    The curved hem of our planet, Resting regally in a black void- This view never gets old I think to myself As I stare out my little triangular window Far, far below swirling clouds glide heavily Over the ground, masking glass oceans- I look down upon Heaven An odd thought, really Anythin...

    My students look at me wide-eyed, expectantly- A new year. They sit in rows, incandescent minds Brimming with intensity, Passion, waiting for me to speak. I sigh. A new year of quiet, and reason, and #2 pencils, And test scores and greasy-haired cohorts who Teach to the test, teach to the te...

    For some questions, there are no answers. Everyone wants to know. Everyone wants a reason, an answer, closure. Afraid to ask, afraid to prod, Afraid to admit. To open a closed door Shed light on a situation Gone, forgotten Dead And maybe one day, we’ll know. Maybe one da...

    I look out- a vast expansion Skyline stitched in a sea of black One road to anywhere, moving on From light to light to light The faint rumble, brighter headlights Shifting shapes in a sea of black Take us by surprise, playing catch up One after the next after the next All clear, the worl...

    Night melodies of night Pumping through the air the air Sleepless toss and toss and turn Tired, let’s get out of here Some say, when the moon is out Insomniac, insomniac Clouds of thought for thought of thought Loudest music silent night Tired, tired, so tired Just can’t seem to shu...

    I have no voice, I cannot speak Look in my eyes, to know the truth I shout out loud, the silence is ringing Somewhere alone there is one voice still singing Uncover me, dust me off find the surface, Just dig and dig, till you strike gold Because underneath all the layers and lies, Is beauti...

    Pressure builds us up Pressure breaks us down Pressure coming down From all sides of me Now I’ve lost control Staring out behind Mirrored eyes, they reflect What you want to see Oh, why Tell me why I’ve done it now, I’ve done it now No way out, No one to hide behind Can...

    We wander the streets as the daylight dies. We travel the Earth and look to the skies. We are searching, and searching, and never know why. We don’t know reason, we let time fly. We ponder, and query, and tirelessly call. We mess up, we fail, we stumble, we fall. We only discover, we ...

    "I don’t want to be alone But now I feel like I don’t know you." Hayley Williams of Paramore floats out of the radio filling the air of the musty garage. The same garage we used to hang out in, all those summer nights. Just you, me, and the little quirky radio we brought back t...

    How often do I resort to falling. She was falling, again, again, again. Falling forever, waiting to hit the ground. Again, the ground never came, instead a sudden wakening and realization that it was all just a dream. When she went into work that morning, she was still in quite a cloudy state...

    “We were riding in the car.” Why is it so hard to remember the night? There was the party, and then we left to go home. “Me, and Caitlyn. Caitlyn was driving, and I had shotgun. And Lexi was in the back, in the middle. Caitlyn turned the bass all the way up, and we were dancing around li...

    In the dead of night By the lamp post light A storm brews out of sight The wind whips through my hair In the cold sharp air And I wonder if anyone’s there? The wind picks up fast From just a breeze past To howling forever to last The rain mocks my call And continues to fall And I won...

    How does the time pass Or even at all Year after each as The pages of life fall Is time just an illusion Or does it line up so Moments in time, parallels Link more than we know How different is this second Than the last How soon does the present Become the past I am young today Bu...

    I am just a little flower, lost in a meadow. I am just a tiny pebble, surrounded by the sea. I am just a spark of light, but I am burning. I am potential. Here I stand, at the threshold, full of life. I have power. I have spirit. I am like a ripple in the river. But do I know this? How do I ...

    Let down my hair Slip off my dress Step out of the frame of An unknown person, a weary day Sweaty and hot His hand on the small Of my back, dancing Revolving around and around and around Now. Wiping the makeup Off of my eyes, the makeup Running down my cheeks Smearing my lipstick, not...
