    There is something so profoundly sad in those hours after the night ends and before morning arrives. All the lonely people searching for togetherness in the rips and frays of empty sheets and the way the redness of the alarm clock penetrating the pitch black resembles your eyes burned from crying be...

    “Tell me a story,” Miller said, propping his feet on my dashboard as I careened off the freeway to the sloping curve of his exit. The clock radio read ten thirty as the darkness filtered in through the evergreen trees lining the streets. Stars began to appear one by one, like the lights flicking...

    She is frayed Ripped around the edges, worn like an Overcoat She sits on the stone, shadowed, The crevices running, eroding fissures, echoing The sunken trenches in her papery skin She stares Hollow eyes, emptied Drained like the rainwater that runs like tiny feet over the rock’s surface ...

    Your lips, bright cherry stained Tiny, flawless, butterfly-like Anticipating I imagine they taste Like imagination Your hands, baby breath soft And lonely, I can feel in my bones that They are reaching Just like mine have reached Your hair curls in milk chocolate ribbons Touching the outl...

    I look across The cheap plastic table at you Your eyes are fixated on an Invisible heartbeat that belongs to the horizon Somewhere far away From the too-strong coffee that Floats in tendrils of caffeine up to my face The tears prick my eyes and I Stare at your vacancy So hard my eyes burn w...

    That night your eyes Pierced through something thicker than blood The immediacy of their blueness Trembling my heart And rusted footprints on windy piers Still write themselves upon my pages That night your breath Warmed the insides of my wrists And the depths of my hands You taught me not ...

    I’m in Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory with two starry-eyed kids, trying to decide between the rows of brightly coloured ice cream in tubs lining the freezer. The clerk peers down at us over his wire-rimmed spectacles. His hair is dusty grey and his skin is creviced and wrinkled with time and wea...

    It’s raining. I don’t know this because I can see the millions of falling droplets, because I can’t. I can feel the streams of fresh water on my face, pouring and relentless. I turn my face to what must be the sky and let my skin be soaked. I am clean. I’m an insomniac, but I might as w...

    There is an almost physical clenching in my heart as I try to write this. As I struggle to put us on paper, to make the reader understand what August was like for us. I could start at the beginning, but where is that? The memory of you is an undecipherable, tangled mess of old wedding photographs fr...

    I was terrified out of my mind that someday you might leave me. Now my fears have come true and I’m more alone that I was before. You’ve even interrupted my flow of words with those strong hands that you were supposed to hold me with. You were supposed to. You pinky promised as we were sitting o...

    Time heals. That’s the adage that’s been pushed in my ears and I try to listen, I really do, but when I woke up this morning you still had a wrestler’s grip on my heart and my stomach contorted and twisted and the pain... the pain was breathtaking. You see, for me, when someone says ‘forever...

    It’s almost Autumn. The sun is shining off the cars as they speed down my street and I hold my breath in anticipation of the gold that will soon surround me. I stare into that webcam, cursing the fact that it’s the only thing connecting our faces but honouring it for doing that. September first...

    Every day Pulling through Like there’s a sour candy Lodged in your mouth Fabricating smiles out of tear stained skin Pulling it over your bones too tight and You can’t breathe but it’s okay Because you’re the eccedentesiast Faking a smile Secretly screaming the truth Praying to th...

    Whisper lies Into my believing ears Perfection is what we strive for, Make me believe That I am not good enough I look bad My feet aren’t pointed, my stomach sticks out, My butt’s too big, My back is arched And then you say I’m not confident enough Such a twisted game we play Every...

    A lump rises in my throat, opaque and Unforgiving Heart beating fast and Unsteadily steady Blood rushing to my face, pain an almost Physical sensation crushing my Heart They’re coming now, and I can’t stop them The memories and flashbacks, blurry around the edges Faded and scratched bu...

    Sometimes people find someone who will last a lifetime. They put a smile on your face and a flutter in your heart and you just can’t imagine waking up next to anyone else in your whole life. They give you hope that your future might just be filled with the kind of love that sparkles with more irid...

    We’re lying on the couch, The Blind Side playing in the background, but neither of us are paying attention. Now you’re playing me When I Fall by Barenaked Ladies and singing along, my voice an undercurrent to your melody. Our fingers are folding perfectly together, the spaces between them like m...

    It was evening on a Saturday and I was running late. Flustered, I clutched my bag with my free hand and darted across the narrow, crazy streets. Fair lights bubbled up like rainbow sparklers in front of my eyes. My feet, clad in navy ballet slippers, squished across the grass and into the midst of t...

    Slow dancing to the beat of our Hearts, Music just a Faraway rhythm Floating away with voices and Laughter As you pull me close, I lose sight of the ground All I can see are the Stars in your eyes as you Whisper in my ear And we dance Talking, our voices getting Lost in the summer...

    This is what I have learned about a broken heart: The people who you loved the most Who told you, Who promised you, That they would never, In a million years, Hurt you, Can hurt you the most. They can get inside your head They know all your secrets They can backstab you with Knives that...
