Writing is my way of dealing with the ups and downs of this thing we call life and trying to make sense of the crazy things, good and bad, that go on in the world. Sometimes I also do it just for fun. In addition to writing, I also like to ride my bike, read, play around on guitar, spend time with my family, and occasionally gather with a small group of friends to play games for the evening. I work in Information Technology, and even though it is my livelihood, I try to not let technology run my life, savoring the more simple things. My guilty pleasures include enjoying a good cup of coffee in the morning, eating spicy food, and occasionally indulging in a quality brandy or bourbon in the evening,

Blood On The Rose

Trip a wire in my brain
Short circuit to distant dreams
Destinations where I want to arive
Paths that I fear to tread
It keeps the dream alive
But is it all in my head?
Or the monster under the bed

You’re the monster under the bed

Yeah, I remember what I want to forget
Yeah, I want what I don’t deserve to get
No, I won’t ever regret the path I chose
But why does there need to be blood on the rose?

But is it all in my head?
Or is it the monster under the bed?
It’s right there under my nose
Tomorrow and forever there will always be
Blood on the rose

We Never Said Goodbye

I’ll keep it in my pocket for the rest of my life
You can’t see it in the daylight
But at night it cuts me like a knife

You did this to me
You helped make me who I am
Yes, you did this to me
Because you never asked me why
And we never said goodbye
No, we never said goodbye

The goal was a simple when darkness touched light
Cut through the fog with a dull knife
Take all the time to do it right

You did this to me
You helped make me who I am
Yes, you did this to me
Because you never asked me why
And we never said goodbye
No, we never said goodbye

Why did you never ask me why?
Because you already knew the answer

You did this to me
You helped make me who I am
Yes, you did this to me
Because you never asked me why
And we never said goodbye
No, we never said goodbye

Goodbye

Affinity

Energy traveling through the vast expanse
Knowing what lay hidden
What needs to stay hidden
Stringed along in theory
Loss of trust mentality
Desire becomes the fantasy
For losing all integrity
All for nothing if nothing more
Than the affinity.

There was no other way
Or none to be known of that day
Point of contact termination
No means for explanation
Rules laid out in damnation
Loss of salvation
Emotional degradation
Affinity negation
No more games to play
Nothing more to say

Color Me Unimpressed

I thought you were out of my league
I never expected to be stabbed in the back
I didn’t know how painful the twist of a cheating knife could be.

Viewed from the distance so many times
I swore that would never be me
I would never be so naive
But you stole my heart without my paying heed
And ripped out my soul
Ripped it out and laid it to waste
The betrayal and deceit left me cold
Wondering if I could ever open the gates again

I thought you were out of my league
Though memories may drift my heart will never go back
To the twist of a knife and.your night of ecstasy

Maybe I see it things as too black and white
Maybe I should have expected nothing less
I will forever keep a safe distance and do what is right
Wanting but not wanting
Color me unimpressed

My other Wordpress blog

There hasn’t been a lot going on here because this blog is more of my general writing place (mainly poetry, but occasionally some other stuff). I also have vinyl record music blog, “The Vinyl Jungle”, that has been capturing most of my writing time. I have been posting to it nearly every day for a little over a year now and only occasionally here. If you’re a music lover, I hope you’ll give my other WordPress blog a visit. Feel free to drop in a comment while you’re there to let me know what you think or suggest an album.

Questions 4 and 6

Were you ready to leave or did I throw us away?
If I’d asked you about it would I have believed you anyway?
Questions I ponder every day

Does that little diamond still sparkle in your eyes?
If I asked you today, would you tell the truth or feed me lies?
Questions I try to analyze.

Do you know what you meant to me?
Do you realize what you helped me see?
Is what you meant to me ever what I meant to you?
Did I throw away a heart that was true?

Did you know I gave up all of my soul and my heart?
Did you know it’s what I felt inside right from the very start?
Questions that tear my soul apart.

Riding My Bike to Fight Kids’ Cancer

The dilemma…

With heat indexes hitting over 100 degrees this afternoon, it didn’t look like my ride for my Children’s Cancer Research Fund was going to happen after work today, 12 miles from making my goal of 300 miles.

The solution…

Rise and shine at 5 am, on the bike at 5:15. One hour, and 16 miles later, I have now surpassed my goal, with 304 miles ridden so far in June, and you my friends, have generously given $718 to help fight childhood cancer, surpassing my fundraising goal.

Thank you so much to all my friends and family who have donated. You are helping a great cause.

But I’m not done yet. I have one more day and one more ride to do tomorrow morning (before it gets too hot again). If I can get my donations to surpass $800 before the end of today, I will make tomorrow morning’s ride my longest of the event, pushing me past 325 miles.

If you haven’t sponsored my rides yet, please take a few minutes to help kids fight this terrible disease.
