My brain is mush
Muddled with thoughts of yesterday and the tomorrow that hasn’t quite made it to the day’s rays of sunlight .
My mind is clouded with sleep- the cobwebs outstretched their tentacles and I […]
Solidarity. I’m with you. I thought I would get a second wind by now, but I’m running out of steam too. You’re still doing good though.
I officially made it, as I only signed up for the half marathon. I was trying to push myself to do the whole. I didn’t succeed as I fell asleep very shortly after posting this one. How did you fare? I hope you were successful!
I am done.
I think this marathon has one.
I accomplished what I set out to do
12 hours of poetry
In that I have succeeded
Soon, I will be fast asleep
Maybe i will wake early and play catch up […]
It is normally midnight
When everything shuts down
If you’re in the club, this doesn’t happen til damn near two.
But not tonight.
That isn’t what happened at all.
I got all gussied up,
Over my […]
Finally. The pitter patter of little feet are heard only in the echo of my memory.
I am an entertainer and it is time to put on the mask that hides Kim and creates Special K.
This is what I long for during […]
I’m late for a very i.portant date
Like the White Rabbit,
I am often scurrying to and fro
Usually with multiple children in tow.
And it never fails,
No matter where I’ve hurried off […]
I am the kind if girlfriend who learns your Buttons
I know when it is okay to have some fun and push them.
I know when you’re not in the mood to play and this best to keep my button pushing at […]
Why did I do I do this?
Was it because I thought I could deliver some creative justice
To a world that is hurting, its black and blue bruises starting to show through?
What made me think my voice could […]
My name isn’t Sam.
I won’t pester you to eat
Foods that have somehow managed to survive years beyond their shelf life.
I won’t ask you to do silly things like give mice cookies or milk in […]
My brain is starting to hurt.
My mind is weary.
I’m not sure I’m doing this right.
New stuff is scary.
It’s like standing naked in front of an audience and you’re all hairy- especially if you’re prone […]
Everyone has experienced it on some level.
No one’s trauma is greater than someone else’s.
No one can tell anyone else how their personal trauma should affect them.
A month ago, trauma found […]
Everything is closing in.
I live in a castle, with gargantuan rooms
And regal tapestries
But, I’m feeling more like Rapunzel-
Trapped in a tower
In this state, I have no power
The more I […]
So many years had gone by
It didn’t feel like you’d missed any moments away
You encouraged me
And when it was time for goodbyes
Arms extended to embrace you in a hug
Grabbed nothing but […]
These past few weeks have had me thinking I hadn’t done anything right.
Friends, partners and associates, alike had me questioning if the path I was on, was the right flight.
I, who had love for everyone, […]
