The Connection Between You and I

Word count: 106

Warning: no warning!

You are my soulmate

I knew it the moment we met,

The moment you held me,

The moment you spoke

I was just a tiny baby,

But somehow, I just knew it in my heart

You saved me,

You loved me (and always will),

You let me become a part of your world

Some people are just too blind to see,

You don’t have to share blood to be a family

Thank you, God, for blessing me,

With this mother, this angel of mine

This connection we have, you and I,

Will last forever, even after we die

Words cannot express how much I love you


The Stars

Word Count: 161

Warning: S P O O P Y ALIENS

The Stars are always watching.

You naive innocents gaze in wonder

At the Stars’ twinkling lights, blissfully

Unaware of the Entities who gaze back

In hunger.


The Stars are always listening.

Be aware of the static from your phone

Or television,

They listen to your conversations and

Plan their eventual trip from above…


The Stars have made their move.

A “meteor shower” occurs late

in the evening,

filling the night sky with streaks of light,

and you, so innocent, so unaware,

cannot fathom the danger you’re in.


The Stars are here.

As the shower comes to an end,

You start your trek back inside,

But a sound in the distance stops you.

A second passes, then three, then six,

A pale, unnatural light illuminates everything in sight,

A meteor, vast and intimidating, sits uncomfortably close.

The Stars walk out, and your innocence can

Protect you no longer –

So run while you can, for it is the only thing you can do.

Raise A Glass

Word Count: 183

Warning: No warning!

Raise a glass to freedom,

Something they can never take away

No matter they tell you

Raise a glass to peace,

Something that will always be by your side,

No matter how rough the tide

Raise a glass to unity,

The light which will never fade

Or glimmer, even on the darkest of nights

Raise a glass to friendship,

And the bonds that continue to grow

And renew

Raise a glass to hope,

Something that will never die,

Even in the face of fear and oppression

Raise a glass to those who hate and do no good,

Pray that someday they will see the truth

Raise a glass to you,

The love you give, the wisdom you share

Raise a glass to all the things that impact our lives,

That shape our world, that gives us a reason to live.

Be grateful for the time you still have.

Don’t waste it on fear and anger,

Use it to progress and grow

And then it’ll show,

When you raise your glass for the last time,

You’ll know your life exceeded everything you hoped for.


Let It Go

Word count: 122

Warning: sadness, issues with self-image.

Another day is gone

The room is dark, and I’m alone with my thoughts

I dream of the future, of having control,

Of an alternate life

My mother is healthy and happy again,

No longer does she have stressed-induced health problems

Happiness lives here now

No longer do I have to hide in the shadows,

No longer will I hold onto anger and sadness

No more insecurities

No more second-guessing myself

No more people taking advantage of me,

Mocking me,

Causing the worst pain imaginable

I dream of a future where my family is happy,

We’ll be free to go anywhere, anytime

We won’t be sick, or tired, or sad anymore

I pray with all my heart that day will soon come.


The Third Eclipse

A/N: Hamilton has wormed its way into quite a few of my poems.

Word count: 143

Warning: sadness, death

Why is the sky blue?

Why does grass grow?

Why does death steal life

With no warning and no


“Death doesn’t discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes” – [Hamilton]

I swear I won’t let your death be in vain –

Your memory will never be forgotten…
