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…

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…

Love Letters From God

My dear you finally realize All the limitations The ‘buts’ The ‘what ifs’ The ‘I cants’ The ‘if onlys’ They were created by you And void of Me They were incredibly dense extensions of you And now you’ve learned they can be liberatingly let go of Removing them means removing parts of yourself Heavy parts…

The Most Beautiful Transformation of Your Potent Love

He began to explain With a little pain behind his voice Your words are like a beautiful melody to my soul Your writing almost as beautiful as you But love, why haven’t you written a poem of me? His words hit me deep I had to think intently for a moment Words flow from my…

Thank You Hawaii

As my summer long journey on the bountiful island of Hawaii was coming to an end, I wanted a tangible way to capture the beautiful headspace I got to live within during my time spent there. The pure alignment with my soul, with the planet and with the divine was something I will never be…
