Now

Because I fell in love Twenty times over My heart now lives in the hearts of every one of you Scattered across oceans And living on foreign soil Little pieces spread wisely across the globe Living in many places my eyes have never seen In boundless earth my feet have never met But my heart…

The Sun in My Voice

A thousand suns I have watched them all fall Then rise again And I have tasted each one The sour sweet flavor of healing In search of light I ask myself if I’m finally ready to be heard I hold these prisms to my eyes And I find myself consumed in infinite reflection But all…

Calling My Power Back

I am calling my power back Calling back every last, lost piece Spread amongst dimensions In dreams I have stolen from myself Was last seen sliced into the tongues of broken people Tied up in every insecure word spoken about me Laced into fingerprints on the hands of every man who has taken advantage of…

The Story of Healing

Pull back, and above Realize the amount of people Housed in your heart center You wonder how it ever got big enough Strong enough To hold it all In a moment you are reminded That every rip, tear and lost piece Gave rise to its growth Its strength Its immense space And even on the…

Second Gen Dr. Campbell

Sometimes I wish to live in this fold of time And I wonder if you felt it too Barefoot and cross legged in this auditorium desk Swimming in your old Led Zeppelin tee I swear still smells like you Separated by thirty years And a dimension This anatomy lecture just hit me deep Tears pool…

What a Gift

Right hand on left Left hand quietly jumping With each beat of my heart Chaos swirling abound I craved grounding in the physical The warmth melts me The pulse resonates through my hands And like cursive embedded in every fold It reminds me what a gift it is To exist Mind quiet now Same hands…

The Healer

Tell me you are seeking a healer And I will send you back to yourself The healer within me Is merely a stage Upon it, a teacher Only orchestrating the divine meeting Of the healer within you Do not call me a healer Unless you can tell me How to bottle up this forest air…

Processing Parallels

I don’t know how to explain how these moments feel Like every parallel somewhere along the way Shifted slightly And I stand now in the place where every one of the intersects There are days I get high off just the fumes Of support beneath me They collide with the days where I itch to…

Disease: Expressionistic Love

You tell me to love myself there The place where disease has met the tissues of my temple But how can I love a war That is destroying the very home in which I live? Dark circles decorated with salt water I lay A pen in my grasp And an empty notebook beside me Each…

The Day I Met Grief

I reflect on that day Where I witnessed the most profound marriage The one between beauty and tragedy On that wet July morning When my most tragic physical loss Joined in unison with my greatest spiritual gift It hummed in a wise peace As it taught me about this foreign feeling And called itself grief…

Being Loved By Those Who Do Not Love Themselves

You douse me in hate Expecting me to throw it right back But darling, I’ve traded in my war cries in for lullabies long ago Because I’m the one who broke in those shoes you stand within I’ve stood where you stand I’ve felt what you feel I know the way you treat me is…

Clearing Space

It will feel like you have let loose a black hole In your soul Not only devouring what must go But feeling it reach into the spaces alongside Entrenching in on spaces you’ve held so sacred Spaces you feel you do not know yet how to live without Spaces that you feel are woven into…
