Letting Loose the Angels

He calls "Olly olly oxen free," and the angels come to see, yet the demons hear this call as well and rise to eavesdrop from hell. He tells of yet another Reich, overpopulation, global warming and the like, sending his angels far and wide to search for the devils, wherever they hide. But with each… Continue reading Letting Loose the Angels

Survivor

It's not boredom or a lack of better things to do, nor is it sociopathic tendencies. It's being in control of what everyone sees. It's being afraid to be the real me. It's navigating a hundred false truths and telling them without rue. You would call me a pathological liar if only you knew, but… Continue reading Survivor

Dog Days

Come here, little one. Hold still, this won't hurt a bit. Yes, we'll have tons of fun but for now, stay calm and sit. I'm... I'm sorry... It'll be over in a flash. Smack! I'm sorry! I didn't mean to— All better? I know it hurts so please be careful next time, I don't want… Continue reading Dog Days

Hughes Blues Part Four

It's been a weird couple of weeks. And on today, the day that I have finally resolved to be the day that I get back to work on my novel for real, I'd rather not leave you with some short, half-assed update. Instead, in the spirit of looking back to reacquaint myself with Hai, I… Continue reading Hughes Blues Part Four

Scenic Route

Addicted to the nothing of sleep and everything it brings, they gave me a new hat to try on and with one yawn, it brought me dreams. It brought me visions of driving, cars rushing past me. The scenery shifts into things that can't be, but forgotten just as easily. Then I awake in my… Continue reading Scenic Route

Wake-up Call

Graduate from darkness in three simple flashes. Source unknown. It wakes you up regardless. It reminds you of a camera, three shots you took of yourself while you slept much like a samara's descent. And you watch, examine the stills of someone familiar plunging, disconnected from the remembering. It's not the falling, but the landing… Continue reading Wake-up Call

Write Tunes – Glow

As much as it pains me to not do something creative today, I really just don't have the energy to do so. I'm not feeling too hot lately so this is about all I can manage. Another chill song. Who would've thought? I'm on some antibiotics so I'll hopefully be back to 100% soon. In… Continue reading Write Tunes – Glow

As Maniacs Do

We're as close as one is to nine. Ten goes looking for zero and gets caught up in what's mine. And I tell him it's none of his business because it isn't. But I appreciate the company. He's surprised to find nothing, more hurt than one usually is but it still stings to learn that… Continue reading As Maniacs Do

Elevate

What brings you here on such a night, under satellite? The sirens echo like it's such a chore. Oh, the blood and mortar. I escaped to a quiet resort, into a room full of all sorts of people, people who remain, waiting to be elevated. Out of order. Fixated on those who reside above. Separated… Continue reading Elevate

Write Tunes – Wanna Move Like You

Ya know. I actually had a pretty interesting and thought provoking dream that would make a fantastic dream poem but I'm at wit's end on where to start. Think I'm gonna play around with it over the weekend and hopefully have more interesting dreams. For now, I'll just leave you with another quick song, mostly… Continue reading Write Tunes – Wanna Move Like You
