    I was raised in a religious Presbyterian family. My dad was a choir director, my mom was a volunteer in the church, and I was a youth group leader. Because of this, people are always surprised when they ask, "What do you believe in?" and I shrug and answer, "Nothing." As huma...

    Janice has loved and she’s lost She knows that attachment has a cost And Janice spends each day alone No parties, no dates, and no calls on the phone Janice is tired And somewhere along the line it seems That Janice forgot how to dream She knows there’s no such thing as miracles But I...

    Baby lullabies Close your tired eyes Every time you cry I gaze down in pain You can’t see me here But I am here my dear Watching you get by One day at a time I am all alone Struggling on my own Trying to remember All the good times that we had One day at a time Someday I know I’l...

    Tiny hands and soft feet, Eyelashes fluttering Like butterfly wings, And yawns stopped dead with a pacifier. Stroking slippery curls with my hands And steady breaths Slowing. I whisper the last line of the story And her smooth cheek Settles on my shoulder, And the eyelashes flutter shut A...

    It's 4:08 pm. The room is silent Except for her breathing; Steady, Slow, And slightly forced. The window is open And outside the sky is Blue And the sun is Golden And everything is peaceful Out there, But in here, It's cold And with every breath Comes a tangible dread. T...

    Here's the harsh reality of life: We live, we die. Maybe you'll go down in history, But chances are You won't. And now we wait For the wind to carry us, For the ocean to guide us, For the lawn movers and leaf blowers To veer us off our paths, And for the afterlife, Hopi...

    When it comes to poetry I tend to be well-versed, And when it comes to clumsiness, I swear that I am cursed. When it comes to punishment, We get what we deserve, And when it comes to people, I tend to assume the worst. Sometimes I feign a headache Just to get out of school; I am known fo...

    She said "I did the best I could", But it was not enough. I tried to peel away her skin, But it was just too tough. I watched her eyes sink in her face, I watch her rot and waste away, I listened to her cry; Her life was just a lie. I chopped you up for dinner And I had to hold my...

    I've been known To cry myself to sleep, Forget my own secrets, Fall apart at the seams. You may have seen me dancing down the street Or staring at my feet Depending on the day. I sometimes wish for Sunshine and flowers, But sometimes I prefer the rain. You could find me All alone...

    Yesterday I packed a bag of multigrain Cheerios and I walked across the street And yesterday I sang quietly and I sang every note on key I fought with my mom, laughed with my friends, said hi in the halls at school I ran four miles, did my homework wrong, and followed all the rules But t...

    Our house smells like dead flowers And broken hearts Stale Soup in the kitchen, Bleach in the bathrooms, Dust in the basement And regret hanging from the ceiling. Our house smells like new furniture that already has cracks And old furniture full of lies. The lights glare at us And the sin...

    A movie is a vacuum of lies. It sucks you in and you're hooked until you are actually hoping that you're life turns into a movie. Even a film with a bad ending. Because even if the movie ends poorly, at least you mattered for the whole two hours of the rest of the movie, right? The way m...
