Insomnia

The excessive rain
on a summer night
manifests to excessive rain
on a summer morning

Random thoughts
about everything
and nothing at all
linger and keep me awake
consistently

Restlessness at best
sleepless nights bring
tears to my eyes

My Crimson Heart

My heart bleeds crimson.
It’s drifting, angry, hurt.
Hot like fire
but, you don’t let go.
Scorched hands and melted flesh,
bone deterioration, reduced to ash.
Your spirit holds on;
no rupture or bleeding out.
Still, my heart beats...
for you.

Hear my thoughts on why it’s counterproductive and counterintuitive to diet during the winter in my Everything Girls Love blog post, “Bulk in the Winter, Shred in the Spring.”

Peacock Feathers and Honey

Doused in honey
and caught in a tsunami of peacock feathers
we’re forever connected
a bond that predates most
of my relationships
and once in awhile
when I mistakenly travel back in time
and relive dark, dirty secrets
you help me find my way back
and we unearth meaning and purpose
and the novelty of it all
and it’s those moments that I cherish
they’re as fundamental to me as
preserving humanity
a sweetness akin to honey
not dark, but bright
reminiscent of peacock feathers.

Concealed Emotions

Dressed in all black
like an assassin
I blend in with my
dark thoughts
stealth and agility
a master of suppression
you’d never know
I implode my emotions
to prevent a detonation of petulant,
angry truths
retreat unscathed
void of conflict and casualties
but my insides are raw and burnt.
