    New York, a city of humanity and all that is inhuman. The streets infested with motors, the air roaring with sound, and the skies blackened with the venoms of human existence. The grotesque, black clouds foreshadow murder, and an ending of all things beautiful. Yet every storm cloud has a silver lin...

    A wonderful chill follows with your gentle caress: Tracing from my fingertips, along my arm to my neck; Your cool fingers electrify my skin the whole way up, And your lips hover tauntingly, barely touching mine. I press forward: fighting my weakening self control. You manage to keep me at ba...

    Its the simple things that flood my mind: The color green, a hand in mine. The shortest time was so divine. I think now I have found the line. The first time that we met was June, Under the light of a waxing half moon. Marine Core blues, and a woeful tune; Played on repeat - till midnight s...

    Sleep ebbs like an outgoing tide As the crisp morning air around me Slowly fills with dramatic and wonderful sound. I release myself from the embrace of slumber And pull his sweatshirt tight around me. Barefoot, I tiptoe into the living room And watch his fingers fly gloriously over the ...

    The first time you dream, It stabs you It's more like a statement: "This is what you are” Like BAM, Because dreams do reflect They're like a mirror. Ever look at yourself in one Wearing a printed top, How the words appear backwards? Well dreams take life ...

    There is a lacework of cracks in the sidewalk pavement And there are curved claw marks angrily imbed in her skin. Streaks of salt water run down a red face from her eyes to her lips As chewed up fingernails dig furiously deep into her flesh. An ever increasing weight is placed inside her chest...

    For as long as I need breathe; You are the air that I need. You are the sustenance of my existence. You are the superhuman strength That keeps me from drowning In the vast sea of despair That I am in over my head. I'm head over heels, Locked in a world too big to roam. A prisoner of Cu...

    He's my first and my last. He's my future and my past. He's the face in my dreams. He's a part of me it seems. He's sweet and he's funny And he's everything to me. He's the worst and the best. He's butterflies in my chest. He's the song in my...

    You haunt me in my sleep You're the reason that I weep Though I know you're just a memory You're an evil little mystery You're the dark presence inside of me And your face is all my closed eyes see You lie inside, untouchably deep You ugly secret I'm forced to keep ...
