    It's a long road back to perfect. I knew a man once who said he'd been to the top and back. He said that amongst the angels, he was the defect. He said he lost himself in an ideal that threw him out of track.   Never again did he try to walk that road. But right here, right now, It ...

    Docile bodies are valued and esteemed. As kids, we’re all taught to have these social constructs dreamed. Letting dresses confine you, All while dreaming of having it in a size two. Femininity asks for passivity. Which limits one’s opportunities due to lack of activity. Sexuality i...

    Something is pulling me. My arms are not my arms, And this body is foreign.   It grasps and it pulls. It's dragging me one way, While hauling me the other.   I still reign over my mind; It'll never control me. But this body cannot take such brutality much longer. These dire...

    So my friend told me she believes that everything happens for a reason. I use to believe that too, just as I believed in the coming of the four seasons. But one day I learned that not everything happens for a reason but it can happen for a purpose, I'd contrived.   That notion was unstead...

    I was a girl once upon a time so long ago, But that time has long since passed. And I have since then learned to let go. Goodbye to the old with a hello to the ocean at vast. People have asked me how it was to be young, And I truthfully tell them that I don't have a clue in the world. ...

    There's no shame in the game, Because there's no blame for the fame. People expect a spectacular win, But sometimes all I have to offer is a self-conscious grin.   They placed me above one another, In a place I don't want to be. But I'm left here feeling entirely smothered. They'r...

    You see what you expected to see, And now a man is dead. I found him by the alley-side, Waiting to be fed.   He reached up to grasp my hand, Fragile, he did fall. I looked at Mother who looked wrongfully mad, And against her judgment, I made the call, To which my hand cradled hi...

    When I was a girl, The world was bigger than my hand, But smaller than my foot.   When I was a teen, The world was a mysterious platform that was welcoming and grand, But altogether soot.   When I was a woman, The world seemed smaller, Yet all the while too big to say I made ...

    I feel right, But everybody tells me that I'm wrong. I can't feel such a way, And still keep my feelings at bay.   It's ridiculous, they said. As they laid me down to bed. It's an outcry for help, they screeched. Before they had my tongue fully bleached.   What's outrageous i...

    I can't bring a pen to paper, Nor can I find cause to hate her, But there's this anger inside of me, That's begging to be released.   She sparks envy all over. People call her the "White Clover." They say she's as sweet as can be, But just wait till they see what I see.   I c...

    Don't compare me to that girl. Don't think we're one in the same. I maintain a clean name, While she gracelessly twirls her fake curls.   She sickens me, With all she shows for all to see. She toys with others hearts, As though their lives were the board, and their hearts, the dar...

    Can't focus. Can't gasp control. This life, It's moving down a rather deep hold.   I can see the bottom,  And it ends with yesterday, But in this sweeping autumn, I feel like I'll just fade away....

    He doesn't need me, oh no. No, he's got a new mistress now. And she goes by the name of Perfection.   She's victim to years of subjection; She's the picture of secretive dejection. Money and fame made her who she is, And all the glamour of her life attracted him to her.   I won...

    Let me run and let me hide, Let me say that I tried. Because everyone is laughing at me, And I really only want to be left be.   Place your hands above my grave, Etch in that I was brave. People will come to defame my name, But please put them all to shame.   I was all that a...

    I'll lie here and wait, A million years can go by, But I'll never ask you why.   I'll find comfort in the silent nights, And joy in your pearly whites. The day you come back to me, Is the day you will set me free....

    I want to be the giving hand, Give till there's none. I want to be by your side, Through this treacherous fight.   But I know that you've placed me on the outside, Away from the mess. But can't you see I'm tagging along for the ride, Or you'll surely drown in your handcrafted stre...

    And I'm not ready for this change, No, I'm not ready for the pain. You can say it's amazing, But everything is blazing.   This fire is burning me, Burning me from the inside. I bat at the flames, But I'm not winning this game....

    While I'm waiting at the bus stop, Listening to tunes, I can't help but see her, Crying, looking blue. I keep to myself, Don't want to intrude, But inside its all a guessing game, As to what to do. In my mind, Scenes play out like a film. There's a girl and a guy, ...

    I love you raw. Untainted, I sit in awe. I want you for myself. Only me, Yes I'm greedy. Your smile is my smile. Your heart is my heart. I won't let them have a piece, Cause you're mine, and mine at peace. Let me breathe you in Let me catch your breath. Let me match you...

    Today my cat is going to bed, In which all his days will be spent. It's a morose occasion to my family and all, But they say its for the best, So I will try to stay strong. Tears increase with the passing of time. He was my cat; An ear to those late night chats. He was more than a pet; ...

    I sit here amazed; I'm breathing! How my heart keeps on pumping is all but a mystery to me. They took away my life, Piece by piece until only the ventilator was functioning. When that plug hit the ground, This heart lost all reason to live. "She's dead, she's dead..."...
