  • A survivor of your own accord
Life allocated you pain which would make anyone else want to jump overboard 
Mistreated by those who vowed to keep you safe 
Feeling so hopeless, relocating from place to place 
Traveled the seven seas
Only to be bound instead of being set free
Binding all your hopes into the idea of with time it will get better
Only to find with each new hurdle, life keeps getting harder and harder.
Tired of waiting for someone to come and rescue you
Deciding to be the hero you need to break through.
Working endless hours to build a better life
Hoping all this effort wouldn't end in strife.
A little girl who wouldn't go past the corner of her street
Is now a woman thriving in a foreign country. ~ Excerpt from "Mom"

In the evening
Inner lives illuminate 
While darkness falls
Slowly from the heavens 
Mere mortals 
Boxed like chocolates 
In buildings that line the horizon
Like supermarket shelves

Why do they live 
Like the sky is not infinite
As if gravity were the only 
Force of nature?
Is desire a flame
Barely lit at sunrise
Easily snuffed at sunset
And hardly seen in between?

Will you be bold?
Bold enough to descend 
The staircase to take my hand
And run from all this order
Toward something that looks
Less like disorder and more like life 
Towards something that feels 
Less like a betrayal and more like love

  • (Strange Roads - Part 1)
.
Joan took one last look at her notes, at the scrawl of dead languages that she had hastily transcribed after waking from the dream.
.
It had been so real. The tree rising like a thousand mountains. The sea stretching to infinity. The worlds stacked and overflowing.
.
The dark god hanging by his neck from a dead branch, whispering his lore to her across time.
.
She had woken in a fever, her hands marking the paper with the sacred words while the taste of ashes filled her mouth.
.
Her magic was usually weak, a shadow to conn rich folks to keep her comfortable.
.
Now it rolled through her like a wakened leviathan stirring the sea. She felt every cell of her body alive with the power.
.
It frightened her.
.
Excited and afraid, she took a deep breath and began to read the words aloud.
.
The walls blurred, her mind opened, and pain tore into her body with talons of fire.
.
Above her own screaming, she heard something else rising like smoke over her burning body.
.
It was the dark god, laughing.
.
The pain ceased. She opened her eyes.
.
