    The smell of you sobers me up. Brings me crash-landing back to earth, back to everyday routines and a lawn that needs mowing. Pulls me up- plucks me like a weed and tried to plant a flower on its grave. I’m sorry to tell you it was a dandelion, you seem to be stuck in a loop, seem to repeat every...

    I’m stuck in a love affair with needles. They kiss my flesh sweetly, gently biting in an amorous nature. They fill my blood with hopes and dreams and build up a world of magic around me. Yet, I must be able to live without them. They cannot be my knight in shining armor, fighting off every dragon ...

    You drink your coffee in everything but a coffee mug. I find myself rising before the roasted smell of “wake-me-up” and earnestly sitting down at the table, awaiting your arrival of bed head and rubbed-red eyes. You drink your coffee in everything but a coffee mug. Taking shot glass of warm, ste...

    When I was younger, my grandfather would scoop me up into his lap, my round body conforming to his knees and elbows. The rocking chair moving gently- like a tide kissing the shoreline, sighing its age as I sat with my mouth gaped open in wonder. My grandfather spun dark stories of the north together...

    ou wanted to pick and prod me apart. poke a hole in my chest and find the very essence of childhood left stranded in the black crevice of lungs and muscles. Baby blue eyes with salty oceans flowing and ebbing against my eyelid shores. You wanted to scrape the scab off the healing wou...

    “you’re doing that quiet thing again.” she mutters. I try to push satellite signals to her, but my mind is an AM radio in an FM town. There is a silence between us that mutes the static. I wish I was brave enough to tell you; you’re the only one I would. Can’t you see my pali...

    The doctors told me I’m a broken machine. No amount of elbow grease or oil will help me run smoothly. I have too many gears, overproducing in the marrow of my pipes. I leak gas at the slightest prick! And dent at the gentlest nudge. Whoever told me “You’ll have a lifetime...

    My 13 year old self use to think restrooms were just for using the potty and woman [painting pretty false faces on themselves. But I soon learned that it’s a secret shrine. Place teenage girls enter to make themselves feel fine, when in fact I never do. I flee to the bathrooms stalls, fall to my k...

    If I should have a sister, let her be filled with wonder, pulling her from the wall and filling her with enough curiosity to kill the cat. Because I know her to be a dog person, with a dogmatic personality. Always offering both of her hands to the world, but I’ll take her hands and tattoo the worl...

    I’m sinking into your tar-filled lies and smothering deception. coughing up blood from the razors you shoved down my throat; whoever said words don’t hurt lied. because I have yours pinpricked on the tip of my tongue. I’m yanking on the fishing line you reeled me in with but it’s...

    Like time was frozen. And puddles were the most important thing on your mind. but no I can’t stand gatherings of water because they no longer jump at me and you no longer jump at them. and time is no longer frozen-- just the ice before me....

    If a tree falls in a forest, does it make a sound? I never really knew, until I fell myself. The loudest noise I heard was my mind yelling “how will you ever get back up?” So then I wondered, “how will the tree?”...

    Strange. The darkness unravels the nerves of a timid, fifteen year old girl. Her unruly honey hair is stuck to the side of her face and the heat of thirst itches and burns her throat like shoving a hot, white branding iron down it. Emersyn quietly slips out of the bed that isn't hers in the w...

    Overdressed red lips form foreign phrases and I turn my head away from “She’ll need special treatment” My mother nods in beat with my racing heart, tears soaking her sundried face. Her eyes are empty as she glances at me, no recognition of her baby girl. “six weeks will be her min...
