    Every day, you are coming into contact with countless objects. At this moment, I can name a hundred items around me—the chair I am sitting on, the keyboard my fingers rest on, the computer screen in front of me, the clothing on my body, the cluttered papers on this desk— the list could go on for...

    I stand in the doorway Of her room It is small and bare A wire frame bed Sits lonely in the corner She spends so few nights here Anymore The window overlooks a bleak parking lot And the music pounds As loud as the radio goes To drown out the world Her back is turned She doesn’t see me...

    The foundation goes on heavy today. I’m lonely, painfully lonely, and somehow feeling beautiful helps fill that void. So I cake on the makeup. Cover up a pimple on my forehead, a mole on my cheek. Smooth over a faded scar on my chin that probably no one can see but me, with my face pressed c...

    Your eyes There’s nothing like them They have seen everything, those eyes Muddy waters swirling beneath the surface I don’t know how deep When they connect with mine My heart stops for a moment And I think I will sink Down, down, down Into your eyes You don’t pull your head into ...

    I remember my way through the twisting streets, The winding paths, and the rolling roads But I can't remember you I remember the way the stars sparkled And the moon gleamed and the rain poured But I just can't remember you I remember the croaking frogs and the mossy turtles, The coo...

    In a dark deep night There is a massive mountain And in the dark tall mountain There is a dark dark cave But deep deep in the cave There is a glowing light And in the bright bright light There is a sunny day And on the sunny day There is a grassy hill And on the grassy hill There is a flo...

    Everything is chaos. There are exactly 43 of us, crammed into this tiny wing offstage. The noise is crashing around me. My mind is numb as the girl paints rouge on my cheeks and touches up my eyeliner. I straighten my silky blue dress and tap my toes. My mind is everywhere and nowhere. Numb. Repetit...

    Long ago, there lived a very wealthy merchant. He had a daughter named Zahirah, who excelled at everything she did. She was very smart, and beautiful, she could win any race. But she was very, very vain. And the thing she prided herself most in was her lovely voice. The merchant and his daughter ...

    Single Flame Flickering Glimmering Shimmering The world is darkness But as long as I can see your glow Piercing through the night There is still hope There is still love There is still light The fog of lies and pain blurs together But I train my eyes on you And I know I know deep inside...

    Beauty. What comes to mind when you hear that word? Is it the faces of supermodels or actors? Extraordinary paintings, or lovely pieces of music? Roaring waterfalls or exquisite butterflies and birds? Or is it beauty products, lipstick and mascara and hairspray? Everyone has their own idea of what b...

    Passion is a deep, rich violent with magenta hints It sounds like birds singing sweetly to the sky It tastes like warm, steamy jungle air in the early evening, like mangoes and papayas It smells like lush orchids dripping into your hands It looks like a single star in the inky velvet night It m...

    Peace is golden-white, the color of the sun It sounds like music playing softly and gently It tastes like clear blue water, pure and sweet on your dry tongue It smells like baking bread, simple and sincere It looks like a newborn baby held close in your arms It makes you feel like closing your ...

    I am from my mother’s incense, wafting through the house From Paul Simon’s voice pouring out of my father’s record player and my long white skirt twirling as I dance to the tune I am from the small apartment with the wide, wide, windows, looking out at the beautiful churches and skyscrapers ...

    Graceful lines, black branches bowing gently I lift my cupped hands to catch the silky pink blossoms as they drift on the breeze Silent in the darkness, delicate leaves fluttering slightly Reminding me of my Nana- withered skin, soft heart...
