    I'm sitting here wondering What I could do To show you that it’s worth it to stay. I’ve been where you are. Seen the things you’ve seen. Been Where you’ve been. Yet, I know…I desperately know, Life is hard and short and all together worthless. Except for those who make it big...

    I have a bad habit of letting people know How much they mean to me. I’ll swoon all day over the people I love. I’ll never stop telling them how much I care And how much I would give just to let them know They’re wonderful. I have a bad habit of letting people know How much I care....

    I died a little that day. No one told me for 7 whole days. Then, “good morning” followed by “he’s dead.” I didn’t know how to feel. So I cried. And screamed. And cursed. Demanded. Bargained. Was furious. But mostly, I broke down. And died a little....

    I don’t want to deal with it. The moments that separate us are the hardest. The days, the weeks, the months, the years. They fly but, yet stand still like a lake covered in ice. I don’t want to know it. It’s over. Isn’t it?...

    I look in the mirror, And can’t believe what I see. Who is that girl, Staring back at me? Her eyes are threaded with crimson, Her hands, they shake and they bounce. Her hair is thin and matted, Her mouth is dirty and diseased. Her eyes look, but do not see, Who is this girl? It can...

    Where do we go when we’re gone? There’s a farm we reside in, there is no such thing as death. Is that where our dog Scruffy went? There’s a farm we reside in, there is no such thing as death. Where do we go, when we die? There’s heaven, there’s hell, and you’ll decide where to g...

    I have made myself Into a machine. I have done so Deliberately, In order to endure, In order not to feel— But it has killed my soul. I have deliberately Killed my senses— I have deliberately Died, In order to go on With the outward Form of living. I have deliberately Cut myse...

    There is dust on my nose And buttons that are my eyes Are coming unthreaded. She forgot me, And I am lonely, Shoved in a taped-up box In the back of a closet, Next to Sally the doll Who sings. I remember her, Blonde ringlets bouncing As she ran, she and I, arm in arm. I watched, As the ...

    I took long walks That multiplied my body into Companionable parts. My hands each held Onto another, As my lungs copied Painful sighs. My eyes stared into The depths of the ocean As I heard the Waves crash against my feet… I took long walks That multiplied my body into Companiona...

    The day, it was Christmas, and all through the house, noises erupted, no one was quiet, not even a mouse. No one would go near it, the door of the house, fearing, it would yield an unwanted truth. But everything would go as planned today. The doorbell rang, almost violently, and a well built man...

    The Recruitment: They always come, with their uniforms a little too big and their smiles a little too wide. They came for you father, and your uncle, long before your birth. When you were merely eight, they came for your older brother and he walked away with them, never to be seen again. And now ...

    His love is a deep red, that bleeds out endlessly from his heart His endurance is a flaming orange as he runs from life to life from end to end trying to be the change he seeks His optimism is a sunny yellow that keeps me smiling, that keeps me going from day to day, from disappoin...

    We move beyond cars and trucks, all of the drivers faceless people... I have to wonder, if I had the chance would I try to know them? If I had the chance would I reach out a hand to caress a bruised heart? Would I smooth one'e wrinkled brow and calm one's racing mind? Would I ...

    Sometime I sneak out of my room when this old house is silent and go into the basement. A piano sits there, quietly wondering when anyone will come to it again. It sighs as I sit carefully on the old wooden bench. It grins its white and black teeth as I place my hands softly on the keys,...

    I knew, from the moment I saw him, that I would love him, even if it killed me. Once, a long time ago, I could’ve sworn my life to the fact that we’d be together forever. Look where that got me…heartbroken (I broke my own heart….at least I’m good at something.). But hey, let’s start at t...

Home is us loving one another again. Home is having my family not torn apart by stupid things. Home is my uncl...
