Would You See Me?

A poem I wrote that goes into depth on how eyes are the windows to your soul, and the only people who you should love are the ones who fully see you. Addiction can take away so much, and this short poem focuses a lot on the inner demons addiction can bring onto a person.

Would You See Me?
Exploring your mind

-If I removed every inch of my skin-

And tore every fiber of my being,

Would you see me?

-If you took off your rose colored glasses,

And looked deep into my soul, my green eyes,

Would you still see me?

-If I laid bare and nude,

In the middle of the ocean afloat-

Would you love me?

-If I stood in front of you,

Exposing all my inner demons,

Would you still love me?

-If I cried for you,

Showed you inside who I really am-

Would you see me?

-If I endeavored to move on,

And let go of the pain in my past-

Would you still see me?

-If I could touch your arms,

And remain your desire to feel calm and safe,

Would you love me?

-If I could remove my flaws,

Cut away the bad days-

Would you still love me?

-If I found the right words to say,

In times of desperate doubt and hardship-

Would you see me?

-If I dove head first,

And jumped from the highest mountain top,

Climbing every rock, finger's blistered,

Sweat dripping down my hot neck-

Only to reach out for you, and grab your broken hand...

Would you still love me?

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
