    to forget myself; take my hand and lead me down where I do not have a past; where I do not have a future; where my name is lost in the silence and I do not see my body Remind me to forget myself, because she and I would like to be reacquainted...

    You shouldn’t tell me I’m special It will only put ideas in my head, and I’ll be so lost in the clouds I won’t see where I’m going You shouldn’t tell me I shine like a star, because those stars have not worked for millions of years at a time just to be compared to me You shou...

    We scribble words onto sometimes-flat surfaces like they’ll evaporate and be heard by no one We struggle for hours at a time to conjure two sentences that feel worthy to speak We ask our friends for feedback and the one negative comment they make rings in the dead of night And thus ...

    The memories you’ve gather over time, storing away like trinkets in the attic, have been exposed to the sun for too long and now are fading away They used to be so vibrant you could wrap yourself up in a memory and feel it sink into your bones Now the cloth is thin and tearing You can ...

    I’ve been told the sky’s the limit in reference to the idea that I can be anything I want But it’s on the ground that they want you to stay, and I’m tired of walking down sidewalks littered with crushed dreams When they sun sinks under the ground it pulls the night sky into place T...

    Dear sir, I think we’ve met before It was a time different than this one today, I’m sure of it You wore a suit and tie, one too small and the other too long, and your shiny new shoes had a scuff The grass had been dying when we met I remember how every time a gust of wind rolled by the...

    My mother does not wear perfume She applies make-up to her eyelids in the mornings before work while her hair sits on top of her head in curlers, but she does not wear perfume The bottles on her bathroom counter are not completely full, but they gather dust and sit unused They must have b...

    Words do not have a limit to how often they can be used And yet, overtime they can lose meaning The novelty wears off and the words that we speak, the ones that seem bold and new, become faded in our eyes When I was a child, choice words were locked away Once I unlocked them though, t...

    The waves crash with the roar of a dragon on the suspecting sand Foam roams the land and tries to reach every corner The water pulls at your feet, deceptively playful All the while it slinks around your ankles with an unbreakable grip You easily succumb to the sea’s wishes, moving wil...

    The shade of color I perceive myself to be is a pale and powdery lavender I am just as happy about this as I am about my name; I have no control, and yet I cannot imagine myself differently The color is not the most eye-catching and lacks the ability to hypnotize It is soft, promising com...

    It starts deep within your lungs caught along the lines of the flesh It is the jealousy that you feel when you look at the person before you This is the hatred you have begun to grow inside The sensation slowly begins to spread traveling in every direction It goes into your veins and laces y...

    Where do I look when people say "don't dwell on the past" when I only think of mistakes I've made and how they will always last? The present is bleak also with no color streaking my life I wish to cut through all of the gray but there’s not that sharp of a knife The...

    I wish you wouldn’t stare at me your body blue and cold because your eyes shine bright with death and a story to be told You muted your own voice so that you could sleep forever I knew I couldn’t save you with the time we spent together But the night before I could not sleep Instead...

    Your eyes are warm once they land on me, though I've been rooted to my spot for some moments now The arms that embrace me are not stiff, but they only hold on just long enough The conversation we used to have was heavy with substance Now the words are so light they float away wit...

    I am broken but I am bending Glued together by the love you’re sending I am cracked yet I grow strong in your arms where I belong I’m unraveled but you pick up my strings Weaving me into a beautiful thing I was hurt when you came and said “You frown; show me your smile ins...

    You emptied the picture-frames and took the treasures inside Now they are skeletons, hollow like me You pried our memories from my hands and tainted them with the fact that you were leaving You took pieces of my heart after you shattered it When I try to put it back together there are...

    Sometimes I think I’m a poet The dictionary defines this term as “Someone who writes poetry,” but I think it’s so much more than that A poet is someone who looks at the world through their eyes and writes what they see down because not everybody else looks through the same spectrum ...

    The cemetery is cold The stone crumbles at my feet Its entire presence sends my blood boiling I want to shout at the plots and roar at the church “Quit stealing my friends! They did not want you, but you never gave them the chance to speak!” I do not want to be the only one left, surr...

    His eyes are dull and cloudy though they used to shine with song But he continues living for the ones already gone He lives for his friend’s memories, not truly for himself He lives for all their photographs placed on the second shelf They look at him and smile wide, frozen in their t...

    The memory of sledding is what she carries as she trudges through the thick and dense flakes of snow that have compiled together to create one colossal mass. The cold has sunken in through her skin and is starting to lace her bones, wrapping around them like flames licking a newly placed log in t...

    “That’s just grand.” The people say in bittersweet fashion as they light cigarettes and take their seats for the funeral “Wednesday would be the best day to say goodbye to the life you’ve known, if you were forced to.” “On Wednesday there is no sense of joy that you wou...

    If I had a heart I could love you A heart, something so small that contains such love It is such an underestimated beauty, for a heart beats strongly, even though sometimes it is in the process of mending its shattered walls But where my heart should be there is a hole that I had never...
