Keep the darkness outside, keep your thoughts close and clear.
Pick up on these words and follow these fears
When you’re armed with your ideas, they’ll all disappear
Pick up on these words and follow these fears.

Welcome. This is just a simple website where I pour all of my thoughts, failures, loves, losses and experiences into words. I hope you enjoy, or even become inspired.

Thanks.

“Where I Roamed Pt II: Abandoned”

“Where I Roamed Pt II: Abandoned”
Anything, give me anything!
Don’t leave me here grasping for home
Everything, taken everything
Don’t leave me here grasping for home

I spent the better part of days just living for the moment.
I wanted out more than any could’ve asked for
Let the time come, I’m moving with a purpose
You took all that I’ve worked at
Fucking coward, my simplest pleasure
And now you’ve gone without a trace
No revenge, anger misplaced
Frustration with no end.

Anything, give me anything!
Don’t leave me here grasping for home
Everything, taken everything
Don’t leave me here grasping for home

I walked in circles, rending paths in pavement
I flailed about in disbelief, could not explain it
You left me high and dry, alone with no explanation.
I’ll fucking rant and rave
I’ll fucking end your days
I’ll fucking catch you
And kill off everything you love
I’ll destroy the world just to show what happens when I’m shoved.

I’ll fucking..

{Hey, yeah… I need you to come back. Yeah, I know..Thank you.”}

I’m just shattered in this moment because I never would’ve thought
I’d be the victim, the abandoned, left without a doubt
You took advantage, I never had a turn to move.
You took advantage, and now I sit under this moon
Alone without reprieve, to quietly seethe.

“Where I Roam Pt III. Fleur De Lis”

“Where I Roam Pt III. Fleur De Lis”

I lifted up from the ground, every hope, care and fear
Floating off from all the negatives, every reason in my ear
She said, “You’re gonna leave me fallen, cold and all alone”
With a smile that could’ve heated every day that I’d be gone.

I didn’t realize at the moment,
That all gravity had shifted
Every color palette flipped
My heart made it’s way back to my chest
I’d laid it out, and laid you down, you caught a case of feelings yet.
I said, “I’ll keep you warm long as you let me,
Bring heat with words and snaps and charm.

Hold Violet, Emerald,
Crimson, this beauty
Mix feelings, colors
Moments, stir gently.
Grant me serenity.

Rolling along at speeds above the posted, every silken word
You sing along to every rhythm, keep me hanging on their word
“Deep in my bones I can feel you, take me back to a time only we knew”
Let the day fade into obscurity while I take you back to our ending

I didn’t realize at the moment.
That the weather pattern lifted
Every leaf palette has shifted
Let your sleeve burn to your chest
You’d laid it all out on the line, though your words were uncertain
She said, “I’ve never thought that love was more than a choice that I made
I didn’t think I’d feel as if my heart could grow these legs.
You’ve let it loose to run, so lead me where you wish.
Just keep it safe from harm, cause I can’t take much more of this.”

Hold Violet, Emerald,
Crimson, this beauty
Mix feelings, colors
Moments, stir gently.
Grant me serenity.

“To Litchfield, All Of The Pieces ( feat. You Freestyle ’05)”

“To Litchfield, All Of The Pieces (You Freestyle ’05)”

I’ve never felt so wrong
Never felt so gone.
To you its funny,
But to them, I’m alone.
You get what you paid for
And I asked for change
But never so much for you to feel strange
The worst part is, its not you Im worried about
Its the best friend that left me
The day you set off.
No nothing,
No commune,
No phoning
No telling
She left me just feeling,
Like a first class blackmailing
A headline maker, a career killer
The cheat on your wife, got caught with her killer
In a mall, or a hotel, or somewhere too common
Common like how we’d end up arguing
I’m sure now whats gone now
Is not what I’m missing
Whats missing is two years of
faithful reminiscing
Of times of a smile not painted by pills
When walls put up could be mounted with hills
Though it always took time for me to build them
To make it, to scale it, to renew those feelings.
I don’t know if I can end this, I think it can go on,
Ill add as I live, we’ll call it my forever poem
The always, the always, the one that will always
Keep times spent with love, outside the dark hallways
Of my mind, of your mind, and anyone else
To hold you forever would only cause chances
To burn out or fade out, whichever’s your preference
Slow fade or quick burns, one shot regrets
In the meantime we’ll falter
We’ll keep them at bay
Til days when I’m leaving
And you’re there to stay
You’re falling, you’ve fallen and I’m gone away.
What is it exactly that makes you that way?
I know its redundant when I ask that question
Blame me the most, I’m the answer you’re missing
I said my goodbyes, if that’s what you’re wanting
I followed you down until you stopped to flaunt them
My problems
My failures
And every success
Reminding me always
I’m no longer the chest
[Excuse me, I meant the reason]

I meant the fucking season
I’m fall when you’re the springtime
Leaving faster, landing hard
I’m intending to beat these words into your heart
Remember December, you left me just breathing
The cold air so lonely while you were retreating
So close and so far, but just brought to light
Of the time that you spent here, though just out of sight
And it’s been years since we spoke
But I still get the feeling
That it’s all just the same
And nothings worth changing
And nothing ever changes
No fighting, no feelings
No loving, we’re reeling
It’s not like it once was,
We’ve reached our ceiling
The potential is long gone
Let’s coast to the ending.

