Adjacent Titles: Chapter One


The View Imagine looking down from the mountain side after pulling off the winding road for a moments peace. A moment unhindered by the heat blistering through the slitted vents at either side of your head. The same heat that's given you the strength and clarity to drive almost an hour just before dawn, to … Continue reading Adjacent Titles: Chapter One

Chapter One: This is Your Home Now


Olivia sat hard on the box spring, the checkered comforter barely cushioned her landing as a pain shot up her spin through a loud creaking beneath her sore bum. "Ouch!" She frowned and rolled to the side leaving room to rub the sore spots. It was official, she was going to hate this place as … Continue reading Chapter One: This is Your Home Now

Half-lit Cigarettes


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SE1WaaNzW0 Bad for each other like half lit cigarettes, half way toxic but we teeter on the edge, not quite committed enough to death, just bad enough to weaken your will, I'll keep you asleep like a sleeping pill. Living life like a wedge, standing between each other and greatness, you are a genius and … Continue reading Half-lit Cigarettes

Day 4: Reflection


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkFVMDlcJF8 Sometimes.... Sometimes, my heart just hurts, and then I hear a song and it threatens to burst. I'm not sure what is worst, being so close you can taste it, or the fear that you'll  find it and waste it.   Sometimes, the right time never seems to come, Hopes are high and then … Continue reading Day 4: Reflection

Day 2: Quiet


There is a verse that always took my breath, one I will carry close to my heart until we part by death. I put it to use for the joy that it brings, I keep it as a reminder, life is in the little things. A new venture and the courage to try it, a … Continue reading Day 2: Quiet

Caught in the Crossfire


  https://youtu.be/eH4F1Tdb040 I had a question that went unanswered for too many years to count. I hadn't paid it much mind and I think that's why it lashed out. I can only speak for myself so I take it to the water, and I toss it around with no real results, why bother, It's just … Continue reading Caught in the Crossfire

Exposition


https://youtu.be/O0YxeTjFn70 There's something in the water, but I like the way it tastes. It gets right down to business, we're falling race by race. Sweet dreams are made of this, and who am I to dismiss. They take our pent-up traumas, and paint ancient history into current dramas. Entertainment for the feasting, while taking away the … Continue reading Exposition

Day 1: “In the Woods”


https://youtu.be/zU7co2-yn_Q   From the Inside, Out... We can be free, we can be free, what does that sentiment say to me? I close my eyes and I'm surrounded in green, the leaves of trees whisper to me of the things they have seen, They don't bare the harsh assessment they never condemn, green to my namesake, They give … Continue reading Day 1: “In the Woods”

Beginnings


BE FREE When I first started writing it was a therapy, a way for me to get all of my feelings out so they wouldn't explode on the world around me. Somewhere along the way, I started writing for other people, it was something I was good at and like the middle child stereotype suggests, … Continue reading Beginnings

I’ve Loved You Since the Day I Met You


I Get it! I am on my way, while you whisper of a different play, you make me nervous on purpose, while feeding me lies, I'm leaving behind me a thousand failed tries. There are some days that I've felt so lost, sought out mindless self-indulgence regardless of the cost, but I can't stay lean if I … Continue reading I’ve Loved You Since the Day I Met You
