    You stood tall as I collapsed into the breeze. It was an effortless transition: from lost to carried. You were always someplace beyond the air. You’d transcended the human need of oxygen. The oxygen that danced and spun all around everywhere. The movement would settle. Yes, eventually it w...

    He says he loves. Daisies bloom and skies turn purple! He doesn't look like he loves. But, he does. He says he does. Is purple pink? Is purple blue? My eyes shine. I know it all! He loves! He's said he does. Water bubbles, paint smears. Daisies are there. They're everywhe...

    You never offered to wait around. And catch me as I collapse into the wind. Though that's what I've gone and done now. The wind is beautifully graceful.   Though I desperately yearn for a more substantial  Being, such as you. Such as you. You wander about. It's cliched. It&#...

    The color of the grass that surrounds the flowers. is greenest now in the midst of July.  It's eaten by the least hungry of cows.   For it is the blue water who convinces the most troubled to jump. There are only bits of dead petals remaining  Amidst the cattle snack. The prim hues...

    There is a certain distance That must be kept, Between my palm and yours. Between my glance and yours. It's crucial to the survival of us, we. And the labels You and I have so cleverly avoided making. And it's crucial to the conversations. We've never had. We may never have. ...

    The public dangles allegations before you. They say I love you. They say I love you. They say I love you. You laugh along. Saying if I did, you don't. If I do, you don't. White sky. Black waters. Grey land. They say I love you. They say I love you. They say I love you. I play you...

    And as cliched as I wish it weren't (it Is) and as much as I wish I didn't have to  (accept) defeat, I do. Because it's true. I lost to you. Maybe I'll pretend, like I didn't get to, Before. Maybe you'll glue my heart back together again. But you aren't the...

    You snuck into my chambers softly. And as I dreamt of lands oceans away. You advanced halfheartedly  And I grew aware of your dominant presence. You contemplated leaving then. And I jumped awake, scaring you away. Your love potions glass bottle Cracked in to shatters at the start. T...

    The mystical dove flew home for dusk and dinner and night. She went away to the place where she resided, all alone. Nobody ever knew where the dove rested her pretty head. The dove hadn't been labeled the ugliest of the ducks daughters. She'd been the most beautiful creature since an...

    The rain danced atop the boldest pavements  Refusing to come down completely. Resisting the gravity down on the ground. Never staying down forever. Bored of straight Bored of flat. Bored of no curves. Bored of nothing at all. The droplets feared becoming a pool of other drops. Afraid to joi...

    You may not be the shiniest star. But I look for you first, in the nighttime.   You may not sit on the highest branch. But I will climb the tallest tree, for you. You aren't a comic in any sense. But I laugh at any joke, you tell me. You weren't made solely for me to love.  ...

    I think - of you. I pick daisies - and weave daisie chains too. You are much better Than, Everybody, Else, In your own mind. And maybe mine too. But, I'm giving it all away Way too soon. Much Like I promised the daisies, I wouldn't. Daisie...

    I look through the nearest window. To spot the blackest bird around. And he sits atop the tallest tree. He wavers, quite frantically. And he is unsure of whether to fly or not. He will prepare his wings for flapping. And suddenly they are stationary once more. The world goes blank ...

    I cringe at the inevitable fact That is clearly printed on the labels. On the labels of the world and of the afterlives. I've probably committed such cruel acts. But my involvement doesn't make sinning alright. Those who call the devil a friend May be my loose acquaintances. Bu...

    A solemn tyke approaches His mothers vindictive glares. He must confess his sins to her. He must tell the tale of crashing china. Sounds spewed timidly from his pure mouth. He had no preconceived notions of fear. Though, he knew then, how it felt. As he told his mother words so pure De...

    All we see are falling ceilings. Our only safe haven, our only home. Falling. Sprawling. Helplessly, to the dirt. And all we knew then was the sky and air. The house lived on as broken structure. Über beautiful, yet utterly unsubstantial. Debris and finished memories perfumed the air...

    The knowledge, of a world on the outskirts of us and our dalliance. A dance we swung along with, unsure of where to place our toes. Flying, above the world with the misconception that we, are better. Roses are red. Unless they are white. Unless, they are yellow. Clouds with puffy outsides, you c...

    Lovely, roses corrupt my soul. Tiara-topped witches dance over, my heart. You and your pure words, I cannot understand them. Tearing, apart pages I've left unread. Tearing, apart sentences I haven't said. Judging, my imaginary words. Lovely, stories corrupt my soul. Weaving worlds ...

    A notebook full of pink scrawl. Written by a girl you saw on a train. The girl, you saw. The girl, you admired. The girl, you loved. The girl, you prayed shared your overdeveloped feelings. You saw, from afar. You admired, from afar. You loved, from afar. You prayed for far too long, from afar....

    On our own, we can paint glittery words Of imagination across the pure, blue sky. We can sail forever in a balloon of hot air. But, our love is rakishly jauntier than glitter. Our passion is hotter than Alabama air. Remember, form over function. Are we made to last? Or simply melt away like th...

    Fairy wings hang daintily from her back They stay still for a very long time. Preparing to carry her far, far away. To a place that looks nothing like here. To a place where her thoughts are powerful. And her eyes can capture any mans heart. She’ll fly away to a castle and coach. Just like ...

    Climbing down from your latest venture. Your clumsy feet giving the pavement a lecture. I watched your newly planned ambitions unfold. It’s all thrown back in your face. It’s all fools gold. Sometimes, it rains a lot. Other days, weathermen smile. Your eyes gleam bright. Your secrets...

    The glistening seas and height less mountain tops, Are strictly awe defying when seen from way up here. Though the daunting waves and treacherous cliffs, Must be terribly frightening when seen by those, down there. No way to climb to safety. Impossible to sail away. All is lost or hiding,...
