Embers

Never really good enough.. Another charred path..I critique my own senses in a way that I always knew I would. My doubt is not passive aggressive My doubt burns like black coals coating the floors of all avenues of each personal aspiration… And I stand here nowhere with literal bones for feet. Fragile frames andContinue reading “Embers”

Hallways and Key Rings.

For you sister, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mn-FFjIbo8 I see your face in my memories through hallways and key rings. I’d pass by your bedroom, see you with headphones on, dancing. I’d go to my room at only age seven and dance to the same beat until age eleven. It was fun, when we took the headphones off, learnContinue reading “Hallways and Key Rings.”

My Witches

A run-on sentence aka…..my mind. Nobody: “Whatcha thinkin’ bout, Steph?” Me: I can’t pin it exactly when I became so lame but I didn’t know I had the keys to this and I really can’t blame anybody for these silent wars that are waged between my brain in the crevices my synapses focus more onContinue reading “My Witches”

ebb and flow…

There she goes walking past staring crows. Clocking skulls and crossbones row after row. She can feel em’ in er’ blood, She can hear em’ in her soul, Keep that good book open, Keep your pretty mouth closed. Don’t rock the boat. You don’t have to think, just stay afloat. And listen now girl, don’tContinue reading “ebb and flow…”

Shades

Collab with crazy boy, Bharath’s banter. 😃…just a couple of lost and wandering souls…if people had souls.. It’s never about where you sit, But where you stand. It’s not always what you hold, but what slips from your hand. It’s not about the walk, but more about the footsteps. It’s impossible to swim if you’reContinue reading “Shades”

I wanna go.

I wanna go somewhere to a place I’ve never been. I wanna stand on my own to breathe the native wind. I wanna break away from everything I have ever known….. I wanna feel the breeze out there to welcome me back home. I wanna hear their sacred hymns dance throughout the leaves. I wannaContinue reading “I wanna go.”

The Marching Band

Floating like fog in the night, It lingers. Banging its drum, with its frail undead fingers. On an empty chord song, marching into our lives, Grim Reapers gonna get ya, with its sharp seething scythe. A percussion so constant We live fast to deny You can run boy, but from death you can’t hide. HoveringContinue reading “The Marching Band”

While You’re Warm

Hearts learning sparks connected miles away. Linked in time Something fanned the flame. Deepest secrets shared without the blame. In the night we felt alive with nothing to gain. With you I know myself, I’ve found my way. A loyalty to trust, death couldn’t separate. I’ll find the scent of you even through the rain.Continue reading “While You’re Warm”
