Time has no eyes

to lift its lids

open wide

and realize

the outer joy


the inner demise.


Judgment arose

turned up its nose

to criticize

the part of my heart

encaptured, enraptured

in your pale blue eyes.


God, there’s not a thing

I wouldn’t do 

to guide you,

to try to 

help you


to see the joy in being alive.


But that’s the thing:

Time has no eyes.


Kailani Norwell has a big mouth, a big heart, a big brain (metaphorically speaking), a big fucking ego, and an even bigger take on everything and anything. She has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge–to learn all that she can–and for personal development. While she dreams larger than life and encourages others to follow what puts sparks in their eyes, she typically plays incredibly small. She has indebted herself for America’s most expensive therapist–a bachelor’s and master’s degree in clinical psychology. Writing is her passion. It’s what ignites her soul. It is her most sincere form of expression. She doesn’t think she’s to write the next great American novel, but she’s to write something.
