Mountain Climber

Sitting at the top of the mountain is never quite as interesting as climbing the mountain.

Self Deception

We tell ourselves lies all the time.
Little lies that cover up fears, insecurities.
Lies that make us feel better.
That obscure the truth.
All so we don't see what it is we are avoiding. That which we fear most.


When you lose someone close to you, someone you love,
There is a silence, deafening, like nothing else.
An absence, a void.
No more conversations, moments or hugs.
A part of your world is missing.
A piece you held so dear.
Nothing can replace them.
There will never be another quite like them.
Inhabiting a place in your heart, your memories and dreams.
The dearly departed, forever lost,
their energy, their life force, returning to the dust.

Dry spell

I want to know why I can't cry
Why the pain rises up inside
The burning knot in my core
There are no tears, just the eternal gnaw
Eating me up and spitting me out
Seems I'm in another drought
