    "You have a way with words," She told me, The clinking of her silverware Making it sound like a song. "Thank you," Was my tired response, The sadness Breaking my voice. "You don't sound like it." She stirred her tea With only 2 fingers. I could see her i...

    Watery orange paint Was running down the fresh wall. I could see me in it; I was riding a gray horse Far away from this apartment, This street, This city. I smiled. She walked back into the room, Looked at the wall And barked orders. Her cigarette was the same orange. The bruise on her h...

    I wish I could tell you That even though I don't know you all that well I want to know you. I want to know All the things That full up your thoughts. I want to know All the things That set you off. Within this little time And the couple conversations And the smiles And stares And ...

    I wish I could just say things. Say them And not feel bad about them. Say all the things I really think And I really mean. I don't want to be polite. I don't want to be nice. I want to be honest. My entire life Has been this endless cycle Of biting my tongue And then carrying a...

    Why did I waste Pages and pages Writing about you? Now that we're through, I'm so much happier. Walking on air, The clouds have cleared, My eyes have opened. I have a scar But I show it off like a warrior, Because my strength pulled me out Of the dark place I was in. I'...

    And at this point i don't really know what to think about you. one morning I don't want you in my life anymore, seeing all your flaws that tore me down. but by nightfall i'm yearning for the parts of you that put me together. and as the time goes on, with the tangle of thou...

    A thunder storm was starting to brew, the kind that lights up the whole sky in a foggy glow. When we got to the little diner, it was a light in the dark, so we dashed in, covering our heads and dresses and splashing our heels in the parking lot puddles. We took seats at the long table by the window,...

    and maybe the only reason i stay at least a little sane is because of you. you drag some colors across the sky or put out a breeze or a tune or a song that makes me happy i'm alive. i can feel you there. i can tell you're there. and i can't thank you enough, although...

    Suicidal company, Cigarette epiphanies, Hanging with the bloodshot kids, And finding out what's under my skin. Crashing cars And paper wads. I got a lighter in my hand And an aching heart. I need to find my space And a winning race. You got no where else to go When you're b...

    Figuring out the time, Figuring out the price. Finding who to love, And finding the rest of my life. I'm falling apart, As we speak, I'm going under the water please Help me please. Ask the lord Where I should go, Cause I'm lost in the dark And can't find my way hom...

    Find me in the woods, Where the birds are hushed, And take me to the creek So we can sit And wait. Throw all the rocks I have collected Into the clear water And don't let me Swim out to get them. Warm my chilled hands, So I can feel again, And help heal my feet, So walking won't b...

    This girl is lost in her world And she can't get out. She's always finding her dreams Beaten upside down. All the lies And the crooks And the books don't have a place. Many years, She's watched through the widows, But still has seen things That only those know. She...

    White finger tips, Butterflies, Vivid dreams, And pale blue eyes. We're in a frozen winter, And you're my guide. Sailing down the river Just with you, Out of wings to fly us through. We're going down hard, A little too hard. I was thrown over board And my flesh turned to s...

    Swimming in a haze, Full of right now. The roles are reversed And the queen takes a bow. There's no other way to go Then forward. Time seems to part And the world seems to stop. So I take my treasure And go for a walk. There's no other way Than just to take it with me. ...

    I spend my time Wanting to be you. But then, I realize, I only see What you let people see. I don't see Your thundering flaws Or get lost In your darkest thoughts, Like you do. We can lie to the world, Say that we're happy, But on the inside We're all the same, Chasing ...

    On the inside We're just skeletons And blood made to boil. We hold each others Hands And take a tug when we're in toil. But there's no Light down here Where the grass is no longer grown. I can pray my heart out But they'll be no one to hold. On the inside There's...

    As the world spins too fast, The people on it run Right over the edge of the sidewalk. Everything turns upside down, Into a world of few crosses And onto a path of brittle cracks. With a sky smeared by a hand of grease And trees, Holding out their slivers of silver bone Out into the air Th...

    Across the tracks, I could see your figure. Undeniably tall, Remarkable, distinct. (Or at least You were in my eyes.) My trembling fingers Filled with numb bone Felt heavy With the weight of nothing. Frozen air Filled my insides And crusted my skin. I wore my curiosity Like a dripping ...

    I was tired of watching the time. So I took apart the clock. I disconnected the hands And ripped out the face. I pried at the screws But nothing moved. I could not break the wood Holding my prize. I could not stop the ticking. The clock, It kept telling time. It screeched each second, Br...

    Culture has walked miles from where it used to be. Shows have become more about reality, or what we think reality may be. Stereotypes show up too. MTV recently aired the season finale of their new show, Buckwild. Since this show has started playing, the people of West Virginia have hated the way the...

    Light was slowly beginning to fall through the window blinds, creating stripes of light against the maroon walls. Shadows from the activity outside danced on the smooth walls, like a shadow puppet show. The city life meant that there was no peace outside, there are always people on the move and cars...
