Release from a knock

“It’s strange, you know, that you came today, after all this time, after all that happened”.”But, honestly, it doesn’t feel unusual. In fact it doesn’t feel strange at all. It’s like all those things in the past never happened. And I’m glad that I can sit with you today, sipping coffee and discuss it.” he … More Release from a knock

Home

It all began on a journey away from home, in a longing for a place I would want to call home.  I was in the company of my friends and acquaintances yet I was alone, alone- not in the sense that we all secretly want to be, but in a way that makes you want … More Home

Today is a memory

“I want you to remember me. Will you remember that I existed, and that I stood next to you here like this?” Out of all the fears in the world, this is the biggest fear I’ll ever have. “If I should disappear, will you tell them I was here?“ Memories scare me. Oblivion is scary. … More Today is a memory

Oblivion

If I should fade away, will you speak of my existence? If I should disappear, will you tell them I was here?   If I don’t come again, will you miss my presence? If I don’t shed a tear, will you know I still can’t bear?   If I won’t write to you, will you … More Oblivion

Comer Spring

She didn’t want him to come. She never expected he’d. But he did. She didn’t want to feel what she felt, but he insisted, persistently. And, she did. It terrified her, the intimacy words would create. It scared her, the feelings he would generate. She was in a happy place, all by herself. Her walls … More Comer Spring

When Words burst

Today, it burned again, within. Or was it a choke? Maybe.   Today, it hurts again, believing.   The winds last night told a different tale They whispered you had changed. Believe me, I had a hard time believing.   The stars stood witness to the fable. They saw words blowing up in the air, … More When Words burst

The Dead End

And we have lost the spark. Can you feel it too? No two smiles flutter together. Have you seen it too? We stand here, beside, yet apart A blanket of void divides us. No word finds meaning On the opposite parts. Incoherence strikes us hard. Forced conversations have conquered sweet nothings, A hysteric laughter hide … More The Dead End
