    Youth. The violence and beauty of every emotion astounds, Stealing our breath so that they may live, Sweeping our minds away into the simple silence, The intense complexity of imagining better days, Better places to be, Though we can think of no better place, Home, When the time to depart ar...

    I'm going to miss this, When all I have left is the past, The light of sweet memories gracing your faces, Laughter echoing in my head like a beautiful melody, When things won't be as simple as a phone call, And a fifteen minute wait. I am going to miss the love, Passed so freely bet...

    I feel it in my soul, This yearning, Sending a shiver down my spine with each caressing breeze. I see it in open plains, On train tracks, Sauntering from one rolling hill to the next. Following a wooded trail, Going only God knows where, But isn't that part of the fun? I feel it in the...

    Bravery. It is countering the avarice of the world with avarice, And delivering to the poor. It is charging danger for the sake of another, Fear of death abandoned. It is standing up for what is right, When everyone else is sitting down. It is staring into the eyes of death, And daring to li...

    I don’t know why, All I know is that I’m afraid. Maybe it’s because I prefer different things, The way the breeze catches her locks, Shining so beautifully in the sun, The gentle curve of her hips, As compared to the way he runs a hand over his head, Ruffling and fluffing the perfect ch...

    In a house as cold as stone, Two lovers cease to hold each other. There are no comforting words, Only bitter exchanges, Used when the children aren't around, Or can't understand. In a house as cold as stone, Harsh words fall on sensitive ears, Only pretending not to care, Horrible...

    Revenge is sweet, Or so they say, And this is true, Until it rots, Turns sour on your tongue, Leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. Terrorism is a disease, And war is the cure. Or so I've heard. But violence is violence, No matter how you spin it. I'm not saying don't defe...

    All the monsters in my head, They call to me, their voices dead, Telling me of things to come, Pounding, beating like a drum. They speak of life, This thrumming throng, Converse of strife, Blur right and wrong. Piper and fife, They pull me along, And though weakness is rife, They make m...

    Like Henry David Thoreau, I find myself in the woods, Because I wish to live deliberately. Only through nature do I transcend, See clearly through life's everyday haze. It is only through Your work of art I find myself, Realize that I'm Yours, And that I wish to live deliberately fo...

    Look at you, Both of you. Where has the love gone? Where is the happy couple? The very ones I used to gaze at in awe, Snapping candid photos of hand-holding, Of gentle smiles, Crinkling the corners of your eyes. Those eyes, Eyes that once held love, Now refuse to meet, Looking everywhere ...

    I wish there was some way, Any way at all, To sum up how I feel about this, About you. I wish there was an easy way to say that I like you, Some way to soften the blow those horrible words inflict. I wish you could find it in your heart to forgive those words. I cannot help them. I wish you ...

    Relentless, Pulsing, pounding, Electronic beat, Floods my ears, Rattles my chest. Give way to a gentle melody, Trickling smoothly from a guitar's belly. Such sweet symphonies coaxed forth, Persuaded to exist by roaming, calloused fingers, Guided by a broken heart. Repetitive, Vain, v...

    If this is all I am allowed, I am content, For merely being in your presence allows my spirits to take flight, Soar. A simple glance in your direction makes my heart, My body's metronome, Skip a beat, And fall into a more comfortable rhythm, Despite increase in speed. Oh, how I wish yo...

    Overwhelming. An enveloping, All-consuming sense of black. Pressure, Leaves me deaf, dumb and blind. What part of my soul remains untainted, Untouched, Pure? What part of my mind is whole, Resistant to my ever-collapsing world? All joy flickers like a flame in the wind, Sputtering and dyi...

    If I must work one hundred hours, And sleep but one, I fear your faith in me is too great, For in that hundredth hour I rub sleep from my eyes, Having stumbled nearly one thousand times, And faltered a great deal more. My feet are as anvils, Doing more bad than good as they clumsily carry me ...

    How may I say how I feel? How can I describe to you how much, And little, Makes its way through my mind? You ask how I am, But how can I answer truly? How can I bear to speak my worries? For when I try, Everything that boils inside of me, Threatens to spill over. How can I possibly trap my...

    I stumble after you like a child, Cutting corners as I go, But you're still too far to catch me when I fall. You're unattainable, The one thing I want, The one thing I can never have. You walk the straight and narrow, I swerve left and right, A car on black ice. The others, Lust....

    What is this feeling? Upon awakening I was reborn, Laid my eyes upon you, and, Despite our having met, Saw you for the first time, From a new perspective through old eyes. Such beauty, Radiating from the inside-out, Did cause my voice to shake, My hands to tremble, My cheeks to flush with ...

    I love to sit Listening to the birds Singing sweet songs of redemption. Their melodious whistling Speaks to my soul, Promising the hope of a new life. In that single, solitary moment I see it. But something moves, Makes a noise, And it fades. I try in pointless vanity To call it back, S...

    I melt in the heat of your gaze, Lose myself in your presence, Forget who I am. I don’t care. The sweet symphony that is your voice surrounds me, Deafens me to my self-doubt. With you I can spread my wings, Touch the sky.. I am light as a feather. With you the world becomes better, Brigh...

    The land of J. M. Barrie, A place of childhood and freedom, Is an interesting concept to someone like me. Thrust into a land of mandatory maturity, Forced to leave my childish views of life behind, Forced to accept the dismal world for how it truly is, I am someone who cynically mocks my own d...

    Unfeeling hands, Face with no eyes, Never realize, What in me lies. Speaking feelings hurts, Burns my tongue like hot coals on the way out. To give them voice is to give them power, So I'm silent. But then again, Maybe ignorance is not so blissful, As to hold it in. My resolve, Is u...
