Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

each morning’s new

23 June 2014



morning silhouettes

a world of new beginnings –

dawn’s enlightenment.

23 June 2014



I’m addicted, not physically, but still

it’s like a fix, a drink, a shot, a pill,

that validation of another soul,

without it I do not believe I’m whole.

Inside I’m so completely conflicted,

I’m addicted.


I’m insatiable, need a little more,

a victim of this habit-forming war.

I can’t get clean, my soul inked on the page

no longer is enough without the praise.

That first applause, I wish I’d resisted,

I’m addicted.
