Favorite Quote:
"Only when it is dark enough can we see the stars."


Cold chains of security with the comfort of bars
In constricting melted velvet of burgundy tar
Puzzle pieces missing from a picture of whole
Unaccounted for factors of a significant role
Censored stories and a torn printed page
Confusion and disappointment in hurtling rage
Outbursts of confinement and makeup smeared,
Pity’s conscience of empathy in star-soaked tears
A prison of dying hope and lethargia’s house
The minuscule squeaking of the mortified mouse
A home that was not a renaissance or womb
Explored my dystopia, a crumbling tomb
I finally escaped, worse for the wear
Blossoming in the absence of oppressive spring stares
