Focus Can hurt You


      I like to be alone so i can write. But focus can hurt you. I don't want to become some stress casualty in early middle age.

Trying to Catch Up


            Death. I had followed him through all the years of my life. As he dropped bodies in my path as little reminders to me and others that the end of the road was no bed of roses, no kingdom come. It felt as if my whole life was an obstacle course, a slogging journey trying to catch up with Death, trying to get a good look at his face .............

Darkness Shall Be the Light


       But the faith and the love are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought ; So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.

Someone Marches Brave
























                                 Always through the darkest phase
                                 Be it thick or thin      
                                 Always someone marches brave     
                                 Here beneath my skin

Last Fair Deal Gone Down


                                 ............. don't cry this time
                                 If you cry 'bout a nickel, you'll die 'bout a dime
                                 She wouldn't cry, but the money weren't mine

F.X Toole


         Ring magic is different from the magic of the theatre, because the curtain never comes down - because the blood in the ring is real blood, and the broken noses and the broken hearts are real, and sometimes they are broken forever.
