Sweet Poison (with audio)

I gave you all my love you gave me all your lies –  sweet poison on your lips I miss you pretending that you cared make-believing that you loved me –  sweet poison in my ears I see you with her now loving from your whole being –  sweet poison to my heart I envy the way you are together the bitterContinue reading “Sweet Poison (with audio)”

This Place Is Home (with audio)

The smell of the slow-cooking roastlaughter bouncing off the freshly painted walls smile on my face this place is home Carefully thought-out desserts catering to all the dietary needs everyone belongs this place is home Space to spread out and relax feet pounding up (and down) the stairs no need to hush this place is home A drink in hand surrounded by extended family blessContinue reading “This Place Is Home (with audio)”

What To Say

As I watch your world shattermine does too into a complex mix of compassionand putting myself in your shoes            I’m glad it’s not me            but I don’t want it to be you What can I saythat could possibly take the pain away?There are no wordsand there’s no need             Words can’t heal a broken heart             and mourning has its own unique pathContinue reading “What To Say”

Untitled Poem (from 1999)

I’ve been writing poetry since I was a kid. Most of them are terrible, however I thought I’d share a few I recently stumbled across from my teens.

Soundtrack (with audio)

Floodwaters

This rain it falls on my heart – The washing out of humanity haunts my soul drenching me completely I hope for a reprieve I plead for relief wondering when the floodwaters will retreat Until then all I can do is endure praying each drop won’t signal our end The area in my country is currently experiencing a major environmental event with intenseContinue reading “Floodwaters”

If You Hadn’t Been Held

***Mild Trigger Warning – Suicide Ideation*** If they hadn’t been there to hold you close to save you in that moment  you would not be here with me now All your past pains eventually let us meet and we both know life is more fun together as we endure every weather I shutter to think of all that would be missing from my life ifContinue reading “If You Hadn’t Been Held”
