The Right Choice

She watched him walk out of her life and she knew it was for the best. It was never good even at its best. It wasn’t for a lack of trying. They were both too broken when they met. I guess they spent so much time trying to fix each other that they never saw…

Waiting for One Day

I am alone in this You look right at me but still don’t see me You look through me as if I don’t exist Yet here I stay Next to you Waiting for the day The day things will change You don’t listen to me You say you hear me But you’re not listening My…

Searching

Days to night I wait Always waiting Waiting for the right time The right time to move forward The right time to be happy Always looking for the next thing Minutes to hours Time runs from me I chase it Ignoring the present Ignoring the now Still searching Months to years Missing out on the…

I Saw You

I saw you and I knew you You didn’t see me I was like a ghost in the wind I held my breath and waited You didn’t see me The world spun around I held my breath and waited I wanted to speak The world spun around I felt dizzy I wanted to speak I…

Missing You, Missing Us

Can we pretend for a second? Can we pretend the universe is mistaken?  Can you look into my eyes and unmask the reasons for loving me? I miss your delicate whispers and compliments in my ears, the licks on my earlobes, the sighs of your love. I miss your subtle kisses through the screen, as…

First Heartbreak 2018

It’s a cruel scene, a tragedy to feel such a way, for a woman to experience a ruing pain. I’ve never felt so broken and betrayed, never sobbed so recklessly that my lungs could barely breathe. They asked about love and the meaning of it, and I truly believed I had it, that I was…

The Journey

The journey I begin I wander I walk I make this mine I find my words They are written among the stars I pluck them One By One Each word turns into a sentence The sentence turns into a paragraph The paragraph turns into a story The one you have before you The one that…

Where the Wind Takes You

I stand at the top of the trees From here I see everything I feel everything The touch of the rough bark scratching my skin The softness of the leaves brushing my cheek The air caressing my face The coolness of it relaxes the spirit Above me Birds whistle They sing High notes Low notes…

Do I Scare You

Do I scare you Like I scare me My reflection Mirrors Windows Puddle Staring at me Judging me Condemning me to my mind I live in chaos I embrace it Make it a part of me It coils around me Like ivy Growing from the ground up Wraps around me Mummifies me The chaos empties…

One More Day

It’s been a year since the last time I saw Ren. Time gets away from me sometimes. But the one thing that I always remember is my annual coffee date with Ren. Every year on the same day we meet up for coffee and a catch-up. This of course entails us reliving old memories and…

Sometimes

Sometimes I get lost I forget things I am forgotten Sometimes I can’t remember the day Or night Or week, month, year Sometimes I’m a mess Distracted A disaster waiting to happen To someone else of course I’ve already happened to myself Sometimes I can’t concentrate Interruptions Consume my life Cats, kids, husband One thing…

Rainbows

Why can’t I see rainbows And blue skies I want to walk in meadows And eat cotton candy I want to be light I want to be free I want to feel the joy that I hear life brings When my fingers touch the key board I want them to touch letters that create Happy…

Don’t Underestimate My Intelligence

People underestimate my intelligence. Scratch that. People don’t underestimate my intelligence, men do. I’m way smarter than I actually seem, and it’s a shame when you underestimate my intellect, my various capabilities. It might surprise you that I’m actually quite aware of your indiscretions and your ability to manipulate certain pieces of myself to make…

Find Me Without You

How do I keep getting so lost in you, that I lose me You can’t possibly know the sorrow I feel You don’t fully understand what I’m going through To feel so alone even when you’re around I am fighting all of it, struggling to break free I’m trapped in the sea Trapped in the…

The Shadow

The shadow reached out and grabbed her. She stood motionless. She knew what was happening but at the same time, she knew it couldn’t possibly be real. She could feel the fingers tighten their grip on her shoulders. She tried to turn her head but it seemed frozen. She needed to see. The fingers tightened…

Can You Hear Her?

There is this roar inside her body, a ghastly bellow inside her mind. And all she wants to do is listen to that rage and follow its howls, stand on the ledge of a ten story building and fucking scream. “AHHHHHHHH!” she shouts at the world, belts the wounds out into existence. It takes so…

I Weep

I weep… Sitting on the floor Knees pulled to my chest I weep Wondering where was God Is he still watching I weep Hoping for better days Not understanding the moment I weep The last touch of an unpleasant hand The torn clothes I weep The bright lights flashing The doctors all around me I…

This is For Charity

He’s leaning against the doorframe of the bathroom with a loose tie around his neck, rolling up his sleeves as if anticipating work. He watches my fingers seductively pull my tights up around my propped up leg on the edge of the bathtub, and I stroke the fabric once it reaches my mid-thigh, snapping the…
