Lyric Water Dance

A sound poem.

Lyric Water Dance

the nymphs that raise the waves to the hand of Poseidon’s trident

dash fast after the dolphins and lift melodious spray

though cadence and meter lead their leaping little legs

only Bach could wish to capture their moments so flawlessly

the breadth of the seas has no borders and exists through every crease of the earth

and though their sprinkling little hands never touch an inch of soil

sometimes they lend their pond to the sky and keep the salt for their complexion

sister river may never dry by their hands and their tresses douse the trees

and their lips touch the toes of sweet children while hands guide the lost to shore

though sometimes they scream in agony and throw their poor bodies thresh

onto decks and houses and constructions who disrupt their methodic pulse

dissonant hearts shattering at the palm of industry and oil

their mouths peal thunder from heavens while their tantrums tear wood from floor

no nail or steel or father hand can curb the destruction laid out from strife

for when the nymphs feed vanity on the surface of glossy caress

find murky upon their features soft cheeks and the death of so many sweet friends

eventually their wading desists and up the waves they shall sleep

though try to remember the temperamental caress of the nymphs who often dance

in the night

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
