wearing the dark of your soul 
and the red of your blood
together with stylish flair 
to divert from the truth 
with cuteness.

the art of breathing
even when you think you can't catch your breath.

paradise lost

when love loses its ability to trust.

combat boots

any shoes
from sneakers to heels
worn into the battlefield of daily life
to wade secretly brave through
hip deep and rising mud.

looking for answers
in the tangled jungle
of your heart.

when hansel lets go of gretel's hand,
and leaves her to battle the woods alone.

the ghost heart
close enough to feel,
and be afoot,
but unable to touch
beyond causing goosebumps,
or speak to you,
beyond shadow whispers
from just out of view.
