    An octave higher his voice fell on pin-pricked ears, and when he laughed, he was the only one, and the world did not laugh too. When he smiled, it was like a bent coat hanger dangling beneath his nose, as if eventually the wind would knock it astray and he would be mouthless, fumbling fo...

    This is how it is: I loved you a little then, but not anymore. Perhaps once, I fell into old habits of love – accidents happen. I'm not hiding now because trying to be yours was too difficult. There are no fancy words to describe us because we were simply there. We were not spe...

    You say you love the gays, or at least the guys, with their incredible fashion sense and biting wit. You say you're all for gay rights and marriage and whatnot, but I see in your eyes that you only parrot your favorite sitcom. Well, not everyone is like Kurt. Not so flamboyant and ou...

    Two stars. Out of five. By today's standards, that is a forty percent. F. As in failure. It screamed "Don't even bother getting out of bed in the morning, you bum. You might as well put the paper bag over your head now, and save us all the trouble." I blinked at the computer s...

    There are so many questions I would ask you, if only we’d had more time and if only you hadn’t given up on me. Maybe if I’d had my epiphany just a few days sooner or maybe if I’d been more intriguing, your eyes would still light up for me like they used to. Maybe if you had spoken hones...

    It is the season I won’t forget When I think of fall and those nights And remember September. I watched her crash again and again, Relived her death a million times, And still her grave holds no reality, Just a name A person without a place. But she had a life And will always remain livin...

    If and only if, you write me a song today, i'll give you a kiss on your freckled cheek. And together we'll sing, off-key and carefree, of lost loves and cranky old men, of stale coffee and stolen glances, until the sun slips down and melts into shadows. In the half light, you�...

    It is an odd sort of thing, to feel breath on your wings, To soar to places, which others dare not know. You are different they say, a creature of flight And the curiosity of every child down below. How they watch, how they wonder, So intensely does it linger, The rapt attention guaranteed ...

    His heart was not broken, But shattered. From the explosion Of truth upon the weak, Those forced to hold heads high In a battle never finished. He died as sleep overtook him, With one arm curled And lips parted softly, Longing for a kiss That would come too late— Only as the war-torn sk...

    I miss back when I could tell you anything, and you would mumble back, that scrap of pencil between your lips. Your brows would furrow in concentration, lines forming along your forehead, your lips, around your jaw. I would watch you work, stare as you bent carefully over the pad and gentl...

    You cover the moon, with the tip of your finger, so that the whole world is swallowed in dark. I cling to your arm, shivering in this new cold world. And you laugh, beautiful and deep, but somewhat maniacal, as if your secret, evil dream has always been to kill the light. I feel your fing...

    I can't stand it out here. I want to go Outside. I want to go where the air is clean and where my heart can breathe. I want to follow his skinny frame, down our rabbit hole and back again. Back to neverland and wonderland and the...

    We spent our tenth year redrawing each other’s faces. I gave you the battle scar that you always wanted, and you graced me with a sophisticated smirk. And while you looked rugged and adventurous (quite like a pirate in my eyes), I was the picture of culture and elegance. When Novembe...

    There’s a heartbeat in the city, Like the sound of your name, And it floats on the wind. Past the bed sheets and underwear Flapping in the breeze, Past streets that we danced in and shouted in, Spinning beneath our celestial canvas of topaz stars. That beat, how it calls me—...
