    Crimson crescent moons On a pale, skin colored sky Jaw clenched tightly As to halt the flood of words That so desperately wished to be free That so violently beat Against the back of my teeth Threatening to break down that dam Unchain these lips And ruin all hope of success Knives so sh...

    The autumn wind blowing through my hair Making beautiful reds, oranges, yellows, and browns Float off the ground in its wake Evenly dispursing them across the yard It was the third time Dragging the rake over that same area Why won't the wind stop? When will the leaves cease their ste...
