Greenhouse of Sentiment

She looks in among the rubble and crumbling rooftops Scanning far and wide Laying her soul down in soil  Open to the possibility of another Her roots have began to wither away No water to help her grow  She is restless Seeking a new place to call home This greenhouse of sentiment Has become her…

An Excerpt from Lilacs at Dawn

“The Hope We Sustain  Sometimes hope is like poison; it lingers in the body and mind, slowly breaking down all the things we want to keep sacred. It is bitter yet sweet. Hope is like the first kiss you have, waiting for it to mean something, only to realize that lips touching have never meant…

Exquisite Sins

Lingering on a path of righteousness Lost on the edge of uncertainty  Can we begin to contemplate redemption? How slowly does our hearts heal? When grace is considered weak, When way leads into way? Where our paths meet? Shall we overcome the undergrowth? Or walk on cobblestones to hell? Damnation comes in flavors Strawberry for…

Derange

Oceans rumbling on sacred ground Removed from the presence of sanctity  How far must one wander for the truth? To tomorrow? Lies fester on open wounds Like flies without a home Derange chaos gone to the wind Blinded by an idea In the event of happiness Where do I begin to hope? If madness is…

Abridged Tears

Blinded by the light of tomorrow I sow seeds of doubt  To gift to a stranger Continued without ending These are my tears  My fears of tomorrow I have waited by the bridge of no return Confused by a kiss that meant goodbye Here I lay, burdened by the light  And yet I still cling…

Phantom Speakeasy

She shook  For lack of emotion Had ejected her into reality  Tumbling  Falling from grace  The doubt grew  Flying with wings of uncertainty Never knowing what her purpose was  For the fear of falling She would fall Mercilessly  For the wrong person  On two occasions Once in her prime  And another when the world had…

“A King Without a Crown”

Streams of consciousness roll down my back Drifting by my illogical fallacies Undeterred by the obstacles in its path A conscious mind makes a move Changing the pattern of the game Fierce winds rule my soul Beating heart take hold I tremble in the face of the storm For the rain bares my mind to…

Crafted: Neither Bitter Nor Bold

In her hands and far from the eyes of mere mortal men  She crafts a friend  To begin again  Eyes of Jasper to see what the soul hides Ears of elm to listen to the wind  Lips of Sapphire, harsh words do not fade fast  A heart of silver, neither pure nor bitter  Legs of…

Only Silence

I wish to drift away  To float in the uncertainty of my state                          Yet there is only silence
