SOL: Reminiscence

i’m in love with all
my heartbreaks because of the
words they inspired

3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 84.”


SOL: Denied

The truth is that at
times, without reason, we are
held back from our dreams.

3AM Thoughts
// AKA “Haiku 83.”

SOL: Borders

My entire body is
Combustible; my nerves are frayed
And teetering on the brink of
Relinquishing all control or finally
Throwing in the towel
It’s not a flag, it’s my
White dress I am waving, symbolically
Dragging myself further down

3AM Thoughts // AKA “Like Children, Mindlessly Drawing Lines In The Sand.”

SOL: Adrift

I was lying on
My back in my polka dot sundress
You were in the front of the
Boat, steering us across waves
Into definite abyss but I
Had never loved you more.

3AM Thoughts // AKA “You Were My Captain & You Went Down With The Ship.”

SOL: Mercy

The seaside home post
Hurricane; windows knocked in with
Loving tenderness, glass
Causing explosions of light across
A night sky that raucously
Applauds the natural disaster.
Shingles all but blown off, flapping
Half-heartedly in the breeze, a sad
Showing of resilience.
Door open for the world to see, hiding
Nothing yet the curtains are drawn
On the windows, false modesty.
Protecting the destruction inside as
The water trickles in, soaking the
Stairs with unstoppable power.

3AM Thoughts // AKA “I Am That House.”

SOL: Apprehensive

If only I had been
Brave enough to trust
My own path, except I couldn’t
Help but to look back, hand-feeding my
Insatiable desires, mimicking Orpheus’ most
Loving betrayal

3AM Thoughts // AKA “Strong Enough To Stand On My Own.”
