The Dark Cage

Inside the walls, and down the stairs
I crept to hide from you.
Believing no one could enter, or escape
no one could touch what I needed to keep close.
...

Snow Angel

the first snowfall
we made snow angels

the yard white, wet
...

23.
Dust Bunny

underneath it all
a gathering of sorts -
idle thoughts,
a notion of success,
...

For Heather

Red sunrise, morning arrives
a snow bunting stirs the morning air -
crisp, as winter walks up our secret path.
...

25.
Bath

who takes baths anymore?
just to soak - to think about life,
or find inner peace
beneath a soapy mirror.
...

Numb-Bers

Numb-bers

List me between the lines,
not fitting into your mold—
...

27.
Morning

The light peeks between the slats of the blind
creating today's first shadow upon our sleepless bed.

It's early, my mind already ahead of the clock

Collected

A harsh moon washes over this tiny room
illuminating the worn floor boards, accenting every ridge
holding a lifetime of worn shoes and thinning socks.
...

Voice

Go ahead and say it
speak what's on your mind -
but get to the point, because
so many times you talk out your face
...

30.
Writer's Block

I stare at the monitor
indecipherable words with no meaning
trying to transmit my feelings
to release my pain
...
