    I jumped out the window, Thinking I could fly But my happy thought left me Soaring high above I. I was thinking of you; your smile, your laugh ‘Till I remembered you dreaming out of this life into the next I clapped as hard as I could But still you danced to the light Tumbling and twirling...

    I stare at the mask in front of me; it’s dark and etched with gold thread. I pick it up with the intention of tying it around my head but pause; will hiding my cheekbones really disguise my identity? I mean, there’s still the rest of my face, eyes, hair, and voice to give away who I really am....

    Beyond this door, A pathway splits in two And branches off from there forevermore Which road to pick? Which way to spread your wings and soar? The one that is already well-worn is the easiest choice, For many are there to offer guidance, they’ve been in your place before But if you crave ...

    During the chase, day turned into night. On the Weaver's horse ran into the woods daring to think she could lead us astray, Still and stubbornly we pursued drawn by a desire to see if the legends were true The night wore on, the moon waxing, waning, whatever Orange and bright, it looked...

    Dear World, I’d like to consider myself a poet of sorts; I’ll never be an author for I can’t keep a plot more than thirty pages or so. However, in the midst of my childhood dream that someday I’ll be published somewhere, you throw someone else’s beautiful words at my mind. Words so beau...

    Thrown into the sea as a young girl, from the dolphins she learned to swim And the fish lent her gills, so she could breathe and dream among them under the sea Others gave her scales to cover herself, so she would fit in And over time, from never walking, her legs were woven together by the man...
