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

embrace

Most of my poems are concise, therefore my posts more so, as I don’t share entire poems here, unless they’re already published.  Here are six lines from “embrace”:


I spill sorrow

gasp my want to recall a breath of joy

I’m surprised by warmth I can’t remember

 

mercy seals my fissures

tempers broken me

my savior blankets them around my struggle
