When one door closes...I’ve heard the sayingWhen one door closes... in Free Verse More Like This
When one door closes, another opens,
I felt the disconnect and the lock clicked shut
It closed for just a moment
Then opened so hard
That it spun me
I went down in a haze of mixed emotions,
Not over my loss but feeling for you,
My wants mangling each other,
Eating each other alive,
Until there was nothing left
When the tears stopped
and you were there, waiting
I ran toward you
Wanting change, wanting freedom
Embracing an uncertain future
Your eyes were like the ocean
A swirling punch bowl of blue and white,
So inviting in their dance
So severe was the pull of your undertow
That I dove right in
Without a life preserver
Through your door I swam
With a tail like a mermaid
Propelling me face first
Into your warm water embrace,
With a smile
Meant just for you
It wasn’t what I wanted
At the time...
It was unexpected,
It was love laid out at my feet
In a trail of hot sand
That burned my toes

Dark Star RisingMy youth was all about evolution.Dark Star Rising in Free Verse More Like This
Transition a novelty
in a world that never stopped turning.
The sun always rose from the east.
Eternally disappearing into the western horizon
in an unending cycle.
The night was spilled ink.
A nebulous backdrop for luminous stars
and a moon in constant metamorphosis.
Dawn would tip-toe over the horizon
chasing away misty clouds of sleep
and a new day would begin.
Growing up in a world of diversity was never boring.
Life shifted and swayed with the seasons,
revolving and mutating at a sometimes frightening speed.
Knowledge and confidence came with age.
Always reaching beyond boundaries into the shadowy unknown,
with a compass as my guide.
I wanted to sprout horns
and become the devil-
To keep the dark stars rising
and stay inside the night.
I wanted to sprout wings
and hold the sun in place-
To keep the daylight forever
and still the hands of time.

I take slow steps into the yard, it’s warm tonight and I’m feeling tired. I'm always so tired these days. Plopping down in an adirondack chair I give a small wave to Andy and he’s scowling, having spotted the bottle of wine in my hands.

before we took our vows

Twenty hours of travel
was well worth it.
The paradise we found
in that faraway land
took my breath away.
and a cabin in the rain forest
overlooking a black sand beach.
Our pale skin pinked under the Costa Rican Sun,
the burn soothed under a cloudless sky.
We watched glimmering stars,
brighter in the absence of city lights.
by foreign tongues and familiar arms.
An experience with no parallel.
Taking our commitment
and testing it
making it stronger.
I hiked on slippery rocks
to get to that special place,
to stand underneath that waterfall
To laugh with you,
to take in the wonder of the world
in your company.
To smile just because…
I married you.

No, I could never float with all this pressure
Sometimes my shoulders ache

Sometimes I grit my teeth
when I feel myself careening toward that edge I didn't see
Sometimes I look into that dark hole
and wonder what it would be like-
to let myself sink down deep
and not even try to swim.
Is it dark and quiet,
like a peacefull, dreamless sleep?
But I don’t dwell on that,
because how would I carry you out-
if you needed me to?
How could I embrace such darkness,
and ignore our beautiful Lilli lighthouse?
Sometimes I have to remind myself
that it's okay to drift
close to shore,
that it's okay to dip my toes into the midnight waves
because her light will always guide me home.
Sometimes…I think that maybe I am adrift too…
My arms so tired from the swim,
feeling helpless and lost in the fog,
needing your voice to guide me
and your hands to help me up.

The Sacrifice of Young Hearts - Part 1 Luciana threw open her big blue eyes in the grip of a cold chill that ran down her back. The cave, where she had found a makeshift shelter for the warm and cloudless night, was silent and dark. The thin sliver of moon high in the sky could enlighten only the entrance of the cavity, unable to penetrate the deep darkness where Luciana was hiding.The Sacrifice of Young Hearts - Part 1 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Among the trees was rustling a slight breeze was mingling with the singing of some night birds. Luciana, however, was anything but quiet. An uncomfortable feeling of imminent danger had awakened her and was becoming stronger and more intrusive second by second. The little girl held her breath and tried to sharpen her senses to hear any suspicious noises.

With the thought of you with me.
As if this was all that was to be.
Because all the rain I've seen.
Has washed away all that has been.
All I have left is the memory.
A memory of all that is dreary.
It slowly creeps around.
It leaves me on the ground.
The way it creeps back to me.
Is the way you creeped into me.
Into my heart and mind.
Unexpected and unintentional.
But something that was beautiful.
Much like who you were.
But now you're somewhere,
Somewhere better than here.
That much I understand.
No much less, hopefully more.
I was none-the-less alone,
Made to rise from your ashes.
Ashes that didn't raise a phoenix.
Rather it rose a lion.
Bound to the ground,
But more majestic,
Loving and protective.

what am I
who can I tell any more
I can't tell
if I am sane

and my mind laughs
I run in circles

What have I become?
Why am I still undead?

I have the heart

I wanted these characters to be my friends, and to exist in my mind.
So that whenever I felt alone I could call upon them.
I could have someone beside me.

Even if their story no longer took the form of words.
They would still be in my mind, still be living along side me.
So I would never have to say goodbye.

Sneaking had never been Vegeta’s favorite tactic as a warrior, but there were times when it was necessary. Even though the battle was mostly over, the cell blocks were still littered with escaped prisoners, meandering over the bodies of the guards. But despite their casual stances, he knew they were just itching to come across someone else to kill. None of them could sense energy, so he had that in his favor. But with a broken leg, moving, especially at the speed he needed to, was difficult, though he was no stranger to pain and powered through it. What made for his greatest disadvantage was the fact that the prison ship’s interior had been intentionally designed to make sneaking virtually impossible. The only way he could manage was by playing a leap-frog game, ducking in and out of the open cells whenever no one was looking. All in all, it was a slow, frustrating process. But manageable.

Towards cheering crowds
And jousting noblemen.

Kneels before the masses
Who proclaim him their king.
It understands little of this
But it can see the cloak of power
Clinging tight to the man's limbs.
As it climbs above the clouds,
The king rides to his seaside palace
Knocks upon the ancient gates,
Prances in, eager to reign.
He descends upon the throne,
Basks in the adoration of his subjects.
It can see clouds boiling over the ocean
But the king is ignorant.
He summons the sea to his doorstep,
Suspends it there at his will,
Blind to the tempest growing ever angrier.
Gleefully it watches the storm approach
As the king feasts with his dignitaries.
A wicked, wild wind shatters the merriment,
Heralding the arrival of the king's greatest fear:

Go ahead i'm all yours, please dont be shy..
