This aching in my head is beyond belief, All I want is any kind of relief From the raging fire inside my brain That desperately, urgently needs to be tamed. My life is chaos and out of control, And there is no solace for my soul. The spinning never seems to stop, And I keep … Continue reading A whiney poem
Sitting on my bed Ghosts dancing in my head Talking to the shadows on the floor And the monsters opposite the door. The fire raging in my brain Dreams going down the drain Sadness overtakes me And I can no longer see. Through the fog of depression And walls of oppression The stars are occluded … Continue reading Unfinished poem
A fractured heart pulled apart by a broken mind and I want a sign that it’ll be okay. Crying everyday. Wishing it away. Knowing it’s a part of having a heart and living this way.

Older original art by … Continue reading Cycle
They’re red and burning Showing signs of yearning To just let go. Souls would be crushed So hold on they must As the tears flow.
I laced up my walking shoes and went for a longer walk than I intended today. I even went up what we jokingly call “cardiac hill” in my neighborhood because it is so steep. I just took it slow and walked. It was nice. I waked probably a mile or so. Maybe just under. I … Continue reading Tackled cardiac hill!
I think I messed up. I mean, I screw up on the regular, so I'm not even sure which time I'm talking about. I just think I did. I should have known better. I should have tried harder. I shouldn't have been so weak. I should have been smarter. I should have... But I didn't. … Continue reading Mistake.
I got these cool cubes from a friend. They have words on all six sides, (well some have blanks so you can make your own word), but anyway, you roll them and put them into a haiku. It's fun! I'm a nerd. I know. Photos by me.
