Grain

It started off as a simple discomfort, a little hidden truth It started as a little grain, buried beneath the rug with no escape It's funny how life has a way of making you doubt things, Confidently wakening your being to the anxiety based on the lack of something as simple as trust Yet the… Continue reading Grain

Quiet

Needing to be understood, she did the impossible, Hoping to be heard, she gathered the strength to talk Wanna talk? they all love to say, but when she finally speaks, little do they take in Understanding we are all not the same is the only energy she can feed on Understanding that things are the way… Continue reading Quiet

Brother

Brother, Can she pull the strings of your soul, Stimulate your mind, And help you find, The king within... Can she be more than eye-candy? Can she be soul food?

Are you okay?

Should I keep running this race called life? Contemplating my existence and purpose, I met an angel, an addition to my guardians...   You are rejected and despised, everyday you look at me...disguised.

It has always been so easy to speak to you, no judgement, no weird looks You seem to understand me better than I knew myself, I often have to be reminded not be give you access to my bookshelf. The one that holds the map to my weary heart, in fear that you will understand… Continue reading Stranger
