I may be an ordinary soul, just like any other. But let me tell you this; we are all playing this game called life. Whether involuntarily dealt or otherwise. And it's a fickle game. But you, as a player, have a choice. Will you deal me in?

Hey, you. Yes, you. I'm talking to you. The one and only, you. I may be wondering in a field of daisies, where the next looks like the one I just walked by. But I'm going to let you in on a little secret. They may all look the same, on the outside. They may all hang their heads to the sun, thirsty for more of its warmth. They may all have the same amount of petals. They may all droop their heads when the rain is too shy to come out and they may all giggle when the bees fly by, whistling at the daisies that call their name. But, have you ever noticed their roots? A flower cannot bloom without its roots, my dear. And I promise you, no two daisies have roots the same. Now, I would call you a fool for thinking so, but I am guilty too.

Excess Baggage

You still have
Sadness
In those eyes
The bags
She left behind
When she started
Her journey
Without you
When she left
On vacation
Without the luggage
You packed
For her
You still have
Those suitcases
Why dear
Do you still
Keep her belongings
Safe
When the first thing
She did
When she left
Was burn
All of yours

Her #1

And when we were driving
Out of the corner of my eye
I’d see her hand out the window
At the end of her fully extended arm
As if she were trying her very hardest
To touch the stars
To tickle the night sky
And she would wave her fingers to our music
Conducting the world to follow the song of her heart
Instructing the sun and moon and stars to dance with the flick of her wrist
And...

Goodnight, you

The little boy holds me tight
He’s got sleep in his fingers
But before he presses them deep into my eyes
He whispers stories in my ears
I hope he’ll speak of you tonight

Dear Stars

"Dear stars", she wrote

"If I jumped into your galaxy
Would you catch me?
Or would you let me fall back down to earth?
For I am too tainted
Born of this world
At the mercy of its muddied feet
Cradled by its bloodied hands
Raised on its choked secrets and mangled lies
Trained to stare down the barrel of my paper future
Hoping the girl beside me won’t light mine on fire with her flames of judgement and scorn ...
