Two-Finger Blues

Went in as a boy but I left as a man Sitting at the table making a stand Surrounded by the jokers, traitors and fools Left with nothing but these 2 finger blues 2 finger blues, 2 finger blues, think you got nothing, nothing to lose 2 finger blues 2 finger blues, better watch your…

Once upon…

Once upon a time there was a boy up on a tiny little hill that overlooked a tiny village being built… He thought about the tiny thoughts that people think that make them want to wake up, walk to work and sigh when in the blink of an eye life goes by in the blink…

Subway

The cumulus clouds – were changing overhead this city may never sleep – but he didn’t want to leave his bed Another dollar, another day – he made ends meet but felt defeated cooking home alone, put the rest away, – tomorrows lunch re-heated Out the door to the retail store – he knows the…

Age

The days are getting longer The years are getting shorter I feel so much younger I feel so much older We take every last laugh and when its time to cry here take my shoulder the only difference is the mistakes I make now I make them bolder.

Fooled Again

I woke up this morning and I looked into the sky and thought about my 31 years of life I’ve surely had a lot of moments of laughter and I’ve had a lot of moments of crying as a child I was taught it was wrong to lie as an adult I look around and…

Directions to the Brink

My souls steam, my bodys machine we went last night for shooting stars but the bullets wouldn’t reach. We are all lucidly hallucinating Narrating our movie inside our head making excuses for our success. I need directions to the brink I need a place where i can’t think Went to school but only learned a…

Echoes

Here I am sitting alone with my own echoes wondering how far down the rabbit hole goes Contemplating answers to questions I’ll never know Silently debating forces far beyond my control With thoughts like these who needs enemies A constant barrage of bullets from voices that never breathe And each one hits me so deep…
