    It’s been a while Since my fingertips have brushed These smooth keys For anything more than mashing words together To form a paper About some such nonsense So I think I’ll start Where I am It’s easy to it in the creases Underneath your eyes And the way your hands Trace my skin Yo...

    It's easy enough to pretend That you're simply another figure Built from rough shapes and smeared paint Part of the seemingly solid block Of human mass that flood The streets and hallways Souls that rush to flood the daily backdrops Until the coarsely hew edges of your skin And the...

    The first time I ever heard The hum of your saxophone Blown by soft, dark lips I realized That though many falsities Continuously click through my teeth One that I can’t dare utter Is that I do not love you Throughout the year I’ve known you I’ve seen your inevitable demise Hazed...

    Why don’t I just have at it then? Rip the lines to fluttering sheds And leave them lying beneath my feet So that while my steps will contain Worn bits of truth My head won’t dare obtain it For my words are hollow enough To take long flight into straining ears That feed minds ignorant eno...

    Do not trifle with the sound of breathing It’s a dance, my lover, as I inhale Your stunning eyes forcing My breath back into my lungs My tongue tracing The letters of your name As I run it over my lips In nervous anticipation of your touch I drink in your words like wine Giggling d...

    My skeleton hands dangled From thin barbwire strands Ever curling around the thinnest wood They pressed deep into my veins Forcing red and rough into my system I used to drag these rust snakes Along the dirt Watching them leave Hissing fragments along the dirt and pavement Purposeless...

    I find myself asphyxiating Confined within the murky smoke of deceit Shadows screaming through my system Begging for their release Hands bound around my mouth Clawing for lost phrases Hidden between my teeth Memories scratching through my mind Flashing brightly, tearing at the color held wi...

    Why do we watch the sunrise so eagerly? Dedicating those few still moments To witness vibrant power pound at the sky Shaking the stairs from their slumber Chasing away another heavy night Why do we wait for the light content sigh? Before we lace up our hopes tightly And scrape our thoughts be...

    On that first day you were so clear The light gleamed through your palms And the lonely birds decided to rest Within the confines of your eye sockets Our hands first mingled together with bleach We determined that the silence could no longer be endured Because silence is meant for more Then j...

    I tried so very hard to make it Damn near impossible to envision Small, shriveled hands Pounding ruthlessly on A thick, unmoving back But how can I? When muffled cries and moans of agony Spill from beneath shaking hands Retelling the horrid deeds Committed thoughtlessly Over a vast and un...

    Do you remember the time When you use to have something Legitimately worth smiling about? Do you remember when You dutifully took the pledge And proudly pinned the small red While your eyes shone brightly And just for a fraction of a second You actually believed your own promises? And you c...

    I watch you from across the way And begin to asphyxiate As my heart folds in on itself Deep, ripping pain erupts in my chest Flooding my every thought, my every motion It was bound and bound well To happen Remembering that stupid burgundy jacket You always buried yourself up in Allowing not...

    Outlined in dark, muddled in green Your eyes told me that same story Your mouth always refused to say Meek in every decision Futilely trying to explain your actions Never ceasing, never ending Always running; that’s your excuses Maybe if you tried You might be able to Keep Up With Y...

    The once sleeping beast So content, so sure we thought Meticulously eviscerates our city And all of our love Disemboweling what’s left From a thousand conscious souls Who couldn’t afford the dirty note Hastily tapped to the door As if to say It wasn’t me, but I’m still sorry Oil ca...

    I stare out Into the icy abyss of ignorant lives And contemplate my own meager existence Of the time spent Sucking down packaged poison And embrace the blatant feelings Of corrupt brain cells with sheer disgust And a discontented soul Then there are the shattered moralities That wail an...

    A year ago today You were gone and I lingered Whispers flow indignantly around Crowded hallways and silent classrooms The world was spinning in cascading colors of blue, grey, and resignment We both fell hard Bound by poisonous snared That snaked interchangeably across our paths That left us...

    Upbeat and perpetually grinning Red dominating our faces and iron maiden our ears Hands meshing together clumsily And in what appears to be minutes lost to me My hands dangle hesitantly by my side And I permit your hands and lips To dance were they wish Leaving me scarred with your mark Your...

    Those lines, dawning the page With such elegance, yet rebuke For the milky white upon which they are set The crawl, tenebrous in their act To asphyxiate meaning Yet the curves and twirls Form so much more in the Suggestive mind That one mere character Could shape the very life Of one�...

    At five in the morning, as his wife cooked breakfast, John Milton Roebuck Sr. began his morning. He got up and shuffled down the hall. Taking out his violin, he serenaded his wife as he did every morning, playing a song that went rolling across the Oklahoma hills. As he played, he closed his eyes be...

    He steps forward coyly, a sneer on his face Swaying he removes his high hat Gawkily bows and burnishes his clasps The crowd is perplexed as he stands awkwardly He waits for a moment, nothing more And drops his mouth till his lips dangle Just above his misshapen knees Tenebrous smog begins to ...

    Lost myself in a smoke screen vision Unable to discern my common sense From the blatant truth Hell clawed its way under my skin Finding foothold in my confusion, hatred, and selfishness Deranged, I walked through the halls Feeling lost at my utmost Until I found a dark light Guiding me insid...

    Deranged and stumbling, the young man drags himself through the dank city streets. Bloodshot eyes and shaking hands prove to the civilians around him that he either has drained one too many shot glasses or hasn’t had enough. The hidden scanner clicks and whirs, checking for any stolen items as he ...
