    If you lifted stars, flipped up corners of the midnight sky, blanket over day - black - you would find fireflies swiftly cursing stories shared to shooting stars, there are no secrets here. If you watch the curls of innocense, framing the face of youth - Let her breathe fresh in and ...

    Spinning in circles Dizzy down a drain thickened with heavy liquor words And mascara plundered eyes- The envy of all those who encounter her- Let's turn you green for a spin See how it suits you during this beautiful season of spring. So scared of heartbreak, of making mistakes so I keep ...

    We are so foreign to each other Brand new, shining eyes. Brilliant blue mixes with green In which pale pink songs of roses can be heard. When we breathe, We inhale each other and exhale US. We trespass the lines marked strictly by dad's threatening words And mom's clenched hands...

    This wire I’ve dreamt up that creates a connection between us cannot fathom my heart sitting weighing down the thin metallic lifeline. My brain twirls backwards as I stand, shaky legs- not a tight rope walker- just someone who has unwillingly surrenderd her heart to another the wi...

    Go tell her this; Whisper slowly so she hears & repeat only once. Then turn & run like the wind. Speak to her this: "By here, a bomb lays itself to be Seen but not touched. Suffer, if you wish, its hurtful explosion. Not of Sulfer, but of memories & words. So walk steady. Do...

    Harbor me inside protective arms, Where I felt lace sleeves slip something around my shivering self. Pronounce me home. A sweet, settling, heavy bruise against words. Slice out pages from my book of memories: Leave only those that catch fire On the egdes By themselves. It has yet to consum...

    Three ragged days Leave behing breaths of promise. Sunday builds a pressure so full, I bite back on screams. Taken by nightmarish words that fall from momma's mouth, I hustle straight to Monday When promise breaks and the future appears...

    Give me strangled Torn & fought. Send me broken - May they be weak. Cry; steal tears - rest heavy hearts against my lap. Wounds will heal Restoring sense and Installing basics. It will hurt. You will fall. The past Passes Between transitions to ever present future. Slowly, Demons...

    She was the summer breeze Cinnamon sugar and sand castles, the beach & the sunset. Pouring pounding rain, a crackling fire, shared warmth under a blanket and a kiss. Food hot off the grill, splashes that reached the patio from the pool, hot and sticky weather, and strung up lights that lethar...

    "I'm sorry." The apology, worn, over used tore through her- Damaging the feeling around her soul, cutting the connection. everything inside shut down, shut off. she collapsed against him unaware that the devils smile had slunk across his face, curling his mind into another de...

    The bar smelled like Lemon margaritas and vodka Tripped glasses, heavy smoke and beer. The counter was littered with napkins and pixie sticks wrappers The bartender looked at my empty glass and up at my face, silently asking whether or not I thought I could handle a refill. I shook my head no...

    The knife is slender A safety net after I had pounded the panic button The wild smell of distress meets some strangers They acknowledge its presence and then quickly Turn into a land of consumed evenings laced with washing dishes and peeking into the world of current news and crying, as they loo...

    They wave at each other from across the street: An ice cream store behind him and a sandwich shop behind her The sun hazing above both of them. Dusty cars ripple on either side of the crosswalk and wait – Drivers tap their fingers against their steering wheels while children bicker in the back...

    Small heat – bursts of addiction – translate touch to passion, while breath delays, patience is carved into the soul. a smile – recognition – slinks its way across both faces, a lazy, lemon-flavored secret to be tucked away for a night dream. rain trickles down the classroom window as ...

    Run wild against the “cant’s” Like liquid. Slender Dirt showers leave nothing to hide. Teach what works While bruises blossom Like people on the page of a newspaper. They turn their heads – they have their own dark morning to deal with. Carve your wish inside the cave of your heart: ...
