    I wish my head was as empty as my heart, because I am trapped behind my eyes and the only exit is my mouth, but my mind has become so warped that even I don’t want to hear what I am saying. Even I, primarily I, am hurt by what I am saying. I’m sorry, I wish I was stronger, strong enough...

    I remember falling overboard I fell right off the ship into the cold and dark fjord in my own tears I slipped. The water wrapped around me and slowly down I sank I knew that I was drowning on that lonely riverbank. By mistake I’d tied an anchor and wrapped the rope around my heart and as...

    I should probably be much more sad because right now life is really bad, or much more happy. Much more sad because her cancer is lethal and who knows if heaven’s real and it will probably happen soon. Because they will probably get divorced and I will probably have to choose but they’re...

    She held a penny in her fist a timely treasure that I’d missed It gleamed with some eager intent, trilled the lucky tenor of one cent. I had a need for that single sum, but my penny problems had just begun; for I found a penny of my own. With copper radiance, it shone. Find a penny, pick i...

    I’m in love. I’m in love with my full tank of gas and the knob of my radio turned towards the right. I’m in love with my brown sunglasses and the sunset and the hair blowing behind my face. I’m in love with the man walking his dog the little boys playing ball in the street the woman o...

    A single tear slid down my face As I turned to see the moon Then slipped with tranquil grace into the silver pool The water wrapped around me clinging to my skin Trying hard to drown me fighting its way in I let a breath escape my lips As I turned to see the moon And felt my body sinki...

    Only to live yet another day Only to smile once more, Only to last while my hair turns gray Even if it leaves me unsure, Unsure of my future Afraid of my past Likely to falter Hopeful to surpass The sorrow, the lonesome The failures, the fears To survive to autumn And live out ...
