Meanderings of a Fool

Poem by Cam Suspicious anxiety swells through the mind, A great storm rolling in on dark raging clouds. Swirling through the great Mountain tops, One must be weary, when opening the heart. A state of vulnerability, with all its insecurities. Though courageous, and bold, We walk towards a great unknown. Wishing that we are not alone, Hoping to have your hand to hold, Is the only acceptable way to weather a storm. The excitement of hearing her voice, or the dark swarming shade of losing ones choice. Makes a man feel, perhaps that’s why we enlist to fight for a never ending battle … Continue reading Meanderings of a Fool

The Rhyme of The Sands of Time

Poem by: Cam (the squid) Joyful scrutiny awaits thy sleeping head, Ol’ passerby of the sands of time. Once where you began, you will return in the end. A prophetic tale of the wise. Among the roads, a foot one in front of the other. Thy climb is longer when staggering, But beauty always rests ahead of the wanderer. If only thy will be sacrificed in an offering. To the muse of wanderlust, who often is laughing. With each step comes a great learning. Though, all great things must be arduous, It is worth it in the end, if thy … Continue reading The Rhyme of The Sands of Time

Snow Queen

Poem written by: Cam Tonight, I can see your breath going out into the darkness. The taste so sweet, the rhythm so soft, Your eyes resting shut, your words ring out towards the light. The silence is never enough. Sleeping beauty. still in her black hoodie. The bags under her dark eyes, a tired mother rises, No make up on, where does she pull the strength to carry on? “Hoods up, safety first” her only song. Perhaps that’s the only way she gets along. That haunting widows peak from my dreams, like a freshly picked rose with jagged thorns. Her soft … Continue reading Snow Queen

My Never Mind

Written by Cam (Squid One) Felonious, momentous, forgetfulness, blasted ravenous thought, Never mind the mind’s rot. Cut from the same sheet of blank white paper, I wonder could you only remember. That twisting nether, the repressing hierarchy, Dipped in the mud of creation and controversy. Your never mind, bold beautiful unrepentant spine. That which can’t ever be mine, but I don’t ever mind. Cats got my tongue, like the cigarette that poisons your lung. I wonder if I put the rope around my neck could it ever be hung? My never mind brings stone disciples to my ministry. callous and … Continue reading My Never Mind

My Demon Roots

Poem by: Cam, the squid Bombarding roots from a poisonous weed unleashed through the wood floor, twisting, entangling, and trembling around my ankles. They tighten, cut the circulation, thorns stab, bloody my feet. The roots dug deep, they stop, they keep. Wondering if I meant anything to you, nothing. Weep. Once again I’m staring back up the mountain, Steep. Continue reading My Demon Roots

Thank You

A poem by: Cam (the Squid) Thanks for one more time, one more lie, One more waste of a rhyme. Thanks for fucking with my mind. Your eyes light up the moon, like a bloodsucker waiting to feed. Its prey, a helpless boy awaiting death soon You, stabbing in the back while watching him bleed. You snicker like a predator, with your talons stained Licking your lips a killer you became. “Never to late change.” A lonely prayer from the martyr, The only boy who refused to believe in your horror. Your wings dark as a raven, Edgar Allan Poe … Continue reading Thank You

Canyon Kids

Written by: Cam, “the squid!” Ol’ Cumberbatch and wine, the art, but only that of the fine, Us children set against the canyon, Desperately needs a place to unwind. Loud music blaring, all the alcohol swirling, We drink until we are nothing, disappearing. Unnerved and unheard, we are the Canyon Kids that got lost from the herd. Unknown and insecure, never without the desire to be something more, Lost among the rolling hills, and blazing red rocks, That continue to jet outward into the sky, God, will we ever be alright. Amongst the dead, alone, but with sight. We scatter with … Continue reading Canyon Kids
