    I gave up a part of myself To you Last night And I'll never get it back, I know Believe me I know. And now the only question is Was it worth it? I fed my innocence to the night For a glimpse of eternity. But Was it Am I Are you Worth it?...

    These hands, these long cool hands Are eighteen years old Artifacts in their own right. These arms, these worn tanned arms; Stronger than they look. My legs, my scarred smooth legs Like living steel rebar, unbroken. My eyes, I can never decide If they're brown or gol...

    The rough skin of a fir tree Catches at my hair as I shift On a lofty branch, enclosed By fragrant needles and sap. I've got my earbuds in And the sun is going down And I have the most perfect view. There's a soft rain beginning In the gilt horizon somewhere I can smell the clouds heavy ...

    I am delicate, I am strong I hold the emotions of your core Set in fibers from a dead spruce log I'll display your soul and more. I am your canvas for thought let me take the ink and smear Lie flat to the troubles life has wrought absorb the color and tears Let me me you...

    Torrent of lights No pause to feel The pulse of the night life Echoes of sound Rushing tunnels and Twitching beams I am adrift on a concrete river. Set the clock in fast time Don't stop till it ends But It is endless. Population 1.2 million And desperately Lonely....

    I woke you when you were Pale small and innocent The Dippers reeled and The frogs sang, the Grass moist green and fresh Between tender toes As sister shadows leapt the stone wall Running free to the lavender meadows. I took your hand warm and soft Kissed your fingertips, said Annie ...

    I am not An overly emotional person I say, straight faced And cooler than steel. Glass hits the wall My fist follows. As I suck the slivers And drywall dust From my bloody knuckles A bitter laugh escapes The irony, the hypocrisy as Real as shattered metacarpals. I remember you crying A...

    Cast the line of thought Into the limpid waters of Nothing. The silvery thread makes an arc Against a blue twilight. With white knuckles Hold to the roots of Your own sanity. I am falling apart, the Train of thought has derailed Off the skyscraper track it Once traveled. Tears race a...

    From the film reel in my skull I extract a memory. It flickers, alternating shades of light You are holding my hand, and Your fingers are long and cool. My feet are wet, standing on stone Tile by the poolside. The hair, the thick, curled hair That hung to my rear when I was small Is warmed...

    1 p.m at Wal-Mart on a Saturday. Not a good place to be if you don't like crowds. Some kid screams angrily and you wish that, for just a moment, you could be that kid's mom. So you could give him a good slap upside the head. Cause he needs one. The steady beep of the s...

    Wistful breezes in the season of perfection Copper heart leaves swirl happily, around red scarf and brown curls A crisp blue sky smiles and a V flies by, honking Black capped mischief remains for the darker days devoted to frosty Dawn Chorus Rocks have white sheets by morning while gr...

    a small black dot pinwheels miles above in a dry blue sky like magic, all the furry guys vanish into the security of dark burrows and it drops, like a suicidal fighter pilot streaming wild glory taken by a divine wind slowing only by significant milliseconds before diving, crashing, crus...

    Poetry is written because you don’t know how to get this feeling out any other way. You pour your rage, your desolation ecstasy, joy, tears and peace onto this fragile paper and, somehow, it holds it firmly You scream in terror, anguish cry silently for life in general and it seeps int...

    A large brown spider Tiptoed over the paper I was using for logarithms, Interrupting root e And I started To think of death But closed a lid on him Watched his minute fangs His angry waving forelegs A challenge to the world. What do we say to the small Before we kill them? “Such a sha...

    Blank white expanse. For now, only the dead Skin of a tree. My head, formerly inspired Full of color Is now bleak and lifeless I thank my subconscious For its cooperation Sarcasm blatant And then- It trips by on the breeze A banner, a kite, a flame Nature’s flamboyancy Manifested in ...

    The book by which millions live their lives says to turn the other cheek. I have not been raised as such. This is why I am not the victim of this story. I am a wolf. I take as much as I care to, and then you can bet money that I will turn and bite. But, there are lambs in this world, in this ...

    Last night I faced the mirror again. It was late, and the lateness of the hour Lent me peace in the tiled room. I raised my head from the sink and I made eye contact with her. She smirked, And called me a liar, a thief, stupid, ugly, Her dark eyes were beautiful and accusing. A hot tear made...
