    it’s sunday so the girl in the yellow hat will be singing by the pond. we walk in circles at daybreak, talking of the hymns that dared to destroy us. he tried to tell me of the trees, with their beading lies and bleeding faults. (i never listened.) he asked me if i w...

    i once knew a girl, thin with longing, pale with pain. tell me your secrets, i’d whisper, tell me them all. the girl never spoke, never cried, never flinched. i lived within her eyes. they dripped ache, gasped for air. i want to save you, i think i can save y...

    disappointment is cold, honest. it’s the branches that tear at the windows each night, except the branches are his absence and the the windows are your cheeks. one day you’re a blooming flower vibrant in color, bathing in life, then boom so much changes, and you...

    in the mornings when i’d press my cheek against the pavement, he’d come by in his suit, coffee hot, eyes down. what are you doing? i’m writing a book, of course. what kind of book? the kind with lemongrass and vodka, with the girl in the yellow dress, and the boy wh...

    knife to my palm, eyes on the fire, you come rushing to the rescue. i have good news and bad news, you say, which first? i say the good news, so of course, you start with the bad news. you’ve been robbed of all your integrity, your gems of bask, arrogant paints....

    bathed in the milk of sugared figs and benign truths, i’d never have guessed it was you who flew far away, my soul in your hands. if i had just read between the ashen lines, listened to the ache of their scarlet warnings, perhaps vines of fragrant roses would be...

    ever since i walked away from the familiarity of your mountains, the sky hasn't looked quite right. come to mention it, nothing has. you see, the trees have come alive, their roots strangling me in my sleep, and the winter snow burns hot against the ache of this skin. my love, y...

    when i was young i tried to capture the words of the wind in empty jam jars, breathing in what i could beneath the secrecy of my bedsheets. it was back when my writing wasn't complete garbage, when the boy with the camera didn't live so far away. i could sing a song about that...

    A little girl drowns in a river, the corrupted water muffling her screams. Her blood runs cold as cutting arctic air, her arms thrash rabidly against the smacks of the tide. Visions corrode at the corners of her fading mind, along the sharp array of rocks and dirt. Along the array of death. Mother...

    i debate the unsaid words that strain with persistence from your eyes, eyes of emerald cities with buildings tipped with gold. in increments we sip on beer laced with lust, as we slip from the safety of kisses into the free fall of unknown. i know you won't re...

    i drew a line on a map to where my heart could find a home, then drowned it in the wrath of the ocean's unflinching tide. bottles of wine can numb the ache of any heart, and music can drown out words that no one wants to hear, but dear cameron i am unable to forget the curve of your l...

    the sky breaks your mother’s favorite vase and you grow up believing that nothing is worth the lossage of dark rooms and the cry of teething infants. lipstick stains napkins that once held the faith and chastity of spare change at the bottom of dormant fou...

    i escape from what haunts me in the midst of the night. i wake through smothering demons, i must find the light. they cling to my limbs and scratch me as i creep through the panicked door, and although the night air mutes them, i can’t take is; i want more. my bare feet know the path whil...

    i wake up in the morning. mind gone. vision fogged. toes numb. lips chapped. one more day. just one more. they have the nerve to slur these words in the name of a faceless whisper. a whisper who crushes my nicotine-scratched lungs with claws of no mercy. a whisper which sn...

    they found her body floating limply at the bottom of his disconnected heart. she drowned in his facades, fell gladly between his sheets, maybe even felt loved for a while. but she wasn’t, nor were the ones before her. so why is that i sit here twiddling at wires, trying to fix his circu...

    take me back to the hours when my eyelashes would cut at your frosty cheeks and we needn't rely on bottles and smoke to make us feel like this. tell me you still feel like this. i still feel like this....

    i never quite saw the reasoning behind charred cigarettes on cold winter days, or the necessity for your withered complaints when we had everything. so tell me i’m everything i’m nothing, break my soul, i don’t have one, and mend my heart it healed months a...

    stop spinning water glass tornadoes, encouraging a silence that strips petals from the most innocent of flowers perched casually on the moon. i tell your eyes i can no longer reach those flowers. that i am no longer an astronaut....

    I am surrounded trapped captured by everything. And endless race, this life is. The finish line so far from where I stand. So I cheat. Cool night air floods my lungs. My cheek embraces the raw pavement beneath. I feel a car’s roar, its bright lights piercing through my c...

    it is the days when the sun slaps down on glossy perspiring bodies that my thoughts exhume you. i know i should forget, but how often do you come across a lad with indigo eyes, born with a pen in his hands? i refuse to allow myself to bury you completely, therefore my shovel wil...

    with torn stockings and sticky mascara, she trembles numbly, unable to speak. the night’s events act as pestering flies, swarming her distorted mind, drinking in her floral perfume: the fuzzy hum of liquor, sloshing within her stomach. the benign touch of his large hands, shortl...

    This silent pain I can take no more. My gates have been shut for too long now. First it was easy, first this was just a simple wish. I’d give anything to take it back to rewind to that place of innocence. Innocence that is forever lost. The voices started soft grazing outside la...

    the great oak trees that dance at twilight were the first to see it lurking forward from the distance. they whispered it to the feral vines, who’s vicious habits of gossiping once again got the best of them. it grew larger day by day and i worry upon its arrival....
