my prime
and in my time
rest broken hearts
both theirs and mine.....
Tonight has not yet taken light
Yet this sun does't fade from sight
I walk
I like this time
All seems planned
All seems right.

The worst part of being man is not the dying

No, I believe the hardest part is the knowing
Of all creatures, we alone must wrestle eternity
But for only a very, very short while

In between we laugh and play and cry

Afraid of the dark 

Afraid to say God

Laura, drawing on paper

My life lay before me like chapters of a book
I find myself enjoying these pages as I grey
To look forward seems strange to me
No, I think I will hang in the present and look back
I do not feel sad that the best is behind me
I accept it for I knew it would come
Nothing is permanent
Like you

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

I let it wash over me
I like those moments,
they are short
without rush
there is a calm
like air,
like nothing
Where your skin disappears
It is but a brief spec
It is a tic of the clock
The bat of the lash
But in this time
Lies eternity
In eternity
Lies peace
And in peace
Is the reason to live.

The day the hurricane closed it's eye.....
....... I opened mine
and it's last breath.....
became my first
I am Danielle
It is my Birthday
I am 21today

Air so thick it sticks to every breath taken
Sun so hot and there’s a storm coming.
There’s a moment before the clouds move in
There’s a moment before the cold wind rushes
There’s a moment before the rain
That cooks you, your skin, it broils in its heat
Sweat pours out but you can’t tell
You are already wet from the humid air
Air that does not move
You remind me of a summers day
You remind me of the heat
Then comes the rain and it feels cool
Wind on rain soaked skin sinks to your core
Like you, it’s worth the wait.

It’s more of a feel than something
Captured like a soft sting, quick
Sharp and hidden in a white world
You feel that something’s wrong
Sorry is not a word
It does describe what’s occurred
And I know it’s not the right thing
To stop the night, to sit quiet, dream
Watching the dark move along in
Soft and flowered wrapped sarongs
Empty glasses, reflecting noise
Lights, brightened, hide the stars
Defeats a waxing moon
To cage souls within these bars
Forever lost to haunt this room
Never to try I just watch her go, leave,
Blend into the night she makes her escape
Out a door
While I, a fool 
could have not loved her more

We are funny,
People that is
We kill things
We don’t understand
We just kill things
We trod through life
We trample under foot
The land
The animals
Our fellow man
We shed our tears
We protest with our voice
We point our finger
We crucify
We Justify
We pray to God
Then Crucify him
or her
But don’t feel bad
Because we are fed
Happily ever after
Apple Pie
American Dream
Enjoy that TV
Everything is OK
Have fun at the mall
Buy something pretty
Just put it on the card
They'll take care of us
We trust them
We heard "family values"
In their speaches
In their words
We need not be concerned
For we are sheep
And we know not what we do.

I blame not me
For any of the issues
You seem to have
Like I am suppose to walk my walk
In a manner you approve
You judge me without judging yourself
You dis’ me without wearing my shoes
You claim me queer and strange
And I look at you like what the fuck!

I don’t know about myself,
Question every step that’s taken
In security's insecurity,
tense, shaken, a trait mistaken
Mistaken for weakness,
shows ne're a sound,
make not a sign
Stand tall,
protect the white,
soft underbelly
where fates resign
loins girded,
hiding deep
in blackened shadow
Cards to chest,
light reflecting,
polished ,
sharpenned blades,
held at ready,
prepared for battle
that looms and lurks
out the door,
emotions enter
killing floors
every moment,
life lived,
and every day
that holds in store
A quiet comfort,
to know thyself,
to be this man,
forever more.

Gentle is the stream that flows
Dark and passing waters deep
Near the place that all roads end
To lie inside where oceans sleep
What was once a crystal stream
melting snow and dazzling heights
Mighty was my gentle roar
As mountains fell beneath my might
Travel, bending ever so
I raced across the country side
Became a friend to all I know
To carry them far and wide
Confident I’d always be
Eternal rising suns descend
Serpent like within my shores
Could not predict this moment’s end
