For The Hatred Of New Beginnings

You know how motivational speakers tell you starting over is the best thing that can sometimes happen to you... That is premium bullsh*t. Waking up every morning, knowing you have to face the same reality is hell on earth; so maybe this is a test run...

Apathetic, Exhausted, Philophobic... Hopeful

So I'm writing this morning because I regressed again and while I'm not sad about it, I'm left wondering when I'll put the past in the past and be able to move on with life, unburdened by the memories of what was, unbothered by the thoughts of what could...

Blasphemy!

Disclaimer; Turn away now you agreed if you think Kambili deserved to be whipped... Mother taught me that God answerth all, that there's only one God but mother doesn't agree with my being a catholic, for some reason the word of God differs there. Growing...

Dear Whoever...

Dear Whoever , My Story is one characterized by heartbreaks, broken trusts, empty promises and abruptly sunken friendships much like Cameron’s Titanic. Where I can start isn’t a problem but when it would end is probably at the tip of a blade, dislodged...

Waterfront...

Waterfront...

I stood at the waterfront with a beating heart, clothed in dripping blood and held by careless, carefree fingers that threatened to do as they pleased. I shut the rib that had caged and held back my ability to wander the vast arid lands of possibilities...

Homeless...

Homeless...

They say home isn't four walls, a shiny chandelier, Italian stained windows and a Russian nuclear proof door. Home isn't the Global Positioned Spot where the 'Leprechauns' buried that pot of gold for if it was; the queue might out 'Trump' that that graced...

Emotions.

Emotions.

Emotions; they come pouring like water off the edge of the Everest; cold and still, like the fires of furnaces of Babylon; heated till the heaters die, dead off of servitude, like the rolling clouds of a Pacific storm, like the stars of the cosmos, like...

Forever.

Forever was not wanting the new tech conversation she was having with her father to end, cause though she wasn't going to get any, it allowed her the chance to bond all she wanted with the man who raised her. Forever was not wanting the hot, unelectrified...

March 19th... (18+)

It is a little past 1 am on the 19th of March and as I gulp down the liquid fire that is this bottle of Campari, I think how my life has changed, quickly I pick my phone and send a text to Aly, “I just did it” and while we are talking via text, I can...

If Walls Could Talk...

If Walls Could Talk...

What if the wind had a voice, the hills a thunderous vocal, the sky let off its secrets like raindrops, doors never shut and ajar was the point of all treason… what if walls could talk? Secrets are meant to spill, for rules were made to be broken, if...

Pursuit of Happiness.

Pursuit of Happiness.
