    There are no emotions to the universe. For what else can we call this black? By God, how it swells around the cosmos, like ink burgeoning from a pen, the ink creation was written in, the ink that formed us, birthed our planet and gave it sisters, the wild, infinite black which claims us still....

    There was no grass when the bombs first exploded. There was no bird song, no clouds or trees as the force shattered our streets. There were no people no strangers or friends, no family existed to hold. Brilliant, burning light swept away all of it. We had talked of this before, buried in hom...

    Little, fuzzy brown spiders dangle dangerously, freshly hatched, above the cool black circle of icy coffee, left abandoned on the blue countertop. Their furry legs pet the air, stroke the wind currents as they sway, helplessly guided by the fickle patterns. Their mother, drained by her ordeal...

    I held his hand, blue with frostbite and secretly hoped he would die. I hoped his eyes, bright and bold would never open again and that we would bury him two days from now after we had signed the papers with blue ink and sent out stately invitations written in a navy font gilded with gold. I...

    A drawing hung crookedly on a blank slab of empty wall. At the age of four, I was an artist. At four and two days, your hand tore it down, shaking with rage you spat on it as I stood hands bruised and cut from your metal work boots. My neck bent and cracked when you seized my chi...

    From filth rises beauty, is it not always true? Look at me he says, gentle hands grasp my chin. I flinch, pull away tugging shame over my head a heated blanket to hide my face. Look at me look at me. I've heard some mushroom rooted in soil and loose, tainted dirt adorn their unha...

    I dreamed a dream and then it thrived Red dust sprayed across the sand Wild wolves in haunting prayer A catholic churches silent demand Happy days are here again And a quiet man determined to live Fast paced always moving Quick as a rabid bear In a land of dead how can there be living? Enor...

    At night, the city seems to come to life Flaws all hidden by the forgiving dark People stir, and like the flash of a knife The empty streets fill; Goths head to the park Finding safety in the crushed velvet black The kids drink and dance in underground clubs The colored lights adding the years...

    In 1998, can you remember? The morning glories blooming golden yellow in the sun, Daddy loaded the van with picnics and Mommys thinnest sheets. And we pulled away from home gladly. Willingly. Ready for a change, any change. A gorgeous day with promises hanging like ripe fruits in the air, Wai...

    Strong marble courses overhead Allow a sense of pride Work so much work all for this See a group of men Clothed in clouds with soft purple shot through People the people Weak chins soft hands Never leaders never seen wars Plump bellies betray Wars need not be seen Daggers make up for exper...

    The symphony of silence Oh, how it sounds so loud No one is talking yet But I can hear the anger speaking Crackling across the room Could it only have been six years ago That he loved to hold her hand And whisper about the future in her ear Has she forgotten the times In the satiny dark of ...

    He stands at the door waiting for you to come home. He doesn’t see me watching from the hallway, tucked away in shadows, tucked away in misery. He doesn’t see me anymore, he doesn’t smile and hold me up to the bright sky, an offering to the shining sun anymore. I asked him to make his spaghett...

    The buildings were full of pain, groans and screams echoing out like an ugly symphony, one that no one wanted to hear. Everything was cold and gray, everything was dark and the bitter air rank of rotting flesh, of rotting souls. Sometimes, guns would go off, we would hear them in the distance, and w...

    She tells me I would look beautiful But I thought I already was She points to my face Cut here, tuck there She smiles through a mask As she caresses my Smooth skin “Someday,” she tells me “Someday you won’t look so young and pretty.” I gaze into the mirror Solemn blue eye...

    I know that they’re there. I can hear them, little, biting whispers in the dark that sting me. They talk, no, they mutter nonsense words at me until I can’t, I can’t do it any more. I collapse, broken and drowning beneath a sea of stinging whispers, a sea of black words. I can see how you look...

    His hand smoothly poured my drink into my glass I watched the cool clear liquid swirl around My ears closed to its silent screams of warning I took the glass and smiled a thank you Didn’t see his eyes follow me when I left Sitting down at my lonely black table Way in the back I shifted in m...

    I dance all alone Arms stretched out to empty air, I twirl A silent ballroom A lonely street A quiet stage, all alone I dance My feet hit the floor The sound guides me through the steps My own little beat For my legs to follow People clap, ladies cheer, gentlemen sigh as I whirl by All alo...

    God how I love you It hurts so much to say It’s like I was in agony And you took the pain away So now I will follow you Lead me through the war Lead me through the blood and pain That I would have relished in before It’s all I can do To keep my eyes off of you I can’t help the way I ...

    You’ve gone And I have left You’re somewhere Maybe downing a couple beers and bragging About the stupid girl you played I thought you loved me When you held me in your arms And I thought I loved you Every time I saw you smile Oh but tell me! Did she love you too When you flashed that ...

    The trees in the black woods tremble in an invisible wind as the moon glowed brighter. Dark clouds blew across the sky, casting threatening shadows down upon the earth. In the heart of the dark, lonely forest, a wolf howl rips through the still, tension filled air. Only one person walks these parts ...
