The Plain Truth


Image by Lucija Rasonja from Pixabay

I feel an all too familiar pain in my soul

As I look out through foggy glass surrounded by weathered pane

And realize that I will never be on top of anything

Not even if I take a plane to the stars

It is plain to me that my most troubled relationship

Has always been the one that I have with myself


Write a "top" poem

Write about a troubled relationship

LBRY is a decentralized content marketplace. I price the PDF versions of my work at approximately half of the Kindle price because I receive the entire amount rather than a royalty percentage.

Most of my work is free. A tip as small as 5 LBC (approximately $0.15) really helps, and it all goes to me.

I created a Haiga with the intention of honoring women artists and creatives. I have affordable prints, postcards, magnets, and mugs featuring my Haiga available from Deviant Art. 


  1. You are not alone.
    I don't agree with anyone all of the time, and that certainly includes myself.

    1. Thank you. I find that whenever people are kind to me, I wait for the moment when they will tire of me. I will never be okay, and, as the comments on my poetry blog show, a lot of people just don't understand that. I often feel like me and most people come from different planets. I've never felt like I belonged on this one.


This is a safe space. Be respectful.
