Word Vomit: Weak Flesh, Faithful Heart

The mind and spirit are strong with love The body weak with lust Heart resisting temptation The flesh craving sinful touch   Yearning for that connection, yet fearing that imprinting glance The body shudders, mind imagines; Carnal pleasures to be had   Heart says no, he’s not for you Body says come closer Both battle; wage war, for what they cannot have   Love wins the war this time; Forces body to await her lover’s...

Breaking the Bottle #9

After we spread grandma’s ashes and things in the yard, and I’d had some time to heal, I decided that it would be a good time to go back up north to Chicago.

Word Vomit: Again

On her soul, darkness sets in blades dance across her skin, as droplets faintly waltz to the floor   Pains she thought she’d let go again take their hold She’s again prisoner to her mind   She searches for light from within Only to fall into the shadows of past Her demons, they’re winning agian   A glance in the mirror reveals a face she recognizes no longer A ghost of a woman, her empty shell A stronger one of what she’s become   She holds back her tears, Closes her eyes and covers her ears as the screams...
