    This wave of tiredness crashes in to me as fast as the caffeine drains from my veins. This blue blanket sea drowns me in sleep, consumes my thoughts, erases the aching in my feet. White pillow lifeboats keep me afloat through the bad dreams. My night life is merely a taste of what you would call &qu...

    Espresso-colored hair Vanilla-Hazelnut skin White Chocolate eyes There you are again You're careless In the best way possible Always smiling Confident Yet, thoughtful But I don't know you And likely never will I don't know your name Where you're from Or if you�...

    There's a pile of bones in my backyard. I dug through the closest in my heart. Hiding got me nowhere. I'm coming clean but I'm so scared. She never saw me for what I was worth. Blankets of snow, cover the Earth. As time moves on so do I. Love can't erase the pain of a do...

    Line by line This ink spills My heart poured out From sparrow-feather quills Word upon word Anger is loosed Forgiveness is found Before neck meets noose Mistakes past are simply gone No longer, I, the Devil's pawn No longer my days on Earth, though, For I sit, still, within D...

    Red roses! Red roses! Dancing Daffodil knows it. Knows she is below them. Childish, from blossom, to stem. Red roses! Red roses! Taunting Tulip shows it. Shows she is below them. Foolish, from blossom, to stem. Red roses! Red Roses! Opulent Orchid ignores it. Ignores she is below them....

    In his hollow fern, nests the owl: An innocent face with a permanent scowl. Fearful of dawn, and cunning by dusk, A wise screech whom none would trust! Patiently, in his hollow, waits the owl....

    My desk is the foundation. My pen is the support. An open mind relieves frustration. An open heart is a book. His words are emotion wrapped in ink. His promise is a façade. Like a lie that seeps through the teeth. Like the final seconds of day. Her eyes are a warm embrace. Her voice i...

    Full in my chest, are the flies that butter. Flies that flutter and flies that stutter. Beautiful maggots aloft goldenrod wings, Make a scrumptious lunch for the ones who sing. The singing ones whose friends are bees. Bees that sting and bees that tease. A lesson learned of selfish desire, ...

    Your love swept me out to sea, and pulled me under the waves. I try to escape, but sink from all these binding weights. I’m drowning in the ocean called Lust, and I can no longer see the sun. I’m too far under; too far gone. Why can’t you see that I never loved you all along? Let me go!...

    Andy's eyes were glued to the ant mound. He carefully placed four Black Cats into the domed surface of colony’s delicate home. A few scouts crawled out to investigate the boy’s intrusive invasion of privacy. Andy forced a smile to the other two boys, who were cheering him on while George, a...

    Imagine life is like the face of a cliff. The top is hidden above the clouds, and even though it is nowhere in sight, you are certain it exists. You are climbing this cliff, while tethered to a safety rope that extends skyward into the atmosphere. You pause to look around and notice that there are o...

    I will not repeat my past— I wrote that long ago, my guardian angel then peering into sky; Accepting my commitment with a confirming reply. At last, I myself peered into Heaven’s gates, Seeing not God, but you, Accompanied by angels in your wake. I, previously burdened by the sicknesses ...

    A girl trapped in this broken world Trying to fit into someone else’s mold And when the weight of defeat finally takes its toll I hope that onto me you will hold When you feel that you have lost your way And you can’t bear to see another day When you’re all alone with nothing to say J...

    The most extravagant flower in all of creation; Abandoned, unseen, in a mire of thorns and weeds. And hopelessness abounds in every corner. All around; despair. Eternities of tangled vines have choked the life, The sweet, beautiful life, from my dearest love. Enraged, heart-broken; ripped in...

    You are the sweetest flower; A blossom of joy in my life. All the beauty in this world can’t compare When I gaze into those green eyes. You fill my heart with laughter; Brighten up my day. Of all the things I’m wanting, You’re the only one I really want to stay. The feeling is mutu...

    Spring The ancient oak: lavender buds against a Kansas-blue sky. The sheltering shrub: an abode for the sparrows and kites. The early morning rise: red-orange strokes of sun. The welcoming breeze: a hint of storms to come. Summer The unforgiving heat; relentless waves of Summer’s embrace. ...

    Tell me, Tell me what you live for. Is it worth your every breath? Of this unhappy life you so cleverly disguise, Is nothing found but death? Though spring brought with it the waters of life, The green has washed away, and all that remains is bone-dry. In a heartless, winter desert you have a...

    I want out. I want out of this box you have put me in. I want in. I want to be in your life again. I want you. I want you to fall back in love with Me. I want these things, But you’re too afraid too see. You want change, Yet don’t make an effort to. You want freedom; The feeling y...

    Shadows are where the darkness lives; Untold secrets and lies. But there is a reason for this: The shadows hide from the light. Of the all-revealing Truth, The shadows are afraid. That their darkness be discovered, And made clear; the dark stains. Stains of past events and memories, A scar,...
