Chasing Dreams

A cold breeze whips her hair across her face, cigarette smoke fills the empty space between the two
Sitting under a starless wintery sky, she pours herself another glass..
I hear it.. I hear the torturess breaking of her delicate heart, as she wipes the snot from her nose roughly with the back of her hand..

“You know what my problem is?” She mutters under her whiskey-ridden breath..

“I seek a man that moves my being,” She inhales slowly; unsteadly, “But do you know what I fear with that?”

And without waiting for an answer, she looks me dead in the eye, almost pleading – a fleeting desire to be understood.. A single, lonely tear crawls down her cheek

“What if he doesn’t exist? What if I am chasing a dream?”


Your Laughter, Your Smile

Your smile, I knew
I wanted to fall in love with
Day in and day out
For the rest of
My existence.
And I don’t want to spend any more
Wasted moments
Without the sound of
Your laughter
Resonating in my


I will build me a fabulous palace with the words that you used to make me smile
Then I shall send each one up in flames with the words you used to watch me bleed
As long as in the end, I’m watching all that you hold dear
