    She watches from her perch, White wings washed in light, The Christmas tree is glowing bright, Her porcelain face remains unchanged, The years go by but she does not age, The children grow and then they leave, The Christmas angel does not grieve, Her place in life has been set, A thing...

    I hate the remembering, Of painful things, Things said and done, And empty needs, The need for friendship, Loyal and true, The words, So cold, And a painful cruel, The look of disgust, There on your face, And the echo of footsteps, So final, Set pace, To the tears that come, Come flo...

    Stop it, Stop looking at me, Those eyes, So judgmental, That gaze, So heavy, You don’t know anything about me, So stop it, Stop judging me, Stop hurting me, Stop crushing me, It’s painful, It hurts, I can’t see, I can’t think, I can’t breathe, Why are you doing this to me? ...

    Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock, Hear the clock, Hear the clock, Time moves on, You do not, Tick-Tock, Hear the clock. Tick-Tock, Hear the clock, Watch, the second hand won’t stop, Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock. Hear the clock, Hear the clock, Listen as it goes Tick-Tock. Tick-Tock-Tick....

    I wonder, is it possible to not think? Because I don’t think I had a single thought as I sat in silence, listening to my mom and her sisters discussing whether or not Poppy was going to die with the nurse. I suppose I should have been in tears or that I could say that I was in shock but I wasn’...

    My brother came home from the war today, I feel so sad, He won’t talk to me, My brother came home from the war today, Each time I look at him I cry, My brother came home from the war today, He doesn’t react when I speak to him, My brother came home from the war today, As they lower him i...

    Smell the brine of the sea, Hear the cry of the gull, Feel the grit of the sand, See the gold of the sun. Time passes, And water wears away the stone, It carves, Like a knife, Into the flesh of the earth, Scarring, Yet making beautiful. Rivers flow, They move, And shift, Twist, An...

    One after another, All in a line, Covered in rust, And seen to by time, Held up by wire, Twisted up tight, It's the only thing, That keeps them upright....

    Beatles crawl across my skin, The wind pushes against my limbs, The sun beats down on my flesh, Time passes and I take breath. Squirrels prance upon my crown, I dance and I dip down, My roots dig deep into the ground, Time goes by and I breathe. Seasons change, They come and go, And I ...

    There is magic in music and music in magic. The way the sounds pull at your heart, not even needing words to make you laugh…or cry. The way a season can pass in a single day…that is best described by a symphony. It was all magic, and all music. No one knows that better than me. So I suppose I s...

    My heart sister, They block her out, How dare they, How could they, Why would they, She knows me, So well she knows me, It's as though we see through the same set of eyes, And think, With the same mind, Don’t misunderstand me, Different, We are, She, Is more wild and experienced...

    Untitled, My life falls under that category, My personality is untitled, I’m afraid I’m rather plain, My accomplishments are untitled, No one cares to know me name, My past is untitled, There’s nothing extraordinary to say, My present is untitled, I take it day by day, My future ...

    The most terrifying of all my nightmares, Only this one’s painfully real, The deadly rage that boils inside me, Making me blind with the red, Darkest darkness, Reddest red, Heated blood, Liquid lava, Clenched jaw, Pulsing hate, Anger thuds in my brain, My arm moves of its own accord, I...

    Just a few more minutes, Really no time at all, If only I’d held my temper, Grind my teeth, Seethe and seethe, If only I'd held on a little longer, I'd been doing so well, No trouble at all, If only I'd held on a little longer, Just a few more minutes, And I'd have be...

    Do you remember? I do. How we used to be friends, How we were always together, How our eyes would meet and we’d start smiling, Do you remember? I do. How we’d race, And see who could swing the highest, Do you remember how if we had to leave, You’d say “bye bye butterfly”, And I’...

    I'm so tired, Of putting on this face, I'm so tired, Of coming to this place, I'm so tired, Of dealing with these people, I'm so tired, Of waking, And wanting to cry, I'm so tired, Of practicing a laugh, A smile, I'm so tired....

    He left her standing there like a toy outgrown, Because she was different from him, Without even an explanation, At these actions another crack appeared on her heart of porcelain, “I hate you, I’ve always hated you, You and I were never friends!”, At those words another crack appeared o...

    Such a terrible pain as I have never felt before, Reaching into every point of my being, Feeling as if it extends to far beyond my body, Swirling in my soul, Churning in my stomach, Making my eyes grow dull, And my heart feel as if it has been completely crushed, The word they use to describe...

    What right has he, How dare he ask me, ME, Such a thing, How am I supposed to know, I’m 14, I don’t read minds, I have no idea whatsoever, He should know even better than I, He lives with her, I didn’t marry her, He did, I didn’t have three kids with her, He did, So how DARE he...

    A little boy sits in a corner and cries and cries and cries, “Don’t cry little boy,” I say. But I’m too far away to be heard, And I’m too far away to be seen, “Stop, Someone, Help him, Stop, Someone, Care.” But the people walk by, Without so much as a glance, As if he didn...

    It’s dark and quiet, Can I run, Should I run, I want to run, I want to run far away, So very far away, I never want to look back, I never want to see this place again, Never want to hear these voices again, They think they know me, These voices, They do not, How could they, I do not k...

    The girl is in her room again, The four year old is screaming again, The TV is blaring again, “I think I’m losing my mind”, The girl is glaring again, The four year old is pouting again, The parents are talking again, “I think I’m losing my mind”, The girl is sighing again, ...
