The Circle of Fights


Trouble is growing
Anger is boiling
Tempers are heating
Hearts are beating
Some are crying
Many are lying
Yet this deceit
Shall always repeat


The Inner Circle


I stood on the ledge of the 80 story building staring into the black sky.
Behind me I could here Josh giving one of his damn speeches again.
“…it’s a fight for us, a fight for our generation. They took everything from us…”
I sighed.
How did I get roped into this?

Winter Heart


The windows have begun to frost
Freezing our fingers at the touch
Our breath has begun to fog
To shroud our faces for a tenth of a second
To give us curious non smokers an illusion of what it’s like to smoke

To shield our fragile bodies from the shivering cold
It’s the time for cuddling not just for affection but for warmth
Coffee, hot chocolate, and tea have turned into a need
Sitting by the heater with a big cup of coffee and a book has become a sport
It’s a lovely time of year, winter
So don’t let the cold get to you
Because we can always find a way to the warmth

She needed to see what broken glass looked like in the light

Years of finding a way out of her misery

She was finally able to realize

That her prison wasn’t made by her enemies,

It was created by her

Unbeknownst to her she had built a house

A house where she kept herself hidden

A house where only she could see what was inside

For she was the one who held the key

And now because of her own will,

Her own power,

She wasn’t going to just open the glass door

She was going to shatter the walls that kept her in.

The sun had begun to rise

And with a smile upon her face

So had she
