Entangled we were; two simple threads in a faux fur.  If all we could see was gray then why didn’t we find another way? At best, what once was bliss quickly became a game of hit and miss.  Troubled nights lead into days of fright.  Shadows with our darkest desires plagued us with a needContinue reading

Haunted Waters

Dipping below the horizon, the sun’s last rays sliced the ocean into pieces, as though each beam were its own laser. She gazed upon the waves in the distance, imagining the reef teaming with hungry predators looking for a meal.  Temporarily distracted by the melody of crashing waves and sifting sand, the young widow approachedContinue reading “Haunted Waters”

I Will Be

When the world goes dark, and you search blindly with fear – I will be the light that shows you the way.  When the world goes still, and the grief is too much –  I will be the hug that you need the most.  When the world does nothing, and the rage is overwhelming –Continue reading “I Will Be”

Rosie

You came at a time I needed you most – small and perfect, it was hard not to boast.  Velvety brown fur with a patch of white – understanding eyes and always a delight.  My best friend, my sister, my baby –  Nearly thirteen years we’ve been together, with always the hope of more toContinue reading “Rosie”

Worldly Illusion

The world was once so accessible  and now it’s all in disarray.  Offensive, incorrect, and judgemental –  a few tones to the infamous melody.  What happened to respect? What happened to common courtesy? Are we all to be scrutinized for the remaining time we have? Must it all be a trigger to a larger dispute, Continue reading “Worldly Illusion”

Complicated Perfection

Overwhelming machines a worrisome screen –  none of us could’ve foreseen what was to change our routine.  Everything was so clean –  stainless with an eerie glean.  I felt myself growing lean between hospital cuisine  and little caffeine.  All we did was for our little bean, the pump, medicine, and saline.  Though the world seemedContinue reading “Complicated Perfection”

Love’s Curse

We weren’t once so diverse so long as we overlooked our births.  I used to believe I was cursed- unable to find that perfect verse.  Our melody was a rocker’s surge; passionate, powerful, and fierce.  But then things turned for the worse, and now you’re the one alone in a hearse.  © November 2015 byContinue reading “Love’s Curse”

Valley and Sky

The valley holds the secret to the sky of acheivement.  What possesses our finest  also houses our greatest fears.  A crystal ball of promise, life, and love.  An orb of misfits, deceit, and death.  But little do we know – the key isn’t to separate, but to find that fine line between valley and skyContinue reading “Valley and Sky”

Capsized Summer

And now the season’s changing – if only I could say our hearts have. What once was can no longer be – for you’ve all but buried me in the grave. Blue, purple, black and peach, the colors of my bruises sing. A melody of pain, love, and trouble – a true makings of aContinue reading “Capsized Summer”

Sneak Peek – Here and Now

The gulf stretches for an eternity, it’s careless waves licking the beach in a therapeutic motion. It was on the beach that he first kissed me, but also the very place he said he was leaving because he couldn’t do this anymore.  It’s not like ‘this’ was something I had wanted. California was the onlyContinue reading “Sneak Peek – Here and Now”
