I am not the kind of guy who will stay up at night obsessing over the complexities of a relationship. I am not the kind of guy who will lay in bed for many long and sleepless hours determining the subtle undertone and subtext behind each word used in shared conversation. I am not the … Continue reading Allay

Day 6: Hero

It's the quiet nights that linger there, Betwixt the stirring of coffee alone, And the smile that proceeded each bite and Gentle crunch of your twist ice cream cone. Flurried moments flicker through my thoughts just as your full plump lips upon my neck, though looking back, for nearly three years I'd say it's been … Continue reading Day 6: Hero

Where is your poetry? Oh, that my heart could make a sound louder than the constant battle cry … Continue reading Where is your poetry?

Day 2: Journey

Dust that has covered the lands since … Continue reading Day 2: Journey
