    Your words spill out empty and you claimed not to hear when I called to you most urgently And so just as Emily isolated herself from men like you So will I bid you adieu I’m closing the door and I might break and grant the Emperor entry but you’re not a sovereign, or kneeling, and yo...

    I’m out of sync with the way you go about being yourself, and the way your body moves. Each smile. I’m an anomaly. Inside, yet still peering in from beyond. Stuck in the looking glass but no one stops to see. Stuck behind the wall I built but it’s glass - so your eyes still devour me....

    You paint your skin with sun as to hide your pale scars. But they turn a tissue pink, their ridges rising in conspiracy. Whispering to the passerby: “notice me, I’m a consequence.” They beg to be acknowledged; to be known in a history, other than your own. But you rebuke your scars an...

    We pour our heart out to strangers in coffee houses and people begging on the street. We don’t put up our walls when we know they don’t have a chance to tear them down. It’s so much easier to let the cashier at the gas station in Omaha know all the things you were too afraid ...

    Every Tuesday when the sterile air met my nostrils panic would rattle my bones and my fingers curled into fists in an attempt to distract me from the need to flee. I would clench my teeth and fake a smile as they wheeled you away. Everytime the doors swung closed behind you I wo...

    The river would burn our skin with cold and let us appear as statues made of ice. We put up with the thousands of ice-swords stabbing our pale skin because it made us feel beautiful. We would slither up boulders towards the waterfall. Climbing in the way mermaids would; cutting our knees and calf...

    I’ve been kissed, but I’ve never kissed anyone. Yes, there is a difference. So I don’t want you to kiss me. I want you to lean your head in close to mine and look at me with your speckled green eyes. I want to feel your sweet breath inviting me into your mouth. Let me kiss you hungri...

    I spent that year skipping my classes and blasting music as I drove away. Just away; anywhere that was far enough. I tried to let the pain out by screaming along to the music; like somehow if I pushed angry melodies out of my mouth I would stop feeling these things. But all those songs...

    I thought I had finished with loving him. A person only has a certain amount of love for another, right? Love isn’t infinite. Or at least that is all that I’ve seen. Love that eventually breaks because promises are fragile; sewn together with lies and the hopes of never getting cau...

    We were mostly in shadows, hidden from light by the great, haunting oak trees. Some of the larger trees groaned as the wind passed through and I imagined their roots, that must go so far down into the earth, like long, spindly feet digging into the ground just as I once long ago dug my own feet into...

    The chocolate melted before I could eat it and you left before I could fathom the word goodbye. Now the ghost of your love haunts me while I sleep; while I walk around this empty city, and when it rains. You always loved the rain. I keep forgetting to buy new laundry deterg...

    Let the liquid fire take me and leave my imprint upon the earth. Let scientists find me in a thousand years, the peaceful position of my body a fossil in the rock. Let the ashes that make up my bones be set free to the world and spread by the wind into all the intimate places of this earth ...

    Dear John, I thought you were more than just a boy. I thought you were my rescue. Taking me out to the river at night, our feet dangling in the icy current as we gaze up in wonderment at the starry sky. Because how can someone, who could take all my pain away with a single touch, turn out to be j...

    The flowers arrived at your door with a note saying ‘eight’ and you started getting ready at five, your stomach trembling with butterflies. The night passed nothing like a fairytale but that’s not what you needed. You needed real, and straight up, and honest. He most certainly obliged as you r...
