    My beautifully frayed arc of destruction My hundred and eighty degrees of madness Do you wonder how I feel when I raise my hand? Do you wonder how I feel when I swing my fist? I feel blind Like I’m staring at the sun Two seconds too long I feel helpless Like I’m opening my eyes un...

    Sometimes I thought he saw me as his human punching bag. He didn’t beat me or anything, but his words cut every bit as deep as his hands. His words could claw me up and tear my insides to shreds. It was translucent torture, being with someone who cherished me one second, someone who could so viole...

    The night you kill yourself it is bitter cold. The ghost white moon hangs high in the sky like a fading ball of fire, and not a single shining star rests in the huge, empty sky. I stand there on the sidewalk in my soaked jeans and heavy gray sweatshirt, the blood in my veins turning to ice as I look...

    Lainie Park is the sort of old, run-down playground where its easy to get splinters because everything is still made of wood and where there are less children on the swings than middle schoolers smoking cigarettes by the sandbox. It is the kind of place that seems so gritty on the surface, like ...

    Flames from the fireplace leapt and jumped through the holes in the screen, a blinding fountain of color in a room of gray. I stood, mesmerized, eyes glazing over from the heavy thickness of the smoke. It seeped into my lungs and seemed to stop my heart. The boy stepped aside and my heart dropp...

    I am sitting here with my chin in my hands, tasting the salt of my own pathetic tears. Waiting for darkness to take me up, up, and away. I stare down at the water below, wetness brimming behind blue eyes. The cheesecake moon is reflected upon the rippling surface below, stars in the sky dusting t...

    I was the one who found her. The front door wasn’t locked. She and her mother had seldom, if ever, locked the door, so I had no reason to feel that icy chill of realization, no reason to feel as if a pair of eyes were watching me from the crack in the closet door. But even then I knew. We ...

    Winter, and the grass has frozen over. White snow falls like cotton at our feet. Hand in hand, we glide atop the hills, Feet piercing the snow like the silver blades of a sled. Spring, and the world has dusted sleep from its eyes. The violet flowers leave trails of silk, The perfume of a r...

    “Caitlin.” Her eyes are intensely blue, penetrating mine like they’re about to spill over. I would know, I guess. I’ve made her cry enough times to know. But she doesn’t cry. She stiffens her lip and stands up a little straighter, blinking back the trace of anything vulnerable left ...

    I really didn't see it coming. His hand, angry and rough and quick as lightning, connected with my jaw as he smacked me across the face. Hard. My neck snapped to the side, my chin pointed downward, and that's where I stayed for at least a full minute. I was afraid to move, afraid to breathe. Oh, ...

    'Till death do us part, You're so incredibly naive, Only two years into marriage, Mocked by screaming infidelity. Whispering betrayal, When he's with somebody else, A haunting lack of union, And communication's failed. His wife is waiting home in bed, Her heartbeat pounding in her head...

    Don't you know that when you make mistakes it's my heart that breaks? Your grip is so strong, so tight, so suffocating, that I'm drowning in you. Trying to break free, But these thoughts of you still swim in my head. Haunting me, Like tragedy, Like the colors, The tears, That you she...

    I've fallen obsessed with my sparkling angel, A heart of gold and a thin, silver halo. A smile reflected on his beautiful face, The curve of his lips, My saving grace. When we're apart time fails us both, Overwrought, Moves much too slow. And though we'll be together soon, The golde...

    Maybe we're driving too fast, But I don't want to slow down, Two hearts out on the interstate, Speeding we don't make a sound. Blonde hair whips against his face, Skin on fire, Fall from grace. Hands collide, Fingers touch, Close your eyes now, Feel the rush....

    Atop the sloping hill, We know it's much too late, Waiting as the changing tide determines our flailing fate. Clouds above separate, As angels go their separate ways, Here on Earth all is still, Grass like sea-green lace and twill. A butterfly, My outstretched hand, Your skin on mine, ...

    The piano plays softly, Whispering, grieving, Throwing condolences to the wind. Will I ever wake up from this? Hello, I am the one, The one keeping your head above water. Do you even see me? Do you hear my cries pierce the indigo sky? Wolves wait below my window, Yearning to devour me...
