There are times when writing feels more like art and poetry is a song for the soul.

We are Gods

We were Gods. Our light traveled without boundaries or binds, Through infinite dimensions and galaxies beyond our current comprehension. We were Gods. We shaped time and space like blunt tools, Knowing all, seeing all, being part of the collective peace now foreign, now coveted. We were Gods. Ever-expanding in knowledge and reason. But to know […]

Humility and Pride

He stood atop his golden stage and screamed to those below. The people bowed and praised his form but it was all a show. He demanded their affection, and basked in every prayer, But underneath the singing praise, none of them could care. He wanted more to love him; he demanded every heart, But his […]

The Standard of Life Well Lived

The following is my submission for the How Well: Creative Challenge. *Medium Members can view it here. In youth we learn success means more, judged by the collections we amass.

The Awakening

My weary mind passed through into another world, another time. The visions that enchanted me were morose, but yet sublime. Through forests deep and intricate my aching heart could roam, and silent whispers called to me and told me I was home It seems I walked for ages, when I saw a wondrous sight, and […]

Concord

A fate of a twisted moon beyond becomes a love’s dedication song to weld the soul’s brittle bond. To see how harsh winter’s wind still blows a distance traveled desert rose come to cease my adverse prose. Row upon row of anguished hearts a battle to find true love imparts to vanquish pain’s dramatic arts. […]
