Always on the Map

I haven't posted a poem in a few months now, but I plan to pick up the pace again. This is one that I wrote a few weeks ago about how real life can be dull sometimes and can draw us to fantasy worlds.

A Daughter Named Lilly

This is a poem about how since I was a teenager I have dreamed of one day having a daughter named Lilly. I'm not even sure why, I just love the name and have always wanted that. The last person that I loved thought this was very sweet, and while I thought that she might be Lilly's mother, it appears that I still need to find her.

Take Me Home

This is a poem that I wrote recently about how I often live in the past and fear the future, but that giving up is not an option. Each stanza ends with a repeated verse, which stems from something I said in a prayer the other night in a shower (as odd as that sounds). I thought it was neat, so I wrote it down and ran with it.
