legs swing back and forth, feet slap down on the hard asphalt. the heavy breathing follows in your wake. arms pump forward and backward, hair trailing behind you like a kite string. you push and push and pull and try to hang on. faster and faster and faster still.

propped up against the frame of my door, i close my eyes. the sound of my brother in the other room, the sound of my mom talking on the phone, the sound of my dad typing away. i step back from it all. it melts away, fusing itself back into the fabric of life. & now it's just me.

It's time to admit my sins...

I've done the Dance of Italy.

I'm not proud.

I can't promise it won't happen again,

But I feel it's time to come forward.

Butterflies Part Three (Draft One)

FREE WRITING

“Don’t go… don’t leave me.. Lora… please… NO!” I wake up screaming, sweat covering my body. I look around the room, searching for her, but I remember. She isn’t here. And she won’t come back.

Wondering what time it is I check the alarm next to my bed. It is little after 3:00 am. I let out a groan.

I am such an idiot, I think as I rub my eyes and stand up. Slowly I make my way to...

I am so very tired of these people 
The ones who tell me they are trying now
They preach and place their hands in a steeple
Saying I am hurting you, oh but how? 
Now I reside in endless fear, unjust!
The sweet cocoon of childhood soon popped 
And they believe me still of them to trust
So yes, after the insults for they shopped
I can't believe a word thee said, darling
Thee pelts me with an endless spray...

        Crystals.  Some bigger than others.  Some older than others.  Others hidden.  Some glistening, some dim.  Nonetheless, all crystals are endless and omnipresent.  They will always continue to be created, for there are innumerable amounts of these crystals already dispersed throughout this ever-expanding cave.  And I like to call that cave, Our Universe, and the crystals, its History.

Finally, I was content

FREE WRITING

My mind peacefully returns from sleep,
With the rising orange sun to greet me,
As it peeks through the trees outside my window,
And I smile rests on my face,
As I stare at its beauty.
I curl up,
Feeling safe and free,
Glad to open my eyes for another day,
Glad to be alive,
To be breathing.
Finally, I was content.
