    I'm lost in my thoughts, Trying just to find something, Poetic in nothingness....

    Tan lines and tattered plans, Gone with the winds, In hopes of a better day. Hot kisses from the sidewalk, To my bare feet. They make promises that, My the tennis courts are not far away. My shorts are colorful, My sunglasses transparent. My skirts be short, As my shirts are baggy. ...

    Laying in the shower, God is talking to me. Or maybe it is just the voices in my head; filling in the blanks. It doesn't matter. All of God's promises are washing over me. Sometimes I just don't know what to say. So I go through all the praise songs and prayers that I know. D...

    You are beautiful. It is tattooed on my memories, As you whisper it softly into my ear. You are beautiful. Forever hanging in the air; The words frozen in time, Waiting to be claimed as something that: I Want To Believe. You are beautiful; like the words on this page. Am I still beau...

    I will not change my writing style, To be in this magazine. For that seems a bit extreme. Because I noticed, the style of poems to make it on the cover, Will simply not let me be me. But I will be me; in all my artistic talent. If only you could see.. That someday I will be accepted...

    I have a team. I have a family. I have more than just a family. I have a tennis family. My road to self discovery began on coastal highways. We are a family, We win together; we lose together. We cry together, we sit up all night in hotels together. We talk about life, and ...

    I can't make out the words on the necklace in my hand. It is half of someone's heart. "Best friends forever." But it doesn't say that. The best guess I can make is it says something in Spanish. "Mejores amigos para siempre." But that's too lo...

    I went to two different churches. One last night; and one this morning. There are some things I do not understand. In the first church, People sang, sat, prayed, and ..Just listened. Imagine that. People laughed at his jokes and the pastor did not wear robes and drapery of whit...

    There is fog over the Brooklyn Bridge tonight. Listen and you can hear her breathing. She's afraid to see the smoke clearing. What realities of the day are nearing? There is a fog over my Brooklyn Bridge tonight. She trembles in terror. Earthquakes shake her to her structure b...

    Sometimes, there are more important things in the world than yourself. Not always; just sometimes. I have been reminded of this today. I'm sure I have learned this lesson before. I am sure I will continue to try and understand this concept for the rest of my days. There was a th...

    When I see the moon; I think of the millions of people looking up at it.. I stop and think that maybe your looking up at it just like me. I see it as a way that just for one moment we are one. For one moment we are connected. For one moment I am strong. But then again, I see everyt...

    No one ever says life is easy. Life is hard. But everyone is entitled to happiness, right? No one sugar coats it. They may try to make you feel like less of a person by saying, "Someone else has it worse." But you have every right. So, let's throw everyone in jail...

    My socks have holes in them, Nothing really seems to go together. Everything is awkward. My legs are too short for my body, And my heart is too empty to be heavy. The soles of my shoes are worn down. My shoes beg for mercy, And so does my soul. I'm just trying to find my...

    When I write, It moves in me. I feel what I write in everything I am. Sometimes, I will be crying. I will try and sort through my thoughts. And sometimes, I'm going mad. I can't scribble the words down fast enough. Sometimes I scare myself. I will read what I have p...

    I am wrapped up in my world of haze. Faded jeans, ripped up sweaters. Lean back and look at life; unfolding. iPod blasting, eyes wandering. Is this high school's version of hazing? Everything I see, it is going too slow. So why do I complain when life seems to be going by too ...

    Run threw your mind. Try to find something familiar, Someone you used to know. Search your heart. Find what is real. Because sometimes I really don't know how to feel. My life is fair game. I'm biding my time, in open water. My story is out there for the world, F...

    I walked along the beach today. I picked up shells; whole sand dollars. I looked at them and threw them back into the ocean. Because if I were to meet my death in a foreign place, I would want to be returned home; to where I belonged. I ran along the beach today. Nothing changed but the ...

    English. Spanish. It's all the same. Either way we have a little baby. ..A little baby without a name. What would it be like? You know, to be a teenage mom? People stare at things that are different; unaccepted. Gays, Lesbians, Blacks with a white. No one understands. I'll c...

    What if I live in a world? A world where it doesn't get better? But I have you. If I had to pick a best friend, I'd say it was you. Because you always seem to be the first person to come to mind. I know I mess up. I messed up with you. But there you are... I don't r...

    Searching.. Searching for a soul. To a stranger, everything looks the same. The faces just blend with the pavement. Town after town, same story. A mirage; gone with the wind. Dust and faded weeds cover the ground; This is all to alike to my heart. This place is a place that seems ...

    It seems like it was just yesterday. That New Mexico desert was so far away. That was a rough summer, But she made it OK. Invader Zim and Xbox. Boxer shorts and kisses. I loved you. You took me in; under your wing. There was so much to learn. It was nice knowing that there would ...

    Life goes down the drain.. Life seems like Hell... If only for a moment.. But maybe... Maybe... Life will go on. How do you face the day when everything around you makes your heart ache? Kmart makes me thing of you. Candy isles make me think of you. My friends make me think of you. ...

    So.. Unsure. If I could pick one word to describe me at this moment... That is what it is. Unsure. Grey is my favorite color. I just get so lost in it. Have I ever told you I wanted to become a model? Sorry I'm only 5'6". I would be a glamor model. You know, the one...

    I'm trying my hardest... But the hardest part is.. I can't see you. This world's a b****. I don't even get to just see you walking by just once more... People say I'm lucky I don't have to deal with him anymore. But, our relationship wasn't about, "d...

    You have three seconds, So you better make an impression. I'm just laughing at my life. While I sit on the bleachers; In between innings. The sunlight falls on my face, Just like a million baby kisses. I have just enough strength left to pick up a knife, I am too weak to reach f...
