Just Awhile

Come back home,

Where the shore meets the land

Where your past is washed away,

Like footprints in the sand.

Come back to me,

Lance your fingers in my hand.

Brush my hair away,

But just a strand.

We can’t stay long,

I hope you understand.

Just for awhile,

As long as time can withstand.


Beyond the Stars

Under the light of the pale, moonlit sky, I dreamt of you. I saw a secret place for just me and you hidden just beyond the stars. A tiny cottage nestled in trees of evergreen. Here we fall asleep listening to the sounds of all creation.

The dark of night is no longer plagued by monsters and the light of day holds no expectation. Here we live moment by moment, flowing along with the sound of a babbling brook.

Within this secret place, we find our peace. Here we are no longer the sum of what life makes us out to be. Here we are simply us, happy and free.

Beneath the stars I find myself, looking up, leaving my dream once again. Still I remember, that place of peace. I hold it within my heart, until it’s very last beat.

Then I’ll escape once again, to that secret place just beyond the stars. There I’ll be waiting for you, hidden in leaves of evergreen.

Forest of Dreams

In a forest

Full of magic.

You can find me here.

Where birds sing

And soar on wings

Light as a dream.

Scents of rose buds

Swarm like honey bees.

Rays of sunshine beam

Just between the trees.

Plush, green grass

Just beneath my feet.

Roots running deep.

Far within

My forest of dreams.

Broken Into Light

My world was surrounded in gray. The light of day mixing with the dark of night. Suddenly, I heard your voice boom forth, only your face was hidden behind the darkness. Your words came out in a way my ears could not perceive. Your purpose of speaking went unknown to me. Again, your voice boomed. In fear, I retreated further into my shell of protection. There I lay hidden.

Forward you came, taking my small shell into your hands. You looked down upon me with softened eyes. Again you spoke, only louder this time. Loud enough that my shell began to crack.

Light began to escape into the forest around me. I crawled towards a small crack to look out, but your voice sent me backwards as my shell shattered.

Falling to the ground, I noticed the light swimming around me. The trees now a vibrant green and the sky a piercing blue. I landed in a bed of wild flowers, a sea of colors. I looked around for my savior, but nowhere could I find him.

In a moment’s time a small, purple butterfly came and landed upon my hand. As I watched it’s wings flutter, a sense of peace came over me.

Suddenly I knew, you were still there with me and always would be.

Discovering Me

The past few months have been quite chaotic. I’ve had to dive back head first into college and responsibilities of every day life. I’ve also begun spreading my wings and adventuring into new hobbies.

I’ve been on a path of self discovery for awhile now, but lately I’ve truly been feeling the progress I’ve made. Happiness is something that is coming easier to me. I try to surround myself with things that make me smile and bring me joy, no matter how small. I’ve filled my personal space with things that give me life.

The biggest advice I could ever give is find what makes you happy and do that. Life is beautiful. Sure it is chaotic and we see that especially in the world we live in currently. If we let it, it will break us and tare us down, but there is so much joy out left to be had and discovered, even now. Happiness is out there, sometimes it’s just hard to find.

With that being said, I am happy with the progress I have made, but I miss writing. Sure I have been journaling, but it isn’t the same as sitting down and letting my imagination run wild. I miss creating. So here I am, back again. Be on the look out for new pieces coming soon. 🙂

My Nightmare

There’s a familiarity

In the coldness

Of the space between us.

A ghost of my past

That I once felt.

My fingertips have traced

Lines on phantom skin

Once before.

Never did I think

That skin would become yours.

Spirits of past haunt me still.

Maybe this space is

Simply a gap

Of my own creation.

My fear that the same flame

Will burn me twice.

Only this time from

A much hotter fire.

My fear is that our demons

Will refuse to coexist.

Our fires will merge

Until we turn to ash.

Maybe you don’t see that.

My fear is hidden

Far behind my eyes.

You can’t see the destruction

That so easily comes to life.

I see it.

I feel it.

It terrifies me now.

Visions of what

May never come.

Be still,

Let me lead you

In my nightmare.

See what I see

Now escape with me.

Like a Bee

Maybe I’m sweet as honey,

But I promise I’ll sting

You like a bee.

Please, don’t

Underestimate me.

Do it for your own safety.

My body glows

With brighter light

Than rainbows.

Darkness also bursts

Just beneath my seams.

Don’t run from me,

I beg you please.

Hold me close,

Put my mind at ease.

If you care for me,

Allow me to grow,

I’ll be a force that gives

Breath to all.

Without me,

What life

Would there be?

Place value onto me

And I promise

I’ll return the favor to thee.

Love me now,

And I’ll love you forever

Until the prettiest

Of flowers wither and die.

Among the Stars

Maybe, just maybe,

If I leapt from the ground

The wind would

Take me in flight.

My skin,

Paper thin,

Flowing in the breeze.

A lightness in my soul,

Begging me to go.

My dreams,

Deep in my head

As I sleep

In my bed.

I soar,

And never cease.

I fly,

Oh so high.

I touch the sky

And gravity no longer

Holds me tight.

Higher I go.

Now stars are

All I see.

Planets align

Before my eyes.


The universe lurches forward.

Endless walls grow closer,

Pressing in on me.

Lights begin to flash.

They dash

Around my head.

At once,

The walls merge

With my flesh.

The lights begin to

Flash behind my eyes.

Stars swirl around

In my mind.

Cracks form

Along my arms.

Blinding light escapes through.

In a flash,

I am gone.

Pieces remain

Among the stars.

Find me there.

A flare

In the sun.

A twinkle from

A star.

I burn in the dark.

Seek me

Within your heart.


I watched your flame

Burn bright

For most of your life.

I saw as the world

Slowly snuffed it out.

Only a small pile

Of ashes remained

I missed seeing the sparkle

In your eyes.

I use to watch you

Closely as you slept

Throughout the night,

Until the day

You began to pull away.

My child,

Where have you gone?

Don’t you know

I will always be

Your home?

Alone I sat,

With my memories of you.

A tingle down in my soul,

Brought me back.

I saw your eyes

From afar.

There it shown

Once more.

Life filled your lungs.

Magic flowed like

A river from your bones.

My name escaped finally

From your lips.

You called me in,

Welcoming me.

Now, in your soul I rest,

Forever, until death.

Eye of Creation

I look up,

Into the eye of creation.

The breath of life

Brushes against my cheek.

An expansion so endless

Staring back at me.

My heart pounds

At the endless possibilities

Just behind your iris.

Colors stretch far

Beyond what I can see.

Forces pull our world

In ways we often

Cannot see.

Dreams you hold,

Like an endless sea.

Stories left untold.

Secretes man

Will never understand.

Reach out

And grab my hand.

Show me what lies

Just behind those eyes.

Lead me to

A different land.
