FETAL POSITION IN THE ER
death, heartbreak, my child,
Broken but disbelieving, we wait
for any doctor to say it’s just blood
as the gray man greens, throws-

allusion, anxiety, child, dark,
Nightfall begins. It's beautiful, magical,
even astonishing. The grueling, long
process of avoiding my dreams.
So many bad thoughts from the books I read
right before bed. ...
baby, beautiful, birth, growing
My demeanor, the aftermaths of recklessness

Life is but a dream
adventure, celebration, child, dream,
Is this life but a dream?
I once wondered to myself, in this life
Will we really find true happiness,
A place to which we can escape,
appreciation, best friend, child,
He looked out at the snow and ice,
As a cold wind whistled winter
Through the door, bringing hope
Of making a real-life snowman,
A special friend for a...

To chart new territories somewhere
So the mother looks to God for strength

The Little Prince of Our House
child, family, home, inspirational,
Our excitement to have you in our life
That you deserve a regal retreat inside our house
This once dark room spruced up with chic bedroom
child, faith, hope, morning,
Words on a page, sounds, Mother's calling
soft tones rose from leather tomes sweetly,
through rouged lips they tumble with love.
Lullabies call through the coldest of nights
love, words, me, me,
I've been waiting for someone to shed some light,
To take my hand and lead me back
Into the arms of the earth.
I've been ankle-deep in frost-kissed...

somewhere in the depths of self

on star-filled nights
and reflections of yesterdays

through framed glass i trace...
depression, me, lost, lost,
This poem is written in the Sestina form.
Under the cloak of anger,
In a world full of despair,
Surrounded by misery and pain,
Engulfed in darkness,
depression, introspection, forgiveness, love,
A full heart chokes
too full to feel
anything but broken.
Seems all is lost
and only phantoms linger
must I remain?
A hollow husk, a remnant
yet, engorged and choking
cowboy-western, introspection, life, baby,
The summer sun was high. The heat was oppressive.
A whalebone corset dug into my body's tender parts.
Peering from the shop, my hand touches the pane
childhood, faith, history, inspirational,
