    The mirror Is inky black Clouds of dust Float around Like fumes From cigarets She reaches To touch it The image Dissipates Disappears And all is clear For a second And for Just a moment She can see That she is.. That she might be... beautiful. But, then Sh...

    Everything is a blur of black and white. The silence is deafening. Some are avoiding my gaze and some are shocked at what they see. I reach out to fix your tie. You look so handsome in your tux. So distinguished. I smile. I wonder how you would compliment me if you could see me. You would probably c...

    Her footsteps sound like rain. Just a soft pitter patter against a linoleum floor. I stop and listen ... waiting. She pauses before going past my room and I let out the air I've been holding in my chest. The sun hasn't risen yet. The walls look like the inside of a fish tank. They are blu...

    It was my sixteenth summer. My sixteenth year. I was lost and naive And I was only fear. Until I started to live To see life with these eyes. And all of it's brokenness All of it's lies. And then I understood. The meanings between the lines. The answers that were in front of my ...

    There's only one phrase That can sum up what I feel. Only three words that weigh Down my chest. A three-syllable phrase So small and heavy. Like your clothes After you stand outside in the rain. Like a heart. Small, but heavy with life. Like me. Finite, Yet full of infinite dreams. A...

    I'm floating. Like one of those little kids who press their frost-bitten noses against the cold, frosty glass windows of candy shops and toy stores. I'm watching from the outside, but I'm longing to be inside. And I'm running my finger tips across the words on the window. Glancin...

    I love the way you smile And light up my whole world. And how you make me laugh Like I’m a little girl. I love the look in your eyes When our hands barely touch. And I really love the fact That you laugh so much. I love how you listen Even when you don't care. And I love how w...

    Dark eyes contemplating me. A slight smile. Do you even know my name? Or what I have inside? Yet you still smile. You still make me laugh With your funny faces and blank stares Into the nothingness this place has. I depend on you now. You're my silent friend. It's because of you ...

    It's not an easy task , To write a sonnet . It's like wearing a mask And wearing a bonnet All at the same time. It's really not fun. All is not fine Until the sonnet is done So I will refuse to stop Until this sonnet is complete. I'm almost at the top. I've ov...

    Spring is a time To celebrate new life. A new beginning, An infants cry. The cool, gentle winds Begin fall low. And summer sets in With it's warm, sunny glow. You're in a place of changes, Of growing up. There are long nights. And things get tough. As summer passes, You can no...

    Sometimes I wish I was safe and sound From every piercing Sound. The words, They pierce And penetrate. They keep me on the ground. My blood then spills Along the hills Of my sanity. I'm running but I'm on my knees, Begging to be free. My wounds Refuse to heal Bec...

    My words run away from me. I can never catch up. It seems whenever I get close enough, I get stuck in a rut. The words run away from me. Only the ones that mean the most. There always on the move. They never stay at their post. Words that are supposed to save me. But, all they do is fai...

    A cork In a wine bottle. You can pour nothing out. An obstacle. A stop. Writers block. But, inside Are amazing things Color and flavor A feeling that gives you wings And once you pull off The writers block You have to keep going. Because, now You can't stop. Unless your li...

    You were broken and beaten by many a man, Torn and tortured by merciless hands. They spat in your face, Called you a disgrace. And you said nothing. They made you carry a cross By yourself. You feel three times Before they actually helped. They mocked your name, Made fun of your pain. ...

    My tears feed the fire. They feed the scorching flames. They fall for so many losses, For those without a name My tears ignite the the fire. They sharpen the blinding glow. They reveal things I never wanted to see, Things I never wanted to know. My tears feed the fire. Consuming who I a...

    I release the air from my chest, Like a bird out of it's cage. It reaches high. It goes past the clouds. Past the moon. Beyond the universe. Beyond me. I reach for it. I push for it. I strive for it. Then it comes back. It swirls around me. It wraps it's tune around me. I...

    Broken Heart. It hurts. Aches. When will it heal? How long will it take? It was caused by decisions I never wanted to make. And they were all for you. Recovering heart Still sore, But I'm okay. I'll be alright. I'll make it today. I no longer have anything else to ...

    It was a sunny day Or so it seemed. We stood on the pavement. Just you and me. We were laughing And smiling And all the while Grey clouds were Piling. Then a thought crossed out minds. But no words came. Not this time. "It's starting to pour. Should we go inside?&quo...

    If I wished on a star First,I'd ask how far you are. Then I'd wish for travel fare And find a way to make it there. Then I'd turn to thank That star For bringing me to where You are. Because, with you Is where I need to be. You are my dream, My fantasy. Then you�...

    If I wrote "I Love You." Across the sky, Would it be enough to make you cry? If I wrote it across the the sea Would it be enough For you to believe? If I wrote it in the sand Would you know or understand? But, you see, I've written it across my heart. Three simple w...
