Ashes Consume

“Ashes Consume” 
 Not sure how to look up,
At the barrels bottom.
Maybe there’s an answer,
I can’t fathom.

Tomorrow is void,
Hope is empty,
With no coming resurrection,
Of me.
Maybe I’ve run out,
Of imagination.
Perhaps I’ve fallen,
To degradation.
I don’t dream,
Ashes consume,
All before.

The Test

The Test

Seven years, does that make it a sketch,
A photo or a statue?
I am still soul searching,
After you.

We cling to what we believe,
In our belief sometimes,
There is simply no way,
To retrieve.

There is no balance,
Of the right and the wrong.
And just sometimes it leaves us,
With no place to belong.

I am so tired,
Ready to rest.
Have I not answered all the questions,
Of the test?

What Do You Choose?

"What Do You Choose?"

The dealer’s on his side.
You on yours.
Down to your last dollar.
What do you choose?

When I say last.
I mean very last.
The other dollars gambled away,
In a darkened past.

This last dollar,
It’s enough to get you by.
Then again.
There are a lot of memories stuck to it,
That still make you cry.

Do you throw it on the table?
Just let it go?
But it’s your very last dollar.
Somehow you just know.

The dealer’s on his side.
You on yours.
Down to your last dollar.
What do you choose?

Crushed I gasp for air.
Can’t scream or speak,
Hope can’t make it right or fair.
While I struggle and gasp,
I wonder dis you really care at all.
I mean I’ve fallen the fall,
Bled on the concrete and walls.
I’m all out of air.
My eyes, my lips, must be blue,
Hope can’t make it right or fair.
I’m all out of air.
My heart won’t fill, is it related?
My lungs won’t fill.
Worn out,

As Time Was Building Tears

“As Time Was Building Tears”

We all make mistakes,
All of us do.
Why end us like that?
I ask of you.
I can remember the day I met you,
With crystal clarity.
I guess you never really understood,
How much it frightened me.

To fall so hard,
So fast.
I only let you in because,
I really believed it would last.

I believed us to be happy,
Down through our years.
All the while my eyes were merely dams,
As time was building tears.

Miles of salt water rivers,
I never in my heart knew I’d cry.
I never knew my hopes were in a noose,
Just waiting to die.

We all make mistakes,
All of us do.
Why end us like that?
I ask of you.

I Don’t Have It In Me

“I Don’t Have It In Me”
I don’t have it in me,
I never did,
Inside an exaggeration of strength,
Is where I hid.

I don’t have it in me,
I’m broken beyond reason.
And there will not be a spring,
In any coming season.

I don’t have it in me,
There will be no light in the coming dawn,
There is too much absent,
There is too much gone.

I don’t have it in me,
There will be no release with the setting sun.
I can’t find any peace,
In what’s been done.

A Temporary Me


"A Temporary Me"

I want the moments to matter,
Later down the line.
Someone to count on,
Not just left behind.

I want the I love you's,
To never feel like lies.
I don't want to feel this alone,
When I need to cry.

I want the kisses to be special,
Never feeling second rate.
I want to believe the power,
When someone whispers of fate.

I want my hugs,
When I come through the door.
I don't want to feel,
Forgotten anymore.

I want free of the feeling,
Being swallowed by fear.
Giving another too much power,
If I let them near.
I know I'm nothing special, 
Nothing fantastic to see.
Will anyone ever want more,
Than a temporary me?

Learn To Walk Away


Learn To Walk Away
To walk away, to let go,
Learn a lesson.
Give up your heart,
Then run and hide
Within your mind.

Close all the doors,
Shut out the soul.
Rise in the morning,
Starts another day.

The years go by
Birth and then you die.
Live only for yourself,
Give in to no one,
And forget the past.

It is hard to remember,
When it felt like this.
Feelings run away,
Crashing into other feelings.

Loss replaces hope.
Hate replaces fear
Have little fear, and, do not hate.

