A Blank Screen

I wake up early in the morning. The song on the radio is a familiar tune. I stretch out in bed. No one but me and sometimes I’m okay with that. I walk to the bathroom for a morning shower. What should I wear today? Does it even matter? Today […]

Less…

The moon is high, alone in the sky. I always dream of things different for me. No one here but me in my waking hours. In my dreams I am never alone. I hear the depth to the sorrows but what can I do but cry for those like me. […]

A Day of Hope

I wake up here again, waiting for change. Somewhere is anywhere but here, anywhere could be better than here. Waking up each day wondering if today will be the day that is the begin to a change in my life. Will this be the day that my life changes for […]

Things Forgotten

The trees were tall along the highway, towering giants watching over every traveler. Music loud playing in the car, so many more miles to go before we’re home again. When I was young I would watch the trees on the sides of the road. I would dream of these roads. […]

Dreams, Foreshadowing

I have seen these days like a dream. At the time I had little understanding of what these dreams meant. I wake to the sun intruding like a thief stealing my sleep. Someone once told me that I should write down my dreams as soon as I wake up, before […]

These Trees

These trees bend to the wind’s embrace, dance with the breeze, and I hold out my hands searching for a reason to anything. I’m not afraid of the dark, what is hidden can remain, but what I fear the most is going through life alone. At night I whisper in […]

DEAR…

I search your eyes for meaning, your words for reason, waiting for you to say what I have always wanted to hear. These days are the longest days I’ve known so far. Waiting for the unknown to be my destiny. I hear your voice though we have never met. I […]

Alone…

Late at night I watch the stars. I can hear the wind through the trees and a dog nearby barking at the moon. I close my eyes for a moment to recall things of dreams almost forgotten. In my dreams I am not alone and when I open my eyes […]

The Silence of My Solitude

I sit watching my computer screen, wondering if I will ever not be alone, wondering if I will forever be like this. At night in bed I remember being so close to those strangers, the space between us so small but the distance between our hearts light years apart, and […]

Good Night

I stay up late watching the weather outside my window. The sky clears as the moon and stars begin to appear. I feel the need to be somehwere better. I’m solitary. No one to share my bed with. Only my dreams. I feel a need to share my longing for […]

Ghost #2

I feel nothing as I walk the halls of a new school. I was sent to the guidance counselor. She talked about feelings but I feel nothing. I met a teacher while waiting. He told me to come by his class after school. After school I walked in to an […]

Fragments of Memory…

The trees sway in the wind like laughter as I walk alone tonight. The dogs and birds are fast asleep. I hear my footsteps on the wet pavement. Walking alone at night my thoughts are random. Strange things come to me. Like, when do bees sleep? The volume of the […]

Love is…

I hear the music in my ears. The words so clear. I hear your confusion as you begin to speak. I see your panic as you begin to dance. The night is almost over and you are here with me. I follow the rhythm to the place of peace. There […]

No More Opression

I’m taking my time to get the words right, no reason to rush when we’ve been fighting so long, let’s find our voice and shout together as one for this is our time to rise above. It’s been so many years of being less than and now we have our […]

For a friend departed

Sometimes I say a prayer for you while I’m alone. These days are tough and the days and nights ahead will be as they never have before. We can look back with wonder and we could look forward uncertain but all we have is this moment we’re all living in. […]

A Place Imagined

I woke up to a rainy day. The light of a new day barely making through my window. Dreams fading as I become more aware of my room. I sit up in bed wondering how today will be diferent. Clouds drift by as I walk down the street. I have […]
