Quiet Storms

You don't need to speak before the echoes roll in here. You don't have to get drenched to know the raindrops are beating your skin Here, there is more to wind than the dust in eyes and falling trees. This one is a quiet storm. It's on the inside. You feel everything. You know everything.... Continue Reading →

A prayer

I have heartache... Every time I stop to think, I feel pangs in my chest. Sometimes I feel weaker than I am... I sense I can't handle life  with these two hands. These hands have built so little and yet, abandoned a lot. They've wiped many tears and written many fears. My hands have worked... Continue Reading →

The Woman at the Well

I'm desperate and wanting. Waiting and thinking. Dipping and fetching. Hungry and thirsting. Yet, it's not my first time. I've gone full circle. And I'm still searching. Man: Woman, you are thirsty!

Figments

Sometimes remembering is good Not what is remembered, but what you give your mind as food. I have memories that make me cringe- Memories I wish existed only in my head- Memories that say what I should’ve done instead. Like past tense All the flashbacks are gone Scripted and acted scenes that can’t be undone... Continue Reading →
