Moving

The walls are bare

The desk is clear

The boxes are stacked

The memories intact

 

Into the unknown

    And beyond

 

To build something new

    Adding to what is already there

Leap

The wind blows

Shifting what is

Shifting what could be

What might be

To follow either path changes everything

The wind blows

As I leap

Waiting

I sat there,

    waiting

 

Waiting to hear,

    a reason to stay

 

But,

    in the end,

         every reason stated

         told me it was time to go.

 

But still,

I waited.

Alone

Lately,

When I dream,

I am driving.

 

Yet,

My eyes cannot stay open.

The car drifts between trees,

Staying on the road only by chance.

 

Darkness surrounds me,

And I am alone.

 

Every night,

I find myself on a new stretch of road.

Alone.

A Scream

Staring at the screen

A scream threatened to break free

It was a scream of frustration, disappointment, and choices

It was a scream of the unknown

But, I closed my eyes

To let it pass

But, I wonder

Should I have let it out?

Why?

Why speak out?

Why say anything?

Why not just let the metaphorical chips fall where they may?

 

Well,

Honestly,

Because it is the only way forward,

It is the only way to keep going.

 

How do you keep going?

Disappear

She pointed at me

and said

“her”

 

He pointed at me

and said

“that’s a guy”

and at the same time

I heard my father say

“you’ll always be just a freak in a dress”

 

When the audience laughed

I just wanted to disappear

Friday Night

Rear Window shines on a white stucco wall

Charred pita slides onto the platter

Salt-rimmed glasses

Filled and unfilled

Clutter the too small table

Laughter

Fire

Music

Friday night
