    Old man with a cane sugar addiction swats the maggot squirming through the sliver of rotting teeth. Swallows behind that bulging neck spits. Decaying carcass wriggles to freedom or not. Sluggish baby brain of yours. You have been living dead....

    It floods my brain with memories. He couldn’t sit, for fear his back pocket might ruin. He couldn’t forget, or we’d all be stuck. Once completely filled to its breaking point, it is now nearly empty and lies in the lock box I was given, by him of course. The fake brown leather material use...

    Present to me the flowing leisure bound to my wish. We roar together, under the sour, Above the shimmer of moons. We fight the sunshine- not festive, What worth? To curse. Flee; you're powerless. Flee; your legs- powerless. Stairs stamp. It echoes around us. You seek my light? Not equ...

    Bumbling thoughts and clumsy steps, it seems it’s been a year I’ve slept. A single smile from you awakes, my heart, my soul, my little strength. You grasp my hand, my heart gives in. One sweet kiss, a thoughtless bliss. It’s true, my wall is wearing thin. It’s you I can’t shake from m...

    The hues in the water reflect the degrees of my happiness. Its increasing lately, you know. I should climb the tree, wrap myself around. Hide in the bushes—so beautiful—someone is sure to search. It’s incredible, young artist, that you could capture the colors of my soul, the safe place im...

    Take from me my passion. Take from me my joy. Bundle up your wit; gather all your strength. Tell me what I cannot do; tell me what I’m worth. It’s your time to decide just what I’m capable of. Stop. Illuminate; evaluate. I’m taking back my passion, my joy. My strength exceeds your who...

    To the taste of salt that taunts my tongue, you sizzle in my memory. My wounds open for all to see, while I’m drowning in these flashbacks. To what do I owe this demise? To whom? I watched you thrash and squirm. I saw your hand slip from my weak grip. I saw your shallow casing sink down to th...

    Say to them, look! Say back down, hold your own. Straighten up, dear arsonist; I have yet to break our stare. Eyes focused, cold, blank. Lure me in with those charcoal eyes. Twist my heart with that flawless smile of yours. I feel your thoughts, You read my mind. So perfect, so charming, fu...

    Warnings were never really my style. I’m a crooked wing, not good for much. I’m fickle as can be; I can’t bear to drag you down. In the morning, I’ll be gone. A speck of dust on your camera lense. A stiff breeze by the lake in your backyard. Shed no tears for me please, for I’ll be b...

    He spoke with pain; the words flew out of his mouth like the wind atop a hill. He never had a problem with buoyancy; he was resilient til’ his last breath. He held passion for a different kind, in a different way. At first, he was grounded, then took flight like an impetuous gull. His absence ...

    Water me. Quench my thirst. Let my roots prosper. Cleanse my bark; Filter my breath for the world. Winter chills my bones, seeds. Gather my lovely leaves; Don’t let them wither in a pile. Press them in a book of some sorts; Keep them smiling for at least a little while more. Stop scorchi...

    Our lust will turn to smoke, engulfing buildings galore. Our greed will force all life from the sky, gobble up the clouds. Our hateful nature will crack the streets, creating a permanent grave for our souls. Our sins will shimmy up the trees, destroying our oxygen from the inside. Our gluttonous...

    Obedience is sprouting from the soil of your mind. Its roots run deep; embodying the will of society. They embellish your thirst with submissiveness; they douse you twice a day. Buds of weakness spring upon your spirit, damaging your growth. Leaves of envy shape every glimpse of hope; they snip ...

    Let’s send a plea to the shadows cast upon our walls. There’s a rosy cage above our bed, waiting for our slumber. Our cheeks are swollen, ripe with crime of passion. Mums the word, a quiet game of secrets, hush. The walls drip down, leaking punishment, drip lush. Spill your thoughts, partne...

    Drowning in teal petals. A brush of the ocean, a wave or two. A splash of mustard, smeared in disarray. A single line, dark with envy. Smear your colors over me; muted I shall be. Melted I shall stay. Melted like a piece of ice fixed from filthy puddle water. Pungent liquid; I shall become. ...

    My memories are far from fresh; time begins to take its toll. Your laughter, once vibrant, is beginning to fade. Hold on a little longer, Dad. Mind, please don’t get lost. Stay with me; give me strength. Your smell will begin to fade over time. Your hugs will no longer linger on my skin You...

    Approach me open handed; Approach me with a smile. Speak nothing of this weakness, Only fondness for a while. Stand up and dive into me; Stand up and take a bite. Hold your ground, young honeybee, I am that thing called life....

    A thousand thoughts run through my head. Pain perhaps, perhaps not dead. What happens when the sound of your voice drifts away, a cherished balloon in the wind? What happens when I cannot remember? What What What What happens when?...

    Determined and unruly, I race for the beaten rubber tire. My turn is up next. A roller coaster with a single car, just for me. Eyes forced shut from the rushing wind, my stomach rises up and down into nausea. Suddenly it stops and dizzily I stand up. My eyes fall into focus and I hop right b...

    Small etched flower, delicate and smooth, sing to me your story. Tell me of your strife; let me heal your wounds. Show me how you live; I will take your place. Oddly shaped with no edges, you stay seated, silent. No color, muted, you fade into the background. You shimmy beneath the sand, hiding...

    If you’re here to solve the mystery, Goodbye, go home, there is nothing left here. It’s a funny story you know, when everyone Goes mad from a literate spider, like me. Frozen in time, a solid tear, the Lackluster web tells the story you seek....

    Alive, are you? Courtesy: ever heard of it? Solid screeching words turn into weapons at your lips’ release. Silence those faults, young ignorance. Brighten those eyes; you’re much too dull for your own good. Your pride is quite sickening; your beliefs must make you holy. God, are you? Unj...
