Maria’s Fortress

Winds howl, Moons pass by, overshadowed by clouds Of parting rains and shimmering rays Of unseen lights. On a hill stood a house. A fortress from Whence the rule presided. The sun rose, the sunset Mist stole over, The glass frosted, Stone cold, the ice claimed its grip. The cold crept into The threshold, seeped … Continue reading Maria’s Fortress

Pleading for Innocence

There’s innocence upon this hill. Step no further you who’s feet are a guild of guilt. Wielding arms that wilt away whims. Step away, you who’s sly eyes made of sky stare; Battering dames and gathering slaves. You who’s gaze pierces deep to steal souls, Binding them with links that have no bound. Saints, you … Continue reading Pleading for Innocence


I forgot what it feels like to be beautiful I forgot the simple pleasure my reflection is supposed to bring to my soul I forgot that inner beauty counts for something I got so dark and twisted all the light bottled up within me shriveled up and died My ray of sunlight is blocked by … Continue reading Illusion

A Bullet in the Hands of a Child

As a child, I was taught never to hit back, to insult, to degrade…I was vulnerable, lacking understanding of what it meant to be violent. As a child, remembering well, I want to go back and look at the world the same way I looked at it, beautiful in all its ways, peaceful, laughter all … Continue reading A Bullet in the Hands of a Child

He Said He Loved You……

He said he loved you His being was an antonym Everything he did Was opposite his actions Scattered everywhere Like a jigsaw puzzle Amiss like his kiss You could make him a dot (.) and make it stop.   You chose an ellipsis Perhaps to later fill in the gaps With a heroic metaphor but … Continue reading He Said He Loved You……


And when it comes, it's like wildfire; Consuming, spell bounding Inexplicable desire; And when it comes, It comes without consent, Blatantly knocks you off your feet without repent; Digs deep into your soul, and grips Your heart, till the organ swells, Explodes into a mess of abstract art; It keeps you warm, Feeds you, Drives … Continue reading Wildfire

Heaven’s Visiting Hours

If only heaven had visiting hours And RIP, Rest In peace Could be changed to RIP Return if possible I wallow in memories And yearn For conversation I can't earn one cause I don’t qualify Life has disqualified you And wiped you away from its face. I pace in breaths Can't face my fears My … Continue reading Heaven’s Visiting Hours
