Washed-Away

When the sun’s set and one can see the early streaks of a dusk sky, I sit on on my porch and listen to the rain as it falls around my dry self. The air gets that washed-away scent as if all the smells that were there previous have been erased. Like a canvas that…

What’s Lost

Sometimes you think, “This could never end.” Other times it’s, “What could possibly come between this? Nothing will ever split this up.” And then the day comes and it’s just over. That thing you believed would go on forever and could never be broken- yet right before your eyes that very thing has ended. You…

New Thoughts That Come With A Warm Breeze

We often don’t believe things are possible until we experience them ourselves. Even when we witness and physically see something that appears to be impossible, we are still left with our doubts. So perhaps this is why achieving your ultimate dream seems so impossible. You have not experienced it yet, as you haven’t reached it…

A Drifting Image

I wonder, from time to time, If I still happen to cross your mind? Because I have not forgotten you, and in my head your face often comes to view. Every time I hear the sirens in my city, I hope that no harm has come to you, pretty. And that would seem a foolish…

Heart of Gold

Like the first Spring days after the long Winter, you warmed my heart which had been so cold. And some days it had seemed I might always remain bitter, but that all changed when I felt your heart of gold. It warmed me from the inside, all the way out, and from then on I…

The Jar On The Highest Shelf

My love is only for you and no one else, so when you gave it back- I put it in a jar on my highest shelf. I’d look at it each day and admire what we had, and when I thought of the happy times I was never too sad. But every now and again,…

L O V E

How could one ever put a definition to love? We think of things like roses, hearts, a flock of white doves, Fancy dinners, fine wines- but they don’t define a thing. And love isn’t always solidified by a hand with a ring. But that feeling you get, known only to you- when nothing can be…

Closure – A Short Story

It hadn’t been long at all really, I think around two weeks. But here it had finally come- the day I’ve been dreading that entire time. I sluggishly stopped the alarm on my phone and attempted to sit up in my bed. I remembered reading something once that once you sit up in bed you…

With You

And still I go back at times to that unknown place. Where it seems time is lost in a swirl of memories. I see the good times and the bad. I feel the emotions as if I were there and shake with the vivideness of what was. And mixed in with the joyous happiness I…

Through My Senses

I searched the garden for the lightest pink rose so that I could see your lips again. But it couldn’t compare. I walked along the shoreline and gazed at the ocean, just to look into your blue eyes once more. But it couldn’t compare. I pulled the down feathers from within my pillow, just to…
