So I Will Wait

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

I was never the girl to be picked up from a bar. I was silent in school. I didn’t see my dad too often. Now you are reading and thinking it’s going to be one of those stories about daddy issues. I don’t know if it is. I have insecurities. I know I’m fucked up…

Heartless

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

“Heartless girl” they called her, you see her sitting with others, smiling, laughing, messing around…have you looked beyond those smiles? To see what she’s feeling inside? To see those lines of stress across her forehead? The dark bags underneath her eyes, how her smile drops all of sudden and her eyes take on a distant…

The Seasons

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

The winter reminded her of the way he held her close. The smell of the fireplace in her neighbor’s chimney, the pine trees, and evergreens and gently falling snow glowing orange under the street light. Heating was expensive, so they used blankets instead. Blankets and each other. She learned what made him the person that…

Let Go

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

You told me, if this doesn’t work out, we will let go of each other, let’s not just stay and be hurt. I agreed. Because I knew, we wouldn’t ever be perfect. But I did try. I tried with all my heart. Against all fiber of my being. I remember that day you held my…

Pictures

These pictures tell stories Of the places I never came to Of the firsts and the lasts I missed Of sleepless nights and hopeful mornings   These pictures, I want to forget, Want to remember, Want to burn, want to frame These pictures, Hold me together, tear me apart   These pictures I now toss…

Giselle

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Pale Woman watches, standing by a tombstone. Calm and unsmiling. She points to a nearby epitaph. Giselle. I found life’s warmth so wondrous but sometimes I must weep. When the grey air cries its frozen tears I see her all around me, blowing her kisses on the freezing wind. Snow flies and the world…

Glass Of Insanity

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

I’m seated by myself tonight, dead within at this terrible time. My mind needs its final end And it must come from you inside, the accursed bottle on the countertop, Calling through this hellish night.   I’ve seen the corpses of many men, strewn around my dreams. I know each name, I know each face…

So The Writer Writes

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

I haven’t written in a while. Those days I used to write I used to smile. It seems like forever since I picked up my pen and laid its tip on this page to convey to you the severity of my thoughts and my feeling for you. This page, this hundredth of a pulp formed…

Touch

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Humans are tactile creatures. It is in our nature. But for some, it goes beyond nature, it is developed. It is an integral part of who they are. That holds true in my life. My life revolves around touch, one might say I am enslaved by it. As an artist, every piece I create is…

Silence

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

Silence. The sky is in a yellow glow of ominous silence. The call to dusk prayer has just ended. 5 seconds. 10 seconds. Of silence. Then I hear, a slow drone of jet propellers. The sound begins to fill the sky. Bit, by bit, by bit. Like ink spreading across a yellow tissue. My eyes are watching the…
