  • Poetry > Free Verse
    I used to love to watch my mother wrap presents It was magical Seeing her hands Quick and nimble with the scissors Never needing to stop Never making the slow, clumsy cuts like I made The slicing of the paper Making that certain sound that tickled my ears And the precise way everything alway...

    In the middle of a field, with the grass around me, I seek clarity. I am bombarded with the clutter and noise of life everyday, yet here I can sort through my thoughts and dissect them one by one. One thought at a time; one action at a time. No multitasking or juggling. Fine work and true effort com...

    Most times when a movie is released about a high school girl, the movie follows a general path to destruction. Those movies are almost never successful because the same story is retold and it is nothing like reality, the jokes are corny, and any real high school girls can safely say they cannot rela...

    I don’t know where I am or why I’m here The things around me don’t make any sense My eyesight is too hazy to see clear Yet everything I see is so intense Then all at once the settings start change And fragments of my past begin to show But still to me it does not seem too strange That ...

    You’re like a drug I knew you were bad for me Yet I still craved you And I felt so liberated When I broke things off But it didn’t take long For me to want you back More than I’ve ever wanted anyone But I know things will be the same As they were before The pain, the tears And I’m...

    I opened the creaky mailbox, with the broken hinge that my Dad keeps saying he’ll fix. The mail is here which is no surprise since I staked out by the window that overlooks my front yard to watch the mail truck arrive. I’ve been doing that for the past 3 weeks. There is a moderate amount of mail...

    No one even thinks about me About little old me I’m lost in the crowd Everyone the same With no way to escape Others neglect me Walk all over me Pick at me Leave me out in the cold Without a second thought I want to get away Move up in the world But I can’t leave I’m stuck he...
  • Poetry > Free Verse
    We were so great together Everyone thought so You were my best friend And more I thought we’d really make it All the way But you changed You turned on me And became something I didn’t want Someone I didn’t know You were my biggest enemy And more I could no longer trust you And t...

    They stared us down And we knew in that instant That we were going To fight for it Slowly moving Backing up and making a Sort of growling noise Warning us to back off We walked like jackals When they see their prey Stalking and silently saying “You have no chance” We made the...

    I hate crying. I especially hate crying in front of other people. My eyes get red and puffy, my nose runs and I look like a mess. It’s something I avoid at all costs, but today I don’t care. Everyone’s crying and we can’t help it. We are all sad because life will never be the same. I turn ba...
  • Poetry > Free Verse
    Clash of eyes Spark of heat Trembling hands Words so sweet Pounding hearts Shyness fades Rely on each other Promises made Sincere gestures A caring that’s strong Invincible together It can’t go wrong Feeling so high With nothing above One never forgets Their first love...

    I don’t want to do it At least I don’t think so But then why is my every thought Consumed with how easy it would be Ridiculously easy And it would end all of this Every misery, every guilt, every loneliness Every bad feeling Gone It wouldn’t take much A few extra pills, a quick sli...
  • Poetry > Free Verse
    If you wanted I would give myself to you Completely I would wear my heart on my sleeve Though its cliché and I resent it And every other emotion you wanted From me And while I am a calm person For you I’d become the most vicious Of girls If that’s what you wanted Even while it wou...

    Broken bodies Limbs tangled Splayed across the floor Like ragdolls They do compare Bent at awkward angles It’s obvious what is done And what will be Of these lonely souls Their eyes Burn holes in the paths they follow Though it’s clear the owner is Not seeing Not actually looking ...
  • Poetry > Free Verse
    Sometimes I feel the need to cry And simply cannot say why And other times which I can’t track My mood becomes foul and black I can’t control or suppress the urge When indifference and apathy surge And sometimes a force of energy Courses through and seizes me I cannot count the ...

    Though we never had a clue It came without a warning Some may say our time was due But they were not the ones mourning It came without a warning Though others will have their point of view But they were not the ones mourning They don’t have to start anew Though others will have their p...

    The Winter Time The winter days slowly pass by Dark and gloomy, cold and gray The approaching summer keeps hopes high The wind blowing sounds like a sigh And the clouds perform as if in a play The winter days slowly pass by The sun may show, always quiet and sly The ground is wet, the...

    Promise me a thousand lies Tell me things will get better Everything will work out Make me believe That I can trust you Prove to me by example Show me you’re past Tell me you went through this too Make me believe That I can trust you Tell me that life is hard But everyone goes throu...

    A beautiful flower Colorful and bright Shines in the sun Steals all the light A beautiful flower Grows strong and tall Attracts all the bees And does not cling to the wall A beautiful flower Is beautiful now But once hid scars And felt weak somehow This beautiful flower Used to be...

    It’s not my fault I never did anything to him So why does he insist On toying with my life Like I am worthless Threatening to break me From my bond on earth Just so he can take me away with him And show me off He is so peculiar He just keeps looking at me Bringing his face close to min...

    Not a happy smile But a guarded one Maybe even a bit of a smirk That’s hiding something Behind white teeth Clenched Refused to be spoken Dying to escape Held in tighter Or risk letting out A sea of regret Keep back your words As hard as you can One slip And you’ll have to face the...

    For one brief Moment in my life I actually thought I wanted to be like you To be your friend And act like you I thought I wanted what You have Because it seemed Like you had everything I thought that was What I wanted Before I realized that I am lucky Not to be you Or be your frien...

    Pouring down, clouding my life Changing my world by removing the strife Wash me clean of prior regrets Drowning deep; soaking wet Forget what happened, erase the old Let the past slide off, and the new unfold A fresh beginning; a clearing mist No more conflicts; they’re all dismissed Start...

    My fear deepens as I look around I can’t tell the difference I don’t see a change Everything seems normal But nothing is right Everyone is identical Just as the plain as the next I don’t feel unique; I want to be noticed But how can I when we all look alike? Equal, just the same, and...

    A mild breeze sweeps back my hair I close my eyes and take it in It smells of nature with a hint of sugar Still sweet from the passing of Halloween The leaves that change; once a boring green But autumn came and brought their colors to life Now reds and browns and oranges Cover the trees I u...
