No Complaints

I have no complaints
I could come up with some
But then I’d have more tasks
And I already have enough tasks
So I have no complaints

Lost Connection

Sometimes when I
Make eye contact
With a beautiful stranger
She looks back at me
With absolute disgust
And I wonder
What someone else did
To make her think
I’m that big
Of a piece of shit

Or maybe
They just don’t like my face
Whatever it is
There’s no more beauty
It just shrivels up and dies
And there’s no more woman
Just a demon
And there’s no more love
Or admiration
Just bitterness
And resentment

Was it her fault
Or mine
Or someone else’s
Maybe it was God

There’s no happy end
To this story
It just keeps repeating
So I go back to my coffee

Varied Work History

Maybe I have a varied work history
Because I've done a few things
But maybe you have a boring life
Because you've only done one
And you don't even like it

Possibility & The Unknown

Possibility begins at the unknown
Possibility ends at fear
The point where fear ends
And possibility begins
Is the point
Where you face the unknown

Break The Silence

The silence between us
An invisible mountain
Getting bigger
The longer it endures
Pushing us farther
And farther apart
Hearts break
Truth hurts
Silence kills

*Honored to have my dear friend and fellow poet Mr. Chris Ernest Nelson contribute to this poem.  His poetry is loaded with gems.  You can find more of his work on his blog at

RAP POST: Down For Whatever

It hurts to be real
But it's worth it
So I cook up a rhyme
And just serve it
It's perfect

When a plan comes together
You know that you made it
You rode out the weather
But still can't stop
'Cause nothing's forever
And everyone's looking
For the buried treasure
That's why I go hard
And I know 'cause I measure
Don't do it for money
I do it for pleasure
Ts'why I keep going
I'm down for whatever

Ten bucks till my check comes
But fuck it, I'm clever
They won't get me now
Not today and not ever
I'll win if I try
'Cause I don't give up, never
