    One thing I've learned from always being in this town: when you mix all the colors you're sure to get brown. Hold your breath when crossing the bridge, and don't look back, no matter what. Nothing is ever easy; people are stupid. Smile Like You Mean It,'cause Believe Me ...

    Your words, sweet and dancing, Swept over me like the summer breeze, Enveloped me like your cigarette smoke, And yet I didn't know to choke. Didnt know to run, Didnt know to escape, Until it was too late. Your touch, gentle and entrancing, Fingers dancing across my skin, Beckoned me cl...

    She was a dream Intangible, unmanageable Wild child, hot mess, Her hair and dress all in a whirl As she spun and spun Not a care in the world Racing to the top of the hill and dancing, dancing, beneath the stars. She was so far, far away; I couldn’t get her to stay. Straying from my ...

    The cool embrace of clean sheets as I slipped out of the burgundy prom dress and into bed, the air thick with the smell of roses and my cheeks still flushed from a first kiss.
