under the slanting rays
of the December sun, silhouettes of this sin city eke loneliness, eating the timid and spitting out carcasses. its skies, ash gray the refrigerated air moody reminding wayfarers that here is no place to come seeking solace. as apathy rains sirens howl and crime soars the need to look over the shoulder more pronounced than ever before. the bottom line is everyone’s looking to make money, fast, furious and frenzied in this, my hometown- New York.
If you don't find happiness in this life
It will find you in the next.
Sometimes there are so many simple solutions to a problem, but your anxious state of mind prevents you from seeing them.
Take a seat, relax your head, and alter your thinking and perspective. There's nothing wrong with you; it's simply a phase in your life. Don't let current happenings make you feel less than who you are and what you are intended to be. Nobody has life figured out yet; everyone is simply fighting their own battles. Don't just be downcast and beat yourself up all the time; it will only cause more harm than good. You deserve to be happy. Every day of your life, live as though you had everything. While you anticipate and wait for the big triumph, celebrate your tiny victories. And, thank God, it could have been far worse.
my friend called the other night
all tangled up in a thorny mess but i found no words that helped or reassured him as he drove down 95 the voice automated system, his sole companion the gps signals, amplified his shaky breaths the scene was so ****** they barely identified his body is this guilt that sits on my chest? lapping at my heart like a dog who sits in silence, waits in silence for a friend that will never come home
Knows no bounds Not distance, nor rules With the other they thrive Running along like gleeful hounds Eyes glittering like the most prized jewels - Jay M August 21st, 2021
Nothing is more powerful than that of a driven lover- let alone a driven pair of lovers.
The greater the revelation the deeper the mystery
The closer to the light the dimmer and further it is But compelled and captive, propelled not by will Accelerating into the void, a star amongst many Each and all inexorably to be our very own Destiny
Someone call a person who makes things happen
I’ve got an idea that will make you go splat From the warmth it will emit in your heart You’ll feel like you’re under attack Accompanied by the love that you'll ooze From your lustrous lap 🔥✨
There’s no post in the box
At the top of the drive. The sun won’t write us ‘fore the clouds arrive. Leaves and plastic Get caught in the rail. We pull them out So the gate won’t fail. But who walks by Or on bikes roam Beyond the corner From where we call home? We can only hide far away Behind the bougainvillea’s green, In our bricks and glass, In the spaces between. And still no letter And yet far better.
I can do anything
I have unlimited potential Just give me a chance I’ll do more and then some
