Something Different

Stuck Choking On the Words

Surrounded in ash I begin to wonder
When this all had to end
Reflection of everything I hate
Your name tattooed on the inside of my skin
Hate to hate you any longer
If I could change one thing it wouldn’t be me
Self confidence in the worst of situations
Breaking open thoughts, looking for something
A memory of when this mattered
End of draft one, it is okay to turn away
A new level of dissatisfaction and regret
Blinded by a dying sun
The dark spots around your eyes permanently stuck
Don’t blame you for wanting more
Got nothing left to tell, if only my brain would shut up

 

A Crooked Smile For the Devil Inside Us All

I’m a fool for believing, I’m a fool for dreaming
A jester, a joke in my own head and yours
I tell lies to tell stories
Painted pictures of deceit
Yet what is there to believe
Our lives so dull though they still manage to cut
Like blades in our hearts, the blades in our backs
Slowly killing any real thoughts we have left
Work hard to work harder
Each day a testament of will
The hard part isn’t the work
The hard part is giving in
Dragging ourselves through sin
Blood on the tracks and I can’t resist
To keeping digging in
I wanted this more than it seems
An end to the beginning, a plot without a device
The words are deceitful but they feel so real

I wrote a children’s book called, “Who the Fuck Cares.” Looking for illustrators or anyone interested.

    1. The book is very dark… It is kind of a joke around our house… My daughter is the greatest thing to ever happen to me… but she likes to point our the most random things… like that we have a ceiling fan or that a door is closed….

      Well… one day she spilled her dinner all over the floor… no big deal… I asked her to help me clean it up… instead she kept saying… “Daddy look,”…. “Look, Daddy,”… Still cleaning up the mess, “Yes, sweetheart?”… “Daddy… Look…”… so I look up from the mess… “Yes, dear?”… she points at the ceiling… “Fan.”… and the first thing to pop in my head was… Who the Fuck Cares… would be an awesome name for a children’s book…

      That’s how I come up with these great ideas…
