Dreams

I had dreams and I had so many memories
and more and more I see less and less of them
it is a corruption of what I had planned with you
its the frayed edges of belief that I can never hem

She says she can’t breathe and I am holding too tight
I could lose everything I once had [...]

I guess I don’t have much to say about this work.

Here is some possible ways to display the series:

Day 7 – Failed Poems Series

Day 7 of my work commences and I know that the work continues in my head no matter what I do.  Today’s work centers around things that I lost and things that I have dreamed about.

“Visage” Layer 1, 2, 3 and combined

Sweetness and Sour

I haven’t forgotten the sweetness
or the reason we were together
too many things have been taken away

its as if all of creation has become corrupt
with no choice of escaping and it comes in 5 days
with time off for good behavior

The sadness grips me in a different way each time,
Just like my contentment
Or my commitment

What have I [...]

Cross My Heart and Hope to Die/Stick a Needle in My Eye

I remember when you told me the news                I know that there is no turning back
It’s only an option I can’t refuse
You were straight faced with nothing less             the words have no meaning
Like a picture taken without a photo lens              and I will have to deal with the punishment

Please promise me you won’t die
Even [...]

Stick A Needle In My Eye

I know that there is no turning back
the words have no meaning
and I will have to deal with the punishment
for our lies and the words that have failed
there are some things that we
can never tell the truth about
it is better to lie about fear than
to experience it
what would you do then
to stick a needle in [...]

Cross My Heart and Hope to Die

I remember when you told me the news
It’s only an option I can’t refuse
You were straight faced with nothing less
Like a picture taken without a photo lens

Please promise me you won’t die
Even if the promise was a lie
I cross my heart and hope to die

I knew the truth couldn’t be true
I knew how to [...]

Don’t let this be the last memory of me {Failed Moment}

Fighting the good fight
or even the questionable fight
Seems we’ll never be able to let it go
I am so afraid of not knowing
The last moment that I have
Leaving you and leaving me
I know that we can only wish
To leave something greater
Really that’s all we ever want
To be more than the sum of our parts
I’d be happy [...]

2010 {Failed} Artist Statement

Inevitably, projects begin to intersect.  In the midst of the work that I continue to work on, my life dictates the work that I perform and execute.  In 2007 my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. My work took a back seat.  There was a most evident threat: cancer, our lives, [...]

Day 4: Failed Poems Project

Here’s a pic of the inside of box 1.  I am not sure if I am happy with it but I am sick of this box and I have moved on to the next box.  Maybe I will come back and rework this box later.  For some reason, titles seem pretty worthless right now.

Above are [...]
