I had this sensation
You were drawing me in
Using your presence
To paint an abstraction
Captivating enough
To make me question
My vitality
To compare your
Honest impression
To my internal mechanisms
As you have imprinted my wall
I want to embellish the lives
Of those around me
Sharing in observation
and celebrating difference



Wishful Thinking

20180901_Rain and Shine

I’d like to find a crossroad
Where we can wave
Happily and lovingly
As individuals
Comrades, and passerbys
Respecting our contrast
And celebrating
Our connections
I’d like to reroute
The possibilities
Of unity
Deep within
I’d prefer to better understand
Each others context
As if it were required
By our proclivity
There’s a beautiful cross section
Between compassion
And practicality
Just as there’s a reason
They deserve
Their own definitions
I’d like to remember
Why life is so wonderful
Rather than
Destroy the most magnificent
Essence of our being
Our disparity

Fleeting Feelings

I felt you in the air tonight

Overcome with weightlessness

Eyes pressed lightly shut

I experienced longer exhales

And took in the moment

Watching the leaves on the trees

Dance in the warm summer breeze

Buzzing of my winged neighbors

And the melody of the city surrounding me

I could feel you

Welling up inside

This familiar feeling

I’ve missed you

Fleeting in


never by surprise

reuniting me

With my former self

Recalling past encounters

Embracing the journey

Inhaling happiness

I felt free

I’m Willing to Climb


This island


An illusion I’ve created

From a strained alliance

I can no longer confide

As if I ever truly could

This yearning, juvenile

An unrealistic ambition

Bringing me to this byroad

The serenity I’ve found

By circumvention

Is it real?

Searching for My Self

I remember a girl

Strong willed,

Heart and mind

I recall her depth

Undoubabtle purpose

Absolute necessity to succeed

Her understanding

Of what that really meant

A cause all her own



Her unstoppable prescense

She was an unsung hero

For herself

I miss that girl

The search continues to find her

Discover how she veered off track

To guide her

Back to her roots

While noting

This detour

From her destiny

The hangups

And their past

I know she needs me

Because she

Is me 


Foggy Nostalgia

Some days I can feel the growth
Deep rooted decisions
Moving rapidly beneath my feet
Reminding me
Of the past
What once was
Contrasting with the presence

I’ve been in a fog
A fog of contentment
A place I’ve never been
Constantly searching
For what is wrong
To discover nothing

What is this need for change?
This dissatisfaction
With settlement
Why can’t I stay put?
I applaud my inner workings
On their obsession
With development
I simply wish
They could take the time
To enjoy the peace


My Heart Hurts

I am utterly appalled with the majority of our country right now. 

For the love of god, take a look in the mirror and realize the way you are behaving.

Neither for President 

Maybe…Just maybe. We as a nation can stand up. We can fight against our demise as the laughing stock of the world. Let’s not allow the media OR lieing politicians to run our country.

No I will no debate this with you.
