Poem – “Which Direction is Right?” – Modern Romanticism – 1/25/2022

Off track,behind the timesof everyone else's smiles. Fill me with blue,remind me of the sea.Elevate me with the moonwhile the sun goes to sleep.I can run around,toss aroundwhile the earth jogs its mile. Into November,where eyes can rememberthe speech that told a patternin the leaves.The fallen, scattered.As those swept withinwere against the grain,were sun-blocked,were in… Continue reading Poem – “Which Direction is Right?” – Modern Romanticism – 1/25/2022

Philosophy – “A Theory on the Holiday Blues” – 12/24/2021

"What a person most expects is everything they shouldn't. A gift can be expected, though only at the same level as offering a server a tip. It had been expected, that for the server's excellent hospitality, they were given something for that reason. Although, what is a gift? What is ever defined as a true… Continue reading Philosophy – “A Theory on the Holiday Blues” – 12/24/2021

Poem – “Saddest of all Oceans” – Modern Romanticism – 12/10/2021

Reversed water sweeping your tears back beneath, back to sleep. Oh, how I incline to recline your form upon deserts, to take the stones where you lost raindrops. Bold in the dark, raven atop the waters. Your tears, a curtain. Your fingers, bars to a sideways cage. Uncounted scars, same with stars, gleaming as gunshot… Continue reading Poem – “Saddest of all Oceans” – Modern Romanticism – 12/10/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 17/25 – “Hope’s Hopeful Withdraw” – 11/2/2021

You were to beEverything, upon a closed eye. Raining the fog in the remembranceTo two shut windows,Closing for frost's awakening. You slumber in the nothingTo a heart that skipsAs a stone upon the old lakes. A worried vision,A sealed encasement, where waterWas never the entrance,Never the griefThat wanders within puddles,Never seeing reflection. Listening to vibrations,The… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 17/25 – “Hope’s Hopeful Withdraw” – 11/2/2021

Poem – “Intimate Sadness” – Love Poetry – 10/28/2021

To the dark part ofA heart that never forgivesItself, to belong uponThe light side. To the spark that never drainsFrom the memories, from distant kisses.When the wound heals,Will I ever remember you? Your eyes fell to ruin,Your breath shattered withYour lungs that took my wordsTo heart. Your glance fell short,While I scooped up the dirtTo… Continue reading Poem – “Intimate Sadness” – Love Poetry – 10/28/2021

Poetry Series – “For Autumn Rainfalls” – 2/50 – “Sense of Crying” – 10/18/2021

SlippingOn puddles made fromShades, further inThe loss of a sane self.Sense of selfTo the waters that bleedFrom dry wells. WadingIn the tear-stained moment.A film, a droplet,A occurrence that did not occurExcept for deep within.The shadows kiss,Bleed to protect their kin. RunningFrom the porcelain sounds,The immaculate praises,Inborn promisesTo love, while death wins its prize. She gained… Continue reading Poetry Series – “For Autumn Rainfalls” – 2/50 – “Sense of Crying” – 10/18/2021

Poetry Series – “For Autumn Rainfalls” – 1/50 – “Tears don’t Fall” – 10/18/2021

Weak beneathWhere glassWears itself thinIn dark reflection.A mind that finds easy meaningIn decaying truth,In hands that pull backFrom the stem of a thorn,From the red of a rose. I keep what is painful upon drunken times,Weeping in shadowed pillows.Find me,I will be near and nowhere.I will be wilting in the bathtubCleaning stains,The memories that are… Continue reading Poetry Series – “For Autumn Rainfalls” – 1/50 – “Tears don’t Fall” – 10/18/2021

Grief Quote – “The Meaning to ‘Peace be with you'” – 6/25/2021

"It is grief that stains the living soul. It is not peace with the bereaved, since it is peace with the dead. Those who grieve are in pain, because they wish to be with the dead. To recover from this, reverse the wish to be with them, to the understanding that the dead live on… Continue reading Grief Quote – “The Meaning to ‘Peace be with you'” – 6/25/2021

Poem – “To Remind the Self” – Romanticism – 6/18/2021

For fewest glimpsesFor tears that strayAside, for the life of mineThat bleeds a dewdrop too heavyFrom hanging eyelids. For a little warmthFrom a glass that shot meOn the crossroads, of painstakingLife in the fragile glimpseThrough reflection uponLost warmth,Drowned in circles - Upon eyesThat wept for the sunrise,Fell for the settingTo another deceased day. Another drunken… Continue reading Poem – “To Remind the Self” – Romanticism – 6/18/2021

Short Prose – 250 Words – “Height of Her Burial” – Love Story – 6/15/2021

Still-life. A stilled life. He weeps to form a garden made from her debris. He weeps, and he cannot even leave. He weeps the funeral back into togetherness, to the final time in being the blank witness to a sunshine that distanced itself so well. It was the final time to view the light, even… Continue reading Short Prose – 250 Words – “Height of Her Burial” – Love Story – 6/15/2021

Poem – “Among Velvet Ruins” – Romanticism – 6/6/2021

Show your symptomsFor your faint disregardTo what is stagedAs the props upon the lake,Washed in velvet tears,A material to soakAll of nothing. Sadness reusesBleak waters that crawlTo your knees, given bentTo another source of devotion,With the submissionThat leaves you to drainYour discolored eyes. The sun never warmed you,With it at your back,With heaviness for all… Continue reading Poem – “Among Velvet Ruins” – Romanticism – 6/6/2021

Poem – “To a Heart you Ignore” – Romanticism – 6/3/2021

Tame the positionOf one beast who bottledHis sunshine in the hourglass,While time kept us frozenTo observe the past. You were to the worldAll it aimed to ignore,All death desiredTo give birth to,Upon the murky shore. You liveTo keep singingYour pain, for the wildernessWhere isolation grows heaviestUpon leaves made of your disease. Why choose to forget?Why… Continue reading Poem – “To a Heart you Ignore” – Romanticism – 6/3/2021
