The Floating Ballerina

It feels like you have been in a constant state of dreams and illusions. The lines in the sand have gotten blurry. You can’t tell what’s real or where figments of your imagination creep in. Your face is constantly filled with creased lines. The bags under your eyes tell of a restlessness. The days are... Continue Reading →

A discovery of selves

She has hidden rooms within her Each covered in a mystical aura In one room a different voice The poet and loud lover, brash and rash Singing herself hoarse Dancing to the rhythm of her boisterous laugh In another room a voice in a native tongue Slightly subdued in her royal regalia Is the gatekeeper...
