    Wise Is a misnomer I'm more a killer Than a scholar My thoughts are not Long or clever Rather short and quick Mouse Trail Dive Scoop Eat I do not contemplate The workings of the universe Rather where I will find my next meal I do not engage my fellow Birds in conversation We're all ...

    I remember the fireworks. I remember sitting in the back of the van of an unknown family and staring up at the inky black sky, taking in the brilliant colors as they painted the sky. I remember feeling annoyed at the large tree that blocked my view of the rockets when they exploded against the chi...

    It’s amazing how two minutes can feel like a lifetime. Two minutes of nonstop combat that leave you winded and drenched in sweat, two minutes that leave your uniform feeling bulky and hot. It’s amazing that two friends who’d just been talking and laughing in line now faced each other, both o...

    I smile Shrug It’s okay It’s fine I don’t care I never really liked you anyway And you turn And walk away Because, after all You have better things to do Than talk to an inferior I act calm, cold and indifferent But my heart screams Don’t go Stay with me I need you I love you...

    Is it possible? For you to even care? Would you ever say sorry? Or even, let’s at least be friends? Could you stop your fabulous life? For a moment? To apologize? For killing me? But no I’m not that important Just a single girl In a sea of populars I don’t matter I’m tiny Insig...

    Are poems Just words on a page? Two-dimensional phrases Slapped onto paper For public enjoyment? Or are they something more? Are they graphite feelings Traced upon the page? Liquid emotions Poured out from the pen A delicate stream of words Weaving a gossamer web Are poems etched From m...

    Whispers “Look at her!” “What a freak!” Arsenic remarks Poison arrows Piercing her armor Blood dripping from invisible wounds They can’t understand her… Or perhaps they simply don’t want to Understand The delicate anomaly They’re slowly slaying She lets them have their fu...

    I was crouched in a supply closet, praying she wouldn’t open the door, praying she wouldn’t find me. I was trembling with fear, all dignity shattered at my feet. Through the thin metal walls, I heard her hysterical voice cackling as she stalked down the empty halls. “Corrrrrrrrrrreyyyyy, I...

    The delicate white bird balanced on my finger, his bright ivory wings spread to their full length. He was a little thing, but beautiful in ways I couldn’t describe. His only imperfections were the tiny black specks marring his snowy back, like ebony paint splattered on a new canvas. “You’r...

    Silent Lips parted in a soundless scream Don’t hurt me I can’t fight back The blows come fast, painful I’m on my knees Stop Please Blood stings my eyes Turning my world red Stop! My aching body wails But the cries remain, unspoken, behind my lips I can’t strike back I’m powerl...

    You said you didn’t like fake girls You said you wanted the real thing But you lied I saw the longing in your eyes, the hunger When you looked at her In all her Latin, spray-tanned magnificence I saw you put your arm over the back of her chair Saw your fingers itching to wrap around her wai...

    I’ve often played the heartbreaker roll And walked away feeling nothing but relief But now, as I sit here, numb and shaking I realize the terrible feelings I’ve missed One word can change a life At one time, my world revolved around you Everything I did was to please you, to impress you B...
