    We used to live and laugh and play Leave play dough out to bake all day Play pretend with Barbie Dolls We'd kiss the sky goodnight We'd spill chocolate on our clothes And laugh if rain tickled our nose Blow out all the dandelions We'd kiss the sky goodnight One new color e...

    I don’t want you to go. I realized this, As I sat on my toilet. That’s where I tend to do the most of my thinking, Which may seem perverted, But it still seems To get the work done. I was thinking about you as always. Thinking about those long kisses And long hugs. Thinking a...

    I like it when You lay on my shoulder. The soft silence Echoes throughout the room. My blanket is warm, And it’s wrapped around our bodies Like the stretch of our clothes Sticking to our skin In ninety degree weather. My hands, Touch your body. Softly stroking Little circles In your ...

    Sometimes I feel Like you’re seeing right through me. Like you’re really not there When you’re holding my hand. Can’t you tell me That this isn’t what you had planned? That you’re kissing my lips, ‘Cause you live on demand? You don’t want me to hurt, ‘Cause you know that I...

    “Have you ever had butterflies in your stomach?” “Yes.” My hand Curls inside of yours, My knees resting on your body. And our heads sitting together, Noses touching. “Have you ever worn cherry flavored lip gloss?” You laugh, Mold your lips into mine For a quick second. ...

    I’m standing here now with luggage in each hand. He’s standing in front of me, breathing my air, with his hand wrapped around my cheek pushing hair out of my face trying not to cry. He’s so close, so very close. He comes closer. His mouth dips down, caressing mine. He stays there for what seem...

    When I was little, every summer I would go with my mother to the day care she taught in the south side of Chicago. At twelve years old, I played with under-privileged African-American children who had nowhere to venture in the summer except a little warehouse filled with children’s toys and a smal...

    I remember Eating a kiwi. Dark, green and moist. Juices, Dribbling down the ark of my chin. And Avoiding the eyes that weighed My plate filled with Brussels sprouts, And roast beef sandwiches, Just as juicy, But much less appetizing Then the smolder of green Broken in my mouth. I re...

    It’s lukewarm love that melts over me when I first wake up. Like the tantalizing sweetness of the stretch of sunlight in the morning, stirring itself in the folds of carpet, and warming the mold of my body in the velvet overlap I sleep inside. That peace that fills itself inside the silence of the...

    And as your feet moved towards the door I wanted to start over. “Hey, My names Lori. And yours?” I imagine that you’d stop. Your feet glued to the floor Your eyes stuck On the Cold Snow you could see Past the small opening Of the doorway. “I love jelly, And daisies ...

    Dear Mother, You weren’t much of a mother. But still, I could have used you, you know. That sounds bad, when I say it like that, but that’s exactly what I think. When I was seventeen, I had sex for the first time. The only advice I had heard from my friends, was that it was amazing, ple...

    I was scared to tell you, and that is why I didn’t. You would understand if you were in my situation. Even though we took the chance, even though I promised I would never run away from you if, perhaps, something like this did happen, I ran anyway. I know I shouldn’t have, and if I hadn’t, I wo...

    It’s scary. Crazy Everything in this world Has grown According To the persuasion of Paris. I like spaghetti, But I can’t fit into the jeans that come with it. I love ice cream, But I spill it on the fifty-dollar t-shirt I spent My hard Working Money on, And nothing … Nothing… ...

    Beautiful, Beyond comparison. The way sky etches On our earth. As if it is a canvas. Stretched. And stretched. Each new day, each new paint, Clearer, concise, colorful. All covered By plaster and plastic. Metal and madness. Is it considered… Ridiculous to see the world In ...

    To whisper me secrets Only my ears, lone depths Can prowl. Courageous carrier, Shrinking inside the depth Of it’s misery. What can become of my sanity? Tranquilizing peace, In the hostility of the words That tickles the trace Of the back of my spine. Cold… Rack my body By the fruit ...

    Juices Dribbling down My chin, It chews, quivering, At the honey suckle taste, Of the sun. Slight sweetness, Tinged, with resentment. Tingling taste Prolonged rebellion On the palette Of my tongue. … To eat Or not to eat… Poisonous toxins Delicious Intri...

    I know that I shouldn’t be so confused. It was only a necklace… a stupid, beautiful necklace. That kind of necklace with the tiny sparkle at the dip of a silver heart. That kind of necklace. And I guess I should ask you why you gave this to me. Why I found it in my locker with a little blue bow ...

    And I’m kinda nervous Tongue-tied Twisted. And it’s kinda silly I know. But I can’t help but blush, And hear myself giggle As I see you smile And move your feet to walk away. And I’m kinda strange, With my smile that won’t disappear With my fast-talking-gibbe...

    The sun was setting that glorious day. The sky was clashing in a weave of red and orange and a slight yellow stretched down below the horizon, creating a dip of lemon throughout the mass of gray mountains lining against the sky. Her hair was the color of silver, and it flittered through the winds ...

    I’m not expecting To have crowns thrown at my feet. Perhaps if I hadn’t believed That every one was significant I’d believe in myself. But I don’t, And we aren’t And each individual is just as unique As the unique person sitting in the corner. So does that make us all conformists?...
