…and the darkness reigned supreme
from the moment man dared to dream
Hell isn’t something you reach
when blessed sleep comes to being
Hell is every single day
on this rotten ball of clay

…and the darkness sang of his praise
in sarcastically worded phrase
Go ahead and struggle for the light
bitch and whine about your plight
the more you squirm the deeper the worm

…and the darkness made them all afraid
in chaos they scrambled for the sky
broke all their hearts when they find
they’re not all birds just humans who die
watch the angels fly away into his embrace

…and the darkness reigned forever in his mind
cause he believed in a great man in the sky
because there’s nothing left to acheive
when no longer breath can you breathe
finally now you are complete

…and the darkness brought trepidation
doubt and fear embedded in those held dear
the rest of their lives wondering why
a great big man in the sky can decide
now it’s time to join his side

…and the darkness of the passing life
forgiven with a single word heard from
the final breath from his end of days
whispering of his praise he goes onward
to wait for all of us to come home

…and the stars they shine out from the
pitch black of night when you see
your loved ones come running
we missed you so don’t look back
don’t see them cry don’t see them crack

…and the clouds obscure the sight of hurt
but light years can’t separate the songs
they sing in the dark by themselves the cries
ring from all sides of this infinite verse of rhyme
and they know even when you never spoke the words

Nothing is left for me to say
all the pain laid bare
with more than words can dare

I’ll honor you for the rest of these days
let me be all you dreamed for me

I’ll fall down
I’ll fall short
I’ll get back up
I’ll brush off the dirt

and I’ll stand again
the way you taught me to

Let me shine
let me define
Let me rise
let this be all

Nothing is left for me to say
all the pain laid bare
with more than words can dare

Well, I’ve worn this cochlear now for almost 3 years.

If I can be perfectly blunt, and this is not a sales pitch but… it’s changed my life something legit.

I am capable of carrying on conversations with strangers.

Sure, to most people, that’s like “so what?”

To me, that’s like “holy farking she-at!”

I’m in the process of buying a new house. In fact, I bought it today. It has required that I interface with a variety of people whom I’ve never met before, or who I haven’t met in a long time.

The experience has been delightful. I met the previous owners of the house I bought, and it was a pleasant experience, not a dreaded experience. I met the guy who put my mortgage together, and we had a nice talk outside the closing. Wonderfully nice guy who’s sister works with deaf and blind folks. I met with the lady who’s buying my condo, and her agent.

The important part is that none of this has been intimidating. That’s the part I think most “normals” don’t get: that engaging in conversations, especially VERY. IMPORTANT. CONVERSATIONS. like buying a new house.. they’re not overtly intimidating anymore.

It’s flipping wonderful.

I always dream my life would be
like something on the front
of a magazine
admired by people in the grocery line
waiting to get on with their own lives

But a supernova of comprehension
spoke in dulcet tones one evening
broke the hold of all the tomes
the breath they breathed upon my life
fades away from being as brilliance
took hold of all thats left of my mind

so shallow were my infant dreams
so pitiful the waves I seek
acknowledging how miniscule
how tiny how meaningless
my life has always been
will always be

as long as I refuse to see
everything there is to see
stop being trapped on moments beings
start being enrapt of beyond the dreams
the skies the stars they are nothing
but grains of dust on grains of sand
on swatchs of beach bordering
the great wide sea of that’s being

I always dreamed my life would be
like something on the front
of a magazines
admired by people in the grocery line
waiting to get on with their own lives

It’s supposed to scare me to comprehend
how meaningless it all has been
it’s supposed to drive me screaming insane
but instead it makes me smile today
to know that I am nothing special

Everything I know and see
Every dream I’ve ever dreamed
I am the master of all these things
but still I stand and sway to the beat
I am nothing at all

I always dreamed my life would be
spent with you on the magazines
admired by the jealoes wife
with screaming brats in the grocery line
she’d wish to God she had our lives

All the notes the beats the bass slithering
the snare it keeps the cymbal screams
the song it means nothing at all
cause no matter how they compose this song
another one will come along

The matter hits anti-matter and reality impodes
the density pulls on everything
but however meaningless I seem
However meaningless my dreams
my wants and desires that mean nothing
I resist the pull the song to go

I always will hold this dream
where everyone wishes they could be me
cause I’ll be the one standing aside
the center of all there is
I hold my dreams forever and ever
left reality fade from being
I’ll stand alone infinity
a single candle ever burning

Words are just motions of the mind
vibrations and undulations applied
spilling forth in frothing bubbles
words are just motions of the mind

nothing neat and nothing sweet
nothing spoken without meaning
nothing dared and nothing torn
left alone an imperfect thorn

speak your mind or lay down to die
do what makes you happy or at least try
look her in the eye and say the words
they’ll be heard and what comes next

is what’s meant to be cause only now
the right moment seeks to align
with your heart and mind to make
the only rhyme you’ll ever rhyme

words are more than motions of the mind
vibrations and undulations unapplied
spilling forth in frothing bubbles
words are the emotions of the mind

given shape form and factor finally
the audience can see the machinations
the gears the cogs firmly aligned
well oiled and working in time

a well spoken mind
will find the words
that mean so much
that never ever will die

Burning down all the houses left behind
fill them up with nothing inside
stare upon the spaces they make
the toll of sadness begins so bleak

control of your days
and shadows cast from your gaze
all who dare meet your frightened stare
and respond without a basis to share

left behind to fight on
left behind to find out why
left behind to keep going
left behind to find out why

Demonic phrases bubble forth
the tide held back
by the walls built inside
pray the deluge doesn’t burst

control of nothingness
and shadows cast from your gaze
all who dare meet your frightened stare
and respond with nary a basis to share

