The rainfall creates

Tears running down the statue’s

Face mimicking pain


Sad and alone in

A garden of solitude

Longing for someday

You Are Almost Gone

You are almost gone

And I am thankful


Black ink traveling over the pages

Painting my last memories

Of you and me

On the almost full canvas

That is this part of my life


I have not cried today

But can feel the tears slowly

Well up in my eyes

Weary with memories

As I conjure the ghost of you


Sometimes I wonder

What you may be doing now

If you are well

If you have found someone new

If you think of me

What the thought of me creates in you


But it does not do well

To dwell on the ifs

For they are not certain

And should not bind me

Rendering me powerless to

The present


Soon you will no longer be a ghost

But a distant memory

The embrace

The kiss

The love

Of another

Will replace you

And the tattered shards you left behind


In actuality

It is happening now


You are almost gone

And I am thankful


❤ Me

A River of Turmoil

She looks in the mirror

And watches her mascara

Begin to run down her face

Mixed with tears

Creating a river of turmoil


Why does it have to be like this?

It shouldn’t

It doesn’t


She made her choice

She tries

But she falters

When this happens

And she feels further and further away


Why does it have to be like this?

It shouldn’t

It doesn’t


Every night he is with her instead

Is a slap in the face

Bringing a pounding heart

And the poison of jealousy

Running through her veins


Why does it have to be like this?

It shouldn’t

It doesn’t


She feels like an afterthought

Sitting and staring at the phone

Wondering what it would be like

If she didn’t call

Would he think to reach out?


Why does it have to be like this?

It shouldn’t

It doesn’t

Opera & Moon and Sun

Hello everyone!

I just survived my first week of classes for my final undergraduate semester. On top of that, it’s production week and now performance weekend for my university’s Opera Scenes. We’re performing scenes from Menotti’s The Medium, Floyd’s Susannah, Gilbert and Sullivan’s Ruddigore, and Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice. I’m in the chorus for Orfeo, and we’re singing it in Italian. It’s fun being a Fury and Blessed Spirit. I always love performing onstage. After Sunday, this will be my last time participating in Opera Scenes at my university. I’m not sure what will happen in the future regarding the opera scene and myself, but I’ll just see what happens. I won’t stop training classically and will probably remain in the art song scene. That’s where my strength lies. I will also be incorporating other styles into my training and future like jazz and contemporary forms.

Last night’s show went well. Our audience was a bit dead, though and didn’t really laugh at the comic scene. Afterwards, I did have fun going out with my friend G downtown St. Louis to get a yummy adult ice cream drink at The Fountain on Locust and afterward feasting on lasagna. Strange order of eating, I know, but there was a time constraint.

It’s time for me to get back to getting ready and productive with my day. Tonight is Performance #2! My family is coming this time. I’ll see if I can get some of my homework reading Act 2 of Titus Andronicus for my Shakespeare class started before I leave for the show tonight.

Meanwhile, here’s a new poem:

Moon and Sun

The moon draws me in

Illuminating with light

The night’s splendour here

While sun blazes hot

In passionate tendrils there


Both have their greatness

With two I can delight in

Yet with self on guard

Someday I will rush into your arms

As we reunite after these

Long absences apart


Someday the warm sun will heat our bodies

As we recline together

On the sand of a paradise’s beach


Someday you will ask me

The most important question

Of both of our lives


Someday I will meet you in a white gown

As I walk down the aisle

And towards my newly joined future


Someday you will gaze into my eyes

And see the twinkling possibilities

Of the children I will bear


Someday our bodies will move together

As our hearts beat as one

Celebrating love and each other


Today I will content myself

With the possibilities of



❤ Me
