About The Blog

Arthor Journer is my pen name.
"Arthor" comprises "art" + "Author" while "Journer" defines the journey that I was on and continue to travel.
In this blog is the emotional byproduct of this journey.

"Rites of Art" is the title because it is my "writes" of passage.

Thought You Knew

Lofty dreams falter and tumble to the ground
Skies scream dark and cold when you’re not around
Winds blow my mind and the sea fries my soul
Rain is like sharp needles and muscles lose their control
Flowers emit stench and food taste like dirt
All is in disarray when you’re not next to my earth
Eyes are blind my brain is so sore
Flesh is weak and my heart is tore
Soul is aching my pulse grows weak
Hands grow numb when your touch it seeks
Thought you knew that the effect you have on me
That like eagles wings you allow my heart to fly free
Thought you knew how the atmosphere obeys your command
Perfect peace and contentment when next to you I stand
Lightning strikes my mind volcanoes erupt in my heart
Tsunamis attack the shores of my soul tearing it apart
Deep within my flesh my muscles forever ache
The foundation of me quivers with the onset of earthquakes
Tree branches seek to hang me wild animals come in pursuit
All is in dismay when I am not next to you
My oceans and rivers turn to blood and begin to rot
Ambitions and goals launched but swiftly come to naught
Spinning my wheels in the mire of shame I get nowhere
No caring hands no tender voice alone for you are not there
Thought you knew what you bring to my reality
Thought you knew that you are a key ingredient of my sanity
Thought you knew that next to me is where you are supposed to be
Thought you knew that together we fulfill destiny
