Poem: The Heartbeat of Years

The clock ticks away years like the beat of my heart You’re still in my tears I wear your name like a scar Wishing you were here as I look upon a million stars I awake into a nightmare everyday I’m not in your arms We’re all home now but you are nowhere to be… Continue reading Poem: The Heartbeat of Years

I think I just moved back to TN

It’s amazing how quickly your whole life can change, isn’t it? One minute you have a perfect idea of how everything is going to play out... the next, something as gentle as a breeze comes along and changes the direction of everything. So, the family reunion that brought me to Knoxville went well. Really well.… Continue reading I think I just moved back to TN

Poem: Tears of an Angel

When I was young My grandma would say the rain from above came from the eyes of Angels as they cried To me it didn't mean much at the time But now that my Nanny has become an angel herself when it rains I dwell I pray these tears aren't flooding from her loving eyes… Continue reading Poem: Tears of an Angel

Someone Take Me Home

Home is where the heart is. My home--my family--is my everything. Really, it's funny I say that, because anytime I decide to move, I purposely make the decision to stay living halfway across the US from where my family is. Honestly, I just think there's more I need to learn on my own, and that's… Continue reading Someone Take Me Home

Nostalgia Pt. 2

Life is how it is, and there's no changing that. It comes, and it goes. Along with it, moments come, and moments pass. But these moments, they don't ever truly die--not so long as someone is there to remember them. Through this graveyard of memories is our only real way to access our past.
