Deflowered

shining in the rain, 

dancing through the pain, 

singing in a field of weeds.

to take me to the prom,

where we twist and twirl

under twinkling dollar store stars

and a paper moon.

 

Happy memories pop up

among technicolor...

New Year Addiction

Those few seconds before the new year

when the countdown begins,

my soul soars with so much hope and joy.

When the ball drops at Times Square,

there is a momentary

return to innocence.

As the confetti flies and music fills the air,

I imagine we are a world at peace...

no worries, no violence, no division,

just a few beautiful seconds of clarity and simplicity

that dis...
