We met in the produce section of the grocery store by my apartment. Our hands touched and sparks flew as we both reached for the same eggplant. Our eyes locked, and it was like we both knew. Right now your brows are probably scrunching together as you wonder who I’m talking about because, well, that’s… Continue reading A letter to my Lover #1
She's a sunrise the Universe never wanted to share and so the world remained dark without her light She keeps me grounded like the roots of a redwood stretching through the Earth reaching like thirsty fingers as mine slip through hers I grip them tight Her hand in mine Never wanting to let go ever… Continue reading She Keeps Me – A Poem
In a rain-kissed meadow dew on green blades glisten like stars in the day Smoke-like clouds open wide like pages of a book Pedals of rose and yellow like lips of mother nature bloom for the sun and dance for the wind He flows over the earth gentle like a singing stream In one hand… Continue reading Poem: Off in the Meadow
Your blood, it doesn't run in my veins My face, it doesn't fit into your frame And I just don't belong in your name You and I lived lives unequal I was raised Alcoholics and needles All I've known Broken, like my homes broke, like my wallet broke, like my soul Never truly felt like… Continue reading Poem : The Blacksheep
