    The words are getting tangled As they pass between my lips They grow twisted and contorted With every passing trip You say you need some time So you'll avoid me for a while You promise that we'll still be close But there's reluctance in your smile I never wanted what you asked for Or fo...

    She inhales her smoke like perfume And lets the smog seep past her skin Turned to poison slipping slowly Through the arteries within She watches embers smolder And lets her cigarette drag on Choking back the fatal ashes That she wished for all along The cancer cells start building Craft...

    Another wrinkle in our friendship In a stretch of furrowed land The creases sweep and undulate And over time, expand The seas do part and crash As they weather wicked winds Each wave rolls into its brother For one ends as one begins Lightning flashes overhead And forecasts gushing rain ...

    Time swiftly runs past But I’m perfectly still Waves rolling like rapids As I sit and distill I watch from a distance As clock hands glide by I have fifty two days left One blink of an eye A sense of nostalgia Sprinkles the air Four years have gone And I’ll never know where...

    The subtle hint of blackberries That lingers on our lips Rolling down each face and chin Catching collars as it drips The bittersweet nostalgia When I lick the taste away Remains seared into my memory On a bright red summer day She kisses him like passion fruit But his mouth has fallen ...

    Glasses may improve your vision But they cannot help you see You cling to your religion But it will not set you free You follow paths that others set But you never carve your own Paint pictures of invented gods So you won’t go alone You claim to be in endless flight But you fl...

    He lives in a mansion Across the bay from the green Never daring to cross the space in between He walks in the shadows Behind the mask of his guise Only visible to T.J.’s wandering eyes Extravagant parties That raged all through the year Hoping by chance that she would appear He hea...

    Yellow paper crumbles fast Peeling bits off from the wall Rip away my wrinkled skin Watching pieces as they fall Digging deeper through the glue Tear away the years we’ve worn Might we come to the conclusion That everything is torn Once we get to the old paint That is chipped and peel...

    When I was younger, I knew no name Calling softly to my mother, Who was too far gone to even hear me I reached across What seemed like the Great Plains Desperately trying to reach The woman I hardly knew Who barely gave me a fleeting thought Wistfully throwing me aside In pursuit of more ...

    I dream in colors And thoughts incomplete The swirls of the pavement Lift beneath my feet Cars passing aimlessly, As they roam the streets & how everything feels so surreal. The leaf falls reluctantly Crashing down from the sky Everything comes down From no matter how high Even bird...

    The world in color The palest of green Ecstatic orange The colors I dream. The world in stereo An emotion of sound A lyrical symphony Explodes from the ground. The world in harmony The meshing of gears Endlessly shifting And shedding no tears. The world in character All the world...

    Pen to paper; When two friends meet The silent pencil Welcomes the wrinkled sheet The two catch up, And reminisce old times They dance on a vision Lust and romance, intertwine United in passion, Expression in its greatest form The pen sings to the paper, A poem is born...

    If all the wants and needs Sprinkled my thoughts like planted seeds. Delicate blossoms, hidden by vines The prettiest flowers are hardest to find. To hold a star in your hand, The illustrious moment slips through like sand. The golden ores of opportunity ring, Sometimes the prettiest birds ...

    A plastic smile You wore as a mask An empty heart You wore as a badge A secret ache You hid from the world A hollow laugh You could easily fake A rusted knife Carved into your skin You drew a smile To hide your pain And then laid down To be alone once again...

    Me through a lens The easiest way to see A skewed vision Is better than me Smile for the camera Capture me on tape You see what you want Distorted figures and shapes Develop the negative Erase all the flaws Hang up on a wire The me you never saw...

    It’s funny how we see things upside down… And up until now, I had no idea Foolishly thinking that was how things were supposed to be. Nothing’s changed; But everything’s different. The knowledge is enough, To move mountains, shift opinions I’m seeing the same old view, But now i...

    Flies on the wall Thoughts in my head Beads on a string Paint made of lead. I never say what I mean I only speak in tongues You decipher my words You're not the only one. You tell me your secrets I sing like a bird The scars on my wrist Forget what you heard. The lies on my...

    A girl had been hurt. She precariously lay Under a minefield, With nothing to say. If lies were like timebombs, And rumors like clocks, Then Words were like opening Pandora’s box. Once they’ve been uttered, It’s never quite the same. What’s worse isn’t the lies But ...
