In the City

Thursday drive to see her againAugust rays, a hundred tenI was less distracted then–Heard from him, it’s been a whileLeave it behind just to see her smileIn my head, he’s at the top of the pile–Over-complicating mindAlone with her, left to unwindWhere are the words I’m bleeding to find–Unexpected guysAnd unexempted liesUninterested goodbyesBut I stillContinue reading “In the City”

September Sun

I should have locked it awayShould’ve closed my mouthShould’ve had more doubtsThan already filled my brainBut my heart’s too strongCarried me alongSent me laps around locked barsI could see right throughCouldn’t get to youSweaty palms and pounding heartsHow much longer hereLeft to drown in fear–I once was almost positive about you‘Til I tested positive forContinue reading “September Sun”

Prayer for Trust

I promised myself I’d rest in YouTrust is simple to the tongueBut easily spoken is easily brokenHeaven help me, I’m so youngSo clearly did I see that visionWhen the occasion took the leadHardly a moment ’til my soul followedAccelerating at gravity’s speedNot all desire leads to sinSometimes it’s sacred, Your designPainted to reveal Your plansMyContinue reading “Prayer for Trust”

Forty past midnightPhrases crowding my mindLike headlinesToo quick to catchI guess this is what they meanWhen they say sometimes it’s hardTo know your own feelingsI watch the dots circle aroundThoughts loadingEmotions frozenSince I saw you were onAnd I remembered words from the pastI was fine before you sent themAnd maybe I still am nowOr maybeContinue reading “Melancholic Mind”


I’m stepping out to take this – reality hasn’t called in a whileThese four walls know me too well, and I’ve been in denialHow true are words on a screen when you can’t see the other side?Unmasking the precious ‘connection’ reveals a greater divideI’ve been in love with fantasies that might be true in partButContinue reading “Treadmill”

Broken Branches

Left. Dirt collects in the ridge of my soleRight. I breathe in as my heel hits the groundLeft. One pace further from the desolate messRight. One pace closer to turning aroundLeft. What I did just as conflict crept inRight. What I thought I was, flaunting my prideLeft. But the beat of my feet on theContinue reading “Broken Branches”
