***a day without you is like a dance without a disco ball...missing all the sparkle.


Branched tentacles slice my legs
As I sprint through the brush
The wind and panting breath
Pounding my ears
Drowning out heavy footsteps
Slivers of moonlights lead me
To the silver lake where I collapse
Weeping as I stare at the most haunting mirror
I have ever faced
Because in it I could see
My reflection was empty.

Tears of a liar

I freeze
As your tears tumble
I drown in them
And guilt from my departure
The face I love
The man I adore
All I ever wanted
Was this life with you
Everyone knows
I want to stay
But I can no longer trust
Our love
Or the tears of a liar.

I tried to save you
But couldn’t find the answers
Now I kneel before the master
Begging for the truth
Let the lies unveil
Strip your soul naked
And derail
All the things you did
To make us broken
My heart is not a token
For you to shelve in a collection
I want to mend what we have lost
Catch the love that we had tossed
And surrender to what brought us
Together before
But I cannot keep fighting
If you don’t want it anymore.


They said it would bring
peace and release
looking within
facing the demons
that blanket my heart
but all I found
in that mirror
was a stranger
trapped inside
she started crying when
I did not recognize
despite the guilt
I could not set her free
a part of me
I didn’t know
but couldn’t let go.

I want to feel
the warmth
Of my youth
On my face again
Like sunshine
And blushing
Un-jaded and true
I want to feel
That was me before you
