[Poetry] A Postcard From The Other Side

10 o’clock on a New York night,
Surrounded by fairytales and city lights,
I hope this postcard finds you well—
Me? Well, things are finally feeling right.

I watched that musical we wanted to see
Of witches and magic and defying gravity,
You were right, I cried and loved it so—
And in that moment, I set you free.

In the stars, our story will always shine,
A glimpse of all that is rare and divine,
But time moves on and so must I—
Thank you, my love, for being mine.

[Poetry] Pretty

She says she’s not pretty
But if only she knew
The way I bite my lip
When she smiles with hers
The way she teases me
Like a taboo.

She says she’s not pretty
But then her eyes lock on mine
And in them I see
Every reason I need
To know why I lived
All this time.

[Poetry] What We Could Be

He could be the reason I learn to love mornings,
The way the sun plays with the shadows,
The way he smiles when I open my eyes.

I could be the reason he stays up all night,
The way the moon lights up our dance floor,
The way we laugh until sunrise.

We could be each other’s first,
First love that endures past tomorrow.
We could be the happy ending,
But now we’ll never know.

[Flash Fiction] Starlight

“Let’s go into the creepy glowing room, you said.” She grabbed a handful of the green translucent wires hanging from the ceiling and tossed them behind her shoulder, smacking him in the face.

“Agh-!” He rubbed his sore cheek. “Baby girl, those wires actually hurt, you know.”

“Good.”

Chuckling, he slipped his fingers through hers and took off in a run. Continue reading “[Flash Fiction] Starlight”

[Flash Fiction] Cupid’s Park

I fell so deeply for you, my love,
For you were my angel, sent from above.

A couplet adorned the entrance, inviting visitors to Cupid’s Park. Bright green vines hugged the stone pillars on either side. Winding paths and arching trees presented vibrant roses with colors so striking, everyone whispered of magic. Continue reading “[Flash Fiction] Cupid’s Park”

[Poetry] Magic

She’s different from anyone I’ve met before.
That’s cliché, isn’t it?” He laughs as he plays with his tie.
I don’t know, she just-she shakes me to my core.
It’s the blue tie she bought him, to bring out his eyes.

She’s like a breath of fresh air, vibrant and alive,
After I’ve been cooped up for so long.
The world’s thrown everything at her and she survived,
I’ve never seen anyone so strong.Continue reading “[Poetry] Magic”

[Poetry] His Song

The drums were his voice,
Calm waves by the seaside
The piano was the way he’d
Always defend me with pride
The violin was the first time
He leaned in to kiss me
But my favorite part about his song
Was how it played for eternity.

[Poetry] My Secret

I was once a fool in love
Who gave you the greatest secret I owned.
You were once one foot in love
Who turned my great secret to stone.
I am now a woman wiser in love
Who keeps her secret under lock and key.
He is a man truly in love
Who guards my secret unwaveringly.

[Poetry] Butterfly

One touch-
The butterfly peeked out of her cocoon.
One glance-
Her wings fluttered to a crescendoing tune.
One hello-
In all her excitement, she fell in a swoon.
One chance-
Her new life’s beginning, and not a moment too soon.
