Broken Man

Wisdom is taken, but more often forsaken....

Tell me where those tears come from, ur pleasure or pain? No doubt im the sour fukin latte in ur mouth but dammit if i dont taste good goin down. Truth, maybe a few stones... but truth nonetheless, I walk ur tightrope and no doubt the freedom it buys u is no less my prison but fuck me if I dont love u for it...
I got ur number, know ur face I have my aces and wildcards in their place. Dont underestimate a man who can love who can hate and who surely can disassemble you. i mean, make u lose ur way.

Give me a chance to come back down to Earth for a minute......

do you suppose that a broken heart is only a frame of mind? I think its got its possibilities... hang me for a while, see if i dont blend in with the scope of ur lovely vision just dont put me on that fuckin shelf k? God knows I don't sit well for too long dwelling on the past, even tho the past has a pain and morbid silence that loves to hate me..... Take counsel of your flight, not of your love

I walk knowing my days are different, and maybe for a minute, in this driven snow I can feel the cold, I can feel the burn...... Heaven gates... hells flames.... not sure if I'm standing behind or beyond... what i do know is that sure, I miss the man I used to be, he trusted people, he trusted her... it had its benefits for survival at one time before it eventually blew up in my fuckin chest...
but no doubt I wouldn't trade the fucker i am now, and neither would you..... To know me you must close one eye, to love me you must close both

I don't mind going from my soul to my heart to my carnal afflictions to reveal a little at a time... but trust me, your job is not to change me. Your job is to know I have room to grow. Of course, I am a reasonable man and nothing I do doesn't come without timing... timing turns me on fuckyes it doo.... But make no mistake about my oddity to observe more than you do, for this is my watch, friend... and when i make my move, I make my move as if God was going to show up, and gamble everything away, as if he never did, u see......... Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life

I will always be a marine. I will die my last death a marine, here or there... for there's just no other wayu see.... my knowledge has made my living and my wisdom has shown me my life, my last death.... And I know that is probably against what some believe to be the good shit.. But again.. I remind you, the Earth you've lived and laughed on, is my Earth too....of course that felt good darlin

No Beginning No End

Once upon a time in the land of the lost fuckers.....there lived a King that didn't deserve to be ..... he knew not where he came from (and no this couldnt be me)....the King was looking for a ladder.... he needed to make a climb, a climb that would take his wasted ways, and make something out of wasted days......

this king had a subject, of whom he'd make climb first, the subject said 'but master, it is not my ladder to climb.. u see i am only worth a nickle,and u are worth a dime'.... so the king took off his shoes, and said if i am not back down in 7 days, presume me dead... make no mention of this ladder, or my failure in whats ahead..... so he climbed, climbed... saw heaven... looked down and said.... 'take my riches, take my life, stand in my shoes and take care of my wife...... for i have climbed this high without my crown, and there's no greater failure than going back down'......

the subject said 'wait, im coming with u, i want to see what u see, there's nothing here where im blinded, here i'm only me'......

the king said, 'no.. go find ur own ladder, go find ur own heaven... for no ladder belongs to two men, no heaven is the same, no reward is kept... only the failure, the fall.. only the ground belongs to everybody'...........

life is like a ladder, no different in the risks u take with each step... as u assume to take life in ur hands, the steps u take will govern the risks u take along with em... as u climb, the ground will lay further away from your feet, the gravity on your shoulders will get heavier, until suddenly you realize than you are somewhere in between Heaven, Earth.... Cause, Effect.... Your past will remain at the bottom always... careful, don't look down or u will want to go back, and retrieve every moment that ever hit u when it was too late.....

Life is like a ladder.... in every way, you look around, there's many ways to make it to the top... but only one life to get u there... one mind, set it free, let it go ahead of u.... ur future will not be anywhere, u will only depend on the steps in front of u, to take somewhere u can call ur future... as u continue to climb, the ladder will sway, the air will swallow u instead, u will see the top..... baby steps...

Everybody's looking for the ladder....... everybody wants salvation of the soul, but nobody is willing to give it away... everyone wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to die..... The steps you take are no easy task, the further from the ground u get, the greater the risk of falling, so never take for granted the power of the humility.The reward is great for those who want to go, but the reward is only the reward, its the person who u become that will determine if the climb was worth it, and ur subjects will know....

The size of the whole wide fuckin world will decrease.... the hunger to see what's at the top will consume you half-way up.....and ur time spent alone my friend, will cease....... for everybody's looking for the answers....how the story started and how it will end......

rest easy, i have no answers on me, no beginning, no end.... instead i ask u.... what's the use of half a story, half of a dream.You have to climb all the steps in between.....

Queen of Hearts

Queen of Hearts I raise your bet. I have nothing left to gamble, only my humanity as you can see. Give me some time to stare up my ceiling as my thoughts lost in your translation force this cigarette to burn alone.. slowly and without a breath only the sound of the background music in my soul.......

Sure I'll unlace that for you... don't mind my hunger just keep your cards where I can see em. I am only a man, a horrible pretender, but will no doubt keep my poker face as you shred me and canvas everything that makes me, well, me... and explore the man I used to be.
Say nothing of the man I should become as I am still lost in this moment.

Once a number, now a face... I ask you whos mask are you looking to unveil at this table in life, mine or yours...... Regret not my straight-forwardness as I have done more changing in my quest for finding myself as I have in ever refusing to see myself for what I really am. Goes to show that the House holds more to win than what you are willing to bet in your hand sometimes.

I'm freeing myself for you to see... the imperfection, the details.. the fine print one letter at a time.. may your heart never grow fond of me, as I am a man willing to bet only for what he is willing to lose. I've seen his blood shed another's blood. I've witnessed his insincts remain silent in the corners of the ultimate entrapment of lost war, lost love and lost discipline... I proclaim, not all of my lessons have been lost in the deck,Queen of Hearts. Anymore I only strive to recognize the beauty of my wild cards.

I have killed and have been killed a thousand times, only to find one more Ace up my sleeve... as I was praying only for my loss to go fast as fast I can run in one mile I prayed... these have been my blessings, one hand at a time... and only one time every time so I go not from my convictions mad these days...

Here I stare up at the ceiling in the moment of you. In the moment of gamble as I take you there with me .... faces of strangers in a familiar place I emplore you to have a seat and straddle as slowly as your love can bear to stand it. For I am only a man and don't mind having my cake.. having my death...... having your hand and having all to take with me as I give you all I have. See my humanity and see I am not only your soldier, I am your gambler.
