The Halls

1920 1280 Jason Ramsey

These are halls where souls go to die. Where agony parlays grief and fluorescent beams shock minds into submission. Where clamoring “it is finished” reverberates against concrete walls and rings…

When You Were Young

612 612 Jason Ramsey

These Barren Fields

1920 1271 Jason Ramsey

These barren fields, Wolf-grey coats of bark and Dust, coarse lines bleeding Trails, idle in stillness, Parsed, perched, Widows of breath, Brittle as ash in wind Sit slack-jawed, cold, Hinterlands of impervious…

A Repentance

1280 960 Jason Ramsey

Repentance. Waning appetite of faith-junctions betrothed. Relaxing, embracing tapestries lost. Misplaced versions of stark archetypes, Leaning, beleaguering, vacating thin veils Of guilt-shed sin on vandalized walls. We wait. Fake. Deface. Glorified perversions of angst-ridden blame, An upheaval of martyrdom Placating grace. We wait like frost-white dalliances of hate. Forgiveness. Mirrored truths of disingenuous praise. Succumbing, shedding insidious skin. Forlorn ashes of dead souls, Simmering, frothing, bequeathing tastes Of half-sighed lies on brittle-dry lips. We drink. Sink. Relinquish. An artifact of fate Belaboring grace. We claw like wolf-thieves approaching the gate. Acceptance. Repenting diatribes of angelic malaise. Atoning, dethroning serpentine reign. Heralded saints of banished restraint, Bleeding, careening, embattling faith Of deaf-toned harps on bleak magistrates. We pour. Scowl. Implore. An advocate of priesthood Postulating will.…

The Fringe

1920 1281 Jason Ramsey

Aspiration leaves us hanging on precipices — balmy, nervous, like wet leaves sweating off midsummer rain. It gets us close, but seldom close enough. Close enough to feel the rush,…

Love swells

1906 1080 Jason Ramsey

Love swells. I often imagine being immersed in dark water, where the only light is the fading sun refracting on the surface. It’s a brilliant light, a kaleidoscope of color…
