one of those poems i had to pull off the road to write down….

“please leave a message….”

i am crushed under circumstances
too heavy to ignore.
i am actively resisting as they seep
through every pore.

my dreams are tragic comedies carousing
through my brain.
they bounce inside my tampered thoughts
to annoy and entertain.

i cannot seem to quell the ache which
i have no right to hold.
so i stand in structured silence as
i watch it all unfold.

and i know my heart will bore of me and
my thoughts will waft away….
still i cannot help but beg, “oh please,
just leave my mind today.”

  1. Would love for you to email me. I love your writings. Powerful stuff. I also adore you as you can tell. God I wish I could write like you do.
    Fuck fuck fuck, born with a wooden spoon in my mouth, and a broken pencil no eraser. LY

    1. thank you. : ) i’ve spent an immensely long time & consumed many cups of coffee to get my writing where it is today….i’m happy to hear my efforts were successful. sorry to hear about your pencil….perhaps you could launch a kickstarter project to get a new one? if you lived here, i’d loan you one of mine. : )

      what did you want me to email to you?
