Through the mist of the night, a feeling creeps up through my bones.

A feeling so strong,taking over my body.

A quiver of desperation strikes.

The pain I once had has become alive again, back with a raging force.

Like a snake, slowly making its way, lingering under my feet.

The smell of my body entices it.

Slowly, it swirls through my toes, up my leg, capturing every scent my body has to offer.

It pauses, rests its head on my chest, listening to my beating heart which was quickly growing faster, stronger.

The look in its eyes assures me that it will soon be over.

As it made its way to my neck, a slow, painful feeling hit my entire body.

It immediately goes warm.

The blood rushes to my head, filling it with its last few memories.

The thought of you makes its way to me.

What was once my happiness has become my downfall.

The pain slowly goes away, as a smile sneaks its way across my face.

A quiet “thank you” was uttered as the snake slithered away.

The night was silent again.


Lonely Night

The rain was pounding on the window sill. Lightning flutters the sky. I lay beside you, caress your sweet face. My love is fast asleep. The thunder roles and you jump. Don’t worry, I am right here. Right next to you. Everything will be ok.

I press you face against mine and hymn you a lullaby as you slowly open your eyes. You stare deep into mine and smile. I smile back knowing you are my security, my safe zone.

I kiss your soft, tender lips and you put your hands on my face. Our hearts begin to beat as one, faster and stronger. Your hands are like magic, caressing my every part. Now we are one. Your love is my medicine, my cure, my weakness, my everything. The storm outside is picking up, becoming stronger and more powerful, just like our love. The intensitiy builds. The fire rises.

This is where I belong, always in your arms. Nothing can ever take this away, nothing can break us apart. As our hearts slowly relax, you hold me in your arms and reassure me that this is where I belong. I tell you I love you and you respond forever and always. I kiss my love goodnight not knowing what the morning will bring.

I wake up and I am all alone. I look around in disbelief. Then I realize it was all a dream, reminiscent of what use to be. I sit up and grab the covers. I hold on to it, pretending it was you. I never want to let go. I don’t know how I did. Now I am all alone, for it was just another lonely night.

The Story of a Girl


She was lost.

Foresaken by the one she loved.

Sacrificed everything at all cost.

It was then left to the one up above.

She was heartbroken, down and out for a while.

Tried to push through day by day.

She decided to make a change.

She had to forget about the past,

Meet new people, try new things.

She got use to this fast.

She was excited for what each new day would bring.

One lucky day in the middle of  October,

She met someone and saw a glimmer of hope.

Immediately, she knew things were going to get better.

She took a chance and decided to go.

He seemed very different.

It caught her by surprise.

Their connection was apparent.

No words could describe.

He made her feel special and adored.

This was something she’d been missing.

It’s what she had been waiting for.

She couldn’t resist his hugs and sweet kisses.

He would tell her she’s perfect

And she’d shy away.

But he didn’t know how she felt.

He didn’t know that she felt the same way.

When she looks at him, she sees hope in his eyes,

And finds kindness in his heart.

She is overjoyed and filled with smiles

And becomes sad when they are apart.

She thinks its a dream,

And she doesn’t want to wake up.

But when she does, she meets with reality,

And sees that he is along side with her.

Her special little prize.
