    I stripped my life for him. I lost myself repeatedly, he left me burning in nakedness. It took a whole year to dress. I mistook shadow for shade, and when darkness scarred me, I thought wanted it. Flung over strong shoulders, weakness wrestled me down. A beautiful bird attracts a beautif...

    Ann Kendrick went about her day as always, cooking, cleaning, feeding the livestock, and bringing the fresh chicken eggs to the town market. Her children, Sarah, Rose, and Joseph, were off from school for the summer, but they spent their days by the stream and in the baseball field until the sky beg...

    The bell rings, and hundreds of students flood out of their classrooms. Most sprint to catch the first-wave buses, others cluster in the lobby, and some head to the locker rooms to change for sports’ practice. Today is Thursday, though, and I’ve been dancing in my seat all day, waiting for the b...

    I want you to come back, So I can tackle my passion And beat down the past; Let my innocence rise again. But when you’re here, I’d fear that same passion Would tear me down, Win over me once more. Nonetheless, I want to see you, I want to look into those blue eyes And tell you how yo...

    A sickening feeling jolts in my middle when you speak to me. And, ha, not even in person or on the phone. Here you are, messaging me, priding yourself In your triumph of a victory that you got a car permit. Well, congrats, my friend. Guess it’s time to drive off and get your mind off you...

    And I feel like I can sing a song As I twirl ‘round my room, With the new fragrance I let kiss my skin. I spin and shut my eyes, The spray bottle in the sky. And I get all giddy- Misting the new scent all about. I’m free; I’m new! The flowers in the air Say hello and sing to m...

    God. I’m on my knees. Begging You for faith. What is wrong with me? What? I can’t hear You… God, answer me. Show me some sign. You’re here in my pain? You feel my suffering? Yes, I see You on that Cross. But only my eyes. God. Where is my heart? What? You’ll give me Yours if...

    Here I am, born with petals white as snow Created to love You, I long to fully love. So when I see the sun, My leaves reach out to touch You. I absorb You, Your fire is my breath. In the night You are my moon, so calm. Finally I may rest, in You. So when I see Your face, Your Shadows tuck...

    You zoom up on the zit on my face. You critique my every move. You tell me it’s over, but you come back. You smile as you slap my face. You cry when you smile. You think it will disappear if you forget. You convince yourself that pain doesn’t exist. You convince yourself th...

    Let me wear Your fragrance, The one that will cause Every heart to turn, Every soul to breathe, Every eye to see You. Let my words be not enough, As my actions alone are Your face and hands Your mouth and eyes For others. Let me be naked before You, Who can heal my heart As You see m...

    Sure sticks and stones Will break my bones, But my bones will Crumble, die anyway. Your words hurt. They piece my soul- You’ve shattered a part of me That will last forever. And like a butterfly- How she lives and flies- Why do you rip my wing, My spirit? Yet all of this you kn...

    Every detail clumped Together Doesn’t make the picture. The image is of its own; It can’t be taken apart, Examined. Too bright a light Floods its real identity. The bit of lint on a shirt- It matters so much. A person turns, Stares. Stops in his tracks Until the guys behind him,...

    None. No one understands. I clean up the table- But you blame me for the crumbs. None. No one understands. My heart cries for your love But you laugh. In my mind it makes Perfect sense. But None. No one understands. I relentlessly seek but I never find- No love. No one underst...

    A warm breeze hugs me as I lie back on the pool chair and gaze up at the trees. I want to absorb myself fully in the beauty of the season before it’s back to school. The leaves on the trees are a vivid green, and the branches reach to greet the sun. I wish now is forever. I want to grasp something...

    I went to the city Just the other day. It was only a trip Not too far away. I walked through the streets Of Little Italy and China Town. I saw old rusty buildings. I saw buckets of frogs. I saw famished men trying to keep warm. I saw children walking their dogs. And it was then that I ...

    Wipe away the past; Take away my shame. Forget what I have done To give you such pain. Let us start over; Erase all my mistakes. Forgiveness is the answer- Let's start with a hand shake. I promise to do better; Please let our relationship mend. I will forever keep this promise- I jus...

    When I was in Kindergarten, I borrowed The Mixed-Up Chameleon from the Sandy Hook School library, and on the very same day my mom bought The Very Hungry Caterpillar from Borders. Two weeks later when it came time to return the book I had borrowed, I accidentally returned The Very Hungry Caterpillar ...
