An Ode to Dorian

The thin skin of time.

Self-deceiving words hold youth?

Root down to grow up.



Fool! I can see you.
Still creeping in your shadows.
I am made of light.

He Says, “You’re one of a Kind”


There’s just one of me,
Of course I’m one of a kind
And that is bad-ass.

Unheard Haiku

Unheard Haiku

The hardest part is:
Explaining that you are hurt,
To those that hurt you.


WoMANity Haiku

WoMANity Haiku

I may be Woman
But also Human. Not beast
So I need not roar


A Haiku With a Spine

A Haiku With a Spine

Have integrity,
No matter what the crowds jeer,
You stand with yourself.


Jericho’s Walls


The trumpets called,
But Jericho’s walls never did fall.
Those were just soothing fables told to create instant gratification,
In a world born of chaotic wandering.

But these false tales of triumph were not lies built on malice and trickery,
Rather a way for us to fool ourselves that we had done all our work,
So we might appear in the norm.
So we might walk alongside the masses and be as one of the tribe.

Although, Fortress walls take years to build
And even longer to destroy,
Brick by brick they can be brought to rubble.
Till the day we reach our inner most treasure
And the trumpets can call at the fall of Jericho’s walls.
