    They bask in life because they’re ignorant - acceptance is the shadow of ignorance. I’ve attempted to fake ignorance for months, now, but somewhere, somewhere  in my soul doesn’t allow me to let go of my awareness. Somewhere, somewhere, festering in the back of my mind, I k...

    One: The smartest action was to flee, But, she was a knowledge addict. He saw the chance to manipulate, And tricked the fear to dissipate. Why, why did this man have power? To inflict her with inner chaos? She gave him the deed her her heart. “Someday, we’ll never be apart.” She took...

    When he was born, he was a whole. There was the center, and the branches, The legs, the arms; the head connected everything. That is, until he was walking down the shores of the sea which he had made a tradition to walk upon. When the waters roared upwards, They roared closer to him than wha...

    It had always been his dream to fly; his reason? He was jealous of the birds. Those carefree, fluttering mongrels spending their days with their feathered wings flapping through the skies with no purpose nor care, just contentment. They will never be as great as me, so why can I not do what...

    The brisk jays do not know glass panes Know how to snap their neck, And the spiders meandering under the door Face death for the petty trek. For when the mouse makes an abode for herself Her meals are death in disguise. Not every being receives the chance to live, Even though we all get to ...

    My parents are standing in front of me with the same grins, the same intense, large eyes, the same wide arms, and offer to pull me in for an embrace. Am I missing something when they tell me they will love me for all eternity? What is wrong? What does wrong even mean? What am I missing? My teach...

    The eyes on my face weren't exactly blue-- they were almost clear, like water restrained within a glass. I was restrained within a glass. My long, blonde hair laid on my shoulders, sleek like the silk one would find dangling from the pajamas of a queen. I was the clothing on the body of a diffe...

    “Do you want a big cookie?” Billy asked. “Yes!” I yelped. “Those ones over there? The pizza sized ones?” He grasped my hand and led me over to the cookie shop in the Little Rock Mall in Arkansas. Even though I had already filled my stomach with assorted goodies throughout the day, I s...

    I don't remember your name, Or your appearance, But I'll never forget your soul. I saw you for a single day. We stood under the roaring sky, scattered raindrops fell to and fro. You said to me "When it rains, I will stand over you." It was raining tears when I stood over y...

    The plunging corners of your mouth-- that's my deepest fear. Your frown is relentless; I loathe the view of it on your face. Slowly but surely I work to pry back the levels of your soul, But what hides in plain sight, your lips; they are your soul's base. Oh, how they move in mystery...

    On occasion, my chest will clench with anxiety, And I'll fearfully wonder why you love me, Then, you'll embrace me again; I'll accept that you do, I'll pry open my clammed trust and let it be. How could I have imagined your gentle soul harming me? Behind my doubt is my illus...

    I wish I could mourn for you, Because I know that's ethical, But what I really feel for you, Is strictly inexpressible. I've seen pictures--heard stories, Heard your voice once or twice. You were a cruel, Christian woman. You were a mother and a wife. I miss you, I assume. I liked...

    If the tip breaks from the pencil, There's tension in my chest Because I drench paper with spirit, And my heart's address. I'm the president of my mind, And the queen of my heart So I can announce where to stop, And declare where to start. Since my head is a battlefield Poun...
