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....

{You}(Me)

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 han...

I didn't want to mourn my loss over you, So I chose him. Now you can't look at me And he doesn't talk to me anymore. You are quiet, And he is distant In distance and in conversation. I thought it would help. I thought he would help with you, But now I mourn the loss of two.

At Sea

Filed under Short Stories

I’m walking through crowds of people, bumping into strangers whose names I’ll never know, and as I look around I see no one. I go through my day as if on a conveyer belt, time carries me along on its schedule. And I allow every second of it. Not having you here is the only thing on my mind. It a...

Stream of Consciousness

Filed under IndyInk, Poems

Flowing through my mind like a river Thoughts swimming in my head Like the salmon that follow the currents It all goes down stream. No new thoughts to make a splash, It's all just basic intellect. School, schedules, social life. Things that truly matter not. I walk the halls empty...

A love poem

Men The tough guys The risk takers The pursuers And Women The soft femininity The enthusiastic helpers The pursued But Should not each person Receive respect? Receive love? Feel wanted? Be tough? Strength should come Not from finding a partner But from finding inner balance And The only t...
