    I saw you on the street today, The single wings of my fluttering heart reached for yours, But when I did you walked away, The one sole thing my aching heart still adores. I have seen you before- In a different place, A different body With a different face- Your lascivious anonymity caressed ...

    Why do we long for Dracula’s fangs To kiss our necks and draw our blood With phallic sharpness and pierce our pains? Why do we yearn for Cupid’s dart To fly toward us and caress our chest With love-dripped pangs and puncture our hearts? Why does God’s angel from above Penetrate St....

    Patience is a virtue And man, I wish that weren’t true This week crawled on at the pace of dripping molasses I saw buildings erected and knocked down in all of my classes I took tallies in a notebook of every passing hour Without you my clock hands move with the sprouting of a flower Without...

    Blow me up like a balloon Just to watch me diffuse Like what’s the use? Dropped me empty on the ground with the string still attached My flimsy powerless rubber surface stomped and smashed By crowds fans and bystanders And friends and family members Seeing what I once was Full, bright, s...

    Ripped and forced from this world all too soon Like tearing off a scab revealing wound Days are dark without your gleaming smile Now your smirk resides above in sky With twinkling stars each toothy grin doth shine Your welc’ming arms are now the shapes of clouds Granting shadows, shedding al...

  • Poetry > Sonnet
    Sometimes the strength it takes to let you go O’erpowers the grip I need to still hold on, But here’s something I think you should know: My wreck, my shambles will be built upon And when I fall it’s on my own accord. I may be emptier than never been, And yes, it’s true, I may feel full...
  • Poetry > Sonnet
    The warm moon melts into the willowed morn And moaning, you arise from slumbered sleep. Crackled and bright, lightning from storm forlorn Begins to thunder as the sky-tears creep. Stumbling, you fall from atop your bed Into the dark and endless floor below And hit the ground like you’re a bl...

    It’s not that I haven’t heard it all before, It’s not that I don’t believe the lore About distance and different places and different times and different faces. It’s not that I can’t, It’s not that I pant And find myself out of breath when I think of yours. I do know why, I ...

    I stepped into a familiar river Hoping for stability It swept me with its current Legs already wet Giving out from under me I threw my watch in the pool Wishing for stoppage It was waterproof Hands swiftly moving Laughing at my folly I put a snowball in my fridge Yearning for standsti...

    I turn the keys of your hands To lock your fingers into place, Hoping they’ll stay there forever, Knowing they’ll go with a turn of a lever, Pulling apart like a piece of scotch tape. Without those warm golden nuggets my hand My arm flutters down, weak and worthless Heart unlocked, open f...

    Sticks and stones may break my bones But words can help alleviate the pain Sprawling o’er the page I can grumble and complain About all the terrible things that transpired that day Or celebrate and praise all the wonders Of a midafternoon in May When the leaves are green and the air is swif...

    It’s objective and unpredictable Something unfixable No rewind or undo or replay To take back the things from that day When we both sat on my couch Intertwined warm but cold and nervous Not like we’d ever been nor Should have been But we were there in that spot where we’d been before...

    Sweet smells Summer’s kiss Swing and a Miss Golden dirt Green-Apple grass Gentle hits and a free pass Just a second Jeweled squares Joint opponents in pairs Boxes loaded Bring the pitch Belief in every stitch Muscle and Brawn Meek and Slender Might this be the ender? Purge...

    Violet eyelids cover until the pomegranate eyes open on the Lavender skies Lilacs and mulberry pies. The purple world misses you. Not a day goes by That I don’t become a better man because of you. Your magenta smile seeps into my mind Strength becomes easy to find In my plum-shaped heart ...

    My grandpa smells not of cigar nor talks about the past as if life came and gone away, and fled him all too fast. Instead he tells us anecdotes from bouts of yesteryear, applies them to our future woes and morrow becomes clear. My grandpa smells not of cigar nor makes his life his lead,...

    Silence loud as a scream In the forest with no one to hear And yes it would seem That its been about a year Since weve touched Been together And much Has happened in our lives apart So why don’t we start Now And mend the rips The tears the tears And blend the pieces That fell apart ...

    You’re with one I’m with none You’re on the top of the pedestal and why is it so difficult to imagine us not together for life is like a feather its drifts and rifts and turns earn me a spot at the dinner table alone silence palpable feelable unreal and well I miss you but...
