Stay

I'll stay if you tell me to stay. But I'll leave if you don't want me here. The world out there is full of strangers. People who don't know my heart. I want to lay here with you and dream of impossible futures. But you don't care for daydreaming. Tell me you love me and... Continue Reading →

Write Mad

Write with red hot anger. Take your boiling blood and splash it across the page. Write with deep sorrow. Let the words flow alongside the falling tears. Write with spontaneous joy. Smile wide and write words lined with sunshine. Write to make you feel something. Write so they will feel it too. Header Photo Credit... Continue Reading →

Tuned Out

The busyness of the world around me.Becomes nothing more than a dull hum.A little bit of white noise. Can’t keep my attention for more than just a second.  Put my headphones on and turn up the music. Tune out from the world around me. I drift here. In a space that's all my own.  Out of sync with...

Snow Day

Little flakes of liberation falling from the sky. No education today. The snow has taken its place. Pile up the snow. Form massive snow forts, sled down hills, roll up snow into men. A whole day just playing in the snow.  Header Photo Credit to Pexels.comhttps://www.pexels.com/photo/scarf-on-a-snow-6012802/

Cold Gray World

Uneven breaths form thin clouds. The cold, gray world seems distant. Unable to find yourself while standing in the crowd. Church bells ring hollow.  "Reach out if you need anything."When...

Turncoat

Shake their hands and smile. With a dagger hidden up your sleeve. Keep the people guessing. Where your true loyalties lie.  The simple soldier chooses one side of the fight. But the trickster fights no war. They just stick their hand in every soldier's pockets. Whatever to fill their coffers. The turncoat sings with the... Continue Reading →

Relay

An idea is like a spark. A small flame of wisdom. Or courage. Passion. Some see the flame as hope. Others as a promise to themselves. Memories of the past. Or an outline for the future. This flame is guarded by each generation. Then handed off to the next. A relay race that extends forever... Continue Reading →

 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 →
