tHe NaTuRe Of SoMe PrEtTy ThInGs


ocean tides roar
my feelings explode

red is anger
i can’t control

this nature
the nature of me

there’s still beauty
the pretty things

feelings explode
i can’t control

the fault in me
i must forgive

  1. Feelings that wash
    Away on a tide

    Caught in a storm
    I cannot ride.

    Sweetness and sweat
    Like glitter reside

    In this heart of mine
    In this storm of mine
    That I cannot hide.

    Lovely, in a dark, visceral way. The plainness of the language belies the emotion roiling within.
    Keep penning magic.
