    Sunshine behind clouds becomes lightning through rain. I watch the electricity brand your eyes. Water drops slide down the black pupils before swirling with the lagoon irises. The sky gets darker, more intense. The liquid crystals turn to golf balls. Your caramel waves get tangled aroun...

    We hopped on glass And skipped on bones And when the time came We pulled our guns out And shot our targets With our hands over our eyes. For we did not know who our targets were. We simply pulled the trigger When we heard our superiors yell the command. "When you hear my voice, Y...

    My rage is black Like nail beds in the winter. It takes ragged breaths To beg for the escape from my apathetic fingers. Its heartbeat is almost too faint to hear. But it mocks my strength and continues to beat. My thumbs turn white with frost As the rest of my arms turn blue. The ange...

    I have lost my love In the mountains of the ocean. It took her from me When I was seventeen. I have been searching For a hundred years But I have found nothing Except for a pink scarf. It was her favorite color. She loved the way it popped Against her skin. She would wrap the cloth ...

    I outline your silhouette in the sky: Nine stars make one hand, And ten make the other. Your right hand was always bigger than mine. One leg is in the air, Like you plan to skip your way From earth to space, And then back again to take me with you. Your arms are in the shape of a circle, L...

    The white is a surprise against my skin. I push my hand deeper, farther, Where the cold electrocutes the veins. I watch as the crystals seep into the ageless lines on my thumb; I count ten before the rest blend together. They make one canvas of twirling lines, Where they dance to ...

    Your eyes are the timekeeper That has lovely little chats With my conscience. At nine, your irises swirl With the image Of my little feet Jumping across the old planks of wood that one day gave out on me. Ten rolls around, And I see the flower you picked for me from your mother’s g...

    My travel begins here. Where my arms Will turn to powerful wings. I watch as others transform before my eyes. I look down And see no change in my body. One cannot fly With only one arm. I yell to the others, Now fifty feet above me, But they do not turn around. My voice is muffled Whe...

    When stars come out, The sky becomes a rainbow. I wave hello at my friends, And their smiles reflect in my eyes. They spin across the horizon, Making the planets dance in place. Blue changes to green, And pink changes to purple. It is a happy place. We talk for a while, But then there is a...

    Eyes glow Ears go blind As the sky is decorated with orbs of light Daytime stars Jump through the puddles That stain the grass red Their forms Send lights through the village Ash rains down As the screams slip through the lifeless hands Of those who have fallen Sparks are lau...

    My hand was dead. My fingers were black. My knuckles were cement, my palm a dark gray. It spread to my wrist, then my arm, then my shoulder. I couldn’t shake it, couldn’t seem to destroy it; my body refused to let me. It crawled down my back, suffocating the innocence of Baby’s Breath that...

    Every gust of wind shook the lone window, rattling my bones. The lightning danced across the glass, and the crashes of thunder sent the family picture on the shelf crashing to the ground. I hated how dark it was outside; the early hours of the morning hid the storm, taunting me with what was hidde...

    “Why are you here?” I asked, my heart picking up in speed. No answer. “What do you want from me?” No answer. All I got in return was the echo of my voice on the bathroom walls, and the plunk plunk of water falling from the broken shower faucet. I reached for the edges of the sink, my knuc...

    The wind whips at my hair, willing my headband To sink to my neck My fingers yell out But I continue to squeeze them around my stick By this time my legs are screaming But I ignore their pleas And focus on my mind Which is shouting to win No obstacle can stop me Whether it be the muddy gr...

    There is a kingdom Where wind commands all No one is strong enough Or brave enough To come in its way If it is in a bad mood, It will crush you, But If you get lucky It will just push you Out of its way Not even the sound of thunder Or the blinding light of lightning Will make it co...

    I could say that I loved the cold weather The snow Coming home to a warm house And having hot chocolate by the fire. I could say that winter was my favorite season But I would be lying. I miss those warm, breezy nights When the sun doesn’t sink down the horizon Until the late evening I...

    Shining bright Through the dark, dark night Is that never ending circular light In the sky It illuminates the black And is mystical to the naked eye Yes, it’s the moon It orbits in space And is in flight at the opposite of noon Look, it’s getting bigger Or so it seems See those lit...

    When you stop to think about it, Life is funny in more way than one. Challenges to be met, Fears to overcome. There is nothing to stop from getting wet, On a day when the sky releases buckets of rain. Nothing to stop a loved one from dying, When they have cancer in their brain. Nothing to st...

    In the sky Big and white It soars high Can you guess? Kids point at it And look at it They imagine it as shapes And animals They can feel the fluffy surface As if being able to touch it They fantasize about sleeping In its comfy stuffing inside Comfy stuffing that provides a safe hav...

    A little fluttering of wings Passes my ear The sound is delicate As if a snap of a finger Could break it I turn just in time To see a yellow blur Dancing across my vision It’s small Yet it has the air Of a powerful ruler It makes one appreciate Its presence And in some ways Bow d...

    Oh, what a wonder, And I truly cannot comprehend When my pencil hits the paper, Some strange things seem to occur. It all seems overwhelming, Like a math problem I can’t solve. But at the moment all I know, Is that my mind is out of control! I see damsels in distress, Magical dragons sw...

    The time has come once again To travel to that great big world of mine. I’ve got my pajamas on, clean and comfy My slippers with the ray of sunshine Are sitting next to my bed. All I have to do is jump into the heap of sheets, And let the bliss spread Because what I look forward to every ni...

    Bolts Streak their way Down the horizon Explosions In the dark sky Shake the ground The wind Whips at the open window As I run to shut it A blanket of hail Falls from above Making clinking noises On the roof I see it then The funnel cloud I run for the basement But it is too lat...

    The water hits the rocks Like a body of rushing water The small kids peer over the edge I see a mother pull back her daughter It’s dangerous here If you’re not careful The sea water is the highest today Than it’s been all year Careful, it’s slippery On these immense, pointy ston...
