The day goes slowly,

As winter turns the sky grey

And cold as concrete.

Haikuesday 12.13.16

I stay late at work.

The moon greets me as I leave,

Cold, bright, and distant.

Haikuesday 03.04.14

I feel such regret–

A small voice in my head said,

“Don’t take the DayQuil.”

Sliding.

I remember this time last year,

Each day was grey and quiet.

I couldn’t get home fast enough.

I couldn’t be alone enough.

I was a part of nothing

and I let no one be a part of me.

It was fascinating to see

just how far I could go.

Unstructured,

undisciplined,

unengaged,

unaccountable.

I let my hair grown long and my breath grew short.

I’m not that girl though.

I don’t let myself hide for long.

Tonight, I walked through the grey and the quiet

beneath the screen of artificial orange street lights,

and I let the hail hit my face,

unblinking,

smiling,

sliding,

skipping.

It was fascinating to see

just how far I could go.
