There is no normal–

regarding relationships:

they are what they are.

Stop! Take a deep breath…

(when I feel all prickly,

Meditation helps).

 


 

Haikus

If you’re deserted,

You can have extra dessert.

Permission granted.

 


 

Haikus

Parents Don’t know how

to give children what they need;

they learn or they don’t.

 


 

Haikus

Those silver linings

make space for my eyes to see

my own shooting stars.

 


 

INFJ

Everything I know

can/will be used against me

I’m INFJ

 


 

Haikus

I stitch up my wounds,

Nobody does that for me–

That’s not how life works.

 


 

Haikus

What do I mean by

“permanent melancholy?”

Just get to know me.

 


 

Haikus

 

Like a horror film,

sometimes all I see is loss

…suffocating me.

 


 

Haikus

 

Don’t know where you are.

Doesn’t matter anymore,

I know who you are.

 


 

Haikus

This is who I am:

perfection personified;

an orchid in bloom

I remember now–

there’s a part of me that soars–

her name is Bird Ann

She only saw me,

not some version of herself;

she loved the real me.

He’s not mine to own.

I was made to protect him

before I was born.

 


 

Always with despair,

sometimes I think I can count

my friends on one hand…

Haikus

Then I remember:

you keep your friends in your heart.

I’m never alone.

There’s no turning back,

I landed among the stars;

nothing can stop me.

Are human beings like leaves?

Stay together and flourish

or else blow away?

Robin Williams’ Mork

allowed me to be myself,

don’t ever forget.

I’m a storm trooper,

but like Harrison Ford, though,

just playing the game.

You can count on me

to make your situation

something we call we.

 


 

IMG_5847

Nobody can hurt

the person I am today;

yesterday built me.

 


 

Haikus

My strong tradition

of not caring about me

has come to an end.

 


 

IMG_6145

I dream of a world

where feminism is cool;

mutual respect.

 


 

IMG_5327

Restricting water,

on top of restricting food,

is no way to live.

 


 

Haikus

Meant to tell you guys:

leaving without a goodbye,

that murdered my soul.

 


 

IMG_6120

Take my hate for me,

it’s like a deer in the road–

comes out of nowhere.

Am I grieving still?

When it comes to family,

it’s never over.

 


 

IMG_5843

Don’t care who you are,

my light is not yours to take;

you have to earn it.

 


 

IMG_5820

Get away from me–

you people sucking me dry

of my love and light.
