    I always liked the living room couch. Making mud houses in the springtime, for drowned worms. Gray eyes And a low voice that likes to tell ghost stories, when it should be asleep. But then, So should I. What’s Seattle like? I hear it rains a lot, but it doesn’t seem like the t...

    Most people either love or hate the entity that is the Disney Princesses. Obviously the latter group have a variety of reasons for their dislike of the franchise, ranging from their personality to physical appearance, but I've narrowed it down to the top five -- and really? Is this collective h...

    I’m with my books again. My refuge from reality, My great horizon in the sea Of bitter anonymity. Today, I’ll make them see. When ye olde Grim Reaper takes me Pray tell: who will come to see -- my ashes, when I go down in fire and ice And take my enemy down with me Who will stand befo...

    So there I was, a potato gun in one hand and a couple of Nerf darts -- the kind that stick to your ceiling and nothing else -- in the other, staring over a massive sea of relatives who I didn’t want here in the first place. It wasn’t as if I despised every family reunion I had ever been force...

    Are we dying? the voice in my head asked me softly, through bouts of searing pain. I told it to shut up. Not out of temper, but because I already knew the answer. The Oil Man apparently did too, because he lowered the gun whose bullet had just pierced my chest and turned his face from mine. ...

    Is this the end my friend, my friend The trees alight The smoke on high For dragon fire is in the sky; The king has lost his final cry; The heir may fight, the heir may die Is this the end, my love? Tis not the end, my friend, my friend True darkness is not fell tonight And through the br...

    Do you see the hanging noose Limp around my neck? Already broken from the weight Of troubles on my mind? Do you hear the silence sing A mournful funeral tune? The noose shrinks The rope goes taut My feet are loose Above the barren earth Yet the noose does not choke For all that ...

    Because I’m crazy, and I don’t care who cares Because I’m tired, and I don’t want to think Because in my head I don’t live here Because the people I make up Make me up And the stories I tell Tell my story Because I see the adventures We embark on in our minds And the fantastical c...

    There was a time When I could sit motionless In front of this stupid piece of paper And my mind would wander the globe Feet pattering Pencil scratching The ideas flowing like rivers During spring run-off Tumbling over sun-bleached earth Trampled by generations of passer-by The sunlight woul...

    The world is not a pencil sketch And I am not its artist Reality is not a stage And I am not its actress There are no hands to pass it down Nor paper to preserve it I live in tales of fantasy With no desire to befriend it Reality is not a waltz And I am not its dancer The world is just a c...

    I met you at the bookstore You were flipping through pages Encompassed in a jumble of words All mashed together in Times New Roman font Your blue eyes were warm and kind And it was kindness that I so needed I saw the words spill from your lips As you said “hello” in Times New Roman font...

    I am the man Mangled and hungry On the streets of Los Angeles I am the hand Of the rising wave That gathers on crowded beaches I am the spaceship That you are all afraid of Even though you shouldn’t be I am the missile That strikes at dawn Calling for revenge on another I am th...

    Ask us, friend. Just who are we to whisper in your ears and cast ideas like lifelines into your head? Who are we to clamp our teeth onto the tip of your pencil and force its gleaming graphite to stir on the page? Well, we are your characters. We were born from your thoughts and raised like your chil...

    The full moon reflects in every puddle that splashes around my ankles as I stride into the twenty-four hour coffee shop, my angular face hardened into an unreadable grimace. “Irene,” the young man behind the counter greets me. “Your order’s on the counter.” “Thanks, Al.” I dip my he...

    The sun turns gold the morning mountain mist That hangs above the pond in silent peace The dragonflies each other seem to miss Each wing beat of the whole is just one piece Approach the lazy moose from waking pines His shadow dark upon the morning pink He strolls the trek, the steady downward ...

    The rain fell like ice in the biting wind, tossing her hair like a pale blonde curtain across her face, temporarily shielding her eyes from view. Eeach minute she was illuminated in a flash of lightning that tore the sky in two, and, although it surrounded her like a cage, did not strike her directl...

    Like glass in the sea Tarns in early morning hours When dawn mist rises Wisps of smokey gray Ashes of a thousand years So it seems to me Worn and wise and well Words written across your face Expressive yet closed Hidden to others I decipher your labyrinth I read your lyrics You s...