Love comes all too often,
Always new and fresh.
Surely it will come again.

It should be strongly embraced,
Not, out of perspective.
Remember, caution keeps pain away,
For there will always be rain.

Words Fall in Place

"Words Fall in Place"

Lost in the words 
A swirl of emotion 
A boundless pain 
A misplaced devotion

The pen circles 
Shedding its ink 
A maze of memories 
So hard to think

The paper submits 
Holds letters fast 
Eyes glance back 
Better days past

Words fall in place 
Across the line 
Crying for something 
Never mine

An Event Horizon


“An Event Horizon”

Endless ball of fire,
Powering soft warming light.
Timeless a soft gentle glow,
On everything in sight.

An infinite reaction,
As the tiniest of things collide.
Allowing the darkest of dark,
To come alive.

A brilliant radiance,
An entire world shines anew.
Hope and light endless,
Such warmth in you.

Then a hiding dark,
But just barely a spot.
Although you fight,
With all you’ve got.

An enormous collapse.
As it all folds in,
A fading eternity,
With no way to win.

A cascade reaction,
An event horizon.
As time stops,
You’re realizing.

Fading light,
Once endless and timeless,

Endless and Timeless.
Words unused by the wise.

Since after light has faded,
Nothing survives.

Candy Corn M and M's ???

So I'm at the store and the cashier asks me "Would you like to try some candy corn M&M's?" 

"No, wait, what?" 
I didn't buy them, it seemed very strange to me...

While I Was In There

“While I Was In There”

I’m sitting here staring,
At a card board box.
Inside are a whole lot of things,
I forgot.

It frightens me even though,
All I need do is open the lid.
A lot I’d forgotten,
Even more that I hid.

From myself,
It was killing me to hang on.
To something, to someone.
When all of it was gone.

I work up the courage.
I peer inside.
Flip through the photos and smile.
As tears fill my eyes.

Pause and stare,
At more than just a few.
Goodness I smiled a lot,
When I was with you.

Finished I close the lid,
For a long while I simply set and stare.
I’d forgotten how happy I was,
While I was in there.

The Page Is Blank

“The Page Is Blank”

The page is blank,
But it’s already wet.
I’ve not even written,
Anything yet.

It’s hard to write,
Upon a dampened page.
I’ve learned that,
With wisdom and age.

The wet,
Smudges the ink.
Like swirling thoughts,
It’s hard to think.

I really don’t even know,
What I planned to write.
And the page,
Is really damp tonight.

So the page is blank,
But it’s already wet.
And I’ve not even written,
Anything yet.

and then came the Bee's

So I told dad how awesome it was that the bee's couldn't get the nectar, and he said you should put a small cup out for them...

So my SORRY compassionate ass listened.  Mind you the cup you see in those photos was FULL!  The bee's came from everywhere...  After a 30 to 45 min battle I ran them off, I do believe I got stung in the elbow...  but it was a MIGHTY BATTLE!

My little bird paradise...

I loves feeding the birds.  So I decided to get a humming bird feeder...

Second Chances

“Second Chances”
Second chances,
Who is worthy, who is not?
An equal return on that sale,
You just bought.

Where do we draw the line?
Where do we make a stand?
So confusing life’s questions.
No way to understand.
Faced with a choice,
Endless are the questions of yesterday.
But when do we find our peace?
When do we find our way?
Second chances,
Who is deserving, who is worthy?
I’ve exhausted my dreams,
Wondering this while I can’t see.

Now That It's Gone

"Now That It's Gone"

I've been so angry,
For so very long.
Angry and resentful,
At all that went wrong.

There were days I seethed,
With bitter hate.
Felt my soul being strangled,
By the hands of fate.

Were I able to summon the flames,
I would have burned  it all to the ground.
My fury was relentless,
I wanted no one around.

But it suddenly struck me.
I realized today.
I never took the time to miss you,
Since you've been away.

I've been so angry,
For so very long.
Hopefully I won't miss you.
Now that it's gone.

