He just stands there

with the bloody knife in his hands,

hovering over top his victim

As the adrenalin courses through his vains

the bursting shock of reality,

of what just conspired,



Falling to his knees,

praying to his illforgoten god

a god, until now, he has never admired

He needs help,

he needs salvation,

from the situation

he has now found himself in


All of the drugs

and all of the long nights

have utterly altered his personality

A feeling he hasn’t felt in awhile

hits him like a tsunami wave

and crashes down



But as he failed to realize,



The sirens squeal and flash,

he knows whats coming

he sees a gun,

picks it up,

and puts it to his head….



And it’s all over

Life Kills

Posted: March 8, 2011 by travisplumley in TravisP

No matter how much I try to stay

I feel this invisible force

pulling me, tugging me away

I’m wrapped up in conflict

and feeling so astray

from my former self

The happy-go-lucky guy

that was once me

has turned into a sentimental freak

holding on to everything

that reminded me

of how I used to be

of how life used to be

And now I find myself

wrapped up in nothingness

which kills more

Hopes, Dreams, and Lives

Than Cancer Itself

Distant Reality

Posted: March 7, 2011 by travisplumley in TravisP

Somewhere in this world

there is a life beyond this

Where everything is portrayed in dreams

Where nothing is as it seems

Then one after the other

the earths buds start to die

Then I think to myself,

“This place is one big lie…”

One Mans Death Is Another Mans Bounty

Posted: March 7, 2011 by travisplumley in TravisP

The fight for survival

tears the nation to ruins

As the walls begin to crumble,

as do the hopes and dreams of the innocent youth.

It is a place where everyday,

is a battle.

A place where

one mans death,

is another mans bounty.

People want to believe again

but belief is a graveyard.

They just can’t help them selves

with their addictions.

Walking around fixated,

dressed in black.

They are wishing

that their life story

was fiction.

Never to be Loved

Posted: December 2, 2010 by travisplumley in TravisP

I wanted to show you the moon

but your eyes were filled with tears

I wanted to give you the stars

but you said it was impossible

I wanted you to ride the Milky Way with me

but you said you were scared of heights

I wanted to give you the world

But you said you already  had one on your shoulders

Winter is A Plague

Posted: December 1, 2010 by travisplumley in TravisP

Winter is coming

slowly but surely

everyone is waiting

for a flurry

Time to hide

time to kill

Everything in its path

A Fight for His Life

Posted: December 1, 2010 by travisplumley in TravisP

He was running as far as he could

going fast, as fast as a crack head’s heart beat

All his troubles were catching up to him

There was almost no way out of it

but to maybe jump states

But he couldn’t bring himself

It seemed as if it were a dream

and he was on a treadmill

trying to run away

Going no-where fast

Missing Something on the Inside

Posted: November 30, 2010 by travisplumley in TravisP

Maybe there could be that chance

To be whole once again

Finding that certain someone

Who might have a dance with me?

And help me feel alive again

But with so many failures

And not enough attempts

I felt myself die on the inside

And my soul charged with contempt

Going on and on

Without any remorse

My mind runs off

And my hearts scars count the score

Of the battles between

One in the same

Of my heart, soul, and mind

When combined, they have no name

Just a kind feeling

Without one drop of shame

Some Where Beyond the Border of Chaos

Posted: November 30, 2010 by travisplumley in TravisP

The Fear of anguish

Enlightened with the sight of war

Coming to breed

Within your soul

You want out of the mess you’re in

But you’ve dug your hole too deep,

And your skeletons begin to creep

Out into the open

For everyone to see

I wonder how aghast they will seem,

To see you

Beyond the Border of Chaos?

I remember

Posted: October 10, 2010 by travisplumley in TravisP

I remember

I remember those long hard nights

sitting alone in a room barely big enough for a bed

I remember waiting all day

long enough so I could see your face

I remember being alone and feeling down all day

until you came along and gave me that spark

to brighten back up my pathway

I remember those weekends where it was nothing but fun

avoiding home as much as possible

always staying on the run

I remember the screaming and yelling

all those nights

filled with nothing but turmoil and strife

I remember you calling my phone

saying something was wrong

or asking to hang out

because you haven’t seen me in so long

I remember your comfort

just when I couldn’t take life anymore

you were there to hold me

I remember those long, hard nights

I still remember

Whats harder than a mountain

Comes as swift as a hawk

Maybe as slow as a sloth

with no time to think

it can send you somewhere grand

or maybe somewhere hot

it gives an unexpected twist to life

can alter any one’s mind

And those who have experienced it

cannot explain it

It lives in the present,

remembers the past,

and it fears not of the future

A remembrance of others

and a time to mourn

A time we like to call


I’ll Be Gone

Posted: October 6, 2010 by travisplumley in TravisP, Uncategorized

Here we go again

Will this ever end

Back to the same routine as everyday

Why does is matter

It only makes her madder

When I try to move on

Will you remember me in the end

Don’t try to forget me

Keep my memories with you

But just let me go

And I’ll be gone

I’ll be gone

Before you know it

Don’t blink

You might just miss me

Don’t cry

You might just see me

I’ll be there for a moment

Will you remember me in the end

Don’t try to forget me

Keep my memories with you

But just let me go

And I’ll be gone

Your Love

Posted: October 6, 2010 by travisplumley in TravisP

If I was lost and alone in the most barren desert
Your love would be enough to quench my thirst
At the worst time in my life
Your love was there to pick me up again
When I am ever in pain
Your love is there to sooth me
Water in the deepest trench of the ocean
For you, that is how deep my love runs

What is Love?

Posted: September 15, 2010 by travisplumley in TravisP

What is love

When you no longer have it

When you are no longer able

to reach out and grab it

Longing for a certain someone

who’s hundreds  of miles away

Sometimes you sit wondering

to yourself, thinking that

maybe you should have stayed?

Hoping that you’ll have the chance

to be reunited once again

Or maybe just see them

Even if it’s just a passing glance

Sitting next to yourself

wondering if they’ll be alright

Staying up, thinking

hard and long

Being deprived of sleep

Almost every night

My Color

Posted: September 14, 2010 by travisplumley in TravisP

Most of the time I am a standout red

seeming powerful and alive

as if the only thing to hold me back

is gravity forcing me to stand

Being myself without a care in the world

and not looking back on things to morn

But sometimes I am black

dark and secluded

bidden by the chains of society

Lost within the states,

but hiding within their shadows

Even though the colors are different

they are two in the same
