Poem: Stepping into me

Stepping into me I wonder who I’d be if I stepped into me Would I watch the setting sun, close my eyes and smell the sea Who would I be, if I set my worries free? Throw them up to the air for others to see What would I do if I stepped into you? Have a conversation; one, maybe two? What would I do, if I just made the time? Embrace my one life or crumble and die? What would it look like, if I lived life for me? Would the baggage I’ve carried finally drop free? What would integrity look like, if it were something to watch? Would I fly like a kite, or sting like a wasp? What if my nectar had everything to give? Nourish a poet, a writer, a friend?

What would I do to get …

Poem: Misery

I believe in living a human life; this means sharing all the vulnerabilities of the human condition.  Perceptions and obsessions of happiness can alienate the most basic human emotion and can add to the struggle of finding peace with ourselves. Misery finds itself in a world of secrets. Misery As I walked past you, I heard you whisper my name I begged you not to stare at me, as your scent brought you back to life You pulled me in, and I could feel your fingers touch my skin The moment you touched me, I felt a draft that I evaded as long as I could An ache so deep and heavy, I collapsed from the weight Please spare me the pain of loving you again, and let me go As you scratch my skin, make sure you take all that you can, as it will feed your insatiable appetite of me As I walked to the door, tears stung my cheeks like acid and my heart slowly stopped beating As I pushed the gates of …
