    Blue, The blank beginning, To which the paint would splatter and catch. Cotton, Softness that would become tacky, With the joyful splotches, And dots of childhood mishaps. Hanging down to my knees, Covering the frame of a little girl, With her waist at table height, Gig...

    Flutterflies. Have you heard of them? Not butterflies, But flutterflies. They cocoon in your stomach, Knotted and tight, Until they burst forth, In fluttering flight. Rising up through your heart, And into your cheeks, Where their wings, Are colored and scarlet, Blushing streaks. Flut...

    There is no such thing as nothing. Not in the spaces where you think, Not in the time between each blink. Neither hidden in darkness, Nor exposed in bright light. For there is always something, Even the thought of the idea of nothing, Is something. Space exists, And time within that space. ...

    The old, lone, pine, Down by the willow pond, Moaned and ached, In the cold blown wind, During the winter months. Drawing its dark needles close, Like a shaggy green coat, As if to block out the loneliness. The young, blush pine, Down by the willow pond, Sighed mournfully sweet...

    Who reads the ending of a book before the beginning? If you raised your hand I will pretend I didn’t see and come back for you later. The point is, no one does. I can see you looking at me incredulously, and saying but then what’s the reason for this? You point blatantly to the heading of th...

    “Toss me the cherry lipstick tube,” Marisa called. Now this would usually be a very common sentence, if the tube wasn’t a stun dart gun that is. From somewhere across the room bustling with teen girls, a shiny brass lipstick tube sailed through the air, with a spin that would have made a p...

    Stomp through the corridors of your mind, March instep to the rhyme, Every idea kept in time, Like those Shakespearean poetic lines. Determination, A soldier, Perseverance, Its mission. Tracking all those scurrying thoughts, Trapping and lining them up, In their specific slots. Then y...

    Writer’s blocks, Huge stone slabs of doubt, Tricking you like a fox, Giving hesitation the time to sprout. Don’t flinch, From that slab, It want’s to see you wince, See you sucked dry and drab. No, Take the mallet, Of perseverance, And swing, Chip away at the obstacle, And fee...

    I had to scream. It scrabbled at my heart, clawing up my throat like an oily black rat squirming to get out. My insides burned with the scars of unvented emotions, etched upon my soul. The scream was a separate entity, trapped within me, and desperate to be free. I longed to shatter the silence ...

    People tell me, “You’re an amazing person,” not out of respect, but because they think I need the compliment, because I have cancer. They say, “You are so strong,” while they avert their gaze from my shriveled body, lying beneath the crisp, white hospital sheets. They say these things and ...

    We claim that this is the twenty-century, and that everything has been modernized, That people’s attitudes have changed, We claim that sexism has been eradicated, and discrimination abolished, This is the age of equality, And everyone is shown fairness. If we claim that life has been mode...

    Star shimmered winds, Constellations formed and destroyed, On a background of velvet blue. Russet orange waters, Swirling upon the whims, Of flitting fairies. Black roses and red leaves, Weeping tears, Of glittering diamond dew drops. The roar of birds, The hum of bees, Shattering t...

    My body is a squiggle, I have 46 eyes, I talk when I giggle, And my hands look like pies. My feet are on backward, I have six noodle like arms, I twist and bend like rubber, But my smile always charms. I live in a world of upside down, With fish in the sky, And birds in the sea, Where...

    Vampires have been completely overdone. They are in books, movies, poems, and just about any other types of entertainment you can think of. I swear, it seems like authors throw vampires into the thread of a story, especially romances I’ve noticed, simply to get the book sold. Most vampire related ...

    Spoken words, Whispered to the soul, Rustled pages, Worn with age, Fingers flitting, Over black typed words, Scripted onto the page, Perfect letter, After perfect letter, Of poetry, Each stanza, Entwined into my heart, Like a love note, Just for me, Comforting or disturbing, Silly or ...

    We have a voice. A voice to be heard, A voice to be listened to, A voice to be reckoned with. We have a voice. So don’t tell us to wait for your approval. Don’t tell us to let the “adults handle it”. Don’t put us down. And don’t try to silence us, Because we will be heard. ...

    Twice entwined, Eyes of black, And hearts that shine. Weak they are apart, Combined they have the strength, To withstand the greatest attempts to thwart. A bond unbreakable, Not of siblings, But of distant blood unshakeable. Thrice they shall be tested, Once by man with heart of bea...
