The Sad Owl

I'm just here. Until I'm not.

One Lonely Cigarette

Have you ever seen a cartoon? A red headlamp under the moon? The small orange at the end of a cigarette? Like the smokey cloud of text defining a thought that spells regret Flowing aptly in the quiet of cricket chirps by a lake Imagination in place of the memories […]

All of the Stars

My heart fell deeply Into an abyssal drop Kettle with an abysmal top Boils over With no one left to hold the warmness of all I am up Hold my hands together, to pray and just for what Cold inside my chest, I rub vigorously at a hollow cage Warm […]

Blossom

In amity, to hold on with longanimity Light pink turns red A clear tear can appear blue  A bright fire can turn to sapphire Cold and without feeling Stay with me, I can’t believe the past becomes reality While I remain presently in disbelief A heavy sigh with no retake […]

Bed Head

Before the clouds grow black They are gray Before the sun shines, to bask in the moon With starry eyes and heavy lids Dreams of what no longer is  Throbbing in my shoulder Locking of my knee Weakness in my wrist All the injuries of my youth I can feel […]

Loves me Not (part 3)

It’s all the things you don’t say that sometimes seem to be screaming at me blatantly  That make me think you fancy me or that I simply have thought complacently  Erasing me  Would be okay I could look the other way Even if somewhere inside I’d had hoped you asked […]

Loves me Not (part 2)

Why was it that as my life grew happier, fuller, fulfilled and answered for That I thought to question about you Inquiries of a random passing by conversation  Of no relation to my bountiful inundation  Made me want to swim back to the surface A breath of fresh air that […]

Loves Me Not (part 1)

Unsullied and unbiased  Folly for eyes so often in the ground Meeting their earthy gaze and sparkle Plant seeds in my mind Flowering the long stems of your eyelashes Batting like you might fly away  The small mole, a black hole  Hiding right beneath your chin I could swear sometimes […]
