Relativity

Above the world,  beyond it all, we sat at the top of the Ferris wheel. Inky, endless night surrounded us as we looked, and we saw the world from a higher perspective. The way the lights twinkled, Neon, tinted with spirit. And that the people looked how we must look to God in the heavens. … More Relativity

Daze

Rain drop Lights off Listening to the quiet throb   My soul afire Lit and sparked But dampened by the drear   Almost empty All dreams disposed Lying near my cup of forgotten tea   Cozy sweaters Yet lonely days I sleep to the murmur of hazy weather   Night, with pen to paper Scrawl … More Daze

Damaged

Broken. That’s what I said, the word I used. That’s what I told myself, and him, as I re-read the letters. Boxed the photographs. Dreamed about us. We’re broken, we’re a mistake, we’re not happy. We were so lost in each other, we forgot who we were–and I was tired of living with the one … More Damaged
