    Between the mountains of pain and of vengeance, nestled deep below the hillsides of incongruity and despair there is a valley. Far below the immeasurable altitudes of avalanching hopelessness and the caves where hypocrisy lays down its filthy head, there is a stream, running over clear waters. ...

    Your absence encompasses a space that you alone could not fill Stretching out over the pitch dark realms of displacement and improbabilities, Swallowing me whole. And your silence enchants me in a way that your words never could, twisting echoes of anguish around us as your tide carries l...

    I show up at your door step in November. It is a warm day in November, the exact kind of fall day that I love and the sun is beginning to set through the deep yellow streets of our past. This used to be my doorstep, and I remember this faintly as I ring your bell, as I catch my breath and I wait. ...

    We were born in a field made of silence and tinfoil, The grass shrinking upwards, with static for skies And we lie decomposing apart from the sunshine Just shadows of bodies, with heartbeats for eyes. While the pulse of the ground takes us over, your hopes And your fears and your darkness see...

    I am a sea creature, You are the lighthouse keeper, watching the storm brew, and watching me thrash at the shores, spilling over the sides to your land where the water flows back to the sea And I am breathing this water like salt in your lungs, I am waiting for riptides to tow me away or...

    It was morning before I knew you Bright yellow sunshine breaking through the old weathered curtains Of my mind and the way I woke up to the intoxicating scents of a new day drifting in Drifting over me, cleansing me whole and revealing A sparkling bright world outside the walls I'd built up and...

    It is morning and you're stirring and I'm Running Through the sunrise, and the mountains And the hope that this deep silent evening will Swell again Breathe again Rise up again, just to eat you alive or asleep Or take you over and take you Down. And I'm moving through this Silence...

    The summer sun taunts as you light your cigar (Oh, the way that she sang while you played that guitar) And I’m writing our story, the paper ignites (But I’m trying to hold onto those big-city lights) Now you came for a nighttime, we sat up downstairs And this strange disconnection became ...

    You find yourself sitting at a blank computer screen late at night, searching desperately for words that mean nothing; hypothetical phrases seemingly trapped behind some invisible door in your mind… You are not writing. Because writing is a blood that comes bursting out of you, in spite of a...

    June is the only month that breathes In this corruption And as the night wears on, This heat starts to Weigh us both down I forget what it means to be in love When I’m with you And if I can’t find my body Beneath these sheets Then you can’t find your soul. But there’s a pulse ...

    I met with God At a shady old parlor At one in the morning. And I asked him “God Can you please wipe the dirt Off my telescope lens So that I can find the answer In the stars?” And God stroked his chiseled grey beard And took a good, strong drink And told me “Dear The answer Is th...

    Silhouettes of crashing waves and bitten moons and liquid bodies trying to be free. And I will sing your final hallelujah all the way down to a volatile green morning somewhere far off from this shore. See, it was never about the ways that you could change beneath a great gray wande...

    Here's to the very first days of our journey The uncertain firsts and the nights when we wept; The tastes unfamiliar, the daytimes enduring, Oblivious silence where secrets were kept. And the sights that we saw seemed as big as the mountains The stories they told us were tired and true Thoug...

    I loved you, I left you, I set you apart I grew up beside you, I followed my heart I ate when I hungered, I laughed till I cried I scratched where it itched and I left you behind I couldn't quite see you I couldn't find me I searched where I knew and forgot who to be I left where I loved and...

    The problem with this boy is that he can’t kiss And the way that his fingers encircled my wrists Left those pressure points swelling below my tattoo When he fingered the outline like you used to do And the problem with this boy is that he’s too nice See, my parent’s, they love him, th...

    When Mom bakes chocolate-chip pancakes Thursday morning, I know something's up. Something big. I mean, my Mom's not the type of person to go around baking fatty breakfasts for her 16-year-old daughter, who should be watching her weight, because hello, you can't be a dancer if you're a size like, 6 ...
