A New Schnikism: (Poetry Series) Submission

I do not think you know, The way this should go. You pushed me to the line, I tripped or fell each and every time. I showed you what you failed to see, The central parts of me. Never knowing when to start, I showed you how I’d stop, All your lies. All your games….

A New Schnikism (Poetry Series) Expressionless

What do you say to taking a chance? What do you say to growing up? What do you say to loving again? What do you say to being alone? What do you say to finding a home? What do you say to give up on love? What do you say when your heart is broken?…

A New Schnikism: (Poetry Series) The Perfect Li(f)e

This is my story,  which is quite normal.  At the midpoint of my life, I had it all. A beautiful man,  A ring upon my finger,  A lovely home,  A great job,  an epic collection of friends…  From the outside,  it was a perfect life. From the inside,  It was the perfect lie,  Inside I…

A New Schnikism: (Poetry Series) Forever Questioning

A New Schnikism: (Poetry Series) A Final Bow?

Once again, it’s late. Once again, I’ve been crying. Once again, I cannot breathe. The steady rhythm of hyperventilation. Once again, all I see is your taillights. Once again, your back is turned to me. Once again, all those voices are screaming in my head. Once again, they remind me of the very worst. A…

Today’s Jam: Boys in the Street

Somehow I missed this song on National Coming Out Day. This is one of my favorite artists. His voice is amazing and this song burrows deep into my soul right now. Recently, I realized I’m now considered an “elder” in the gay community. I guess with time, comes wisdom, love, and strength. Whether you’re seeking…

Today’s Jam: You Will Be Found

As some of you know, I’m semi-obsessed with this song as of late. Let this serve as a reminder for you, too, that if you are feeling lost…. For whatever reason. I’m here for you.

A New Schnikism: (Poetry Series) Faith or Faithful?

How can your life be condensed, to a few short days? How can we know what the truth of this life really is? Fractionally, individually in this world  we can find a truth. The laws of science were discovered by men of faith, let us remember those men of faith, in trying to explain God’s…

A New Schnikism: (Poetry Series) Wistful Wondering

There was once a time, In the story of my life,  that all I ever wanted deserved, desired, begged for, was to feel, was to become  the strongest monument of your love, to know  without question, to feel, without a single moment’s pause the power, and the safety, that comes from an open soul, that…
