Trojan Kisses





Trojan Kisses




I'm on the brink/

Of walking free/

On the marching breeze/

That tomorrow brings/

Of all the things/

That could fill this hollow need/

Of mine, I'm falling deep/

Into the Autumn leaves/

With a shot of wink-/

-ing whiskey I nod and beat/

My hands against this awful dream/

Like a dog in heat/

Hypocrisy/

Follows me/

Everywhere, it stalks and sings/

To let it out as my heart, it bleeds/

For what was lost to me/

When I crossed the seas/

Monogamy/

A sparkling ring/

Uncommonly/

Strong reprieves/

From a world that drops the beam/

On frolicking/

Watching eag-/

-er as her belly rounds/

Itd be swelling out/

As the very ground/

That birthed our roots begins to tremble, growl/

And then allow/

Another seed to be spreading out/

As its vines assemble mount-/

  -ains from pebbles, a family stretches out/

From the death and drought/

Of our own, we resemble val-/

-iant warriors bending back-/

  -wards to set the mouth/

Of the world open in awe at our splendid hour/

But this is just the wreckage found/

In my disassembled mound/

Of emotions that then aroused/

My spirit but now stress it out/

So I pick up a pen and let it out/

Only to then be drowned/

In tears in the devil's shroud/

But unless I'm dour/

Then just keep me dead and crowned/

With metal wound/

Through the endless vall-/

  -ey of my demented scowl/

Because our ghostly children/

Know me whimpering/

In the night, a lonely victim/

Of hoping, wishing/

That youd hold me within/

But instead we slowly drifted/

Apart like our ropes were split in/

Two, and though we gripped each/

Other with ferocious misty/

Eyes, our own descriptions/

Of perfection closed our vision/

And exposed the distance/

Between us, and as I watch you grow, you're slipping/

Away from me, my only mission/

In life I've failed, I'm groaning crippled/

Alone and inches/

Away from being mostly living/

My bones and fickle/

Moon are notions tickling/

Me from the inside, and I'm clothed in ribbons/

Made from the cold I shivered/

In, as the oceans, rivers/

And home we built in/

Each other has exploded, dipped in/

To its now muddy foundation, I disrobe and, blissful/

Atone for sins that/

Broke us, hidden/

In ways that you had to feel, my babygirl I'm sending you trojan kisses/

Because although I'm sitting/

Here saying I want you happy even if I'm not the rose you're sniffing/

I really want you back, our life unfolding in the/

House we built, devoted, building/

Like always said with both our children/

4 Reasons Why I'll Be A Vagabond In 2 Years

4 Reasons Why I'll Be A Vagabond In 2 Years As my parole date looms and I prepare to muster out of the service that's cradled me the entirety of my adult life, I face the future with an uneasy trepidation coupled with my characteristic combative nature. I've heard every excuse, tempting me with bonuses and transparent promises regarding where I could live next, to tales of woe and agonizing regret, detailing the life of a miscreant that fleed from the Navy, expecting to flourish in the free world, no longer bound by the constraints of military life. Eager and cherry, they're invariably met with a crippling reality, sprinting head first into a shallow pool of filthy water barely concealing jagged, dangerous rocks and craters. I'll take my chances as I retake the reins of my life, though, even this far out, I know that my path will hardly be traditional, and will probably offend some traditionally and civically min

Outrunning The Reaper

Outrunning The Reaper The concept of aging intimidates me.  I wont say it scares me, because I feel that I've done the very best I can at retarding, delaying, and combatting it.  My training, which in the past prioritized hypertrophy and strength, misapplied in a hilariously misinformed fashion, has altered severely.  When I first got to Hawaii in 2017, I experimented with the idea of adopting EMOM (Every Minute On the Minute) training, a methodology I'd learned from studying Crossfit.  At that point I was doing 5 sets of Freestanding Handstand Pushups a day, with each set's repetitions decreasing incrimentally, following the Recon Ron Pullup Program.  It's available for free online, and a simple Google Image search will allow one to locate the entire workout.  I would sometimes do it twice a day, and before I stopped it, I was doing around 77 Handstand Pushups a session.  Back then I fancied myself a badass for completing such a "large" amount of volume in 1

Candlelight

Candlelight I've often been asked why I haven't written a novel yet, or even a short story on its own, let alone a collection of them.  While I've written enough poetry to fill several reams of factory fresh printer paper, and my prose on this very site could be collected, condensed, and categorized into an efficient little e-book, I simply cant find the motivation to write something that lengthy.  Stephen King once said in an interview that the secret to his prolific literary output was to, simply, write.  He sits at his desk every morning, puts his hands on his keyboard, and let's his fingers dance and twirl until 2000 words are peering back at him from the soft glow of his monitor.  I certainly admire such ardent consistency, and do actually apply it in my private writing, namely my journaling. But when books to be sold for mass consumption and profit are called into question, I suffer the inevitable bout of writer's block that eventually plagues us all so stubbo
