Cometary

hollow inside what I want to hear drops like pins to the tile straining my ear I hear ….nothing aching muscle sits in your palm a thousand salty drops line my lashes press your lips to my temple pull your trigger ….bang reverberation echoes in a hollow chest three words set the universe spinning mine […]

Sunshine in my Pocket

I carry sunshine in my pocket, the same place I keep memories of you. It’s raining here, outside, so slipping my rainbow-stained fingers within, I touch the radiating heat of you. My defenses melt away with every glimpse of your beaming heart and gentle eyes. Those same defenses that my tears had put in place. […]

Journal Entries

Last night I said, “I cried less today than yesterday.” And I felt like it was some small triumph. But today I go pick up his ashes and I’m not sure how to carry on. I’ve done nothing but cry today. I cried literally from the moment I woke up to the time I went […]

Memory Beaches

my lips sigh as the water slowly slips through black grains of sand how I long to feel your caress even as the waves gently lap my feet your red lips quivered when my thumb stroked you there an intake of breath and your eyes sparkled before softly closing I remember your quiet hum of […]

Afterthoughts

my face silently slips beneath the jagged waves moonlight accents edge peaks and valleys and I’m no longer fighting it releasing my final breath I’m floating softly in this cold new world sinking down into the vast depths I look above to see the gentle beams reflections of some far off light sifting through the […]
