  • Power Outage

  • Remember to Forget

    When I’d stopped, taken a breath and bestilled my beating heart (as it were), I took stock of the situation. Well, let’s see, I thought. You’re in a quiet bar, in the middle of the night, three years in your past, standing here, ranti...

  • The Promise Of

  • The Apartment

  • Wine Red

    Her apartment didn’t seem to have any evidence from what had happened the last time I was there. Whatever sketches that had been ripped apart were replaced by others already. The only thing that still remained was a very faint pink stain in the s...

  • You are a Wall

    I remember When you said you were a wall. Well, you are right, You are a wall I walked around, A wall I walked past. You didn’t move, You didn’t change. You can’t affect me anymore. I’ve been there, Done that, Not going back. So...

  • Entropic Echoes

  • Erase

    Fliping through photos on my phone, one gave me pause. To others it may just look like a photo of a girlfriend and boyfriend snapping a photo of their happiness. To me, it symbolizes a part of my past. This photo is about a year old. I was very happy t...
