  • Stealing the Sun

    That sweet solitude, In the serenity of the sun. Laying unabashed with no one to intrude, No more problems of the past to outrun. First the light touches upon my skin, Then it begins to pleasantly burrow Until it warms me from within. Muscles held tigh...

  • Taking Control

    Conversation between Kelly’s parents. “I am not going to stand here and let Kelly continue to see that boy! “Oh, let it go, Diane. They are two grown adults capable of making their own decisions.” “No, they are obviously not capable of making...

  • Watermind

    Stepping out of a dimly lit mindset, the sun feels real passing through some orifice and out into light. The reflections feel endless as I twirl. A stone set path leads me to water. Bubbles’ flight, trickles backwards and up, respecting pressure ...
