What if the soul were colors swirling together in a plane of utter darkness? What if the colors of the soul show its nature? Its will? How it’s feeling? What would we do if we could see each other’s souls with a cursory glance? Would you notice my faded colors? Would you even care? Would you stand back and watch as the darkness bleeds into the amber light of my heart? Would you watch until my light got snuffed out? Would you enjoy the show?

Cotton Candy


Sometimes the sky is like cotton candy; soft hues of pink, white, and blue. Even during a storm the sky can seem like the sweetest thing, like a better place than the hard and unrelenting ground of Earth.

Hinder Me Not

I am not me. I am but a shadow of thoughts and feelings, succumbing to the choking fingers of life and I hate all that breathes, moves, and leaves. Hinder me not as I slip into this emptiness and let go of the darkness. The fullness of my core dips and sinks as I fall. […]

You gotta wonder When will it all end? Or will it be in perpetual whiteness? The swells and falls of everything Threaten to swallow My head and bones That whither within. I tell ya, you gotta wonder If the searing pain will absolve you Or if you are damned by your steps. The solid sheets […]

I am sitting here, looking at my calendar on the glowing screen of my phone. It is now October. It is the eighth of the tenth month of the year. I could have sworn yesterday was just the end of another year, yet here I have proof of the passage of time, proof that today […]
