The Music in Your Scars

Words, lovely melody, pouring from your broken heart, Rising and lowering in pitch, perfectly tuned, as you walk the halls of a world uncertain. Lightning crashes, and the beat turns tempestuous, violent, unnerving, Yet the song never wavers. The vocals add a touch of gravity to match the situation. Shakily, steadily, emotionally gripping notes sour,... Continue Reading →

I Couldn’t Live Not Knowing

I couldn't live not knowing where the keys are, Where all the cups and plates are stored. I couldn't live not knowing where my wallet was, where my cellphone went, or where I can find the instructions for the new vacuum cleaner. I couldn't live not knowing where the new video game purchase, or two,... Continue Reading →

Love, eternal Flawless win over death. Hope, endearing and bright in the middle of the darkness. Lust, perennial mistress of heart's desire. Empathy, Bold, gracious and kind keeps these three at bay. Love, hope and lust wisely.

What I Like About You The Most

What I like about you the most is your friendly stare, The warmth of your embrace. The encouragement in your whispers. What I like about you the most is the passion in your speech, The many times you claim my heart, my mind and spirit by just being you, By fighting for a world that's... Continue Reading →
