no shame

Don't we wear shame? Close tightly on our skin Suffocating our lungs Gripping onto our limbs Until we break away. Losing its power Gaining yours back Shame. Insecurities. Flaws. Humanity is everything; Imperfections and beauty.


life is permanent

The loneliness seeped under the door, The bed felt soft under my wings, Arms stretched like a snowy patch of land. My pink curtains swayed ever so lightly Like willow trees my cousin pointed out That young, windy,  July day. It was quiet in the car after the doors shut. The locks clicked in place [...]

age is just age

I think I wanted the easy answer. Scratch that, I definitely wanted the easy answer. The ease of feeling free without doing the work. To lift my spirits up without ever needing anything at all. Like when I was a child and time was frivolously spent, as it should, with childhood best friends, playing outside [...]

to escape not

I am whole

The door was left unclosed. The feeling of the isolation Crept in without a sound. My heart sank into an abyss Of ache and guilt. The intensity feels unshakeable. Its strong defense against My will to survive is one Worthy opponent. But my mind, however, beaten Recognizes my soul and hushes My confused heart. It [...]

Longing for a sense of stability I quiver at the next step. Surrendering my ground Could be the hardest thing I do. There are no lead tours Guides that can tell me all Facts and figures, history made Buildings to admire, food to eat. Instead, there is an unknown. A blank space that clouds over [...]

least resistance

the safety became unwanted destined to walk on edges freely sculpting the pavement my movements became automatic. living within the circular patterns of day and night, low and high tides taking turns and making their rounds for another rotation on the pinwheel. until a screw was thrown in, the wheels fumbled and the rhythm corrupted [...]
