    Before he left I started numbering the days we had together, but while I  was counting down I was also adding up the things I would miss the most like pedal-to-the-floor adrenaline rushes, the way his words slipped softly through his lips when he indulged me in conversations a...

    he was constantly giving me tiny trinkets from his pockets, like a golf tee or a dime and thus describes our love. it was a wild passion composed of the small things that no one else saw like a miniscule smile or a subtle laugh. there were no great fireworks or bells ringing, b...

    You never quite understood my passion for the universe Brushing off my musings of the vastness of the moon and the light of the stars as mere childlike intrigue Until one night I held your hand and said, "You know how much I love the moon? Well I love you even more." You shook yo...

    A butterfly's wings can flutter up to 700  times per minute and it sounds just like my heart beating at  a million miles an hour whenever you're around   I think when we met you placed a caterpillar in my chest because it took months for this exhilaration to grow; Slowly, th...

    I don’t believe in astrology but I’ve started doing many things unusual for me like writing poems on the backs of pages and sharing the  spaces between my fingers with boys most undeserving, so it came as no surprise when suddenly I was checking the stars for ...

    my thoughts have started to tangle like a spider web and I can no longer follow its woven strands; they all lead back to You.   glass lies break and the shards cut my fingers and spill blood like messy, red truth. months flew by and with each breath I exhaled a denial of lov...

    There's something absolutely thrilling about chasing the worst possible thing to want.   He is the boy your mother warned  you about and every logical space in your brain echoes with warning screams but your fingertips  tingle with every touch and you become addicted to inhali...

    Whatever it is that you're looking for, I'm not it. I am a flower crown made of black roses and thorns and I am  pieced together entirely by shreds and tears and messy stitches And most days I long to drown in my sorrows and many times I have tried to ask You fix me and every ti...

    I fear now that my heart is empty; my ink has run out. There are only so many ways to write of how you do not love me: the deep echo of loneliness reverberating within my brittle bones,  the ice-cold frost that has taken residence in my fingertips and the way your tongue starts ...

    I found myself distracted tonight trying to trace back to the beginning of us but it seems my memory does not serve me well because one minute we relied on small talk and English homework to bring us together and the next you were dragging me into the library where I began cryin...

    I don’t believe in this “Do whatever you want, life is short” bull. Your body is a temple with your brain as the ruler and your heart as the manipulable right-hand man. Kingdom and kingdom will try to invade and your heart will whisper cunning words to the king...

    You turned me inside out and now I’ve lost myself because I am no longer a naïve looking white blossom laced with poison - I blend in, unidentifiable among the dozens of flowers longing for water.   The innocent words that slid from my mouth have vanished and every day I wake scre...

    You tell me that it wasn’t love but I know that nothing else hurts like this because I freeze every time your favorite song spills from the speakers of my car and I can’t go anywhere without seeing you because that t-shirt would be something you’d wear and maybe I should buy you tho...

    I found you at the bottom of a bottle of whiskey and I promised myself long ago that it would never come to this But with each drop that burns down my throat I feel the faint touch of your hand grow stronger and the soft edges of your voice grow more defined as my vision gets hazy. Many peo...

    I’ve started lighting fires since you’ve been gone and the click of a light has become my comfort noise. Headlines go up in smoke and hay bales burn to the ground but with each spark I imagine the flames licking my fingers, singeing my hair, I long to be overtaken by the heat the way...

    I used to believe the lie that women are more manipulative than men with our clever minds, sweet tongues and alluring bodies but there is something disgustingly cunning about faking love. You bought my heart with acts of sincerity and affectionate words then placed me back on the shelf....

    I told you you’d have to fight for me because I am like an aged dandelion, easily swayed and swept away but I guess you didn’t hear me because I’m slipping through your fingers like tiny grains of sand And that’s all I am -- I am the sand that graces your vast ocean and I am insignif...

    I’m losing you and I know because I can feel the echo of your silence in the cavity of my bones and your presence is no longer sweet but a heaviness that weighs down on my shoulders and seeps into my skin. The lavender breath that once filled your lungs now smells like rain-- the kind th...

    You captured my heart nearly a year ago and taught my twisted and tormented soul how to craft my words into something beautiful. You fell in love with her and she was extraordinary and I died every time our eyes met- I proceeded to push You away. Now, my love, you are nearly mine once...

    I have a tendency to leave things unfinished- movies get shut off halfway through and partial poem lay scattered across the floor. Perhaps that’s why I pushed you away; The prospect of forever with you was far too much for me to bear....

    I am not enough for you because Your heart is a bottomless pit, lusting greedily after love. In your eyes, my love merely reaches the brim of a thimble while hers overflows the most dazzling cup and that you cannot resist. You seem to think I am not enough and I suppose under pressure I ...

    When I’m around you volcanoes erupt beneath the apples of my cheeks and tsunamis hit the beaches of the waterlines of my all-too-unsuspecting eyes. Earthquakes tremble in my fingers and I suppose this love is a natural disaster in its own way. You are toxic and I am frag...

    There’s a poem hidden deep within my soul that I feel I have written before simply because it is a set of words that I live. I am a walking contradiction. I am independent and I do not need your help but I cannot help but love you opening doors and taking my hand and knowing you will a...

    Things don’t speak to me anymore- they scream until my lungs fill up with truth and words cram themselves into my heart. You whispered words to me that My naïve heart had merely dreamed of; songs that I had memorized when I was three took on a new, precious meaning that moment You cam...

    This morning I stood outside and felt the sunlight falling across my back and I realized that I am alive. I walked around hollow for months until my heart reminded my tormented heart that I could write you poem after poem after poem and you would still never love me. We all have fatal ...
