Awakened.

Eyes closed tight, hoping to stay unconscious throughout the night but you awaken me. Too many visions of you, my palms pressed against your jaw, only to get a perfect view– one without any flaws. I loved you so much I flew into your arms in awe at every part of you. It was your…

Lines.

If love was like crisp autumn mornings, would you still open a window to let the sun in? Despite the frost, I open up like a new journal to be tampered with until it becomes something familiar.

Enough.

If I could see me as you see me, then doubt would  become a myth. Your love is undying altering, refining  yet I try to replace it with the world. Believing I can fill  my own spirit, but  forgetting that it’s you who provides. I have enough, because of you. I have enough, in you.…

Sleep Paralysis.

Dried lips crack into a painful smile as skin becomes rigid like winter’s air   fingertips scrape on split cobble stone with broken glass piercing bare feet   hair drenched in ice cold sweat shivered to the bone with deathly silence   I thought it was a dream, yet you truly existed. Sometimes, I like…

Rush- a short story.

“Wynonna hurry up!” Mom hollers from the front corridor. Her feet stomp and a suitcase drags through the upstairs hallway, down the steps, and out the front door. I rummage through my bedroom closet and toss random clothes into the open suitcase behind me. “Okay, shirts, pants, sweaters, shoes… what am I missing?” I recite…
