One step, And I forget it all. One step, And my whole body follows: Moving awkwardly, like a drowning llama. It doesn't matter. I close my eyes A smile on my face. Floundering around the floor In my mind's eye a picture of perfect grace Dances through my tight quarters. My muscles slowly relax, I... Continue Reading →


The hole inside, An empty scar Bleeding darkness. Maybe it's something you never used to see But it was always there. It's nothing new, has never healed. The difference between now and then, Is wearing the scar as a sign of pride. All that pain, All that sorrow I face head on. I have learned... Continue Reading →

Broken Hearts

Another broken heart. What have I done? Yet another person scarred Wounded. Forever damaged. By me. I don't understand. How could I have done that. I never meant to hurt him.

  One way out One way out I sat, waiting The door opened, I entered, Sitting, he spoke My family and then The questions One after another Some I answered Truth Yes, Yes, No, Yes, But then came the great lie. I was sure he would know My cheeks flushed red No I said I... Continue Reading →

The Phone Pole

The phone pole. Each day driving home, I see it. Standing tall, While I slump. Each day it tempts again: Escape, Freedom, Sweet peace. Each day I cry again: I can’t, What if, I fail? Terror within, Is not if I die, But if I don’t. I used to drive by this power pole on... Continue Reading →
