Poem – “An Ocean for Two” – Love Poetry – 5/21/2022

A droplet of youupon our lips.One ocean for two,for four handsthat never slip. Not once, to leave ourselvesburied as sleeping fossils.Not one time, to bewith frozen faces that findour leaves, turned to conceala singular invitation to love,where eyes go blind. Limbs fall as ropes,mouths run with a taste.Our naked skin upon smiles,crossing rapid storms,missing corners. […]

Poem – “Some Seed you Left” – Modern Romanticism – 12/4/2021

Water at the field,while eyes scream their sentiment. I can breathe,force the wind against you,while your lids liftas shutters from the winter storm. You are worn in my weather,bleeding from remaining tulipsas the petals have driedwith frost upon your lips. Final form, branded togetherin the song of defeat.Held close, at our feetare the roots that […]

Tend to the grassThat burns, within the forest pass,Upon the road that floodsOur thoughts covered in glass.Mirrors against where Heaven stood,Next to fall at the pinnacle – To an ocean, shredded of debacle.With stains against snow-touched cheeks,Presenting symptoms to the bleak. Here, the eyes have withdrawnFrom the sun’s rise at dawn.

Poem #1,759 – “How many Women?” – Romanticism – 8/25/2021

How many womenBreathed fire through their lips?How many womenCusped water before the drought?How many womenWept for the sullen forest,Whether or notThe waters would raise enough? How many womenSpoke of sadness at the end,Wrote letters to be sentTowards crippled shores?

Poetry Series – “Autumn in the Skies” – 16/50 – “Endearing Thorn for a Soft Smile” – 8/23/2021

A sister’s hand reaches forThe loneliest pick of a feather.One forlorn smile among a thousand breezesShifting the currents, extending the eyes.As all was the wave crashing downIn the defeated heart where thunder ceases.A sister’s hand reaching for softness,Weeping for the mirror, a reflection’s weariness. Her eyes carve the daggers for the sight,While her talons are […]

Poem #1,758 – “Weeping over Rooftops” – Romanticism – 8/20/2021

While trickles find a wayTo lakes, and beyondTo the tunnels that bend awayFrom the faces that move on.For winter that never leavesThese arms in the dust,Places upon journeys astray – From the final gatheringAs tears spill from the moon,Leaving petals against the gloom.To the storms, come breathing –

Poem #1,757 – “A Will to Keep you” – Romanticism – 8/20/2021

How will the fog come to clearWhen these arms take free the north,Breaking the shadows against you, here?Love caresses the midnight, sereneIn the open mouthsBreathing kisses down throats,Walking in the slowness of glaciers,Weeping in the arms of the other. Some smile came to save you,Some man in his pockets to take you,While faces were forever […]

Poetry Series – “Autumn in the Skies” – 15/50 – “A Breath for the Sails” – 8/20/2021

I fumble the lane,Waiting as I cry the path onward.When the smile keeps me sane,Keeps tears from carving this faceInto something less than recognizable,Captivation rains a scenery upwards.I lose the value inEverything displayed within – Before the uncovered shoreCould gift me with a song at morning.Before tempting silenceOverruns me towards tonight,I can halt these hands […]

Journey ahead nine feet acrossThe tenth of a mile at a loss,While the buckles fall free from your shoes,As a sailor passes his life to the noose.Sing for the siren’s gambit – Falling into the emptiest hemispheres.While each for the eyes becomes frozenIn the other’s depleting stare.Falling during the last ray of sunshineDuring the days […]

Short Story – “The Empty Prodigy” – 7,000 Words – Unedited

I Colors will drain from the open wound. Upon the carpet, upon the spaces where sunlight brought in from open windows is shown warmest, as these marks are left without memory for why or when they were applied. They just were, because colors can be left behind. Color-blinded, some people are, though not ever blinded […]

Quote – “Why Men Die more than Women” – 6/29/2021

“Look at me,” says the man, continuing to speak from his heart, “I’m always fighting for what will one day fade, always holding onto what will one day pass between my fingers. Why do I do this?” It was his mentor he spoke to, also his friend, also the one who is dying before him. […]
