She told him . . “I want nothing  I am ninety-one Please let me go”  . . He looked at her solemnly  . . “Don’t make me do this,  No”  . . She took his hand and said  . . “I lost the greatest love of my life ten years ago And I have loved... Continue Reading →

Emergency Room War Zone

As I walk through the threshold  I am assaulted by the sight  . . The smells pummel through me  The energy as dark as night  . . Screams heard from every corner  Howls of despair  the wailing of fear  . . A man crying over limbs that should still be there  . . A woman... Continue Reading →

I Hope You Are Dancing In Your Sleep

I ran to him . . “Are you okay?”  . . his expression brightened up like the sun  . . “I want to go dancing”  . . He smiles  . . And I laugh to join the fun  . . Tomorrow I heard you are no longer speaking  . . Your breath was taken from... Continue Reading →

The Bridge Between Our Souls

When our hands touch  I am awakened  . . Our fingertips  The bridge between our souls  . . Blood flowing Vibrating with electricity  . . Tantalizing  Brewing , A potion that cannot be undone  . . Because I want you more today than yesterday  And I know I’ll still want you more when the day... Continue Reading →

Where Were You ?

They asked you for help . . With their silent eyes  They called for you  In their muted tears  They screamed for you to see them  . . Where were you, then?  . . Making choices for “their best interests”  Not caring when they told you They felt helpless . . I’m sorry children You... Continue Reading →

I Saw The Hate In Your Eyes

I saw the hate in your eyes  It was clear as day  . . The disregard for a life  That you will soon take away  . . No cries from the helpless Found its way into your soul?  . . No tears from the defenseless  Made you want to make a different call?  . .... Continue Reading →

We Were Meant For Different Loves

That Could Be Me

I saw her scars  Evidence of a life  Where great just wasn’t good enough Where She was always just one nip away from perfect  One tuck away from perfection  One stitch away from happiness  I saw  her eyes of desperation  As she picked at things I could not see  Although I was happy to oblige ...

Jenga

I wish I could make it stop  I do  It’s like Playing jenga Trying to figure out the puzzle when it was already whole to begin with  Every piece  A clue that I must pull out and dissect  poking holes through my own logic  Seeing through my own thoughts  Piling on top of each other ...

My Hope Is that You Also Love Me For The Changes I Bring

I hear the “pitter-patter”  Of the rain outside Not long ago The sun  Stared with an intensity Of a loyal wife  Who has laid eyes on her husband  Being a tad less than that How labile this world is  I curse it But then I see a reflection of myself  For I am the sun... Continue Reading →

On Most Days

On most days She wakes up hours before I do She jumps on my chest Searing pain Breathless  On most days I’m too tired to take her to the park She barks at me  Begging  “I’m boooored”  I can hear her thinking  On most days  I know she deserves more  She looks at me She... Continue Reading →

My Fear

I remember what it felt like To laugh with you To watch your face turn red  laughing so hard You couldn’t breathe I remember laughing with you  All my muscles go weak falling to the floor  You just got me Conversations with you Were like portals into my own mind  The sincerity of our confidence...

That Much I Know

With so much unknown in the world today There is an abundance of  Fear Sadness Confusion With a reality so new to us  There is an overflowing amount of  Resistance Question Panic  The FACT of the matter is despite what anyone says There is definite  Loss  Loss of what life once was Loss of loved...

At The End Of a Very Dark Road

How ominous this random solitary toaster at the end of a very dark road causing me to hesitate  Forebodingly  It stares at me Daring me  To come into the darkness  I cannot look away I cannot take a step As if a coyote were in it’s place  How ominous  This solitary toaster Sitting at the...

I Probably Shouldn’t Say This

She says it’s confidential  She says it’s confrontational  I probably shouldn’t say this  She wouldn’t want me to But who cares  She’s filled to the brim with anger  It is squeezing out of every seam Orafices  Dripping Like an addict She’s trembling  What does it all mean?  She loves with all her heart  But she...

Underneath the Billowing Sea

Sitting upon the dock one day I stared out into the ocean Deep blue waters Swelling with each wave And appeared such a notion The fear of what is down there Underneath the billowing sea The fear of what is buried, deep inside of me What creatures linger ? What monsters hide ? As I... Continue Reading →
