Condos On Oahu

It's sad to see/

Condos on Oahu I can afford now and think/

Of how it'd be/

If you were still around with me/

We'd happily/

Start that family tree/

To be rooted magically/

In something other than tragedy/

Our house is sce-/

-nic, surrounded each/

Direction by the vast and deep/

Massive sea/

On your hand the ring/

Finger covered by a gold band with peaked/

Diamonds that wrap and gleam/

Attached to a beauty, my masterpiece/

With practiced ease/

I scoop you up/

In my arms and move with the/

Quickness of a fool in love/

Because the mood has struck/

And the truth is a/

Minute spent away from you could ruin the/

Rest of my life so I boost the dust/

In the house and sprint to you and lunge/

In before the delusion crumb-/

-les and I'm alone again, a recluse that brushed/

Against the life he wanted, then was entombed and thrust/

Back out into the world doomed to trust/

No one again, but from then on his relationships are a ruse, a crutch/

That leave him feeling used, disgust-/

-ed by the lack of human co-/

-nnection, and his life now proves as much/

I was used to us/

Institutiona-/

-lized by a beauty's touch/

Across The Seas

 I like watching you sleep/ She said, as I jostled and kneed/ My way on the mattress, stopping to think/ If you watch me, when do you actually fall into deep/ Rest yourself, it must be awful to be/ Kept up by my snoring, talking to me/ Not realizing that I've gone off the brink/ Of wakefulness and darkness until I'm startled and swing/ My arms up and cause you to spring/ Onto my chest laughing, harder than we've/ Ever done before, but you settle in and softly you sing/ I don't mind, because I love to listen to your heart as it beats/ The tears begin to pool and I cough and release/ Them in the present, because what once caused me to think/ I'd found Heaven on Earth is now a harsh memory/ But I bear it still, because though it carves and it cleaves/ And I lay there trembling, starting to bleed/ I know then I was alive for that part of the scene/ My recollection is sharp as the green/ Blades of grass in the lawn of our dreams/ In front of the house where we'd deco

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
