    I kiss out of curiosity I kiss out of complete dishonesty I kiss out of a need for control I kiss to try to patch a hole I’ll bite your neck and steal your breath You’ll be my wine, I’ll be your death I’ll warm your skin but not your soul I kiss out of a need for control...

    He kissed me black and blue. No, literally. My mouth was bruised and swollen, and I had to lie to my mom when she asked why. I told her I hit my lip on the car door, and she believed me. I mean, why shouldn’t she? People don’t get ink-blotted lips from snogging, like they’d ...

    You never really wanted me But Oh! god you could have. We could have been something Something incredible Instead of what we are: Secrets hidden under floorboards and shoved into drawers Unsaid words filtered through a strainer and then washed down the drain Unnoticingly Intentionally. Y...

    You are the summer sunflowers with your golden face and your tall body. You bury your seeds inside my ribs and your roots strangle every breath out of my lungs And your leaves grow up my throat and out of my mouth And out of my voice. You are the winter wind with your frozen words and ...

    CHAPTER 1 Jasper Blackmore had always been a curious child. As a very young boy, rather than join the other children in their monotonous games, he preferred to escape to a quiet place, a barren place. There, he would pull out a book or perhaps a notepad and sketch. He didn’t much care for the c...

    I love you like the pages of a book, delicately pressed to each other between the covers, stamped with black markings, footnotes in your corners, where others have analyzed. Open at times, closed at others Readable, but only if I know your language, your witty tongue and sharp thought. I lov...

    I dip my paintbrush into the red paint and ever so gently stroke the canvas painting on your mouth. The blue of your eyes next: Cerulean, mixed with just a hint of green. Then the little sprinkle of freckles across your ripe cheeks, and when I am finished, you are the most beautiful work of ...

    There were always four; The girls with smiling mouths and sad eyes The girls who put joints and cigarettes and bottles To their lips and sucked it all in. The girls with flowers in their hair And rings on their fingers And rubber bands On their wrists. They played all night and slept all m...

    I’m sitting on this Thanksgiving A day I should be grateful. Happy. A day I should feel blessed. Optimistic. But I’m not. All I can think of, All I can feel is the sharp, powerful fear The fear that makes my hands shake And my Thanksgiving meal creep up my throat. I can’t breathe....

    I put you in a box. A little box, and closed it tight Because if you ever did escape You'd come and torture me at night. You'd sink into my head My love, my help, my friend And crying of all our hopes And how each one did end. You'd come in banging pots and pans Singing w...

    Benny Oaks stops at the very top of the green hill, where a lonesome tree stands and casts a long shadow over a flat spot on the hill. From where he has stopped, he can see the town sprawl before him, the people milling about like ants on an ant farm. He lays a red-and-white-checkered blanket on...

    “Max, what is it?” My sister Lynn asked, irritated. “C’mon you’ve been acting weird all week. What’s been up?” “Okay, but please. Don’t freak out,” I said. “Promise me.” Lynn lifted one of her thin, perfectly sculpted eyebrows at me, and said slowly, “Okay... but that...

    He could hear them, twelve footsteps, maybe more. And then the principal’s sharp voice cut through the stale air of his cell. “Yes, that’s him,” she said. “The difference. I assume he and the Jarek boy situation are connected. Go on, he won’t fight you.” This is it, he thought to hi...
