By John Patrick Robbins


On another night like any other.
I will pen the lines I lived once
Now I bleed them alone.

Fading like ink soon forgotten with time.
We all have our hang ups.

I know the wind can’t tell stories and my soul cannot bare the complete truth.

Old friends , do you know a dream that soon morphed into a monster you prefer to ignore ?

Nights alone allow you to exist as simply you are.

A page to fill a story I won’t finish.
A deadline I will never meet.


John Patrick Robbins is the editor and chief of the Rye Whiskey Review and Under The Bleachers .

His work is always unfiltered.

I wrote my verbal grave now I find the abyss a place from which I cannot escape.

Poisoned in my logic.

Dying all the same.

Yeah that sounds just about right.
