“Love kept fighting the heart,
as southern winds fight closed windows.
Had only we opened them,
our summers could tell a different tale.”

I Laugh

“​Sometimes I wonder what hurt more.
Losing you or never being able to tell you that…

Sometimes I just scribble the vaccum you once left. They call it poetry.

I laugh. I laugh…”

I Wait

​”We had to cross ways for only but a moment. Who knew, you would wrap a lifetime in it?

The station remains as it was that morning. The windows roll in to stop, look at me and go.

I wait and I wait…”

Stories on my Skin

​”For the brief time we were one, you left two stories on my skin. The marks of love, and the scars of hatred.

Sometimes, when I wake up midnight, shivering in my cold loneliness, I wonder, which one of them will sleep longer with me.”

Excuse & Reason

​”Love was merely our excuse. Had it been our reason, we would have woven a different story.”

​​”Ah, had we only known, true love comes in our darkest hours. Had we only stopped a moment in our mad quest for light. Had we only looked back once…

Love would have been our story tonight.”

The Moon

​”They say the moon has no life. Well, try convincing that to the heart that still searches lost verses in her face night after night…”
