I’ve lived by the sword
And died by the word
Saw the fall of all I knew
And the rise of all I forgot
In the cold of the silent night
Not even the winds will howl for me
As the scars of the love once shared
Fell aside to the opening wound laid bare
And now old melodies of melancholy echo on
Long into the morning before there is light


10 years of challenge

10 years
I’ve known happiness
I’ve known sadness
The feeling of family
The feeling of loss
I’ve seen many come and go
Seen a few stay
I’ve had reasons to end it
Reasons to continue on
I’ve grown, evolved
Mutated and devolved
And through it all
I still have no clue what I’m doing


It’s a brand new night
And the moon is high
Its light shines upon all I see
The cure for my disease
I threw away
Each and every day
I forgot a little more
Like the slamming of a door
I surfer alone because
No one knows the sins I bare
And no one wold care
Nor would they stay
If they saw the light of day
