i can't say the words choking my throat, nor let go, as you walk over the threshold to a brighter life.   dare to miss you produces cracks, splinters my broken heart.   would you miss me? think on our laughs, intimacy, our banter?   am i left with skeletons of the past, hidden away...

heart in my dreams-poetry

i dreamt of you, again. inserted into faded memories shielded in sleep. safe in your arms your intoxicating smile flashed as we spoke like before, afore our affair collapsed.   i awoke, clutching a pillow that, moments before, was your warmth. tears pricked my eyes, constricting my throat as i carried on my morning, day...

My fiance and I returned from a weekend getaway to the mountains and I felt inspired to not only write about one of my favorite Colorado spots (poem scribbles coming soon) but of another feat of nature I deeply miss in my landlocked state: the sea. waves lap against grain, quickly in serenity, against the...

along the way

The road to the end, dirty, twisting, forked never fares well. Will of Nature overwhelming, unyielding, uncompromising escorted every footprint.

Splintering good days, rooting... Continue Reading →

no home

i Dream of funny things. crazy, unrealistic, wild, they said. Dreams of vivid, curry-scented wind soaring over waves, trees, snow-caps.   home would not be stationary rather pieces of my soul, laugh, tears strewn across blue and green, lounging in hidden crevices, caves deep beneath the earth, pools of sapphire and jade, riding the gusting...
