Broken Layers 

Ambients is felt, beneath the floor

Dust settles, cellar floor

Ageing, soaking up unique flavour

A chill seeps into empty the rooms

Each layer of snow, adds weight until the roof collapse

Fast rush of heat pops a few nail heads up from the floor boards

Structural flaws

Natural weathering

Break through

Crushing aged barrels

Leaking exlixers

Seeping  into the second cellar below

Being poured into empty glasses

Opposing rotation carousel mirror

Shows a grand party happening

Era that was once decadent in its own way

Flash bulb shattering

All the eyes light up in the reflection of the rotating carousel

Soft spoken voices echoing into a empty room

Shadow outlines fade away

Subtle Words


Are our bodies, sometimes vain 

Thoughts that set us apart, individually 

All our insides are more pretty 

Showing what are true colors can be 

Peeling back layers of the flesh

Will lead us deeper into one another

True beauty, pour into me

Everlasting breath, we need no toxic fumes to fill our lungs full 

Allow our hearts to filter out the worst 

It won’t stop there!

Why do you hold your head down so low?

Stop to look at the sky above, traveling overhead 

Tracks you’ve made in the dirt, will never change

Until you begin to chase more than after your dreams 

Somebody esle may have felt the same pain you’ve been through 


Leave all worries behind

Recieve the free healing that’s been given to you…..

Endure what lies ahead 

As rust decays, so will you

What you leave behind, make it your legacy
