    Is the origin of life a seed bursting forth embryonic petals — Or is it the lungs that encase a ripe, red heart echoing the soft, steel drum whispers of breath?...

    -tuesday morning- At one o'clock in the morning the sky is red charcoal in a wood-burning stove. Deep sangria ashes dusted across white clouds. -tuesday afternoon- You know sometimes I wish I could dispose of my emotions. It would be a freeing sort of experience, to think clearly withou...

    I mentioned that my favorite color is forest green; I didn't say it to get on his good side, which he joked about. I decided that his eyes are my second favorite shade…but I didn't tell him that. They are so clear. Like the way the sea is supposed to look. Natural, beautiful, vu...

    I want my words etched into the skyline and in the air that you breathe. I want to build mountains that reach the heavens that I don't believe in. Write my soul on parchment and release it into the ocean, let it swallow my emotions, ride along the waves, intoxicated with the heroin I bl...

    She felt the rush of adrenaline start in her fingertips as she moved the curtain, allowing light to dance across the dusty wooden floor. Outside, the trees were on fire in scarlet and gold...exactly how she had remembered Autumn to be. The crisp cool air biting her nose and cheeks, giving her face ...

    Scarlet hair a mess, burning scarlet cheeks, scarlet heart pounding, scarlet blood running. Standing in front of the mirror she could only see the flaws outlined in scarlet. But what a beautiful soul she held in such a fragile frame. An angel trapped in death's grasp. Glimmering eyes that hel...

    I am enslaved by embarrassment. Handcuffs for the handicapped. Orange jumpsuits scream the words I cannot. These bars are comforting, Casting shadows on my face. You may torment me from afar But I am safe inside this place. They all scream criminal, crook, Because labels are for loser...

    Am I just a photograph hanging on your wall? Not caring if it’s slowly fading Because it’s better to fade, than not be there at all. Or am I more like your mirror, Because when you look you see The dark reflection, Your need for a war, That took me years to ignore. No, I think where I li...

    Give me london on a rainy day, A spring in Ireland's green fields, Give me as many miles as it takes, To forget the smile you wear on your face. Let me write and let me sing, About what the new years might bring. Don't you write and don't you call, Forget I exist, I'd ra...

    Life is so fragile. I take it for granted sometimes because the world I live in moves at a fast pace. Trains. Cars. Planes. Boats. No one walks anywhere anymore. Because this is faster. More convenient. But in a second the train could crash. The car could ignite with fire. The plane could...

    If the streets were as clean as the sky, I'd walk barefoot all the time. Don't have to worry bout the hurry of the everyday life When I've got sand in my toes and sun in my eyes. And you, you're a wonder You're so complex to me. Never know what you are thinking, And...

    Let’s gather the stars and paint the sky tonight. Doesn’t matter what they say. We’ll run along the moonlight, Get lost in our mistakes. (Refrain) We’ll kiss and feel alive Again. Hold me and let me inside Your head. Kiss me, we’ll feel alive again. And the quiet Will hold u...

    I loved you once I lost you twice. You kissed me once And now we pay the price. You hugged me goodbye I smiled but I wanted to cry, Didn't want you to leave me Again. (chorus) But normal lives are for normal people, And normal people live boring lives. So, let's enjoy the me...

    Looking in the mirror I see cuts I see scars I see words burned Into my skin. I see devilish laughter I see bruises and tears I see my life hanging by a thread And my feet standing on the edge. I see eyes that are too small And hair a mess, I see an ugly face, A piece of trash. I see bl...

    I’m not a fire, You can’t just light me up and watch me burn. I’m not a slinky, You can’t stretch me to fit your needs. I’m not a sponge, You can’t expect me to soak in all of you and feel nothing. I’m not stupid, You can’t expect me to watch you with her and believe you still...

    Trust (n) To believe something as true Well I’m not a believer. I don't trust it. It feels like carrying an extra one hundred pounds In my heart I want to trust you But you have to earn it Show me that you won't take my flaws And spite me with them Don't be like everyon...

    i hold onto every word you say when it rolls of your tongue and slips past your lips every one. the sweet words that sink into my heart, and the sour words that pierce it. and when your words embrace me it’s warm like a summer breeze. they seep through my skin and they tingle at my finge...

    Who am I? I have pale white skin, which is a sharp contrast from the black clothes I wear. Layers of dark to hide the scars. Who am I? I sport pompoms that match my cheery smile. I learn cheers faster than any concept in my geometry class. Who am I? I hold your hand with hate in my heart and ...

    Willingly-- I take your hands Feeling your pulse Fast like mine, But it's not your touch that I crave… I watch your eyes Follow my body They're filled with lust and awe, But I wish your gaze wasn't so superficial… And your lips Graze mine Shivers bolt down my ...

    Have you ever been punched in the stomach? I have. I guess you can say metaphorically, but to me it feels real. That blow, when you lose a best friend, and your first love. Feeling the storm of anger building in your throat. Trying to swallow the scorching red lightening. But at th...

    I could just see the insults building up behind critical lips. His sharp teeth biting his tongue so as to not let them slip. Vicious blue eyes scorched my skin as they scanned my attire, eyebrows furrowed in an attempt to hold back a smirk. There I stood. And there he stood, as if he were roya...
