Vintage Love

Slowly the lights dimmed leading way to the star-like lights and the mosaic shades of NYC nightlife. Tonight she walks around her home hand in hand with you. Tonight she walks around her home with a new found passion for the unknowns, newly acquired need for adventure awoken by a lightning soft kiss filled with…

My Wings Have Arrived

I’ve been changing, different phases of the moon different faces, different chapter of my life changing phrases, slowly growing up with time I’m just waking, Shallow words slowly dripping from their mouth Just cascading, Their bad thoughts spinning round They just hating, I’m just chasing big bright dreams I’m just grateful. Grateful for everything, I’m…

Journey

  eyes closed sitting on the train reminiscing overthinking over analyzing the same thoughts that have been running within herself for as long as she’s been asleep. the feeling of the fleeting the joy of the night dimmed by the over-concentration of the never changing fact that it’s dead. back and forth darling, back and…

Gratitude

As the snow falls and the lights dim the stars hide behind the gray of the cloudy night sky. The moon rests upon a bed of water while the sun warms all of the south. because every year it snows and every year we get older every year we cry and every year gets a…

Silver and Gold

The silver sky is tranquil as it prepares to open up its soul and bless the many grounds and lands with natures food. Slowly, drip by drip drops of honeysuckle like rain fall out of its mouth and into the waiting arms of the patient trees and sleeping willows. Each drop filling in the faint…

Tells Me Everything

The Being

Little situations alter it all, the moods the feeling  the thoughts the being.  from sunrise to moonlight, dimming rays and lessening shades of two-tone emotional extortion on the off railed tracks of the one-way train with the two-way cart to the unknown route. destination? seeping blue sea filled with silence. filled to the brim till…

Savior

Cosmic Collision

He paints me every night, our own version of the starry night made out of my cries of passion and moon shaped scars of desire, softly connecting the swirling red galactic marks left on my body to create the constellation titled ‘devotion’. planet of two uninhabitable by all creators us two.   he sings to…
