Poem: Highway of Life

When I’m sitting down, full of my own stink, I wonder many things most people think about. The problems continue to spin around, at a fast pace, never slowing down when it should. And I’m not sure who will replace the darkness within, shine… Continue Reading “Poem: Highway of Life”

Poem: Indecision

I find myself flitting in between happiness and dreariness, loathing what makes me unhappy and secretly embracing the other parts ripping my brains apart and forces my heart to beat faster than it should. There is nothing worse than knowing you are nothing, being… Continue Reading “Poem: Indecision”

Poem: Sand Isn’t Water

I closed my eyes, restless, unable to sleep. I kept them closed because that is what humans do. All I wanted to do was open my eyes, rub them raw with my pointy fingers and think of better times. My eyelids settled and I… Continue Reading “Poem: Sand Isn’t Water”

Poem: That Woman

From behind closed doors, she came out in a fury. Long ago and deep down the sparks flew, they stood close as she sat high on her black horse. Jumping down with purpose and climbing one step at time with legacy, knowledge, and future… Continue Reading “Poem: That Woman”

Poem: It Can Wait

I was not good at many things, from trombones to violins to brushstrokes. My mouth and hands did not know the way. My brain did not understand how the curvature of a spine melted the background of a frame. If there was a way… Continue Reading “Poem: It Can Wait”

Poem: Reds and Oranges

Surfing the sky, red waves and orange clouds, I want to be there. Floating high and mighty, like a shaman cultivating power, tending to her fingernails, making sure the toenails are sharp. Flying this powerful, between the folds of the waves, the sea creatures… Continue Reading “Poem: Reds and Oranges”
