I am from
My green blankey and
Climbing out of my crib
From playing mermaid in the bathtub.
I am from walking my dog,
And the noise he made when I step on his tail.
I am from my sheep nightlight
And Blue’s Clues and the Berenstain... (more »)
I see the darkness in my soul
Others do not know
It is evil
It teats at me
It is the good that smiles
It is the good that overcomes the darkness
Good may win the battles
But it hasn't won the war. (more »)
A fire ignites gladdly on the stove, tea kettle pealing frantically
while salt and canola oil singe away the ceiling and ascend.
A strange, red fabric pools in the sky,
offers billows of smoke to fill a white balloon.

You are an owl without wisdom.
I am a dragon, no wings.
You are a sweet blaze of citrus.
I am a crisp jasmine breeze.
You leave the beach free of footprints.
I leave trenches where I dance.
You are the lowering ear tufts.
I am the... (more »)
I imagine a pleasant stream
Colored like a rainbow with
A touch of glitter,
Covering the toilet bowl
Like a film of beautiful tapestry.
But sadly, it cannot be.
I imagine it is real stars I see
When the scale dips below
A hundred and... (more »)
If there was a word or a way,
That I could say,
Maybe I only want to,
Just be with you.
I don't even think at all,
That I could even fall,
For someone more bright,
Not any day or through any night. (more »)
I cannot find the girl
with sunshine in her cheeks
been gone from the Barbie
bed sheets that used to cover
I do not know where my
body lays at night
blanket of... (more »)
I wonder what song they will play at my funeral.
I wonder if it will bring the people peace,
while they sit in a church to leave the dead.
I hope they play my favorite song.
The one that I played in my car right before the lights flashed and... (more »)
By looks is not right.
Just because a book cover is pretty
Do you think it's a bad book?
Just because a blanket is ugly
Do you think it won't bring you warmth?
Well people assume I'm mean
And that I... (more »)
I'm in love with you
But I hardly know your name
You hardly know mine
But I'm sure you don't feel the same
We pass each other in the halls
I try my hardest not to look
It's killing me inside
I wonder if you... (more »)
There's a boy who stands a few inches taller than me,
he is a bit annoying,
But, you see this boy
happened in on my life and
caught me as I freefell and almost crashed into the pavment.
This boy chases demons... (more »)
The tragically beautiful Monday-
The day he asked her
If he could have a date that Friday,
She grew into her glass shell.
She was euphoric,
She was ecstatic,
As if nothing could ever happen.
Life was going perfectly;
Her glossy finish... (more »)

No cell phone for a whole week,
and no cell phone four hours a week after.

Rolling when you fall down,

A mix of solutions on a chalkboard lab table
Or the final piece to the puzzle
Whose mystery of seeking the great unknown was engraved into your skull
Does this mix of mysterious solutions
Make me ache with lust for days on end?
Or could it... (more »)
she huddles in the corner.
too scared to face the whispers,
the pain is like daggers
she tries optimism,
but only feels emptiness inside
pretends, tries, to hope
She sees only... (more »)
