    Tin foil beating against sugar, Mentally, physically, collegiately; It’s a smooth ride down, but you should Cover your rock scrapes. Swaying, just brushing the brittle brick wall, I remember its absence, its construction, But not the feeling of either. It all boiled down to a pair of red s...

    I. I am no sounder than I was yesterday. I am sounder than I will be tomorrow. Inside this box I call home II. I saw silhouettes Like boxes Without labels, and fading. III. A man and a women are trapped Somewhere invisible, but not soundproof. Out of their box Leaks sad noise An...

    How does my love become ambition’s lord? Thou seems not sweeter than a dream’s white kiss. Such a detriment I cannot afford But thine eyes sing of heaven’s magic bliss. Still, my great wants, overshadowed by heart Seem to cry my wrongs in desperation. My path cannot be swayed from yours ...

    I. If I could just take these heels off Maybe I might find the courage For these blistered lumps to ease over To table eleven It’s been seven months And two hundred ten thoughts of you If you counted too I’ll believe in Santa again I liked my dress when I bought it But now, the f...

    My sanguine saint, how smeared you safety switch Your feet of clay dried out in anger’s heat A golden head, dead to suspicion’s itch The bees swarm to your loving nectar sweet A lamb had no voice to his master’s blade But blood should not be drawn for you to know Of selfish cloak, you ne...

    Two times a hundred Two hundred Two hundred times a million Two hundred million Calls Cries The sidewalk their bed, the dumpster their fridge Drug-addicted, ignorant to the scars Grinning with empty mouths That no one tries to see Four hundred million outstretched hands That reach no fur...

    Who made me your Jesus? I never asked to save you, yet Here I am, living my life for you Since when did I become so selfless, so Unaware of myself? Did you want me as your Messiah? I didn’t think you needed one, yet Here I go, comforting you in your tears What do you have to cry about...

    Another dinner date, movies and popcorn But still she remains the pinky ring princess So slight, that curl of metal Snaked around her tiny finger Will it ever come off, or Fusion to the skin? Graduation never came And he was there, but Still she remains the pinky ring princess Bought at a c...

    Open stares at her butter form So beautiful for the eye of the storm Porcelain and ivory the senses week Melts on the curves of her cheeks I ache to touch her flawless chin And feel the feathers in her skin That honey-cream ocean hair Delicate threads hovering in fruity air Run my unworthy,...

    And The People Will Be Happy Long ago, my religion teacher tells me, there was a terrible plague in an ancient land.

    The shining sun of gold and coral beams Lays bare intentions not been seen before Perverse in honest ways and morals clean Are you, whose soul has been unjustly whored Fair one, to whom I gave my weak, small heart Naught definite, Oh! what shall happen now?
