Before I get to the poetry, I’d like to share an assignment I had for my college spring semester: interviewing someone in my field to learn about the field and how to succeed in it. Of course, I had to many people to choose from, so I picked on that I’ve loved for a long […]

Between Our Lungs

A shot of vodka might to the trick Because after tonight, I’ve lost my click My niche, my passion, and my pride Kissed away by your heartache tonight Every time I’m with you, I get dragged down By your bottomless pit and decadent breath Always wishing for me to bring you up Show you the […]

Misery Loves Me

You don’t want the light in No You’d rather be miserable Getting attention from everyone around The support stemming from desperation Is almost worth being desperate And penniless piles of weak smiles Forced laughter On top of a melancholy life Are washed away for only moments at a time The encouragement and support Hardly outweigh […]
