Words on Paper

A poem; Words on Paper by Solaris Denali I try to make art out of literary standards and words. Blue for sadness, green for envy, red for blood and pain. People get too caught up in the ideas of poems and their stanzas, their structure, and form. Their rhyme and rhythm. There is a bird … Continue reading Words on Paper

Crowded Desolation

I sit still and watch as my desolation grows. The cacophony of mumbling voices surrounding me are like the sound of a sputtering car engine, loud and unpleasant.

I don't know who … Continue reading Crowded Desolation

Curious Calamity

It started out with a space documentary. And then another, and another. And another. My love for science and astronomy grew. Then it grew into quantum physics. And biology and geography. Even architecture and religion. Everything fascinated me. When I was still active in church, it wasn't the religious belief that brought me in. It … Continue reading Curious Calamity
