Upside Down

I’m upside down My feet in the air, Head on the ground. Wasn’t supposed to be this way. Didn’t realize I was that attached. Didn’t see she was my center. Now I’m detached, Free falling with no clue What to do, to chase or…

Hard to miss you

Last week Grandpa passed. I wrote this poem for him while flying out to Utah. I would have posted earlier, but it’s just been crazy about week. Grandpa, It’s hard to miss you when you’re still here In the jovial nature of loved ones…

Goo

Basalt core covered in ice, the heart was frozen through, But I forgot how frigid I’d become until again there was you. I hemmed and I hawed, yet it did no service, the heat was given off from you. Through and through I melted…

Into The Darkness

I ran under the gaze of Nocturne sleep walking into her bosom. Street lights and headlights lit the way as I stepped swiftly, aggressively, Until my legs ached, and with the heat of blood and exertion stretched easily. Into the darkness I ran as…

Writing Progress – None

I was supposed to write tonight. I wasted the evening. We got to Oryx, though, so I’m happy for that. The publisher has let me know they received everything, but no idea the current time table. I feel thin. It’s like walking through smoke,…

Unexpected Sun

I forgot what the sun was like until the dark clouds parted. They made way and the warmth of day shined upon my face. It was hot, it was blinding, it forced me to my knees. I wanted to run and hide, I wanted…

There was a light upon a hill I could have chosen to ascend

There was a light upon a hill I could have chosen to ascend. But I said no, and saw the cave, and down into darkness I went to blend. Nothing good was in that cave, or so I have surmised, For it was slimy…

The Void

There was a dark pit inside my soul, and it grew and it grew as people fed it so. Through loneliness, betrayal, through time and paranoia, that dark pit grew into a void, and I looked into it. The more I looked upon that…

How am I

How am I? I am pained Every day when you’re not here Every week when I wake up to an empty pillow Every month when I’m reminded I’m alone by other couples Every year when I can’t find someone better I am determined Every day I…

The Blood is Hot

The blood is hot, Gives off steam. Need an outlet, But desires are lean. I see the candy, Just want a lick, But I am denied, And like a bomb I tick. My sight, it blurs, Covered in lust I can only beg, Bury…

Two Years

You said I’d change in two years Said that I’d move on in two years Couldn’t go off on your adventure, For fear I wouldn’t be here. I’m still here after two years, Couldn’t heal after two years, Still have all my pain Still…

Sour Sleeplessness

Sweet sleep, evasive sleep I listen to sad songs for peace Memories of a full bed Of a warm body Gentle touches, genuine in the moment Now a jest, a jeer at jovialness The bed is cold, so I shy from it The apartment…

Anglorum

"Before the sea she stood, still as a statue but for the wind rippling in her loose lavender-grey dress and toying with her black hair - it billowed in the salty breath of the ocean like a flag of defiance."
