Dear Words, I am writing through you to you because you are the only things that are capable of making a poet fall to her knees – and I don’t claim to be a poet in a way Wordsworth or Plath would approve of, but my knees are scuffed and bloody for you, and because of you.  Words, I […]

Dear you, Dear you and dear me. I love our dynamic; it works perfectly for us. Pacifist that I am and storm that you are, polar opposites cut from cloth and steel.

Her long dress no longer seemed long, it seemed as though it was a tiny kitchen towel. One that’s would never be […]

To whom it no longer concerns:   I’d probably make a better prostitute than I do a writer, and I blame you for that. Was the pain you caused my heart not enough to satisfy you, so you aimed at my mind? You have wronged me in so many ways that shouldn’t be humanly possible. […]

Dear Universe;   I write you this in a form of an apology, I hope you get it. I am incredibly sorry. I write you this on behalf of my people, we are your children and we have done you wrong. We have caused you nothing but pain, we have disturbed your peace and though I know […]
