    I smell the rain as a liquid crystal f a l l s. I smear the tear of heaven as it m e l t s into my skin. It seeps into my pale body and f l y s. Though soaring quickly it's too l a t e. An inch from my soul, it's g o n e....

    I’ve a silk blouse that falls so gently over my thighs and a coffee mug you bought. In faded and defeated letters it reads, ‘Invincible summer.’ Summer, though, is no longer and I’ve never known a winter so cold. So here I sit and think of a halcyon time by the ocean where we found...

    I clutch the pinstriped umbrella as I stroll the old long walk. Sitting on the park bench a fella of blue eyes and black hair. He clasps a ticket and whistles the song of an Irish band. I pardon myself to have a seat and his accented gesture allows. I ask where he is going and he asks why a...

    She wore the flower crown as it lay perfect on her head. She dreamt of growing up as she sat in the flower bed. She looked up to the sky and asked to tell a secret the stars began to dazzle and she asked, "Can you keep it?" They began to crumble and she'd be lying if she said...

    It's pushing down hard on my chest and all I can do is try to catch my breath. Been this way for such a long time you think you're a quarter and I'm a dime. I get beat step by step, but you just wait you'll get what you get. The sky is starting to grow black, ...

    You and I are celestial; ‘us’ has shifted and floated to space. There’s no telescope I could buy that could find the galaxy with our memories. At a time you were my idol then our friendship was idolized, but now we are only problematic. I heard their fatuous words to you but I sought n...

    As I walk through the city our bucolic memories haunt me and the street lights light up my shame. Together we were idyllic as we pirouetted into the lake. The trickles of water were ornate and copied the silhouette of our bodies. The sound of the water was my soul and the bitter cold was kno...

    In the New Year I thought we’d kiss but as I leaned in it was a miss. On Valentine’s Day I’d be yours except for her, you held the door. When Easter came you’d be my bunny though when I sat in your lap you looked at me funny. On St. Patrick’s day we’d have a drink but a toast was ...

    Tangled in your style and class you twinkle like a sliver of glass. Fragile and fierce with wicked eyes you roll like thunder in the night. Perched there on your thrones you helped my feathers be shown. And "through the woods" I flew like a "little bird" with wings anew. ...

    You take my hand and spin me round our feet whisper as they tiptoe on the ground. I'm entangled in you as you pull me close hold me soft while we move to and fro. Now you're standing rather near, the lights go out but I have no fear. Still, the band will play and the chords will stre...

    Cinderella taught me to never lose hope, she said to be patient and love will soon show. Rapunzel always chased her dreams and Belle found beauty in the heart of a beast. Mulan was impressively brave and strong while Tiana achieved even if it seemed prolonged. Ariel sacrificed for the one tha...

    Atop this mountain, neither star nor moon will shine but from up here I see the miserable city aglow with lovely lights. I look behind a pine tree and I am not sure of what I see right there in the darkness, a lonesome figure gleams. Is this the drowning voice that was sent to guide me? Or is t...

    I heard you laugh and cry, we'd been waiting for such a long time. You thank God and I know why. I hear you scream and plead, 'You should have taken me!' You ask God what we did to deserve this. Call your parents then call mine, over the line I hear their laughter, you and...

    Hold your breath and count to three, you will surely fall asleep. Don’t you worry for the blames on me, you’re going to endure a fantasy. We’ve lived our lives inside lovely dreams, only waking as we sleep. Here you don’t have to sell your soul just so you can have it all, give a little...

    I’ve got a friend who wears a mask of porcelain, her face is pale and white yet she wears a smile of delight. Her voice seems to echo and I‘m the only one who will ever know. I’ve seen her everyday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the past three years, no one will ever hear her ‘see ...

    Making eye contact with you is simply eerie, you look into the depth of my soul and there is no place for me to hide. The glow of your electric green eyes lights up my dreary life. So confident in yourself never needing to wear a disguise. You are so inscrutable it’s inapprehensible. The re...

    I know who you are. I know what you are. But, I don’t know why you are. I know things are different now, but then again that’s no excuse, is it? Why would you think you need to do this because of what happened? And that’s when I start to get a bloodcurdling thought: You actually enjoy this and...

    Lipstick stains and a messy french braid, the smell of coffee and a full ashtray. You’re probably missing the mini bar, I would stop and ask you how you are. But, it’s been how long since I smelt your $50 cologne? I could drown myself in your deep brown locks. I loved how angry you’d...

    "You're doing so good. You're getting better." Remember? Your words were jolting and unfolding in my medicinal filled head. Before I would not even know if today was tomorrow or yesterday or a week ago. I felt like Gollum from the Lord of the Rings, I was scared of the sun and ...

    I look at you and I try to walk through, but you’re a labyrinth. You blink apprehensively and act like you can’t see me. My thoughts start to teeter and my face is hot like rum and a fever. You’re looking gob smacked and take a step back… I came here with a serene attitude, but I’m ...

    On a rope that's unbreakable, practicing a religion that seems unfaithful, playing a game I'll never win. Abiding by rules that benefit who? That's right, not even you. You say that patience is the key- The key to what? An endless infinity. If I stay here, I'm forever at...

    I am going to sing you a song but first you must hush and take it all in. Here I go, shhh, I'm going to begin. You talk about time and waste sweet youth. But that's no more for I'll tell you the truth. There is no secret to stop growing up fast, so I ask you a question- Will...

    I saw you from a distance you did not know I was there. You look the same as you have before, but today there is something more. Where to begin I am unsure the love I used to offer you was radiant, but reflected in my eyes. At the sight of you I tremble my dying love I can't disguise. ...

    I don’t dare say your name, for what might I hear? When I stutter it out loud my body shivers in fear- It’s sleek down the spine but cringes at the ear. I’ll avoid your face, for I know what a sight. It’s like walking with my eyes closed and searching for a light. The silence in you...

    Clean up your make-up, it’s only a break-up that’s what my momma said. I just hate it when people point out the obvious. But, that’s not the problem, she doesn’t even know the half of it. The thought of my story is very gory and I don’t mean bloody or gross. I only mean it’s tough ...
