I have captured your voice, reassembled it in my throat so as not to forget the … Continue reading Shadows and Reconciliation – Poetry Collab (Ft. Holly of House of Heart)

Break these heavy chains from off my wrists - shatter these restraints and burst my cysts. You've tied me down and pushed me 'round to act like a Queen who's been self-crowned. Days have passed living beneath your authority, democratically contributing to us as a minority. Just a present-being begging for equality, but with no … Continue reading The Mountain’s Peak
Kristian did an amazing job doing the other half to my story about the Rise and Fall of Marcus and Addison! Check it out!

He was a computer programmer for a startup … Continue reading The Rise and Fall of Marcus and Addison (Marcus’s Perspective)
A young boy grew up feeling incomplete raised in a family which shunned his identity; what mattered most was the family's conceit - to have one member be unique was unprovoked obscenity. ~ He spent half a life-time hiding behind a mask; just to feel loved and valued was a Herculean task. Never allowed to … Continue reading To Be Alone And Yearning
I'm shaking like an earthquake, This heart's ready to explode. My whole body is aching, My confidence erodes ~ My problem with love, When there's a risk to be taken. I'd oft prefer my dreams, Except, I'm still afraid I'll waken. ~ So, instead I jump start, The aching of this lonely heart. ~ Sweet … Continue reading Love, Oh yeah – That thing
I've been watching you through all life's stages I've been away for a long while now It feels like ages ~ I can hear your thoughts and words, As I share my freedom with the birds And the breeze.

Our love, it comes and goes, it seems, As if I'm living in a dream. In one moment, we're on fire And in the next, Simply embers, Of all our past desires. ~ There's a space in my heart, Reserved for you. When you'd left, love laid bare. When you'd near, love accrued. If I … Continue reading I’ve Loved You Many Times Before
