“Deep in earth my love is lying And I must weep alone.” Edgar Allan Poe   A stone with a name glares to me How dare time continue With a cloud full of pity Rain descends Alone, I tighten my coat Rolling towards me Coming from nowhere A lost umbrella With a smile on my lips And...

The exhausted barn sat in the middle of nowhere, left to its rot and decay. It was perfect for cock fights and the bettors. Rooster against rooster, fowl against fowl. Entertainment fit for selfish, drunks, and those who wished to forget. Though the sport was illegal, it didn’t stop the drun...

In a field of wheat and sorrows, the crucified scarecrow watched the sky swirling with creams, grays, and tired blues. Among the dull colors, flecks of black flew in formation.

Daisy once told me the rocks are stars. The sun is infinite emptiness eroding time and space, and we are but travelers finding our destination, our place, in a dying universe. And it was the wind that constructed the sky- an abysmal blue and billowing surface, veiling the black, au...

Even as I hold my pen, I quiver. There’s an earthquake, a deep tremor, coursing through these dark blue veins. Frankly, I prefer thinking over writing, but when I’m too tired to think, when I feel the capillaries in my mind ready to burst, that is when I write. Writing has proven to be a physiological...
