Take a trip, get away Do it with your mental Escape it with your brain You can leave, today Feel freer, for cheaper No need to pay for a plane Unleashing your soul on the page Can do just the same

Head-space under siege Brain like pearl harbor in the early 20th Fire in the water! Duck for cover! Thoughts are on the fritz Scattered and forlorn I’m exhausted from the racing, Scorn from the losing score Been stuck on pacing back and forth, Like a borderline version of Usain Bolt Too good at this for […]


Are the lonely really that alone? There’s SO many of us out here. Aimlessly wandering as one. Together in thought. Pretending we co-exist somewhere, with something, to make-up for the lack of a someone. We’re full of ourselves. Hyped with desperation for the fleeting feeling of hope as each day passes, mundanely unchanged. None of […]

We get too wrapped up in the now. You. Me. Her. Him. Them. All of society is guilty, but who’s to blame? The little necessities of life (especially in our current advertisement splashed nation) can’t be accomplished while avoiding some type of distraction or unnecessary stressor. No wonder so many people here lose it. Snap. […]

26 and still escaping sleep like the plauge. Could it be that I’m attempting the impossible by holding off the dawning of a new day? Worried that waking could lead to God knows what. Some days after waking, there’s no desire in leaving bed. Other days I can’t even rest my head, knowing all of […]

Expressionism – Purgatory – Winter 2012

Expressionism – Purgatory – Winter 2012


Purgatory, the one place where everything feels despondent. Void of the pleasures, distractions and anguish. Blank white space. Vocal-less. Deaf. Mundane. Just floating. Pretending to exist. I can’t stand it, but I can’t stand to leave it, either. Real life contains the unknown, and that’s just as terrifying as anything. Women, conversations with them seem […]

Reflective Sunday Update


Some more current pieces on my general state of mind and introspective understanding of life. These were all written in the past two months. Enjoy.   (Written 2-25-2014) The definition of irony may be attempting to cure your social anxiety inĀ  by sitting smack dab in a sea of strangers. Been at this strange little […]

Back-logging cont.


More past poetry about women. Surprised?   Confidence. Spilled like paint. Splatter the walls, with thick strokes of thanks. Tell her that she’s pretty. Quickly. Before she forgets me. Fidgety, Palms are even turning clammy And I’m perspiring anxiety So if you look you understand me. Beads of sweat, Piled up. You’re gonna sense my […]

What I’ve Learned

What I’ve Learned


The month is only about halfway through but I want to make this a regular thing. Some reflection and outlook on what’s happened in life, and what I’ve taken from it is important in progressing as a person. Taking the time to properly process things sometimes isn’t the easiest. Life gets busy. That’s no excuse. […]

Some Sunday Night Poetry


It rained a lot this weekend in the state of Minnesota. Outdoors and in the minds of many people I love and care about. Myself included. You know what they say, “when it rains, it pours”. Old sayings remain around for a reason. Rain brings vitality and life to new beginnings. It’s about time they […]
