i. The season of winter as it creeps up the palm of your hand, the season of birds as they fly into the moonlight, the glowing silver beneath your feet as the ice tendrils around your grassroot veins. You reach out to the stars and the ground pulls you into … Continue Reading
Floating on a cloud of hydrogen and helium; so featherlight,
I’d gaze at the twilight sky turn into night.
Europa, Ganymede, Io, Titan, Sinope…

I would lay curled up in a coat made of … Continue Reading

Let me tell you the tale today
Of the days when I was considered a gift,

A sensation, a frenzy, a misfit amidst the norms,
Through … Continue Reading
His fingers strum my rustic strings
My core verberates into an ethereal melodic ring.
These soothing pastoral notes make me wonder
‘Bout my lady, swimming off into the money trail yonder.
I hear the soulful yearning in my melancholic A-minor,
It’s inviting her to the charming west, pervaded by … Continue Reading
Let me take you through the lanes of a hype,
Mindless opinions and heartless words to type;
On topics heart wrenching and worse,
