    There is a forest lost In me Buried under more useful things An ocean swells in my lungs I cough quietly behind my hands I keep my fingers slack and show Only the pretty outer sides I try to remember what I've been taught And forget what I know And I'm sorry my inside voice Is lou...

    If it is true, you are what you eat Then I shall put myself on a diet Of dust motes and empty space To become what you reflect A man is a mirror, after all I shall dine on snowflakes Become delicate and transparent Swallow promises whole So nothing will be expected I will lay myself d...

    What would you think if you knew that your refrigerator is stocked with beef and dairy from mistreated animals, animals that were raised in cells too small to lie down or turn around in? They’ve been pumped full of hormones, their diseases left untreated, and you are eating it. This is reality. Fa...

    In my mothers Volvo somewhere Between the dash and rearview mirror Hangs a wooden rosary. She picked it up somewhere between our last eviction notice and mexico, exactly where, I can't say. Sometimes she'd ask me if I knew Why she hung it there. I always knew, but She liked to tell...

    I know. I know that you see me. You know. You know I'm alone. No one. No one will come for me. I know, that you know, I'm no one. Sometimes. Sometimes I wish that I was different. I'm not. I'm not fascinating. Perfect. Perfect is not a word associated with me. ...

    I can’t believe you almost died, Have you any idea how long I cried? You fought ‘for the country’, and ‘for me’ But daddy please, why can’t you see. Id rather lie with you and count sheep Then waste the night away on sleep. The letters you wrote, and I received, Mean nothing to me...

    I know you’re very busy, So ill cut right to the chase. I have just one request, If you have the time and space. I’m not asking for a bicycle, Or a hula hoop to twirl. But I still would like one thing, Even if I’m no longer a little girl. I’m not calling for All pain to cease. ...

    And he held my hand. Whispered sweet insanities in my ear. Told me stories of princes and knights, And the beautiful princesses that Everyone loved. I’d like to be his princess. He liked to sing me songs. About sunshine, And rainbows, And puppy dogs. He loved his songs very much. I wi...

    My normally pale bark, flushed a deep shade of scarlet, radiating heat. Humiliation so deep, I fear I will not resurface. Tears threaten to give me away. They want to spill down. Fall, fall, until they are free from my unworthy body. I can not release them. They will sweep away everyone Ive ever car...

    I can’t write, as you’ll soon realize. I can’t spill my dark thoughts onto parchment, and create something beautiful. When my hand meets a pen, they do not have an instant connection. They do not work together to make the world look up and say wow, or ummm, or even what the hell. I can...

    When I see you, I feel emotions Running wild through my head. No sense to them. Just perfectly ordered chaos. The world doesn’t stop, It moves faster. The tempo to a song We danced to once. The oblivion I feel When I see the emeralds That are the windows to your soul, Is unattainabl...

    The key that you possess, opens up my world. A world i never thought i'd share, the key, yours to hold. Yet there it is upon your palm, no hint of past abuse. And as i'd hoped it's found it place ready for proper use. As i hand it over, something has begun. As i hold the...

    I write For myself To be free Because I cant paint Or make music Or even sing very good I have too many secrets To keep to myself That can spill out Through my words Like dark stains On the white cloth Of the society That wants My secrets, Just not the ones That cast shadows On the...

    “Do it” I say, challenging him. He glances at his watch, even in a time like this he still worries about other things, far away from me. They call him away far more then I’ve ever called him back. “Do it” I want him to. To much of a good thing is bad. To much of a bad thing is worse. He...

    I feel like there is a gun resting against my head. No, not my head. My leg or something. If the trigger were to be pulled, i wouldn't die. I wouldn't cease to exist. I would live on, but not the same way i did. I would never be whole again, i would be crippled. But with all these woulds a...

    Chasing after the wind, is as impossible as it sounds. Some say its a waste of time, but i still fallow it around Across the map of life, the wind is sure to go, swirling just in front of me, a literal airshow Some let their life, pass them by, collecting countless sins, But i will spe...
