Catharsis


I see it being built, in the eyes in a mirror reflecting the house inside made by bricks, woods, and stones replaced by the fires of guilt. Caught in the echo of the...

An Ending With a Broken Rhyme


My home is the ocean. The waves and the collapsing

of the bubbles without certain figures. Of nothing

but ever-changing, amidst the stillness of the vast emptiness

underneath the surface of these waters. The darkness

echoing below, surviving...

Receding in a Negative Narrative


It’s not the time to seek refuge

to the fulfilling peace brought by razors

and delicately harness the pain from my thoughts

until I cry out your name in anguished voice.

 

The words are cutting deep

to my chest...

Collectors of the Nectar

This is a Villanelle, based on the subject "Butterflys and Bees", but was not accepted. I am still keeping the piece as I feel I can use it in my next book of poetry,...

Collectors of the Nectar

 

As Rose does open her petals wide in the morning light

The collectors of her sweet Nectar advance like army drones

They hover over her colored petals filled with delectable delight

 

Floating just above...

Dressed In Black

About a certain girl...

She staggers in,

Smoking,

I stumble in,

Vodka and Gin,

She offers me,

Just for fun,

Our lips meet,

from the horror, locked up

inside,
