Hide It All

The thoughts jumble and mix in my head spikes of emotion light up- one, two, three- the list goes on. Not knowing what is inside of me a barrier set between me, myself, and I. Butterflies do not show fear that one is much deeper than voiced. Falling apart at the seams chips- to cracks- to breaks. Hidden on the inside it festers thousands of teardrops lost in the dark. Alone, invisible, unwanted, unneeded, ...

Never Ending

We met in the sunlight, So bright darkness could not pursue Souls linked by minds Thoughts shared by hearts. My loneliness disappeared with you And hope took it's place, The fear of nothing was lost to the wind. Words are shamed as minds intertwine in their own dance....

Breathless

A thud against the unforgiving earth howling Winds rushes forth from already punctured lungs and thus begins rebirth. As the twisting forest of ashen metal mockingly salutes the tumble from on high their thin gray branches howl back -- politely matching the shrill pitch of the ringing Winds. Winds continues in this way -- reverberating against the ugly trunks. Until an ashen fog rolls slothfully in ...

Let's go find our minds, in a place that tells no time. We left them far behind, when we sat and watched the sky. Clouds few by in the blue, while we looked for something new.   Me, and me, and me. You, and you, and you. we only have our minds, to fight against the time. We keep them close at hand, while we sit but won't understand. Shapes pass us up in the sky, blindly we see them go by.   You, a...

Youth is filled with discovery, adventure, whimsy and wonder. It is filled with the ones you love and the ones you lose, the things you learn and the things you forget. Sadly, as you grow, the discoveries of play time, the adventure of pretend pirate games, the whimsy of stuffed bears and toys and the wonders of imagination- they all seem to disappear. You forget how to be carefree; you forget how to travel to Narn...

No, be nice. Turn down the volume. But the mistakes. No, don’t think. She can’t help but think. That doesn’t mean we should. How do we turn it off? You can’t. You know this as well as I do.

Okay, so I write, or I try to. I normally write poetry and like everyone else out there, and I think I’m good at it. My teachers have said that I’m good, one even thinks I’ll be published one day. As I’ve grown up I’ve tried to adapt and change my style, and I have. My poetry is much less uniform and more me in a way. But not here to talk about poetry, right. Stay focused. So yeah I don’t write much of that oth...

The Process of Writing

Forcing words, that is something simply, impossible. The words must flow on their own the pressure of a guiding hand will only muddle it in the end. Learn to let them free, they'll sing and dance in beautiful ways creating a unique song. The product is never what it was meant to be, and the reader will take care of the rest. So sit back, let them listen to your words sing

I grew up with a dad who immigrated to America from India, washed dishes and sold books door-to-door in order to put himself through two master's degrees.  I grew up with a mom who married at nineteen, had me and my two siblings by the age of 25, yet finished college on time and with honors.  I grew up with the assumption that everyone has a great work ethic and a “nothing is impossible” mentality.  Then...I started...

Not everything is okay. Fact of life, people. And more and more I look around and see people try to redefine "okay." Or try to figure out the way the world is best run Or what's the difference between messing up and just having some fun There's no black and white- it's all just grey The world is flexible, there's room for all- oh, you're going to pray? A lot more is accepted A lot more is rejected And more and more...

Personal Memoir

I can still feel the humidity in the air and the sweat dripping down my face as I nervously trudged up to the group of people I would soon call my team. My first day of cross country practice is not a day I vividly remember because it was fun or even the slightest bit enjoyable.  It was actually quite miserable, but I still remember that day (and likely always will) because of the impact it had and continues to have on my ...
