    Excess skin, it's back again - My workouts gone to bits. My stomach's gone from washboard tummy to flatout belly, Bring on the crying fits. What is there that's so punishable about enjoying life and savory taste? Regardless, I must find someone to love me before it's too l...

    At dawn I was an angel, Now I am a stranger. In oily rags what purpose have I? Cast out not by man but you. As a Seraph I had but just built a name. Now here I crouch - my wings pressed down - out on the corner pray'ng....

    Never been so proud to label something mine, A love too precious to succumb to dreaded sands of time. A pair, a set, a couple - call us what you will. Had the Earth divided between us we would be together still. We would be together still......

    A place for families, a place for love, A place truly blessed by the skies above. A wonderful setting in which to grow old, The town is called Cranford, or so I am told. So many activities for kids there are, Getting food downtown, playing at the park, Going to the movies when it gets dark. ...

    I watch Laguna Beach and Project Runway. I watch Spike TV and ESPN. I want a college experience that will prepare me for the real world. I want to get crunk. I wonder if he has a girlfriend. I wonder if she will have sex with me. In twenty years, I hope to be the owner of a successful bu...

    To be is to live and to die, The sun creeps west across the cloudless sky. Kissing her is just another way to die, Her torn black wings block out the beauty in my sky....

    She throws her head back and lets out a sigh, The sunlight brings out the best of her features. That rare and soft baby blue can be seen in her eyes, The way her hips sway, one would be lucky to meet her. The bounce in her step makes her glide across land, Her smile only magnifies her grace. S...

    “Please don’t take this as me being a creep, But somehow I think you’re perfect for me. Miss, I don’t know you and you don’t know me, But I believe you’re the girl from my dreams.”...

    Floating in the air, your particle of dust, I float past all your broken vows without regard or fuss. I rush around your castle – your servant – rarely seen, Your calls for me are frequently reflective of a need. An ant is insignificant, a speck upon the Earth, Yet somehow that ant is simpl...

    When I’m laying in my room and trying to sleep, When I’m falling in and out of a dream so deep. When I’m sketching in class, a heart split in two. I’m pleading with God to give me a clue. When will I find him? What if I’m too late? Will we meet through coincidence or fate? Will he ...

    In the midst of famine, disease, and war, America is a savior, The Big Apple is cold, an ice cream bowl, that offers endless flavor. The people are sprinkles, each a new color, Yet at the end of the day, they all know each other. It may take weeks to pass inspections, But Liberty is worth t...

    A day on which the heat can melt, A day drenched in humidity. The body-temperature air can be felt, While beads of sweat trickle with fluidity. Theaters, malls, and offices, they promise cooler air, While city-dwellers crowd flesh to flesh on corners in Times Square. Throats are dry from hours...

    Knock, knock. I hop off the couch and bolt across the room, stumbling over the creamy white dining chair in my path. Finally, they’re here! Excitedly, I reach the door and twist the knob. It remains sealed. Grunting, I tug harder using all of my weight…Nothing. I hear my best friend Emily ...

    As I board the cruise ship, I am bombarded with sights I have never seen before. There are lights everywhere, dangling from the three-story-high ceiling, reflecting up from the glass floor. There are color-changing light bulbs inside each glass wall sconce. The elevator, also entirely glass, drops o...

    Angelica slouches against the crimson brick wall outside of Old Bridge High School. Pin-straight jet black hair falls over her left eye as she crouches to the ground. Reaching into her black bag, her hand sporadically slithers through its contents as if searching for its prey. After a short momen...

    Stuck in between two moving brick walls, One second I leap and another I fall. They show me their hearts, I show them half back, As soon as I get loose I’m forced to contract. I’m swimming in an ocean so full of love, Yet all I can picture is the escape above. My heart’s in one place, my...

    The streetlight outside my bedroom window keeps me safe at night. When I awake from nightmares it reminds me where I am. From afar it shines into my bedroom window like a cross. It beckons to the bugs despite the Dominance of Dark....

    My baby blanket is the best, he’s soft and comforting, On wintery nights he hugs my chest and keeps me warm till Spring. He’s there when good dreams switch to bad, Don’t want other toys, he’s all I have. He’s there when Mommy and Daddy are busy, He’s there when there’s a storm...

    May you be greeted at the pearly gates with welcome from above When you feel sadness overwhelm you 'cause you've lost touch with the ones you love. May the sun shine its light but, more importantly, its hope, May the likeness in your children give your family the strength to cope. And ...

    Some may ask you why you sing when no one else can hear. “Of course,” she answers, “some find fright in expressions, but dear, I have no fears. Perhaps I’m old but try to push me down and I will stand, There’s nothing I find frightening in expressions or in hands.”...

    These dreams are perseverant moths, Who each night spin their silk, make cloths. The cloths from which I cannot awake, Oh, how much longer will it take? I need some oxygen and air, Need to be free from this airless lair. I seem to miss your calming touch, It showed me what was real. My shee...

    I don’t like your girlfriend, I don’t like her face. I don’t like her purse nor makeup, I don’t like your taste. I’ve got charm and I’ve got class, You can taste perfume when she walks past. I wear shirts that actually fit my chest, She wears more than just a little less. High...
