You are stronger than me It’s in the way your every movement Moves me Sways me Guiding me forward A gentle hand holding me back You could climb mountains With a steady breath You are stronger When all else falters Remember You are stronger

Shallow Grave

Night cooled black top Littered with pebbles Bits of metal Discarded trash Each step eats away at my feet Each bloodied footstep Getting me one step closer Cars pass by The air current shifts off them Tugging at the hem of my long frayed dress Disappearing from sight Not even a flash of red from…

If Only

I could follow you to the edge of the world Hold your hand as we stare down into the abyss We could find our eternity there In the starless night Falling into the melody of the shadows Let them lull us to that endless sleep Where there is only You and I Me and you…


A thin gossamer veil draped over the furniture Pressing me into the arm chair Cold tendrils constricting around me Pulling the air from my lungs Each miniscule movement I manage Only serves to push me deeper into the cushion I’m sure one day it will consume me I’ll slip between the folds of the fabric…

Falling Into You

Falling into you Was like falling into a snow pile The familiar crunch The cold at my back The sun on my face Bundled in so many layers I didn’t know if I’d make it back to my feet And a part of me Never wanted to get up again


I like to think that some day the earth will stop spinning The children on the streets Birds in the sky Everything will freeze And I’ll finally catch my breath See the world for the light The good Instead of searching for storm clouds
