A hillside where I played, now lies dormant, unused. Laughter no longer carries in the wind where childish breath was once contrasted to the pitch night sky. The grass, still worn, but no longer from play for there is a gray hue of neglect that looms across its blades. This […]
Just one ray of sun can melt it all away, make it right, make it ok. Embrace like before with meaning and feel, something I forgot was actually once real. The static between can easily be gone, takes simply understanding, not brains nor brawn. Bring it back from where we left it in the dark. Let’s […]
How do you keep walking forward without wanting to look back? Your self-made contempt must justify it. My journey through hearsay. Birth to beyond being explained, while I’ve never been posed with a question. Imprisoned by pride with that broken conscience, do you get to stand trial for your faults? If excuse could no longer be […]
If you see me sometime and I don’t look your way, I beg your pardon, just not myself today. My smile is hidden, my laughter’s gone quiet. Contrast to normal, I mean not to try it.

His leg braced his posture while he watched the shoreline lap, his boat sits on a harbor of illusion until the ripples break away its silhouette. Our eyes to the horizon with the evening sky blushing back […]
I live, I breathe, but only to exist. My inner voice holding my hand, The silence from others is loud. Shouting quiet words to myself. Whispers catch in the static, going forever unheard. Life chases my soul to the finish line, Pieces keep falling away… catch them.
Yesterday was “me Wednesday”, the sun was shining, March was upon us and I saw a person with what I thought was dirt on their face. Actually, yesterday marked the first day of Lent (pun intended) where many people around the world went to mass. Specifically, Christians attend mass and receive ashes of burnt palm branches […]
