    What they don’t tell you in school Is that the glare from a rocket isn’t red It is white The kind of white one only sees against black It’s never mentioned that bombs don’t burst in the air They detonate on contact Shattering everything at the sight of impact Collision is very necessa...

    All the action figures on you bookshelf The empty Pepsi cans and dishes Each discarded piece of dirty laundry These, too, will eventually fall The letters from distant family The pictures drawn by childhood companions Including the careless art of your lover These, too, will eventually fal...

    Wasted in some dark alleyway Licking the tip of the needle I stole I can still taste the ephedrine that lingers there I never planned to join the fray Fray what remains of my nerves now So I can't feel my own disapproval Something in the air smells strangely like my disgust I have to ...

    The imitation silk sky glimmers tonight I am stuck in this city, surrounded by spite There are rumors of a long gone blistering light But I know a myth when I see one Smoke swirls bring beauty to the stable air If this is a Kingdom, I'm Calamity's heir Nearly a decade can't c...

    I went to your funeral You were crying by the urinals With eyes that seemed so terminal To see that I'd survived So I asked you how you got away You said those awful things you say I guess laughter is the price we pay For going way too far Dear, I read your diary I admit not quite ...

    Was it in my head? The burning sensation just below my fingernails All those little noises Distractions Was I unfaithful? Or was I ready with stories I wanted so badly to hurt you Entirely willing and eager to hurt myself in the process I became obsessed You became confused I became delude...

    I walked up and choked on the Host Said "goodbye" to what I loved most I picked my heart up off the floor I just can't stay here anymore I kiss the open lotus bloom Laughing at the dew I consume But I'm staring at a closed door I just can't stay here anymore Wh...

    How I miss that gentle Garden Bathing in the fresh new moonlight With you, from my side, by my side Loving within this creation I look with shame upon the sword How I miss that gentle Garden Embarrassed of my nakedness And these leaves wont hide everything You were cursed for your betra...

    Your words on my tongue taste like stale ozone I coughed and spattered, prostrate on the floor I heard what you played, but hated the tone I swore not to dance along anymore But, as usual, I didn't commit I found my feet tapping. My body swayed Singing your song, forgetting I damned it Y...

    I French Kissed Damnation in the back room She smiled like we were perfectly normal But I wanted something more informal All she wanted was a life to consume I was tied down as a bleeding bridegroom Sucked down into her personal worm hole Her tastes proved to be shockingly dermal I escaped we...

    I saw you standing against the ocean I was jealous of the sun on your skin A stubborn resolve met constant motion My breath was silenced by a dropping pin So you flew away, aloof and unchanged O'er the sea, singing to constellations I was consumed and became quite deranged My words were ...

    I found Religion in your eyes Because God leans against your retina Provoking a soulful melody from a viola And when he tires, he walks through the forest of your iris How I envy God in this moment…. I found Music on your lips Because each note that spills from them Collects to create a sym...

    A shallow mind behind a pretty face A sparrow so blind to disgraceful lies To find one so low within our own kind Wrapped in lace, though Divine Grace makes her glow Takes so much to swallow. It's heartbreaking. Earth-shaking art faking tear-making trash Crashing through each turn she...

    If I should ever be so overcome By darkness to allow myself to cry Then I shall trace these old wounds with my thumb Until my heartbeat falls and makes me high If I should be found on the bathroom floor Convulsing without my sense or reason Then it would be better to lock the door Rather tha...

    Cross reference the cross-hairs and take your aim The same presence as your blank stare soothes you A tree moves at the wind’s preference, they say A dream come true will lay the blame on me Take care to be shrill, claim the day and run Seize the hand of your lover, eat the pill Find fun at ...

    Echoes of sirens bounce from house to house Trapped between the plywood and the plaster Each wave of sound bites like a hungry louse A whip itching the hand of the master Do not trust the darkness or the quiet For now is when the Zombies come to feast A Monster can be caged without much fret ...

    On a ship of slaves I told you I’d never let go Forced you to do the same But before I tasted salt It was brilliant The most iconic romance in the most ironic place I was a vagabond A dirty American Just dancing with the rest of the crew But I drug you down too Taught you the steps Spil...

    Young, fragile friend with imposing laughter How much time have I forsaken to you? Six forevers and an hour after Flinching each time a Southerly wind blew We read poetry until the Sunset Displayed our naked fears on your small bed We were insecure wrecks before we met Souls pulling each othe...

    There’s more misery in your walk than most So tell me what’s left when you’re engorged with the Host I was supposed to ask you… I remember that much Those crystals in your fingers must hurt a ton Why not shatter them all and be done? How rude of me. I never meant to stare You...

    All of the flowers are dying down there Surely you see it. It isn’t just me. Your bitter words are completely unfair. You love who I am, but hate who I’ll be Kiss Christmas goodbye as I lie with you We’ll pretend we aren’t falling apart Blur the line between what’s mine and what’s ...

    The night I left my home for Hollywood, the wind was bitter. My denim jacket did little against the unforgiving atmosphere as I trudged through the light dust of snow that had already left the dark Illinois soil a soft white. With shaking hands, I desperately attempted to catch a ride from every pas...

    You wake me from sleep with a gentle hand Though I deserve your righteous anger From your eyes, it's clear that you understand The echos of when you touched me linger Extinguished by the noises from the trees As that scoundrel runs out to kiss your cheek My sword brings the first soldier ...

    My city calls my name most every night To protect them when bedbugs come out to bite Creatures crawl out and fill these people with fright I seem to be the only one willing to fight Convinced, though I am, that what I do is right I am only more darkness in a place that needs light But my si...
