    My life's a paper bag full of groceries that the sharp edges of a cartoon of milk cut through and let tomatoes, eggs, love and sex spill onto the street like the glass pellets we used to play with when we were kids I always wanted my smile to stretch as wide as a Robin Hood bow, (am...

    I would read and sometimes forget to eat My mother was always worried. She believed some day I would forget to breathe and turn into scattered letters and commas among the pages of a book She feared she would never be able to put me back together. I bite my knuckles, wanting to see ...

    you named me cynical because I knew not how to speak jasmine words I uttered roses that cut my bottom lip spilling blood down my chin, as they rushed past my tongue, teeth, mouth you asked if I read romance, and upon my refusal you labelled me cold-hearted, distant, cold but I am not ...

    I want to trace the blood flowing underneath your skin with my fingertips, moan my feelings in your hair, pick dead eyelashes from your cheeks and make wishes (sometimes, I'd even pluck some from your eyes, on purpose) I want to taste your breaths and recite poetry to you and the wall...

    I lived in your eyes and the edges of your lips, slept at your side chasing dreams I breathed on your breaths, it rained and I too did when you were sad at night, sleep stretched itself upon my eyelids like a spider's web, while you mouthed sentences that had a softer touch than...

    My laptop has become an embodiment of who you are, it has replaced my need of air and food with the need of recognition and love of my heart We sit until strings with weights are tied unwittingly (and against our will) to our eyes, and our pillows start to sweetly sing the way sirens d...

    You promised me falling stars through the perfect night sky sat beside my bed, re-telling stories for the thousandth time and smiled with never aging eyes I read forever on the lines of your face and the blue rivers flowing on your hands, but your lips were always dancing partners to ...

    Like butterfly wings your eyelashes fluttered as gravity pulled me down to kiss you, your hands felt like cotton, so I held them tighter, afraid you would slip away in between my fingers I smiled until my eyes hid behind my cheeks, not like frightened children, but like two stars i...

    the rain kissed my eyelids, and stumbled down across my cheeks, only to be caught by the softness of your lips I trembled lightly as the sun's feet walked upon my skin, and your fingertips slid elegantly down my chin I traced your scars with a smile, counted the rare times yo...

    the edges of your lips were always aimed towards the sky, your eyes danced at the words coming from your mouth, and there never was a cloud able to put a shadow over that light drawn in black, I was in the picture, too, always there to catch you before your tongue tasted dirt But my e...

    ?The clouds stayed still, unmoving,? watching as he moved his lips,? and tears rolled down their cheeks ?with the combined sounds of? quickened heart beats and drowning eyes?? The sun hid behind? the clouds' softness, scared of the silence,? while the wind still ran, careful not to m...

    Shush, can you hear the silence? Can you hear its cries from thousands of immemorial times? I am closer to the skies now than fifteen years ago when I was born, I can nearly reach them on my toes and arms raised high, but “nearly” was never good enough my neck has started hurt...

    The night is cold and foggy, the wind is playing a beautiful symphony, Innocent snowflakes dance in circles, They all look like players from a circus. Coldness wraps its arms around me, Like a lover, afraid of letting me be. I struggle against it, no longer free, Not a love game, but a painfu...

    Ringing bells of light into the distant horizon I hear, a forgotten sound of joy, that quickly disappears Thunder and lightning come crashing into gray (leaving an opportunity for my eyes to gaze upon your changing features) Rain like cold daggers pierces through me, Tears (and blood)...

    Have you heard the song the wind plays as it gently shakes its lovers’ leaves? have you heard how bees would hum (or moan) as from flower to flower they land on? have you heard the melody ocean waves would cause as (with open arms) run to caress their lovers – stones? I have no...
