The Serenity Song

August 2, 2017

4

​Serenity is an actual place A physical space Sometimes by a lake Or inside of me On a boat on the ocean Or in the forest atop a tree. Serenity is an actual person Made of blood, flesh and tears A nun giving a sermon Or a stranger on a phone line A cherub on […]

A Poem for My Daughter

April 30, 2017

My writing is the single-most important thing in life that has helped my healing. This blog has literally seen me grow up in the last 11 years. I was going through my archives and I came across this post that I had completely forgotten. So, re-posting. ____ As posted on Nov. 22nd 2009 My mum […]

Birthdays Make Me Cry

April 19, 2011

4

My birthday doesn’t arrive, it looms, As a dreadful eventuality might, So I wait with trepidation, Fearing the impending doom. Birthdays make me introspect, Everything seems wrong in retrospect, Everyone else appears successful and happy, And I am left to nurse my dampened mood. A birthday is just another day, But on that day I […]

A Run in the Rain

April 7, 2011

The Woman I Love

December 4, 2010

Why…

August 24, 2010

Why aren’t there pictures of you and me? Why didn’t we think of immortalizing our time? Our short stint with love and life, Why didn’t we keep our moments alive? Why aren’t there songs written by you and me? Why didn’t we eulogize our special bond? Our childlike games and guileless dance, Why didn’t we […]