I'm Sorry

"I'm Sorry"

I'll not say I'm sorry,
For loving you.
I'm sorry,
That at the heart of it,
You were never true.

I'll not say I'm sorry,
For a single kiss.
I'm sorry,
My forever will be,
Something you miss.

I'll not say I'm sorry,
For offering my touch.
I'm sorry,
You lied so much.

I'll not say I'm sorry.
For what I believed.
I'm sorry,
Your respect was something,
I never received.

I'll not say I'm sorry,
For loving you.
I'm sorry,
That at the heart of it,
You were never true.

I'll not say I'm sorry.
The tears,
Taking shape inside my eyes.

I'm sorry,
You fell so far,
From grace,
In my eyes.

I'll not say I'm sorry.
Refusing to cry.

I'll wrap this up,
And just say goodbye.

My Advice

"My Advice"
Feeling broken,
Fractured inside.
I know,
Everyone lies.

Shouldn't there be an exception,
An exception to the rule?
Or are we left to wander aimless,
With our hearts to duel?

I'd like to say it can happen,
But deep down I know it won't.
If you're tempted to follow your heart,
My advice,
Is don't.

Crystal Cruelty

"Crystal Cruelty" 
~ ~ ~ 
The shot rang out 
Across my life 
Sliced through my soul 
Cut like a knife 
A sound so clear 
Crystal cruelty 
A blow so severe 
Harsh brutality 
Your emotionless face 
My unending tears 
Your heartless reaction 
Wasting so many years 
My heart exploded 
A blast without compare 
This person I loved 
Was never even there 
My soul set ablaze 
The arsonist held dear 
Left me burning 
Knowing my each 
And every fear

Only you can stop the zombie bee apocalypse

"Zombie bees" sound like the premise of a bad B-movie (couldn't resist) — but they're real. Biologists have observed honeybees in California and South Dakota displaying "zombie-like" behavior:

From Then Until Today

"From Then Until Today"

I wonder,
Do you smile?

When you think back,
Upon our yesterdays?

There's so much I wonder of,
In so many ways.

Do you think me childish,
In holding this grudge?
From which,
I refuse to budge.

Do you think me needlessly bitter,
In my opinion of you?

In my conclusion,
That you,
Were never true?

Did you make a mistake?
Were you somehow wrong?

Such a heartless coward.
You never were strong.

Stand up to your convictions.
Stand up to your word.

Unless they all were lies,
The words I heard.

So should you ever smile,
From some memory,
Of our yesterday.

Smile knowing it was lies.
From then until today.

You've no cause to smile.
Memories built on your lies.
If you question that,
Count the tears from my eyes.

And had I truly known,
This heart of you.

Well you just smile and know…
That I shouldn't have wasted,
A single day,
Of my life on you.

Chick-fil-a: Did Chick-fil-A Pretend to Be a Teenage Girl on Facebook?(via @Gizmodo)

Chick-fil-A, home of chicken-loving bigots, is in the middle of a PR nightmare. After Chick-fil-A's COO admitted to being anti-gay, the Jim Henson Company (bless their heart) pulled their toys from Chick-fil-A's kids meals.

It Was Never Mine

"It Was Never Mine"

I feel that I have done
What is right
But I find myself wondering

I have let you take your path
Let you have your view
Not stood in the way
Of you being you

I took the higher ground
When you chose him over me
And again I face
The mistake of me

But is it a mistake
Me being I
Or the time I chose
To cry

Am I wrong
In my slight
Am I false
In this fight

And who are you
To say the wrong or right
Who are you
Am I wrong
Or right

It isn't mine to say
What matters past today
It was never mine

Don't go to Stacks on 23rd St, in Independence where Clem's used to be.

Stacks is a recently opened  restaurant  is on 23rd street where Clem’s used to be.  I would ask you not to give them your business either.

