I can see the pain written on the canvas of your heart.  Believe me when I say I have tried to understand what has happened, but  I won’t pretend to know what you have been through.  I just wish it was me and not you. Please know I wish it was me and not you. Everyone deserves moments of peace where th...

Sleep and drowsiness clouded his vision as Eli realized the time visible on the clock in front of him. He bolted upright, stumbled out of bed, and began scrambling for clothes. “I can’t be late, not again,” Eli muttered to himself as he stumbled out the door without grabbing a bite to eat. Eli...

Monday. She remembers his face so clearly Like a swift breath of air Except the air was not fresh No, it was a breath of cigarette smoke Life threatening, cloudy, yet she kept coming back for more   Tuesday. She remembers when they spoke The words flowed out of his mouth...

Jerry was a fidgety man with a face that made people nervous to look at--not because it was intimidating by any means, but because of a characteristic twitching of the corner of his mouth at odd intervals.  He was short and balding, although with the amount of time he spent fixing his hair each morn...

The sun’s descent beneath the clustered buildings of Paris gave confidence to all night’s shadows, even the most fickle in spirit, and they drew to huddle amongst the tattered scraps of paper and piled dust on the streets.  Huddled, too, against the back of a young man, barely upon the age of eight-and-ten,...

She had fallen in love with him slowly, over the course of four squandered years.  He had loved her from the minute he saw her, and had vowed never to leave her, regardless of the reason. He had repeated that vow so many times that she had come to take it for granted, to take him for granted.  Now,...

During the brief period of time between summer and winter, when the sun began to fade, and the first flurries of snow fell from the clouds, I stepped through the threshold of some mysterious place.   I can’t tell you exactly what day it was, or who led me there, but I can...

I remember that day, Fresh lake water Sloshing onto the shore. The sun glistening softly On the horizon. Woods buzzing with life, But ever so gently.   I remember that day, Sandy feet And sunburned skin. Flames dancing joyfully In the fire pit. Hammocks swinging In...

They say happiness is a choice. So, I used to wonder: Is sadness a choice as well? Happiness is a positive emotion, something I know you strive for. Happiness is laughing with friends, seeing your excited dog after a long day or hearing “your song” come on during a party. Happiness is a natural emotion...

The storm threw the ship violently back and forth. The pirates were in a frenzy, scrambling around like mice chased by a cat. After he retched over the port, one of the men noticed a distant island and pointed at it, shouting over the din of the storm to the rest of his crew. They clustered at the end...

The following are three poems that I have written. They all follow a central theme of love; however, I always try to keep my creative writing ambiguous in order to allow more people to relate to it. My personal favorite of these three is definitely Sunday Morning, but I hope you enjoy all of them!     The Road I Ta...
