Everyone says I talk too much, but I'd like to say I'm a storyteller.

Message from Writer

I hope to someday give someone else a home in my words the same way I found a home.

Sunset

FREE WRITING

She sinks into a bed of earth
Until completely out of sight,
Nursing day into night,
Singing to the tired stars,
Ever nourishing life and motion:
To our dearest mother, the Sun.

Strangers Within Strangers

FREE WRITING

Sometimes we encounter peopleĀ 
Who are strangers within strangers;
Their bodies become a foreign shell
Because while walking the hallways
They lost their sense of the floor.

Take As Much As You Can

FREE WRITING

Take the air from my chest
And the words from my paper.

I'll grow trees in my bones
And construct new letters.

I'll use my blood to write
And create my own light.

You try to take away from me.

I'll get back up and continue
Building until you can't ignore me.

People Leave

But most times you can't bring them back
Only they can do that.

PROMPT: Unplugged: Op-Ed Competition

In one of my classes the other day, my teacher was giving us a presentation on Taoism. He passed out a packet of quotes and then started showing us his power point slides. His power point had a lot of different images of water because in Taoism , the Tao is often compared to water. Later in the class, he prompted us to look over the packets he'd passed out. After reading through the packets, he typically has us talk...

holes

FREE WRITING

holes in the curtain
sunlight filters through
weightless yellow fire
slips through holes in cotton

still pillars stand upon
a dreamer dreaming
shattering dreams burning
holes until they're gone

holes from coals
black red scorching
dreamer no longer
soul riddled with holes
