    I can't feed the world. I can't find the cure for cancer, For broken bones, For heartbreak. I can brainstorm what might happen if cures were found.   I can't give a hug to everybody. I can't hold hands with weeping parents, With boys who are "too sensitive", With girls walking h...

    If you had a working heart, Its wage would be from me. I'd give you all I have If it would make you healthy.   If you had a working heart, Maybe mine would listen, too. It would stop the mess from entering When the barriers withdrew.   But you don't have a working heart; In...

    As the teacher finds the next sheet of paper to hand out you sit quietly leaning forward as if you were listening when in reality the sketches you're creating are as visible as the cuts on your arm, because you've taken off your sweatshirt. I heard your friends ask you "Where did those co...

    Magnificent collections of love, Tufts of absolute color among The blue of the sky, Destroyed by the symbol of a dove, Their lives debated over if They were grown enough to buy....

    There's only a sliver of light From the crack of the door. The closet is cramped with coats, Dresses, shirts, pants and more.   There's only a sliver of light But it's enough to show A girl who rests in the dark, No other place to go.   There's only a sliver of light But it...

    When there is no stars, no sun, Only bad deeds will be done, Good intentions will be forgotten, Food and people will turn rotten, Miles and miles of it we can see, Darkness is just laid out for me. No light to spark our day, Bites and blood will not delay, But rush out at full speed, Rea...

    You're just coming home, carrying twenty fresh dollars in your back pocket as a result of a day spent mowing a lawn. You don't like your neighbors, but you're fourteen-- not old enough to work a real job yet, but old enough to need money for movies and candy and books. You've a...

    She lays in the sand Her face underground. Her brother's a band Yet he makes not one sound. He remembers she said "Be quiet and still." He won't be punished instead, So oh yes, he will. Across from the two Lie a couple in wait, For a baby named Lou With a diagnosis...

    He went on a white horse She stayed on her course He said he loved her She said no thank you sir Now he was walking toward The open dynamite cord And she was just a ray Just on her way And there's an explosion A thousand lights falling down His implosion He needs to see her in h...

    I guess that I’m reserved For a date not far away, Bound to a condition That expires in May. I’m put in the hands Of a monster, waiting patiently To destroy my soul In May, inevitably. I will never rise to the sunrise Outside my wooden door See the world outside overheat, Hearing ...

    I walked into my first day of kindergarten with a fresh-pressed maroon uniform and a small pink backpack with only a composition notebook inside. The teacher greeted me and showed me where my cubby was, tucked behind everyone else's, as if I was already set aside to be 'that weird kid...

    Dear Tumblr, We've been through this before. I'm sorry, but my mind is not going to change. I can't deal with you all day anymore, I have a life to go back to. I'll miss you. I couldn't have asked for a better friend, yet something is telling me I need to take a break fro...

    The bright yellow flashes of light from fireflies kept me awake when I was younger, and still entrance me today. The small critters are only here for a few months, but that just makes me more fascinated with them. One year, I had nineteen of them on me at once. Another year, I managed to keep ...

    If you are a visitor, please come stay At Melville's Haunted House that's really real The termites around here bring wood decay, The pigs outside now eat their final meal. Witches will look over you, their laughs cruel As the ghosts and the ghouls pass on through you The steel frames...

    The macaroni burns on waves of heat, Its yellow color fading into brown. And at the schoolhouse holds a mom to beat, And I refuse to go down to the ground. The last year's grief has brought this year's sadness The other mother's dish far more supreme. The walls of hatred becomin...

    "Hi, my name is Aubrey Landhigh," I stammer. "My sister was shot and killed when I was twelve. It's been five years since I've seen her." "Hi, Aubrey," they all chant back, eyes looking everywhere but at me. Doctor Haven coughs, and then looks at me ex...
