sitting/letting thoughts roam/throughout me/I can feel/the pain/in my arms/of a memory/I’d rather forget/my teeth clinch/as I remember/something beautiful/that burned/into my brain/yesterday/and I think/of the future/very broadly/not life or death/or art to create/or children/or hell/or heaven/just the emptiness/like an interstate/through west virgina/at four/in the morning/and wild thing/is playing/on the radio/and I remember/my mother

you came in/from the rain/dripping/we shared/a cigarette/and then/you were gone/like the storm/but that smoke/still lingers/sweetly haunting/in the silence/of today’s twilight

I stop these thoughts/before they start/I’ve traveled this road/living in worlds unreal/but interacting with people/as if they were on/the same level/on the same drug/it ends tragically/with my broken heart/somewhere along the road/the silence and the whiskey/do not comfort/like a kiss goodnight.

the untold story of ginger

leave a comment »

I remember the moment you said that you would follow me anyway. the world seemed endless for the first time, freedom felt more than a word and love was real REAL! thoughts of carving our own eden out of some small piece of untouched america; thoughts of waking to that face that face of limitless delight. but would the ghosts still find us? haunting us in our dreams. we can run. we can run. live some life. have some fun. but know that everything sits so close to the edge; the tiniest vibration could bring armageddon.

the day before/the end of the world/and everything feels fine/the hell/behind the clouds/may linger/and reveal tragedy/but tomorrow’s worries/are for tomorrow/I love you/I love all this/and to think/about anything else/would be sacrilege

this energy that birthed you
created the gods and myths
and evil evil things
eventually turning towards beauty
but with our narrow consciousness
we often mistake this for tragedy
negatives do happen for some reason
if only to put you in a certain place
at a certain time if only to feel
some small emotion you’ve never felt
