    skin to skin; and you know i don't smoke but darling, i can handle heat. your cigarette kisses scream a bad-boy cliche, but your guilty cologne and twisted tongue prove to me otherwise. two wrongs don't make a right. two breaks don't fix a thing. and two people don't add...

    bitten lips won't keep your secrets, so just seal them with your own; it's a simple fix, i know you've learned you just can't be alone. broken straps and spent stilettos play up your bachelor pad decor; and your black and blue swirled necktie hangs so haughty from your d...

    your neon clothes might as well scream “open!” a buzzing sign: invisible. your grey-wash eyes mask the grand canyon half-moons reclining underneath. bruised lightly like the ripest of fruits. left for days. baby, you smell sweet, but upon further inspection: you...

    it's breath against breath, his bare chest screaming let's- keep it together now. "i don't want to leave," she says her pouting lips go to his head but with calm rains come storms and he's better off half dead. he's the strongest thing for miles she can s...

    her tired eyes just compromise the fact that she's been up for days, and her "oh i'm fines" and raised white lines put her smile out of place. the dullness in your blue eyes says you've found a new way to escape, but you best hold tight to your fast rides before the...

    he spoke memories, and my heart dissolved. this concrete dam, Chutes and Ladders, letting cold black water seep into my sweetblood veins, a guessing game of Battleship and baby, you were on target. according to them, you were T-R-O-U-B-L-E nights of your cigarette kisses soft shirt s...

    what is a lie? is it how i used to be with him and feel his steely strong limbs under mine? or is it what i told myself when i said "i can keep promises"? or is it your entire life, a machine, a fake heartbeat to survive on so others won't destroy you? is it how you don't mind throwing your...

    we fight like cats, backs arching hissing, spitting. you say, “grow a backbone” oh, but that’s just what you need. a backbone. maybe you could face yourself. a backbone, to keep you from twisting all the way around so the lies don’t slap your face into blazen chagrin. a backbone s...

    And I write this on a notepad Full of hotel ads and missing dads And it makes me realize I'm no luckier than the next man. These garbage seas and plastic cutlery Are nothing more than a selfish plea Like the money you ask for coffee When you've got your hot-froth tea. Don't try to draw his...

    Today my teacher said, "Pick your favorite place on earth and write an essay all about it due in just a day." Well your arms are the only place in my mind that are even writing-worth, So I take a pen and start to write the details all away. I capture how you smile at me and how I grin and look...

    Sliding my sunglasses Back up my nose, I Press my forehead Against the lukewarm glass window. The lines on the road Fly by. Sometimes there’s a smudge Of yellow on ink-black Where someone, maybe a schoolbus Or a truck Or a car like ours Drove while the lines Were freshly painted. ...

    Anguishes are ice cubes in a silver bucket, Slithering to and fro Through the ocean of half-melted excuses and lies. They strive to escape But just make noise. Rattling, clattering, jangling. Bitterness is a dark room, A dark room where falsehoods lie, And people too. A musty dark room wh...
