    I never wanted it to end like this. I'm still in shock; if I could rewind time I would take it back to Thursday at noon, I would kissed you harder by the tree. I wouldn't have rushed back inside no matter what I had to do. I would've held you close by my locker, put my head on your chest to feel ...

    It's odd how things change, and yet stay the same, ever-changing, yet steadfast, a label, a craving a game You do things you never dreamed in your dizziest dreams you would do, and it's partially for him, partially for you, but you love all that comes with it the old and the new beca...

    I sit, dangled, limbs like wooden features: lifeless and disconnected. I will my fingers to move and pick up the pen to write on my blank slate but there are no muscles to shift - no backbone. In front of me, I see a doll staring back, her brown eyes and frizzy curls facing me, silver...

    Deep breaths blow like cool winds And my leaves shiver, Chilled from the cold Until they freeze and fall, and I'm left Bare...

    A tan shade with dark corners, Jagged edges, And cuts, spread in random places: I suppose the desk and I may be Twins, Separated at birth. Life hasn’t been an easy ride for either of us; It sits, used and abused, by ungrateful students As they doodle on the wood And as for me, I’ve ...

    Everything I could never tell you Is playing on a broken record In my mind. I keep reliving how I can no longer trust you To trust me, How you took my life and put it behind bars, Throwing away the only set of keys, And how you took away my innocence without even asking If I would plead gu...

    My house doesn't feel like home anymore; its not where I'm supposed to be. I can't find a safe haven anywhere: not at school, amongst friends, family, and especially not alone when you're gone. And I know you leave from time to time, packing your bags and going on short trips, but w...

    You get used to it after a while: this horrid rainfall, diluting your blood, but it doesn't make things any easier. No matter how many times you watch the drops fall, pitter patter outside your window, you still have to clothe yourself in winter boots and heavy, waterproof jackets so y...

    I want you to know one thing: I am always going to walk down that path and smile. I'm the sort of person who feeds off of reflecting on the past, reliving tender moments - and well, you were pretty damn significant. I want you to know one thing: a part of me will always be yours. ...

    When I was only an infant, My grandmother knit me a blanket: About 60cm long and wide, It was a baby pink, Covering my tiny shoulders, My fragile fingers and toes. Within the year, I grew out of the blanket. Already, my legs stretched out from it's cover, Not enough fabric to keep my body...

    What caused my bones to feel the chill Was not the sun hiding away from me - It wasn't the dark clouds, The silent night, Or the eerie croaking of crickets. It was the wind that blew In the darkness, And that it was my fault, Dragging old air behind me as I ran, Trying to catch up to you ...

    When the sun rose that morning, I told you, then and there, That my lips were poison, That my venom would leak, Dripping down your tongue and staining Every last organ in your body; And what did you do about my warnings? You took me into your arms And you held me Kept me warm, Wrestling ...

    It's back again, The pain; And it came back cutting Like a knife, It's sharp blades piercing my heart, Twisting my veins, Puncturing my lungs Until my pain can reach the clouds, My screams flying amongst them, in Silence. I used to have a higher tolerance, A better threshold for pain -...

    It still feels like a bad dream, like I'm going to wake up any second now. I never knew how quickly I could get used to something new, so much that it became a security blanket. How strange; it's so difficult to describe. Its almost like a change in vocabulary. A little quirk of mine is that I'll...

    Dear Santa, It’s me; I know its been a while since I’ve written to you. You probably started to think I didn’t believe anymore – I won’t lie, I didn’t for a while, but I always hoped. So why did I write this year, and not years before? What changed my mind, you ask? I didn’t know w...

    You know, you have these rings of green around your pupils, right in the middle of your crystal-blue eyes. They're quite evident, too. I can't believe I hadn't noticed sooner how green they really were, and how they contrast with the rest of your iris. At the park today, right before you kissed me...

    Those two minutes may have just been the most petrifying moments of my life. My dad and I have always been close. When I was 2 years old, he enrolled me in swimming classes, holding me as I splashed in the water with my chubby toddler hands. I loved the water, and I loved Saturday morning swimmi...

    Dear Santa, Thank you. It got to me about a week late, but I received my parcel - I guess I owe my little sister an apology for telling her you didn't exist. I've never received a GIFT like this one before, you know: it had a lot of small parts that made it mean so much more. Here's how it we...

    How odd and amazing it is To think that someone Who was once a stranger Is now the reason behind the smile You wake up with every morning, To think that his fingers have mapped Destinations on your body Where you never new land existed, That his lips have kissed holy ground, And his tongu...

    You are the drunken kiss that made me feel again, My smeared red lipstick, ruby red. You are the medicine to my numb heart, Thoughts dancing in my head. You are honest words, a gentle heart, a jewel, one of a kind. You are words on blogs at midnight, feelings my vocabulary struggles to fin...

    He settled me down for a little while, Chased away my demons; I used to have this fear of staying at home On the weekends, Being in my room every evening, Missing out on life - He changed that. When he spoke, I heard music And I could taste the notes on his breath, Could smell the liquor...

    He solves math problems in his sleep, and I collect vintage tea cups. He thinks I'm silly For searching the back corners of thrift shops, gathering vinyls, never planning on buying a record player; I keep telling him I like how they collect Dust, How they are bent at the corners, scratche...

    1. A mechanic: someone who can fix my broken parts, put the pieces back together, and identify the missing chips - parts I lent out to fix others and never got back. 2. A scientist: someone who can gauge my reaction under any circumstance; what state I'm in at different temperatures...

    She sits cross-legged on her mattress wrapped in white blankets wondering who you see when you look into her eyes Would it pain you to see her burn her lungs, wanting the chance to feel something more than the sweetness of Kinder Eggs inside her? If she gave herself away to a stranger...

    You feed your soul with salt And carbs And ramble DIZZY dreams, With a childlike mind, you wander Far - Though not out of reach It seems. And I lie in bed as you indulge In flavours, to me Unknown, Wondering If the taste has set you free Or made your thirst-driven tongue Cry for home...
