I Can’t Unsee It Now

I looked out into the world And I saw it . . . We are all main characters in our own books  . . . I couldn’t unsee what I had seen  All of us walking around with pages and chapters  . . . With bookmarks to save the important parts  . . . With... 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 →

Who Are We?

As the stars turn above us,  Your head upon my chest. Your skin pressed against mine Our bodies made to rest . . I lose the line between who we are  Because  Who are you ? And who is she ? As the stars turn above us  Is it really important?  The “who are we?”... Continue Reading →

She Loved Until She Lost Herself

She loved until she lost herself She gave until she was empty She hung on until her fingers bled And her hourglass was hungry . . She was an inveterate long time lover each chapter in her life sewn together neatly between each love . . Never knowing how to say goodbye Never knowing when... Continue Reading →

It’s Where Your Compass Leads You

You said you dreamt of it once  . . a freckle  . . Like a kiss upon her thigh  . . It’s where all the roads are traveled  It’s where your compass leads you  . . It’s where the time goes  When it flies by  , , It winks at you  . . like a... 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 →

Back To A Time

sifting through a box of old things Book after book pamphlet after pamphlet  treatise on anxiety and depression  . . . I am brought back to a time  when our lives were dictated by school bells  And seating charts  . . . Where one rumor  Became our entire world  And one heartbreak  Was announced through ...

I Can’t Be Mad At You

I can’t be mad at you You stole my heart  You tricked me  . . . I can’t be mad at you  I walked toward you with a veil over my eyes  You led me blindly  You robbed me  . . . And I let you  . . . How can I be mad at... Continue Reading →

You Are No Longer Mine

I read somewhere  That you were no longer mine  . . That you finally opened up your heart  And honestly, It was about time . . I read somewhere  That you no longer belonged to me . . That our memories  Are no longer cherished  It’s not my heart that holds your key  . .... Continue Reading →

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 →

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...
