I saw the sunset blazing like fire. It was beautiful, with its warm reds, oranges, pinks, purples and blues.
Splashes of yellow here and there dancing like flames between burning logs as the clouds drifted by
The wind was biting, but somehow there was wa…Posted 6 years ago
My heart's been touched by many a gentle word
Of kindness and acceptance. Gentle folks
Have hastened to my aid, all undeterred
When I've had trouble; they've been strong as oaks
When I've been both exhausted, frail, and grieving.
To all my patient pals…Posted 6 years ago
A storm is coming. Hear the cold wind blow
What else approaches me with ill intent?
A fear is growing in me, fast, although
I cannot understand the fury's bent.
The fright builds quickly, but my mind is slow
To grasp its meaning, fighting through a h…Posted 6 years ago
I do believe the time has come to hope
I'd love it if my friend came back at last.
If I am wrong I'll wash my mouth with soap,
And banish expectation to the past,
But still, if I could nourish once again
The happiness that once was his and mine,

I'm one person.
So many people talk about how they're all smashed to pieces, losing bits of themselves, lamenting like Humpty Dumpty at their inability to be pieced back together. I've been that person, but as time passed I learned that it's not about di…Posted 6 years ago

How I scream
Louder I scream
When did I become this person
I tear myself apart
And lose the pieces along the way
There's no going back from here
But that's okay
How I don't know
But forward is the only way to go
The tears prickle, always ready

The grass is soft, tenderly kissing my feet
The air is sweet, warmly caressing my arms
Birds laugh and sing of bliss
Here I am, on my own
The sky is a brilliant blue and crystal clear
Rolling hills of multicolors stretch all around
Miles and miles pass b…Posted 6 years ago
Come on girl

Come on girl

Oswald hated cases like this. Common break-ins, unstable shoot-em ups in the living room; panic killings. Nothing interesting about them. The killer would hopefully succumb to their conscience and spare themselves the ordeal of the guilt.

I don’t want to be a hypocrite
Who gives theories as mentors
In place of the action I crave
But I’m scared
Of changing my routine
Doing some thing different right now
In this moment
I make good plans
Dream of perfect happy futures
Decide all the steps I…Posted 6 years ago
Months went by,
Since she left the only way of life she's ever known,
Simple life, hard life, workers' life,
City life she now knows.
Spruced up her wardrobe,
With 15 hour works days,
Not much better than before,
But the energy here- it keeps here alive.

In the dead of night,
She packed her bags,
Off to far away she went,
Without a sound - she's gone.
Hopped on her bike,
Which she rode for many year,
Old, tired, used and a bit wobbly,
On her way in a sea of stars in a dark sky.
She went for hours withou…Posted 6 years ago
There once was a girl,
Who loved her family,
To the depths of the ocean,
And to the top of the height mountains.
Content she was not,
In her life at the foot of a mountain,
And in a house at beachside,
Her heart longed for more.
Seclusion was not in h…Posted 6 years ago

The night I laid out my heart,
turned my life outside down,
Our relationship had a new start...
Best of friends for so many years,
been through so much together,
at some point, my heart - it interfered.
Patiently - you listened,
as I talked for hours,

You tell me to shine,
but as soon as I do-
all I hear is whine, whine, whine..
Tell me once and for all,
what you want me to do,
This request is small.
My hearts on the line,
and my mind is a racin',
Could you give me a sign?

"Then the two will become one..."
is what they say,
Now, love has won -
Insecurities and distrust is frayed.
Today you vow to God above,
To honor, to respect,
but most of all: to Love -
then never have anything else to regret.
Your Bride - the radiance,…Posted 6 years ago

These short nine years,
have gone by so fast,
Our lives intertwined by-
love and trust - so vast.
From boys to books,
our friendship never
dared to forsook
because it is forever.
As we grow old-

our lives separated,

I don’t know when I stopped
the daily painting of my face
On a Monday?
Maybe a Sunday
or some other day between
It could have been deliberate
an attempt to feel more proud
But it's most likely I was exhausted
and my teenage fears just weren’t as loud
