A box filled with anguish landed in my palms today. Suppressed feelings of dreariness emerged and down the black hole I went, Spiraling down into obscurity. This cocoon of gloom never strays because it knows I never will. I may flirt with tranquility, fluttering my wings into communities of others who don’t feel like me, … Continue reading Numb.
I lie at your feet like a begging child. Hoping and praying that you’ll love me back. I scratch at your back door like a stray cat, Waiting for a morsel of affection. I unapologetically give my all… Imprudent and weak, Feeble like a branch And continuously in amazement of What you have the power … Continue reading Unapologetic
I lie next to you, watching your chest rise and fall with every shallow breath you take. You sleep soundly and peacefully, but I am paralyzed. My courage is rendered useless against my aching heart, beating only for you. I want the courage to walk, to run, to flee into the wind and taste the … Continue reading You.
I feel like I’m losing everything. I think despite everything that has happened within the last year or so, I’ve done pretty well with containing my emotions and not allowing it to stop my progress.

They sat on her front steps consumed by a loud quieting of emotions as the streets that lied before and beyond buzzed and roared with an excitement that escaped them.

The sight of you is now fuzzy and gray. It has disappeared in the restless fray, Beside you and my heart… Which are … Continue reading Echo
Our song came on this morning as I was getting dressed and it took me back. I relished the moment for a few seconds, but I decided not to give you the satisfaction. I don't want to go back. I don't want to feel nostalgic or feel remorse because truthfully, I'm perfectly happy where I … Continue reading My Heart
On the outside, I’m functioning. I walk, talk, breathe and speak like the rest of the people in this world, but on the inside, I’m curled up in a dark corner. I haven’t moved an inch from my rusting, dingy post since last fall, and every time I think I might’ve slayed the dragon within, … Continue reading 7:55
How do you all feel about church? Do you attend weekly, monthly, annually, or only on special holidays? Does going to church make you feel closer to God? Do you feel absolved of your sins when you go to church? I’m Seventh-Day Adventist and on Saturdays, we celebrate (?), maybe partake (I’ve never quite known … Continue reading Hmm…
There was once a time in my life When I thought you were the one. But I slowly began to realize That I was coming undone. Crumbling bit by narrowing bit.. Tumbling down your rabbit hole. You made me weak. You offered me a reality so shiny That in turn became bleak.. So bleak, it … Continue reading 8:36
