    Every year
    With words upon the page
    Has never not been a challenge
    This year is different

    It has been a week
    Of flooding
    Plains of land filled with water
    Sudden laking of river

    Aftermath of flooding,
    Keeping towns completely cut off

    Writing can be both blessing
    And curse

    Writing can be itself flooding
    An escape to the chaos
    Writing time to forget
    Forgetting everything, processing things

    Writing and reading
    Make others feel not alone
    Even in moments such as these

    Isolated from others
    Water rushing by a front door

    Storytelling is how to make sense of the world
    We need them now more than ever

    Process or escape
    Good or bad times
    Fortitude and understanding

    These will resonate
    With someone
    Somewhere

    They
    You
    We are not alone

    August

    The realization that your love was never safe, never set in stone, all an illusion that could crumble the next time you leaned on it.

    The way you put your heart and soul into a love that was never real.

    Thinking back on the short time in which you believed you had love, that it would last forever.

    Thinking about how much you relied on your own perception.

    It’s an anthem about the pain of memories that shouldn’t have been memories.

    It’s a story about falling head over heels and losing it all in a second, about taking for granted everything you have, and thinking it would last forever and you would never lose it.

    It’s about looking back and wishing you had said it, made them yours permanently.

    It’s about pain and broken trust and confusion.

    It’s about wondering how you ever let love like that slip through your fingers.

    A church is just a
    Sacred cave
    Where there is no echo
    Just tepid hopeful silence

    Some days I just want to
    Sit and stare at the wall

    I can’t be bothered to
    Do anything

    The malaise of being alive
    Is almost so boring

    I get unhelpful urges
    Wanderlust cravings
    To just take off to
    Anywhere at all

    Why must I be so obstinate,
    So contrite to be contrite
    The itching burning under feeling
    To just get out of dodge

    Prolapsed

    I wait and I wait
    Minutes are slow in the fall
    I listen to rain
    Wonder whether to call

    I wonder and I wonder
    The screen unchanged
    I write during
    The feeling is strange

    I feel and I feel
    Just when to give it away
    To close the laptop
    Or just wait and stay
