    The world burns in a blaze of colors. Crimson and orange and gold Flames engulfing the trees, Tongues of fire licking the sky. Flaming leaves carried away with a breeze And blown out like candles caught In a burst of wind. Where does fire go When it dies and leaves nothing behind? Ashen ...

    A velvet blanket Wrapping fluidly around Your body, with Coiling tendrils reaching For the extremes Of your limbs, Deftly weaving in And out of Your fingers, toes, Weaving between your Arms and legs, Soft as silk And porcelain smooth, Milky white, protecting Your vitals and Encasing y...

    Upon the walls dance the shadows of night. Creatures of darkness waltzing in the way, They fade away with new dawn’s breaking light. They do not speak, but when they’ve given fright, They frighten more, and now they’re here to stay. Upon the walls dance the shadows of night. I summon...

    I’m tired tonight; I want to sleep. I’ll dream of white willows that weep And ships that sail my soul to deep Seas that sigh and sing and sweep Away my woes—my troubles, too. These dreams will carry me to you And we will sail to waters blue, Where we can bid Awake adieu And where we ca...

    When I sit in my bedroom and look out my window, I see my neighbors’ houses. I see the grey, faded road and my looping driveway. I see the garden, overgrown and neglected. I see three trees: two crepe myrtles and one pink magnolia. If they are home, I see my neighbors’ cars parked outside. T...

    How do I love thee? Secretly, silent. I press kissed fingertips into your palms And trace my love into your sleeping chest. I whisper words against your collarbone And hope you feel, but do not hear, my love. This aching, unspoken devotion moves Through my body, races in my heart, speeds To m...

    No particular place. An empty section of space. Alone in the universe? We’ve decided to find out. We intended to love, To break the silence. We didn’t consider our civilization. No way of knowing before. Aliens contain earth. All over the world There’s something worse. Madness r...

    Hatred, hot and blinding, Even as our blood is forever binding. You turned to her with unthinking lust. I cannot trust, And still I must appear to love you. Did I appear in your heart, in your mind, As you silently loved her more? What am I here for? Seventeen years discarded, destro...

    Don’t release. Tighten your grip and Hold on. You are too fragile and The Fall is far. Don’t follow the others. They waited. They were weakened By time, by change. They waited Through spring, through summer. Growing skeletal, brittle. Just a brush could break Their bodies. So they ...

    Let us walk together, Hand in hand, silent, And let no words Pass between us except For those words which Cannot be heard by Anyone but us. Let Those words be unspoken But not unknown, for These are our intimacies, Our soft and secret Affairs of the heart....

    Thump, thump, thump, thump, Thump, thump, thump, thump, The pounding beat of a heart, Steady and unchanging staccato, A calm, collective rhythm, Until our gazes meet And you make my heart— THUMP-a-thump, a-thump-thump, Thump-thump, thump-a-THUMP. Each faltering beat racing past another—...

    The rush of the waves, The spray of the ocean Assaulting my senses With the taste of salty air, With the squish of sand beneath my feet, Bare and boldly trudging along. A misty wall of water Brushing past my face Sweeping into the sleeping city, A city that breathes, with a gentle hush, In...

    If the tale of Cupid’s arrows are true Then I was once struck by a poison-tip. I’ve tasted once the wine of love, a sip, And become drunk in my quest to love you. We were so young, our love was so new. But years pass and love angers and it slips And it curses and it strikes and it rips— ...

    I remember very clearly how I stopped caring about the way I looked. I don’t remember the date itself, or the day of the week. It was probably very sunny outside, since it was the middle of summer. I was fourteen or fifteen, something like that. I walked right up to the Wal-Mart, money in ha...
