    Sometimes I love the English language The same word for a line of three of the heaven’s playthings and a pair, alike or opposite and a combination of two rhythmic parts of poetry and meiosis pairing chromosomes a new moon a new link a new verse a new life syzygy...

    Dry mouth pounding heart Shaking hands wide eyes Fear excitement anticipation Something in between Staring gazing wondering At something not seen Asking for gift ability courage insight To step over describe that which defies description See without eyes hear without ears sense without touch...

    The highway looks endless from here The only paved road for miles around A black horizon rimmed by black sky riddled with stars Gives the impression of infinity The only hint of time and place Of destination Are the brightly colored street signs Throwing back the headlights Like glittering...

    I know I should just walk away I get that I mean, you’ve made yourself extremely clear Almost as clear as I have But I can’t quite make myself turn around Can’t quite tear my eyes off of yours I know it’s futile Hopeless But I can’t help gazing after you as you walk away And f...

    You’re like a star Shining outside my bedroom window I wish on you every night Though I should have stopped wishing on you The four hundred and forty-fourth time My wish didn’t come true When I need a muse I need only to look at you Your brilliance has inspired Countless poems and s...

    Your hand warm on mine as we sit under a cool canopy of green dripping splish-splash pieces of sky on our upturned faces my head on your chest breathing you in like a foreign spice that fills me up you are all I want need covet as your smile pierces the clouds and makes the drops of sk...

    I’m such a dreamer I used to love that about myself I still do, sometimes But my starry eyes Lost in the heavens Are also my biggest weakness Nothing can compare To the colors, adventures, music, romance, magic Found in my mind So reality becomes dull and colorless And I have to wo...

    The bright lights illuminate the insides of my eyes Bright red The color of life I watch the vessels pulse Hear the thunder of blood in my ears And then I open my eyes And the lights nearly blind me But I do not see them Nor do I see the thousands of gleaming faces Staring at me with...

    I wish I could read your mind. I mean, you know now. She told you. I let her. I think you're flirting But I can't be sure. I'm just no good at this stuff. Besides, you acted this way before And I wasn't the one you liked. We're just friends. But what are you thinking? Your face gives ...

    Leave. Him. Alone. If you don't want him Then step away. Let go of his hands. Stop looking into his eyes. Stop blocking my view. I'm sick Of trying to flirt with him And having you step between us. And he watches as you walk away And you know it. And you wiggle your hips a li...

    Sunlight tastes like Honey And jasmine tea Melting on my tongue With just a hint of lavender A gust of fresh-cut grass My whole body tastes it As it soaks through my skin And I feel the light And the sweetness And the golden music Knit into my soul And I smile And open my mouth An...

    My stories always start with Characters. But just a glance. A word A gesture A quirk A witty remark The rest shrouded in mystery And I try to catch them As they elude me Find pieces of their faces on the city bus Fragments of their souls Caught between the shelves in a gas station E...

    Tick. Tick. Tick. Nearly perfect silence But for pencils scratching And the clock beating out An eternity And it is an eternity Each second seeming interminable Every moment a wasted opportunity Because They won't let me Write! I sit and Twiddle my thumbs And try not to let Ea...

    A dark, desolate bus stop A biting wind A shivering, nervous wait The squeal of brakes A wet, slushy splash A stink of diesel Icy steps An awkward, stumbling question A flash of a shiny new bus pass A kind smile and a reassuring nod The driver understands A seat in front just be...

    Stop it. Please, just stop. I can't take it anymore. Do you realize what it does to me when you say you can't get a girlfriend? That no one likes you? I put on a concerned face and listen to your troubles But I crumble inside. And I can't even be mad at you for complaining Because you're ...

    When I was little, everything was black and white With straight lines and crisp corners Everything went into one area or the other; The world was in order. Now that I've grown, it seems my eyes have gotten worse. The clean lines are now just blurs No black or white Just different kinds of g...
