    THE CLOUDS OF MY TEARS The clouds; like wafts

    of cotton candy move across my world view: the sliding door/window of my balcony. Their water bound bodies keep them tethered near the ground. Still, they seem fleet for heavy hearted clouds; they move quickly, as though they have an appointment with something special.

    The Meaning Of Life

    We had to do poetry journals in 7th grade,

    and half my poems were about not knowing what to write about. Then there was one about popcorn, one about poems (both were concrete poems), and one about a hamburger (based on Jabberwocky). There were also other weird ones, but I don't remember one.

    My Thoughts On Love.

    Sometimes When it feels Like Love It really Isn't. It may be Caring. It may Just be an Illusion. Delusion. I think It's only Real When it is Shared. Decided. It's not an Emotion. It is a choice. There is no Falling Fireworks You choose It .... Or not. :)

    What we glimpse when our hearts are true.

    The supposed winnings of the battles that we humans face on earth. What we seek. What we crave. What we embrace. What only God can grant. A moment of silence and a day of rest.

    In the dark. Your narrowed eyes on me. I feel you back there. In the fog. Casually pulsating with warning. You're just biding your time. Waiting for your chance to dominate and lay me low.
