    You can keep your Prince Charming And your Love At First Sight. A Land Far, Far Away was never my home. I'll be no Damsel in Distress Waiting for a White Knight to charge up And rescue me from the Dragon; Forget riding off into the Sunset. I don't want a Fairy Tale. Being a Princess is...

    Should everyday be Halloween for me Because I am not what I should be? Shall I costume myself every morning To spare your sensibilities the shock Of an appearance and an identity That is not what you requested? Do I need a mask of plastic Because my face is not fantastic And wonderfully clon...

    With the smell of sunlight Upon her translucent skin, She danced out of his life. Like an ill-fated summer day, Heralded by clear, bright skies And closed with angry growls Of a malevolent storm; Their time was bittersweet. He hurled himself carelessly From the known cliff of sense, And ...

    The Music pulses as the Moon rises; I'm running just to keep the pace. Just beyond the Trees I see it: Life. My Lungs are searing and Breath straining. The Melody urges me onward. Branches tie me to this World; Knotting, grasping, clutching, Their Desperation equals mine. Feet pound the fre...

    I'm not too sure of you or her But that doesn't really matter. I never had a choice when her mind was made, And I'm waiting for my own to know you. This isn't what I want to say To either of you right now, But the words aren't available To make my message clear. This is the best I can do, A...

    This girl in the mirror, With flushed cheeks and wide eyes, She is me; But I know her not. I have never met her; Or spoken to her. We have never strolled together, Commenting on the day And how things aren't what they used to be. We haven't sat down, And dined side-by-side. She is the utm...

    As I search for inspiration In the things that you do, I find myself fascinated By the things that you do. It is utterly irrational To let go so quickly But everything is screaming To let go this quickly. I’ve been waiting in secret For this to finally happen; And now I am doubting ...

    Can you love me with no make-up on? Without the dark, long lashes, Without the pretty, clear skin, Without the rosy, glossy lips. Can you love me? Could you love me with my hair un-styled? Without the twenty minute straightening, Without the five minute brushing, Without the two minute pon...

    In the calm before the storm, When the wind stops moaning And the trees cease writhing; When the bruised sky stills And the last frail light dies… In the penultimate moment, Before the wind screams agony And the trees contort with pain; Before the bruised sky convulses And the forever d...

    Trapped in my head And fighting for escape, One thought forms. Life-saving, life-changing: Type. Fingers on letters. The percussion of poetry; Tapping and clicking. Stiletto steps of syllables. In silence, monochromatically, I discover this thing Which spews metaphors and rhymes; Thi...

    A beautiful terror has occurred, One unforeseen and tragic. It is irreparable, And nothing can change it. Heaven has gone up in flames. The Crystal Sea evaporated. Every mansion burned to the cloud, And what was left plummeted. Relentlessly the smoke has rained From clouds of consuming ...

    The light shining through the trees Is frail and flickering weakly. Is there an answer to this question? Hopelessness reads in every line Of every rock littered on the ground; Even nature is sorrowful. Clouds that once hovered on the horizon, Now amass and darken; The anger is imminent. A f...

    Wait, slow down for a minute. Do you smell that scent? Oh, so you think it’s love. Of course love is in the air; Two teenagers are together. Darling, you’re not that special. Love is as commonly found As those dirty looks she sends me. So put your arm around me And I’ll smile br...

    Show me something I've never seen before, Some thing beyond all the confines I know. Sing to me a song, tell me what it's for; I need to see the truth is has to show. Write a poem that can break me apart And make the world stop spinning for a day. Tell me you love me with more than your heart;...

    Kiss me in black and white With your thick-lashed eyes closed. Let's make a perfect night And who but us need know? Hold me with the sunlight Of your warm fingertips; Trailing across my eyes And stenciling my lips. I'm an acquired taste, Yes, a rare vintage wine. Sip me slowly, don't h...

    One glance and you’re gone, Beyond all chance of rescue or return; Some things you just can’t deny. Yeah this is make believe, Just a dream that never ends. This is life, baby, at its best. Live and let die has never meant more; Live and let live never less. This is gritty and uncomforta...

    A Picture of Heart Break A freefalling leaf in the wind Photographed in black and white So lonely and desolate Frozen on its journey Caught in a moment of dejection The fall from branch to ground Is the descent from life to death Born upon the limb Unfurling in the sunlight Bright, green...

    As raspberries rise in the east, Sweet, fizzy bubbles fill the air. Mint eyes open wide to the light And prepare to survive the day. As grapes slowly pass by, Rolling steadily and crookedly, Golden delicious hair thickly tangles; Reacting to dissatisfaction and strife. As strawberry se...

    The tiny snowflakes swirl and collide Muffling every sound and muting all colors. The words between us plummet down Into a frozen well of no meaning. Wasted breaths that frost around the flakes Changing the situation not at all. Our conversation is as meaningful as the snow: Special in the ai...

    Living days with a confused heart, Do you feel the same? Little things reminding me Of stuff to do with you: A lyric, a gesture, a smell. I'm not sure that I want To forget about you or us, Even though the memories bruise As deeply as the wall Bruised my knuckles yesterday. Wondering i...

    Dig. Dig deep. Crescent nails dig Crescent trenches; Trying to feel Emotions physically. Dig. Dig deep. Into skin dig Superficial graves. The reddened flesh Marks empty tombstones. Dig. Dig deep. To forget, dig Past hurt and love. Rediscover a self In love with hu...

    When you've forgotten how to feel Everything but love, There are certain steps you must take To remember yourself. One: Let yourself feel hurt. Gasp at the pain in your heart, Which is like nothing else. Take shallow breaths Because your chest is tight And your ribs won't expand. Feel ...

    I am a girl who cannot draw hearts. While other girls ink hearts and names On their paper, inside their binders, I am scribing down lyrics Trying to unstick the song in my head; Or jotting down stanzas and rhymes For whatever inspiration I have. I say that I don't draw hearts Because ...

    Words flow Out and about Circle through heads Of dreamers in bed Awaken in their minds A sense which was blind Like an unheard shout Within, without Words flow. Words dance Around through sound In a continous jive Prove to all you are alive Living life more fully than they Who you t...
