Listen to the Canvass

Art is nothing more than personalized understanding.

Pineapples, Bananas, and Squares

It's always amazed me just how important love is to the most unlikely of people.

Passing Time

I am the artist looking out a window seeing only you. Dreaming of the poet who has already discovered in my heart.

Dear You (the thousandth unsent letter)

I'm really not sure who will find this, if anyone, but thank you anyway. Even if you never lay eyes on these pages, even if there's no one left to read these words to you, even if you're not interested in poetry (or me). Thank you.

Thank you for being born. Thank you for coming back. For making mistakes and fixing them, or learning from them. For choosing today of all days to become aware of the time I've taken today to honor you - a complete stranger, whoever and wherever you may be.

Lately, I've been through a lot and it has allowed me to realize that even people you've never met (and maybe never will) can change you. I've lost myself over two complete strangers and a middle school crush in the last few months. I've seen people I love struggle more than ever before - but they are still up and moving, alive and kicking. I've taken a dozen punches and even dismantled myself, but now I am gathering the pieces and pulling myself back together.

So I just wanted you to know that I'm thrilled that you are here, wherever this is. I'm amazed by how beautiful/ handsome you have become. I am leagues beyond grateful to have met you (even if I haven't). Even if I won't. And more than anything else, I have never been more proud of you.

Enjoy this feeling of living, and should you ever need anything I am here. Always here.

With Eternal Love,
Madison Rene'

A Fairy Godmother for All

May you be blessed with both innocence and pure, unparalleled brilliance. May your heart break just enough to fit the pieces of one other and should they mean the words they say like watered down coke my wish is nothing more than for you to believe them. May you know the world's secrets and truths without having fear or doubt. You have great potential, please don't squander it.

Excuses for the Supernatural

Believing in ghosts makes it infinitely easier to keep yourself together when the people love start dropping like flies

Putting on the Damage

Maybe it's not about how much armor you have on, but really knowing how to handle the blows coming your way.

You know, everything could be that simple if only we wanted it to be.

The Planning Begins

Meet me on the street corner of -this- and -that-. Bring a notepad, a pen, a pencil, and an open mind. We have some big things to discuss about next month :)

Saturday Night Poetry Dates

If we make this little coffee shop our home away from home. If we sit across from each other separated solely by a table holding two drinks and a cookie. If this continues to make us happy. Then I hope you know that this is love. This is hope. This is bliss. And I never want it to end.

It means "sleeping ocean"or to its fullest just "half a truth."

It's about a forgotten sea and a girl with too many names.

A Toy Globe on the Desk

There's something that really makes me think whenever you talk about praying for God to spin the world around again. I mean I get that it's gotta go round and round before anything can really happen, but my god, what do you have against the way things are now?

Round and round again, but Darling, that precious God of yours, he ain't doing a damn thing. Otherwise there'd be more babies born than dying and there'd be more kids making it passed eighteen than there are stagnating enough to lose sight of who they are.

Midnight Shadows

Like a butterfly with owl eye wings or a lizard on a branch you used your fleeting sense of fashion to camouflage yourself within the wild world of vicious lust-soaked women and try hard men.

Little did you know you were so much more wonderful exactly as you were before.

And the Award Goes to...

I understand that you've got a life to live and things to do and people to please,but you still find time to visit me here each and every day (or at the very least three or four times a week). So I want to make the very most of your time here today by thanking you for finding it in yourself to read my thoughts, for considering a strange soul your friend (one of your kind), to support a nobody with all your heart. I understand that you've got a life to live but thank you for making me a part of that.

Big, Crowded Spaces

We're just joking. Lighten up. Smile, it's good for you No you cannot take anything else from me. I hope you find it another way, somewhere else, bt if you follow along with us you're so much more likely to achieve that.

Growing up with Strength

I like to think that you have a plan when it comes to knowing what you want. But if for some reason you have yet to decide, tell me whatever it is you need and I shall help.

Speaking Through Angel Feathers

You may not be able to respond verbally anymore, but I know you can still hear me. Which is why I'm siting here at gate 11 staring out the window crying - in front of fucking strangers with shifty glances and awkward stares. I miss you, but nothing's really wrong. I love you, but I'm sure wherever you are you can already feel that - with absolute certainty.

Icefire Bliss

So there's nothing out here, just some fields and trees. Sure there's a house every once in a while, but that's what makes this place so perfect.

We're just stargazing right?

Of course! Come one, I've got this great beat up pick up truck and blankets. You bring the hot chocolate and off we'll go!


Of course! What better way to watch the stars than to hold one in your arms as you stare at the glittering angels above?

... Are you sure?

I just wanted a better way to say the obvious than those three misguided words.

Flowers Every Tuesday

I sold my soul to a ghost of you that hasn't even been born yet.

I regret nothing.

So Close to One Hundred

Just remember the good times. It makes days like these just a little easier to swallow.

Have a Safe Flight

I guess I never really noticed it before but every single thing you've said to me was actually just "I love you" in disguise.

A Throne of Books and Beauties

I’ve always envied the way you’ve always managed to keep your head up and your poise so unbelievable. You’re practically royalty of the twenty-first century.

With Angry Gunpowder Hands

Please understand me when I say I'm not mad at you and I'm not angry with you either, but I hate knowing how lost and alone you must have felt to do that even though I was here for you from the very beginning.

Just no Time

Even now I continue to love all the people you could have been. 

Across the Pond and Then Some

I'll take you
to Paris

Someday, I will -
I promise.

My life and 
your heart

are depending on
that trip. 

I love you,
my Artist.

Forever and Always,
your Dreamer.

Make the Year Count

Worthwhile, what is worthwhile anyway in these hard times? Is it worthwhile to get up and go to work day after day for the same lack of pay or is it worthwhile to come home to a messy house now cleaned by children after school so you can watch TV with them before dinner? Is worthwhile a story you started but never finished?

No. Worthwhile is anything that brings you closer to the person you want to be.

It’s the things that make you happy now, not later.

Worthwhile is more than routine.

Incognito Angel

You're one good night hug, one goodbye kiss, one hand helping me up that I'll never forget.

An Unforgettable Name

There I go again, getting coffee grounds in my tea 'cause I was wondering about you again. It's already the third time this week. Not that I'm complaining, it's just that you cross my mind at the strangest times and I don't know why.

I mean, all you did was make me smile a few times before I left. It's not like you fought away the angels, 'cause you were one, but I guess in a way you did. You never did take my hand until right before I ran.

And you never could keep your promises, but you made one hell of an almost lover. So when you shot your own star out of the sky I hope you know I watched from miles away wishing you'd be okay.

Something Sad Happened

He said his heart was an icicle encased in stone, and somehow I broke him. Then he shattered me in turn and we were both that way - it’s not even described as numb more like emotionless something far worse than apathetic. And now, we’re both infected.

A Week So Far Away

I never knew coming home could be so peaceful. And finally, I can stop missing you.

Spilled Coffee

I'd said that it's no big deal, but I don't actually know what's wrong. So instead I'll smile and tell you that tomorrow will be better.

Home for the New Year

I'm sorry we couldn't have stayed closer or been more of a true family this holiday, but being together this long was truly memorable.

P.s. I'm on my way back and I should be there soon.
