    There comes a time in your life when you feel like you're on autopilot every day. You do all that is required of you, you have friends, maybe a girlfriend, an alright family. You have the potential to create an amazing future. You have all of these things, yet you can't find happiness in a...

    She lives in the past that old woman her golden years lived full and well Every morning she wakes and dons the same flower-printed dress he gave to her many birthdays ago It reminds her of the better years they spent together She still makes him breakfast steak and eggs tea with honey ...

    Have you ever felt like a dandelion? That at one time, you were strong and bright. Seems like that was just last week. Now you're colorless. Bland, even. You're holding together, but sooner or later the wind is going to blow you down. Parts of you will drift away and settle in...

    What is forever? Is it a specific span of time that one can label? Is it a word for how long school hours seem to take? Is it possible? I know of forever. Forever is achieving your dreams between every morning and night. Forever is how long love is supposed to last. Forever is you....

    I have apples in my orchard Their leaves are made of gold The apples smell like candy and the apple trees are old I pick them every autumn as the blazing sun sets low I shine them on my t-shirt to make the apple skins glow The yellow ones are sweetest but the reds make tasty pies My favori...

    I must admit, my darling, you're a charm. Never will you be the causer of harm. You chase away my blackness with a smile. When it's hard, you go the extra mile. On lonely days you keep me company, And when you can't I wait in misery. These times are tough, but honey, you should ...

    I itch from the inside out I itch to be alive There's a reason my mind lies In a ditch on a back road Too tired to sift for gold I itch to lay still I itch like a wool sweater On a hanger in the attic Of a stuffy house I itch to scratch To relieve the whiplash Of a crash dummy lifest...

    Could I apologize to myself about the way I am if I couldn't see what it was I had to apologize for? I hurt you hurt me hurt me hurt them. I cannot decide who I really am. If I really am human am I man enough to scream? Have I had enough to quit? I wish I could possess the mora...

    Sorrowfully I wandered down the Road of the Unknown A stormy chase was brewing I couldn't find my home Passionately I explored the Road of the Unknown I discovered rock piles A jewel, a gem, a stone Dutifully I tried to map the Road of the Unknown Failed men thought me daring The att...

    What if I ran to you In the middle of the night What if I couldn't make it What if I deserted you In the middle of a fight What if I couldn't take it What if you loved me more On a midsummer night's eve What if I couldn't top it What if you found romance with a girl who...

    I am leaving to follow you. We don't want to have to stay. Unsure of where you're going, I will follow anyway. The longer that you linger, The longer that we wait. Behind you on this open road We will not arrive late. I could be counting footsteps As I keep up with your stride. I...

    Are my lucky dice still lucky? Maybe. I'm still here. I'm still rolling doubles. Lucky number eight. All my chances are displayed before me on this table. It is impossible to lose. The cubes I have in my hand like I control their outcomes, like they have a choice how to land...

    I hope that I find you someday when the acid in my veins has changed back to blood. I hope that my cruelty is replaced with the ability to help myself instead of hurt for release. I hope I will learn to pray to Him much larger than myself so I can solidify life's meaning. I hope that w...

    I loathe the spiders that creep behind my eyelids When the sun disappears they steal my sleep They crawl, pierce, and sting making me unable to see I can't stop the spiders from leaving a trail of spider bites down my cheeks There is no other way of describing how I weep When they ti...

    I want a mind to love a hand to hold someone to tickle me silly I want to share a bed to cuddle for warmth a lover to kiss goodnight I want someone to care to listen and fight an angel to show me the way I want a number to call a 100th date a Daniel to love for life...

    My loose brown spirals bob with the bounce in my step. They match your eyes, both light and dark. Always in my face, they fly in the wind and frizz in the sun. But only you tangle my curls....

    I am the victim of blackest night, following shadows on the even more shadowy asphalt, fearful of the white faces peering out at me from behind trees. Beasts alert me with the crunching of leaves, and the pound pounding of my footfalls on pavement alerts them of me. Tiny pinpricks of nea...

    I miss you I miss how you smell Friday morning after a long night I miss how your teeth show when you smile big, the flash of your eyes I miss your fingers playing my sides I miss trying to smush myself into you when we sit on the couch; 'I love you' fights I miss your lips I miss ...
