The flip side of joy...can't seem to have one without the other. Any kind...5/7/5 it.

cruelest fate prevents
the joining of our two lives...
the rings and the vow
your heart pounds your ribs
you think it will burst its cage...
love in a red mist
an ache in my chest
feels like I can't breathe or move
mysterious angst
Depression sinks in
That consuming beast again
Please, please, please move on.
that consuming beast
without fuel from negative
starves and left behind

a chance encounter...

reality belies hope

dark clouds threaten rain


feel like a grenade

fell into my hopes and dreams

and blew up my world

there's just no more room

my heart has reached its threshold

this, how broken feels

broken hearts can heal

shattered dreams don't fare as well

tread forward brave soul

sharp intake of breath

unexpected encounter

reduced to shadow


leaving silently

clearing the way without fuss...

i wish you'd object

opisthenar swings

unknown why it comes at me

I will duck next time
