    Left wing, right wing. Both wings needed to fly America’s eagle. One wing too heavy, the bird will fall, The subtle balance rules us all. But of true equality, the world’s incapable, Liberalistic values nearly inescapable, Unless you drown yourself in politics, Shoot your brains out wit...

    Bury me in the colored leaves of September. No, cremate me. Spread my ashes across the unyielding rocks of Karak. Make sure the air is crisp and chilly, enough to make your breath rattle hoarsely in your throat as you upend the box of ashes. Do not let my friends see this; it is your burden al...

    I am of no consequence. Such a pretentious phrase. As if no one loves me Or ever could. Attention-seeker. No. I refused to be labeled. I do not seek attention. I merely want my voice To fly above others. "Is there a difference?" My brain asks. But my heart stubbornly argues...

    No, I never said stop. I refused to assert myself. Good 'ole gutless me. You asked me, "Does it really matter?" The words were punctuated By your greedy kisses. No, I never said stop. But I did say "Yes."...

    Duck... Duck... Duck... GOOSE! Wait! Is it too late? May I change my choice? Because now, As I flee from your Unwanted embrace, Eyes aghast in pure terror, I realize: I shouldn't have picked you....

    I miss those four-foot-two days When my biggest worry was if I were to be rendered un-cool at school By my Hello Kitty booster seat. Those field trip picnic days Of cherry Kool-Aid breath And trying to curl our pink wet tongues Like those lunch-packed Fruit Roll-Ups. Those truth-or-dare ...

    The scientific [no-one-cares-about-you] experts say that thunder is a fear-inducing natural phenomenon, reducing little kids and puppies alike to spasms of terror-laced quivering. But I say that a phobia of solar eclipses would make more sense. Last time I checked, thunder doesn't free...

    I fell from heaven, it’s true. Fell from the grace of God Into the ghetto of depression, A demonic angel in His sight. I would slip on my broken, raven-colored wings To spite the morning’s glee, Kiss my mirror image on the cheek, (Do you not kiss your only friend Goodbye before you l...

    I’m the king cobra In your heart, Poisoning it with my venom. Your heartbeat tick-tocks away, The timer to your swift demise. My fangs form a gruesome grin As I tighten my coils around your arteries, My champagne-colored eyes staring Into your mesmerized chocolate ones. Do you feel th...

    Our lips hum to the Floating music Hanging in the air and Dried paint splotches In the shape of slender fingers Spread lovingly down the Stripes of our backs and These round belly buttons Are jammed inconveniently Into our flat stomachs (Dude, we were born With a random hole) and My p...

    Would you be The machine That breathes life Into these collapsed lungs? The machine That beeps once For every miraculous beat Of this destroyed heart? The machine That lovingly Monitors these vital signs: Barely there, But still in existence? As I lay, Motionless, In this coffin ...

    Yes, I have problems. Sometimes I cry For no reason apparent to me. Just glancing out the window, Head perched on my pillow, Tears gliding across The freckled bridge of my nose, An outward display of seemingly Senseless emotion, Pent-up depression, Spilling down my cheeks like An overflo...

    Call the mortician, He’s run a year late; I was dead long ago, I had accepted my fate. My emaciated skeletal system can’t be repaired, The residues of my wasted brain can’t get any older. P.S. You can’t heal a broken spirit With a butterfly kiss to the shoulder. Who do you think...

    Ikhras, I tell you-shut up. But that doesn’t stop the flow of hate From dribbling down the corners of your mouth. Your angry words are left in a puddle at my feet, Waiting to make me slip. Waiting for me to fall. Ya habibi, my darling, you should know better: I’m stronger than that. Even...
