    I think bar stools are uncomfortable for a reason. You sit and have a few drinks, maybe strike up a conversation, but it does not encourage an extended stay. At the end of the night you walk back home, and wake up with a stiff back and chapped lips, and you have no interest in going back f...

    I can’t stand the way you look at me, like I shine brighter than the stars in the sky, or the way you always hold too tight, like you can feel me slipping away from you. Love shouldn’t be complacent, but that’s the feeling I get every time we kiss or our fingers entwine. Still I paint o...

    Sometimes I love you, As deep as the ocean And as wide as the sky, And sometimes I don’t. And sometimes I hate you, With all the fires of hell and all the blood in my veins, And sometimes I don’t. And when I love you I want to take you up in my arms And hold tight until You love me to...

    The clock ticks time away and all I can do is watch it eating away my future; Darling, there's nothing we can do. So I come home and read through your letters, because the past is my only tangible time. Dwelling on you has no future, so I let the clock tick on....

    As I walk into the woods, your voice comes to me; each step I take resonates with the sound of your laughter. If these trees could talk, they would speak of our love, and how it ran, unbridled and free, down this timeworn path. Our words have been kept secret, tucked into the crook of ...

    I come back to this spot, at the end of the summer, right as the maples decide it is time for a change of color. And as I sit here without you, I feel the sanctity, the secrecy that was once here slip slowly from my mind, leaving just a ragged park bench off the side of an old dirt road...

    I am a small path in the woods, Stretching infinitely in both directions, Forever in the future and the past. I am a tower, Reaching towards the sun. I am a mighty oak, Remaining tall and strong. I have firm roots, But lofty branches. I am a river, Crashing and surging, Constantly moving,...

    I am a verb, Constantly in motion, In body or mind, I am always moving, moving, moving. Thinking, creating, wandering and wondering, Dreaming and doing, All in one breath. I am never in one place, Even as I sit completely still. All is a constant progression, For I am constantly learning a...

    Take me away, away, away Take me out this place, I don’t want to stay. Take me to the mountains, Take me to the bay, Take me anywhere but here, Because I don’t want to stay. Here memories follow too close, And the skies are too blue, So take me somewhere good, Because I want to start ...

    Here is what I remember. I remember riding in the car in the middle of summer, the wind fierce and hot as it whipped in through the open windows, singing at the top of our lungs. I remember you trying to hit the high notes in our favorite song and making me laugh. I remember when you were teaching...

    Ten years ago I was only ten, And if you think ten years changes you From a child to an adult, Then you haven’t lived long enough. Five years ago I was only fifteen, Confused and trying to find my way, And if you think five years is long enough To figure everything out, Then you certainly ...

    One day I decided just to sit, And watch the waves on the ocean. They were small, gentle waves that swept onto the shore at their leisure, Pulling away with the same finesse. The setting sun glistened off the water, Creating a mirror that spanned to the far corners of the earth, Reflecting t...

    The children ran yelling, As the bell struck three, There was no telling, What the new torture would be. They all gathered ‘round him, As I watched from afar. They began to taunt and tease him, I knew I had to do something before it went too far. I approached slow and steady, Shaking ...

    She says she remembers her childhood, And all of the wonderful things, She enjoyed but never understood. She tells these stories with a far off gaze, Her eyes unfocused and glazed. Now her days are filled with work. She says I shouldn’t wish life away, as she gives me a tired look and a...

    Miles and miles of outstretched roads, cars passing left and right like busy bees, mountains and forests and cliffs and rivers all blurring together behind the glass. Pines turning to maples, maples to oaks and oaks to palm trees, their massive leaves swaying in the breeze. Papers rustling an...

    As soon as I stepped off the plane, the mountains were there to greet me. Their vast, lofty peaks stretched toward the sky, their snowy caps mingling with the clouds above. As I exited the terminal, I stopped to take a deep breath, drawing the clean, sweet air into my lungs. I dropped my luggage int...

    She went to airports to watch people. Businessmen at work, lover’s reuniting, soldiers coming home. It was all fascinating to her. When she stepped into the terminal today, however, it was with a purpose. Her heels click-clacked on the cold linoleum floor as she approached the counter and purchase...

    She cringed as her bare feet hit the scorching pavement, but she kept walking. She needed a moment to clear her head, to truly understand what she had just discovered. For the first time in her life, Avery didn’t have a plan of action. She had never seen this coming, but yet somewhere in the back ...

    Someone tell me it's all going right, his smile haunts me through the night, I toss and turn, can't help myself, he's after me and I'm losing my might. It's what you've wanted all along, even though you're the one who's wrong, I've suffered all the...

    catch me dear I'm falling, but your arms would be soft landing, your strong, warm hands unfailing, to cradle me back to sleep. and in my dreams you'll hold me, your whipers will float and carry, your lips so soft caress me, your heart where I call home. And as I wake I find...

    A life without indecision, is an inconceivable bliss, take a shot, never miss. shoot for the stars, knowing you'll land on the sun, dodge every silver bullet, from every waiting gun. close your eyes, and take your pick, the world in your command, answers always coming quick. You�...

    pulse beating words you cannot speak, eyes making promises you'll never keep, won't take a look before you leap, and suddenly you're falling; crashing, burning into bright blue eyes, shooting stars and falling skies, don't even notice, not taken by surprise, when you see h...

    I’m alive, and I’m a liar, every word’s been killing me, my heart is burning with desire. I roam but do not see, I live but do not feel, my smile’s torn and hollow, nothing here seems real. Alive but barely living, is not the right state of mind, I’m just merely buying time, whe...
