A discussion on Truth and God

I was first introduced to quantum physics through What the Bleep Do We Know!?, a 2004 hybrid film and documentary that seeks to explain the connections between science and spirituality.

Living (and freezing) in Boston, I tried to find comfort amidst my weekly existential crises and I remembered the film recommendation from before. In my eight layers of warmth, I waddled down to the local library to check out the three-DVD set. As I walked back to my overly priced apartment, I had no idea that my life was about to change forever.

This journey down the rabbit hole, as…

A poem of haunting thoughts.

As if small ants lived beneath my skin
I feel the itch from inside my body,
Subtly at first but then it expands
And I feel the monster crawling and clawing
Trying to escape it’s prison, but I don’t know
What to do to make the pain stop
This incessant itch that refuses to be scratched
Keeps me awake at night, haunting my dreams
With visions of what life could be like if only
If only I allowed myself to fly free and go after
The song inside my chest, the one that whispers,

You can do it.

And yet…

A poem of rekindling old romance.

Trickling down my spine I feel The inescapable excitement, I tingle with anticipation As I watch you approach me from across the room, You move slowly, But my heart beats so fast Waiting for the moment when you’ll Arrive in front of me and touch me With your magnetic hands — Hands I knew from long ago and Have never forgotten, for your touch Is what held me for endless nights, Wrapped in each other’s embrace As I fell into your eyes, Gray pools of hope and ecstasy And promises of forever — The place I thought I’d gratefully drown…

Poetry Sunday

The sun shines so brilliantly across the ground,
As I stare outside at the lake beside my house;

I remember the times you held me close,
Making me feel loved as the one you chose;

But these days hold a different sound and tune,
Because your presence is absent from this room;

Some days I seem to forget your face and your smile,
Since those have been missing for quite a while;

The promises of forever have become a soft whisper,
Fading away each night I stare at your picture;

Your memory is slowly disappearing from my life, I’m losing…
