Adrift

When replaced with robots, clones of Adam, better than we ever believed. No need for Eve.

Faces planted to screens, conversations with the dead, no longer held obscene. What you mean to me.

I’m a place, adrift in celestial rifts, spent grace on worldly things. More valuable than you.

Joyride

I don’t want this ride to end.
So you see it for what it is.
Rainbow spew and hearts renewed
fighting the good fight no one ever wins.

I don’t want this ride to end.
Somewhere ripped from the headlines,
Internet stole you and forced smiles all around.
Look at your facade now.
Nothing to fear, and nothing to dread.
I don’t want this ride to end.

We all run out of gas.
All the exhaust hangs on, hangs out.
You breathe it in and swear its all you have.
There are rings of smoke everywhere you look.
Hide under the low lying clouds, where sunlight has it’s way with you.

I don’t want this ride to end.
Keep your eyes on what’s ahead
…and your hands on the wheel.

Empower

Ostracized, Scapegoat, Failure, Pariah,
live your life or you’ll die here.
You got your claws in me
or maybe it’s the other way around.
The scratches, emblematic of a lost cause,
now you’re grounded.
No one sees it but me.
Your will is so much stronger than mine,
but that got us in trouble plenty of times.

Just remove yourself from yourself,
get back to the world of living things
Take it back by any means.
Leave the view over shoulder.
Rear view and scenery,
the only life we knew.

This is my friend Caitlyn’s writing. Very mature for a 21 year old. Enjoy & share…

I’ve been waiting my whole life
For a promise to bloom
Rings of Saturn on my finger
Lost in explosive thoughts
And silent resonance
Of a tiny diamond

Beneath the black sky
And blankets of summer
Dew drop eyes
With orbital embraces
You pull me in further
Forever we will fly

Be my empty space
In a world too much
Be the fill I need
When my home is empty
I need you by my side
When stars no longer shine

They say defying gravity
Is godliness
I float from place to place
Space to space
With you
So I guess you’re my savior

Start with any gaze
Map out what we have
Lay it on a table
Try to put it to scale
But my love for you is too big
Philosophy has no say here

If you beat me to the heavens
And I crash into time
Weave me constellations
So I know you’re still mine

I may leave first
Unwillingly, no doubt
Without trajectory goodbyes
I may float off into darkness
No light may scare you
But I will be there with open arms
Of sunlight
And the silent resonance
Rings of endless comfort
In a diamond

The last man on Earth

I wasn’t meant to feel good today.

That may have been a few days ago. Memories blur… I forget what you look like by now.

Maybe I felt I had value earlier today- serviceable, existing.

But it only takes one leak, one dip under the rising tide and a pissed off sea,
too rampant to care.

Constant trepidation and I can’t figure this out.
There are no open sores, just recoil
and wait for the next wave.

I sink and sink, deeper and deeper and this is the only outlet I have right now.

Or I’m just thinking out loud to myself.

I wasn’t meant to feel good today.
