Standing on the cold sidewalk of the city The lights of the buildings obscure the crowd Melinda’s door is open and I’m drawn in to the sounds of trumpets and pianos I walk into the foggy air of Melinda’s The air thick with cigar smoke and freshly poured Bourbon in glass with ice I unbutton my coat and hand it to the coat checker Go to the bar and ask for a cranberry...
Bare skin Cold toes Peeking out of the sheets at the end The air from the open window blows your burgundy curtains towards your dusty piano The soft light of the moon hits the cherry wood floor with sparkles and love The shape of the shadows on the ceiling remind me of that horror movie we once saw But my toes are cold under this blanket and I notice your not beside me anymore And I...
The Man From Behind
Water runs over the city like a blanket on a child and leaves you breathless if you step out of line the clear fogginess hits you in the back and travels up your spine with every shiver tie you coat just a little tighter and you hear yourself pant like a dog out of water the lamps don’t provide the right light so your eyes are already working overtime in the night You know you...
Never really thought that I would have to say something like this. It’s like 20 times a billion plus a trillion more. It hurts. We were always the ones who said “that’ll never be us. It cant.” But it can. And it is. And I tried to stop it. But it whizzed. On by like a speeding car at Daytona. What I don’t really understand is why you never took the blame for...

Sometimes I look at myself and look at where I am now in my life. I try to understand how I got there, but everything seems to go off in a blur now. When you look at yourself you are supposed to feel like you know how you got to that person in front of you. But I don’t. It’s not that I don’t know who I am, cause I do. I just don’t exactly know how it got there. How did I...
When everyone is pushing and shoving you to go this way or that, you seem to get very lost. But we need time to grieve. To mourn. And to love. We’re all just, a little freaked out. We go home, and we just want to know that there’s someone there. It all came as a surprise. A big hit, like a truck. And we didn’t know where to go. We need to tell them to stop pushing. Stop shoving. We need time. ...

A Billion Years From Midnight
There is a banging noise that I’m hearing. I’m laying here in the dark, and it’s sinister. I hate the dark. And I don’t hate a lot of things. I guess for me, I’ve been in the dark even when it was light. So for someone who has been in the literal dark they can still have and hold the figurative light. However, for someone who has felt the dark in literal light, the...
Nothing is so strong as gentleness and nothing is so gentle as real strength.
The moon is almost in arms length and I can stare while lying in bed. It seems as if time is slowed for a little, and the light just belongs to me. I like the light. The light the moon makes shining through my thin lace curtain and onto my jet black bed spread. My knees are propped up and I look at the light. I stare at the moon. I can touch it now. It’s like nothing I’ve ever felt....
