Drunken Dream Catchers

Medusa’s on the table Dancing on Scarecrow’s brain, While Tin Man’s in the corner mending his heart, As the new girl before the mirror waits in vain. Paul Bunyan’s on the shelf Sowing his wild oats, As Babe the Blue Ox forges lakes, Where the loons can crack their jokes. Liquored up and saddled in,…

Hibernation.

It’s days like today that I regret not fixing my transmission. God, I want to drive so bad it hurts. It is, hands down, my favorite thing to do in this world. If I had my car, I’d drive and never stop until I reached my Uncle’s cabin. It’s exactly where I need to be…

It’s Official! My First Article is now Live on elephant journal.

Oh, Happy Day! My first article is now offically live on elephant journal! It’s 100% official now and I’d better shape up or ship out. I remember reading articles on elephant journal for the first time, about 3 years ago. I fell in love with them immediately and have been reading ever since. I never…

Grounded.

I walked home on the fence last night Between a lie and truth. I didn’t even gracefully walk it, Nor did I sit. In fact, I fell on my hands and knees With the weight of thousands of thoughts Running through my head. I’m bleeding. One more drop And I will jump to either side….

Surrogate Lover.

I canceled my plans and I kissed him instead. Hard. Soft. Biting. Melting. Buckling knees. I gave in and I gave out, To the unbridled fury, Thoroughly enjoying the heat we shared. As two became one In a hot messy tongue-twisted affair. Sweaty palms. Unforgiving lips. Gyrating hips. Tangled hair. Untempered bodies. Two forces pressed…

Nut Job.

I’d like to introduce you all to my new best friend, Nut Job. He visits me everyday and reminds us all to keep being squirrely. Furiously collecting his winter stash, while balancing a social life and the task at hand…all while staying alive, is no simple feat. I’d offer him hazelnut coffee, but I’m afraid…

Honey.

I couldn’t comprehend how Spring would bring new life when my heart was still buried in last September, decaying under the memories of you. But, Spring has come and gone and Autumn reigns again, bursting forth colorful displays that remind us all that there is beauty in the breakdown and life in letting go. Like…

Brilliant Goodbye.

Like the haunting brilliance held within a collapsing star that has witnessed the unfolding of billions of galaxies which have come before and that now bows gracefully out of existence, bringing a legendary performance to a close through the rise and fall of birth and death – I rest in silent stillness, soaking in the…

Are You Trying to Seduce Me?

Because, it’s working. What on earth is going on tonight? I’m so inspired by people, it’s sick. Am I manic or am I simply feeling the love overflow? Beautiful words.

Just Watch.

Yes. This. Right. Here. Is exactly why I do the things I do and say the things I say. I say it because I feel it. I drop it at peoples feet and run. Take it or leave it. I’m done apologizing. I’d rather say too much than nothing at all. Too many of us walk…

Ten Shillings & Sixpence

(Ten shillings & sixpence refers to the label on the Mad Hatter’s hat) … Ten shillings & sixpence was the price she paid that day, For sanity at the table and for the love she threw away. To love her is to fall through madness that will curse your tongues in vain, Saturated in a…

Hey, You.

Hey, you can tell the world you’re leaving. You can pack your bags and run amongst the cobblestone and throw them overboard, breaking your gait at the entrance while tugging snug on the hanging cord. Hey, you can tell the world you’ve gone and leave the rest behind. You can glance beneath the curtains and end the show that…