Recently a restaurant opened in Independence, Mo. on 23rd St. where Clem's used to be the new place is called Stacks.  My sister went up there with a friend and the manager and she had a confrontation and he actually dropped the C bomb on her several times…  Here is my sisters post and several peoples responses.  This is not a Jack Stack BBQ.
Please don't eat a Stacks on 23rd St. I went there tonight and while I waited for about 10 minutes for my food the owner yelled at his employees telling them what pieces of crap they are and they couldn't do their jobs. So when he gave me my food I told him "You are really a PRICK yelling at your employees so the customers can hear you" he didn't hear me and I had to repeat it. Then he called me a F-ing B-tch C-nt and that I couldn't tell him how to treat his employees unless I wanted to pay them. He then told me he was going to come out and smack me. I said come on. He called me the FBC about 4 more times.
Marilyn Salazar The sweet part of this story is, my brother Danny Gunter went down there to confront him and told him he better not call his sister the C word. Love you Brother.

When I went up there he said "she doesn't need to be up here telling me to run my business" and I said "but you realize the C word is a very serious word that you don't just throw around", there was a lot more said then his wife (I assume) saw my camera and said "he's recording all of this, were done for the evening." and she closed the window so we couldn't talk anymore. (But my dumb ass didn't record shit cuz I didn't actually start recording... DAMN IT!)

A Fracture In Reality

"A Fracture In Reality"
A fracture in reality,
Light poured through.
Suddenly I could see,
I didn't know what to do.
I expected it to look different,
Not so strange a place.
Even though I looked upon,
A once familiar face.
Strange surroundings,
Unusual terrain.
I wondered if my wonderings,
Were all in vain.
Confused by hope,
Frightened of dreams.
A fragile world unraveled,
At the seams.

Jim Henson Company And Chick-Fil-A: 'Muppets' Makers Sever Ties With Anti-Gay Fast Food Chain

I was fortunate enough to enjoy these wonderful creations in my youth and now as a middle-aged man I can now also think of them as heroes.

Last Friday, the company behind beloved shows such as "Fraggle Rock," "Labyrinth," and "The Muppets," severed ties with Chick-Fil-A due to the fast food chain's CEO's opposition to same sex marriage.

Wolf Star

“Wolf Star”
Brought together,
By stellar drift.
An unnamed constellation,
Gravity yields its gifts.
A Wolf Star drifting distance,
Both to and from the stars.
A nebulous drift,
Follows from afar.
Were they once so close?
As gravity will push and pull.
Was it really close?
In the dark we often play the fool.
Both of time,
Times past and times present.
Laced with timeless memories,
We adore, fear and regret.
Is it a pending collision?
In the present or the past?
The dark distance,
Seems so vast.
Should the Wolf Star slow?
Would the nebula slow or advance?
Stars and nebula’s they move and drift.
Sometimes gravity allows the chance.
The Wolf Star moves along.
The nebula towed by gravity.
When the nebula fills the Wolf Star,
Only then will we see.

In this dark and vacant world
I let myself believe in you
I have found in hindsight
That is something we should not do
I let you give me hope
When there was nothing there at all
I let you watch satisfied
As I fall
As I fall
And continue to do
And all because
I believed in you
The lesson is learned
It will not happen again
And to remind myself
I need only think back

Dan Cathy, Chick-Fil-A President, On Anti-Gay Stance: 'Guilty As Charged'

I would ask (even though I really enjoy their food) my friends and family not to eat @ Chic-Fil-A, and then ask your friends and family not to eat there. I mean, I won't throw rocks at you or anything if you eat there, but I will think 'you dirty'.
The article I'm referring to:
Though Chick-fil-A has come under considerable fire for its documented support of anti-gay Christian organizations, officials for the fast food chain have remained mostly tight-lipped about the controversy -- until now.
In a new interview with the Baptist Press, Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy -- the son of company founder S. Truett Cathy -- addresses what the publication calls his franchise's "support of the traditional family."
Cathy's somewhat glib response: "Well, guilty as charged."
