Tree Lovers Anonymous

I always liked these trees Actually I love them. I love them like a squirrel loves a nut. I love them like a fish loves water. They look like home. They hang like icicles. Maybe they remind me of christmas Like a wreath around the door celebrating Christ. They’ve always loved me. Only like a mother can […] Continue reading »

Journal 3: Tornado

1. The sky was darker than Smoke from a fire. Swirling Like cream in black coffee.   We were like sitting ducks Waiting for something that May or may not come, almost Like awaiting a snowstorm.   But this was different, Another kind of storm like another Ice cream flavor.   Yet people kept moving […] Continue reading »

Journal 3: Something’s Outside

The feeling writhed like a fish in my gut. The window curtains beat like wings, luring me to glimpse what the night would reveal.   I pushed them back, their silk like thin, papery flesh, to reveal a thing, pale as a decomposing body sitting in the grass below.   It sensed my presence and […] Continue reading »

Similes Experiment

I can see it coming, like a little warrior. My eyes zero in on it like I have magnifying glasses for eyes and suddenly I can see everything about it. It looks ready to attack and I am frozen, like I was just shot in the back. I’m constantly on alert as if I expect […] Continue reading »

Poem 1: The calls came in all at once making the phone vibrate like it was trying to climb its way down off the table. It seemed to never stop ringing. Sitting there I could feel the vibrations as if there was a gaping hole forming in the ground, trying to swallow me whole. I […] Continue reading »

Journal 3

Version 1: “Do you pay the electricity bill?” My mother scolded. “No.” She slammed the light switch like a gavel, The decision was final. The pitter patter of her footsteps grew quieter as she walked away. I cowered under my blanket like lost puppy. The coat hung on the hanger like a towering woman, Bare […] Continue reading »

The Walk Home (version 1) The icy wind whipped through the street like an el train. My sister and I huddle closer as we trudge further into the deserted city. She claims that Union is near, that this is just a way she has never taken before. Though the uncertainty in her every step makes […] Continue reading »

Journal 3: Similes Experiment

One Missed Call Version 1: I swing the door open and the metallic smell Hit my face like a tornado, Swirling around my head Until I felt faint. My heart was loud and quick, like hail Pounding on a rooftop. As I moved towards the kitchen At first all i saw was red, Pooling across […] Continue reading »
