The One Where I Fear My Family

My phone began to violently vibrate, startling me out of my comatose state. I was staring at the TV, but wasn’t really watching it. I was defeated and weary¬†after an arduous battle with Baby C over¬†his afternoon nap. The display on my Android phone told me my father was calling. I didn’t really feel like … Continue reading

Feature Friday: I Won’t Take It

Here we are again, Maphia. It’s Friday!!! (Do the excessive exclamation points betray how excited I am about that?) We are at the end of five excruciatingly long work days which culminates (normally) into two long days of debauchery. And chores. Sigh. Our houses should clean themselves. Anyhow, besides being a segue to the weekend, … Continue reading

Ignite Hell

Love has been vanquished Conquered by time Robbed of emotions Detestable crime Carved deep within A gaping hole Ignite hell Ignite hell in my soul Wonderment grows Why does love fade? No reason to maintain This foolish charade Here we part ways Fates intertwined Ignite hell Ignite hell in my mind Conflagration enkindled Deep in … Continue reading

This poem has been sitting in my drafts folder for over seven months. It has no bearing on anything going on right now. I figured I may was well publish it before I eventually tire of it and delete it. Be gentle, I wrote this while…not sober. It’s not great, but not totally horrible, either. … Continue reading

Miraculous Man and the Drunken Farm Boys

My boss is an idiot. Those were the words flowing through Matt’s mind as he traversed a narrow, two-lane road carving it’s way through the hills of Northern Kentucky. The pizza joint he worked for was getting desperate for business, and had expanded its delivery radius as a result. Now, Matt had to deliver to … Continue reading

One More Hour

Far too many people have left this world far before their time. Cancer and heart disease have taken people I love at relatively young ages. Cancer has actually taken family away from me before I ever had a chance to know them. When I stumbled across this post by Tric a couple of weeks ago, … Continue reading

What Does Age Say About You?

In my youth I frequently looked to the future. I looked forward to my birthday. I looked forward to the things I’d be able to finally do once I’d reached the next magical age. I could drive at 16. I became a legal adult (not a real one – I still haven’t done that yet) … Continue reading


I stare at the ceiling I stare at the wall Despite my fatigue My eyelids won’t fall It goes to work The beast within Its task to accomplish An evil grin Wicked thoughts roam Pervade my mind Anarchic demons In my head confined What ifs aplenty What coulds abound A pool full of worries In … Continue reading
