My Love….

My eyes did not widen,  Like heavy husks of tea-soaked bread, I lay idle, unable to move. Submerged in the viscosity of my own tears.  How could you leave me all alone on this planet? After all of these years. They say a heart heals in the hands of time. So why does mine only hurtContinue reading “My Love….”

Poem: Present/Future

  We only have the present. Regardless of what we want in our futures, It is the ‘now’ which takes all of the credit.   Living in the moment, An experience unknown to many.

Are We Truly Selfish Or Kind?

Altruism – “Having or showing an unselfish concern for the welfare of others.” Do you think you’re a nice person? And by this, self-validation in the form of saying “thank you” to the cashier and “hello” to your neighbor I’m afraid doesn’t quite cut it.

What’s Your Biggest Pet Peeve(s)?

It’s been a hot minute (I hate that term) since I’ve written anything mildly conducive to that of an Individual with half a brain cell..

So much so that I’ve perhaps exchangedContinue reading “An Evening Lit By Candlelight”

Poem: Time

  Time. Moving passed like  Dew dripping from the leaves of The waxiest cuticles. My hands, Gnarled, close tight, Around the memories, Uprooted by those of time.   Time, A spectre of the night, Time, invisible to the eye Of even the most profound inspectors.  I suspect. Expecting time to wait for, Any man. IsContinue reading “Poem: Time”
