    You flew like a bird through my consciousness, The wings like silk But beating nonetheless I let you take flight within my darkness Landing to perch on my sternum Dripping obscenities down my spine. You picked me apart with your sharp beak Swallowing pieces of me whole And regurgitating ...

    There's wine in my eyes And it's kept you drunk Because for every time you've questioned Why you're here I poured you a drink. And I'm not entirely sober Because I'm intoxicated by your lips They taste like the champagne I snuck the New Year's Eve That I...

    I was born into the cold lungs of February With a gaping mouth screaming protestations That fell like music on my mother's ears. I was cradled in arms that didn't yet know me That would never know me That would never care to, And it strikes me as inimical That such an intimate act ...

    I weave in and out Of desperation Of hope Of cleverly designed facades I keep my head down Trying to block out Snippets of mindless conversation Trying to block out The fact that I don't belong The fact that no one belongs I console myself with the fact That at least I know up from d...

    Under diluted city stars Miles apart I feel you here Curled against my spine Perfect quotations You seep into my clever skin And expand from the inside And I am effervesce We speak volumes Without needing words You flow into my heart And out With the efficiency of my own blood Perhaps ...

    You were black and blue Glasses, a smart a** I was timid and strange Green and black Posing as a bad-a**. I dared to reach out Lay a small white hand Over your heart Hammering to the rhythm Of wild fans. Do you remember? You covered my hand with yours And I dared to believe That we wer...

    The problem isn't us The problem is what we're told, What we're shown. Because in the movies, It's a look up, down, up again And then a kiss With fingers in hair Or on trembling jawlines. But you must not know that Because you've got the fingers in my hair But you're far too rough. And ...

    We were the lucky ones. Smoothing out tired eyes, Glimpsing starlight through broken blinds Waiting for the next minuscule earthquake And on its back, pointless dreams Just enough to shake us From any meaningful dreams Just enough to give us a taste of love. We were the songs at 3 a.m. Fa...

    There’s a man sitting on a park bench reading a newspaper. The headline states “11th Anniversary of the 9/11 Horror”. He sits quietly, unmoving. A passerby might not notice he was there, nothing particularly stands out about him. He seems to be around 40 or 50 of age. He wears a suit and next...

    "Don't go past the neighbor's driveway. The Indians will get you." And I don't want to be boiled into soup, So I mind and stay clear. And later in school I learn That the Indians settled this land And didn't eat people soup. "Step on a crack. Break your m...

    Sharing a pillow forehead to forehead, Hands quietly TAP TAP TAPPING A Morse code message for “I love you” On to cold hands And warm hearts With lightening flashing through the windshield. And tonight, our dreams will be shared, Walking from my mind to you...

    A passionate red paints a new beginning, A lighter red paints the love that they share, A faded red paints the love that is thinning, A lonely white paints the life that they’ll bear. A forlorn grey paints their children’s forever, A menacing black paints the lie that they live, An empty...

    Skin and bones. Reckless. Young and naive. Always degraded for what she believes. Sick of a world with no imagination or pictures, She followes a rabbit with pink eyes and long whiskers. Down a hole, headfirst, she dives into a dream. A marvelous taste of a macabre requiem. Past rocking ch...

    A man stands at the back of a church. Images flash through his mind. He remembers middle school, When he saw her for the first time. She was blonde and beautiful, Heartbreakingly beautiful. Sorrow danced in her blue eyes. They became best friends, And later they became lovers. Talking lat...

    The transparent skin that was once as charming As the translucent glow of sharp shards of glass, so disarming. Bold lies told to the faces of everyone who asked, Those burlesque smiles so carefully masked, But the truth of the sorrow would leave all aghast Because the bloody stains of these ha...

    Far out in the ocean, where the water is as blue as the prettiest cornflower, and as deep as the deepest deep, there stood a kingdom. This kingdom belonged to the great King Poiseidon and his six daughters. The princesses Ondine, Yara, Lana, Niobe, Tallulah, and the youngest and by far the most beau...
