time is the enemy

Not going to feel this pain forever

Love makes me suffer
but it’s worth every second

I turn up the music to full blast
then come to quiet
stark reminders of the mental riot

Trying out a diet
of nothing

fasting for 24 hours
meditating for an hour
run 5 miles until I am tired and sour

I must release these poisons
reaching out for help

hold this pain close
it will take you higher
than you have ever gone before

I know what I need
it is only time that is the enemy

Jump in head first

Well versed in the perverse
and in telling how to reverse this curse
from the best to the worst
the test is how we rehearse

Fell in love with becoming immersed

Head first
all or nothing
fall for passion, gunning for reaction
failure is part of the art of practicing action
real good at stealing should’s back
would you in fact please take a crack
at this pact of being more concerned with keeping track

how bout that?
this experiment is your body
mind finding your soul’s hobby
I hear that is how you can stay happy

catch me if you can
I am the gingerbread man
who gingerly treads on demand
supply’s biggest fan
why try only using one hand
with the other tied behind your back

Write everyday, for yourself

Write everyday, for yourself
almost as quickly as you can.
My hand has forgotten the pen, its old best friend
The keyboard has me bored
The screen has turned obscene, with constant flashing and flickering.
Remember our journey’s in journals?
Smoke filled rooms of intoxicated slumber
Creativity sparked by force,
A demand enforced by brute strength,
now the funnels open calmly.

Pour your love into this world,
like a father figure raising a boy or girl,
the future’s options unfold like a flower
of countless pedals,
take time to count each one,
the moment will eventually come,
when enough is enough,
after the tough stuff what else could be this rough?
