A cascade of tears

Flow down my face

My heart becomes

A cavern of empty dreams

There is no next chapter

Written from here

I must start over

Hone a new craft

That will become me

Hold my head high

And wear the crown

That carries hope


Bottled Up

One night after heavy drinking in a bar, she came home and told me everything she hated about me. On and on. Why were we even together? When she wasn’t looking I smashed a bottle into her head. She doesn’t hate anything about me anymore.


Dream Lover

I used to know you
As a boy

A boy and a girl
Who knew nothing
Of love
Yet in our hearts
We loved

I saw you
In my dream
The other night

Like dreams
Throughout the years
I would see you
In a crowded room
And I would not be able
To reach you

Last night
I found you
And held you
So tight
As if I knew
It would be
The last time
I would see you

We kissed
I felt it
Throughout my body
I felt you
Inside me
Loving me

We laid together
In loving embrace
And you looked
Deep into my eyes as
I woke.



With the tears of joy
Her eyes sting pleasantly
Overwhelmed by
The birth of a child
A beautiful poem
A great work of art
People loving one another

With tears of pain
Her eyes burn in anguish
Overcome with sadness
The death of children
The hate in the world
Cities burning to the ground
Aspirations fading

With tears of hope
Her eyes embrace the pain
Trusting the world will recover
And love will flourish



Invading my dreams
I question all
In dreams occupied
A chase ensues
Needing to be near him
To feel his arms
Embrace me
His lips
Just one kiss
A kiss never collected
Past and present collide
I cannot reach you
Please leave my dreams
Do not torture
My fragile heart
Evacuate my mind
No longer disrupt my dreams
I can no longer endure

One Night – Teaser

She stood motionless in the dimly lit doorway waiting to get up the nerve to knock. Fantasizing for years led to such great anticipation for this moment. Tonight, making the riskiest move of her life, she took a chance on altering the boundaries of their friendship forever.

Inside showering, he was completely unaware of the conceivably life altering events about to transpire. His roommate was out for the night and little did he know the evening’s circumstances had been laid out to the smallest detail, save for his reaction.
