My wish for you

A drop in the ocean, twists and pulls, swirls and dives, pushed out, pulled in, gasping, forever dancing in the whim of the waters, seemingly caressing every side. A feather in the wind, reaching ever higher, burned by the sun, coaxed by the breeze, afraid to fall, yet destined to be unsure of whether the…

~hate~

Legs wrapped around sadness born from passion that was thought to have died two days before but revealed itself again with no warning. The tears meant nothing but goodbye. She can never trust him now. Yet he still stands a little too close. His bare skin brushes on hers in the middle of daytime business.…

the beauty of the fall

If only the graces would define the meaning behind the hole they placed in my heart, I would understand the why as I traverse this earth, lone souled with no arm to hold. Others stand beside me from time to time, but never long enough for me to feel the weight removed from the boulder…

~unforgivable~

She felt the loneliness seep in her body, outstretched hand met with nothing but cold satin sheets. She was beginning to grow accustomed to the silence. It mixed in a strange twist of sorrow and comfort as conversations battled in the stale air. Phones don't lie when they make your heart race and build into…

His eyes

They still smile even when he's not. They speak in kindness and fill me with hope. They remind me of the man I loved. They belong to another man. Not the one who stands before me. They belong to the boy who stole my heart. They were the only truth in the sea of lies.…

Spent a lifetime swimming in deceptive waters, bled from tears wishing to belong. Gasping for air as the bystanders watch, all the while thinking the noises are splendid songs given out of love.

Light. It flickers off the surface like a surprise waiting underneath, slithering on the edge of the tangent as it ripples into the distance. I can't remember the first time I questioned it all, but I always remember the last. It gets easier trusting in the smiles that fall from above, even if they are…

sometimes I cry

There's nothing to explain, nothing to fix. My heart aches with so many of life's disappointing turns, I can't dwell on just one to allow it to finish it's course. It lives within me always and awakens when it will, like a dragon who has killed it prey yet still lurks for more. A grief…

~patience~

Heart beats heavy and fast holding tight to tense conversations saved for tomorrow. Sleep can wait for restless souls whose minds search out answers breathing through the windows that howl with each gust of breeze, begging to take comfort inside a warm home. I wonder if I will ever find safety in the embrace of…

Moonstruck sadness

Be in the moment. Breathe in the wind, full of life, its waves brushing anger on your flesh as it whips across your face, beating the happiness from your heart. Every step forward brings another phase of relief and another pull towards the unknown depths that spiral into a plane of existence I have been desperately…
