Will

Humble though many may seem
Until into others they ream
Making sounds and noises bleed
Annotating with terrible glee
Never taking a moment to breathe

Lullaby – Story Snippet

“Please don’t scream anymore.”

Everyone was startled by the low words from the crouching man in the middle of the room. They hadn’t realized that he’d stopped singing the quiet lullaby to himself until that moment.

“I don’t want to know what will happen if you wake her up.”

It was his oldest friend that ventured the question they were all wanting to ask. “Wake who up, buddy?”

“The crying woman in the back of my head.”

Disappear – Snippet

There were times when Lila just wanted to throw up her hands in defeat, turn and then stomp away, but in the end, she never could bring herself to do it.


This was supposed to be more, but I got the one sentence out and everything else that was supposed to come after vanished like goat milk that my dogs can reach and my brain refused to give me any more.

Practice Makes Progress

Softer now
One step up
Until it’s needed again
Not going over
Do practice
