A Haiku

She will hurt you in unimaginable ways. You will love her still

Picture Perfect

I was raised A picture perfect family With smiles and laughter Painted so precisely You might not notice A sideways glance Shared in the the silence Of the setting sun These are things Too good to be true But you don’t notice The toxic trail of fumes Filling a canvas With the freckled faces Of…

A Review 4

As I am writing this, I am sitting in a hotel room in Vancouver with none of these books with me. I can’t believe I forgot this review was coming up. I’ve been falling behind with my blog and I feel all sorts of guilty about it. All of that aside, let’s jump right in….

I Remember

I remember loving you like it was yesterday Your body so familiar Your smile looked like home But still out of place I remember loving you like sour patch kids Every fight left me sour But our make ups were so sweet I was addicted I remember loving you like the universe Floating like zero…

Losing Time

I’m losing time and sleep And wasting ink and paper To try and figure out What’s waiting in my future I’m holding tight onto the past And begging the present not to go It’s like I’ve heard this all before Yet still I do not know How not to be engulfed In this overwhelming fear…

NYC

I can’t sleep tonight Thinking of New York City And how different It is from my little town Three thousand miles away

Letter to Heartbreak

How do I explain A grief that was never mine But it’s your birthday And I don’t know what to say Except I wish you were here I wonder about How different life would be If you had stayed A few weeks might have changed The direction of our lives But now I don’t think…

A Review 3

Maybe I have a problem but honestly, I’m not even worried about it. As usual, there are 4 books that I ordered this month. I’m going to say that is because it averages to about one book per week, even if I read them in one sitting. I wanted to savor these books when I…

Between

I feel caught between Loving you and knowing that I deserve better All the while, wanting both And neither at the same time Sometimes all you need a short little poem to get your thoughts across. Happy Monday to you!¬†I want to just say thank you so much to those of you who continue to…

A Secret Project

For those of you who might not know, April was National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) in which many artists take part in a writing a poem every day for 30 days. I secretly decided to take on this project because I want to push myself further as a writer and I thought this would be…

You And Me

You so often like to tell me It’s you and me against the world But it’s not the world that is my worry It’s the demons that unfurl In times of insecurity When our voices turn against The ones that we hold dear Cutting quick in false pretense It’s what will happen When the spark…

Having A Crisis

Having a crisis is funny, if you think about it. It’s like being drunk. All your inhibitions slip away and you’re in an empty¬†bathroom telling every girl you see how beautiful they are. Because they are but you don’t recognize yourself and the mirror tells no lies. Having a crisis is funny, really. One day,…
