    He spoke of love, and commitment. And also the lusting passion he reached to over come His breath was hot on my face As I spewed forth my own list of regrets I painted my life as one of happiness, His masterpiece that of pain, yet overcoming Vulnerability fills his vacant eyes And his lips ar...

    I said I loved you Only a bite of time before I said im done Goodbye (or farewell, my love) You begged Then you fled And stole my heart (wrenching it, beating, bleating, blood still aflow) You still grasp it Me, waiting for you to replace it But you toy with mixed emotions And dance aroun...

    "What is love?" I lay with my head in her hands Content in knowing we were watching the same sky We had worked out our life's plans Knit together with all the reasons why "I don't know" she spoke Leaning in to look at my face Her eyes looked night soaked And co...

    There was a girl. It does not matter what her name was. In fact she had no name, no name for the purpose of this story. She just was that girl. That girl, she was tired. She was tired of many things. Things that pushed her down. They felt heavy, very heavy. Some days, that girl didn’t deal. Som...

    He set up barricades between his eyelashes. Built brick by brick by brick To stop my loving gaze Then he looked away As if the wall were not enough Yet in internal conflict, his mania for me over came him He spoke of instinct A primal desire And I thought of him as a beast as he hung over...

    I spent exactly 3 minutes And 47 seconds Searching for you I stood in the post office In front of the counter That holds the antique stamps Yellowing, curling Taking in age I was watched by the Kidnapper, The boy who broke in on a dare One too many times, The man who forgot to pa...
