What Lies Beneath

Should one fight his way through the thick forest of my sadness-- and chisel away every rock of bitterness that walls off my heart-- he will find that his efforts were in vain. I'm not hiding heaven in this heart. My heart is but a chilled cadaver for me to cut into without ever drawing... 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 →

Circuit Boards

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. Even I, a child, understood the complexity of what made such... Continue Reading →

Field of Despair

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 →

What Matters

This world is so lonely, few friends to relate. Small talk is all they give. How is that any way to live?   My landlord doesn’t understand why the rent is late. He calls… and calls.. and calls.. and calls, Just to belittle and berate.   Given crumbs to work like a robot and still,... Continue Reading →

An Immortal’s Journal Page

There are things in this existence that not even a genius can understand— miracles, worldly dimensions, paranormal phenomenon, purpose… It's commonly understood there are reasons for everything. There must be a cause in order to achieve an effect. Nothing can happen without it being the direct result of something else that has happened. Most importantly,... Continue Reading →

Writing My Worlds

As I start my day of redundant chores, I think about my reality and realize I’m bored. What is this world that consumes my life? It’s depressing and dim; as dull as a butter knife. Every day I wake up, and what greets me first thing? The same reality as before; that day after day... Continue Reading →

String

The string that binds us Is but a single thread of the great web. Only when a dewdrop clings May that one thread shimmer, Setting it apart from the rest Should that string be cut, Only the dewdrop would perish. Find this poem in my poetry book, Restless Reflections: A Collection of Poetry
