his eyes

It was his eyes, They told the story. It wasn't his restless heart Or his tapping fingertips. He wanted a friend. A ready-made bed To collapse on, to rest. "How does life do it? To arrest ourselves?" "It's unpredictable." "And that's all we can count on."

happy birthday to you

To one of the greatest people in my life, Happy birthday to you. I see you all the time, Of a photograph given to me, On the day we celebrated your life. The moments you touched us. The memories we continue to carry I'll remember you For what you stood for. One of a kind, [...]

walls of perception

structured lines, constructed precious, sacred boundaries. breaking into the wall of perceptions. multiverse lives of here and now. karma record logs reversed and entangled. meaning and fulfillment redefined souls silently fuel the chaos*, calmness loudly carries our will. *science definition of chaos

capturing light

Capturing is such a savage word. Like taking a prisoner without freedom. But capturing light is unlike its sound. It's more like setting oneself free. I ended up printing this out for my dad and it came out gorgeously. I know I'm biased since he's my dad, but wow, it's one of the prettiest things [...]

love slowly

we held onto each other, spun around and around in a circle, eyes locked, hearing no sound. like seagulls flying, watching from below, an outer body experience time moved very slow. love isn't clean, there are no set rules, a trusting heart fulfills no need for any jewels.

potential and cause

I came upon this cabin, Messy, dirty and small. I wanted to stay in, Fix and clean it all. The dishes put away, The floor had a sweep. Comfy bed made Good enough to sleep. Walked around a bit, Saw how different it was. Like a candle finally lit, Seeing potential and cause.

dearest moon

Many a nights you were the only one awake, While sleeping eyes wander in dreamy lands, You arrived on time as the sun takes its break. Long night drives can be so deceiving, Sometimes calmness prevails, but other times... It means getting lost without any meaning. But regardless of whichever it is, Your presence means [...]

distracted

Clearing the mind is easier said than done. Like sweeping the rug for every little crumb. Thoughts pour out of me like waterfalls of Niagara. Who said what to who? Was it Sean, Brian, Lee or Sarah? Sorry, I can't focus on this conversation of how life's unfair. May we take a drive, get a [...]

me, as a kid

Playing with mud during rainfall, Laughter ensues as gutters overflow. Rollerblading with sizes too big, Riding bicycles without hands. Fallen on concrete floors with scraped knees Heals with time moving slowly. And then a golden retriever runs after you. Your scared heart locks for a few seconds. Don't panic, it's okay. You love dogs now. [...]

a forever bond

I want to hold her hand, Like she has mine. Walk her to her favorite place, Disregarding the lack of time. Series of film trigger memories Of places I've never seen. To learn of my guardian And her life as early as a teen. She defended me and my honor, Even when I didn't understand [...]

shaky waters

Captive rivers tip over from glassy exteriors, Breakable to wreckage from broken coal ships, Glaciers sail through unwanted temperatures. Swimming alone through tides coming in, Are flocks of sea creatures without habitats. Lands become open water ocean views As foundations break in thousands of pieces. Rafts and safety vests thrown in the ring, As we [...]

feeling sick

Hoping the bug will break away, From the fragile body that is my vessel. Distance spreads farther from body and mind. Desire for one and another consumes me. Rest and numbness battles hard against Defenses of the active mind to work and play. The poison works well to defeat me; Short periods of in-between strength. [...]
