Another truth

the confession
changed the way
you look at me

but it had to be said

a truth

souls and promises
are only as good
as the people they inhabit

death and memory

Darkness is all around
can't hear a single sound
can you hear my screams?
nothing is what it seems...

fade away
into the nothing
fade away
until there is nothing

Coldness surrounds
no one to give ground
can you give me heat
where will I find something to eat?

Fade away
into oblivion
fade away
into the dust

there is nothing left

5 Year anniversary of Reality Bytes

Where does the time go?

Well, it goes on. This is my 5th year writing this blog and it has been a great joy to me. I know lately I haven't written much. It's life, you know? No matter what, I will return to this blog and share my insights, my observations, or my dreams.

Also, since the site does keep track, this is my 253rd post. Since most of my posts are poems or prose, I'm pretty proud of the amount of work I have produced since 5/4/05. And I know it's not about quantity, but I feel all the work is quality. Don't we all?

I hope you will return and enjoy what you read. I'll keep writing 'em if you keep reading 'em.



there is a change in the weather
that the forecasters missed
it's sneaking up behind us
and will hit us like the blitz

there is a change in our stature
that the doctor's couldn't see
a curve of imagination
inter cranial deformity

there is a change in our outlook
as the world becomes so small
no mountain is big enough
no skyscraper too tall

there is a change in my head
that I don't understand
I guess I'll play along
with the rest of the band

there is a change
and there
changes everywhere

yet it all stays the same
