    Today I actually opened my mouth Wide, as if I would be able to see my empty stomach in the mirror and realized I've gotten myself here Again without trying or really Realizing or even trying to stop myself. I never wanted to be here again, but now (as before) I'm finding I don�...

    The dark night sky holds a cheshire cat moon, under which we sit hand-in-hand looking up. Your smile seems real, and mine seems real too, but the cheshire cat smiles the biggest....

    The sun goes up and the sun goes down, and we watch it go and we let it go. We let everything go, we have no choice-- we just watch it go-- and sometimes there is no "good-bye."...

    I'll write you a poem with skin and bones and blood so you can see what I do, what I think all the time. It's a poem all right; you'll see gut-wrenching emotion behind it. But you'll interpret it differently than I do, and that's what I'm afraid of....

    I hope the Ashes fall back to where they belong in the Ground, growing Flowers-- maybe Roses, maybe not. But they will fall, unless you stop them, and things will grow-- Hope, Love, maybe Joy-- eventually will grow if you let them....

    I remember who you were, I recall what you did, but you're very different now from when you were a kid. How could it ever be that you've gone through such a change? What in life caused you the need to rearrange? And now I don't recognize who you've come to be-- How stra...

    She reached her tiny, chubby arm up towards the dangling sparkle, fingers opening and closing like a lazy clam, trying to grab hold of the pretty thing. It clinked and clanked, but no matter how she stretched, she couldn’t reach. Easily giving up, she instead grabbed her foot in the footie pajamas...

    Birds chirped, the sun shone in our faces, we picked dandelion bouquets, we caught caterpillars and named them before setting them free, we played tag on the playground, we swung on the swings: welcome to the fifth grade. What a wonderful year. Don’t you remember? The last year of recess and “pl...

    I'm always there for you but who was there for me When I dropped the baby on its head, metaphorically? I was there for you, who was there for me? When I jumped, did you say no? Hypothetically. I was there, was always there but never there, Impossible but true. How does it happen? Knowing t...

    I hate specific memories.... I just remembered that dying my hair doesn't change my person I guess I forgot.... Sometimes I wonder If everything I do is really a mask If my clothing style is just a cover, and all my likes and dislikes are there simply to hide who I really am I wonder ...

    I saw the girl first at school. She stood looking out the window, out over the schoolyard. It was before class started and everyone stood around in groups talking. I was with my friends too, but I wasn't really listening to what they were saying. Because I was focused on the girl. She was the ...

    I’m sure if I was able to I would be crying tears for you. If only my eyes would listen With soulful tears they would glisten. I wish I could cry. I couldn’t show you why, But I’d show you how much I care. I’d show you with Sapphires, not Rubies. I’d show you with Diamonds and Gold...

    I need to try to write a poem that follows rules. I don't know what all the rules are except a few. I know rhythms; I don't know rhymes; I don't know types. I've heard of some like haiku or sonnets, ballads. But I am not good with strict rules; I like to flo...

    The boy constantly carried me around with her on the streets of St. Paul. He kept me inside the hard case with several picks scattered on the bottom and poking into my back. I didn’t mind though, because he often took me out to show me the city and show others his talent. I loved him so much. He n...

    Dear ________, I thought it might be fun to write a letter to you, because I like to write things. It’s hard to figure out what to write when I don’t really know you. Maybe someday I will really meet you and I can know your name, but right now I only know your face. Pen-pals? Maybe, but I pre...

    I walk onto the bus and, sadly, it is crowded. That never really happens on my bus. “Well, okay, fine. I’ll just sit in the back,” I think to myself. So I go and sit in the only open seat there is, near the back in front of some loud annoying boys that every bus would not be complete w...

    Dance is a magical thing, and feet are rhythmical. Poetry is enchanting, and when intertwined with your feet, you may sing without a voice. Guess what? This is what I live for, singing with no voice, in silence, but in the most potent of words. I love the energy needed and exerted in the dance. ...

    Maybe if someone would pay attention this world wouldn’t be so full of ghosts, of human ghosts who never were given a second chance. They are called mockchildren, and they are my brothers and sisters. They are all invisible to the world because no one bothered to pay attention, no one. They just s...

    White bones, glowing in the moonlight They dance around and rattle, teasing me with their perfection. “Look at me, look at me! I am all bones! I am perfect, perfect, flawless bones!” They say to me, “And what are you? Look at that, you’re all fat! Where are your bones? You can’t se...

    Silently fall the tears. Though silent, encompasses all her fears. All her fears fall down her face, Knows she takes up too much space. In the little white room, gives herself a hug and is led to her doom. Hooked up to wires, tells herself to be strong. she knows strength requires that s...
