    A flicker, shadows cast at odd angles. Is that a hand reaching towards me? A foot attached to a body coming closer to me? A face hidden in the depth of night? I see things that don’t exist, But what’s real escapes me. The dim becomes dimmer, Soon disappearing. A shiver sneaks its way th...

    A young girl, Her face hidden beneath scarves, Watches her world fall apart. A boy throwing Jagged stones at his sister, No respect left for her. Battle noises in The distance, Men meeting God or Allah. Her mother falls To her knees, ...

    Her body, Is monstrous. The skin that covers her Is singed and burned. The parts that make her whole, Are lanky and awkward. Where her curves should be lovely, They’re uneven and lumpy. Singed, Burned, Flesh....

    In the truck Trees and rocks fly by in the window; They call to me; Their branches telling me to come home, To climb higher, higher into the mountains, To lose myself in a crevice, To keep myself hidden; As I look out the window My face is reflected back at me, Hair a mess, Face a ghost, ...

    “Me? I’m the glue. That sticky white substance That kids use to mend ripped paper, Or eat on a dare.” “Me? I’m the glue. I hold everyone and everything together; I’m the bridge that can never break, Or everyone I love will drown.” “Me? I’m the glue. ...

    My heart whispers into the wind, “What will I ever do without you?” The Alaskan chill bites at me, And my ears sting red from the cold. I can’t hold on much longer, The time for goodbyes has come. Your smile is as fake as they get, Yet you hide who you truly are quite well. Y...

    On the last night I saw him, His lips brushed mine: so sweet and smooth. He looked down at me, Caramel eyes shining. “I’m getting out,” And with that he left me, Left me watching that royal blue t-shirt, Cling to his tensing muscles. No phone calls for hours, Blue, like the dimming sk...

    Those lips, they whisper to me Promises of forever I long to believe their lies The truth that doesn’t exist Those lips, they whisper to me I can see the promises, For the lies they really are Truths that try to control me Those lips, they whisper to me Promises that strangle me The...

    Life was loved long long ago: He looks down at destruction and hatred. His world of perfection has been tempted by seven deadly imperfections. He watches, full of despair, until he can take no more. In one swift motion, he rocks every morsel of perfection away and turns his back on his creation. Sha...

    It's easier to pretend your here when your smell surrounds me. it's easier to pretend your here when soft cotton covers my skin. it's easier to pretend your here when your body shields mine from the cold. it's easier to pretend your here when your lips touch mine. it's easie...

    They say that Disney land is the happiest place on earth, they’ve obviously never been in your arms. When I’m there with you I can’t think of a happier place. When I’m there with you life stops, time stops, the world comes to a standstill, and it’s just you and me and nothing else matters....

    You took the cross for the unworthy Your flesh was torn for the unholy You endured unimaginable pain for those who aren’t righteous You took on all these things not gaining one from us And you didn’t complain, not once Your only wish is to see us be saved And you only wanted us to know you...

    You hold my life within your hands One small pebble In a sea of pearls You grip me tight And correct my wrongs You know my thoughts My pains And my joys There is no one like you Your infinite And always with me When my heart aches for those who don’t know you You give me words to say...

    I dig my toes into the sand The ocean like a thousand diamonds rolling in the wind I see the world through strands of hair blown in my face Brushed away by velvet hands And in this moment I am floating Upside-down on this rollercoaster Free falling because I’m not strapped in I see the wor...

    Who knew one word could make you hurt so badly? Not even a big word But yet; it cuts so deep And in the end, It only leaves a mess One small word A four letter lie Causes more pain than a bullet to the head Brings on the destruction of man What one word could possibly do so much damage? On...

    I’d like to meet someone who won’t break my heart into a million pieces. Someone who will treat me right, show me respect. A guy who won’t be embarrassed to talk to me around his friends. “A new start?” I ask my mom as my jaw dropped to the floor. “Yes dear, we can get away from t...

    Do you ever stop to think what life would be like without the one you love? How dark your days will become? How many sleepless nights you will face? Why do we give up on all the good? Let it get swallowed by the dust? Why do we do things to make the ones we love go away? To disappear forever? ...

    The thunder rumbles, the hard ground shaking beneath my feet. Earthquake. No it has to be something else. I look up at the sky; black as my heart. Lightning streaks through the thick masses of clouds. Shadows come; but disappear just as fast. I close my eyes. The ground opens beneath me; I f...
