Simple Complexities that Jungle Gym my Mind

I write sometimes...mostly when my brain knows my soul needs it. I should've created this a long time ago. So, here are some words I should've had the strength to put into action but sometimes ink and paper are way easier than mumbles and cartwheels.
All I do.

All I do.

Too cold outside to breathe deeply

Too cold outside to breathe deeply

I hate being me but I REALLY hate not being me.

Ode

WE are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.

With wonderful deathless ditties
We build up the world’s great cities,
And out of a fabulous story
We fashion an empire’s glory:
One man with a dream, at pleasure,
Shall go forth and conquer a crown; And three with a new song’s measure
Can trample an empire down.

We, in the ages lying
In the buried past of the earth,
Built Nineveh with our sighing,
And Babel itself with our mirth;
And o’erthrew them with prophesying
To the old of the new world’s worth; For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.

—Arthur O’Shaughnessy

The Keys

I’m so sorry that I let you down
I said I’d be here for you always and I think you said that too
I’ll keep that promise even if you don’t
Through out all of this fantastic tragic mess, my life is forever changed because of you

Counting My Threads

Darkness and then dawn
I’m afraid and frayed
I pour my head into my hands
Another cup of coffee
Another whiskey shot
Sometimes my thoughts chain me to this bed
I’m no longer living
Even though I’m not dead

Get Out, You Ghost!

Remember when I saw red?
And you read every note in my cold heartbreaking requiem
You could never lie in your own deathbed
And I was stuck living in your undeniable mayhem

Where Are You Now?

If you can see my eyes through these steel bars then please say it out loud
I’ve been waiting for someone to unchain me
Break me from my cell
And carry me home even though my flesh is dirty and my heart in pieces

I’ll Let You In.

I cried to you
All my scars laid out for you to see
Never saying once that “everything is ok”
You knew it wasn’t
You knew you shouldn’t
That night you captured my heart and then set it free
