Nightmare

I have this dream, a nightmare really and I have had it the better part of 20 years. It always starts the same and ends exactly the same way it’s what happens in the middle that dependent on what’s happening in my life that changes. It’s dark and violent. Bloody and Horrific. No matter how […]

Not Today

I happened to be at the place where we met today. My mind was not consumed by the memory of you In fact you were nothing but a passing thought as I drove from the building I reflected on what this meant Was I really over you? The events of our time together? Or had […]

Know… means NO

It’s front page these days, another sexual assault, another man, another survivor.

The Hard Stuff

Yesterday I posted a poem called Memory Train. It is a very personal piece as most are. However this one’s subject matter is one I don’t talk about or share. As I continue to write I am coming to realize I can not boost, openness and honesty if I gaze over events in my life […]

Memory train

I took the train today It went past our spot My mind wandered to you Wondering if you ever got caught I think back to that day in court Too afraid to talk If I did afraid of what you might do Would it be more than lurk or stalk Made me feel sorry for […]

Victorious

I removed the final memory of you Washed my hands; I’m clean No longer held down by the anger of you The hate on the surface fading I wrote it down to torch my words No longer going to care Cleansed from your touch, your smell, your sweat I can’t believe I carried it for […]
