    I sometimes feel like the cigarettes I smoke; Burning persistently from one side While Fate speeds the process from the other, Sucking me into her lungs And expelling the useless smoke once I am spent, Nothing more than a filter To be crushed beneath Her heel, My life rolling away On a cool ...

    With eyes glazed, they came out of the darkness in single file, each carrying a torch. My zombie minions marched dutifully down upon the small, pitiful town. This was just the first step I would take. This small town was nothing. What did it matter if a few drunken rednecks ceased to exist? As I wat...

    The sight of the one you love The way he walks towards you Smiling the smile you love best The sound of his voice, saying nothing and everything The way your heart skips a beat when he laughs And the sound of his heart beating in time with yours The smell of his cologne Mixed with raspber...

    I shall be reborn, When the moon rises again. My body comes to life, When the moon rises again. I stretch and sigh, When the moon rises again. My friends smile down on me, When the moon rises again. My brethren run with me, When the moon rises again. I will be free—free at last, When th...

    Surviving is like enduring the hell of a bad clown. He tries to make you laugh and fails miserably. Then he makes you a useless balloon animal That’s just going to deflate in a week anyway. He pretends that he’s funny, but we both know he isn’t. Suddenly he gives up and his pai...

    I entered a café, a strong wind blowing through the warm shop, bringing the coffee scented air to my cold nose. As the door began to close behind me, the wind took a stack of papers from a nearby customer’s table, one escaping his grasping hands to flit out the door. “NO!” the frantic-loo...
