A Heartfelt Welcome

To those of you who call me friend, those of you that call me love, those of you who call me brother, those of you that call me son, those of you who call me hero, & those of you who don't know me at all: I welcome you to the mind of a man who's destined to save the world...

Horror Story

Darkness has spread
Throughout the streets
The eerie creek
Of screen doors
& stormshutters swaying
Back & forth in the wind
Sends shudders & shivers
In spines

But this isn't your average
Horror Story

The clouds move
And suddenly
The reflection of the moon
Turns pavement
Into sun dunes
lingers around the corner
Waiting for instructions
On what further
To do

But this is not your average
Horror Story

Don't worry
It still has your favorite characters

The innocent woman
Who's just trying to
Find her way
Living her life
night & day
night & day

Until she randomly meets


Forget "Man of her Dreams"
Was this type of dude
Too good be true
Was an understatement

So when the leading lady
Gets scared
Of his uniqueness
What does that make him?

I am the villain to her horror story

Me saying "I'm sorry"
When I'm wrong
Terrifies her

Cooking her surprise dinners
When she comes home
Horrifies her

Me never denying her
Never disregarding my loyalty to her
Shocks her

My refusal to ridicule her
My yearn to never yell at her
My faith in her
My forgiveness of mistakes of hers
My ease of letting my pockets break for her
Has taken the essence
The life
From her

So she runs

She thinks that she's broken free
Of me
But the ghost of my prescence
Is presented in her dreams
Her resentment of her decision stalks her

My uniqueness haunts her

The fact that no man can live up to what I can give
Damn near brings her to the brink
Of death
She wakes with deep breaths

Awoken by nightmares of a perfect family
A white picket fence
A House on a hill
Things that make sense
But because she's afraid
It's just

She's tired of running
Just as much as I'm tired
Of chasing
So being that as I said before
that this is not ya average horror story
I'm gonna be the 1 villain to quit
And walk into my own glory

If you insist
On why I added this
simple, yet complex twist
It's because this
Is not at all
a horror story

Its my life

A heartbreak's epitome

The summary
Of events
That have effected
Every bit of me


This is nothing more
Than my average

Love story
