    The cold night air Allows our breath to be visible Below orange-yellow streetlights And a clouded winter sky We step on a snow covered Sidewalk, leaving footprints Side-by-side amongst The footprints of others To pass along this way, And I realize suddenly That I am smiling... And I never...

    Don't say 'I love you' If you don't mean it Don't lie to me like you do Between clenched teeth And averted eyes Don't change your mind So quickly, dear Is this not what you wanted? Am I not what you wanted? I told you not to say it But you said it, didn't...

    I see you standing there On the title of my kitchen Floor I forget to breathe For a moment and hope you don't Notice The way I choose My words oh-so Carefully When I speak, trying Not to stutter, to say the right Words To make you smile, See your eyes light up, maybe a Laugh An...

    Purple hearts Written on tiny scraps of paper Littering the bottom of your locker Overflowing onto tiled floor It started as one An innocent purple organ Sketched hastily onto paper For only you to see One turned into a hundred To match how fast my heart beats When I see your orange ha...
