Rearview Mirror

Will it forever be this way? Me, driving down these same old roads at night, my white blue lights shinning in the darkness and in the rearview mirror your lights shining behind me? It is only by chance, I know, you are not interested in chasing me but I am becoming dependent on seeing you…

Ripped

I wish I could live life ripped in pieces, then I would be the real me. A mosaic of ripped flesh and exposed bone casually walking down the street. If you rip away my smile, a sour pout will be behind it, rip the laughter along with it, there appear the incoherent sobs. Rip that…

Life’s Roadmaps

Three seconds old your first breath cold and sterile the hands that touch you are covered in latex; in a naked cry you came into the world. Five years old your worries are simple; your favorite color, the playground swings at recess, the monsters hidden in your closet, under your bed. Now you are thirteen,…

The Days

The days run over me like horses… and I wonder if my life will ever change, if the love that I seek will ever find me if my heart will ever be filled again. Their strong and robust legs kick me… and realization kicks in: I may forever travel like a lost soul around the…

If Only

If only it was like before Simple, easy, natural It was like breathing Something that came by instinct. If only it was like once ago So much happiness and love Our thoughts could be shared without penalty Our minds were always the same. A fog has fallen over our love, It swallowed it made it…

A Beginning

A sunset, the ending of a lifetime of memories. A sunrise, the beginning of newborn experiences. Life is a cycle of never-ending events.

Come Solitude

Come solitude sit by my side I don’t want to be alone any more. Be my guest take a seat let’s look at the stars and listen to some music. Come solitude and be my crying shoulder for I have no one else to cry on. The rain has the earth to fall on but…

Two Worlds

A fight between peace and war, a struggle between the rich and the poor. An ocean of blood shed because of stupid decisions and an irreparable crash of morality. The sun turns to black in their world but in ours it shines like gold. We close out all the windows to the outside and open…

An Old Abandoned Road

I am an old abandoned road weathered down a once very popular street now my face is corroded. The many waters have marked my path my lustrous asphalt has given way to muddy underlining my way is rugged and unsafe. I am an old abandoned road I do not have the pleasure of feeling glistening…

In The Sands

Once in time a blooming lady I was you were the soil that made me grow that fed me the true experiences of life that took my innocence like taking breath and opened my mind. You reached me as an ocean current, strong and swift I was enveloped in you power, your controlling arms, drowned…

That Feeling

I won’t say that I miss him but I will admit that I miss that feeling; the one that made me feel alive and full of joy the feeling that kept me thinking of the one I loved all day long. I could feel butterflies rain on my fingers their wings would paint my skin…

Where The Gardenias Grow

When I was younger I dreamt of a special place. A place like no other, every night I dreamt it. It was a place full of happiness it was a place where I always found love. I remember closing my eyes and immediately feeling the coolness of the air and breathe and fill my lungs…
