As the moon resides above my head,
where it lives and has lived throughout existence.
It sends out an iridescent light that has found its way upon my bed.
It knows I have something that is alive, lyin...
One of my biggest struggles in life is doing too much. My passion has gotten me far in life but at times can turn into too much “stuff.”
The proper phrase that kids call it is “extra.”
And instead of ...
I must say
I did not see you coming
But suddenly there you were
And I felt kinda like a deer in headlights You made me smile, caused my heart to race
Compared to those around me
You were a breath of f...
it’s the more.
I always knew I was predestined for something great...
Then we hit the ground and everything changed...
Everything I knew...
Everything I grew up...
gliding across an empty abyss
like socks on the oak wood floors
I’ll find my way someday
but I wonder how far offshore
I couldn’t stop or turn away
even if I tried
because as far as I throw my sight
The spaces we enter are full of energy
Jumping, bouncing, floor to ceiling
And yet we stand firm, closed and grounded
Ignoring the electric movement of the unseen air
We turn our brains on and the hea...
i miss the gritty feeling of crappy hotel sheets,
lulling me back to sleep,
reminding me -
you did it, you escaped if only for a moment, a day, a week, but you did it. i miss looking out onto a street...
I've been running
Out of breath
Out of time
Out of sight
I try and hide For a brief second
Only to be reminded
Vibrations in the ground
My hide is on the line
I can hear him
There you sat gazing in my direction
I could feel eyes locked on me
My every move was being watched
Though judgment not the goal
The way my body in synch Swayed with the dreams direction
And you reach...
There is a dance held in the sky,
Too far beyond to hold, for I,
With my own ballerina’s limbs
Can’t imitate a Grecian nymph.
And though I pirouette and twirl,
I cannot fly above the world
The way Ter...
Months ago, I realized my son
would die, and the certainty left me weak
for days. A pit
in the lower-right of my abdomen, like a hole
where all truths must be born.
Whenever I have felt such certainty...
This life I've lived
Has been hard at times
Yet here I stand The ugliness is painful
It's pleasures cherished
Fond memories few
Kind to everyone
Close to no one
At times misunderstood
When you are as lonely as this, every month smells
of her skin. Choose one, any one—February, August,
like a vending machine, cards in a deck, you can never
come all the way back. The whole damn calen...
the miracle of existence is
how memory is made half
of things misremembered
my father in his childhood
danced the checkered land-
scape of his own intelligence
& anger & to hear him tell it
now you’d ...
choice after choice
in an ever-moving state
with the perpetual feeling
of an abstract dead weight
a glimmer of hope is revealed
but stays stagnant in the corner
As darkness seems to envelope your life
Let me be your Beacon
Your Beacon of Hope
Like ships are guided through storms
by a Lighthouse,
find my love, my loyalty,
while you weather...
A night so cold and quiet
The winter’s early dimming stills prematurely motion and need.
Left to one’s thoughts,
Surrounded by drafts from windows
Creaked open by new excited hands,
Throwing the long ...
