    Don’t mind all these broken bones, They’re just left over from the last time that you left. Oh no, don’t move my heart, leave it right there on the sofa. Why the sofa? Well it’s not like I have anywhere else to put it. Um, just ignore my legs. They’re old and crippled I know, but ...

    We all bled last night Over paper anchors Holding us back from nothing, And phony stop signs Telling us all to pass go. In the end our wretched captain Declares himself righteous As the widow of all things Swallows my empty half And brutally declares me whole. And in the days of those king...

    I’ve been scribbled on this page, In seven shades of black and gray. My demented author signs his name, And all at once my colors fade. I’ve been cheated on this page, By seven shades of another name. Since my paper heart was broken, My pages haven’t turned the same. I’ve been ...

    I set my teddy bears loose in a glass house to see which ones would stay to suffer on account of my own foolish mistakes. Every time I threw stones at them They'd gather them all together and carve tears in all of the walls. And whenever I pulled my hair out They'd collect every single stra...

    Oh, Forever Kept,you are indeed someone's dearest, and indefinitely through love you keep drifting from your conscious. “But why? Why can't we be?” you ask. And what does it mean for us to have each other? We are the youngest of young, spinning the weakest of webs, -our pat...

    At long last, a night to us my dear, a time of love if that is, if that is, what any sound minded individual may dare call it. Such a pause, an invitation of silence, you must be expecting a compliment or something. Am I really to extol you this evening? Darling, your hair smells of mucus an...

    The crowds went wild when you fell apart. And I cried to see just how many people From all nations came to see the performance. The playwright was truly delighted at Just how fast the tickets sold out. The actors encouraged the audience To litter the stage with band aids All as a part of some...

    A half-carton of ice cream? Really? Well, you just killed the pancreas there buddy. I’d like you to know that all of us aren’t nearly As stuffed and bloated as you are. This was meant to be a family social event, But I suppose we can make this all about you. I’m so sorry to hear your mov...

    Darken the lights and leave me here, I need to soak up the atmosphere. So let me wander in the dark Into steel pipes and panel frames. I’ll grow accustomed to it all With a few fractures and toothaches. Every door that I think I can see Will be a new hole in your basement wall. It would be...

    When this is over the slaughter house will rot And as far as bacterial infections go- Salt will be the cause of them all. Doctors that make discoveries will die Along with the patients they were trying to cure. All the infections will stars off in their worst stages And the hurricanes will co...

    Let all the lies slide down Onto a glass floor of the second story. I'll paint it white and drill in tiny holes So that maybe you can pretend That it's just a popcorn ceiling. I'll darken the lights until these walls and barricades Become figments of your imagination. Whatever it takes is ...

    No one is going to save you So feel free to rot here Along with the termites And the holes in the wood… They seem to be pretty good at it. You wont know when the sun sets So if you said to someone “please help, she left me stranded here all night.” Well technically, you’d be lying. ...

    Somewhere around three a.m. in the morning I’ll overdose on what I mistook to be Just a simple strawberry punch fruit drink. Within a few minutes my friends will notice That I haven’t gotten up to dance yet. When they come to check on me they’ll also notice the slight fever. Once I co...

    The one thing I know is all I know Is spreading fear and waging wars All I know is what I’m for-fighting I don’t know what I’m fighting for The business of violence is promising When you have such a twisted attitude But the only true things are me and my sins And I found I’m the lesse...

    Forever behold the fountain of love But where is love now and where will it go? What happened to the fountain of love? What happened to the ebb and flow? Why don’t the waters quench my thirst? Why do the waters run in place? Why do these relationships always explode? Why do they tend to blo...

    If in the event this is successful, And I'm able to (and I quote) – “plug my wounds with words'' Then let me stamp every bitter thought that comes to my mind, on this page On these bandages. I can only hope that I'm not doubted by my uncertainties as I stop to wonder what it is e...

    I found myself in a dark empty room, -The doors sealed and the curtains drawn- trembling in the corner with a broken bulb, That was casting shadows on the wall. Each of the windows had their own face, through the wooden boards they’d speak. Each one had warned her not to stay, And made i...
