    I sat there, tuning in and out of your static voices, my feet lazily propped up onto the dashboard. Your lengthy programs came to an end, and as I looked out to the blurring landscape only one thing echoed through my head: “Of course we know you.” Well, then you’d know my fa...

    The Earth sings an ode to all things orange, to the Sunday morning peels, who leave their fiery-citrus tracks sprawled along the counter. To the smoky embers that glow bright long after the sun has fallen and the fire has died. To the pixie-dust twinkles from burning sunsets that flicker a...

    Princesses are rescued by fearless knights, they are not left to rot in a crumbling tower, or fed to the hungry dragons lying deep in the forest. The don’t fight with her parents, or struggle to pay rent, or toss and turn late at night, deep in thought. They have never scraped their kn...

    I never quite understood the world, and maybe I never will. For we all seem a little. . . confused, a little mad, and even a little in love. Oh, but not only with people, with things too, and feelings. . . those especially! Those who are lucky wrap their heads around first loves ...

    It will be years from now. I'll be sitting solo at the bar with one too many drinks on my tab when you’ll creep into my mind. The thought of you will be enough to slump my shoulders and buy me another drink. It will be years from now. I'll be starring at the symphony of sta...

    We write about our feelings for the same reasons we complain about crumbs; because we’re not always sure how they got there, and it’s hard as hell trying to get rid of them....

    There is no such thing as a bad seed, there is only such thing as a crooked flower. For we all start off as something good, but it is those who are poorly water and hidden in the shade that grow up a bit wilted....

    I knew what I was doing, but I didn’t seem to care. Was it those careful words, big smile, or your lovely brown hair? I knew what I was doing, but I had fallen for your spell. All your crazy tricks and schemes were putting me through hell. I knew what I was doing, that I had t...

    She flirts with the devil the way she flirts with boys; with a fiery glow deep in her eyes. She kisses her bottle the way she kisses boys; with an ease no one else possesses. She plays with her cigarette the way she plays with boys; with a smile curled pink on her lips....

    Maybe sometimes you don’t get it, maybe sometimes you do. Maybe sometimes you think about me, the way I think of you. Maybe you forgot the things That I will always remember, remember when we played queens and kings, when we were still together? Maybe you’ll sit back one day, and realiz...

    I used to rely on red murky seas to define my strength. No matter how many, or how deep I could hold my breathe forever. But then one canyon ran too deep with red and I realized that I couldn't breathe anymore. So, to this day I plant flowers along those riverbeds, because flow...

    The friendship I admire most, is the ones the stars share. They all burn so brightly, but not a single star tries to shine alone, and certainly never tries to eclipse the others....

    My biggest fear is not heights, or death, or spiders, or clowns, or burglars, or anything in between. My biggest fear is myself. Because in the end I’m the one who looks down and panics. I’m the one who thinks about funerals and eternal darkness. I am the one who shrieks at the l...

    When I’m craving a pizza out of this world, I turn to the seemingly cheese covered, tomato speckled Lo. When I’m feeling restless in my small town, I take my rocket ship to the cold, foreign lands of Europa. When I’m yearning for some excitement, I skate as fast as a come...

    It was because our veins were filled with a little more than blood, It was because our heads were spinning a little more than usual, It was because our bodies felt warmer laying on the freezing grass than they did in front of a fire, It was because you had waited so long to tell me...

    She was skin and bones Laced in a velvet blanket Of Mountain and blue lakes Sewn together by tiny threads Worn away by her mind Shivers and icicles Electric storms buzzing One blue, one white Calmed her ocean's rages Set her in a sea of peace Flew her to the clouds Where she would n...

    Sadness creeps up in souls Like frost covered mornings, And sweet sugar cubes. Leaving collar bones, And the spaces between your thighs To soak up the quiet. Silent like ghosts in the dark Lacing their way through midnight With heavy footsteps of the stars. Foggy minds caked with hunger, A...

    But I am just the girl with old photographs. Whose wrists are so shy they hide in her sleeves. Sleep doesn't come easy, and waking up is worse. The girl who plays the melody of rain in her head. Whose words try so hard to be beautiful. Never great, but always good. The girl who finds comf...
