    Oh knights in shining arm or leg My chest is filled with thee For I have never had to beg, Or kneel on one knee. When pestilence is pestering You've come to rescue me, If preemptively I'm fighting, Or peaceably asleep. In war you are intelligent And nimble with your fleet. Y...

    I stood in a metropolis of sound. Where a trumpet serenaded Tapping fingers on the dashboard of passing cars, Where a drum reverberated The rhythm Of incoherent footsteps through the streets, Where a woman and child Swayed to the swing of the city, Unabashed, unrestrained, unrestrict...

    Time curls like ripened peach skin Pulled from the flesh. Which falls from my hands Before I can think to catch it. But the peach tree out front Is ripe now And freckled with nucleus, cytoplasm, Membrane tickled with baby fuzz. The premature fruits Lay smooth and hard, around the base ...

    The trill of a solo flute Flutters, dances ‘round my head. The mellow whine of violins Dangle gently, spider threads Of melody entwine with Trumpets, blowing sorrow, wishes, aches. Sitting in my concert chair, I hear ribbons turn to Snakes, hiss and rattle, cello moans The clatter of per...

    I wake to peachy yellow morning sun, Swirled cream in skies of light blue tea. And though the grass is brown and overrun, I bask in beauty only shown to me. Footsteps fall like eyes cast to the ground, As strangers trudge down streets of brown and grey. While searching for the lost and never f...

    Words spiral down And pile upon themselves In dunes of shimmering white. But such is the perfection of an untainted landscape That I daren’t step for fear of tarnishing it’s brilliant vastness. And only when the words have melted slightly, And are pooling and dripping like Vanilla icecream...

    Strung up to an IV Joy drips from a sagging plastic bag And as he vegetates on the white sheets of a hospital bed, Laughter tugging on a toothless mouth, Know that he is living His dream....

    When I was young, It was the anticipation of a shot. A stab of pain Worse to wait for Then to receive. I’d sit in the car Covering my eyes. Flashes of Blood And sterile robes. Images of A needle Protruding through my arm. I’d scream and shout, Not wanting the moment to come. ...

    The stars fade into a sea of glass. Their shards of loneliness do fall, Upon the wanderer as he passed The memories of a loved one’s call. The ringing bells of reminiscence Drowned the truth from weary ears. As his feet trod down the road of past tense And through rivers of regretful tear...

    It’s the chirping of the birds, The languid humming of a bee, The brown grass bathed in light, Streaming from an azure sky. It’s the singing of a song, From the lips of a young teen, Her hair whipping in the gentle breeze, That billows from an azure sky. It’s the sitting on the gra...

    I spent so many years gazing out of that window Only to find myself looking back in. To the days of confinement, of schooling, of friendship, Of not knowing where to begin. Now that I’m standing outside of that window Thinking of days that passed by, I’m wishing that I could just do it a...

    Daisy. It’s milky white petals dancing, Swaying, To the melody of the summer wind. Until The chop of orange scissors The grasp of sweaty fingers The running of the faucet Over wilting stem. Daisy. The suffocation of a wicker basket, The shadow of a rose head, The confines of a small ...

    There is a world overhead, Where chances go when actuality’s fled. It swims with could haves, should haves done. It’s glimmering light taunts everyone. How many happy chances gone? Blown away from curtains drawn. Just a block away and we’d never have met. It’s a happy chance that we...

    A hat My thinking cap With its large brim To block the glares of those Who want me to “Conform to modern stereotypes” From its straw dense depths Comes the knowledge to Ponder, question my surroundings Formulate ideas And weave them, one by one Into opinions as sturdy as the cloth t...

    I want to be A sunflower seed. Surrounded by others Just like me. Their hard, black shells Concealing Opportunity, Growth, Beauty. I want to be A sunflower seed. Shed from the confines Of unblemished petals. Let to fall Onto the hard packed dirt. A cold Unfamiliar landscape...

    Grey Blank Dull Clouds Surround the silent city. Hiding a beautiful day From weary eyes. Looming Waiting Stalling Stilling All life around them. The parks fall silent Kites no longer twirl in the incessant wind. Doors Lock. Windows Close. People seek the solitude Of cars that ...

    I’m a sheet of paper Inscribed with experiences So easy to write So difficult to erase Worn by the folds of change Maturing with every Mistaken crease I make. I’m a sheet of paper Unlined by rules That bind grownups To the trampled path Crowded with my individuality Unspok...

    A hollow egg That’s all I am My shell hiding An empty interior Drained of all Caring Hate and Love There is no reason For me to roam this earth My footsteps washed away by time Leaving nothing In the end There is no need to go forward No need to go back No need to live No ne...

    Flurries of ideas Weave together In the night Looping through The snarly branches Of towering trees Carpeting The ice That lies below Revealing a new More glorious view Of the world. The flurries drift Into mounds Of the impossible Rocks in the road Disappear, dissolve Int...

    One day whilst I was walking I came upon a shore Two bridges stood across it Both led towards open doors I just sat down and wondered “What ever shall I do?” For one bridge was my old path And one completely new Chorus Which bridge should I walk across And which bridge should I burn...

    Defenseless, She huddles Beneath An oak tree Intimidated, By its towering presence Dwarfed, By its power She cannot see Past its tangled branches, To the possibilities That lay A few steps beyond her reach Nor can she hear The directions to get there Through the whistling O...
