    I had a dream, which was not all a dream.

    The bright sun was extinguish'd, and the stars Did wander darkling in the eternal space, Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air; Morn came and went—and came, and brought no day, And men forgot their passions in the dread Of this...

    CANCER Cancer came like a monster,

    To settle in and feast. I tried to fight it with my sword, Just to kill the beast. Great care it takes to fight the beast, And certainly great skill. It tries to make you think it’s dead, By lying quiet and still. It moves around and hides away, Like a thief into the...

    MORNING THOUGHTS I woke up early

    once again, The dreams had been too deep. The darkness surrounds me like a glove. The sun was still asleep. The morning air was damp and cool. The grass was wet with dew. I sat and drank my morning Joe, But my thoughts were those of you. This time of day is always quiet...

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...

    “Play something”,

    you said looking anywhere but eye to eye feigning a casualness to the request. The truth was it wasn’t casual The quiet seemed almost to make the walls fall away Giving too much running room to fears about ourselves grown large and feral and rageful at their entrapment...

    Porcelain Moon Smooth my scabbed back,

    Deeper Stranger.

    Deeper Stranger. My heart is as deep as the Hudson River. Its fresh with unpredictable currents. Once a murky barren zone is now the object of a mid summers swim. My mind is a twisted Christmas peppermint stick. Its stale and forgotten in your grandmothers garage, along with...

    Mosaic

    Broken pieces, shattered all around We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground Torn pages, in the book of my life In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight Empty spaces, covered in clutter My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters I see the places, where the...

    The night outgrown has a charming awkwardness.

    Tumbling words, fumbling hands, breath caught in the very top of the chest and held like the escaping air would banish the moment forever. The night outgrown has a low babble to it. Rasping friction, oxygen exploding in candle flames quick bursts of motion traveling along...

    Waking up in the morning, another day dawns, I rush to my computer, I flip the cold box on. As it's familiar sounds start, Time to pour a cup, I rush back to sign on, To see if he's already up. The "Sign In" is complete, Today begins anew, I gesture "Good Morning...

    Poetry is how we say to the world,

    and to each other, "I am here." I talk about poetry as a way to document the world and our common experiences, to say what needs to be said in a direct, powerful and beautiful way.

    Pain In These Eyes

    When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything. You see emotions and their journey. Their heartbreaks and their fears. Their memories, maybe even eternity. Now, look into my eyes, And tell me what you see. Can you see the darkness, That lives deep within me? Can you...

    The sky is dark and hazy.
