    Homeless And the sky, it cried and sighed wind The wind blew bitterly, the essence of cigarettes Cigarets falling, like forgotten matches onto cracking concrete Concrete, rivers of gasoline flowing through it, ribbons of faith Faith in the form of black winged birds They flew overhead like f...

    “And so they all lived happily ever after? She didn’t die.” the angel pointed out to God. “No. She didn’t,” God replied. “Yet.” “Wait. She survived. And she’s not going to be able to dance again. Her beauty is gone. Isn't that enough? Isn't that what you wanted?” ...

    After that, Jenna and Rafi were friends. Rafi was ashamed to admit to Jenna that he hadn’t just been “passing by”, that he had watched her dance every night for years. And so, he didn’t. They talked about other things: school, friends, who was dating whom, their favorite bands, and other mea...

    He couldn’t move for a few seconds. He watched Jenna lying there. Was she breathing? He could detect the small movements of her chest moving up and down. She was alive. In a trance, he reenacted the dream he had had so many times. Breathing hard, he ran around the building to the entrance. The bri...

    He wondered sometimes, how many people knew. How many knew that Jenna, the girl who wore baggy cargo pants, chains, and black t-shirts with band logos that no body had ever heard of, how many people knew what she was really like inside. He wondered if anyone knew that the girl who drove to school in...

    The suburbs of New York rested in a peaceful haze of evening fog. Houses lay in perfect squares, curtains left open, their insides illuminated with light. Smoke drifted up from chimneys. The streets were lost and empty and the moon hung above in a frozen web of stars. Thoughts and prayers travele...

    Remember the airplane? The soft, too soft cushioned seats, the itchy blankets, the windows that looked like droopy, stretched out eyes. The stewardess asked you what you wanted to drink and you asked for coffee. It woke you up a little from this dream world, this imaginative flight on air. You strug...

    In the Fall we drifted like colored leaves, Our bodies cast echoes on foggy sidewalks, The days grew shorter as did our lives. I dreamed of change and jolted rains, The summer had made us jaded. Thousands of leaves lie forgotten On badly paved roads Hundreds of dreams rest unspoken Drowni...

    In the dark it's like a black and white TV There's no difference between truth and honesty Colors are undiscernable, tones are similiar So don't raise your voice it won't sound familiar I'll admit the artifical light just aint the same As the sound of our voice and t...

    Verse 1: Those stars we gazed at are still there Can they answer why life ain't fair? Hanging above so ominously` Staring down on my misery Verse 2: Somedays I wish those stars had faded Staring at them made me jaded That one right there reminds of you Of the things you said that weren...

    Growing Young Verse 1: Looking in the mirror I see wrinkles on my face Bags under my eyes here I wish I could erase Verse 2: I wish I didn't feel so scarred I wish I could replace My skin full of rips and tears Salty tears that left a trace Chorus 1: Some complain of getting olde...

    Looking in the mirror I see wrinkles on my face Bags under my eyes here I wish I could erase Behind me are my past times Reversed and reflected Searching for reason and rhyme In painful introspection Some complain of getting older I complain of getting young Maturity is a molder Innoc...

    The world was chilly in the morning and the windshield fogged up like clouds floating above still water. I pressed the defrost button and the car responded to the twist of my key with a roar. I sped down the streets of suburbia and the twenty year old oaks' branches coated the sky with falling ...

    There was no sun today. Only heavy clouds, dripping rain. Rachel reached out and let the drops fall into her outstretched palm. It felt good to be able to move again, after that cramped ride across the German countryside. The rain trickled like tears down her dirty face, leaving clean streaks on...

    The coffee on the plane was good and it made me cry. I wiped my eyes on one of the square napkins with a texture of toilet paper. My makeup was smudged. I could see how I would look in a mirror, red eyes from lack of sleep, and bits of eyeliner hanging unwanted under drooping, saggy bags. I turned a...

    I watched you, with your hadns in the pockets of your faded denim minni, stumble up to the ticket counter and buy a train ticket to new York with four twenties for eleven thirty in the morning and then you sat down on one of the chairs with the padding oozing out and poured over seventeen and finger...

    We had to bring an object describing ourselves. Too lazy and too scared to reflect deeply, I plucked the flowers out of m hair and held them in my wounded hands. There were three. They were purple, with magenta centers. They were fake, and their texture was course and plastic like. They were me, I t...
