    I. Twilight I braided my hair against the nape of my neck Trapping sunlight’s kiss. Purple twilight Bruises the sky before The night begins to rot. II. Night We are all shadows Flickering, wispy phantoms Corrupted by night. Black and white birds sing A gritty monotone of dust. ...

    sky full of teeth bone white and bleached leer in the darkness of shivering galaxies. too dark to survive too bright to hide gasping for air, spun by an uncaring sky. scuttling star shards send their regards unblinking and cold in a sky inky and charred. shut your eyes tight make...

    Up and down and up and down and up and down and up. I bounce my baby sister to sleep, keeping a steady beat on the scuffed green yoga ball. The muscles in my legs ache after a while, and my arms are tense from holding her tight against me. Thump and slap and thump and slap and thump and slap and ...

    In a city of concrete scars, You can never see the stars. We paint our face with the blood of the neon light midnight flood. Shallow midnight movies. The city’s almost moody. A hundred dirty secrets. twisted ankle high heel struts. Wipe your hands on your jeans, we’re splitting at the...

    I try to tell him The simple truth which is: Monsters hide where You don't expect to see them. In obvious places: The zipper of your coat, Inside your coffee, Peeking out of the clouds. But They hide everywhere. There is no escaping them Because there is no predicting When they will co...

    Up the midnight sky, stars wrestle the dark. Spanned out in glory they fill the sky with diamonds to be mined. Such beauty, no one sees. Up at midnight, I was a small shadow in a large one, though I could not tell if I was melting or resisting the dark. Pixels snapped and his...

    I came into the movie theater to see “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” like a Hobbit who is anticipating second breakfast. My first figurative breakfast had been baked in the oven of my love for J.R.R. Tolkein’s masterful prequel to the “Lord of the Rings” series and seasoned with my ...

    I was born to die. Like a spring flower I bloom than wither. But you will not die Batteries can be replaced And metal doesn’t bleed. Life used to mean love Represented by a heart But I was wrong. I found love with you In your dead glass eyes and Your cold metal touch. Our love will ...

    Sipping sunlight like champagne, a blistered stain around the lips of Night. Darkness spreads like a blight. The heavens are bleeding in pain, Night begins its reign, squeezing the sky tight. The daylight shatters leaving shards of brightness. Disjointedly, the stars are scattered. The wo...

    Rarely can it be said that the movie is better than the book, but the newly released “Catching Fire” is an exception. Fans of the book series “The Hunger Games” and the first movie of the same name will love this sequel which is packed with new characters and new dangers. But newcomers will...

    A shadow up at midnight, scrolling through endless the labyrinth of of burning pixeled pictures and meaningless drivel of the websites. Eyes glaze. Her heart pounds unsteadily as she bleeds from fictional wounds inflicted by overactive imagination and lack of sleep. She’s despera...

    I soar on dragon wings, Flying across the frozen sky. The birds flee from me The sun hides from me. Flying across the frozen sky, We paint the sky my dragon and I. The sun hides from me, a craven among clouds. We paint the sky my dragon and I, with roiling fire and the scratch of leath...

    You never believe in ghosts until you meet one. I don’t want to frighten you, but if you really want to know, I’ll tell you how it happened. There’s this spooky cemetery near where I used to live. I don’t really want to say exactly where it is, but I lived in a pretty rural area. Not much ha...

    A boy stood at the shore, a string bound about his fingers, waiting for the tug, the bite. It was a day to bite. The sun nibbled at the skin of the boy’s shoulders, leaving them raw The sun blazed and tore at the boy’s shaky shadow’s edges. The sea snarled and hissed, chewing at the ...
