The Latest


I just wanna let my feelings out. But I hear that's not the wave. No one cares how you feel. Not even the ones you're caring for. How drab? How melodramatic of me. You have to separate the impulse from the thoughtful. The thoughtful from the overthinking. The...

Cracked Open

Times too strange to just be walking up to unfamiliar homes, peeking in. But, that’s exactly what I did. I saw a light through the window and hesitantly, fearfully knocked. No reason, just curious. I had no expectations. Well, no good expectations. Funny how that...

Some have hated me for it The stretch The tear The awkward silence as it resonates It's just another piece To a poorly put together puzzle And I keep losing sleep Losing time Losing everything but this weight Atop these shoulders Covered in this... Skin Trace my...

Nice to Meet You

Moonrise over Assala (A fictional place)

I love you. I will always love you. But, what we had wasn't authentic. It's hard to say but I'm not sure either of us were really ever being honest at the same time. But understand that I know you love me. I know that you cared and that as hard as it was for you to...

The Ramblings

Anthony Hamilton

Here's my heart I'm dying to give it to you to be received Hope you see it Hope you notice Not this last name morning chaos But the inside warm calm You can call home It's flawed But that's perfect If there is no lack to fill, balance cannot be had Feel me? Fill me....
