Running Thoughts Are Better Left Written Down


I had a thought while running today that really stuck with me. I think it stuck with me because it was the perfect example of why I try not to say things out loud until I've properly thought them through. When words leave our lips too soon, before they are ready, they tend to leave … Continue reading Running Thoughts Are Better Left Written Down

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

Something Beautiful


The sun shining through an old glass window, casting light flecks and small shadows in its wonderful wake, A tree without its leaves stands as a reminder that even ancient giants follow a pattern in line with the frozen lake, The grass sifting over the breeze whispering simple secrets as soft as piano keys. A bird … Continue reading Something Beautiful

Unrequited Love: Death By Dating App


A Modern Disease I looked into my empty screen for the billionth time in two days.   Still no reply…   Maybe reception was bad…   Maybe he doesn’t like you?   Maybe he was abducted by aliens…   Less likely than the previous option…   He said he was going to be out of … Continue reading Unrequited Love: Death By Dating App

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

Princess Crocodile


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgtdETevhUY There's something sexy about the way I dance, I can't stop shaking in my pants, I take a breath, eeerch what does that even mean? I can't write that, it's just obscene, who cares who sees or if anyone is watching, This little tune has me hopscotching. Across the floor and begging for more, it's … Continue reading Princess Crocodile

Day 4: Something Beautiful


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwtljkGZJnI   There are whispers drifting over the airwaves, they sweep me away lift me into a daze. Surreptitious susurrous, with a switchblade synopsis, separated by moments of serendipitous sustenance, Kindness on a whim, bringing me in, telling me stories I crave to hear, only to pull them away and replace them with fear.   Baby, … Continue reading Day 4: Something Beautiful

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
