    Let the poems speak for themselves. I choose to express myself in as few words as possible.

    Righteous Parth

    Kind of lonely today; Praying for better mistakes than others I make. 'Thoughts to remember, They keep me insane. I'm discounting the days 'takes to wither 'way. 'Seems I'm s'posed to blame My self-doubting shame. The oars of this canoe go 'soon as they've come. Can you please help, sir; I...

    Space Reimagined

    Failing health’s gravitational pull, lifestyle’s independent abode, depart. Guided, hand to key. Closed door, revealed. Rusted hinge, tarnished lock. Faith, ambition’s promise. Patience, negotiation’s way, stewardship granted. Rafters to cellar, winter solstice of dusty gray. Spider’s veil...

    # 26 See Feel Be

    Making her laugh, my heart sings, sentimentally pulling heart strings, I smile. Tears in her eye, falling from mine. In my office she walked, mask of concern, biopsy, will you come? Messaged team, gotta go. Traffic pace, minds race, gown on, doctors face. Before one needle punched its...

    Creative Quest

    Wrote this one during a writer's workshop years ago when I got stuck in a poetry class. I didn't sign up for it. Did not consider myself a poet, and I really don't write much of it. But as the class I had signed up for was full, they parked me here. I was NOT pleased and I whined, I'm afraid, a...

    Why Birthdays Are Always Special?

I start to get up and wash up As I descent from...

    All Alone In The Dark

    All alone, In the dark, I trusted you, I trusted myself, How did I allow myself to get so close? I'm only a teenager, Yet I know, Love hurts. -Rebekah Michel

    This isn't a prompt, it's a poem I wrote. Sorry bout that. Enjoy, anyway.

    It's like everything is falling apart. It's like tumbling into icy waters and being certain you'll drown. It's like a giant hand is squeezing your heart, squeezing so tightly that it stops beating but you're still alive, still there somehow, watching from the sidelines. It's like you're forever...

    The Corner of my Poems and my Thoughts

    Nothing is as it seems Nothing is as it seems, the Life dresses the things like this, with suits that you have to be able to see for to recognize in them what beats behind, because the life is an artist who, besides knowing to dream, has a point of folly that God loves to forgive. Nada es lo...
