I've got a ceaseless  Desire to thrive, To come out of hell More alive  Than dead, Full of hope, more  Than dread. I want to build the foundation Over again. I want to smooth all the wrinkles In my timeline And fill each  Splendiferous crack with  Sparkling golden wonder. I am the flame that once... Continue Reading →

The Tigers Way

There is a such a place Within my heart Where the mother wound Thrives And on days That celebrate Mother My heart cries, Derision to this day, A farce, A lie! Mother does not mean to me What it does to many. Or at least that is what I used to cry, Mother, oh mother,... Continue Reading →

And when stuttering for words, Trapped in a mouth Repeatedly shut by rage, Anger ignites again in the other And again, more of the same. "Answer me!" "What are you stupid?" "What's wrong with...
