Storm

In the eye of the stormCan I escapeUnscathedWill I look backOn this destructionTo see the rebuilding of loveWill rose bushes bloomFrom broken heartsCareful not to let anyoneToo closeUntil the right one comesWith gentle handsWho appreciates the beautyAnd understands that loveIs not perfectThat thorns grow to protectAnd distractThey are the stormSurrounding the soft petalsThat wrap aroundWhat…

Running

There is no right way to begin. No way to ensure that what I am writing will fully express what I want to say. The only thing to do is give it my best shot. So here I am. It has been nearly a year since I’ve blogged on here, with the exception on a…

The Storm

The trees bend and sway In the brewing storm They were build to withstand Violent winds And heavy rain In this metaphor I’m not sure If I am the tree Or the storm Or if I Am just a girl Trying to make mountains Out of nothing If I’m really here at all

Telephone Wires

Two by two The birds fly by Dancing in time To the sound of their love And the hustle and bustle Of the streets below On the telephone wires Two stand side by side Making plans for their next adventure But outside my window Is a bird Perched on the highest point Of the tree…

Hour Glass

Everyone tosses around love Like it’s indestructible Like it doesn’t crack Under pressure Like it won’t need mending Or time Or I’m sorry And I feel empty Like the love I could give Has cracked and crumbled And turned to dust Like the hour glass The way time passes quickly When we stop paying attention…

November Came

Some days I still give in To the weight of darkness I carry with me But November came With it’s rolling fog And frozen leaves And for the first time In who knows how long November came And I stayed Wrapped in warmth And his arms And in this moment I forget the weight And…

Dear January, Change is inevitable. You of all would know that. With a new month, comes a new year and a new resolve to be different than you were before. Better than you were before. I have met change with hesitancy, January. We said goodbye to my old dog Noah this months. As expected it…

Undone and Other Themes

I’ve seen so many people searching for a word to describe 2018. Some find exactly the word they need and some find many. I found ‘Undone.’ More on that later. My boyfriend sent me this article the other day and I think it’s really worth the read. The article is about how at the core…

A Letter to December (2018)

Dear December, You didn’t snow this year. At least where I live. I’m sure I’ll forgive you for that. This month has been about reflection, as you could imagine, December. Tomorrow we count down the seconds, drink champagne and kiss our partners at the stroke of midnight. It won’t matter what goals we’ve not accomplished…

A Letter to November (2018)

Dear November, Am I a burden? With all my ups and down? With my sharp edges and tongue? Will there ever be a Winter when I am not drawn to the comfort of my own bed over spending time growing closer with those I love? In the final days of your reign, November, I am…

A Letter to October (2018)

Dear October, We had a bit of a hiccup. Ever year like clockwork, I wake up to dark and gloomy skies and heart to match it. I am stuck between sharing too much and not enough. I have worked hard this summer to make up for all for our lost time, October, and I felt…

A Letter to September (2018)

Dear September, I’ve been busy. Between poetry, comedy, and dinners with friends and family I could barely catch my breath. It’s been incredible. I mean I definitely could use a break, and still I wouldn’t change it for the world. We will call this place our home The dirt in which our roots may grow…
