But Just Let Me Jump In This Lake

I've never swam with the piranhas that you have Or watched life end in the blink of an eye. Not told my husband is leaving after a 22 year marriage With no explanation or "why?" I've never went a night without eating Or had the misfortune of someone taking my things. Never lost a hand... Continue Reading →

Finally Found Peace

When the last picture is deleted from my phone Nobody ever mentions your name, followed by "I'm sorry." The last email comes with your name on it Nobody asks what happened The last post about you is deleted from Facebook Every card and gift is thrown in the trash When nothing of you exists in...

In a moment of complete clarity The thoughts began entering his head That she was the one Meant for him. He was told At the very last moment of his life This one woman From 30 years ago Was the answer To every question he ever asked. The dream He wished would come true. The... Continue Reading →

I changed it up a bit, added some things, and took some things away. I hope you enjoy it. There is a woman out... Continue Reading →

You Will Remember This

A soft tear that rolls Down her angry and hurt face You know the girl Or at least remember her vaguely Not quite as 'the one that got away' More like 'the one you tricked away'   Bread sits in a basket A bountiful feast on the table; It is a quandary of sorts really... Continue Reading →

What You Require

Pangs of what was barely left of me Reaching for a sword I swore was left Yet no weapon was there. Stranded on a bed of nails Sat on the shore for hours Whispering everything he ever said to me In every language I knew Even Hebrew. I closed my eyes for a moment Remembered... Continue Reading →
