I saw you between the kaleidoscopic tears and wretched veins. I kept my distance and harbored the burnt edges of my existence. I clashed with harmony and my own walls that I have personally built. I stand between your denial and my built up frustrations. I walk away to hold on to my sanity knowing my dreams will never come true. I live for you. I live for what I love not the picket fences you created. I always thought love was elastic.


Check out my books!


  1. god. This. Yes.
    As I read through this, ensconced in the magic of the words, the vision created. My heart stopped beating for a moment at “I live for you.” That one simple statement defines and encompasses, begins and ends this poem. And there it is, in the middle. Four little words. But, oh how powerful.
    Thank you for this.
