    There are clouds in my head That cover any sense In a thin veil of white, But my ribs are made of daggers That peek though thick skin And constantly try to bite; And I guess that's why every Soldier needs a strategist, And why I feel like I might. And I know that you don't think i...

    I am a punk Because I f*** stereotypes in my aunt's bathroom When I chop off my long curls with rusted scissors And pray to myself instead of some vague idea Of Salvation Because I am the only thing I know And I am my only hero. I collect teapots and black eyeliner and leather skirts ...

    Please understand that I recognize all the dangers, But it’s my own cowardice keeping me away. That, and her iced hair and bon fire heart. But I have a bon fire in my heart too, And it fills my lungs with its smoke and crawls Out of the gap between my front teeth, Sweeping through the atmos...

    I miss my mother, yes, But I can feel her when I stand In the middle of the street alone At dusk, in my pajamas. I can feel her brush my arms When the sweet wind blows past And when the trees rustle, I hear her calling out my name, “Maggie, Maggie, little peanut girl … ”...

    Mama cried yesterday, She said, “All my light has gone away”, But baby, the dark is deep And the monsters, they follow me. She never saw it coming When she got to the top; Mama fell down the stairs, Crying “Baby, I’ll see you there.” The sun had ran away, Laughing, “That’ll be...

    I passed out on the floor again In the middle of the day, homework out, Drowned in the dreams that my mind Couldn’t find time for in the night. The kind that leave you searching For the thing you dreamt of hiding somewhere In the closet, still snickering. Because Even awake and freely movi...

    I swear to the stars, I heard you say it, And I swear to the stars that it wasn’t the first time. Something like a subliminal message, A little poke on my shoulder. You waited for me to notice. I pray to the sun that their lips moved in fib, Some misunderstanding stirring my vision, Prey...

    Whenever I try to draw you in letters, I cannot for the life of me capture all those peaks and ridges and plains of your body. I can't even grasp the sad, dopey eyes that sit in your sockets surrounded by heavy velvet curtains, telling me that you found better things to do last night than sleep...

    Sitting there, reading his typical paper on his typical Sunday morning, Samuel J. Kent had no feelings of unusual happenings. Absorbed in his list of mundane job openings, he took no notice when a woman appeared –quite literally- out of the thick summer air. Landing, from a sort of hovering state,...

    I like you best With your hair laying limp Against your cheeks Reading Hemingway and Drifting to sleep I quite like you when You can’t sit still Readjusting your feet and Crossing your arms I can’t ignore When you smile to yourself One corner of your lip Lifting, eyes focusing ...

    I held in my shaking hand what was once a bitter breath, A word, a secret, on which I had dwelled, A secret I had sworn to embrace till death A clandestine, diminutive thing That which exposed my longing A gash on a cardinal’s wing A desperate need for belonging But from that secret came ...

    Little girl lost In a forbidden tunnel, center For all to see But carrying her pride wholly With tears in her eyes And a heart in her hands. Shoot me, love For I have seen Far too many cruelties like these Dancing on the soul Of the underground hope Kicking up leaves Causing complication...

    Do you see the stars tonight? The way the flicker and Dance As if they may die at any second. But they shine just the same, The perfection of such a small Light They whisper, they sing and as you watch Just gazing, dipped, locked in a Trance. Perhaps this tim...

    I guess sometimes I can be Poetic But I often think Pathetic Fits swimmingly. And sometimes I am Little But I always wished I knew how to be Big. At times I can be so damn Optimistic But there are others when I feel so Numb. I know no reasons for much at all But I believe that some Im...

    No, I wouldn’t say the air is crisp, No. It’s? soft Inviting It’s pure nostalgia of things Never experienced. It’s long walks with strangers in the park; It’s nights working the graveyard shift alone When everything seems dead But you feel so alive; It’s a kiss on the Brooklyn ...

    I may be a bit late but Here’s to a good year Here is to figuring things out Here is to growing up Here is to perhaps an inch or two Here is to more smiles And here is to us. Here is to possibilities Here is to happy tears Here is to hard work Here is to concentration Here is to progres...

    He is baby’s skin, warm and Soft, a silk covering over bleached bone. He takes up the room, yet Remains invisible, a piece of the foundation Itself, but demanding at times. His voice is gravel and sand Smooth but rough, speaking Words beautifully. He is old but Timeless; the look of a m...

    An eraser is like optimism, It’s useful, But easy to lose. I guess that’s like most things, Because I lose everything. My remote, my keys, Even my cat. I guess they are all useful things; Things for changing, Things for coming and going, Things for company, I guess. Like an era...
