    I had a dream Where I was falling Like a comet crashing through the galaxy Not very graceful Yet shining and silent Blinking quickly in the new surroundings Standing small in a brightly colored planet Tall blossoms whispering to me Bragging about beauty and vanity Making me feel even smal...

    I am a writer But I didn’t use to be this way I used to think that death was poetic and creative An ironically endless metaphor for so many aspects of life But it lacks its old spirit and soul I used to think that love was beautiful and soulful A deep well into which my words would sound...

    You sit on your gilded throne Waving a scepter of false intelligence Boasting of your power I wait in my cage Eyes narrowed incredulously At the lies concealed beneath your masquerade The city you live in mirrors the barbaric nature You think yourself above I silently scoff at This chil...

    The pale body so still in the small white box The room lined with bright white walls And flowers scattered everywhere They burn my eyes as the tears refuse to fall I feel like I barely knew you We were always no more than strangers Yet I stand here, feeling this soul-crushing sorrow A piece...

    Rolling behind rocks Laugh Scream “Duck and cover!” Boom! Ha! Ha! “You’re dead! We win!” Spinning in delight The colors blending together Stopping quickly She stands before me Her eyes are a long way up And I can’t quite seem to see that far My eyes on the ground I shrug in...

    I feel it like my own heartbeat There one second, gone the next I can feel it echoing throughout my soul Travelling through each nerve ending Spreading throughout my body I can sense it behind my eyes scrolling like a lit display in the twilight Begging for attention Begging to be seen ...

    Sitting “properly” in the chair Back straight, chest out “Flaunt what you got, girl! Be proud of your fabulous figure!” But the smallest movement The twist of the hands, the shifting legs Uncomfortable and tight in your own skin Fight the monster inside as it claws at the jail of you...

    A new day dawns Pink hues stretch across the sky Fading to orange then to gold Slowly stretching limbs Within the warm but suffocating cocoon Let the cocoon envelop you And drag you down into the depths of unconscious bliss But beware, for when you wake the world is unforgiving Stripping a...

    A chance encounter From the billions of people in the universe I meet you My eyes reply hello The laughter, the fun Everything is so simple I am your ally My hand implies our friendship Secrets shared late into the night Always attached at the hip I only see you My heart whispers I lo...

    In my moments of peace Where the world is a black film painted over my eyes Blinding And I fall into the abyss Soundlessly deeper … and deeper I wonder How did I end up in this situation Wonder – why I do not scream all the way to the bottom What have you done to me? My body twists and ...

    Did you notice? Your clothes were just a tad too tight Throwing them away in frustration You turned sideways in the mirror Pinching flesh that seemed looser than your pants You knew it for sure Did you notice? You left the last cookie on the plate And resisted the deadly urge to take a bit...

    Heaven knows you were far from perfect Just the right blend of safe and ordinary A cup of coffee with too much milk And the spoon revolves slowly Blending emotions into harmony A tasteless mix, but intriguing enough to take a sip Just to experience that small drop of boring I thought this, ...

    Endless worrying But lacking motivation To the internet! Burying problems Beneath self-created ones Don’t look at the pile Everything’s fine Do not worry about them You still have more time The beast lurks behind Watching and waiting for you To drown in your tears Sense the b...

    You are over there Radiance and beauty reach To touch another Extending to God Happiness high as heaven Beyond my vision Here the depths of hell -Not one of fire but of ice- Freezes the kind heart World without meaning Where your aura does not touch I am over here...

    In society’s terms, the date is October 22nd, 2013. The time is 3:42 pm. However, in nature, the date is autumn; time: right now. For nature has no limits, has no constraints or boundaries. Here, everything is unique. No tree copies another and no leaf is exactly the same. Each acorn falls in a di...

    Little oak, little oak Grow up big and tall ‘Cause even though you take it slow I know you’ll never fall Wondrous oak, wondrous oak Lit up in the sky When you were struck and had no luck I knew you’d never die Grow up oak, grow up oak I know you’re still alive You’re just asl...

    I stroll through the lot, heading to my car When my friends run over, eyes shining like stars “You know how to drive? Can you give us a ride?” I nod with a smile, and inside they slide I collect their addresses, quick as a breeze But when I reach the street, my mind starts to freeze Which ...

    Wrinkling and folding Like the thinnest tissue paper. When the light hits, the paper burns to glass and silk Reflecting the heavens on its smooth surface Stretching out to the farthest stars and beyond The only two in the universe Are you and me. Me With my head like scissors Cutting thro...

    The one I hate the most, Loathe the most, Fear the most, Is you. Why did I open my mouth And say what I did? Why am I such an idiot? Why can't I just learn To keep my big mouth shut And let my happiness last? I'm sorry I want to apologize a thousand times And make you hate me a...

    You’ve left entirely, And emptiness is all that surrounds me. I would like to think that if you were still here we’d be happy. You’d hold my hand like you always did, You’d stroke my hair like you always did, You’d smile, We’d laugh, We’d talk, But I know it’s a lie. You wer...

    As I lay in my bed, Waiting for sleep that will never come, I see an outstretched hand waiting by my head And I wonder where it is possibly from There is no body to connect it to, No face to identify it by, I’m unsure what to do, There’s nothing I can try. If I take the hand, It may...

    The clock’s tick-tocking so sped up, The only noise it makes is a dull clicking As hours pass in minutes. This is the only sound, And it echoes in the still, dark room. Here time is endless. Speeding and dragging, Yet never moving. A single candle on a small table flickers and flares, C...

    Body broken, battered, beyond repair The physical wounds do not hold a chance To the mental scars that bring me despair Mem’ries of abuse stab me like a lance Not true nor false, your reasons have no claim But why do the tears fall upon my face Useless words of assurance don’t hide pain C...
