A stinging emptiness sucks the creative nectar from my soul. The silent stare from my muse plunges deep the sting into my heart and I die. Lost. Wandering.  I learn that I am compatible with my loneliness. I am akin to the echo of my own thoughts reverberating through the empty chambers of a heart. A desire for friendship mocks me. My promises–I keep. My desires– I slaughter.

Eyes down—love

A rage drowns in the whiskey of a promise—forget…forgive…forget…forgive…forget. Through the destruction of myself, I am good. Amid the honesty of myself, I am lost.

Eyes down—-loss

I don’t care if this makes no sense. Sense I understand.  Sense is not what plagues me…

Eyes down—-tears

Be happy. Smile. A new day is dawning.

Eyes down—hollow.

      1. Plus I’m so happy when I see your name pop up in my notifications! Someone earlier said in a somewhat kind of tone that made me think they thought I was bad, “Just how many men do you email???” And I thought, but didn’t say, “Well, gee, there’s my buddy Edward that gave me blessed blessed pastoral counsel….” 🙂

      2. I like when your name pops up. I feel bad for going awol on the wordpress thing and deleting all my stuff. I really have been composing an email to you. I think you are a great person. I love your heart. I’m glad my words benefitted you….as yours do me.

      3. well, if anything is solid in me… it’s my desire to be authentic and real— to be loving. I don’t want to hurt anybody. I don’t like to lie. I really do long for a world where Jesus is King and we all try to understand each other. I”m babbling.

      4. Ed, oh my word, I started listening to the Bible on my way to work every day, it’s been a life changer. Something about hearing Romans aloud, it really gave me such a better grasp. After a few weeks of listening over and over to Romans, that voice in my head telling me how horrible I was finally shut up.


      5. It’s a chat server, my kids used it for gaming so I hopped on there to keep an eye on them. That’s where I met my young Jewish friend Asa that’s become such a good friend. He visited with us as he drove from his college graduation to his new job in Chicago. “Don’t talk to strangers on the internet!!!” I said to my kids…..
