    the last time I started running I couldn’t stop i ran until the ground and the soles of my shoes had morphed together team mates striving forward at an impossible pace for an undefined purpose destruction grazing over and onto their path into and onto their patched-up dirty hearts nothing ma...

    A gallery of fresh open wounds Scarlet ribbons encasing knife-like tongues Cutting into my heart, my belly, my brain, my soul Silent desperation at its finest Tears do not splash upon the tile floor I do not scream I only whisper hateful mantras into the glass reflection A worthless stupid fa...

    Lost girl; what made her feel so sure? She lifts her chin as if she knows where she is headed But lifts up arms and closes eyes and lets them lead her because she is scared Silly girl; what made you feel so strong? You’re helplessly wrapped in the arms that work to save you And yet you’ll n...

    She swallows every meal down with an enchanting smile and an ounce of glass She glistens from the inside out, for her stomach is lined with gemstones She is an original breed because she possesses the power to empty herself Her wrists, made of the thickest steel, cry out They sting and burn an...

    It’s a bit of a risk but I’ll take it, Tell me it’s just a dream and I’ll make it, Sparkle and shine clear as the truth, I’m sick of pretty places and I need something new, I need the yellow and red of the sun in my heart, To fly off on a plane in search of a new start, The salt wa...

    I know I shouldn’t worry about petty things, Like what my hair looks like on the first day of school, Or the possible reason why no guy has ever legitimately asked me out, Out on a date to the movies or the mall or the pizza place and- oh! How splendid that would be, The sheer joy of holding ...

    Where is the kindness? Behind the things that we do, Whatever happened to, “You respect me and I’ll respect you”. Where is the chivalry? Within the hearts of charming boys, They trick the minds of girls, Playing them like pretty toys. Where is the self-respect? Hidden in the souls...

    As a child I watched daytime television while singing and dancing and everything else, I never sat still because I was like some sort of Jack Russell Terrier, So full of boundless energy, so high off of life, I created a new planet everyday and wished to travel there with my feet and not my mind,...

    They toss me, Side to side, Up and down, Like pooping kernels, On a metal pan, Fluttering their, Rainbow wings, Against my tummy, And under my chest, Dizzying my thoughts, You make me, Do flips, Over a flame, I just hope, I don’t, Get burnt, By your smile....

    Loneliness is not the old woman eating breakfast alone, As long as her smile is not plaster, And there is that certain content-with-the-world glow about her, You can be assured that she is loved, And has been loved many times, In her long lifetime. Loneliness is the still-blossoming teenage...

    I greet the lovely night hours in a state of gratitude, Relieved that I have not yet fallen into that state of which they call REM sleep, A state which prohibits me from distracting my mind and instead takes over, Controlling my thoughts which I no longer can sense, I used to think I hated night...

    A blank page is, to me, an opportunity, A vessel connecting a single opinion to a world of hungry minds, A beautiful canvas of endless possibilities, However, occasionally I blank out, All I can see is an endless sea of white, And I can’t quite remember why I started writing, In the first pl...

    My heart has the fragility of a balloon, Flying high one minute, It can deflate the next, I do my best to protect this pump which brings me life, A layer of muscle surrounds it, Offering strength to endure obstacles, A layer of smarts also protects, By making sure I don’t fall for something...

    Sometimes, It’s the people who won’t stop running, Who forget how to use their feet, Under the illusion that maybe, They can outrun their fears, They don’t realize the only thing pushing them forward, Is the fear they are trying to escape, Sometimes, It catches up to them, And they s...

    Backstage we are reminded To smile and then we will shine, A precious shine that catches the eyes of the audience, Like the glitter which is sewn into our costumes Clings to our flat-ironed hair And is swept over our butterfly eyelids. Maybe if I inhale deeply enough Before I am swept onstage...

    Never disrupt the dragons, The dragons with their purple-smoke-breath, Which rolls out of their mouths as they roar with laughter, Tickling the hearts of all who are near, And making them believe that the dragons are happy, Never disrupt the dragons, The dragons with their sparkle-and-shine ...

    My name is anonymous, I am a creative outlet, A guarantee that no one can criticize, My confused heart, My name is anonymous, I am the words my heart needs to say, But is afraid to admit to, And so they are hidden behind, My alter ego, My name is anonymous, I am a braver person, I am not ...

    Pen to paper is where it all begins, They wove a story of distressed damsel meets charming prince, He swept her off her feet with promises of happyendings, And the inkblotted the edges of a slice of loose leaf paper, At the part where the dragon swooped in with purplesmokebreath, And the prince...

    As the saltwater runs from your eyes, And the aftermath of the rainstorm rolls from your windowsill, Let them be joined by whatever holds you back, Don’t let it obtain you, Because you can control whatever you feel, And strength is a choice, You have the power to fight these senseless fears,...

    A face of glass, No one dares stare, For fear that it may break. A heart of gold, No one does see, For it’s buried beneath, Heartless misery. Face concealed, Behind her mask, Her cherished walls, Keep out the past. Within these walls, Disaster lies, The faintest gleam, Sparks in her ...

    I know this is a brand new start, There’s no reason for me to be torn apart, Yet look where I end up, Right in between nowhere and somewhere, Gazing longingly at the days that have gone, Yet I must realize there will be new days, Brighter days filled with the sunshine of the future, Some mi...

    And there in my backyard, Around the pool and within the gate, Is being installed a fence. Nothing more, just a fence, Not a symbol of love or declaration of hate, Just a safety precaution, A barrier for little tykes To keep them safe as they stumble along on pudgy legs Just gaining their f...

    What they call hallucinations, I call flashbacks; portals which peek into another time and place. Back to a time when naptime was for everyone, not just the sick, and the only way to ruin your reputation was by stealing crayons or eating glue. Back to the day I met Toby. I remember that day clear...
