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 →

Ocean Days

Sun setting across the crystal water.Gentle waves rolling in.Soft footsteps in the sand.Washed away by seafoam. Laying under a large beach umbrella.Catching the last of the sun’s rays.Sea salt is still in the air.Ocean days can’t last long enough.

On Meadow Lane

On Meadow Lane,There lived a man.A man who used to work as a cook at the local elementary school.A kind, generous man who made sure a kid never went home hungry. On Meadow Lane,There lived a woman.A woman who lived her life as a flight attendant.Flying from coast to coast, seeing the world one airport... Continue Reading →

Misplaced Nostalgia

Nostalgic for memories I never made.And a life I never lived.Girls I never kissed.Places I've never been.  Every turn to the left.Makes me think of the person who turned to the right.What life do they live?How green is their grass?
