    Mirror, mirror, on the wall Who's the fairest of them all? "Not you," it says, and I fall down, down, down...to the ground. If I can't be fairest, what shall I be? The sky must be bluer than the sea. If I must be less, how much is enough? Fairest, to be fair, is not...

    If you were travel down the blue highway in my mind With its various exits, purple streetlamps and bizarre design You'd stop before you reached halfway, And if you got that far, I'd be impressed. With all the things to see And memories And forgotten worlds in there, How could you po...

    I wish I could write like a spider with inky feet; my webs would tell stories so enticing you'd forget that once you dropped in to read them, there's no getting out....

    Torash ran in front of me, pushing branches aside or hacking at them with his sword when they wouldn't give way. Our pursuers had dogs tracking our smell anyway, so no amount of caution would hide our trail until we reached the river. Speed was what mattered now. Verain ran behind me, making...

    Our house in England was called "the Old Stables," guess why? It had been the stables for the manor house two lots over. Right next to us was the carriage house, which had also been converted. All together they had been part of Baston Manor. The road was even called Baston Manor road. ...

    I stand upon a rooftop And look across the world The chimneys have all gone away The flags have come unfurled I stand upon a rooftop And gaze into the sky With the smoke and tears and ozone No starlight meets my eyes I stand upon a rooftop And stare down at my feet My holey shoes and...

    How do you live in such a mad world? The perfume you breathe is made of crushed pearls Where the red high-heeled shoes stalk the concrete Card towers tilt to the drum of dead feet The pigeons all watch from their gargoyle homes As if they, the scavengers, see while they comb All our garbage ...

    The tree was humming. Not buzzing, like bees hard at work, and not singing, like nymphs swimming in starlight, but humming - a rhythmic, resonant tone that I could feel as a shiver down my spine and deep in my bones. I imagined I could already see sparks of green inch...

    I wish I could write about moths. Their delicate, fluttering wings dipped in ink would make beautiful art. I wish I could write about starlight. The magic of the heavens come down to earth showering radiance. I wish I could write about roses. Velvet carpets for the water worlds in...

    Do you remember when we first met? I said I liked your bow tie. You said "thanks." I asked if we could be friends. You said "sure." We talked about each other and when I left I asked for a hug. You gave me a really good one. I came back the next week and you remembered w...
