winter's embrace

winter has wrapped
her arms around me
once more
holding me close
to her ice cold heart
in an sweet embrace
I cannot escape
I watch snowflakes
fall slowly under
a pale full moon
dimming the light
that once shined bright
within my soul

I am drowning
in a sea of emotions
I cannot keep my head
above the high waves
I see the shore line
far off in the horizon
I try to swim back
but my arms have
grown too tired
to fight against the tide

broken mirror

she refuses to look
into the mirror
and stare at her
own reflection
I cannot help
but wonder what
sort of pain lies
inside her soul
that would make
it impossible
for her to look
into the mirror
and peer into
her own eyes

reflecting on time

Photo courtesy of

I reflect on a time
when life seemed easier
and the burdens were not
so heavy and numerous
but then I begin to wonder
whether anything in life
has really changed, or
was it just my youthful mind
that shielded me from such things

you were once
believed to be
a long forgotten

until you came
into the room
and old feelings
began to bloom

drowning my heart
in an emotional sea
that I was not
able to flee

asking too much

I wanted you to kiss
my blues away
heal my pain with
sweet lullabies
I wanted you to move
mountains and part seas
I wanted you to believe
in me

I wanted to love you
until the sun came down
to bath in your light and
covered by your shadow
but you broke down because
I asked to much of you
and I did not offer enough
of me

my mom would heal
my scars with kisses
make all the bumps
and burns feel better
with her simple touch
but now as an adult
when I come home
I no longer have someone
to kiss away these scars 
and make them feel better

since I last saw you

it's been four months
since I last saw you
funny how times fly

when mending a heart
that appeared so broken
and I did not think

I would reach this point
when I would not think
about you every day

but it seems that time
healed wounds and faded
once cherished memories
