    i've always been that girl who left after the chase, but you were different; you didn't let me leave. instead you stuck around and you compared me to a wave because i always kissed the shore to recede back into the tide and sulk in my desolation, a sadness i thought i deserved. ...

    i wrapped myself in safety tape but then i remembered that you have always found a thrill in danger. you're a child toying with a devil and i am the grand canyon; you play on my cliff and i pray to the god i don't believe in that you will never fall. i hate that you care be...

    i loved you, but i loved you not. it was a confliction within my mind. because when i was held up against a wall despite my cries, i was slapped across the face and guilted into a numbed state, only to be caressed and have a place to call home when i was in the safety of your arms...

    six years ago, you were someone i called my best friend. i was stuck in a world of indifference and hatred where i cried out an ocean of tears every single night just to be hit by a wave and silenced on the shore. so i'd pick up a stick and find a spot in the sand to draw all the sins t...

    child, don't you dare cry; let mother nature do so, watch her cry for you. watch her tears fall down, from the sky like waterfalls into our rivers: her build up of woe, beautifully changing into our drinking water. watch her strike the earth with series of lightening bolts, lig...

    some people listen to music through their hearts, a cascade of happiness, and anger and sadness all hitting the right notes. it helps them feel, it helps them see, it helps them breathe. but i don’t need a melody. i hold my pen over my journal, thinking of everything that haunts me an...

    darkened a shade of black and colder than the polar winds – that’s how you found her heart, a place no one dared to love. time passed. you fell into the depths of her sunken eyes, and landed with a thump with broken bones. and time passed. trapped inside her broken soul, you...

    they say I’m wasting my health away, but what they don’t know is that i’d give it up, anyway; life is nothing but an empty curse, sleep, a stop of cruel reality, and death, the easy way out; they can try to pry, but i’ve never been a girl who worked hard, anyway....

    i've only been kissed with butter knives, their dangerous abilities carefully masked with an image of innocence and tenderness. it was only when I finally pulled away and saw my saliva on his mouth - a deep red, when i realized those kisses were killing me. never came a time where i was...

    i watch in pain as your trunk endures an occasional tumble, an array of bittersweet golden leaves scattering the dirt. i shed tears for you, for hours on end, but you reach out with your boughs and touch the sky with your twigs. i am your caregiver, nutrients and roots, you need me...

    I’ve already lost you; but I lose you again, day after day, again and again. I find you when I lay lifeless on the bathroom floor, tracing my skin with your poetry. those days I smoke, and all I inhale, is your signature cologne. then I know I’ve lost you cooking your favorite pa...

    when the wind howls and cries during miserably gloomy days, I truly believe: we must thank the world for the rain showered upon us. to succeed in this game that we call our lives, I truly believe: we must forgive the world in which we live....

    the cameras flash bright; we are picture-perfect. we kiss and we smile, we love and we blush, we laugh and we hug. yet we’re not a photo; life’s not picture-perfect. we scream and we lie, we thrash and we hate, we hurt and we fight. the greatest lie of all, framed photos on our wa...

    surprise, surprise, surprise. we fought today (again). hey, trust me - we will again (and again and again). cause your words cut deep - they broke the skin. it stings, it hurts, it’s gonna scar; I just want to scream. it’s sad when I look back, we used to never be like this. you we...

    I gave you my compliments, but you washed them down, like the pills you hide in your purse. I made you a flower crown, but you wore it on your neck, like the noose you hang in your closet. I wrote you love letters, but you burnt them to ashes, like the blunt you hold between your fing...

    no one heard my silent cries so I drowned myself in tears. but your touch lingered on my skin, it tugged me up to breathe. the vows of our once fairy-tale, now wrecked and packed aside. I saw, I heard, I felt you leave, but memories did not subside. as time ticks by and carries on what...

    They were truly antithetical people. He was a promising star-student, she was a hopeless writer; he was carefree and bubbly, she always acted as if her life was in jeopardy. Somehow they fell in love. Days passed and soon months, but the girl could not destroy the demon inside of her that would f...

    please, I want to know how you effortlessly enchant me. and why each movement sparks an urge to reach out and brush my hands against your cheek. and why those lips dance and taunt around, while they form sweet words and stop my breath. and why your voice whispers pretty songs and ...

    DAY 1: he’ll be tan skinned and have beautiful eyes – bright blue; the color will contrast his blonde hair perfectly. he’ll display a certain type of charisma that will keep women lined up on their tippy-toes. he’ll have muscles of steel; he’ll be so strong that lifting me into his arms w...

    I still have the letters, in which you wrote, “I could never continue this life without you,” and I’ve been counting it’s been five hundred days – we haven’t spoken, but life hasn’t changed much...

    together, we conquer the world; our laughter spills mounds of honey, our joy brings together the heavens – even our tears complete the oceans. you’ve planted a flower in my heart and I’d like for you to know: we may not live forever, but your love has left its mark....

    do you remember when we walked along the shore to leave our footprints behind and our names in the sand? such little did I know – future hikes on the beach, I’d walk the shore alone, with forever washed away....

    startling news, shaken voice. and you said, “hush my baby, this is not the end.” wild sobbing, trembling form. and you said, “hush my baby, you will be okay.” flooding tears, frightened face. and you said, “hush my baby, i will comfort you.” unstable thoughts, muddl...
