Rise Above Years have since come and gone When I childishly looked at the world - Then, age and realism dawned Causing my foolish heart to unfurl. A thirst to want to love and be loved, Was seemingly quenched And old ideas were proved wrong Lies poured and left me drenched. It would seem my… Continue reading Rise Above
I meant to write this ten days ago As a way to mark a year passed Since the day you said I had to go - How this year has gone so fast. That day came and went - And so did more days Without the memory's torment Part of me is amazed… … Continue reading Hidden Strength
Why Am I Here?
Looking in the silvery mirror As if I were asking a seer - Squinting to look clearer Whispering, "Why am I here?" Keeping my gaze locked on myself, Haunted memories flood my mind… Heartbeat quickens, overwhelmed. Clenching my jaw, teeth grind. Far too many reasons to quit, Countless struggles to remember - Lies… Continue reading Why Am I Here?
Escaping deep inside my mind, Unsure of what will be uncovered - What secrets I might find Or if who I was can be recovered? The tears that have run deep Is not simply because of you - There's a bigger reason why I weep, I forgot who I was - the person I… Continue reading Vapor
Yes, I took my time moving on, Telling everyone I was taking it slow - Countless boxes piled high, Scared of what I'd find inside. Memories buried in the dark - Hoping they stay where they're parked, God, don't let them rush into my mind - I want to leave all that far behind.… Continue reading Memories

I remember being in my own little world while I picked out which tomatoes had spoiled and overhearing a co-worker saying how she didn't understand why her… Continue reading In Awe Of My Ancestors

I wanted to throw you guys out some warnings. This particular post is in response to the #DearDepression tag that was written to encourage awareness for… Continue reading The Graveyard
I The cave is so deep and dark, I don't know where to start. How do I get out of here? Faint sound of a screech - Screeching, Screeching - What's that sound over there? II Curiosity will be the death of me, Loud and splits the ears, what could it be? Light from its… Continue reading The Light
I Go Back
Music tickles my ear Gentle like a soft feather Memories start to appear All my years, coming together. Life so long ago, lost to the wind Trying to hold on to sixteen. Time has other plans as it sends Me to scene after scene. Heartache after my first loss. Wind in my hair,… Continue reading I Go Back
Dear Mama, It's been nearly 20 years since I've heard your voice or spoken to you. Yet, through a random prompt on the internet I stumbled upon today, I'm writing you a letter. There are a lot of "somethings" I wish I could tell you and questions to ask you. If you could see… Continue reading Dear Mom
