Silence the Thunder with Rain

"You're not real, but I am." To know the difference is freedom.  To realize your scream is presence. To understand your words is expression. To hold on when you want to let go is strength. A thought is only a thought until you let it grow. Don't let its roots cause the grass to fade,... Continue Reading →

My Anxiety Personified

He has big red shoes, brightly striped pants, and a round waist with ruffled white accents. He has puffy shoulder pads, a rounded sleeve with faded ruffles,  and dingy white gloves. His face is white and his smile distorts real movements, smeared red lips. His smile curls up until just below his eyes and he... Continue Reading →

Blurred Vision

The morning sun peaks through the shades cutting, molding his face. His chest rises and falls. I'm captivated by what my tired eyes think they see. Mosaic art pieced together by shadows and light. I look for those attributes. They calm a nightmare. They lull me to sleep. They make my heart race. Slowly his... Continue Reading →

Connected

Young their pinkies intertwined while sitting atop the monkey-bars. The heartbeat beneath his chest humming underneath a blanket in the back of his pick-up truck One went to college. The other stayed home, comfortable. Other people came and went; they both changed they both learned. A visit back home, a holiday parade, and a simple,... Continue Reading →

Her chest becomes heavy, the breaths are short, and her face is red. The walls inch closer, the voices of others are muffled; the whisper in her head cannot get louder. No matter how hard her voice pushes and scratches through her airway, nothing comes out. Nothing. In the early morning hours she wishes herself... Continue Reading →

Those Eyes

Recreating those intonations, those wordless gasps of air. The moments we felt each other’s nonsense. Years have passed. I... Continue Reading →

A Generation’s Genetics

Her youngest brother taught her, Trusting someone isn't always dangerous. Her older brother taught her, Speaking up isn't always rude. Her mother taught her, Independence is necessary for growth and inner strength. Her father taught her, Mistakes can define you. She stands like an anatomy chart, labeled and defined; being everything she is, considering all... Continue Reading →

One of my biggest “I told you so”

Make me accountable. We cross reference our mistakes and share wisdom, that we ourselves never listened to. The morals of our parents, we once thought had so many flaws, now define the love life that has been repeated for decades; just different people, different order, different world. "I told you... to be best friends first."... Continue Reading →

When I Become a Mom 💛

When that Song Comes On, Of heartbreak and wrong I'll tell her about you... You're the one I'll tell my daughter about when her heart's broken and filled with doubt. When all she hears are lies from the one person she fell for, without any sense of pride. When she asks if I think he... Continue Reading →
