My Experience with Addiction

Looking back, what I find especially scary is that I was always one of those kids who pledged to never do any drugs. Ever. I wouldn't smoke, and certainly not pop pills.

Poem: Like a Blank Page

When I awake it's blank like a white page or a clear canvas Like an empty sky a vast ocean that nothing seems to wanna float in I'm not dead Not quite alive I just feel like I've already died I have a heart that doesn't seem to work It beats to a rhythm nobody… Continue reading Poem: Like a Blank Page

Depression and Addiction

I'm not saying these two (depression and addiction) go together--but there does seem to be a painfully in-your-face relation between the two in my life. So, I've been blogging for over a year now. A year and a half? Over 200 posts, and in each, I've been incredibly open--bringing to light sensitive and personal matters… Continue reading Depression and Addiction

Poem: I now Pronounce you, Husband and Wife

How do you sleep in meadows and pink skies yet live with ghouls and cycled cries How do you stomp red roses and lilies then plant new seeds hoping for twice the beauty You buy a house on top of a mountain then watch the view from behind glass You buy a new phone with… Continue reading Poem: I now Pronounce you, Husband and Wife
