Lounging on a beach, drinking a fruity drink, feeling a sunburn slowly bloom across my skin, take a dip in the push and pull of the ocean, watch as people play frisbee, walk their dog, or splash about. Sand inbetween my toes, sand in my hair, sand in my mouth, sand in my bikini bottoms. … Continue reading 29


Sweat gleams and slides across my skin. As I sit there in a pool of my own sweat, I breath in and out, waiting for my heartbeat to slow. The heat surrounds and sits over me heavily. I close my eyes, letting my mind go quiet.


Don't you love, walking into a familiar home? Maybe it's your parents, or your grandparents, your cool aunt's, or a just a close friend's house. But it's familiar, and it has been for as long as you can remember. The garage code is the same, the couch melds to your body perfectly, and you can … Continue reading 31


The temperature climbs above 60 degrees, for the first time in a long, snowy winter. The whole town is in t-shirts, shorts, and dresses. Music blasting, dancing in the sunshine.

A stranger you don't know, a person you've never met. Its in moments of weakness that you turn away from this gaze, Its in moments … Continue reading 36


Your expression is detatched and omniscient, but you're a face I've always known. They've built military bases, mansions and shopping malls at your feet-- I wonder if that bothers you much. In autumn golden freckles adorn your cheeks, in winter frosty snow details every inch and crevice of your figure. And in summer, you dazzle … Continue reading 37


Snuggled on the couch, Enveloped in its folds, My eyes become drowsy. Cozy and warm am I— All is quiet as the candle burns through its wick. How lovely to be alone, In one’s apartment. Peaceful and content, But I’d better go to bed, or else I’m going to be sleeping on this couch.
