Equalizer


I can't be around you and not be affected.

I can’t be around you and not be affected.

You are my biggest area of influence.
I can’t be around you and not be affected.
You have leveled me out & I have become your equalizer.
You are as I am.
Somehow balance has been achieved.
It’s that feel good intoxication, minus the morning after.
We’ve been tempered like steel & refined with purpose.

Quote: Truth Serum


Be careful what you do, be careful what you say.

Be careful what you do, be careful what you say.

Liquor is the ultimate truth serum; it demands that we be true to our nature.

“It provokes and unprovokes; it provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance.” – William Shakespeare (Macbeth)

Quotes: Write Drunk; Edit Sober (Remix)


“Write drunk; edit sober.” -Earnest Hemingway

“Write drunk — drunken with emotion. Whether in love or pain; hatred or joy, write intoxicated and completely wasted in the moment.

Edit sober — when all the winds have calmed, and when your eyes are cleared from the poison of life. Clean it up and make your pain presentable.” -Brittany Rose (elaborating on Hemingway)

This quote describes how I approach writing poetry.
