Where can I find love? While sitting indoors, Behind closed doors, Staring at a screen, And everything that happens in between. The stolen glances, At a foggy mirror, The disheveled hair, And stained pajamas, Pasty sallow cheeks, And sunken eyes. Who can love this? With a heavy heart, I fall to my knees, Hot tears … Continue reading I Still Love You
I ran and I ran, not knowing what I was running from, I thought it was the people in my life I was running from, I thought it was the place I was running from., I thought it was the problems I was running from, I did not stop until I was several continents away, … Continue reading Runaway
I have a one-way ticket home, No clue where I'll go from there, Definitions of home are blurry right now, Is it the place you share with people you care for? Or is it the place where all the people who care for you live? I've been cut loose after being anchored for so long. … Continue reading Driftwood

Who Stole my Childhood?
Running carefree with naked feet, Reaching for mangoes up in the trees, Endless summer days of fun, Spent in the lap of the sun.

Warm waves wash upon the sandy shore and tickle my toes, A cool breeze mingles with the salty air, Caresses my cheek and blows through my hair, Gulls fly lazily above me, And pelicans glide effortlessly. The sun hovers in and out of the puffy white clouds, Moving slowly across the azure sky. Kids … Continue reading Dreaming of Florida…
Why You Chose to Die…
I'm sorry you chose to die, So did I. Carelessly you threw away, Everything I struggle to be today. The money and the fame, Did nothing for you. So why should I continue, Down that path. I've been there before, That dark and desolate place, Where the evil mind lurks, Spewing out … Continue reading Why You Chose to Die…
The Winds of Change…
The winds of change blow hard Rattling my windows Shaking every tree in my yard I shirk under the covers Frightened and sick. I try to shut out the howling storm But it will not be ignored One by one the windows shatter And my blanket of safety gets whipped up in the … Continue reading The Winds of Change…
Imagine a sea of humans in a vast expanse of darkness, A lone candle burns in the hands of one, Observing his neighbors unlit candles, He proceeds to share the light of his candle with them. The light grows in intensity and more shadows jump out of the darkness, Almost threatening to snuff out … Continue reading Imagine
Who am I? I don't seem to know anymore! I wake up in the morning And stare blankly at the door. Trapped in a body wracked with limitation, Every breath is an act of suffocation. Am I the sum total of my successes, Or the product of my failures? Everything is a lie and … Continue reading The Dilemma
