Millage

I often think about the roads that lead us to each other,The miles and miles of distance we crossed,For us to chance upon each other,The lives lived, the failed relationships,To bring us here.

Broken promises and empty words are not the currency of my heart. I spent a lifetime waiting and anticipating for love to be an example to me, but it never came.

Forces of Nature

When it rains,Is mother nature shedding a tear for the world she’s lost?The same way I cry over what we no longer have?Each teardrop, a vessel for the love we shared,Carried off and discarded in the soiled Kleenexes on the floor,When there’s a storm, Is it another lesson in not suppressing the turbulence I feel…
