"Is this forever?" I wondered, while eating a huge strawberry sundae with sprinkles on top I didn't finish. Collecting marbles Filling a neverending Glass jar with every Color swirl combination Imaginable, carrying A piece of hope in each. Sipping on sweet Lemonade on dry summers Intrigued by the notion Of ever understanding Life's eternal limbo [...]
no other love from nature, do we ever feel full. no other love makes acceptance as easy as breathing. people make love hard between pillars of expectations standards listed on walls. the imaginary unconditional is always conditioned somehow.
bird chirps & squawks along with the morning sunrise looking left and right for another as their ally. a continuous hum of undefined squeaks and yells, "I am awake and I am here," i imagine him saying. with no fingers to text or dial phone numbers or type an email, birds communicate through their bodies; [...]
What lies between us is this voice, A loud hoarse cough that breathes ice, Onto my skin, I see goosebumps on my arm. It whispers into our ears of phantom cries for help. Paying mind means paying the fine and valuable time. More and more, the monster between us grew. If it wasn't me, it [...]
the steel words lingered in her breathe, poisoning tetanus crawled on open wounds her snake bite fouled the fallen have as she scoops up each soul-less being.
circumstances don't care who you are they drift in in any form they want to. it could disguise itself clothed in costume creating personas that never ever was. sneaking themselves into situations that never were intended for them. But it happens. They occur and there's no control. Lost at the head of the ship Steering [...]
it is courageous to speak honestly. inner clock ticks repeating patterns despite resistance. status quo bursts combusting walls broken barriers. relief and worry. new discoveries it is freeing to feel deeply.

the urge to go forth has never felt more real. the goals of tomorrow have never felt so close. maybe, it can happen. maybe, it will work.
it cost us very little to get you, my little one. we saw you on a whim on a mission to get something else. you came with four chairs, oh how lucky were we? the price was fitting for our little index card of a budget. and here you live with us, day in and [...]
the humidity is inescapable the love affair is strong wandering on connected roads eating fresh fruit off trees. and learning about my life. absorbing every bit of difference as sweat on my skin appear after my walk.
I take in moments Like I do sipping tea Or drinking wine. I let the taste linger A little bit to savor it. Fleeting this all is. I want to take it When it comes. Nothing lasts forever.
In our inner core, there is a light. For some, the brightness grows in time. For some, it becomes dim and dark. When the world outside of us, Become surrounded by dark clouds, Those with light will unite Guiding the very path we need to take. Just as love is in each of us, There [...]
Put down the umbrella you hold, The raindrops no longer fall upon you. Seen above like choreographed dancers Movements sync like robotic hipsters Until one fell over and dominoes clicked on. Each standing up into their own steps, Dancing to their own internal heartbeats. The drips and drops continue from the sky, But the dancers [...]
In my youth, you were my watch. I wore you every day on my sleeve. Knowing every moment I'd feel you. Until one day, I realized I didn't want it. It would tick day and night Alerting me of deadlines I wanted to forget. And here it lies, In the box of music, Full of [...]
