She Took No Pity From Cancer
Today, she can smile, she can laugh, she can open her eyes at last. She can feel the sensation of life once again. She can dance to the music she grew up to. She can now smell the brisk air that hovers in the hand of fall. She can enjoy the colors that sweep the earth like a wild brush left with no intent to stop.
She can once again feel alive in the presence of herself. No longer does she lay dormant to the aches of sickness. To the loathing pains of remedy, to needle and flesh. No more curling of the gut and the rejection of medicine. She can sit with eyes poured in tears of joy, not misery.
No more does death ladle her it in its wings. Grinning with rotted teeth and a tongue of black. No more inhaling the stench of this cold building, of frosted souls that lay only wishing for death. No more does she find herself haunted in the breath of dying. Of withering to the unfortunate toils of disease. Lingering at the edge of her grave, praying with melancholy eyes.
Her lungs fill no more with her last breaths. No longer feeling the pity others bleed upon her as if there was no chance of triumph. But in the suffering of it all, she held to a sliver of light. Sewing it, to the faith of each beat that came with each new day.
For with each rising sun, she knew her life was not done. That the moon would soon present itself among the crowded galaxy. And each star sang for her, as each cloud in the sun danced for her.
The whole world was waiting. Anxiously biting its nails for the moment for her to rise. To conquer the battle at her heart. Swinging her mighty blade at each soldier death would send. Casting them back to the depths from which they came.
Finding solace in the simplest of achievements. Even the mere action to conversant with others as wretched pain would knock with no concern to her dying heart. Was a moment of great success that would be praised before rest. Pain that would call out her name to quit, to collapse to the agony that wished her dead.
But she was no victim to the misfortunate. She was the hero of her heart, of her story, her chapters, her book. And each moment she was able to breathe, she was grateful. Unyielding to the critics that scripted inside her mind.
Many times, did she watch as other faltered to the suffering. To closing their book and releasing their pen. Allowing their ink to dry and become nothing but a forgotten imprint upon themselves. To be left to these empty, dreadful cold halls. And she, was no causality to the world. She is a fighter, a queen of her kingdom, within her soul. And no illness, no demon, no devil, no hell was going to take it from her.
And today, on this day, in this miracle of life, she has won the war against cancer.

The Moles Never Learn I found myself walking in the snow, my head aching with a sharp pain. I feel the back of my head, there is something crusted upon the rear of my skull. I dig my nail carefully into it. I can feel the crust collect beneath my nail like dirt. As my feet trudge through the sixteen inches of snow I look to my nail and there in my nail is blood. Dried cells of my body. Upon seeing this I become confused with worry. I place my hand once again upon my bloodied skull and began to examine it. I slide my index finger like the bristle of a broom, back and forth trying to see what wound had allowed such blood upon me. But after several seconds of feeling about, I find nothing. No scratches, no lacerations, nothing. My worried confusion musters down to mere confusion. I rub my eyes as I am strangely held with a slight daze. As if I have been interrupted from a deep sleep. And the evening air is not helping my situation. I am comfortably wrapped for a day tr
I Had Forgotten Red smoke plumes in the air. A brilliant, yet daunting sky of clouded crimson thickens the sky in sheets of billowed cotton. It rises with no sense to stop. The atmosphere frightens, yet heightens the senses with a strange tingle of pleasure. We are losing our homes to the natural order. Yet I am not taken by tears, but by an odd joy of entertainment. For too long have I adhered myself to these pieces of physical wealth. Yes, through struggle, persistence and consistent efforts I have dawned myself with such rewards. But for too long now, I have forgotten the path I had been taken. I had forgotten the many beads of sweat I spewed from the exhaustion to gain such things. I had forgotten the lonely misery I had fought. I forgotten the friends that lifted me, the moments that tore me down only to bring me higher. I had forgotten the delicacy of a flower. The aromas of nature the beauty within myself and the beauty so naturally displayed around me. So m
The Blameful Two The world broke as their hearts bled the shadows of their misery. Seeping upon the world, flooding with the scars of agony. Their eyes trembling beneath the moonlight as their blood stained hands shimmer. Their lips sewn as each is caught in a lie. Both bare, exposed to their duality. Their curtains drawn thus unmasks the bodies they have slain. The skeletons of truth dragged through the spoils of deceit. Each, unwilling to speak. Their cheeks flush in rose petals. Their skin taut to the anxiety of their arrest. They are now the victims of themselves and each the other. Two hell's preached in the underbelly of their weakness. The fraudulent thought in avoidance of pain. And now they stand as nude as the beginning of life, Adam and Eve. Shaking, they are without words. Silent, bearing only tears that fall to the blood soaked floors. The dark whirlpools of hypocrisy. Neither is without sin and neither is without murder. Their souls weep dearly a
