Jagged Edge

At the precipice, I stop, gazing over the edge my life flashes. Do I risk crashing, gashing, maiming or should I hold back? Knowing loss too well, I risk reliving a thousandfold death at the jagged edge of promise.

How do I quiet wounds that devoured each day, silence […]

That is enough

Slumber away, my love. With each breath allow peaceful waves to overtake you, immersing you in a blanket of calm.

Close the door on today’s deeds, it was good, but tomorrow will be better.

Embrace the day’s triumphs and missteps, allow yourself to know that quiet place that is you […]

I want to be me again

Moments hold me close,
pull me away from the darkness,
Shower me in remembrance,
free whispered smiles,
from behind a locked,
calloused heart,
renew simple love,
of the child in me,
where hand and hand,
she will guide me back,
from the brink.

Genius Sleeps

Amazing accomplishment begins in the same place, the mind of an individual.  Left alone, ignored, beaten down, it will accept its chosen lot.

Each encounter with a child is a chance to teach by example, open a mind, plant seeds of greatness, allow a vantage beyond generational curses to […]

The Illusion

I spent my entire life falling in love for the wrong reasons. Unconsciously filling a void, compounded by the illusion of my own perceptions. Carefully sealing the door to the possibility of having my gut ripped out again, a self-imposed exile seemed the only option, […]

Hope

Hope rose through
whispered depths,

voices taunting
each outreached step,

unrequited love’s
heart beats still,

live through
another day.

Ebbing Tide

Past winds brush gently,
ignite dormant embers,
remnants in ashes,
awaken a closed abyss.

Vestige in hope amass,
engulf conscious effort,
retreating ocean’s current,
tugging me to it.Perfect moment revived,
unspoken smile,
startled awake embrace,
how I’ve missed you.Eyes close quietly,
deep breath, slow sigh,
love’s reach gasps to live,
exhales, fades away.

Gone, buried deep,
sleeping bliss awaits,
an ebbing tide in time,
that […]
