  • In Your City

    Originally published in Clay Literary’s RAVEN: https://www.clayliterary.com/post/raven-issue-seven-08-30-2020 eyes squeeze shut all at once with wishes whispered under breaths to be anywhere else, anywhere cooler than the constant heatwave of near 100 degrees. Toes dip into makeshift sandy beaches along the city’s river while children play in water fountains next to erected sandcastles. But here in…

  • I wish it didn’t sting

    I wish it didn’t sting when rejection tears apart what I’ve poured my heart into, hidden emotions or fragments thereof painting scenes that tiptoe quietly or outright screams. I wish it didn’t sting when he doesn’t think much of me, but rather holds a love kept at a distance that silently breaks both of us…

  • Deconstruction Site

    How many times do we take the leap before we realize we’ve jumped in too deep How many times do we stop to realize we need to protect our insides How many times does this heart have to break; this love, you too shall take He was the one healing the deepest scar, the wound…

  • Dear love

    Dear love,Thoughts of you the other day brought smiles. Today thoughts of you produced overrun swells in my eyes. The many years we’ve been separated, but how our hearts have always been close, how many more years will it be like this? Living in fantasy and memories all of the time is no way of…

  • Him, Me, Us

    It was the rippling in his hair, the currents which ran through him and I caught in his riptide, always wondering if it was true. It was the crinkles in his skin around the eyes, years of wisdom and sun-kissed days, the spaces that I would soon settle in. It was our passion that bonded…
