    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 crying when you...

    I don’t believe in this “Do whatever you want, life is short,” bulls***.  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 ...

    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 ...

    The summer I turned seventeen I fell in love with the boy with swollen lips and freckles splayed across his nose. He set off firecrackers nightly within my heart, soft sparks spewing at the places where his fingers left tender marks on my lily-white skin. We shared fragments of sick, ...

    In Hebrew your name means light and I think both your mother and God knew that you would be the light in my eyes; You are the honey-sweet strength in my habitually quivering voice. Since our first night I have felt a faint tingling stirring in my fingertips; excitement that fosters my po...

    Boys like you simply do not love girls like me; girls with lifeless eyes and battered skin bruised by inward struggles seeping through pores soaked in self-hatred Boys like you will not love the girl whose tongue is tied in knots in your presence but girls like me will never stop loving yo...

    This is the sixth time I’ve tried writing about you and It’s only because I could never tell you. I can’t tell you the way my heart flutters at the thought of your perfectly shaped lips pressed to mine or the sleepy smile that plays upon them when I catch you drifting off, head in...

    My friend spent the night asleep on my floor and the next morning in the midst of pouring rain she told me that I said your name in my sleep. I can’t say that it came as a surprise My winter and spring was yours heavy snow falling on my heart weighing me down knowing You would never ...

    I’m sorry that he loves your body and not your soul; I’m sorry that in five years he will fall in love with me because I can quote his favorite books and he can’t resist the sweet-smelling lilac from my hair that clings to his pillow for dear life. He will tell me that I far outwei...
