Halo and Horn

halo and horn

One dressed in white,
the other clad in red.
They sit on my shoulders
and play games with my head.


False Advertising

Oh, January.
I waited and waited
For you because
New year, new me
But you’re false advertising.
You’re an average product
In fancy packaging.
Because the instructions
Read a good night’s sleep
On the 31st means
Come morning,
A guaranteed twist
Of fate and destiny.
All my bad habits gone,
Good ones followed dutifully.
Yet mid January,
Here I am
The same old me.


“I think a lot of people are afraid of being happy because of what others might think of it. They’re afraid to embrace that and embrace themselves and love themselves and do what they love and what makes them happy. It’s very easy to get sucked into that way of thinking and you know, I guess, working according to society but you have to write your own story.” –Rihanna
