…and out spouts a mediocre poem without a title, because titles mean the work has reached a state of completion


my friend and nemesis

in the same stroke.

my fingers tapping

across the keys,

words unspoken

by lips, teeth and tongue.

confessed by fingers

tap, tap, tapping.


until each letter

is deleted.

leaving nothing

but a blank screen

and a full mind.


leaves the truth


until my heart

stops beating.


don’t come installed

with buttons

magic enough

to erase thoughts.

Woo hoo! Woo hoo!

It’s not my best work, but it’s a poem nonetheless. If I wasn’t half asleep I would do a happy dance in the middle of the street. My seven mile bike ride took more out of me than I had to give.

It takes a lot for me to share something new with the world, so please don’t judge too harshly.

7/15/12 (untitled as usual)

questions unasked

leave words unspoken.

secrets of the past

love once grew

but it’s been stagnant for a while.


can’t find the truth in life’s maze

twists and turns get in the way.

no time to get stuck in this craze,

this tangled web gets worse each day.

need a magic potion

like a fairy tale

such a silly notion.

stormy skies send hail



upon my mind.

answers hide themselves away

locked in a place only I can find.
