    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...

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    so beautiful yet so cruel, so peaceful but full of raging wars. Every smile is led by a frown. In the darkness I see it. I see the peace. But when night turns to day. I’m just another person born upon a grave. Are we not all bid a due with the warm welcome of hello when we...

    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...

    She Lies Easy

    She lies easy in my arms This dimly moonlit night Her body supple to my charms She moans with such delight I brush her hair back, find her neck And kiss her softly there My lips they trace her gentle curves They make her arch and swear While fingers brush and pinch and...

    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...

    Stalking

    It never rightfully belonged to me But I wanted it nonetheless, So when you were distracted and couldn’t see I took it, I confess. I thought that it might take a while For you to realize your mistake, And though I felt guilty in my guile I held it close, for love’s sake...

    “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...

    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.

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.
