I’m blinded by love and hate.
In loving you, I hate myself.
I’m bond by hate and love.
Your hate makes it hard to breathe,
so I love you, hoping it’ll be enough.
The Queen of Hearts never wanted children
but when she met Alice,
She had spent a lifetime making mistakes,
cheating on her husband, and eating too much,
but what was she to do during […]
Stars used to dance and fall in love.
They dreamed during the day
and told stories throughout the night.
They were friends with the moons and
guardians of the plants.
Comets taught the stars to shine
America is lost and
no longer knows herself,
but truly did she ever?
Land of the white and
home of the male.
My skin is a traitor,
my body a prisoner.
When we we have been d […]
The greatest love story I know is
Harley Quinn and the Joker.
They pick each other again and again and again.
No matter how violent or volatile or unhealthy,
they keep slowly killing each other.
We are […]
Once, you had cotton candy princess hair.
You had butterflies in your tummy and
noble intentions made your heart beat.
You had a soft voice, giggly laugh, and couldn’t
ever remember where you p […]
I loved: “Once, you had cotton candy princess hair.”
And this part I appreciated too: “can’t seem / to let your Iphone out of your hand long enough for it to cool.”
I like how you turned the prompt around to be a letter to you now, reminding you of who you once were – the descriptions of who you were before being turned upside down and inside out to describe who you are now. Clever and poignant! Yes – ‘Breath some music and eat some words.’
In the darkness of the Underworld,
a faded hush fills the lungs of every soul.
Moonbeams light the way
for a little goddess to tiptoe alongside
purple Water Lilies and peachy pink Lotuses.
Persephone wrists […]
I have this tiny, little, guilty pleasure.
Sometimes, I don’t look where I’m going,
and I make men walk around me.
You see, it’s funny because they
walk right through me instead
They cut me off, and I apolo […]
In Neverland, all parts of our childhood hide:
the boy of our youth, the girl of our dreams, and the man of our nightmares,
living by sun and moon, land and sea, adventure and book.
In Neverland, selfishness […]
In this sea full of strangers,
apologies leak from my mouth,
surmounted by an ocean of guilt and shame.
I am not who they made me to be.
I am not delicate or tender.
Thick, dark, cruel waves crash […]
Nothing is stronger than a mother’s love.
She is witch and woman.
Maternal horror and nightmare to all.
When blood creeped down
Rapunzel’s legs, her mother knew
It was time.
“A room is a small thing […]
In tarot, the three of swords
warns of conflict, sorrow, and heartache.
Three sharpened swords pierce a heart
at three harsh angles.
Brother. Father. You.
I can feel the three of swords pulse in my […]
I am the distant, divorced, defiant daughter
of parents who persistently ponder
why I can’t just settle for simple.
I trust these trouble-makers to tell
me the honest, blunt truth.
I married simple, and s […]
Heavy rock guitar strains on a $5 speaker three floors down.
Smogged marijuana smoke clouds drift higher than my neighbors.
Cumin and garlic marinate this entire apartment complex.
Little clacks from this […]
She always loved witchcraft.
She performed little acts of magic over her lifetime:
making it rain (just a simple dance and chant),
bringing a child back to life (nothing like Pet Sematary, sorry […]
Persephone whispered to the flowers, “I am lonely.”
How quickly a plea becomes a confession of guilt.
Surrounded by sun, friends, and mother. Looked after by
A far away father.
Yet, she sits-
Pining for mor […]
