    If I could reach the sky I would gather the teardrops of the heavens And string them into a necklace of pure light. Shimmering far above, their luminescence inspires, But nestled between your collarbones In that constellation of freckles, They would hold the embers of passion, Fiery sparks ba...

    In my head, I built a room, in which I kept the truths I could not speak. In this room, sometimes, I spoke of all the things that had been building up for years: the faults with our government, and how we had sat on the sidelines of our own country for too long. I spoke of how the time to act was...

    Ever since I was a little kid, flight has always mesmerized me. It started with my obsession with butterflies when I was in early elementary school. I was fascinated by these elaborate yet delicate creatures that so beautifully and effortlessly bent the air to their will. My love of flying beings qu...

    He is attached to you like your shadow, But your shadow vanishes into the dusk, And he is still there. His eyes are arctic pits of blue, But the wintery lands hold beauty and life, And no beauty is reflected by those empty eyes. His smirk shatters the air like a lightning bolt, But a thunders...

    Love is the fluttering bird of my heart. Love is restless nights of unspoken dreams. Love is the warmth in the clasp of our hands. Love is the spark in your eyes igniting my fire. Love is the way you build up what has been torn down. Love is the acceptance that you will always be by my side. ...

    Racism And sexism And homophobia And transphobia. Discrimination based on ‘attractiveness’ And apparel And weight And religion And natural origin And ‘disabilities’ And age And intellectual capacities And speech And outward behavior And so many other slanders and preju...

    You were the passage of shooting stars Across my dismal night, Sprinkling the silvery dust of hope Beneath my dreaming head, Granting me a brief respite from reality. I followed your glimmering, sinuous path As far as my earthly eyes could see, But you flew out of reach, Extinguishing the ...

    I am invisible to your eyes, But my essence flits all around you, Like the twinkling of a fickle star. I crescendo in your ears, But no vibrating waves part my lips. I am everything, Consisting of all you are and all you’re not, Yet I am nothing, Except for what your musing makes me to be...

    The relief and escape of sleep Evade me, Like a wary bird Flying higher than the range Of a hunter’s bow. I sit enveloped in my thoughts, With only the moon and stars For company. Silent and ponderous, I wonder about things Long gone and faded, And recall memories As sharp as shard...

    Smiling through my teeth; Trembling like a leaf. My heart begins to pound, And I cannot hear a sound But the frantic beating of a heart That has been torn apart And knows it is about to die, But cannot force itself to cry; For if it shed a tear, It would not be able to bear The harsh reali...

    I’m sorry, But you’re wrong! I’m not being disrespectful. I’m just stating the facts. Telling you the truth… Or at least trying to. It seems like your ears Are filled with wool, Plugged against my words. You don’t want to hear them, So you don’t, And the moment passes. I ...

    Sleep Is all insomniacs crave. Love Is what the lonely require. Food Occupies an anorexic’s mind. Hope Is what the broken desire. But if the insomniacs can’t get sleep, And the lonely are never loved, And the anorexics die hungry, And the broken are too shattered to hope, What the...

    There she sits, Tense and grimacing, Wishing she could turn invisible, Or become impervious to the pain and sorrow in her life She turns her face away from the belligerence That surrounds her, closing in from all sides. She tries to brush it off, Like it is just an annoying buzz in the back...

    Bright and Dark; Trying to live in harmony. Yin and Yang; A distant, nostalgic memory. Ebony and Ivory; A hauntingly beautiful melody. Day and Night; Beautiful in their coldness and warmth alike. Light and Shadow; The places where one can hide. Black and White; And all the shades of Gray....

    You are Rosaline. You are the definition of cast aside; ‘gotten rid of’. You are the one to whom ‘Love and be loved’ does not apply. You are the second choice. You are the erased mistake. You are the forgotten first love. You are the melody in the back of one’s mind. You are the for...

    A shroud of ghostly light Sunders the once dark night, Shining on a dismal form, On one who has done much harm To the body that his soul now leaves; A life that has now come to cease. The moon casts subtle beams of grey, Keeping the dark of night at bay, And illuminating a cold, limp hand...

    Our world is drowning in sorrow. It is wrong to believe that We have something to live for. It is evident that Nothing matters anymore. It is wrong to believe that Something exists in this world besides pain and grief. I know We can’t rely on anybody else, but ourselves. It is a lie th...

    We all reside in pain, Tread in fake happiness; Only to shield us From our screaming anguish. Those who take their sorrow,pain, And misery Out on others; Those are the ones Who are truly alone....

    The walls seem to close in, Sending waves of claustrophobia through me, Tumbling over me Like the foamy wrath of the sea, Lights as bright as the flaming sun Strike and blind me, Making the walls tower over me, As I shrink into myself, Fighting wave after wave Of shuddering darkness That t...

    A knife grating against my heart, Shredding fragments of me, Tearing my life apart, And destroying who I used to be. The feeling that everything’s wrong, And that my hope has been drowned in tears, Feeling so weak, not strong, Succumbing to all of my fears. Not seeing, Like gauze has been...

    The many colored hand of music Grasps my heart, Slowing its frenzied beat Until we are one, Completely in sync. Bands of metallic gold and silver Interlaced with clandescent Violets and blacks, Streak across its rough crystalline edges, As reflective as a many sided mirror. It bares m...

    I cannot speak the words You need to hear, For what are gourds Full of nothingness going to do, but leer? Why should I speak a lie, When we both know it’s not the truth? Your trust should not have to die, Like mine did in its youth. Walk away, Don’t linger where its blue. If you stay,...

    You look but do not see, You hear, but do not listen, Your gaze passes over me, Almost like I’m hidden. I try to make you notice, And see my tears and pain, But you cannot see the darkness That keeps me in the rain. I could shove it in your face, Right before your eyes, But you stil...
