Poem IX – Simple Touch

My clenched hands sit deep in my pocket, but I reach. My entire body sways back and forth, but I reach. My wide eyes close slowly, but I reach. Each creative thought is extended and captured before I can touch. My unseen hands cannot feel beyond the pocket that encloses what has not been written.... Continue Reading →

Advanced Prototype

"Don’t invent a new mousetrap; create a new mouse." - Topher Pike Throughout my life, I have spent many business meetings talking about mousetraps and widgets. If you can create a superior product, you have the beginnings of a fortune. What if that product was you? What if you could create a version of yourself... Continue Reading →

Poem VII – Peaceful Chaos

While the car shakes uncontrollably in a moment of vehement frustration, I can help but mirror its lifeless destination. Slamming my hands together in a violent rage as I release control of every instinct keeping me protected. Losing perpetual control my mind instantly turns from persistent peacefulness to spontaneous chaos. The car still moves forward,... Continue Reading →

Colorful Frequencies

"If the story of your life is in black and white, change the frequency, and experience life in color." - Topher Pike We all tell ourselves the perfect story to justify the lives we live.

Poem VI – The Playwright

Poem V – Round 1

Awakened from my deepest darkened sleep, I think and rethink should I turn over once more or invest in infinite ink. The ringing of a bell shifts my mind back and forth from reality.

Poem IV – Potato Tree

How is it you stood before me when your seed was planted before I could see. Out of the debris, you have risen waiting for the perfect time to be. There is familiarity all around you, but your birth is so unique. Each branch extended provides the answer I seek. I did not place you in... Continue Reading →

Gratitude is the Foundation

Poem III – Motionless Rainfall

The trees they do not move, and the flowers stand still in amazement as the rainfall beats louder and louder. Do they know something I do not? The single blade of grass I quickly notice has no purpose but to find one single drop. Staring into nothingness, I can't help but feel everything. The landscape... Continue Reading →
