Crying Fire

Am I crashing or am i flying?

Am I an ocean or a fleeting flame?

The air feels so cold and the ground so warm

The water so dry and the grass has been crying

I’m rooted to the sky and the moon is my soil

I’m falling from the ground, I’m so upside down

What am I?



the voice is calling
yelling my name
singing and dancing
“please come and play”
but they have black eyes
and no soul left inside
the voice is just me
after I’ve died


Quiet and emotionless, yet your eyes tell a story. They’re full of everything you’ve ever felt, everything you’ve ever seen. Every lost love. You hold back the tears, for fear of losing those little treasures. Because what was once pain is now your silent agony. Holding on to broken memories, like shards of glass that cut and sting. You can’t let go, can’t feel the pain of what’s on the other side. You’re just a child, too afraid.

the earth breathes

the trees sway in the cold, cold breeze
and the raindrops pierce the the graceful wind
you stop for a moment and feel the earth
all around you, it seems to breathe.
the moon settles among the stars
that tickle the sky with sparkling light
the shadows cast upon the grass
and hidden light finds a place to stay
the earth cradles you in her arms
it’s beauty lulls you to a silent sleep
while the rivers run and the waters fall
and the earth rotates once more

they know

she doesn’t love you
and she knows it hurts
He abandoned you
and he knows it hurts

she spits the names
and she doesn’t care
he watches and laughs
and he doesn’t care

she’s your mom
he’s your dad
and they know it hurts
but they just don’t care

not smart enough for her
never good enough for him
and even though it hurts
you just don’t care
