A Letter About My Tattoos

To those who are concerned,

It's A Good Day for Reality Check

Last night, I decided to go away for awhile. To focus on the life I have in front of me, not the one I lived so frequently through Social Media. I could have just disappeared, but instead I decided to write a little simething as a precursor to all the writing that's bound to come this summer. I concluded with a song by Ron Pope, one I had discovered a few hours after making my decision. 

The final goodbye was as such:

Cheers with My Best Friend

Here's to the music
ringing in our ears and to 
all the memories
that will last us through the years. 
Here's to infinite friendship.

You Were My Safety Net

I think of that night..
So What, if I wanted to
hold your hand with mine?
To lace my fingers with yours?
I still had to let you go.

Jailer, the Prisoner

She longed for freedom
but became comfortable with
silent suffering.

Moving Forward

All of a sudden
everything changed on a dime. 
Moments, lost in time.

Fire on Life

As I fall asleep,
its aroma takes me back,
looking for answers.

Swirling

The helicopters
sound like rain drops crashing down
to the cold, hard ground.

Guard

At night she inspects,
walking around all the walls
that should never fall.
She looks deep within her mind
and patches up the rubble.

Here's to the Lonesome

She's a lonely gal,
and you're a lonely fella. 
An introduction
is all you two need to start
being lonely togetha.

42

Part of me knows that
I deserve something better. 
Does "better" exist?

Come Again?

So she said, "super-
califragilisticex-
pialidocious"

Where's the Upper Hand

They always say, "Don't 
bring a knife to a gun fight". 
But they're not loaded.  

To the End of the Earth

It's impossible
to not be disappointed 
by my own habits. 
I know what I'd do for you...
Won't you do the same for me?
