    There was a child who stepped down every morning, Down from her princess bed that was two foot too tall, Onto her blue Cinderella rug, and out of her princess room. And the first sight she saw, she became. And that sight stained the insides of her eyelids, Remaining in her little princess b...

    They've been hiding in The blind spot, Right between your eyes. All the broken syllables, Spouting from My lips. What if... But why... You'll try? Not good enough To suffice For me. I'm a spicket With a leak And you are The garden I've been watering for A...

    The moon stood like a beacon; Lighting the tips of tree tops, Edges of grass gleaming white. The wind gently swayed back and forth; The world seemingly Tilted. He stood before me, Engulfed in breezy grass, Dangling my heart over my head. Face aglow with the white of the moon. Everythin...

    In this shallow basin The greatest ships have sank Light filters through A reminder Laced with missed opportunities And misconceptions, Regret. The water pools Soaking through to the bone Just beneath my knee But I feel it creeping up my stomach Gurgling in my throat Sloshing in front ...

    When I ask you something you can't explain, your feet seem to suddenly peak your interest... Is that a scuff on your shoe? A lace left to drag the floor? Damn the luck. All the times when you don't think quickly enough. Those two left feet that you can't dance with, the ones wit...

    Zip up those lips lock them and give me the key I'll tuck it away to stay in safe keeping Cover up those eyes discretion is advised here, give me the blindfold I'll hold it back and tie it Cuff together those hands and I'll hide the evidence so that it isn't evid...

    Have you ever seen your reflection in bath tub water? Me neither. Too many bubbles. My skin turned pink. All those freckles stood out and it reminded me of you. Sometimes I think I hear you singing along with me while I'm in the shower. It makes me laugh. But it's t...

    A pair of red ladybug spotted galoshes bound to bring a rhthym staggering here and there meandering off, not a care underneath the storm through the puddles thoughts slide off the tip of my tongue not quite formed yet still slippery from birth they flop over in the mud already drenched ...

    Those who seem to have mastered a certain hardy skepticism that can register earthquakes ten thousand miles away; They live among broken fragments- an unquiet darkness full of screaming secrets. Yet they have been heard, but chosen to be ignored. What foul dust floats in the wake of...

    I met, I secretly wrote your name in the corners of my notebook, I doodled hearts with our initials in them on my tests. I spoke, I imagined you saying the sweetest things back to me, I dreamed of the different shapes your lips made when you laughed. I admitted, I began wondering if you w...

    I wrote a letter to a dead boy the other day. Wait. Let me rephrase. I wrote a letter to a dead friend the other day; Neatly stacked all the pages; Folded it four times until it was almost square; And took black thread and wrapped it up until you couldn’t see the paper. Then I curled my h...

    On the second day of your absence, I find my thumbnails in the quick; my index finger twitching towards the phone. The weight of silence suffocating me; my arm flinches, returning back to hang at my side. I am stronger than a mere thought. I've been curled up in this ball for sometime no...

    My tongue is tries to gag me. Acting upon pure impulse, Heavier than the grief nestling down into the depths of my socks. My eyelids greet each other. Too hard to keep open, Heavier than the weight of the silence settling over my hands. My heart drops from my chest to my stomach. But stil...

    This lamp Vaguely lit Spills a dim light Across carelessly strewn Papers and books A coffee table covered With disregarded letters As though someone Cares to read them This fire Crackles softly A sigh of contentment In it’s place to warm A vacant home Seemingly pointless As tho...

    Steam rolls like an ocean wave Across the black top; Greeting the rubber lining along Random tires. But they don’t stop, The storm keeps them going; Keeps them slicing through puddles along the interstate; No thought of slowing. Push through, Pushing on. Rain water spins across the t...

    I've been trying and failing at this for days now; but still the truth will never find me. The rhythm, a drum, pounding in my chest, almost hypnotic...will you close your eyes this time? Thoughts play hide and go seek, sometimes daring themselves to leap from the tip of my tongue; out int...

    I'm the suffocated coal miner the teenage flatliner that designated drunk driver tossed underneath the wheels. I'm the anorexic starver the cancer patient's daughter that once-perfect carver hospitalized because she told. I'm the widowed 22-year-old the OI baby too fragile to hold ...
