And So It Goes

In every heart there is a room, A sanctuary safe and strong, To heal the wounds from lovers past, Until a new one comes along. When we first met, I saw your eyes, And felt a stirring from inside, And though I tried to stop my heart, To you it flew, to my surprise. I’ve [...]

Towers of Sand

I sleep and dream of towers in the sand Whose wondrous figures stand gleaming in the sun For all to marvel. I dream of men who stand And build there glories with eyes stretched to heaven, And hearts turned ever upwards towards new heights. Then many more I see, alike in kinds, Beholding gloriously the [...]

Cellphone Prayer

I tumble through this doorway in my hand Into the tangled webbing of a Mind, Into a new and devastating land Where eyes that once could see are nearly blind. I long for quiet boredom and the bland. I long for hide and seek until I find. Oh may I have the power to cut [...]

Birthday Wishes

You bow your head down to blow out the candles. Close your eyes, count to ten.   The backs of your eyelids are the color of the orange flames that waver as you pucker your lips.   You start to wish for the same thing you have every year, someone you can call yours.   [...]

If I Were a Color

If you ever paint me, paint me in a storm. Streak my memory across the swirling sky like streaks of flashing lightning. Let my echoing be painted as the rain that runs upon their rooftops. I have felt like a day without a sunset. I am the wailing of an untouched canvas. My heartbeat reminds me of [...]

Man of The Woods

I set upon the earth my sight. Curious to its horizon, eager to its peaks. I watched a sunset from far away, but it was snatched from me by the sounds of a crying man.   A man built like boulders, shoulders wide. His chest forged from steel and stone. His hands were the width [...]
