    Look into her eyes as she grips your hands and tells you, "My Love, you are a Light," And she, believing her soul to be so dark, Can feel no contentment without you near; No comfort, no balance, and no relief... Only an ache and a cold reminder that she is alone, Only the vulnerabili...

    She walked along the shore. Seashells glistened, their luster made of saltwater and sunlight. Though salt and sun can be abrasive and caustic, water and light seem to transform them into peaceful necessities of life. One shell stood out among the scattered, shattered fragments in the sand. She picke...

    Walk the hallway, calmly, slowly Look down, little girl, or you should fear. Grip the roses. (Thorns will bite you.) Watch your step. (The time is near.) Petals scattered, feelings tattered; Expectations fain emerge. Tickling sorrows in your stomach, Butterflies are on the verge. Cold pearls...

    Darling... If any warmth remains in your heart, Please be still and nurture it's ember. The aching will not soon depart, But lingers for forever. Shall we sacrifice the softness of our souls; That gentle, quiet, precious sight For the ephemeral comfort the devil sold To decompose ou...

    Tears that jade made my happiness emerge... This cloak of darkness hides them from all eyes. A scream from midnight reaches me to purge This restfulness from my strategic lies. Dear God, please hold me closer or I'll fall; Dear Demon, let me stagger from your shouts. This ache is muting e...

    Dear Diary, This book was meant to be a place where I could say anything I wanted. Diary, you are supposed to be a best friend of sorts; a friend who I can tell anything, and not worry about what you think. But the sad truth is, you cannot be that splendid outlet I was hoping for. I don’t feel ...

    “Forget the world and come with me,” He said, holding out His open hand. I started crying uncontrollably… Yet it comforted me to know that He knew what I was feeling. I didn’t have to explain it. I didn’t have to explain how sorry I was for not taking His hand sooner, or how amazed I was t...

    Tahira stared down at her hands. She was wringing them endlessly: one of the many quirks that singled her out as a freak. What did that even mean, anyway? Everyone has quirks. But, just because hers were visible, they defined her. It seemed unfair. There were a lot of things that were unfair. Bein...

    It feels like forever since I knew what was wrong I used to worry, but now I wonder, “Why so long?” “This dreary aura is about me, I told you it's because I'm not that strong I gave up on myself when you gave up on me” It's all my fault – “I know, I know” But there's somethin...

    I stood inhaling your smoke and humid breath… This battlefield is foreign to me and my senses. It comes in gulps and sighs and panting, As I wait for a respite from the smell of death. I wonder what life is left, Because I feel so alone, so lost, so breathless I watched as you smote my deare...

    What would you say if I couldn’t take the silence? I’m listening to the sound and the noise of my conscience. Everyone is holding me in the darkness, Pushing me down so I’ll keep my distance No one knows distance like I do— It’s a lack of connection, the absence of interest. One-side...

    I think so deeply into the forest That I never see the trees: For ash—and weeping willows stand Stripped of their fullness and flowing leaves. They are barren of all their former glory, Bereft of all but a chilling impression. Their sadness and illness, so grey, tell a story, The image of...

    Watching and waiting for a new start, Patiently yearning as it all falls apart, Dwelling on infinite insanity, Wondering with irrational thoughts if there is any rationality, We all end up counting something in life… Seconds, minutes, years, and moments; Memories, tragedies, and priceless se...

    Paroxysms of sickening despair With shadows overlap the sunlight’s gaze, And while I wait in anguish for somewhere I long for tender hearts and love’s embrace. Could any beauty venture to contrast Its shallow self with genuine concern? I wonder who mistakes it for what lasts And never sto...

    Here I am, stuck in the middle of time. Where did it begin? How will this end? I stare at the clock and watch its hands. The hour hand surpasses the minute As my confused idea of time carries out. Hours fly by, but I dread minutes alone. My focus is coming in and out. A wedge out of th...

    A famine has crept out in the land Where my soul hasn't the heart to reveal its plans. Barren, dry, and crumbling sand Holds up the structure that caring commands. Dream of a forest, lush and green Where willows weep along the streams, But jaded favor there remains-- A faux peace and a...

    Dear Love, How you have hurt me; Lurking inside me, I’m trembling beside thee. Brimming too easily in my weary eyes, You, my Love, have broken my heart Telling my soul things that cannot be true, Making me do things I never should do. Love, will you rest? I do not have the strength. ...

    Hot tears stream down my frosted skin Where cold blood flows deep within. Half withered away, I look up in despair, Realizing I could never touch what's there. In the shadows of the night, I forgot myself, my life, my faith. Shame lingering in my soul Made me forget to seek His face...

    Emptiness of voided dreams, And vague understanding of what I am Leaves a tangled web to weave And pulls me far from where I am. The clarity of other minds Makes me jealous -- a sensual desire Oh, make me like these different kinds, Pull me from all wet and mire. What is this shadow? Th...

    Please reach up from behind me And spray me with your salty mist. I run my fingers against your waters. With your perfume the air is kissed. A child plays upon your banks, Chasing your blues and auqumarine. The pattering of his bare feet Is muffled by the waves he sees. With a flash of a...
