Poetry Sessions: 11/11

“Mommy!” I tearfully called out.  I know what you’re thinking.  “Why your son? why now? Why ever?”  I was always a good kid, I was cleaver.  Light hearted, comical, and empathetic.  The actions of those people, pathetic! Why can’t you hear me? See me? Feel me? Please listen to me, don’t cry, dry your eyes. […]

Poetry Sessions: Dis-Ease

I rise each morning praying for the power of invisibility. Then heading downstairs to have my predictable breakfast.   On the menu was the usual, a bowl of insecurity with a side of spite, followed by a healthy glass of detachment, chugging it all down with iron pride.   I maneuvered through the crowd, unseen.

Poetry Sessions: Okay

It’s okay to have screws loose It’s okay to let your bolts rattle It’s okay to scream with joy It’s okay to cry in laughter It’s okay to ask for help It’s okay to admit that you were wrong It’s okay to feel inadequate It’s okay to feel you don’t belong It’s perfectly okay to […]

Poetry Sessions: Temporarily

Popping painkillers in hopes of eliminating pain, yet all it did was nestle it into a corner, saving it for another day.

But the fraudulent ego […]

Poetry Sessions: Resentment

I resented the flower for its vibrant color I resented the swing for its predictable motion I resented the tree for its rooted stability For I had lost mine after my divorce   I resented his smile as I frowned His vitality, as all of mine was gone The personal goals he selfishly set for […]

Twin Flame

Sacred words never meant for mortal eyes. Rest unspoken, but always felt through vibes. But we have met before A hundred thousand times, this I know for sure. As sure as the sunrise, you are mine. Mine in the way I hold you in my thoughts. Mine in the way we share the same heart. […]

Poetry Sessions: Conversations with myself

I looked in the mirror and I asked my soul to speak It told me, “to stay optimistic and you shall never succumb to the weak” I asked, “why the world was filled with poverty, pain and sorrow?” It said, “because the people have lost the joy for tomorrow“ I asked, “why humanity is struggling […]
