    Am I the apple being held by you, or the seeds within your core? Am I what builds your sturdy roots, or the hands of the man plucking fruit?...

    Reach into your pocket, grab your pen, and write down this girl’s number into your black book so you may run away with her virginity a few nights later. Tell yourself that she is the one, and that you must get her number so you can tell all of your friends in vain. Force her delicate mind...

    My heart feels like a cancerous lung— flooded with tar and festering with abuse, oozing the pain of rejection into my bloodstream. My arms feel like broken legs— torn muscles burning with lactic acid residue, my sense of touch demolished. My spine hangs like a falling tree— branches...

    Remember back when we were kids, when we would build forts and miniature sanctuaries from the pillows, blankets, and chairs lying around the house, sneaking past our parent’s peripherals, indulging in pure imagination and freedom? Remember back when we would hide out in our rooms for hours...

    I think it’s ironic how that every time we come to make contact, embrace, or scratch the surface of a petty, parched conversation that we have had countless times over the past ten years of our lives to fill in the silence that haunts us, that though our outlooks may change, attitudes m...

    My heart is for sale at your auction, my mind already sold, and my body awaiting a price tag. Parts of me sit in different spots, lost and aimless in your pile of used junk; the aftertaste you try to expel from your conscience. I've sat long enough, its time to stand up against h...

    Saying all you need with your eyes, I know I have failed you once again. Your blank expression is the worst thing that you can do or say to me. That condescending, cold stare wears me down; freezes my insides solid. The second you look away I will sprint, not with my feet, but my ...

    If I could peel at your insides like a surgeon, treat your organs with delicate precession, poke at your brain with sharp needles, or cusp your heart with plastic gloves, would I be your friend? How long would it take for me to cut your skin, not with a knife, but with my sincerity? How ...

    The value of my heart to your lies is worth more than you'll ever know. Your sly grins and blind ignorance worth less than what you once meant to me. Now, my love, we drift; through the outcomes of unpaid taxes and heartbreak....

    How is it that you with just a cold gaze can rust my inner clockwork? How is it that you with just a pair of chilling eyes can shake my world? How come each time you look at me I quake in fear, becoming your prey?...

    Fireflies lie in my psyche; she says she loves me, leans in and clutches my heart with the fiery grip of intimacy. We kiss, leaving me in a world of haze, fogging my crystal sense of direction. Flames combust internally; she says she needs me, stares down into my soul and reaches for my af...

    Their colorful wings flap with the wind in tune with nature, their subtle movements attract me towards them; engulfed in the serene music. So vibrant, so small they fly across my garden, soaring freely through the open air. Their careful designs sparkle with the sun; harmonize, and shimme...

    You would not believe all of the childish banter, arrogance, and bluster streaming down these school hallways everyday like wound tumbleweed in the desert of no awareness, or is it just me? It seems as if the many pulses of the school’s ready-made body are now just the cell phones ri...
