    Her essence is made up of 1 part beautiful soul, 2 parts broken heart Every word she speaks is attached at the seams to a prayer for sunny days and starry nights The syllables leave her lips penetrating the stale air around her like soldiers drafted to the front lines They march in...

    I put an ear to your chest the other day but heard only silence from your pores I took a fist and knocked but only echoes came to greet me My fist bruised and I knocked down your ribcage to check for a pulse But all that was in there was empty black and the subtle beat of crimson ...

    When I close my eyes I can build it even higher, this wall that I put around my heart. Not anything could break it, not sticks, not stones, not bullet-studded words. I'll keep on adding bricks and tie them together with blue heart strings until I can feel the cold, hard...

    It was just reaching sunset when I opened the door to her room. The shafts of waning sunlight reached through the crooked blinds onto the creme-colored carpet like spilled ink. The walls farthest from the door were cloaked in dark shadows and all the furniture was upturned. The blood-red bed sheets ...

    He takes a paint brush to her ivory skin and matches it with the color of the soft, pink lips that hide whatever lies within then adds a dimple on the side that gathers next to a radiant smile the one with the rose-colored lips and makes living another day worth the while. He plasters on ...

    Dear, please be careful how you walk, someone might think you know exactly what you want, and what would we do then? and please be careful the way you talk because you might say just the right thing, and what would we do then? and please be careful who you look at with those big bright shin...

    The carpet chafed my elbow as I lifted my torso off the ground to sit up straight. "Come on, just stay a little longer," he said playfully, tugging at my wrist from below me on the floor as I struggled to free myself from his grasp. "I'm sorry, I can't, my mom expects me...

    Her body is patched together with those memories that pound in her head at night, The tears that cover her frayed body glistening in the dark making her look like some sort of superman Her soft round head a movie of every time you weren't there to tell her the everythi...

    An offering of peace, of friends at the least A bargain of 2 yesterdays for a tomorrow A deal for half a smile if I gave you a laugh to borrow A simple hello for a giveaway goodbye Only a word in between for a catch of the eye Tell me, do you have anything cheaper than reality?...

    "If I chased my shadow into the light of day, would it vanish long enough just to hear me say that I like the lime glazing the grass and the water that douses the sky, the perfect breeze across this world that whisks away the lies. I love the melody across the creek and the fire roar...

    The sunset fell to a mountain peak tonight, the iced caps shimmering in the evanescent relief of a dimming sky. And when the falling sun flattered the moon's newborn reflection, it softly kissed the surfacing palette of stars good night, caressing the darknes...

    Here comes that feelin’ I thought I’d forgotten, the one that enclosed me, and kept me from walkin’. And here I go again, screamin’ through cracks in the pavement, trying to remember how our late-night lullaby went. The one I closed my eyes to, the one I hear your voice ...

    The standing moon brimming over every star, making all surfaces mirror a September beauty. Casting a cool silver blanket rippling across a vaporous breeze. The way you gather me close to the warmth seeping from your gaze, your face polished to a look of ease. Your eyes flickering between a painting ...

    You asked me for a penny today, with an angel-infested smile planted upon your face, to throw the glittering copper into a marble for an inconceivable child's wish. A wish your hopes soar too high for, yet live off. A space you fill with tossing pennies and chasing dreams into every morning. th...

    I am the rhythmic beat of drums That fill the oceans waves. I am the never ending flow of Love that’s always open to those who need it most. I scream life and store a soul for safekeeping. I’m the place where it all happens, but the one who needs the most protection. If broken...
