Echo

What I saw from
Above you,
Of you,
Is what I see
Into you,
To you.

How could you ever
Fancy me?
See me.
You’re all I want
Before me,
For me.

Yet if you don’t
Believe me,
Leave me.
I saw all the lies
My ego threw you
Go through you.

I see the truth
In you– no, me.
You know me.
And I’ve known this,
For a while, of you:
I love you.

Walking Paradox

I don’t have a clue who I am,
But I know exactly what I want.

I want to act selfish sometimes,
But I like being seen as a nice person.

I want to prove myself an individual,
But I care too much what other people think.

I want to share my interests,
But I’m afraid I’ll annoy people with them.

I want to be offered help,
But I get angry when I can’t do things by myself.

I want to talk about my problems,
But I don’t want to burden anyone.

I want people to know me well,
But I hate being predictable.

I want everyone to know how I’m feeling
Without me having to tell them.

I want close friendships
Without the effort of maintaining them.

I want to pour my heart out
While still being mysterious.

I want to be loved by everyone
Without giving a damn what anyone thinks of me.

I don’t have a clue what I want,
But I know exactly who I am:
A walking paradox.

New Year’s Countdown

Ten seconds to midnight
Nine minutes walked to the beach
Eight free viewing spots by the ocean
Seven waves to jump for good luck
Six family members huddled on the sand
Five fireworks shows along the shore
Four wishes of successful new endeavors
Three more New Year’s resolutions
Two promises of love yet unbroken
One more year begins!


Happy New Year! May you all have a wonderful 2016!

Nous Sommes Unis

Hear the silence in the streets,
Feel the sorrow in the air
In the chilling aftermath
Of the night of terror
That left the world in shock.

See the world shine bright
In blue, white and red.
Let them know we are united
As we support our allies
In this tragic time for humanity.

France, we stand with you now
In this solemn hour.
Against hate and violence,
In the name of love and peace,
Nous sommes unis.


Wrote this poem shortly after the attacks in Paris on November 13. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims of the tragedy. May love always triumph over hate. We stand with you, France. #NousSommesUnis

Why I Miss You

It was the best month of my life.
We always have fun together.
We think alike.
You make me laugh.
You brighten my days.
I feel safe with you.
I enjoy your company.
I’m the best version of myself around you.
You give the best hugs.
You give the best kisses.
You love me.
I love you.

For all these reasons and more,
I miss you terribly.
But time has a way of passing quickly,
And I know we’ll be together again soon.

Until then, I’ll wait impatiently for the day
When I can fall back into your arms
And I never have to miss you again.
