New Poem – Plight of the Roofless

New Poem – Plight of the Roofless

Plight of the Roofless You seem abnormal, slightly off-kilter. You frantically pace the grass, unable to keep your own speed. You are dirty, possibly never showering in your entire life.

Poem of the Week – Unsilenced

Unsilenced Your face was soft, like a cloud of smoke. Your hands froze the world in a single stroke. Your eyes were the light at the end of the storm. Your arms were the blanket that kept me warm. The sound of your heart made planets collide. The touch of your lips changed the pace…

A Poem a Day – Blackberry Night Descends

Oh, blackberry night how you deceive. Blackberry night why must you leave? We picked and searched through fields of scent. We loved and laughed through night’s descent. A blackberry night, it came and it went as we followed the trails that twisted and bent. I held your hand close as you tasted the taste of…
