hindsight
DAF 3h
i thought we had forever
maybe that was my mistake
had i known our time was borrowed
perhaps then i would've made

more

of what hour glass allowed
perhaps you'd be with me now

Livin in the bus
DAF 3d
Sola takes her lattes
So late
Solar panels
Fuel the drive
Solstice to solstice
So longs and goodbyes
Come easy on the road
And on the wheels roll

If I Were Sober
DAF 4d
I'm a social drinker
I drink whenever I'm around people
Or just prior to a social engagement and right on thru it
I put on a cheerful ruse knowing people will buy it
People are always looking to be sold something
So I sell it
I celebrate.
They celebrate.
We celebrate together.
For a moment in time all is well
Rather all seems well
Though
I'm sure they wouldn't like me if I were sober
More importantly you wouldn't like me if I were sober
I don't like me when I'm sober
Something I wrote a while back. I can now say I'm content with a clear mind

pit stops and pit stains

DAF 5d
the stains will not come out.
though
i have started to like the way
they've begun to fade into the fabric
almost indistinguishable from cloth
as if they were not stains at all

sometimes letting go
is the only way to hold on

Cigarette filled lungs
In hell with a smile
Ash covered fingertips
Might stay for a while

often i can see the sadness
through the smiles and the jokes
laughter
just can't seem to drown
eyes that cry out

only when it's silent
do the thoughts speak up
perhaps they hide
in boisterous mind
mummering amongst themselves

They say
“Much better than before”

Tell myself the same
Still

words don't do it justice
no sound vocal chords could make

the quickened pace of panic
anxiety swells around adams apple

ball of yarn
DAF Jul 31
beams of moon shoot down upon
these shoulders tense and knotted
help me heal both soul and body
bring health to what has rotted
knees on pavement i request
let rest find me as i travel
grant me peace as i lay
once i have been unraveled

love is not a problem
just find it hard to stick it out
though falling is quite easy
you soon find you hit the ground

1.5 fl oz
DAF Jul 16
This morning I woke up
And didn't recognize the room
The smell though was familiar
***** spilling out of pores

I am not Happy

Though last night I seemed ecstatic
Spirited by spirits masking all the sadness
I wonder when the wheels fall off
If i can go the distance
Will inebriation take vacation
Will I be a statistic
Jul 14 · 50
probably maybe
DAF Jul 14
unsure of every thought
no wonder i am second guessing what i write
though must one be certain
to put ink upon paper

lost my head
while searching for
my mind
so wrapped up in seeming well
insanity in vanity

caramel words were spilling out
now dried up on the carpet
promises that don’t age well
etched into the plaster

i hope the song they play is lovely
that the tune will fit like missing pieces
to the puzzle of my life

footsteps into fog
soul pointed one direction

unsettled

we were screaming
then there was silence
unsure of which was worse
Apr 9 · 43
empty prayers
DAF Apr 9
beginning to get drowsy
i can tell by the way my eyes
are begging to get to sleep
like when heartbreak asks for mercy
knowing it won't come
sorry this keeps getting taken down
Apr 8 · 29
oh well
DAF Apr 8
if ever i could do without
it seems that it consumes me now
with every breath my lungs withdraw
another second chance disappears

Tick Tock

Time does not always tell
     Decides it's lips are sealed
       Although it may tick you off
Appears the clock won't talk

Plastic to the touch

Time Will Tell
DAF Mar 16
Hands of time hold many truths
Treasures in the wristwatch
Secrets locked inside the clockwork
Though time is not the only thing
Hourglass can tell
Each grain of sand has whispered
It has to share as well

scribble scrabble
DAF Mar 11
dull pencils scrape the pages
in and outside lines
sentences bounce up and down
tell stories of the times

If So
DAF Mar 10
When someone dies are they forgiven?
Not by some omnipotent being in a white gown
Rather by the ones they have wronged?
Do grudges cease when the last breath is drawn?
If so why?
If so how.

Overzealous
DAF Mar 10
I always eat the soup before it cools down
I’ve been burnt many times over
Yet I never let it settle
