    Transition: "It starts slow.

    The power within me swells into an overload and before I know it, I'm here. I'm alone but I like it this way. I find it easier to make the decisions I want with their voices in my ears. I look around and refurbish as I see fit. It is now my space again and they'll have to suck...

    Opposites being different crushing against

    this invisible wall between us, pretending that any hole we make will connect us as one.... an illusion it is, as our ways have shifted and our perception has morphed .... fading slowly the idealized laze flowing smoothly down the waterfall of broken dreams and platonic heroes...

    Mermaid

    I love the beauty of the sea Within its depth a part of me No better where I'd rather be The only place that I feel free. To breathe within its briny air To feel its breath blow back my hair At the blue horizon stare That is where you'll find me there. I hide within its shallow...

    The Damaged Tree

    .......To see a world in a grain of sand, to hold what falls in your hand. To know the future, but be surprised it takes place as long ago planned. Like an artist takes his tools out to paint. A long lonely walk he takes. Down the path through the holler. Up a hill, pass the...

    The Flower Show

    The dawn cues the show to start As my window curtains part. . To look upon the cast a story Amidst the purple morning glory. Seen below the morning star Sits rows and rows of lavendar. . A yellow dot with white clouds hazy A color script just for the daisy. A worm that pays the...

    Depression When you want to die

    but you're trying to be okay. You have no outlook on life, just trying to make it through the day. You act like your problems don't exist, instead you pretend they go away. Intrusive thoughts bring you back for a moment or two, looking for anything else for you to do. Anything...

    When I feel a little spark, I feed that flame until it's a forest fire Because I rather feel angry than numb. When I feel my heart crack And my eyes start to water, I let my heart shatter And let my eyes turn into waterfalls Because I'd rather feel hurt than numb. There is no...

    Lonely Tree

    Sometimes I wished I'd have toys, other years games. But I don't really remember when, I wished for a woman in my bed. Maybe when I was ringing groceries, into a laser eyed counter. Maybe the first time my car got stuck in a snowy patch in winter. But I remember the boughs of...
