flower, when plucked

Flowers need the Earth, the ground, to be flowers But the ground is still the ground without the flower The flower does remain the flower, when plucked. Once a pretty little thing to look upon, but soon wilting, dying. The ground doesn't need anything to be itself. It is always the ground. If someone asks… Continue reading flower, when plucked

away run run

Looking back on life What did you think would happen? Scarification ... Intimidation Only so much I could take Run away run run ... I am battle strong What did you think would happen?

stray cat chased

You were a light Until you took away your flame You were a smile Until you stopped laughing You were dreams Until you wouldn't wake up You were my trust Until you showed me your other face You were there... here... Until you weren't... Another stray cat chased from your yard... Another lesson for myself… Continue reading stray cat chased

Love weighing you down

I was going to do some research and throw some statistics or studies at you from across the blogosphere, but I decided to take a more loving approach... Love... love is like an octopus... nope, I have already used that one. Love is tricky AF. I have been a little bit of a love cynic… Continue reading Love weighing you down
