    Finally, the weight overcame me and I allow it to hold down my heavy arms. In a situation like this, all you have is either pain or memories. So, as the cold of the ground finally settles on my spine, I remember. It was eleven years ago and I was 7 years old. I was sitting in the front seat o...

    I plan to wait for rain to make a sail that will float me away from where I am, across a sea now called misery....

    The last time I heard “Above and Below” by The Bravery, I was at Dead Dog’s Cliff and mesmerized by the rocks waiting for me at the bottom. They call it Dead Dog’s Cliff because around thirty years ago some psycho dog-napped dozens of dogs from our tiny town of Hinder, North Dakota. And eve...

    Stale pretzels and flat soda spill as turbulence shakes the plane from right to left. Exactly the way I wanted to spend the day after my mother died. I hold back tears, not wanting the old lady next to me to get any ideas that I want to explain my problems to her, like in a cliché movie. I decid...

    Three weeks ago Nick called me and said he was to be a painter. He had found that old picture of a cat he created in fourth grade, the one, if I remember correctly, from when we were making our family trees and Nick had convinced the class Oreo was his brother, that his mom gave birth to him and ev...

    “Ma’am? You can’t sleep here. Ma’am?” I spring up from the city park bench, gasping like an airless diver breaking to the surface. “I’m sorry, you can’t sleep here. Do you need me to take you to a shelter?” The middle aged Chicago police man hesitates, clearly not...

    White When there is no hue at all, this is what remains: a wave crashing in on itself. Yellow Screaming danger to your eyes in big bold letters. Orange There is no escaping the blaze within the phosphorescence. Red It crawls through your veins, only emerging when poked at by a cu...

    I want everything. Though so does everyone else. I want a different soul and a new designer purse to carry it in. I want to understand belief. God? Heaven? Miracles? My life could all be falling apart, but magically be picked up again. It’s God’s miracle they say. No, it‘s Destiny...

    You have only seen the bird twice. The first time, you smiled at it, you could see the musical notes float from its beak, chestnut highlights lingering in its feathers, the kind of color you see as fall arises. It s body could rest in your palm, darling enough to want to take home. Now, you...

    I picked at my fingernails and you tapped your digits on the bench. Hold her hand Stephanie yelled. Pressured, your fingers stopped drumming beats on the cedar and settled at my palm, then tangled themselves between my fingers. Your hand was clammy, something that would normally bother me, ...

    The familiar screams of trucks wake the resting building. The easily influenced pick away at the diminishing timber of the windowsill that belongs to their fourth floor apartment. Top floor is for gawking at the accident below. It’s all a little too common for the aged two stories down. A...

    Open your eyes to see. Speak in the language known to man. The sun never rises, it’s only what the earth makes us believe. I can remember when we were so tiny. Imagination over reality. I’m an ordinary girl with Smiling memories, a confused present, and an unforgiving future. It al...

    There’s not much to say, when no one knows your name. To shy to speak. To shy to stand up. Its not easy. Not as easy as you think. You just want to scream, yell to the whole world, exactly who you are. You can try to find a scapegoat, blame it on the past. But don’t get too eager,...

    No, Freedom of speech. Say what you want, with a teacher, cop, mom, breathing down your neck. Don’t say this. Don’t say that. Don’t say, scream. No, Freedom of petition. Go ahead with you signs and chants, but don’t chant too loud, don’t hold your signs too high. You’ll ...

    Running in odd shaped circles Cant you see she is the same? A craving for his tongue between her teeth. Their lives go on and on and away. Simple boy. Chasing the only meaningful pointless memory. She will be there for every heartache war. As long as you don’t forget her to cold hearte...

    You’ve already wasted your life. Missed so many things. When common sense and society shook hands and said goodbye, from when I opened my eyes and declared myself my own damn God. Life goes on. Always fighting the future, you forget your living in the past. The agony becomes soft and c...

    It’s always so quiet. The only sound are the leafs, gliding on the surface of the cold ground. You’d think they had somewhere to go. A mystery that once just laid at rest. A gentle breeze disturbs, Fueling the take off, spinning through the frigid air. Eventually it just find it’s ...

    Ten small fingers and toes. Finding their way to life. Stretching and grasping the air. Grabbing at the start of a beginning. Nine cry per-day. Tears for attention, waterfalls of hunger and pain. The constant flowing for nothing at all. Eight clumsy steps forward. Holding the traction ...

    Accept the advice, expect from those you advise. Your already all ready. Allowed to scream a loud, incase of disease or decease. Quickly through the thorough investigation, farther then the facts further received. A new life though you knew, you maybe be idle but your always the idol to wa...

    Just around the corner, there’s a trash can holding any dream you destroyed. Just around the block, a girl cries for the maker that makes the gold lining of your heart. The black tar that covers hers is hardening. The needle punctures her veins. Drifting away in her arm restraints, s...

    Think, what does your mirror know? It remembers when you stole your mother’s lipstick. It can recall every instance your bra strap left your shoulder. It still can’t understand why you have cried so many time in it’s presence. Do you forget its there, watching? It has lived in yo...
