why write?

I have to write what I hear in my head, what I dream in my sleep, what my bones ache to express.

My poems tell stories of strength, love, regret, disobedience, loss, hope, redemption, and whatever whispers to you.

—Cindy B. Stevens

a portion of "my circus"

This stanza is a portion of my poem, titled “my circus” for the next book:
 . . .
my catcher is the morning star
he blinds my daredevil
I inhale his whispered promise
release my panicked grip
fly through a loud hush
my catcher grabs my wrists
