    Sick is only a mental state Full of white walls Let fatigue wash over me I sink like a lost anchor Sick is not real But makes white scars Visible only when I float at the surface Sick is a white falsity Cures are not reality They do temporarily relieve Feel Better Sickness is a t...

    Practice before a mirror, Rehearse that winning smile. This is the only version, now You can paint me for a while. This is the only me there is, A grin from ear to ear. I would not want to lead you on, For you would see my fear. My fear is this, and this is true. I am a hypocrite, and ...

    I have a tension within my chest That calls me from inside And says This room is not the place for you, Go and witness the world. I have a need to stretch my legs, Open my eyes, Remove the glasses that don’t allow me to see. I need to leave this room I’m in, This air won’t let m...

    I don’t know. I don’t know what to say about that. When I am asked what I’ll do with myself, with my future, I draw blanks. That is not to say I don’t think about it, I do. There is this quintessential and definite answer that people expect from you. It starts with, “Oh, yes I’m plan...

    Yesterday, I watched as a sailboat glided Ripped Through my saltwater ocean. I gathered my breath, and blew, a gentle breeze Storm To fill its sails with heavy air. I urged its masts to whip, its wheels to turn. I willed it to move along, please, my boat Rapidly, go, intimidate The so...

    And following the trail you left behind, Soon after, will the lines of time, Wrinkled, tangled, become smooth? Of course they would not. Should not. The path you found was full of light And nothing escaped your vivid sight. What you beheld was time, beginning its course, Running through your...

    When years meant nothing But a happy birthday, blow out the candles now. I tied my own laces, pride, and stepped out. I wondered at white specks on my fingernails And at gasoline rainbows on the street. I wished on every star, Falling or not. And blew on dandelions Not believing anymore Tha...

    I liked the sunsets. It's corny to say that, but I did. There's something about sunsets that makes them fascinating, pulling; they change constantly, ­depending on the weather, where you are, and how you happen to be feeling at the time. At camp, the sunsets were always serene and peaceful. And qui...

    I am from infinite summer rains, From wrong assumptions. I’m from red ants and sand being Blown in the air. I am from “kooshai” and corn flakes That became soggy when I Left them in the bowl. I’m from aged souls who passed their days In green plastic lawn chairs, Who watch...

    Oh, memory mine Unconnected to my Mind, your ties loosen, You drop deep into The forgotten crevices and caves Under the earth of my Thinking, pulsing, sorry Time has knighted you, deemed You its role model, Mischievously chuckles as it Ruefully allows me to come Just within reach and...

    Heart beats, thud after thud in Agonizing anticipation that becomes You, in all your life’s purpose. Body’s core, pulling itself away from Weighted restraints, with the strength Of all your life’s purpose, heading homewards Moaning, crying, laughing, squinting through Hysteric tears as ...

    Laminated, protected precious Pages from servants’ unworthy fingers Greasy and rough, all your fault. Eyes can’t melt, stuck at the window Watching plastic boats swim through the clouds. They cry, and giggle when diamond tears Hit the ground like miniature earthquakes Shattering and makin...

    The red silk flag gusts but Where is the wind That blew easy decisions Through my hair Made me close my eyes To other choices But blushed at my confidence? Paths are slippery Red and slippery like silk But I may walk two at once When wind has lost its presence And no longer blows me in t...

    I say, we care too much. Stand back and take a look At what you all have created. Created nothing worth caring for. I climb, and balance one foot Against the top of the railing And sweep my gaze over the world A world silently anticipating my words. I blink, and a fog settles as the world ...

    Attempting, not for the first time To peel the paper away and open it up I cut the top off and felt a dim pride Radiate from my fingers But in putting it away I didn’t know how close The cold metal was to my hand And it sliced through my finger And I bled and swore And called out her ...

    Not so difficult That’s what Time tells us While he sits in his impenetrable Cloud of optimism. We’re watched and neglected While we strive to walk the street That Success has built brick by concrete brick Before us. Fate laughs smugly at our attempts The wisest mind that lives Not so ...

    You must know, I find myself holding my unsteady Hand over the skin where I suppose the heart is And my lips part to allow short, white breaths To pass, and I do catch myself drifting unhesitatingly To the rose window where I am certain you shall be Waiting for me to find you at last, my long...

    No, I told you, you cannot hide yourself from me. Or haven’t I told you? I know I imagine saying it to you. I might have imagined it this time, too. I might just be hiding from you, because You might not know how clearly I see you. I see you as clearly as if you had cut yourself open And s...

    And those moments when the window curtains fly In the afternoon wind, and it drives your thoughts Into those what-if kind of thoughts, and you long To step out of your window and fly, like that bird With the brown speckles and crooked beak, that Never sings. You watch it fly into the far-away...

    Cold breaths melt away when summer’s rays Push them out of our tired thoughts. They always do. It’s the relief my breaking heart yearns for Every year, before I reach my Breaking point. Quiet, subdued sighs of relief Emanate from within our imaginations And color the sky in warm, hopefu...

    The blue is swallowed up by comforting darkness In the night, and the gloating impressiveness of day is temporarily gone. My porcelain smile shatters to reveal my skin and In the night, I am stripped of false identity. My cold feet run faster than wings carry the birds Yet I can’t stray from ...

    I broke open the hard shell And removed the small strip of paper. My fortune told me that Things would get brighter. I sipped my tea, We discussed my future. My mother told me that Things could get brighter. I cried in my sleep Falling faster and faster. Nowhere in my dreams Were thin...
