Staring at the screen
Like a falling tree
in an empty forest,
is there a sound
when you weep alone...

I think it's goodbye
A beautiful blue vase
had been sitting on a table in front of me for years,
but one day it fell off
and it's ever so slowly
tumbling to the ground.
But I don't know if the ground
is carpet or stone,
and I don't know if I should hope
that it will merely bounce off plush fabric,
or if I should do something
to prevent it from shattering
into a million pieces
that cannot possibly be put together again.
If I move too fast
I could myself smash it,
or maybe I could catch it
but as I tried to put it back on the table
I might drop it again,
but if I never did anything
except hope
I could never forgive myself
if I were wrong.
I wish I knew more,
or could do better,
because only then could I surely save
such a beautiful blue vase...

Literature
Everything's gonna be all right
Walk into the bathroom,
leave the light off,
turn on the shower,
keep it on cool,
step in,
just stand there,
close your eyes,
forget the day,
lean back your head,
rock it side to side,
feel the pulsating spray,
open your eyes,
look out the obscured glass,
watch the day's final distorted light fade,
turn back,
hear nothing but the water,
realize it's the simple things that are sometimes the most precious...

Browsing
I am now free,
and no longer hidden,
to enter this space
that I was once forbidden.
Colors and textures,  
whatever I want to express,
no one is here anymore
to police or oppress.
I walked past a sea of collars
on the other side
and saw a distant me
who I thought had died.
And remembered how much I yearned
for anything other than light blue,
and continued to hold
the secret that no one knew.
I wondered for a moment
if I'd've figured out how,
had I not started down this road,
and found peace and true love by now.
Is it fear or stupidity
or doubt or regret
to think there are things
that I will never get?
I am still free
To re-enter this space
But there is still a mask
covering my smiling face.

Reconciliation
To finally emerge from the desert,
after years of thirst and doubt.
To follow that image reflecting off the endless sands,
that ray of light piercing through the dark,
and wonder when you would be able to touch it.
To survive and discover
that it was a mirage.
To wonder if you had chosen a different path,
or made it out faster,
would it have still slipped through your fingers.
To imagine if you had known in the beginning
that it wasn't real,
would you still be where you started...
