    Gold, magenta, burgundy, sepia, burnt orange, bronze, crimson, changing, falling, living, dying innumerable leaves, set on a silvery backdrop. It's all so painfully beautiful, I have to close my eyes to keep my tears from spilling over and drowning me. I can barely contain the beauty inside...

    She could see, There in his eyes, The kind of deep longing, Raw desire, That every girl hoped she would find someday, In the eyes of a knight. She stared at him, The night closed in, The dark enveloped them, But it did not seem binding, Cramped, Suffocating, It felt like free, As ski...

    His hands explore her body, like Lewis and Clark, mapping out every contour and curve, until he knows them by heart. She listens to his heartbeat speed up, or the world slow down. She closes her eyes and colors pop behind her eyelids, and music plays in her ears, a symphony that beats Beethoven....

    A mother is a face full of worry lines on her brow, and smile lines around her mouth. They tell a story like the lines I write that make my mother so proud. If you catch her staring, her forehead creased, don’t be alarmed, It’s just her caring, Wondering how, The time has passed so quickl...

    Please me, Tease me, It won’t daze me. Squeeze me, Leave me, It won’t pain me. Need me, Bleed me, It won’t change me. Dear me, Fear me, It won’t tame me. Want me, Haunt me, It won’t phase me....

    I have poems tucked away in notebooks, Folded up and shoved into abandoned pockets, Scribbled on the palm of my hand, and the margins of my homework, Poems that might make you laugh, And others that could make you cry, Poems that will make you reconsider everything you thought about me. I ...

    He said, “I’d make you mine— if you weren’t impossible.” He’s got me feelin’ Like I’m unstoppable. He tells me I’m beautiful, amazing, fantastic, wonderful, out of the blue… and all I can think to say back is “… Thank you.” I’ve broken his ...

    Pen to paper, Writing my heart out, The ink bleeding through the page, Like the blood from my aching heart, My breaking heart, You fixed my heart, And hey, I hate your heart. You ate my heart, Tore it apart, And left a scar. This poem makes no sense, But neither do you, And neither do ...

    We sit and listen, quiet now, to the hush and murmur of water on rocks, and the sweet secret whisper of a kiss. We lie and feel, be still now, to the dance and shimmy of sunshine on our skin, and gentle touch of wandering hands. We stay and watch, look now, the trees bow and wave to greet ...

    Relief runs deep in my bones, washes over my soul, as my words flow, and I can feel the weight of the world run off my shoulders. I finally let you know that your place in my life has been nothing but painful. That your role as my father has destroyed me, sent me down a path of addiction and failu...

    Through December’s haze, I find it hard to see your face, But I know your sad. These winter months bring you down, don’t they? Twelve weeks out of the year, you can’t feel my touch. But don’t worry, child. I’ll be back soon enough. Come March, I’ll come march right back into your ...

    Blank walls, Blank stares, Blank pages. Seven hours a day, Crammed into a desk, Staring at a whiteboard, Crammed with words, Searching through your backpack, Crammed with homework. Cramming for time. Procrastination. Stress. Exhaustion. Boredom. Too much to handle, Not enough time. T...

    When Life just sucks every ounce of hope I have left, you come and blow sweet nothings on my neck. You’re refreshing like water on an august day. You make me see life in a million new ways. I long for you and your warmth on my skin. Your touch heals, fights pain like medicine. I need you, ...

    I will always see her in the sunshine. Hot, bright, glowing rays melting her chocolate eyes, the sugary sweetness dripping into her smile, and I think I’d like to taste it, So I kiss the side of her mouth. I will always see her, with her knock-off Converse hitting the asphalt, and her anti-ma...

    We go together like peanut butter and jelly. I love you as much as Barbie loves Kelly. Each of us is a half, and together we’re whole. Complete opposites, it’s just how we roll. You complete me and I complete you. Like a math equation: 1+1=2. I know it’s cliché, but we’re best friends...

    How can one resist the soft pink lips, smooth skin, gentle touch of a girl? How can one not stare when she smiles and the room brightens up around her? How can one help but look up when a giggle escapes her lips and floats like bubbles to the ceiling? It’s no wonder boys trip over themselves an...

    He's smiling that hundred watt smile, a million miles wide. Feeling high, his girl by his side. It begs the question why, he hurts so bad inside, and she's just trynna find some reasons to get by. Life hurts. Love hurts worse. And they've got so much love they're about t...

    Stop. Rewind. Little girl no older than nine. Flower in her hand, hair in her eyes, leaving petals in her wake. "He loves me, he loves me not," a silly little girl's game. Now present time, sixteen years old and falling in love, with a boy of eighteen. He's shown her...

    When I look into your eyes, I see a memory waiting to happen, a future as clear as my past, And I never want to look away. When our fingers are intertwined, like two pieces of a puzzle, I feel a strong hand that will miraculously complete every task I need from wiping away a fallen tear to changin...

    In 16 years will you remember how I took care of you? How I helped Mom and Dad to raise you? Will you remember how we screamed and fought and came to blows, and then how we made up, by some unspoken rule, some unsaid force that told us we couldn’t stay angry… Will you remember how you played...

    Little Bird, sing me a song. The days are dark, and the nights are long. Little bird, hum a lullaby. Wipe my tears and calm my cry. Little bird, whistle a tune. My only friends are you and the moon. Little bird, make a sound. My neck is tied and my feet are bound. Little bird, play a symphon...

    Once upon a time there were two girls. One was standoffish, the other outgoing. One rude, the other sweet. One holds grudges, the other forgets. One knows what she wants to do with her life, the other can never make up her mind. One struggles in school but is determined to pass, the other is sm...

    You looked at me, with your big brown eyes, and told me that my own are beautiful. That was the day I took a step over the edge and started falling. Will you catch me? I haven't hit the ground yet, and I hope I never will, because, this feels like flying, so join me? You promised you&...

    I said I'd write you a poem, so I guess I'll give it a shot. It's just hard to write through these tears, getting caught, In my throat like all the words that went unsaid, just another pound to add to the load, weighing me down like lead, As i tread through the mud in this storm, ...
