I write when I find the time - and sometimes when I don't have any at all.

Waves

FREE WRITING

Let the waves of your whispers roll through me. Grin against my cheek. Ocean eyes, you are my sweet temptation, pulling me away from sensibility. But as I feel your heart beating against my chest, I forget. This could be sensible - to ride with feelings. But chasing your thoughts, the ways they chop and change direction, it will drown me eventually. But for now, I feel serenity in a lack of sensibility as we come across discovery of what...

How about you?

FREE WRITING

Does anyone want to be the one I think about? 
My mind is free for you to fill.
My heart is here for you to steal.

Good Morning

FREE WRITING

Fresh tangerines from the garden,
Honey dancing through tea.
Irresistible birthday cake,
The dangerous red of raspberries.
Pancakes on Sunday morning,
Roast dinners in the evening.
A scoop of vanilla,
Or chocolate,
Or strawberry.

Looking at you here, I can no longer contemplate the possibilities. I slowly take hold of your face as not to startle you. I draw closer.

Your skin is cold in this fresh air,
As the birds are dancing through their new sky.
I find you...

Handwritten

FREE WRITING

I could never find a pen with enough ink to write everything I want to write about you. But if I could, I would try. Then again, I do not think that I have pleasant enough hand writing to do you justice. One’s graceful swirls are my lumpy attempts. But if I practiced, like one does in Grade Two, I would try. However, I am worried that I make an immense amount of grammatical errors in my English papers. I...

Our Mother Nature’s Children

FREE WRITING

Hold her children close,
Their Mother has to leave them,
Please, listen to her.

Hold her children close,
Their Mother wishes she could,
Pray that she’ll return.

Hold her children close,
Their Mother does sing to us.
Please love them for me.

Hold your children close,
Their Mother leaves them with you,
Say that she’ll return.

Pray that your promise is true.
Please make that promise true.
Say you’ll make that promise true.
Promise me. Is it true?

Questions and You're the Answer

FREE WRITING

Do you know I think of you?
Are you thinking of me too?
Was there anything before your lips?
Anything of beauty in my life?

And why didn't I hold you that night?
Why didn't I say everything that night?
Why didn't I listen to my heart that night?
Why did fear get in the way?

Why don't you see the cracks?
Why is it that you stay?
Why don't you run away?
Why do you love me today?
Why...

Falling Back, Falling Out, Falling

FREE WRITING

You touched my hand today. Brief but beautiful. A dream I've always had, a surprise I never deserved. It was only as a friend, a kind of touch that you'll forget. A kind of touch that leaves me longing for you. But after a while, a kind of touch that reminds me that I must also forget. A kind that will leave me angry. A kind that will leave me out of love with you. A kind that will find...

Are They Mine?

FREE WRITING

The one I cannot stop thinking about,
They just want to be kissed.

The one I’ll always be dreaming about,
They just want to be held.

The one I get nervous around,
They just want to fall in love.

The one I love, love with all I have,
Do they want me?

Things that Matter

FREE WRITING

There’s things I wish I didn’t know about myself, see about myself, hear about myself that echo relentlessly in my reckless heart. They are the things towering up and casting a shadow over her reassuring smile. They’re the things that push her away. The things that I am letting push her away. 

There’s things you say you love about me, as you gently take my lonely hand. Your words are poetry, you speak with ease. You see the me that...
