  • golden sunshine music

    Lying out on the deck was something she did daily. Around noon the wooden porch was fully in the sun and at 12:30 when she went and stretched out on it the wooden beams had soaked up so much lovely golden warmth that she could feel it seeping back out ...

  • Everything That You Don't See

    It burns to feel things I wish it would stop I love you, it burns I hate you, it burns I’m angry, yet it’s still burning The fire is out of control It all hurts endlessly My words, they all come out senselessly And as always I bear the pain...

  • What I Know

    I KNOW that the sun shines every day, even if we can’t see it behind the clouds. I know that friends, true and good ones, are a treasure I deserve less than anyone, but one that I cling to like a beggar clinging to the world’s last crumb of...

  • The Gates Are Closing

    The Gates are closing And it’s snowing It always does in such clichés So maybe I’ll just stay Inside the door I see no reason To continue bleeding For something that doesn’t make sense Isn’t worth the expense Not at all The snow just turns to...

  • I'm Already There...

    I’m already there, though I’m far away. I miss you so much and can’t wait to get home. My baby Daughter, don’t cry, I’m right next to you. See the sunshine? That’s my love shining on your face. See the Stars? I’...

  • #77 Summer Reminiscence

    I sat in the sun as the clouds rolled over towards me in the distance. The sun sank ever lower to the East as my shadow stretched out across the lush green grass. The sky was a dusky orange. I often think about you on days like this, days when the spir...

  • slow motion days

    Zooey rummaged through the piles of clothing strewn over her floor, periodically doing ‘sniff-checks’ to determine the cleanliness of each item. She settled on a worn in black tshirt that hadn’t been washed in the past century, but ha...

  • the note

    Zooey skipped along towards the subway station, letting her bag swing freely beside her. The platform was desolate, and she took the opportunity to watch a janitor slowly move a mop from side to side. She boarded the next train, and snuggled herself in...

  • Hazards of Love

    I surveyed the summer landscape below me. The lake gleamed with lazy sapphires, trees groaned pleasantly in the steady breeze, and I was happy. The warm wind mingled with the sunlight, joining to lightly caress my face; I emptied my mind and enjoyed th...

  • Optimism

    A lot of really important stuff happened before you arrived. It’s all right; at least I got to sleep in. That pretty girl from the coffee shop cancels dinner with you again. Guess I get to kickback at home and watch movies. You trip on a hose and...

  • Anticipation of Bad News

    It had seemed a wonderful day to be an art student in London. The rain that had drenched them while stumbling home from a club the night before had blown away shortly before the sun had risen. Through clearing cloud, dawn speared pink, orange and yello...

  • In Between Minds: Broken Clouds

    My stomach twisted with sudden pain and I stumbled feeling sick. Almost at once the lady was beside me, lending me her arm. “Take it easy. We’re in no rush.” I shrugged off her help. With an angry huff, I chucked the remnants of the a...

  • Sunshine in the Darkness

    Plinks of water echoed in the closed space. Mud and rocks challenged Devin’s groping fingers as they sought purchase. His breath felt ragged, as if he were choking, though he knew the cave held plenty of air. At a pause he gave a forceful whisper...

  • Brought To Light

    Rose stomped toward the window, leaned against the wall, and let out a discontented sigh. We had been sitting in that dank room for nearly four hours. “I just don’t understand it!” she shouted. “Julia wouldn’t just run off...

  • Liquid Sunshine

    A tired and weary day hangs up its blazing coat on the grove of stoic oaks standing tall in the yard. Hot, dusty air settles over the ancient wooden porch where a child and grandmother sit, sipping tea and watching the sun slowly slip toward the horizo...

  • With the road as our home...

    With the road as our home we shall always be free.  We’ll travel around with the best company.  The ones who consent to forget all their plans. Those who laugh and just don’t give a damn.  We’ll travel all day and sleep in the car....

  • Coming Back Home

    She woke up under her cloud of gloom. She wriggled under the weight of gargantuan rocks that she clawed on top of herself weeks earlier. She felt different that day. She found herself floating back to the days of sunshine, and friends, and writing. Her...

  • Darkness in the Bright Sunshine

    Harv squinted at the sunlight. He hated it, but taking lunch at his desk meant suffering random greetings and small talk as foisted upon him by his fellow cube farm prisoners. That simply wouldn’t do. Crackers from the yellow package went into hi...

  • The City by the Lake

    He doesn’t belong here. No one takes much notice of his solitary figure, but as he walks the lakefront, he feels as if every eye in the city is upon him. The smell of the lake is fresh and welcome as the breeze that accompanies every wave. The rh...
