You could shatter glass with the way you look at me. Nightingales singing their sweet song of summer couldn’t hold a torch to the way you make me feel. I ooze into a puddle, bones of jello on the warm concrete surface of your love. When I hear my name flow out of your mouth, … Read more3, 2, Y..

Some Days…

I had fallen through a trapdoor of depression. Walking blindly through the corridors of my feelings not seeing the cracks beneath my feet, leading me to fall inevitably into my bed.

Beauty, Everlasting.

This post was inspired by a friend of mine. She recently wrote an entry about detoxing, a proper healthy way, after getting a hangover with a few pictures of herself detoxing at the end. In one of the pictures she’s relaxing in a sauna. The way the picture was taken, her demeanor everything about it immediately … Read moreBeauty, Everlasting.

Home, Again.

For the last five and half months I’ve been working hard to put myself into a better place than I was before. Everything that happened, happened for a reason. No doubt about it. It was, necessary. In order for me to become the man I always knew I was. It. All. Had. To. Happen. Just … Read moreHome, Again.

Lets Talk: Irony Laced Ignorance

Sooo…it’s happening again. People are outraged at the protesting of the  U.S. National Anthem. I’ve read articles about people video taping (is that still a relevant phrase?) themselves burning jerseys and season tickets that they bought…and I can’t help but think of how all this proves is their ignorance of what’s really going on in … Read moreLets Talk: Irony Laced Ignorance
