    As the currents pull me out, I feel your hands on my wrists Pulling me down And under. My lungs are failing. My lungs are failing and I’m sinking deeper and deeper In love with the culprit, my murderer With his ocean blue eyes. Suffocating. Intoxicating. Destroying me, and I lust after...

    I'll be waiting for you in my room. I'll leave the windows unlocked, so you don't have to wake me. The moonlight shines in and all the stars remind me of you. Of all the millions of burning lights in the sky, yours shines the brightest. I'll let the night sin...

    Just a smile from you leaves me gasping for air As if you were the ocean, Deep and black, But beautiful. Your eyes like a rip tide, Pulling me closer and closer. Straight into the dark waters of your heart. I’m struggling for air as I sink beneath the surface And into the dusty white sand...

    Nervously walking to the Pub, Praying you’re working, Hoping you’re not, But You’re sitting outside. Now, what do I do? Turn around, take the alley, Go through the back door And hope you don’t see me Or Casually walk by you, Nervous and weak, Throw no glances your way and Hope...

    Tonight I stood behind the drummer. He was playing on the left side of the stage And had on a red shirt in which you could see that he Was nothing but flesh and bones. His hair was long and dirty and I could see his thigh tattoo peeking out from Under his cut-off shorts. You kept half of you...

    Cold as ice, your skin was, Cooling my heated arms. Veins, like electrical wires, Trying to gain my composure. Breathing harder, and harder. A nightmare, if I must say. No, a dream, my love. A dream, it was. I hear your breathing. Harder. Slower, And you’d stop. The drumbeat of your he...

    Who are you, knocking on the doors of my heart? That smile and blonde hair leaves me nearly breathless, but I won’t let you fool me. Who are you anyway, staring into my eyes with your hollow blues? The way you look at me makes me believe that you could really save me, but I’m too far gone....

    Weak- As you hold me down with hollow eyes, The shade of ocean-green. I’m drowning. Your lips part- Smile. Breathe, Sucking the air from my lungs, If not my very soul. A heart worn-out, broken, and mistreated. I’ll love you with the rest of me. If you want the stars, I’ll give you t...

    Paranoid at the sound of sirens: My wrists are too small for handcuffs. I’m far too young to be behind bars that old, and thick, and cold. Is it cold in jail? I don’t know how this works. Those words flutter through my mind, and stomach. “You have the right to remain silent...” Okay. ...

    I'm falling asleep tonight to dreams of you and I pray to God that I never wake so- forever, I can stay in this sweet oblivion....

    I hear the trains and they remind me of all those nights we spent locked in your room, lying awake and talking about the future, no regrets, just love and your eyes and my lips. So bittersweet, it was. The trains would pass as we were falling asleep to nightmares of morning and how it would ...

    It's thirty minutes 'til sunrise and I still haven't gotten to sleep. These thoughts of you and me are more haunting than the silence of this room and empty sheets have left me cold and too-conscious, it seems. Insomnia in the air, my eyes glued on the fan to pass the time; lamp...

    I should have gone to Boston when I had the chance last year because all I’ve felt lately is anxious for something new. Strayed off the path my father marched for me straight into a bar where I found a boy, so perfect And flawless. He took my heart off into the town, and under the stars, he k...

    ..and oh, how I miss you. Like I lost my pearls. The one thing that made me feel pretty. You made me feel alive. Live my life as the good girl, You changed that- For the best. And I put all the wrong words together To make this work. It drives you away and yet, I keep typing, and writing, ...

    Maybe tomorrow I will have the strength to get out of bed. Maybe I will get my room cleaned up and my laundry done Because right now- I can’t see the floor from all the dirty clothes and ripped-out pages of my notebook Where I tried writing you a letter and a few songs, but the words never ca...

    I feel these butterflies biting at the lining of my stomach, And that shock burning through my veins every time your hand brushes mine, Sitting at this table In this bar, Drawing our names on napkins, And sipping Dr. Pepper, It's obvious what's going on. But I've cried “love” too many ti...

    I hate those days where holding my breath becomes more comfortable than breathing And all the blood in my veins seems to be flowing slower than usual. My heart is worn out and misused, but not yet old. These days, I seem to be sleeping less and less, Fighting sleep at night and pleading to wake ...

    I’ve been living in this band shirt and ripped jeans. For the past week- I’ve been living off soda and energy drinks. When you called yesterday (I knew you would give up), I broke down and cried- But I’m putting on a dress and I’m going out tonight....

    Love is not the flowers, the dinner dates or how many movies we've seen. It's not the number of days we've been official, the surprise visits or the good morning texts. Love is the look in his eyes as I'm leaving his house, the touch of his bare, ink-covered skin on mine, and t...

    I've been ravaged by time: broken, hurt, shattered. To be honest, ripped apart. I've loved many, too many-at that, but never loved back. I gave away my heart, and part of my soul,and half of my body to them all. They, every one of them, stripped the skin from me and stole what they...

    I spent the afternoon thinking about you and all the things we used to do, Like walking downtown just to pass the time, and the way you would hold me and Kiss my cheeks, when we both knew it was too soon. I thought about the way my stomach tingled when our arms brushed, and our hands would touch...

    There is just something about the trains. They draw me in. They make me reckless. Running- not on my own, past the traffic, Through red lights. Past police cars (that are still searching for me) Just to sit on the grinded sidewalk, Hands, feet, heart, eyes Locked on art before me. More tha...

    Trapped in these sheets, the memory of you Still lingers, like your scent on my clothes. Desperate for the things I’ve lost, I reach farther for you, praying to God- That you’ll be here, in this bed, with me tonight. But I know that as the sun breaks the clouds, And my eyes open, You’ll...

    I've tried, many times, to write you a sonnet (like Shakespeare) but the words never came out right; they were never pretty enough or romantic or sweet enough. I couldn't describe you in a sonnet. If i could ever find the words to describe your eyes: they're dark brown and s...
