A Poem

The world seems so blustery
with its loud gasps and sighs
as if I’ve disappointed it with
the very placement of my body

As much as I try to twist myself,
the gusts keep coming at me
and blow me down this river
so I can float all the way home…

A Poem

I am trying to walk uphill
but it feels like I am carrying
a weighted blanket on my back
and my back isn’t that great
so it’s pulling me back down
because to go uphill means
I would be getting better

It’s always a struggle to believe
that you can climb…

A Poem

Stop thinking about it
Stop thinking about her
and all of the ways it
melted you like a candle
in the depths of the night
and the loneliness of the
morning, alone

Stop trying to make something
that was not into something
that was, it doesn’t work like that
and you know better…
