Hollow Victory

You stand upon the mountain top. Foes vanquished. A bloody sword in your hand. A trail of bodies behind you. The destruction you have left behind is vast. But you are a conqueror. You won.

Purple Days

Mornings full of frustration and anger. Evenings full of sadness and guilt. Those are the purple days that leave me full of regret. Emotions running high. Words that we never meant to say. They leave bruises on my heart. Whenever the sun sets. And the sky erupts in violet color. I can’t help thinking about... 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 →

Cold Gray World

Hands in your pockets, gripped tight on reality. Heavy, wool scarf wrapped around the face. Misty eyes barely visible. A layer of frost on the coat helps complete the ensemble.

Jumping For Joy

Jumping for joy. Laughing for happiness. Running for excitement. Dancing for silliness. Smiling for delight. Standing for pride. Blushing for embarrassment. Hiding for shyness. Breathing for calmness. Sighing for boredom. Twitching for nervousness. Crying for sadness. Screaming for fear. Shouting for anger. Writing for all of the emotions.   Header Photo Credit to Tiny Buddha... Continue Reading →

She Is Free

She is like a bird free from her iron cage. She soars through the sky following the wind underneath her wings. She is like a fish free from her glass tank. She swims through the river enjoying the flowing currents. She is like a butterfly free from her chrysalis. She flutters about as she takes... Continue Reading →
