Cozy Spirit

The scent of fresh brewed coffee. The sound of a light drizzle tapping on the window. The feel of the worn pages of a book I’ve read many times. This is when the cozy spirit comes to haunt. Like a large, quilted blanket that your grandmother would own. A bit scratchy. But I still wrap... Continue Reading →

Shattered

Tears streaming down my face. Not sure how to even speak. Fists balled up. I just want to wake. This can't be happening. Not to me. Not to us. Us against the world I scream. As you step behind enemy lines. Shattered pieces don't fit together. You took just enough to leave holes in my... Continue Reading →

Sanctuary 

Like an umbrella over my head when it rains. The sunshine that shines through the clouds. A warm blanket around me when I’m feeling down. A sanctuary of calm and comfort. You’re always there when I need you most. A strong foundation when the world feels the most unstable. I come to you and we... Continue Reading →

Autumn Beckons

The gentle breeze. I find that it uplifts me. The calming presence of Autumn air. Matches my long scarf and light jacket. It’s almost like the season beckons me.  “Hear the leaves crunch underneath your feet. Jubilate with bonfires, warm apple cider, and pumpkin carving.” Scorching summer heat is at your back.The winter freeze nips at... Continue Reading →

Quiet Moments

In the quiet moments I feel. Disconnected. Thinking too much about myself. And I get bored. Restless. Worried. I want to speak to someone else. Take the attention off me, please, and give it to the world. Make small talk. Give big talks. Make the world notice you. Not me though. I'm quiet. I'm thinking.... Continue Reading →

Purple Twilight

Magenta dreams. Deep ocean blues with cerulean foam. Red on her lips. Left some on mine. Setting sun pulls the dusk from it’s sleepy hollow. Sapphire sky and big, burly clouds drift away. The inky black brings the purples and oranges for one final bow. Nothing but purple twilight glistening in our eyes.  Header Photo... Continue Reading →

Alluring Darkness

The heavenly woman.She found me while I was dreaming. Her smile was pearlescent.Her eyes were so kind.She told me that her path was righteous.And I believed every lie. Her words were so sweet.That I couldn’t taste the poison.Our fates chained together.I had thrown away the key. Even then, when the darkness reached for me.I did not... Continue Reading →

Desolate Traveler

On the road after the people drift off to sleep.Only the blinking red lights of pointless stops to guide me.Empty roads that rise and fall lazily.The sputtering street lights in front of me and the dark absence behind. Some travel with heart.A glorious purpose forward that guides them forwards.Not me.I am running.Running away from the... Continue Reading →
