In the midst of the town, an inventor,
Old and frail, but still, reluctantly, alive;
Inventions unlike others – nearly human.
One in particular, a cute white doll,
Resembling his long lost wife,
Wipes stains noisily everyday,
Reminding him of...
Piles of mush, once icy white
Now discolored and soft
Resting on the field.
Where is the cold fortress?
Dreadful moments in the snow,
Numb fingers and a red face.
I was longing for warmth.
That was when the sun came.
Summer is like a desert, wherever you are.
A vast emptiness filled with boundless potential.
All activity comes to a static nothing.
Stillness of the morning
becomes the skirring of the day
becomes the stillness of the night.
I’ve fallen in love with writing.
The rhythmic tapping of keys,
The faint scribbling of a pen,
The sound of an eraser taking away the mistakes that were born to become masterpieces.
It gave me a voice.
There was a knock on my window
On that long chilly night
Then a creak from the floorboards
Outside my door
There was a crash
And a bump
My entire body jumped as the shadows
Turned as restless as the morgue

Her head was the lightning filled sky.
Anxiety and thunder coursing through her veins,
Blood substituted by sadness,
The fast beating of her heart as scattered as the rain,
Trembling hands echoed the waves...
