Unfinished

If I had stopped If just for a moment To memorize every detail Would it hurt like this? Would I be able to reach back inside the memories And find comfort Be confident that you’d remain this close Even as the years pass, and I grow old If I had known our time was coming […]

I think of you

I think of you Every time I drive past our favorite places I think of you Every time I smell blueberries I think of you Every time I see two friends hug I think of you Every time I hear certain songs I think of you You’ve changed me twice First when we met Young, […]

At Dusk

My friend

Wish

Battle

The silence is deafening I can’t shut out that sound The white noise It prevents me from rest Allowing all the demons to rise to the surface The silence deafening The brightness is blinding I try to black it out The light is torture It disrupts me from wallowing Trying to force me to wake […]
