And The Words Rain Down
My art is like the rain That falls in spring. It comes Suddenly. There's no umbrella to catch it. I've been in a drought. I need the rain to moisten The dry crust around my heart. So I pray for it to fall But it doesn't. Then one day, signs of a storm appear. Strong winds shake the tree leaves. Dark clouds roll in. It's evening when the skies open up And water pours from the heavens. My mama tells me God is crying, But I know better. I listen to the pitter patter on the roof, While I sit in the kitchen, Watching rain drops slide down The window panes. Suddenly I get that itch to write. I feel that familiar cramp in my right hand, Where

Inspiration breaks like a dam. Let it burst. I think speak and write now. Let it burst. Looking back I lost touch. Let it burst. But this voice is confidant. Let it burst. Practice, practice, I say. Let it burst. Make this time count. Let it burst.

This Heart
Broken hearts bleed Like open wounds - Or so they say. Mine's got this funny way Of not feeling. It does that lub-dub, lub-dub Like other hearts, so I know it's alive. But when painful memories Resurface, like they always do, I wait for my heart to react but Nothing happens. This got me thinking, Is it supposed to be this way? When I'm hurting, does My heart need to hurt too? My answer is no. It's enough that my eyes cry And the tears dry on my cheeks. I'd rather curl into a ball And pretend to sleep. Or ignore my phone when It starts buzzing. I've got some cookies in The freezer, ready to bake. That sweet, gooey goody Is exactly

I Dreamed I Touched the Sky
In the morning I longed to touch the sky. At night, I dreamed I did. I dreamed I saw clouds sailing across the blue expanse Like boats traversing a calm ocean. Farther and farther they sailed away Leaving me behind to gaze after them. Then came a pair of mourning doves, As swift as arrows, shooting past me. I marveled at their speed. Though small, they were incredibly agile And naturally in sync. I wanted to join them, spread my arms and take flight. To my disappointment, my arms would not rise. I floated where I was, suspended midair, And could not signal my body to move. Frustrated, I tried to wiggle my toes. Still, I felt nothing. Mea

A Setting in Your Life
Beyond a glass window, an assortment of baked goods beckons to me from the front counter of the cafe. Behind me a line of people is beginning to form. Despite the pressure to order quickly, that familiar problem arises. Which one should I choose? The blueberry muffins look exceptionally delicious but I’ve never tasted one. Next to them, on a silver tray, are slices of pumpkin pound cake. Immediately, my craving for something sweet intensifies. But, it’s not till I notice the lonely lemon bar on a tray behind the pound cake that I settle on what to order.   Even as I stare, salivating, I am imagining the taste of the chilled good.

Happy Couple, Sad Couple, and Happy Again
Living in a world that revolved around you was natural, until one day when it wasn't. I can't recall when that happened exactly or what changed. All I know (with absolute certainty) is that I no longer feel alone or like I'm missing something whenever we're apart. Just as the world continues to turn and life goes on, I wake up every morning to the promise of a new day, fresh with no mistakes in it, and I am confident that just as the sun, moon, and stars have a purpose, so do I. Though you won't be there to say hello, wish me well, or tell me that I've been missed, it's alright. Everything is alright. For the first time, I feel liberated from

I Write For You
You have asked me before, why do you write, and   my response is never the same. My dear, there is no   definite answer to your question. I write because I feel it.   If I do not feel it, I do not write. Today, in this moment, I write for you.   As the pen glides across the surface of the blank page,   I feel my hand tingling, and so I grip it tighter. I wonder if the pen has learned to think for itself, or is it my hand that knows exactly what I want to say,   even before I do? For, it keeps the pen moving, crafting letter after letter,   with no predictable end in mind. It does not stop when I will it to,   but only when it has written
