There are some amazingly good lines in O.D.’s piece and I look forward to seeing where he takes us next in this series… I ruminate over an unearthly amount of time here, This medium and I bleed into each other, A testament to our unspoken blood oath. Quite the task, … Thoughts Like A Theme […]

I was utterly blown away by this piece. No words. Just…. WOW. She wandered like a butterfly Sweeter than kindness was her smile Her heart, innocent and pure She had pretty blue eyes That looked like pearls from … ‘Love is a myth’

Collaborations

I just realized, like a couple minutes ago, that all I am is made up of collaborations. Joint efforts between me and you and you and me and me and him and her and me. Bits of you smeared into me. Cooperations and associations. Collusions and alliances. Combination of participation. Under all the layers is […]

Reflections in a Mirror

Mirror, mirror, faded glass: What’s that I see? It’s me. I’m lonely and fearful; A mouse tiny, insignificant; Overlooked, unseen, unnoticed. I’ll never be good enough… ….will I?

A Thousand Things I Never Say

I have a thousand things to say to you. If only you would listen. Oh, you hear my words, but you don’t listen to my heart. The meaning beneath what I say. My casual, how are you today? means that I am thinking about you. And I want the very best for you. I truly […]
