    He was so sweet and I knew him before, He kissed my lips until they were sore, I knew he loved me, but I loved him more, We had that accident nobody budgets for. I worried for a week, and then three, Father Time and all his friends harassed me, Sent me waves of worry until I was un...

    Just another hot day, Roasting ‘cuz the schools won’t pay, Paula begs, “Find literary devices in a poem,” They answer, “What about Shel Silverstein,” and “Can we use our own?” I forgot where I was but I remember the path, Suspended license and another credit for math. Backw...

    “We need to talk.” He didn’t want to say it like this, but he needed to tell me. “I…” He loves me. That’s what he’ll say. I’ll ignore my heart. Logic always wins, right? “I think we should just stay friends.” Friends. Aha. I’ll ignore my heart. Passion never wi...

    Are we, human beings, defined by what we sense? Is everything based on sound? Do bass guitars ring in our ears when danger approaches, and do we hear a tinkling of bells when it’s time to slow down? Does a smile make a noise? How about tears, with their multitude of meanings. Do they sing thei...

    This may sound odd as an introductory, but I am friendly. Stars cartwheel across their black canvas. Each twinkle caresses the universe with awe. It’s a clear night, without a trace of smog in the heavens. The celestial beams are evident without any intervention, enabling the human mind to wand...

    E. The fuel gauge drops past a quarter tank, laughing at me like a perturbed clown. The red-nosed man won't get away with this prank because tonight I'm going down. E. I hear the engine crying, redlining in sixth gear. My only way of escape is dying. And I swore I'd never feel fear. E....

    Hello That’s how it started Wasn’t it? After that I’m sure we parted And I don’t remember more. But I remember your face, The eyes I could adore. I recall your hair, The way you smelled like a millionaire. I loved you then And I love you still, And in the future I’m sure I will,...

    I had an accident when I was five. I only know this because they told me. Who, you might ask? Well, if I told you, you may just accuse me of lying. But, deep inside me, it’s true. I don’t remember it. I lost my memory in that accident, and I’ve never been able to remember anything earlier than...

    Silence is frightening. It’s blank, desolate, and dark. I’d rather be stuck in a storm, listening to the thunder and lightening. If I’m lucky, I’ll hear the sorrowful song of a lark. Silence is a sort of claustrophobia. The walls of nothing close in. This was God’s worst idea. Som...

    Wendy will wait, Staring at the night, She’ll feel the drowning weight, The heaviness of your light. Peter may not come back, But you are her solace. You stand out in the black, Taking away all the stress. Even though the night is cloudy, Your light still shines on, Making moods less dow...

    Everyday it’s a different reason, Maybe it’s just the new season. Something must be wrong here, I can’t belong here. Why did this happen? So here I sit then, Wishing for someone to dry my eyes. Can anyone hear my cries? Sometimes things spin out of control, Like drugs, sex, and rock ...

    I was born on the bottom. Grandpa was solemn. Mamma didn’t agree, But Papa decided to flee. There was the Brahmin, With their high-held chin. There were the warriors, merchants, Laborers, farmers, all in their turn of events. I can’t look at them, Their high flower doesn’t grow from m...

    There have been many moments, But there are those few When I loose control, And I only think of you. I shouldn’t. Usually you’re the man, You have so many girlfriends Just because you can. I hate that. You get what you want. If it’s it that you got, It’s it that you flaunt. I don...

    Fingers banging on the keys, Mice leading the symphony, Blank pages turn to sheets, Synchronization of sound, Hands flying and performing, Music rolling; almost, Conductor with chords. Separate sounds, Violin form the back, Piano as the lead, Grinding, Humming, Symphony of the computer....

    Let the words flow freely from your crisp pages And let the letters dance happily, Like fairies let out of their cages. May your stories fly, Lift off and touch the sky. Let words carry me to a new world Where everything is twisted, distorted, curled. May children see Peter Pan’s ship in f...

    I can't figure out pepper. Is it a spice? It's mixed in my dad's hair. Is it a Sgt. or a Dr.? It's a singer. Is it a mint? It's hot for sure. Is it green or black? I can't figure out pepper....

    Dear Joe, There's other fish in the sea. I don't want a fish. I want you. There are other cliffs to jump, Other rivers to catch me. Who says I've got a life jacket? I don't need one, I've got you. Roses are sweet. You smell better. Violets may be blue, But your eyes are too. The maJOEr...

    Strutting into town is the zero man. He is nothing, knows not nothing. He's got a monkey and an egg roll He's not anything of nobody. He got the touch of villain, He's like you. He's like me. He moves with psychotic fingers And pushes the sidewalk with cardboard boxes. He's slumming the gui...

    We met in the second grade. I was drawn to Emily and Kathryn, attracted by their happiness and the way they accepted me. Soon, our knot of friendship was tied as tight as an impossibly tangled necklace. We all came up with nicknames with each other, mine being Liberd, which was later shortened to Be...

    Concrete picnic, Four girls on sand, Greenery pulled up, They started a band. One member looked out the window, Watched them eat. She stood against the pane, Drumming her fingers to the beat. They tended to a guest, Who invited herself in, The window-girl and the unwelcome fought And...

    God was at that concert with me. He sang the hit songs, He mosh pitted with us and took all the videos he possibly could. He got frustrated at the tall people and annoyed with the annoying, clapping and taking off his jacket. He screamed when she came out in her skimpy outfit, cheered when she...
