    With arms wide open, Life welcomes us and smiles, asking us if we might care to stay awhile. Well the wind blows cold and it’s scary alone so we accept and agree, and we are free until the naïvety slips away, placing a quiet knowledge in our hands, leaving us not knowing where we st...

    Instead of smiling, I weep. There's a certain sanity I can't seem to keep. Empty, vacant, distant. I'm cold, alone, resistant. Your hand drifts from its comfort in mine; maybe this is a sign that we aren't meant to be. Despite my constant troubled plea, you won't dar...

    When the buildings fell and the bricks tumbled, the planes yelled and the sky crumbled. Hearts impaled, bodies stumbled. A life failed, mourning rumbles. Cold hands numbing, a death becoming. An estimated guess of innocent deaths. Tears fall from their eyes as they watch the innocent di...

    and I'll laugh at the next fool to call my name in regret. I left for a reason, I had my heart and my mind set. But he kept calling me back for more as if I never walked out that door. He broke my heart before anything could even start. and I'll laugh at the next fool to bring me to ...

    We're going around and around, but still I can't be found. I've been on this scene and all its in-betweens at least fourteen times, is that such a crime? Forgive me, I've committed a sin. Let's go for another spin. I'm assimilating on this carousel and I haven&...

    Nothing is real, and I can't seem to feel. Empty, vacant, distant. I'm cold, alone, resistant. I look around me but there's nothing there to see. I can't even try, as the world passes me by. Something's happened, but I don't know what. I've been cut. Cut ...

    Love and leave, forgive and forget. Sometimes it's better to believe and worse to regret. Future and past, forward and rewind. Sometimes it's better to make this moment last and worse to pretend to be blind. Smile and cry, hope and dream. Sometimes it's be...

    All a broken heart needs is time. It had time to break, it needs time to heal. My heart quakes -- this isn't how I intended to feel. My heart's tied up in a knot, triple laced tight. My heart and my mind fought to find the light. But all my heart could see was darkness as my mind...

    Last night I cried. I cried so much. I sat at the computer for an hour, crying, doing nothing else but that. When I finally wiped my eyes and got the courage to close them and try to fall asleep, I found that I couldn’t close them without hundreds of salty beads of tears slipping out. It hurt to c...

    When I walked into that tiny, enclosed hospital room, what I expected to see wasn’t lying in the modernized electric bed, surrounded by IV tubes and nursing schedules. Instead, a man with drooping eyelids, a pale complexion, saddened eyes, and a doubtful heart took the place of my grandfather. It ...

    The sun shreiks with shame and the moon is to blame. The moon writhes with mistakes and the sun's heart aches. The sun is one with the moon--and the moon one with the sun. Together, intertwining, can't stop. Their stars beat, bop, bop. Dancing in the sky, everything flying by. The moon feels it--the...

    Oh, Future. How I wish to know what's soon to be thrown my way! I wish to know what you hold. I wish to know your secrets. I wish to know your lies. But I'm coming, soon enough. I'm sitting here, typing this letter. My fingers linger over the keyboard, moving from one letter to the next, not sure...

    It was the glass that held everything. It was the road that led everywhere. It was the heart that loved everyone. You are the glass that holds everything. You are the road that leads everywhere. You are the heart that loves everyone. But the one thing you aren't, is the only thing I want ...

    Squish. It's the sound of sand beneath our feet, as we imprint our hearts in the wetness of the almost vacant beach. Squish. It's the sound of my heart, slipping from my body, as I hear the news that your footprints have washed away. Squish. It's the sound of our feet skipping in the mud,...

    Like mine, do your eyes shine? I see your eyes hold secrets in a shrine Your eyes hold stories, old and new Yours are the eyes I can see through Your eyes, dark and colorless They hold stories of loved ones you miss Your eyes, piercing and crying They show that inside you're slo...

    Sitting under the big willow trees All I could think of was the memories You and me laughing in the sun You and me, together as one Wondering why the old tree cries Then I know, because of the time passing by We're no longer one, but two No longer together, there's me and there'...