“From Asheville, to Sarasota Pt III: The Sad Part About The Truth Is, Everything’s Prettier Without It”

“From Asheville, to Sarasota Pt III:The Sad Part About Truth Is, Everything’s Prettier Without It”

Today she’s going to wake up in the same way
Does her makeup in the mirror for her own sake
It’s the routine that keeps it all arranged
Here’s the shake-up, it’s gonna change
They say she’s getting weaker by the day
Times more precious than every other thing
She’s got thoughts of all she ever wanted to say

“There’s no soft truth in this time crunch
I can’t fake this to everyone
No longer can I watch the moon chase the sun”

To live our lives for all these times,
Til you decided we’ve had enough.
To make this thing, to break this love.
Til fate decided to make this tough.

Today she’s going to wake up in the same way
A glance at the mirror, there’s no reason for today
Lay around in a drugged daze, cause the dreams are far better
Then the reality that it doesn’t matter if her skins glazed
Here’s the shake-up, here’s the big change
There’s a boy who’s on the side for more of the same
But when her mind’s made up, she’s seldom swayed.

“There’s no reason to hurt you with lies
Of saying I’ll be there when summer dies
No longer can hearts walk in hand with fate”

“From Asheville, to Sarasota”


I’m falling faster than a comet
She knocked me out of orbit,
I was wandering around this system
Just waiting to be absorbed
I never had direction, just fuel and motivation
I never knew I was missing something so deep and interesting.

She said, “I like the way you roll through, pretending you’re unstoppable.
But I’ve seen the way you move, and you know that it’s improbable.
You’re gonna have to stop and enjoy the space around you.
So hover for a second baby, I’m the star that’s gonna shine on you.
I’ll illuminate your path, so you can find the destination
I’ll be the light for your life, so you’re never left guessing.
I’ll follow through and be with you until we’re both cold and gasping
I’ll make the galaxies pass by so fast you’ll never know that we’re dying.
Cause in the end, you’re the one I chose to flow into infinity
We know that there’s a finite end to the lives that we are leading”

“From Asheville, to Sarasota Pt II.”


I couldn’t fight your future,
You couldn’t hold my past
Fate stepped on toes,
I watched them swell
Until you said at last.

“Nothings real, no,
Nothing at all, we don’t exist.
We can climb together, until your grip on me just slips.”

I never understood the words, I swore I’d never let go.
“If it was up to me, I’d hold your hand until it broke.
I’ll continue on with one, pulling you up by my side.
So don’t you worry darling, I’ll never ever let you slide.”

And then she let go.

Safety Briefing

“Safety Briefing”

[Verse 1 – Slow build]
It’s been a long day inside,
And now it’s time to get shitty
Saturday night, we’re in a different city
Hit up every local bar
Make our way by foot or car
It doesn’t matter what the clock says cause
Bad decisions are coming after us

And right before we take the plunge,
Into illegal activities
My brothers turn in a stupor and say,
These fucking words to me

[Bridge-Spoken]
“I’m going to get her number! Dude, she’s a hostess!
She’s got baby teeth! Back down bro!]

[Chorus – Fast Part]
Don’t fucking drink!
Don’t fucking drive!
Wrap up your dick!
You’ll stay alive

Don’t swim at all!
Don’t beat your dog!
Check her ID!
You’ll make it out

These words of wisdom,
Could never fucking stay with me
I vi-o-la-ted
Over half our safety brief

[Bridge-Spoken]
“Well, do you want to play pool? Fuck Yeah!”
[Breakdown] Go!

[Verse 2]
Our words slow down,
We’re losing all control of thoughts now
Ten shots and strippers are the life all that we’re
ALL ABOUT!
Pile your asses in the car
Who’s good to drive? Who’s got the keys?
We’ll be alright, it isn’t far
Let’s fucking go! Get in Your Seats!
[Breakdown]

[Chorus – Fast Part]
Don’t fucking drink!
Don’t fucking drive!
Wrap up your dick!
You’ll stay alive

Don’t swim at all!
Don’t beat your dog!
Check her ID!
You’ll
Make
It
OUT
[End Breakdown]