Still to roam the desert chrome
pitted tarnished and so road worn
Still to roam the darkened shores
lapping at the the cliffs of nowhere

I feel dangerous to myself
I feel deadly to the rest
i feel like the words I speak
are a spell cast by wizards breath

I feel self control is just a dream
I feel like the die was cast for me
no one asked me if I was ready
just thrown to the curb and left to stray

Burning down all the houses left behind
fill them up with nothing inside
stare upon the spaces they make
the toll of sadness begins so bleak

WHO WHAT WHERE WHY HOW
are questions of merit
under the guise of a God
who doesn’t care

In darkness done despair
self pity and you quite a pair
Let the light play and dance
for someone else

Let the sweet sounds
of a sunny day wash away
all of the pain
at least for one fine day

then the night
and loneliness come to stay
cuddle up and stab you
right in the face

all the blood coursing
in your veins
belongs to the sadness today
let darkness come so they spake

your head it shakes
your words they say
it’s time to just s top foghting
and lay yourself aside

No no no no NO
I say NO No NO NO
this is WHEN IT CHANGES
this is when I stand up to stay

the darkness comes so easily
the light to cast is struggling
but the brightness fast is always
there inside if but to wait

for another fine sunny day
and one after another following
sure the clouds will come on by
cast a shadow unto I

but always will this sun shine
brighter still than every whine
every fear and every time
I feel like the shadow’s mine

Burning down all the houses left behind
fill them up with nothing inside
stare upon the spaces they make
the toll of sadness began so bleak

It doesn’t have to be
it’s always up to me
Come dare with me
come share with me

the light and joy the future brings

Sometimes I walk in the woods
wander off the path as the clouds descend
and the fog portends of broken whims

The chords of life play a deepening bass
everything shakes and life seems to be
a waste of time and space so effortlessly

when I break down and forget my bounds
I yap and growl and snap and prowl
and say I’m broken down

they tell me it’s just human
sometimes we all fall
it’s how you pull yourself

up off the ground

Sometimes I walk in the woods
the deer feed as I walk on by
in the warming summer breeze

sometimes they run when I’m near
sometimes they stay and watch me go
and always do I smile

The song that plays in my head
called everyday will change
once I accept the truth

when I break down and forget my bounds
I stop and say I’m better today
peel me up and watch me bound

up off the ground

my brain is pasted on a page,
like mucilege and ocnstruction paper
a mildly askew kindergarten project
resulting from accidental ingestion
of the nasty mushrooms left behind
by the town wino who passed out
and died on the park bench in a
blaze of red and blue lights
at 5am in the morning,
robbing mom and dad of sleep
bequeathing the angry flustered
zombie walk of a day without enough sleep.

Blessed are the donuts heaved over
the shattered remains of Humpty’s corpse
trod into a fine dust in the desire
to consume one more cup of
bitter bean swill upon the morn
whence suddenly you come to
realize you’ve been babbling on
meaninglessly and it’s more
constructive and meaningful
than anything you can say
while traipsing about in
your ever daily lucidity.

Beckoned the soft confines spake
but my body denied the come hither
batting of frilly edges made
from empty pledges and
the fleeting hope my dreams
will be filled with something
much more satisfying than
the monotony of yet
another day under the boot heel
of my own ethics and desire
to succeed beyond my means
without acceptance of my station
nor denial of my patience.

Finally the robot legion of doom
pulls down the lids of my lens
and begs my mind to close within
peer deep inside the unconscious mind
and speak only of and to myself
all the characters are me
even the ones I hate to see
especially the ones I love to be
the way I keep ever flying
and saving the world in my dreams
from the death above i keep bringing.

rinse and repeat
rinse and repeat
how many times
shall I wash thee?

Bear your eyes upon
something you don’t see
every day your wake and breathe
a man with no legs is walking
down the street
lead by a man with no eyes
to hear a man with no ears
sing this song

A man with no hands
plays a mean guitar
a man with no ears
sings rights along

Bare your soul upon
don’t say the word
don’t jinx the hurt
glassy eyed and pacified
without a mind
still cleverly assigned

He runs around and waves at the sky
the clouds stop passing by
recognize she said it’s time
say the word caught in your throat
unleash the damnation of worth

Questions and dares
blank broken stares
hiding underneath the stairs
shivering in a million fears
sweetened by only the hope

Embrace the demon electric
fear not the complexity
taste the difference in the world
when no longer do you fear
another day another way
it’s all the same always the same

A different color a different shade
it’s still a blue sky today

It’s still a man running down the street
it’s still a man playing guitar
it’s still a man rocking the drums
it’s still a man singing this song

No one’s stringing you along
just another life another day
just another man anyways
for your soul to bear upon
so normal so everyday
emblazoned emblem upon his chest

The earth still spins
around the Sun it went
despite the end
that happened

all that mattered came
to a surprising conclusion
and still the children
continue to ride

Life is without amusment
Life is without a doubt
Just another reason
for mucking all about

Why another day does
the sun come out to play
when the dark descended
eternally to stay

all that made me shine
has gone away to leave
this mishapen lump of coal
writing about how sad things go

Life is a runaway train
Life is not stopping
just another disaster
wrecking havoc and war

Storm clouds came tumbled
blown everything amok
and your sweet little dreams
mean nothing at all

all that made life interesting
strewn about the land
rake the leaves of your life
into a pile and a can of gas

Life is burning through
Life is a pile of ashes blown
across the fields
and into the lakes

My sadness so deep
no light can touch me
I stare at the sun
hoping to feel the heat

all that mattered changed
normal has no meaning
struggle is the only way
squirm to the surface one day

Life is the flowers that bloom
Life is what you renew
even on your knees
you stand taller than you do

Life is not begging
life waits for no man
just brush it off
and stand
