    Take care on these rainy days when the neon sign down the oil stained street— stained with our sweat and the blood of our brothers— is the only light, flashing and flickering into oblivion…   its sputtering sparks as the energy runs out, turning the air a crackled kind ...

    Baby don’t tell me I’m beautiful because we both know you only love me when I’m thin so I won’t tell you I’m digging my own grave out of skipped meals and you can pretend you don’t love the negative space more than you could ever love this body that once filled it and when you hug me d...

    Nothing is ever good enough for Man. He can’t simply be; he has to have an explanation. This is why the ancients prayed to their gods—their who, their why and their how—but it did them no good in the end. It didn’t save them, so when the contemporaries came along, they questioned these f...

    There is no moon to lighten her pallid face, nor stars to guide her to sleep as she waits for the light footfalls that would soon make their way toward her. Her body betrays no emotion even when the bed frame creaks and the mattress shifts as the featherweight of a girl climbs up next to her. She co...

    Come watch these cotton candy clouds float by. Together we will sit here, far below, on chocolate earth, beneath vanilla skies. Whether lemon-drop sunshine keeps you dry, or wintergreen mint chills you to the bone, Come watch these cotton candy clouds float by. The sherbert-sparkling stars...

    Everything comes down to science. You like to eat salty and sweet foods? It’s because they gave your body the most energy when we were wandering around gathering food, and you had to eat as much as possible, because who knows when your next meal was. You dream? Yeah, that’s to help store memorie...

    Life is a never ending series of “could have been”s. The same goes for the world. At any and every point in eternity, things could have gone differently. Where would we be then? Not here, I can certainly tell you that much. This holds true for all versions of history: scientific fact (the Big ...

    I am a runner, and have been for a while now. I've been through seasons and seasons of brutal training, and I've raced through mud and snow and blood and tears. I've run on a fractured knee and in lightening storms. I've raced up hills that can't be called hills and cliffs t...

    The biggest lie that I've ever heard told is "we'll still be friends." You know you won't. Without reason, you'll find yourself drifting and when you pass on a busy street not a single passerby will be able to tell that your love once shone so bright tha...

    Human blood is cheaper than the ink it takes to print these words— and just when i thought some part of me might have some worth, a reason to spill black across a page and to keep rivers of red running under my paper-white skin... but my words have more value that what's keeping my ...

    It took me fifteen years, four months and eleven days to figure why I hated a season named for the unstoppable, uncontrollable descent into winter. However that, there, is not at all the reason for my discomfort at all— rather, I am thrown by fall’s astounding beauty. See, in reality the brillia...

    I once saw them bury a man all alone, out beneath the willow. When I asked, "Why?" they told me, "you can't go to Heaven if you kill yourself." And for a long time i wondered why he didn't just wait to go to a better place. It's only now that i un...

    I watched a falling star trace out the constellations of your corners and your curves, landing in the shadows below your eyes. I followed as it outlined the soft hills and valleys of your lips, safe— In the embrace of summer, your heartbeat to keep my time, I wandered from your sandy hair...

    Await the calm within the storm, Where shrouded mists obscure all form. Winding paths to broken dreams, Nothing's ever as it seems. Boughs resigned to break or bend, Holding out long past the end. Shadows form and shadows fall, No rhyme or reason to it all. Shattered mirrors, shards of ...

    Ruby red, baby pink, flame orange, chrysanthemum yellow, blood red crimson, all spreading over the velvety, royal blue night like red wine on a tablecloth. Under it all are rolling hills, a small lake, and about fifty girl scouts singing on the beach. The dancing flames of the campfire light their f...
