    I felt it the moment you took my hand, felt the crushing weight of what the universe did to itself to put us together. I felt continents shifting in my lungs, a meteorite lodged in my throat. I felt the 40 day flood, the plagues of locusts, seas that parted down the middle. Years later, my chest ...

    We both paused and you looked spectacular, even sweaty and breathless as you were, grin stretched across your face like a rubber band pushed to it's limits. It was so simple but it hurt, went through me like a bullet and left me cold when I realized it. I could never have this...

    He triple-dog dared me to love him more so I did, love spreading like a bloodstain across my chest and he laughed like it was funny. You were like that too, always trying to make me show you how I felt, and giggling behind your hands when I tried to hold them....

    You took her scissors and hid them under your deck, but you never did the same for me and turned my hospital visit into a joke. (I know I spent three months away from you but god damn that wasn't your fault. I was so scared in those days. Maybe you were too. I don't kno...

    he sighs and i can feel the scrape of it against my bones. CO2, razor sharp and so cold i pull my sleeves down over arms that are already littered with red half-moons from where my fingernails have dug into my skin, seeking out whatever it is that he seems to find so wrong with me....

    "Jesus, Charlie! Try to keep it together!" the yell rings in his blushing ears and his feet fumble again. he glares at the turf, as if the field is to blame for the lava burning down his cheeks, and not the iceberg eyes on the sidelines....

    The inside pocket of his coat contains his last cigarette and in the back pocket of his jeans there's a Zippo lighter that hasn't felt so heavy in years. Not since she found his pack and cried until he promised it was just left over from before he quit and he had his f...

    "I suppose it wouldn't have worked out either way." you murmur, heavy head resting on my shoulder, eyes closed to the rising sun. My smile grows wider at your words, though somewhere in the back corners of my heart, where I forget to dust, it breaks my heart. ...

    I told you once that I stayed up all night to watch the sun rise on my birthday. I couldn't see it from where I stood, so I climbed onto the top of my brother's friend's van, and waited, wrapped up in a blanket, and sitting on a towel, because it rained through the night. I sat in ...

    Like a book, I will love anyone who dares to open me and take the time to read my words, and flip through my pages. And, like a book, sometimes my readers are careless. They leave me water-damaged, pages missing, pen-marked, spine bent. But I'll always have the readers w...

    Some days I feel like there are cracks in my skin from where you pressed your fingers deep enough to break through to the core of me, because you wanted to know if you were right when you thought that the insides of me were where God left his hand print, and sincerest apologies....
