Shadow Men

Shadow men in the shadow lands
Fleeing from the gallows friend
Knowledge accrued, divisible by two
Torn apart by an invisible truth
Hopeless of having a home found here
Expanding into infinity, We fear
Comprehension of a void, Where
Tangible material, these rational things
Will be lost to the law on which atrophy hangs
Faith is placed in the ethereal and strange
Imaginary beings, silent gods, fictional kings
These thoughts held dear, feelings felt clear
All that was, all that ...

Far enough.
Fear. No nearer,
No nearer, no nearer.
Still small steps taken,
Pushed from behind.
Three thousand, maybe more,

I ...

The corners of your mouth creep up slowly.
Recognize a predators smile…
So demented. So demented and beautiful.

That stare you give me speaks volumes.
In a language no one could understand.
You seem to know how this plays out.
Ready to strike the lethal blow…
So demented. So demented and beautiful.

I turn to ash as a manner of speaking.
I fall to the ground and my heart stops beating.
I dim to nothing like a memory without meaning.
I ...

Hotel Review

I stopped there on a trip to see my family. It is by far the worst place I have ever stayed. I had planned on staying for 3 nights but left after the first one. You would not believe how utterly repulsing this owner was!

When I arrived this old man was watching, which I’m pretty sure was Fox News. They were doing a piece on that one F’d up church. You know those guys who protest funerals of soldiers and ...
