    You tell me to scrape the acid from my tongue. You tell me to let the beauty of the world saturate my paper, untainted and pure, Like rain drops on a spring afternoon. Quenching the thirst of the innocence starved world. You tell me to close my tired brown eyes and Give way to but a moment in ti...

    All that’s left is the ghost of us Tucked deeply in your sheets Our warmth is seeping through the fibers The cold night won’t let me sleep I can’t lie I miss you already I’d hate to think you were never here, To think you just wrapped me in your bones, To think you couldn’t make m...

    I sat by your side, with one clammy nervous hand to your cheek and my other around your waist, as I thought of the middle of the night phone call. Found on the street' Saying you felt like you were going to die. And I start to believe irony is a b****, when I flash to 3:00 a.m. and endless re-run...

    You patronize the lacking With your constant condescending ways And carry about you a petulant blasé air Unappreciative of your lavished days You never really lend a hand While kneeling on the floor beneath The bodies of the underprivileged The blistered hands and callused feet You just...

    Your beautiful blue eyes Or were they green? Like an angry wave Over an angry sea. I tried to tame you, Make you mine. But you raged on and I wasted my time. Trying to build sand castles along your shore....

    I clamp my hands over my ears To drown out the sound and Press my body to the nearest wall, With its spiderweb cracks still creeping D O W N Covered by family pictures or a religious calendar Smiles And Christ And Fists And Sin. To hold myself up. To hold myself in. But...

    When I met her She was lying by the water bed Whispering to the babbling brook Watching all her secrets pour down stream. Tumbling along side small rocks And grains of sand and life and Death and fallen leaves. You should have seen her With that melancholy look in her eyes Becoming more...

    You speak the language Of life experiences Of scraped knees Of lessons learned the difficult way. You wrap me In hard truths In soft hands And old proverbs That still hold true today And in some way have a hold on me. You quote your mother Who is old and wise and all heart. But you don...

    Does it look like I have perfection written across my body? Etched by the conforming hand of society Letting the ink Seep through my pores Absorb into my brain, Which now sends ink poisoned messages to my hollow eyes As they stare entranced by the magazine that lays in front of me, Filled wit...

    A Ravine Moment We walked hand in hand Under the night sky The light of the moon Reflecting in your eyes. The ravine was quite And we laid side by side Your arms were close around me And I just couldn't hide' That I was falling for you. And that even if you fell I'd still be by your...

    I suppose you could say I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth The same silver spoon that my nanny used To feed me bitter fruit with as a toddler Fruit that probably [As I realized once I was older] Probably came directly from the Garden of Eden Forbidden, a sin, and clearly no secret T...

    You have no reason to do what you do. I said to the young lady Pulling petals Off stems. They are beautiful And delicate With no way to mend. And she looked at me sadly And I didn't know That she pulls the petals Off of their stems Because her mother didn't think so. Didn't Think she w...

    I come here every morning with a smile on my face Come from a broken home A broken heart And just in case In case you were wondering Yes' In my eyes there's still a trace. The floating pools of mud Those little dirty screens Scenes of love and life and loss Nothing of it clean Because t...

    Writing Her Story She doesn't hold her breath now & with a dead on stare Her reflection in the water Beginning to disappear No one tried to stop her No one took her hand So now she's face to face with her reflection And now nobody can She never liked that face she wore But you neve...

    Wrapped in black lace Didn't you know you're just his toy for today? Your beautiful mind was just his to play & inside you always wanted more, but knew no other way. A break from cold metal Between your legs In your heart And on that stage. He promised you more. And for a second you th...

    Have you ever seen a shooting star? The night clouded, clouded with its little sparks But not shooting Not sparking Not flying out of their little dark pockets But sitting still, Still sitting There for me if I were to pluck them out in need. Those little lights Never to be blinded by the ...

    The mood is nostalgic It's half past two in the afternoon My mind is kind of empty Of everything but you. You said just close my eyes And I will see your face But your features become distorted With every mile that separates And this vision becomes blurred By every tear that fills the spa...

    You say at night you see the moon A shade A shade of red Piercing through the darkened sky A velvet pillow beneath its head. Your eyes to match the lovely moon And a laboratory in which they lay To plan the process of the pain Thought up by that darkened, and beating decay. A shade of ...

    FAITH Found Through Closed Eyes I'd reach up slowly Cautiously Hoping not to upset the balance of things For they always said 'you' had a plan for us all While still clinging to the ground for all that it was worth I'd stand on my tippy toes hoping to reach 'you' Hoping that the sun doesn't...
