I couldn’t stay. Not with every memory of us littering the streets of the city, playing out like the scenes of a movie. The corner store where we’d buy off-brand Oreos and use them as spoons for the pints and pints of ice cream we’d go through in a weekend. The local coffee shop where… Continue reading Moving
There was a time in my life when I swore I would never see color. The hues of blues in the summer sky cut sharply by the yellows and oranges of the burning sun would never leave me speechless.

She was a princess on her own, that much he knew. He knew she had the power to rise above everything, even in the worst of chaos, bring a light to the people, and lead them to greatness. He saw the confidence in her eyes, and he craved it. He was like a moth to… Continue reading Moth to a Flame
The air was knocked out, Of my lungs, And the scream I made, Was deafening. The chill of the breeze, And ferocity as it comes, Is not what left me, Trembling. But rather the harsh landing, Of the floor, Suddenly, as I fell from, Above. Neither a scrape nor a bruise, Left, but something more:… Continue reading Fallen
I was stuck, In a slow motion car crash, With the screech of the tires And the glass of the windows, Piercing into every inch, Of my delicate skin. Just when I thought, It couldn't get any worse, I was transported out of the car, While You were still stuck, In the slowest of… Continue reading I Was The Car Crash

The songs, Played over, And over again until, The notes were scrawled In permanent ink On my pallid skin. The words, Poured out, In sentences and phrases, That I’d keep and come, To find would… Continue reading Our Melodies
If you were the desert, I would pour every ounce, Of my rain, Into your valleys until, I was barren. If you were suffocation, I would give you every breath, Of the air, In my lungs, until, I was drowning. If you were the darkness, I would give you all the light, Of… Continue reading Giving Myself
I desperately wanted the leaves to change. I felt that everything in my life was constantly the same, so much so that I was content to let the foliage die just so I could start over.
