Throwback to Poetry!

Throwback to Poetry! The limited edition is now down to TWO COPIES remaining. Thank you for those who support my work and I truly hope you enjoy the stories unfolded by each and every poem.

An Excerpt from Ghost Load-Second Edition: Yes, the story behind this is a whimsical freestyle, finding the areas where NO, can be just as powerful and necessary as YES.

Yes, rests on my tongue,
Locked behind pressed lips. 
No is easier,
No is harder,
No is colder than Alaska, Hotter than Mount Everest
No is thicker than fog,

I tried yes, and opened shells in your speech
I tried yes, held tight to fate, thinking the unchangeable
I tried yes, stared rejection in the face, fought tears
Cause crying leaves infected possibilities,

I tried yes, laughed, smiled, dreamed, grew,
Yes allowed me to travel, gave a bit more, and yet reserved enough for what if…
Laid naked, like shifted wheat, flaws and all,
Bared troubles on my sleeve and search gazed pupils for remembrance and security.

No made me a little stronger, and a lot weaker
No taught me what I do and don’t do
No, the young girl inside that often feels pain even when it’s not there
No is easier than yes, but hurts when right is deemed wrong out of fear,
No combats the heartbeat, that motions, only to one drum

Yes can be sweet like strawberry lollipops
Yes can be the embrace of innocence
Yes can be the smile of needing no words for completion
Yes can be the cording lines of gemology
Yes can be knowledge without explanation
Guess, I got to question less and live more
Yes, can be ever
No can be never
Maybe I’m the cause of the transformation of Ever to Never.

"Often times we choke our existence from past experiences,

foreshadowing our future.

Premeditated expectations,

predetermined destinations off relinquished regrets..."
