The Beautiful Rise of Medusa

Magnificent beyond all measure.She was loved by all who knew her.Adored by the one she worshipped.Her life was beautiful. But then the tides shifted.The waves turned ashen greyAnd brought forth a hurricaneOf blood and fire. When it took her,She tried to fight back,She tried to escape.But she found herself wrappedUp in its icy arms,Breathing inContinue reading “The Beautiful Rise of Medusa”

A Most Treacherous Love

I didn’t mean to or want to.Falling in love was a symptom of anIncurable ailment.The darkest of loves on the blackest of nights. Moonless and starless was this romance.It was doomed from the beginning.Cursed from the very start. Your wicked lips pressed to my neck,How could it be wrong?How could the taste of you beContinue reading “A Most Treacherous Love”


I want to dream about your kiss and how your touch lingers…just there. I want to ache in all the right places. And feel it the day after and the day after that. I want your body on mine, so close that we can feel each other’s hearts race. I want it to last allContinue reading “Touch”


What we have, can’t be explainedOr quantified.It’s not to be understoodOr comprehended. Our love is unpredictableAnd unapologetic.A miracle amongst the rubble and the ashes of the real world. Our love is blind to the pain that surrounds us.Because life is treacherous.A magnifying glass,Amplifying each other’s talents and burning away each other’s pasts. Our love isContinue reading “Immortal”

In Love

I’m in love.Not in the usual way.No.I’m in love with the idea of love. The love that makes you cry into your pillow at night.The love that leaves your body wracked with pain.The love that is love unrequited. I’m in love with the sorrowful love.The love that takes your breath away.The love that heats yourContinue reading “In Love”

Let You Go

In my dreams, you are still here. Smiling at me the way you do.Holding me like you once did.Loving me like before. I realize now that I was overzealous.Overthought every situation.Pushed you away,When I should have brought you closer. You were my favorite necessity.The thing I cherished most.Now I’m sentimental in my feelings,Wishing I couldContinue reading “Let You Go”


But tell me,how can I make you see,just how beautifuland strong you are? That even whenthings get tough,and you power through,you inspire me. Let me show you,just how specialyou really are.Let me take your breath away. I want you to see what I see.The raw power of your mind.The strength in your soul.The tenderness ofContinue reading “Beautiful”


Sleep evades me.My mind far too busy to rest.I dream when I wake.I’m awake when I should beDreaming. The clock says 3 a.m.The perfect hour for a writer.Somewhere dangerouslyBetween loss and lust.Between anger and joy.It hits me all of a sudden. It pours out of me likeAn exploding volcano.The pain and the tears.The sadness andContinue reading “Inspiration”

My Starry Night

The unspoken bondBetween lifelong friends.The words we didn’t need to share,To fill up space and time.The silence of us,Floating up to the moon,In the midnight sky. The secret handshake at 10 years old.The language only wespoke to one another,When we were teens. You’re gone now,But I remember those times,When I look up at the Heavens.IContinue reading “My Starry Night”


From the moment I saw you, I knew. I do not know, what I knew, but I knew it. You were standing outside the doors of the library, on your phone, arguing with someone. You looked defeated and heartbroken. No matter what you were attempting to say to them, it was falling on deaf ears.Continue reading “Crush”
