Listening to darkness,

I hear morning light.

Light that comes,

without its warmth.


I’ve seen a man who has drowned. Found face-down, blotched skin, blue and purple tinge, bruises fading and swollen. Tide had brought him in, water swirling, earth set in its spin. Someone’s everything; feeling nothing for anyone, came to rest as nobody’s anything. 


I empty my words into a river,
Letting it carry them out to sea.
Each passing moment taking them further,
So no longer are they here to taunt me.

Do No Harm

Here I find peace
For my restless mind
As I have no fear
Of harming

I can do no harm
To a soul that is dead
Or so very close
To dying.


Some people hate
They hate others
They hate their job
They hate where they live

They hated their childhood

They hate growing old

They just hate it all

The worst

Thing is

They hate


Most of all.


“All women are whores”

It has been said by some men

Written by others

And in the minds
Of many more
Most of the time “whore”

Is used by men 

In a derogatory manner

And nothing more
Well a “whore” has 

Sex for money 

Or sleeps around

Or responds

To opportunities

In a self interested way

With disregard for ethics

And only for personal gain

To me that sounds

Like a lot of men I know

But as I am woman 

Who is nice and sweet

I will call them 

“Business entrepreneurs”

That is sure to make them proud.

Locked Out

When I am
In the darkest of places
I find I am
Alone and I feel
Locked out
I want to scream
But I have no where to go
Where the noise
Of my screams
Would be drowned out

I can not find
The words
That make any sense
Torment and anguish
Cloud my thoughts
And I just need to
Let that anger and
Frustration out

So I let blood flow
And watch as the
Water washes it away
My mind begins to
Feel light and
Tension melts away
Calming me down
Until I no longer feel
Locked out
Only as if one day
I will fade away.
