Original Intent - August 20, 2017


The author read
The words she wrote
And swore each word
Together spoke

A different message
Than initially penned
In a tone reminiscent
Of a familiar friend.

Megalomaniacs - April 15, 2016


He followed her footsteps in the sand.
Her imprints vanished beneath his feet.
The tide rolled up behind them both
To cover all tracks upon its swift retreat.

The moon laughed quietly to itself,
"That'll show them; I rule this beach!
Witness crashing waves belt a lion's roar
And flatten all castles within their reach."

With enough arrogance to rival the moon's,
A gradeschooler rampages through the water.
"The waves crumble before my righteous fist!"
His father mutters, "And you wanted a daughter?"

But the mother's not impressed
By such a violent display.
"Will it be classmates tomorrow
If it's the waves today?"

Davy Jones - March 25, 2015


Ocean waves undulate
Underneath my skin
And between my bones.

Often times,
An awful tide
Unlocks the locker
Of Davy Jones.

Deep in depth
Is kept my debt
I owe to Davy
For his loans.

Once he rises,
Compromises
Are made to save
My sinful soul.

My telescope
Tells me of hope;
Tonight's the night
To seek the scroll

To bring to light
My lawful right
To tax the man
Who dwells below.
