Poetry helps us preserve the present moment, as if we could take a photo of right now and keep it forever.

parallel roads

FREE WRITING

i live in a city of parallel roads
and paths that neither twist nor turn.
a lifetime of decisions made for me
that I try so hard to unlearn.
laid out before me, my future
wrestled from my grip.
my hopes and dreams sit deserted
akin to an abandoned ship
at the bottom of the ocean that is my mind
buried in sand up to the mast
so only a part sticks out, just a reminder
of dreams that couldn't...

she must persist

FREE WRITING

even when the wind tears away at her skin
and forces her deeper into the hole she crawled out of
she knows
she must persist.

a thanksgiving reminder

FREE WRITING

your family is the solar system hidden in the galaxy I see in your eyes 
significant, familiar 
yet they do not define you.
they exists only on a remote outer band of your life
and there is so much more to you than what they may perceive.

smoke

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

A bizzare scent
yet familiar to all,
how multifaceted is the sense of smoke?
Able to contain vivid
albiet diluted memories
of both happier times and moments of agony.
Gentle in and of itself
how could we ever define
something so boundless?
