Exploring Surface and Depth

Creating the Difference Between Object and Appearance in Writing


As it stains the ground, we feel it.

Wet against our grainy skin.

As we feel thirst, we drink it.

Quenching us from within.

Yet, when you see it on her face

Reflecting off those warm, brown eyes.

Creating puddles in front of you

You walk away in pure despise.

As it falls down his skin, dainty as can be

Falling to your hands as you begin to leave.

Evaporating as they go, tiny molecules of gas

Little droplets of emotion as they amass.

Simple things like these hold high importance

Whether we use it to live or show emotion.

As we work to make it available or told hold it in,

Each drop is it's own small ocean.

As I look down, I can taste the salt

Feeling it graze my skin as I embrace the sea

Slowly taking me in as it crashes upon the shore.

Or hearing the pitter-patter as it falls on the screen door

A commodity to some, necessary for all

We live with water as it continues to fall.

In us and with us, it stays moving

Just like the reflection you see and the liquid as it flows with fluidity.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire.
