    I would paint more, But the canvas is already covered – Brush strokes on top of brush strokes; Out with the old, in with the new But every new painting Is darker than the last....

    A stitch in time And the smiling cat on the sweater Smiles a little wider At the face that rescued him, His fur matted and ears torn, From the box marked “Second-hand clothing Looking for a good home.” Another stitch; I am an expert surgeon Sewing up a woolen heart. I can’t help b...

    I wear my scars Like a necklace: Wrapped around my neck – Ready to strangle me, And hanging over my heart – Always reminding me Of its burdensome presence With its cold, silver touch....

    I am an author of the forest, A poet writing in the depths of the earth. Pages of loose leaf Hang off my branches To be written on the wind, Veined by lines of poetry And stained with the ink of nature. Pointed pencils grow off my limbs, Their sharpened tips cutting the air And writing my...

    I loved like the night did, Holding onto the last threads of day And wrapping everything in my embrace. My heart said what the lyrics couldn’t And I breathed the words off the page. I wanted to strangle the helplessness Out of the earth and sky, But I was left with a winter feeling And m...

    It’s a different type of poetry, One that I don’t know. The world beats with its warmth, Just out of my reach And taunting me with desire. Why can’t I have it: This fiery poetry they call love?...

    Aim for the stars And they’ll be knocked from the sky; Shoot for the moon And you’ll put another hole in my heart, But set of toward forever And you’ll never stop flying....

    Peter Pan The boy who wouldn’t grow up No, the boy who could choose Not to grow up How I envy him How I envy his freedom And the world he lives in Neverland Where you Never grow up Never worry about adult issues Never have to face destruction Never breathe in sickly air Never stop f...

    We lay on the ground on opposite sides of our forest, The scent of leaves and spring and living things Pouring into our souls in mutual unspoken understanding. Between us grew a plant: a single, green sapling That reached through our pasts and found a place Where our overgrown paths merged as...

    Nail bites On my sweaty palms, My hands shaking furiously At the piercing pain. Clenched fists Trying desperately to conceal The red-rimmed half moons Hidden within....

    My blood is the ink to write my story, Every drop pouring into the chaotic lines And bleeding out with uncorked emotion To create a tragic myth defined by the past. Wounds spill their memories on a distant horizon And the glorious sunset blooms into a red, unearthly rose, Its crimson roots p...

    They wanted me to go to the masquerade ball To wear yet another concealing mask, But they didn’t realize that the princess Only goes as far as my disguising costume: A perfectly mysterious fairy tale facade Beneath which I hide my hate for masquerades....

    Ash falls around me in a cold fire; Destruction fills my vision. The sky is filled with the darkness of night, Void of all the shining stars That despairingly fall to the ground. I call out into the frigid silence But there is no answer; Even my echo has abandoned me In this desolate, colo...

    Step 1 Wipe away the tears with gauze And dab away the blood, Taking care not to remember too much Lest your wounds cry anew. Step 2 Disinfect the cuts with care And apply a little hope. Sooth scratches and bruises With acceptance (it will sting a bit). Step 3 Use the needle and strin...

    A day will come When the river of words dries up, When my fingers start to wither And time reveals the smiles beneath my eyes. I will be able to look at my past As one standing before a forest: Seeing the green-crowned trees standing tall, The tumulus tangle of plants unable to fade Yet un...

    I long for summer And raindrops of green budding on trees. I miss the clarity of an unfrozen stream, The warmth it reflects onto the sandy bottom And the feathered birds of the water it hides. For summer is when the passion of life awakens And the poetry flows unashamed in the sunlight, Whe...

    I am a pale ghost, Born of the night and of the shadows. My wings are the leaves of a tree, My eyes and name the nectar of the moon; I am an apparition raised from the dead And returned from the spirit world. My hollow, haunting song hides in my heart For my sealed mouth has never uttered a...

    I am a princess of a place unknown, Yearning for the carelessness of a dance Amidst my dark and heavy life. A fairy godmother came to my rescue, Promising me a night of freedom. She made me a gown of midnight velvet, The fabric scattered with twinkling jewels And the skirt spread across the...

    Another headstone disappeared From the cemetery, Yet another old memory Fading from my thoughts. I thought I could fly If I only believed so, But it turns out they were lying, So I fell back to reality. I saw another star Shoot away into eternity And I wanted to bring it back To live in...

    I hate winter Because it is cold and numb, Just like the certain something inside me Who's presence I would gladly Like to ignore forever. I hate winter Because it is pale and blank, Just like the thoughtless expression That covers my face In a frigid embrace. I hate winter Because it...

    I am a particle of dust, Blown to where life deems fit And settled in a lonely corner Until I am swept off again. Covering forgotten dreams In my thought-filled attic, Covering my own frustration At never finding a home, Covering the mirror That reflects my ghoulish face. Mindless, dee...
