    You said I was your pine tree, Tall and strong, With ballerina branches Swaying in the wind. Overflowing with sweet-smelling needles, The soft kind, That enveloped me like a faux fur coat. You'd lay beside my trunk And whisper dear nothings into my bark. Mindlessly dissecting fallen ...

    Today the clouds Envelop me, (a weightless veil that clings to my lungs) Whispering sweet lullabies (intoxicating and sweet) Today the air Infests me, (buzzing little bugs creeping across my skin) Conquering my body (schizophrenic revival) Today the air Drowns me, (a kind of d...

    naked, newborn robins take refuge in the awkward embrace of my hipbones. they screech, these blood curling, vein straining screams; crying out in hunger, for a love they're desperate to receive. not only do the selfish little bastards expect me to gather their food, i must CHEW...

    her eyes were cold, dark, misty, and blue, as the wind nipped at her nose and her arms grew numb. the fresh fallen snow hugged her silhouette, like a fallen angle. the blood soaked sweater, like a velvet robe. the numbness crept through her veins, to her hips, to her toes. ...

    If I never wake, lay beside my fresh corpse and keep me warm. Guard me from the creepy crawlies who want to drag my soul, with their sticky toothpick arms, away from my rightful place, next to you. Sing me haunted lullabies to keep me high on my sorrow. Promise me you'll love me ...
