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

They say the way a person leaves your life tells you everything, but I disagree. The way a person breathes as they leave you in a tormented hell Tells you more. The way that the words spill from their lips like a waterfall of deceitfulness, with no pause in their person because the pain they’ve…

Victorious

tonight you watch her her snake-like sway has you mesmerized and all too willing you step inside. this game she’s winning, she already knows all it took was a quiet ‘hello’. she twirls around, your biggest weakness, she closes in your heart stops beating. her lips mere inches your eyes blown wide endorphins running no…

Poetic Waltz

I think in poetry Breathe in Verse Live in Passion Feel in Silk See in Rhyme Taste in Emotions Smell in Universe I listen with my eyes closed because while rhyme can be seen it should be felt with each cell of the body, as the emotions take its hand they sway in a silk-like…

Thoughts and Things

and then the night came in snow and things and then the stars came out bright as rings decorating the night sky with their thoughts and gleam illuminating my dark thoughts with my hopes and dreams every night the same things thoughts dark like matter every morning the same dreams mind out the gutter living…

Satisfied

her fingers glide over the skin of my hands as she traces the path to my beating chest nails grazing the sensitive skin scared to leave a mark on the already scorned skin bright red and scorching hot. the path she left left nothing but utter grief. her fingers glide throughout my hair and slowly…

like someone in love

Your heartbeat woke me up this morning, the thumping caressed my cheek slowly lullabying me back to sleep. I didn’t want to wake up, I never wanted to wake up. Your fingertips caressed me that afternoon, then your eyes chased my breath away. I never wanted to bathe in anything more beautiful then I did…
