These are my works. You find mostly poetry, or some semblance, here.

Though she crack, though she splinter under pressure, She knows how to hone her soul. And so breaking her bones will just supply her with sharper teeth. With murder in your mind, You left her alone with the wolves But she’s kind to dogs Knows a lullaby to sooth the hungry Jaguar By night sheContinue reading ““She””
From the Author I’ve been inspired lately to experiment with other forms of poetry. I tried, reader- I really tried to touch into the recognizable, like a Sonnet or Limerick, but damn, do I despise incessant rhyme. Anyways; I’ve included some basic information on the forms I’ve listed below, as well as my first impressionContinue reading “Naani, Katauta, and Sedoka”
The truth appends to my open soul I’ve known I’ve known I’ve known If you flick out your tongue- Thoughtfully, carefully You can taste the violence in the air With undertones of grey dream You can taste all our intents Dispersed in entropy. I’ve seen you I’ve seen you I’ve seen you I’ve watched andContinue reading “Pining for the Whole World”
This is the beginningI’m starting something new from the bedrockThough it aint nothing fairytale like a clean-break;From what broke off of meA broken ego remainsBut these jagged stonesThis mud and bileI’ll pound them downAnd grind them on my teethTill there aint no difference between the bile and meI’ll set an altar to God hereAsk HimContinue reading “Bedrock”
*Content Advisory* (This one be raw) (Seriously mom/dad/preacher, don’t read this) Someone stole my inspiration. Something, something, Like a thief in the night I’d like to tell you what they looked like And what they wore, But It’s too quiet and it’s too cold To wear your heart out on your sleeve Someone took myContinue reading “THIEF”
We are an ocean Dashed upon the rocks Scattering seafoam Scattering sand and sustenance for crabs Our existence is as simple as it is large And the breadth of our embrace Surrounds every bit of land The moon pushes and pulls us The sun warms us We sing to the air to beckon cool breezesContinue reading “Whale Fall”
No one knows the day or the hour but I know that it’s coming in time When the oceans will fill to the brim Set to overflow onto land A great and impending wave looms over the island people And when it breaks, it stands taller than the oil rigs. On the ground, red algaeContinue reading “The Great Flood”
I am not a good man. Nor am I wise. Or strong. But still, Don’t let me fizzle out… I have hated my neighbor. I have hated myself. I have hated the life that you gifted me. But still, Please don’t hate me… It’s a fool’s prayer, I know, Adonai. But I’ve loved you sinceContinue reading “Plea from the son that Grieved the Holy Spirit”
FROM THE AUTHOR *First things first- sorry about the formatting- WordPress is unkind to the text-alignment needs of we poets, but I felt the alignment was important enough to make sacrifices in order to reflect. Hopefully I’ll find a way to represent this more cleanly in future posts!* The way that the human synapse worksContinue reading “The Wise-Man’s Dilemma”
The world pulsates through her bare chest as she dances Ankles tasting the oceans wake The flowers frilled in her hair Connect in constellations of woven grass and ebony strands They strum the song of the land She’s hungry And abandoned But the wind tickles her nose And her mind The ethos of the treeContinue reading “Passion Flowers”
