Venus Fly Trap

When doing the right thing feels wrong... it's an argument between the angel and demon on my shoulders. Neither wins if each side is gray. So what am I to do then? Out of sight, out of mind... right? So sudden, like the mouth of Venus closing around her prey. He's the unsuspecting fly that... Continue Reading →

When It Has to End

I just sliced through an artery to bleed ... for the sake of stopping the smaller, damage-over-time cuts that I've sliced now for so many years; keeping them hidden from view. Is this truley the only solution? I didn't want this and I still don't. It hurts going in this deep, but it needs to... Continue Reading →

They never scolded me for taking apart the electronics. Every last screw, I’d remove them all. What wonders my young eyes would take in as I studied each of the circuit boards I undressed, With such intricate connections that I knew as life’s breath.

We cannot slow it down, the swift river flow, that passes through this town, like time.   Its focus remains forward, no matter the weight of distractions we constantly toss into it.   Sad that my years too flow through me, indifferently.

As the light began to fade, she found herself standing in a tall grassy field with shadows looming over the horizon. The gentle breeze played with her hair as she listened to the sound of the cicadas drown out her thoughts. She wasn’t sure why she was there. She wasn’t even sure how she had... Continue Reading →

Looking Back

He was never that guy that made my nerves implode His eyes were like oceans that hold endless horizons. He was a sunny day, and I once soaked in his rays A safe and warm home that I once called my own. He never made me lose any sleep. He never made my appetite weak.... Continue Reading →
