    I left you here twice. Once I cried- you didn’t know. I got on here twice. Once, with you, as a friend. Once in the early morning A lover running home. Now, again, I pass. You do not get on....

    I have the piano room all to myself today. It’s 4:30 on a Friday, no one is at school, even the teachers have better places to be. Right now all I want is this piano. Every other day I practice on the discarded piano outside the music hall that has multiple broken keys, four of which are crucial t...

    The cottage was Teresa's for the weekend. She shared it with her brother who lived closer, and so he used it more often, but she specified she wanted it all to herself this weekend. The old man had lived here, built it on some land he thought no one would miss. He didn't realize everyone e...

    You smile as you kiss each other one last time before he gets off at fourteenth street, possibly never to be seen again. You try to memorize each other’s faces “for one last look” and then the train stops and he pulls away. When he leaves there’s a gaping hole on your left side where he sat ...

    “So what was that, another one time thing?” “Is that what you want?” “…No.” “Me neither… but you’ll be gone again soon. What do we do?” “What are you doing tonight?” There, you’ve slipped back into your old spot, right there next to him. It’s good to be ...

    "Pose for the picture, my pretty girl," Says the husband to the wife. She smiles, there's nothing natural to it. Her pearl white teeth gleam, her cheeks topped with a rosy tint, but there is nothing natural to her about that smile. For him, it's just right. "Again, Again,&...

    What lies behind the perfection Of your chiseled jaw, your lion's main? Is it truly you, or is it all deception? Through everyone's perception You're seductive as a flame What lies behind the perfection? You're the face of a generation Of smokers, of drinkers, all th...

    For a 16-year-old girl, I stink at texting. I text a grand total of five people and only when I absolutely must. It took me a long time to trust those people enough to leap with joy every time I text them, and even so, I do not do so lightly. I don't arbitrarily text people “Hey, what's up?...

    Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? No, for you last longer than a single day in May And a summer's day does not please all As oh so many prefer the winter, spring, or fall Indeed though art as valuable as gold, And trick fools with fool's gold which all fools hold But y...

    Its sleeves once filled with him Now fall off my arms. The smell of his skin lingered Even after he was gone. Now it smells like me And my emptiness. It is the only thing left From when I was happiest. Reminding me how otherwise In some other world I'm till looking in his eye...

    Green to some means jealousy I know that shade of green. I've felt it as a child And since every mile. Green to some means spring season Oh how I know that shade of green In that time I knew green best And lo with a loving caress. Green to some means eternity I long to know ...

    Theo, How strange is it that I only write Theo? I could have written Theo, dearest Theo, my Theo, or rather my once Theo. Most people start letters with "dear (insert name,)" even to people- no, particularly to people who they do not consider "dear" at all. Thus I thought it mi...
