    Just one more swig of rum Just enough to dull the pain Just enough to numb Woke up, head crazed like a zoo Hid his breath with mints and gum Needs work to support his family of two Could not stop the bottle To the monster he did succumb At the pretzels near the bar, he did not leave a ...

    I spend my time burning the midnight oil Looking upon that one star My brain distracted, and in a coil I wish you were not so far I lay around, our blanket sheltering me from the soil But our quilt cannot hide my mar I should have been there to convince you, to spoil You’re last decis...

    My grandmother saw my cut The blood oozing must have given it away She was fussing over me, but I paid her no mind For I knew that rose had thorns Silky petals, intricately enfolded With a color of the liquid in veins So graceful in its pose Remarkable beauty and confidence in its hold And i...

    “What happened?” she worriedly stated, looking at my arm. “Nothing, it’s just some cuts and bruises.” I reply nonchalantly. “He’s doing it again. I warned you, you have to leave that jerk! Every time I see you, the bruises get worse. How can you be so calm about this?” I know she...

    Bird that hunted Gathered prey with its beak Encircling it, I dare not make a sound Hiding in the shadows, I attempt to be sleek Observing nature, I met the gentleman on a weltering noon My interest immediately pique When he walked in the clearing, breathless I went In awe of his ange...
