How Long

How long will it take for the light to fade from her eyes? Before you become a soft memory? For the ache to release its grip? Oh how her tears flow! (May they stop soon.) How her shoulders shudder! How she sighs! How many hours has she given to wild desperation? To hope? To wistful […]

Do You See?

A New Name

Twisted and full of fury Burning with something deeper More real than this earth Surrounded and engulfed Magnificent I am delighted in you I am a doe clinging to rock cliffs, safe within, always finding my foothold I am an albatross soaring while the auroras dance above me, my wings dip and I spin I […]

Take your assumptions…

Hey. Fuck you. Yeah, you. That’s right, I said it. Fuck. You. Don’t like my art? Don’t look at it. Don’t like my words? Don’t read them. Think I’m here to steal your man/lover/etc? Fuck you.

The Heart Thief

I called out to the moon late one night: “Here, keep my heart for safe keeping; It’s been hurt so many times and I give it away far too easily. Please protect it from those it is looking for” She smiled kindly and reached down, Surrounded my wounded heart with light And with her beams […]

Nights Long Gone

Misery, Misery, Misery

Is naïveté my middle name? Did I make a fool of myself? Am I telling myself sweet lies to candy-coat reality? What’s really important? Is it me? I think not. All the old habits come back to haunt me. I beg and plead but still they come back to me. I am rotting flesh and […]
