    A clump of brown dead leaves peaks out of the green. Soon it will spread like fire eating away the last remnants of summer. If only it were enough, the sun, the rain to keep the cold at bay. Oh why can’t I stay? My feet buried in sand, skin bathed in sunshine, time forgotten. Mind ...

    I can’t help notice the beauty in the uneven branches, the loose string on a worn towel, the wrinkles on old hands or in a tee shirt thrown carelessly on the ground. My mom telling me to pick it up, but it is so perfect like ripples in water, the wind in the trees, a bush, half dead, h...

    On clear glass tear drops drip and cloud my view of skyline. Falling, falling like a chorus of tiny fireflies in the night. One by one, piece by piece they fall till the whole world glistens like gold....

    Heels break into soft waves looming forward like white tipped mountains on the horizon. They ripple at my feet, circling in and out again like a scared animal. Footprints fade away into the blue. As a small mud covered boy works tirelessly to make a castle. While I stand, but a still dr...

    If only I hadn't fallen down the rabbit hole. If only I were normal sized. Not too big or small, disproportionate. I stand deflated, microscopic, lost among the leaves. The flowers talking, mocking laughing. I am apart -an Alice. If only I could stop myself from eating cake. I w...

    It feels like summer. Sun rays suffocating, trying to break through black wings like a crow’s I do bear. But beneath the surface, petals, blue velvet reaches up as sun rays inhale. Blue and yellow embrace into green. If only color could overtake the darkness, fill the empty spaces ...

    The words slip out of reach, confused, misunderstood. They erupt in flames. Gray like invisible ghosts, lifting the veils of your heart. So I can see through the demon mask plastered on my face. See the pain so tangible that I could swallow it like silver moonlight staining the Black...

    I step, slender feet over broken stone. Hot sand steaming into spirits no longer alive, Yet not ready to escape their cage of despair. Pieces of dried ash, Remnants of castles, now worthless clumps of fairy dust long lost of their charms. Broken pieces of beer bottles, some too small to see...

    She sits in the rain, feet dry under red umbrella. Clouded blue eyes cascade their shadow on the gray sky, blank like starlight wasting away. Empty sheets. Tainted day. What can he say? Day by day, she looks so ageless, beautiful. Yet in the clouds, her pupils melt. Her skin, he...

    The first step molds into the white like a porcelain fingerprint. If only change would not shatter me. The child could still play. The lion take its prey. The artist touch the paper. I could build a world in white...

    Sunlight dances on the white stained sheet. If only it could melt, mold into me like sweet honey dipped in tea. I could stay here forever. Red tipped trees. Stained lips. Skin submerged, invisible....

    Winter falls on frozen Earth, stained boots. Snowflakes intertwine in silver beads. Fall onto snow angle. Outstretch my arms in white. Soft as angle wings. Cold as metal fluttering down like silver beads, pulling on an empty locket...

    I sneak under the droplets. My head an empty basket stuffed in an over-sized coat. I want to break through the waves. The raindrops falling falling down my face. It’s all there. Each face, fingertip, Each living breath consumed. I can hear the heart beat. The Earth calling through th...

    I sleep, Deep in waters of tepid night. Silver sliver of a moon drips into milky darkness. White as fairy sliver. Her dress apiece of night air. Each stitch a star to wish upon, when sun is gone. Night a monster’s claw to pry open children’s minds and torment them with twisted dreams...

    In mourning, open dewy eyes. Broken lilac petals, like rain filled cups mask thorns. Yet memory drips on sunrise. I remember her. If only I could talk to her. Reach my hand through pink petals, dirt. I would hug her for one last time. I would lie with her. Stay until it was night. ...

    Tiny black head, a speck in an ocean of bladed grass looks forward to view a life's last light in midst of giant's shadow. Firm foot fractured in flood of poison spray. Family torn in toxic tears. A battle's shame lost in rain. For only hands and feet remain on brick walkway. To be ca...

    Oh princess with your dainty feet, would you dare take off your shoes to peer on top of lily pad afloat in toxic stream? Would you notice a handsome prince, if he were nothing but a common frog? Oh princess, would you dare dirty your dress? Bend over to feel his green scaly skin? Would you ...

    Jewel uncovered. Gleaming in rock, an ocean of melting crystal. Scaley skin, unfit, misjudged. Beauty dressed in spider webs. A fish’s tail....

    I sit on the edge of existence. Eyes peeking through red drapes. Rough bark reaching over bare arms like dry skin. The gray sky sits silently on empty wood, frozen confiscated earth. It hurts to feel. The window peers at me. My eyes, my body magnified under it’s lens. The red...

    A pigment of pastel ripples in liquid embrace. The sun, the crumpled leaves melt inward. The dock, the wooden cottage slip into the water. The elderly maples skip stones. They drop like starlight on horizon. The red leather couch meets woolen socks. A window peeks through the drapes. A...

    I wish I were a mirror, a flat piece of glass. So I could watch the world go by. See each speck of hair, eyelash, teardrop and not be noticed. So others would not laugh, point fingers, question why I was alone. They would look at me and see nothing, but themselves. They would see tha...

    A heart is a weighted pendent. So long it stays hidden under skin, bones, sadness, grief. Until someone finds it Takes it away. You watch it float up up Like a red velvet balloon Until it pops and you are left to put the pieces back together. Grief. So long is it hidden inside your ...

    Sadness bubbles over flow metal pot. Wooden ladle sits empty as a woman’s heart half-submerged in boiling pot Rain, a phantom of white snow awaken teardrops. Pull over red rain coat. Shoes of filthy flora knee deep in garden. Orchids stained in teardrops like dewy eyelashes blow...
