    I am a girl of simple pleasures. I love rain, books, tea, fireplaces, art, warm blankets… I don’t need much. When I was younger, I wanted to find a homeless person, and give them tea. I thought it would make them so happy to drink some. Afterall, it was an ethereal drink. I...

    Many people have called me a prodigy, but is that what I am? Yes, I did write a book in fourth grade; it was about a PRINCESS for God’s sake. (And it was only 40 pages long) I wrote another one in fifth grade. That one was about mermaids and a cranberry-sauce eating shark. I think...

    The gray sky lingered on the edge of being a thunderstorm and a tornado. Ashen faces surrounded me as the ebony trees seemed to lean in to hear my fate, all struggling to lend a branch towards us. Not a soul was present save mine, yet all around I felt loved. Men and women, all in black corsets...

    The metal skeletons in their Automaton car, spun around, and spotted from afar, The only place fate had ever known… There was there was steam there was grime, wind and a chime All around the grunting hills There was fake, and alive, and hair, and dye, no one spoke to a soul! The wa...

    I was in a big town, Filled with salt, and people. There was a little boy sitting by himself, eating a piece of bread. He looked so alone, and yet; He was unafraid. He had a content smile, as if the world was now complete. He knew that he was protected. I watched as thieves who easi...

    Protect me Sir Shadow, With your cloak night. I don’t want to stay, I don’t want to fight! Good man, I doth beg, For a safe haven soon, For I cannot stand, in the light of the moon. Please pull me home, just make it quick! I can sense morning, twisted and thick! The flo...

    The mirror is unforgiving, it gives me a sneer. I know I shouldn’t think this way! But I do. There’s a little bit of fat, right under my arm. It just sits there, deadweight on my imperfect body. Why can’t I look like Heidi Klum? Mila Kunis, or Barbie? Maybe it’s the airbrush I need, but...

    Hush, Hush, the pendulum swings Close your eyes, enraptured by dreams. Hush, Hush, the pendulum swings Close your eyes, enraptured by dreams. Let sleep, Cast her spell. I hope and pray you shall sleep well. Hush, Hush, the pendulum swings Close your eyes, enraptured by dreams. ...

    I love sitting down by the pond, no one else around. Just me and nature alone. It makes me feel as if I’m part of something other than drama. The serene landscape just melts all the stress away like candle wax. The way my weeping willow just skims the surface, dancing like a fairy makes my hear...

    The mirror whispers words of welcome, today is your day! But when the bus rolls up, the morning turns gray. "You're fat." You're ugly." Your day has been ruined, as you cry on the stairs. On your way home, you think of their words. You wonder why they h...

    Won't you help the bleeding butterfly? The one with cut wings? Won't you comfort it? Tell it of the beauty it brings? Please help the butterfly, it doesn't know what to do! I don't want it to die, it breathes like me and you! Why doesn't it know how lovely i...

    I hear a soothing melody, whispered in my ears. I listen to it intently, as it dries my tears. I can hear the angels, singing through the years. I follow it now, guided by the broken fears. I know what it's doing, carrying me away. But I have waited for this each and every ...

    If I could sit down with anyone in the world and talk to them, That person would be my past self. I would ask her why she cried when the girls made fun of her, Why she thought she needed their help. I could tell her not to weep at night, I truly understand. I would kiss her forehead, hold ont...

    An Artist paints his soul, With a little brush. A Mother gives her words, Bidding a babe hush. But I am a writer, and I'm a little strange. I take the world I have, and give it a bit of change....

    Quick lights steps, From here to there, I have never seen it, And neither do I care. The swan of grace, Spins down the road. I have never met you, But you're sweet I am told. Tranquility darling, Is not known to me. And though it visits often, I do not wish to speak....

    Beauty is a man made label, Love is not. Beauty expresses attractiveness, Love recalls the souls desires. Beauty is something we hope to achieve, Love just comes naturally. Beauty is filled with trials, Love is too, But the difference is that it lasts....

    Tick tick tick tick tick... I hear the clock inside my heart. It turns and winds, cranks and starts. Tick tick tick tick tick... The bronze on my arm, the gold in my skin, Are all the parts of my new Zeppelin. Tick tick tick tick tick... Do they know the Zeppelin speaks? I grunt an...

    Broken shards of iron glass, Litter the floor and contrast. Black and white, the truth I see, Yet the break is killing me. That was my love, so strong and bold. Now it sleeps in dungeons cold. I do not want to believe, For what I had did relieve. The pain is back, in bouts again, So...

    Steampunk gears, Shift and grind, Trying to read, Through my mind. The bolts in my knees, Scratch a bunch. My creator turns the key With a hunch. It's just as he Expected, Though hasn't Yet corrected. I have a few screws Loose in my head. Lucky for me, I am not yet de...

    It was cold outside, snow and hail around. I wanted to feel warmth, but no one was in town. I begged and pleaded for a place to reside, And found a woman, named Mrs. Kind. She let me in, warmed me up. Handed me, a steaming cup. She passed me on a deserted road, But she isn'...

    I hold onto my horse, A carousel mess. The ants are crawling All over my dress. It wasn't too rough When I stole it last week. But now the paint's peeling In a long streak. I needed it then, To keep myself sane, But treasures are So often my bane. It's my loveable pe...

    What an Urban Hello No Smile, a hand shake. A mistake I made, to give you my heart for An Urban Hello (oh-oh-oh-oh) x2 I saw you standing there, so proud and cold. Yet you drew me in, like water from a well. Like a statue, you stood there, and offered An Urban Hello (oh-oh-...

    I saw you in the bathroom, writing on the stalls. I went in next, looked at the markered walls. I was sad, for the words were meant for me. I turned the lock and sat down. How could she? "What a drama queen, Olivia and her fake smile. Doesn't she know she didn't fool us by a ...
