    Wishing to be like before. Silver-tipped tongues Spoke fountains of language- Physical longing in silent pauses. I now seek admiration; Tenderness dried up with time. You brought warmth in Endearing arms, Comfortable- But I forget if it was loving....

    Separate piles Of people. Wedding steeple Not allowed Because you're proud Of who you are. Why can't they move Past the different? Desperate to change, "Your kind is strange" They place the blame On your life. Some claim It themselves....

    The sun rests in a cloudless sky Overlooking the mountain's shoulder. Lilac petals die of thirst. Marble is power, hard, unforgiving, But gradually, boulders tumble to their slippery end, Becoming sand. At night, the wind whispers through the crevasses. My only view is that of th...

It is blurry, brittle and stained, but the subject of the photo is clear: a young girl in an autumn dress, wearing a smile so big it’s contagious. Her tiny hands are grasping the railing behind her as she spi...

    What can be more simple than black against white? A zebra, a penguin, a newspaper, a poem, A black and white photo Of a pale girl with dark hair And black contrasting with the white of her eyes. She sits on a stool, in a café, all alone. The flash of the camera makes her gaunt cheeks gl...

    I endure you and you endure me. I know you like your tea strong, And you drink it in my NatGeo cup. I want to wake up to your soundless sips, Even though I’d ruin the moment with slurps. You look stunning in your button down, And your big eyes laugh at me As I run my fingers through y...

The lights are dim except for behind the counter where the bartender is drying glasses. Andrew sits at the counter on a barstool.] Andrew: A G&T, please. [Ba...

    The Museum of Modern Art in Los Angeles held an exhibit in 2011 featuring urban art, and city dwellers celebrated the modern masterpieces. However, visitors could also see a fresh coat of paint outside on the back wall of the museum, where unwelcome graffiti had been hidden. What's the difference be...

    After awkward shrugs and several 'why-nots', I still stiffened when you hand cupped my cheek. We weren't in love or Even good friends but We were caught in Mutual tragedy. You stand brave and tall and skinny and beautiful, But when you inched closer–and My breath hitched a...
