Welcome to my site. I am a musician and a lover of creative expression through all forms of art. This is my safe place to share mine.

the same

the same

it isn’t the same

without you around.


I’ve seen my friends go

through similar hurt

but seeing and being

are two different things


I cover my windows with blankets


you took the curtains when

you packed up and went

but the light hurts my eyes


I spray my room

again and again

with the strongest scents I can find

but you linger there still


I purge my closets of

clothes that I wore

when I was with you

end up throwing away

all my favorite dresses and shoes


I give up tomatoes and ice cream

and bread

because those were your favorite foods


never felt this way before, but


finally I see what it means

to be breathing, not living

cliche though it sounds

it means what it means

I’d like to lie in bed forever,


things that are broken.

things that are broken.
