    You will regret every chance to challenge yourself you don’t take. There is something in you, and in every person, worth showing. Find that something and let the world see it. You will meet some people who will care about you. However, many people will not. Some will try and fail, ...

    I tried to write you a love note but wound up with some jumbled mess about the space between high and low tide- how those underground crustaceans never know whether to scuttle or stay buried in the sand like how I never know whether to speak or keep my head down on the table. And the hai...

    When I first saw you, you knocked me off my feet. Your eyes so bright they stopped me in my tracks- a sucker punch to the face That left me on the ground, shocked and seeing stars. I tried to get back up but you smiled and called me pretty, so you might as well have kicked me in the gut...

    What do I do? I thought to myself. After however many odd years, there you were standing across the room as distant as a stranger. It felt like summer because every “f*** you” had evaporated and every “f*** me” particle by dense particle lifted into the air and the two hung there li...

    Tell me about the days when we’d get lost Just to see what we would find And the wakeful nights were evanescent, iridescent cross-process dreams. I like the feel of a dark blue day. It’s heavy on my shoulders. Lately I’ve felt nothing at all. Nothing to carry, nothing to hold. No we...

    Thoughts wind like wind that rustles trees and ripples water, cold enough to cut through skin. So I close my doors and windows. When thoughts rattle my mind's thin, dry, walls it makes the dreadful sound of a skull caving in on itself. So I stick my head in a lukewarm tub until I star...

    Everyone remembers when Alec Fischer died, but nobody remembers Alec Fischer. We remember his death because it reminded us that everything counts. It reminded us of every time we passed him in the hall without seeing him. Every time we snickered at his strangeness. It reminded us of ourselves. Not o...

    I had the most wonderful dream last night...I don't remember what it was about exactly, because...well, you know how it is with dreams; they're elusive. But, I remember waking up and wanting so desperately to sleep again. I wasn't tired at all, but I...I just missed the feeling of being -happy-. How...

    I Never went to sleep because when I did, I'd dream of swimming towards where the sky meets the ocean longing to reach the sun. I Never let my guard down because when I did People got too close and I am claustrophobic and, the closer they are the worse they can sting. I Always ke...

    Writer's Block will be the death of me I swear, it'll come quick and silent Like a cancer of the creative soul I wish I could write a poem with this line: "Dewdrops--the tears of morning" in it But I don't know what the poem would be about And maybe "morning" should be "mourning" I wish I c...

    Turn back the clocks to twelve hours ago So I can see the sunset stretch across the ­horizon So the day can be fresh and bright And I can wake up again Tell me it's a new day Lead me to the place where the sea meets the land So I can watch the sand turn to shore So I can run along the...

    I am the cat that bats at butterflies it knows aren't there that chases dogs up trees that sharpens its declawed paws on cardboard and yowls at the moon I am the beach whose waters are cold and whose sand is rocky and whose oysters have all had their pearls stolen I am the snake whose...

    The harsh wind blows Working against me Pushing me back Blowing away my hat Footprints have engraved the unmapped snow Painting a pattern behind them A small part Of who they are Long, deep strides have stepped here Leaving a pattern of confidence behind They look strong, purposeful Crush...

    The most frustrating disease A writer has to fight Is when the hand will not respond And refuses to write The most aggravating curse A word-artist can endure Is when the mind just closes up Like a vaulted door Your fists will start to clench Your teeth will start to grind You'll thi...
