    Cracked pavement slapped by warmonger shoes That waged war on the sons of labor and broken homes. A slippery concoction of smog and sunlight rests in this place Layered with madness and bitter feuds. And there on a street corner rests a bottle, Swallowed in the cloak of a brown paper bag. Its ...

    There is a dark glamour about this place. Twisting on shadowy limbs as you wrap your arms around my shallow silhouette In hope that either of us might feel a tad bit human by The idea of motel room love. We can’t be whole can we Broken bottles litter our lives Yet we feel comfort in this di...

    Perhaps, we're just all built flawed. We can't be blamed for our actions Because in fact genetics are to blame. Our relationships go sour because Perhaps we have some great-grandfather Who liked to sleep around. We can not fight what the blood in our veins was Made to do. Every dou...

    A breeze ruffled the scene causing faces of a picture perfect moment shift to surprise as the wind blasted past them. A father held his young daughter in his arms to one side watching her braids fly up into the air. The wife or replacement mother as she was often called by the eldest daughter attemp...

    A vase with a crumpled bouquet set within it sits on a kitchen countertop, A half an inch of water keeping the speckles of life left in the dying plants. I should really throw them away and toss what came with them to rot in a landfill, But it’s not that simple. Something about watching the c...

    I want your lips to move This silence is violent as it tears tiny stiches from my skin. Your eyes are looking at something that isn’t there, but My reality doesn’t draw your harmony and acknowledgement. I want to shake you awake. Wake up. Do you recognize me? My face is just a tad bit ol...

    I’ve begun to wonder if the word ‘I’ has any particular meaning. Many may say that it refers to one’s self, but are you sure That it doesn’t refer to the part of us that is capable of being judged by others? We live in a society that would rather have more things in common When we are...

    The invasion is over I suppose Artillery shells lay more abundant Than beating hearts Have we got our medals yet? A shiny golden trophy is much more important to society Than another hungry mouth, isn’t it? New Mall Coming In Six Months. That’s odd, shouldn’t it say new cemetery. We c...

    Smoke and cyanide cover your lips, Give me a sip of your desperation. Weave your physique around my shoulders, Lock your legs around my sanity. Spin me about with your mouth, Drag me under the icy waves of your heartbeat. Touch my chest and leave the pockmarks of your poison touch, But o...

    Handprints in the sand. Fingertips lying left in the coastline. Lifelines traced into the face of creation. Memories left for others to ponder. A pail and shovel on a cold summers day. The remnants of a sand dynasty left under siege by the high tide. Childhood architecture becoming part of...

    Dreams are forsaken memories. They tell us the deep desires, we are forbidden to touch. Our structural faults show when that dream is pulled away from us. We’re flying, but we always get shot down and dragged back beneath heavy hands. I’m spiraling out of the sky. Dreams flickering past my ...

    They give glances. Exchange a word or two. Let the silence come back. And Repeat. They open their hearts up once. Closing it as fast as it reaches the light. Let the heartbreak come. And Repeat. Forgetting for a moment they let a beast rip through their iron-locked hearts. Lay in the bliss for...

    It was like a walk through serenity; Fractured puzzle pieces coming together as our hands did the same. We just walked with only a word or two parting our lips… But words soon became a story; Love soon turned into a run. I didn’t consider our momentum to throw us out of each other’s orb...

    There was a distortion in the glass Twisting as it kept the light from meeting your eye You are impaired; Blocked of knowing what is of illusion and what is of reality, But you won’t change your view to see clearly again. Ignorance is bloody bliss to people like you; People who refuse to loo...

    Jeremy took a sip of coffee letting his nerves be masked over by its bee like buzz. The way his shoulders rolled back into a more natural position with a single taste drove him crazy. It wouldn’t have been advice he would have taken if his head wasn’t two notches away from its regular broadcasti...

    Do you know there is a box hidden in the back of my dresser with your name on it? Sometimes I pull it out and look at what’s inside; old photographs of you with your daddy when you were a baby, a clipping of your mud brown hair bound with twine, your hospital bracelet, and an envelope. You were my...

    Do you know that your picture is still left on my bedside table? I always fall asleep to your face, your smile. When I roll out of bed at a quarter to seven I always think I hear your feet landing on the floor in the room next to mine. My body is used to seeing you walk out in just your boxers with ...

    Mr. Zebra, do you enjoy standing there, enclosed? Flashing lights turning your eyes into solemn mirrors There is always a hunter close by and you try to ignore it But you can’t ignore the hunter because he has you trapped. Mr. Zebra, do you enjoy being part of the show? Every time you m...

    I saw your letter; its black ribbon held under a crimson wax seal. I wish I could read it, but I know it isn’t time. I can see you writing the letter; your pale hand holding a quill letting the ink drop across the worn parchment. Some people say sending letters is old fashioned, but writing a l...

    Do you know that you haunt my dreams? Why can’t you let me be? Seeing your face makes my chest ache in a bad way, do you know that? Have you ever seen me shudder at the very sound of your voice? Do you know that I can’t stand you? Do you even know who I am? Do you know that I would live t...

    Shards of truth are all that’s left; Broken gems that sparkled like your b****** smile. I used to stand here, all alone in the winter air, waiting for you, but you never come. I used to send selfish prayers to a god who I had never put my faith into asking that he would mak...

    You and I were the same, And I use the word “were” because it represents the past. We used to stand back to back letting our souls intertwine creating a barrier that no one could break. I remember running through the California night air, your hand in mine, drunk on happy thoughts. I used t...

    Life began for her on a sunny afternoon, Under the caring gazes of a mother and father And happiness flourished like a garden But every garden withers and so does love Waves rise, Water falls, People rise, Civilizations fall, Love comes, Love goes, But happy endings never come Words o...
