What Love Is

Love is not something you feel, Loving is something you do. Love is about gritting your teeth, And seeing the hard times through. Love is not easy or hard, Love is not passive or fate. Love does not confer a good time, And it can often feel like hate. Love is a product of labor.... Continue Reading →

Unwanted Company

Unwanted company; Like flies between my ears. Their unrelenting buzzing That no one ever hears. Unwanted company; Stuck inside my head. Pestering and mocking me Set to go until I'm dead. Unwanted company; Buried deep inside my brain. Cruel wanton punishment, Negativity and pain. Unwanted company; A smiting from above, Callous in its mission To... Continue Reading →

Sunken Costs

The words on the walls tell me: To go on. And the voices that cast From the top of the mast say to Row on I follow a compass that leads from my heart I see how the waves here may tear me apart And I know. I know. The sound of the waves Keeps... Continue Reading →

Strategy Games

From an early age I have always loved strategy games; to face a challenge despite logistical complications. To try, and see what happens. There is something about seeing an opening, a moment of weakness, so temporary and seductive, and capturing it. It is so alluring, to find the best angle to attack, and the exact right...
