It was over. The memory of tail lights lingered in his mind. She’s taunting me. Roy lit a smoke and stared across the water. Rain fell like tears and rolled over the pavement. The lonesome moan of a tug echoed in the distance. He felt his pulse pump like a bass line. As his forehead touched the rail, he closed his eyes in prayer. … Read More

Say it. Say you didn’t feel it. Then walk away because I can’t. How does one forget the only thing worth cherishing in this life? Some things- some things know nothing of endings. So say it or live the rest of your life in a lie. ~ excerpt from a scene

and you erased me from the page as if I had never existed, as if I had never mattered to you, as if I was a smudge.   dialogue    

  Stars quiver in darkness Shy of love’s light The heavens are silent when an angel takes flight   Hush a bye darling You’re not alone Safe in his arms He’ll carry you home.    

and I will bury the pain of you deep within my heart form you familiar this way, you can never disappoint that way, you can live on a dull reminder of the first man I ever loved   ~scotch and water

The saddest moment is when you realize that the people you love, the ones you’d give anything for,  are the very same whose smiles mirrored sunbeams behind a curtain of darkness. The same who served you sweet tea, soured in deceit.   ~broken trust

Their cut hearts tangled like shots of Johnnie Walker a whiskey wash a bonfire

A Revelation

It is six a.m.; the quietest time of day It’s when I think of you   The light is softer Cinematic and still, encouraging and lovely Coaxing me to chase memories   I spent all these years waiting for a hero And even in the most difficult chapters of my life, I believed Someone else should hold the power   It is six a.m.; … Read More A Revelation

and sometimes we miss the beautiful truth too busy polishing dusty lies   ~ we shall see

About A Door

Tears slip behind doors. Slammed. Sorrow’s shelter from Storm. Love reigns behind doors. Quiet, stone still. A soft head against a shoulder. Doors close. Locked. Listen as our footsteps flee. Doors whisper, tell the stories of a life.   I’ve fallen hard for old doors. Chippy paint, cracked glass, hand-hewned architecture . Bespoke. ~ A Sunday Moment • Photographed  by my sister x

Fathers and Daughters

  I’ll cradle you in my arms like a small child sleeping Holding fast to your lost flesh Your once muscular body, feather- weight, gone Your heart beat, silent As I carry your ashes home Where is home? An island, Vancouver, Toronto, Australia? It is anywhere we were, anywhere we are.   It is time to set you free To know with certainty, you’ll … Read More Fathers and Daughters

Autumn Light

Kissed by autumn’s softened light I sit at my desk Writing, wondering The moment simple, quiet Surrounded by words and thoughts Tucked away memories A gentle sadness, softened by time Rustles As I cast a spell of silence and peace   The wind whispers your name Rock a bye, rock a bye Siren’s sing you home Rock a bye, rock a bye To a … Read More Autumn Light
