“Mommy, where do people come from?” “Little girls and boys come from their Mommies and Daddies.” “Okay, but where do Mommies and Daddies come from?” “From Grandpapas and Grandmamas. It’s bedtime, Danna. I’ll tell you more tomorrow. Sweet dreams.” “Mommy… I really wanna know where people come from. Please please.” “Oh my gosh… Seriously Danna? […]


You are… Still my Summer’s wish. And yes, you mean everything You believed you did, To me. You are… Still so wondrous. A practical deity, You are my Goddess, And this is a promise I don’t make so thoughtlessly. Daily, I visit your temple. Nightly, I reminisce. May these confessions reveal to you Who I […]

Akoya Desire

We could have another good time. My private pearl, Forever under pressure… The day that I learned You exist, I lost all willingness To resist. And everything I want to give, I truly do. We could have another good time; These incantations Guide my dreams to you. This taste in my mouth Won’t wash away […]


Don’t grind me down. Don’t leave me to the fire. Don’t feed me to the feral beasts Among the frosted pines. When we rise, There is no mistaking The joyful sound Of these Cold bones shaking, With every step The old bones take In the last round They’ll be making. Don’t blast me into A […]


It is not of this world. It is not promised in the next. Should you find it anywhere Inactive, and dim, It is hardly a fixture you’d notice. It is not lost to time. As of yet, it has not been built. But yes, it is old Yes, it is real And its power will […]

When I was a kid, I didn’t get it. I shook my head. My eyes rolled. To me, it was cynicism. The pathetic words of another feeble heart, Giving in too soon. “Sometimes love just isn’t enough.” Who could be so jaded, they start believing It’s true? Now, I guess that depends On what you’re […]


So pretty. She could shut down the city. With one step, She’s stolen a breath Too many. Not to be taken with superficial beauty, Of which there is a bounty In this world. No, the thing about this girl, Is that her eyes dance the spelling Of a too-tall tale, Corroborated by lonesome lips. As […]


Distractions, manipulations. Conditional love. I’ve recognized each blessing As it stares me In the face. But there was no hope To slow This emotional entropy. No amount Of appreciation, No chorus Of exaltation, Can stay the Master’s Hand, And stop time. I am more ready than ever For absolution. Mouth it. Say it. “Absolution.” Feels […]

I Felt It

I had a strange dream… That I awoke In a dark room, Only multi-colored string lights Tossed about the floor And draped over every Wooden fixture. Your eyes reflected the Warm blues, and candy reds… When you told me you loved me And you meant it. I had heard that this peace Was a myth, […]
