  • Not Distraught This Time

    I'm on the outside looking in. I see you inside, laughing, joy written on your face. The door is locked, but sometimes I can hear what you say inside.

  • Healing Wind (15/22)

    She tenses, starts to pull away, then relaxes. I'm still holding the towel around her injured hand, but I feel her left hand on the back of my neck. I must be doing something right.

  • Rapture and Fatigue--Director's Cut

    My heart has just burst

    With a pain most exquisite-

    Jumping on blisters


    O I am weary!

    My thoughts are eroding fast

    Let them sluice away,


    For they've disguised me.

    And show me myself


    How I've missed the truth
