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 […]

Ocherous flame dances the same Flicker and untamed, gentle crackles, call a name Myrrh scented candles illuminate the room One last time always seems to soon Auburn hair burned wildly here Memories of a yesteryear  When they all finally burn out So too will my heart melt like the wax […]

Slow Dance

A nervous mess In the wake of what is To finally meet you Feet growing cold Runaway with my heart Not so bold After all, spreading cold fingers apart In my mind I dance with you to warm up For what feels like the finish of a wait  Is just […]

Life Happens

The distance grows further With every word untouched Your tongue used to transfer to mine Everything you ever worried about Sharing your grief, the sorrow All goodnights and see you tomorrow But the sun is up And perhaps we have given Far too much to simply walk away A decision […]
