If I am Honest with myself….
There are so many times in this life that we push away those thoughts that make us tremble…If I am being honest with myself, the loneliness I feel would be too much to bear. I fill myself with virtual distractions and media. But rather than me consuming media, it is the medium that consumes me.Continue reading “If I am Honest with myself….”
Now I lay me down to sleep
Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the lord my soul to keep. Now I lay me down to sleep. And if per chance I shan’t wake. To continue with my daily pace. Then find my friends for they are found-fragments of my soul. And each lost vagrant you should see. Let yourContinue reading “Now I lay me down to sleep”
When is it okay to reroute? Are these dead ends or only roads not yet paved? When do we depart from our original destination and commitments? Afraid of the future-You hurdle towards the seas and cliffs. Bounding, leaping, crying weeping. Too prove you are awake. To prove you lived through another day. Scribbling frantic melodiesContinue reading “Reroute”
The Silence is Too Loud
The silence is too loud! My head is filled with music and with noise. How do I find notes in fields of litter? How do I find meaning in layers of glitter? The silence is so loud!

I knew (Chronic Disorder Diagnosis: Ehlers Danlos Syndrome)
My family always dies early. For it’s in our genes. So when people ask me about when I will grow old, I have always said it wasn’t my desire. Some part of me always knew that my days were few. And so instead of running, I often stop to greet her, kiss death upon theContinue reading “I knew (Chronic Disorder Diagnosis: Ehlers Danlos Syndrome)”
When I die someday
When I die someday. Sink me in the seas and sound for me a sonic elegy. Throw roses in the rivers to remember me and bury me in red. Let me rest my weary head within the oceans bed. Finally at peace am I, the child of the sea. And when you come to thinkContinue reading “When I die someday”
Would You Relive Your Life Exactly As It Is?
Would you relive your life if you could, with the wisdom you have now? Only with a single change in the texture, but not of the melody, nor sound. The only revision to the total composition would be the accents, but not the rhythms? With more intensity, but the same tonality. Only a modulation ofContinue reading “Would You Relive Your Life Exactly As It Is?”
The rain is stealing my words.
The rain is stealing my words.Where am I? Now with nothing but a quiet soul. Lost in the gardens, and the mud. Sheltered barely by the canopies. There’s nothing much but woes. Where are my friends and family? In other gardens across the sea, the lakes, the trees. I can not remember the times beforeContinue reading “The rain is stealing my words.”

The Futility of Words
Sometimes I wonder why I still speak when there’s so many reasons to not.I wonder if a vow of silence would do some good.Would it make a difference, when there’s so much pain?Speaking contributes to global cacophony.Why do we speak so much?So many judgments and transgressions occur from the flick of a flippant tongue.We’re constantlyContinue reading “The Futility of Words”
