    As children, we piled leaves Into neat, organized arrangements, And for what purpose? To destroy it. We took time And energy Working our tiny, chafed hands on rakes To drag the dry vegetation Into crisp-smelling clusters Of red And orange And brown. For each leaf retrieved from the yell...

    You hand me my third iced coffee this week. French vanilla One cream, two sugars And I can tell that you are thinking about it. You hold my hand a little too tightly As we dance in a swarm of tiny campers Laughing and saying, "Just friends" When their eight-year-old selves ask us B...

    There;s going to come a time When you realize that you laugh the hardest when you were with your friends And feel prettiest when you are alone And are the most yourself when you aren't trying for anyone. It's going to be a time When you realize that you don't need him All you ne...

    Now, I've seen many episodes of crime shows and therefore witnessed many Hollywood produced autopsies. As such, I know that the inside of us is densely packed--everything squished and twisted to pack as much body stuff in there as they can. Since I know this, since I've seen M.E. Dr. Malla...

    I told her, watch your words-- Sharp words are hard to swallow Told her-- Make 'em sweet Or wash them down with some salt water Told her-- Swallow them back Before the bitter fills your mouth Told her-- Bite your tongue Because you'll spit the bitter out. Told her watch her word...

    I did it for us, I did it for you Never mind my battle wounds, Don't look at the scars, Oh surely they'll fade, Blood washes off, pain goes away, I look at you now Place the box in your hands, Sorry it's not wrapped I hope you understand, You look at the box And you look at...

    A heart ignored Is one that was once hurt So deeply, That it feels the only way to survive is to pretend it doesn't exist. A heart ignored burrows itself in the deepest hollows of the chest Turns off the lights And blocks all the cracks and crevices That could let in Just a beam Of su...

    'I cover my ears with my hands, wincing at the noise. The baby crying, the rain pounding on the window, the creaking of unknown footsteps. Blood pounding in my ears, my pulse vibrating every inch of me; shaking in fear. My back is against Margaret's crib and my knees are tucked to my chest...

    If I don't keep walking forward I know I'll come running back So I try to trust my strides And try to keep my shoulders back, To keep going forwards harder If you keep having to stop I'll be jogging walking crawling-- Keep moving 'till I've dropped, If I stop for ju...

    Your grasp is the ropes that catch the fire Hold me to the stake, The flames that lick at my bare toes Are the burning words you say. The fuel that draws the fire closer Is the way you meet my eyes, And the smoke that fills my lungs with each breath Were all the terrible lies. Your ever-chan...

    Rain pounds on pavement like a drum, Drops sucking out the heat She let's the droplets patter, Dances barefoot to the beat. The thunder cracks a rhythm Lightning cracks across the sky But she flings her arms around her, Blinks the water from her eyes. She twirls amongst the raindrops ...

    I've walked a mile in your shoes Literally And I still don't know where you're coming from. In your brown Sperry's Molded to your feet--we switched in my mother's car this morning. I still don't have a feel for your motivation Or what goes on in that head of your...

    I've grown up in a very religious family of Catholic Christians, and as a teenager looking for anything and everything to rebel against, I can admit that I turned away from the Church. I know it broke my mother's heart to hear me complain about what an utter waste of time mass was, and how...

    The saddest part About the things you say Is that I'm getting used to it. I'm growing numb to the spiteful words And I should never Never Have to lower my standards that much To a point Where this is all I expect This is how I expect To be treated. I don't deserve it But I...
