    Tell Me How You Like It (and Be Honest!).

      An unnatural light hung over the familiar town of Lowur’s Valley. My skin prickled   with the strange feeling of a thousand eyes resting upon me. There was not a whisper to be heard, even the blacksmith’s shop was silent, a rare occurrence...

    Cobalt blue stained eyelids wrinkle,

    her cheek blurred as salt filled tears fall soaking one spot on her silky blouse that made her a lady. Her neck and chest flushed by the heat of emotion as desperation bellows from her core. Slouched like a child in a large brown arm chair, she gazes off lost in a familiar...

    Miserére Nos Dominus

    The weary sun this day does not rise  as the earth is rent in twain by a booming blare spawned from a sickly horn. Ragged hands wrapped in beads of Rosary scrape their way up the fleshy earth.   A man near the opened earth, of no religion does he ascribe who days ago did laugh...

    I always rebel a little inside

    when people go on about how we will remember someone only in fondness and joy, once the pain of the severing has waned. I don't love, feel or experience things one dimensional. When a deep emotional connection (or love) ends, and it was very painful, how could I possibly only...

    I think I just want to tell you to hold me.

    You don't have to say a word. You don't have to be emotionally here. I just need your physical presence. I think it could be anyone who could hold me and I'd beg you never to let go. I'm afraid the minute you release me, I might fall apart, permanently. You'd have to scoop me up...

    More than a Dance

    Who watched them? Only the birds glanced upon them not knowing what they saw. On the soft morning air music drifted quietly into the peace of their still place. Their place, a spot by his river. Trees stood  like still sentinels, surrounding the lovers. Sunshine, gentle, not...

    The sun was beginning it's descent.

    Writing Is My Stress Relief
