Caressing Keys

My head begins to spin
I squeeze my eyes shut
So many unfinished stories
The year has been rough

Write a poem, maybe two
That will hold them over
It’s not enough, I’m overdo
Time to pull back the covers

My palms rest on the keys
As my blood begins to pump
My fingers twitch awake
For so long they’ve been numb




Missing Pieces

When you call
I come running
I know you’re out there
Can you hear me?
The flashbacks keep coming
Can you see me?
Staring from across the world
Could you take me?
Away from all this chaos
Maybe break me
Do everything you wished for
When you get lonely
Giving the attention you dream of
Do you honey?
Want it all laid out in the open
We could both
Fix the hearts that we’ve had broken

Lemons for Lemonade

We Humans

We do the craziest things

Ignore someone

Attempting to retrain the brain

To try and get rid of

What drives us insane

Controlling road rage

Just by switching the lanes

Stupid humans

Life just isn’t that easy

It’s hurtful, it’s messy

It’s so fucking sleazy

And you have to deal with it

Love in it

Sleep in it

And there are no refunds

You’ll just have to keep it.


You Again (Crush)

I know that smile

But the shyness is gone

I’m surprised you came back

Where’s the fear you once had?


The rules

You feel

Should not apply,

And I’m sure

Deep down

You’re a really nice guy


But your success stains you

It’s just something I do


These walls were in place

Long before you came

With your cute smile, deep dimples

And nonexistent mane


You walk away with determination

And your thoughts on this crush

I shake my head and watch you go

With a heart that I can’t trust





I caught you staring

Over at me

Beneath the old oak tree

You shyly look away

A moment too late

And I smile for you to see


Childhood games

At our age are fun

It’s exciting for once

To come undone


Throw caution to the wind

For a minute or more

To admire

What nature has brought forth


But our limit

Has been set

This is as close

As we will get

To this feeling of rush

Which will remain

Just a crush


People love free romance!

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

Fun Facts About My Blog

  • There is a music video after each chapter.  The reason is,  in order for me to get into the mind set I want for that chapter.  I find a song that relates and then I listen to it on repeat until I finish the chapter.  So what ever song you see at the end of the chapter, chances are I’ve listened to it at least 100 times.
  • “And Then There Was Me”  was supposed to be a short story.  After several request for more I’ve extended it, and even I don’t know how the story will end.  Morris seems to be pretty popular though.
  • A really good song could change the entire plot to one of my stories.
  • I start writing every story on my IPhone using the notepad app. Then if I think I have something good I transfer it over to Word.
  • Most of the story plots come to me in my sleep and I wake up sometimes at 3 a.m. and start writing on the IPhone.  My brain just never stops.
  • I think it’s pretty obvious my Music addiction is about as bad as my Romance Addiction.
  • I’m really not as cool as I seem on my blog and probably won’t ever post anything personal unless I won one of those awards where I have to answer  a million questions.  Then I would probably feel obligated to do so and give way more information out than I should.
