    She's so pretty, she's so sweet, with her charming smile and her ugly teeth. She's so perfect, she's so nice, with a pretty braid filled up with lice. And if you love her, you should know, you love, you love an ugly girl. And if you love her, you should see, insi...

    I'm only pretending. Lightning flashes outside the window with the curtains drawn. I'm not what you think. I'm not what you think. What do you think? I'm not what you want. What do you want? What do you want me to say? Because I won't say it. I can't say it...

    I’m beginning to think that people are candles. Burn, little candle, burn burn bright. Use your golden glow to pave the night. But then I see past the light. Wax drips like blood to peel the flesh from life. And we sit in rows and burn and our flames yearn to reach out and embrace the n...

    Oh, to be immortalized in stone. I will be forgotten, and yet I will never change. I will always be as I am, and not as I have become, For I have become only stone, stone and bone. And these desolate skeletons that chant my name, I’m beginning to forget what to say to them. I’m beginning...

    I have murdered an angel. I see now, small fragments of heaven, the pattern of life in your wings. You came closer to beg me for proof of man's true nature, or evidence of the contrary. I gave it to you. You came to offer me the meaning of meaningless breaths, and instead, I'v...

    Heavenly father. Drink your holy tribute from a "#1 Dad!" coffee cup. Read what you've done in the miracles section, and pass me the funnies. The Virgin Mother makes pancakes, and Part II of the Trinity sits in his highchair, spoonfed shredded scripture manufactured by Gerber. ...

    Shakespeare hates me. Honestly. He does. “How artfully thine has twisted and poisoned, how skillfully thine has polluted my tongue, and blistered and boiled with an articulate witch's brew, what I wielded like an ink-soaked (albeit feminine) sword!” Yes, Willy, I cuss like I use tooth...

    I don't want to breathe. I'd rather listen to words spoken like air refused. Hold your tongue like a cross to your heart, I won't take your scripture or your drink. To think; I don't wish to deny you entry to your 7 sin wonderland, Alice, from within, take me to the Scotc...

    Bloodless beast, consume me fully. I have no surrender to shield me from the heart. The touchless murder of souls. Hearts don't beat like they used to. Or maybe for you, they do....

    I have a scarred heart, marred beat it alive with jumpstart cables. So far, all you are is a drunk. I'm lying, of course. You're a soldier, a singer, a poet, an insistent ragamuffin on a ferris wheel. I bet she has bruises from your carnival games. Play for the same famous priz...

    I saw your mother's smile. I saw the birthmark on the inside of your thigh. I saw the dimple on your stomach. I saw your father's overbearing disapproval, and I didn't mind. I loved you too much. I saw your shatter-the-glass marriage traditions, and I cut myself anyway. You...

    Since when am I so twisted? Since when am I so marred? Since when am I the consequence, of inconsequential scars? Since when am I so brittle? Since when am I so owned? Since when am I so broken, full of cracks and broken bones? Since when is this the future? Since when is this the past?...

    There’s a hand tickling my back through the mattress. I can’t sleep. It won’t let me. It’s in my head now. God, why won’t it leave? What did I do to deserve this? I used to go to church. Sometimes. Occasionally. Okay, so it could be God punishing me. Whatever. Unable to...

    I’d love to be, the one that means, A little bit more than you don’t have to be all alone. Go ahead, lie with her, In your bed of silk and roses, The smell of molding petals, the only thing you notice....

    The girl in the mirror is scratching my eyes. Begging me, begging me, “Tell them. Please.” Do you believe me? Do you believe me? The girl in the mirror is sick of goodbyes. Telling me, telling me, “Keep them. Please.” Will you stay with me? Will you stay with me? The girl in the ...

    Blood is just a poisoned rum. Memories like chewing gum. Swallow, swallow, then you die. Tell me, what’s your alibi? Hearts are just for great believers. Lungs for none but sulfur breathers. Bones aren’t only for the strong. Oh wait – they are, but not for long! Veins are not but yo...

    I know my people. We come from all corners, And we are indistinguishable at first glance. But do not hear me wrong - I know my people. We are different. We are tied to the ground to keep us from flying. And our dreams get away from us, when written in the dust. But the dust is illuminated, ...

    Day unending. Life unbending. Outside my window, the world has ended. All is falling. God is calling. And what am I, but waiting, stalling? Angels fall from Heaven high. Some forgive, and others lie. What am I? But Pandora’s hope, to live forever in frozen smoke. These messengers of...

    Don't kill that man for killing the children. They would have died anyway. Look, darling, watch our daughter play! With green eyes shining like innocent new born words, so untainted by the murdered babies rotting in all our stomachs. She'll die soon. Give it a few years, darlin...

    100 candles, then I'm gone. Who waits to share my intravenous birthday cake? 100 candles, then to God. Is it true, the gates? Who waits? Who waits? The best is surely not yet to come, I know from what the spider spun. Don't keep your candles, Don't wait for your God, The w...

    Mary, Mary, you changed your name! Who would have known you'd feel no shame? Nothing, nothing, you're just a doll. Who thinks, who feels, you're just a doll. Mary, Mary, you changed your mind! Just one too many, "One more time"s Nothing, something, he loved you so....

    Cigarettes by the bedside table, Ashes in the sheets. Burns on skin that's worn too thin. The innocent count sheep. She let him scratch the surface. The virgins see the scars. Nervous when the deed is done, moreso than when it starts. She told him not to smoke inside Rekindled feed...
