Burning Ground

I hoped you would hear my nameI hoped you would know I cameI hoped you would take the blameAnd regret the lost opportunityShe called me and told me to comeMy heartbeat, a heavy drumStanding there, my mind went numbBut you don’t know what you do to meTwelve months of this lonely thoughtAnd this minute isContinue reading “Burning Ground”

In the City

Thursday drive to see her againAugust rays, a hundred tenI was less distracted then–Heard from him, it’s been a whileLeave it behind just to see her smileIn my head, he’s at the top of the pile–Over-complicating mindAlone with her, left to unwindWhere are the words I’m bleeding to find–Unexpected guysAnd unexempted liesUninterested goodbyesBut I stillContinue reading “In the City”

September Sun

I should have locked it awayShould’ve closed my mouthShould’ve had more doubtsThan already filled my brainBut my heart’s too strongCarried me alongSent me laps around locked barsI could see right throughCouldn’t get to youSweaty palms and pounding heartsHow much longer hereLeft to drown in fear–I once was almost positive about you‘Til I tested positive forContinue reading “September Sun”

Prayer for Trust

I promised myself I’d rest in YouTrust is simple to the tongueBut easily spoken is easily brokenHeaven help me, I’m so youngSo clearly did I see that visionWhen the occasion took the leadHardly a moment ’til my soul followedAccelerating at gravity’s speedNot all desire leads to sinSometimes it’s sacred, Your designPainted to reveal Your plansMyContinue reading “Prayer for Trust”

Ray Road

Ray RoadYou’ve got a lot of thoughts for meA childhood friend in the driver’s seatAn old CD with a steady beat Ray RoadIn a suburb that I’ve knownIt’s grown on me more as I’ve grownNow country boy calls it his own She doesn’t know ’bout himThe way he lived inside my headShe never saw theContinue reading “Ray Road”


Little white photographHow much it holdsThat no one knowsFeelings untoldShe smiles like the sunBut let nuance revealThe glimpse you could stealIf you pull back the peelFrom the birth of the yearAt bedside it laysAnd it steals her gazeWith the rise of the raysHer new resolutionTo care for the heartThat was there from the startBefore sheContinue reading “Polaroid”


Sometimes a perfect visionTurns out an optical illusionSome seasons cause confusionAnd foresight can be bentI’m bruised from sacrificesDitching plans like they were vicesPaying the same pricesBut getting nothing from what I’ve spentCan I say what’s been said before?I just want to believe there’s moreAnd that hope will surviveAnd I’ll still be aliveAt the closeBut IContinue reading “Illusion”

Melancholic Mind

Forty past midnightPhrases crowding my mindLike headlinesToo quick to catchI guess this is what they meanWhen they say sometimes it’s hardTo know your own feelingsI watch the dots circle aroundThoughts loadingEmotions frozenSince I saw you were onAnd I remembered words from the pastI was fine before you sent themAnd maybe I still am nowOr maybeContinue reading “Melancholic Mind”


I’m stepping out to take this – reality hasn’t called in a whileThese four walls know me too well, and I’ve been in denialHow true are words on a screen when you can’t see the other side?Unmasking the precious ‘connection’ reveals a greater divideI’ve been in love with fantasies that might be true in partButContinue reading “Treadmill”

Broken Branches

Left. Dirt collects in the ridge of my soleRight. I breathe in as my heel hits the groundLeft. One pace further from the desolate messRight. One pace closer to turning aroundLeft. What I did just as conflict crept inRight. What I thought I was, flaunting my prideLeft. But the beat of my feet on theContinue reading “Broken Branches”


The silence makes me wonderWhy my chest still beats like thunderI wish I never fell deep under‘Cause I’ve always cared the mostYou played me like a six-stringEvery breath, you had me listeningBut winds turned words to whistlingAnd you became a ghost

50 Things I Like

With Thanksgiving coming up, and in an effort to form a more positive mindset, I thought I’d try to come up with fifty things I like. I’ve seen multiple people do this, and it’s pretty fun to see what little things stand out to them. And I had fun writing my own list, too! IContinue reading “50 Things I Like”
