Father’s Storm

I wish this day away just like the many before it. No matter how high the sun, that cloud will forever rain on me. As I try to move on, the shadows creep alongside teasing a dark void. My unhealed scars, they fester… Read More

Someday Again

Fist held against your chin staring beyond, adrift in recollection. A ponder of well-being was the focus of those faraway eyes. Rock…rock until contentment, unbroken ritual. You miss, you worry, because you loved. The tittle-tattle of your kindred always spawned a glow… Read More

One Ray of Sun

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… Read More
