    Sometimes events can lead to an inevitable state. After all, human control does have its set limits. We dominate our lives with fate occurring in fits and small bits. Its laughable how hard we pull at the reins of uncertainty, Our bold impertinence belittled in a system so faulty. Fai...

    I remember how it used to be My best friend, how I loved you so My secret keeper, best among all What have we become now? Who is that stranger in the hall That sees through me, past me To look someone else’s way In many ways you are the same In appearance and in speech But how can thi...

    I wrote this poem for you Because you told me to Now I sit at this desk day and night Shaking my head, trying to get the words just right Tossing, changing and altogether rearranging These words that come in different shapes and sizes until the floor is strewn with nonsensical phrases. What...

    You said it would be better to try and fail a thousand times Than wonder at what could have been You said “Don’t give up! Hold your head up high, This is your chance at greatness, The one you’ve dreamt so long about.” But I’m just so tired, my back is hunched from bending over b...

    My dog woke up and saw me; he spoke his peace and left. The cat came too to ask, In what hour the sun king would arrive to grace his noble face. I rolled my eyes, yawned a minute, groaned my sighs, and finally slept on. In a sleeping state I heard, small feet make tight lipped movement...

    The night snow fell It was midnight It was silent The sky was cast in an unnatural orange hue From the city’s bright street lights It was then I stepped out barefoot Leaving a small trail of prints to mark my small presence I ran and ran on the clean white blanket Until my feet were bo...

    Him: I remember the first time I saw you And I knew, it had to be you No one else would do With heart in mouth And tongue in hand I could only smile awhile This girl, this girl, is meant to be mine forever Pounding heart, Nervous hands Wide eyes look with wonder at Angel eyes And ligh...

    The afternoon is immersed in yellow waves Speckled gold leaves waver to the wind's rustle Ruby red, ruby red Sapphires hang in splendid orbs From leaves with heart-shaped faces Flirtatious wings beat, nestled above in branches to sing Half written phrases of heart songs Plump children wit...

    Pass once by the wheel of fate It spins, it turns to what end we dare not ­contemplate The center unfolds, past futures revealed A queen, a beggar, a soldier, a child exposed Royalty, riches, an empire that kneels to needless whim Power stemmed by responsibility as bright eyes dim Forget mo...

    All girls are flowers, Resplendent and charming, young and headstrong; Heedless to the words of careful tenders called mothers. Raised from the virtues of family soil; innocence blinds right from wrong. Girls’ affections are easily misplaced when seduced by lovers’ gentle whispers. Suitor...

    Remember how it was, My heart an open book; When you would cheat and read ahead To say the things I wished most to hear, And I would jump and yell for joy, At the realization that you, Were more than just any ordinary boy. Remember how it was, My heart closed shut; When I would constant...

    I know not how he bore the loss of her. To live on as life’s meaning swift departs. His mad heart must’ve bled from the torture. Is agony all memory imparts? Her scent, her laughter, lingered all around. A broken man sits, void of emotion; Drink numbing the longing of lovesick...

    I’ve known you since the age of six, I was selfish then, a real piece of work; always pushing and shoving you til’ your tears ran dry. Don’t ask me why I hurt you, because I’d answer with a lie. Looking back on those days of youth, I realize what a prize you are, Our friendship so e...

    Oh’ this long cherished wish, held tightly in the bosom of my occluded heart. Hold fast, hold strong before the wild spring of contempt; when dreams are sown and hope is grown. Ravens encircle above, a halo of blackness to light the sky. As hope sprouts, malicious eyes devour the soft young...
