Growing Up

I told you long ago
That I had grown up
Altered for the better
Casually crushing
Your hopes for sympathy

Of youthful lust
And clandestine mistakes
Today
I remember you
As I tell my story
To another one of you
Charming
Caught in a haze
Of blinding allure
Distracted as ever
Perhaps
I have not grown up at all (more…)

He screamed and cried, and I cried too. And somewhere there
I began to see the words and melody that formed on my lips. It was
magic. But the painful kind. (more…)

Starlight

She saw everything in the starlight of another world. She could never make sense of ordinary things. She walked like it was dangerous. She heard only the sound of her own truth. She needed a love that was beyond what this earth could offer. She was made of starlight and she needed starlight love.

He could only give her what was left after fighting all the demons in the background.
