coffee crystals

indelible marks of pencil on golden pages
chronicle the days we spent together
red yellow orange, it was autumn
we had a lot in common
i hoped the warmth would last forever.

a farewell sorrow with blue ink
the ivory paper i write on now
leaves a cut
and gets infected with nostalgia
spilled black coffee on that crisp white sheet
dries in this summer heat.



In a race of the hearts, mine is torpedoing fast

At warp speed, faster on recoil

My face flushes at the finish line, going strong

I’m frozen yet flowing

The light we share fuels your spark.

Sunshine Blogger Award

Thank you Chanel M  for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. This is my first nomination for an award, so thank you so much for your consideration. I encourage you all to visit her site, she’s an amazing storyteller.

Chanel’s Questions For The Nominees:

  1. If time travel were possible (Some may debate that it already is), what era would you most like to visit? Why? -I’ve never imagined being somewhere else other than where I already am as every period in time has come with its challenges. However, I’d like to travel to the mid-1900’s when biology took a leap and concepts about life were becoming alive. Meet my heroes that pioneered genetics. I’m still very much fascinated by that.

  3. Name a talent you wish you possessed. -I’d very much like to play the piano.
  4. What was the happiest moment of your life? -I remember reading my first book and imagining a whole new world beyond that.

  6. What or who are you most proud of? Why? -I’m forever proud of my mother. The way our life is, it’s because of her.

  9. In five words or less, what does the word “normal” mean to you? -It’s comfortable.
  10. Do you believe that world peace could ever or will ever be possible? Why or why not? -I believe so. Mankind has to learn it’s lesson from history.

Sunflowers I Loved

I gave you my plastic heart
You made it stainless steel
I hid my electric bones
But you lit them up like a city.

What is it like to be you

To live in darkness

Spreading joy

Sowing seeds for flowers you won’t see bloom
I hold the last dandelion of summer in my hand
Take it to your room
That’s something I can do for you.



Should I draw the line or cross it?
I’m at the door
The light in your eyes is ultraviolet
But we haven’t made any memories yet
Only situations, they’re not in earnest.

Two months in, I’m writing endlessly
About an extended fantasy
I’m furious at the paper and me
More time gone by forgetting
Than chasing neon lights with you
It’s the state of mind, a mute ecstasy.
