Singapore Parents

Hot Damn. I was watching a news report on a 40 year old autistic man in Singapore, and holy shit his parents are good people. They were honest about their struggles, but found good in every situation. They found it positive, saw their boy as beautiful, caring, loving. The father even said it was a …

Drops of Saline Stars

Her eyes Still, deep pools of brown Awash in warm tears Drops of saline stars – Hidden within the calm reflection A tempest brews Of a thousand laughs Balanced on a scale of hurt – When beheld by such countenance To see myself in such calm lagoons Is to be lost to myself Awash in …

She Distant, Beautiful

She lies on her bed distant and beautiful her head rests on my old pillow hair cascading down  silky and black – Her almond eyes move following images across the screen deep and brown eye which once bored deep into my soul – The sheets hug her body holding each curve close I once held …

Duces Wild and Wild Duces

We grabbed each others’ hands and started to run. It was one of those ecstatic moments you can’t quite recreate and you think only happen in movies. We laughed and ran towards the end of the pier. The beer flowed through our veins and the late afternoon sun kissed our faces. Before us laid the …
