A pureness Untouched, and bare. My innocence Painted the room Naive. Expectations floating Above my head. Caught and filleted, Rugged, Atop a flat cutting board. That summer night, Staring up at the nighttime sky. I asked, why. With a muddle of thoughts passing me by.
Filling up my puddle, Splish, splash. Pity party for one, please.

I no longer need you. I am grown, but my voice is still small. Scared to start … Continue reading My Protector – January 29, 2018

But you’ve imprisoned me in this space of perpetual conflict. Again, and again I reach out for you. It falls silently at … Continue reading Attempts – January 29, 2018
