    It's time for me to walk alone to see where solitude takes me. To hear my footsteps echo and have them no longer scare me. To feel the world in every pore (not just someone I adore) and be able to go at my own pace and have no one to hurry for. And to taste each bite of every season ev...

    I'm very good at lying -- to others, no, but to myself... there's something somewhat satisfying in taking the truth and rejecting it completely. I guess it's called denial. When you don't accept what's right in front of you. I like to call it selective attention. Th...

    The blinking and the brightness is no substitution for the shadows, the lines, the strike marks and shorthand, the black ink on cream, and the scribbles of thought on patiently waiting paper....

    I’m writing to tell you that I’ve lost my mind. I felt it drop and I left it behind. I didn’t slow down, I didn’t look back, I just shrugged my shoulders and then took a nap. And nothing has changed, I’m telling you. Maybe I do things most others don’t do. Maybe I stood and sung me...

    Please, don’t make me say it, don't make me write it down, don’t make me admit it’s true and speak the words aloud. I’ve gotten so good at silence and ignoring my own words on love, on loss, on everything that has ever had some worth. I’ve mastered living in the now and buryi...

    I know that you are perfect, you've been so good to me. You hold me close and warm and love me so deeply. I know that I am blessed because you truly care; lots of guys are assholes and I know you’re truly rare. But there is something in me that just wants to know. I’ll never know ...

    Tell me am I flawless? Am I original? Do I make you smile? Please, just let me know. Do you think I’m worth it? Am I more good than harm? Am I classy? And beautiful? Am I full of charm? Whisper that I’m amazing, look into my eyes… you’re saying all the words but I’m only heari...

    Give me a hacking cough, or the worst case of the flu. Make me green, turn me purple, change me yellow or even blue. Give me some strange hormones that make me go insane. Stuff my nose so I can’t breathe, and headache I can’t tame. Won’t you diagnose me? And make it tangible. Somethi...

    Grains engraved with “I love you,” “hold me close,” and “love is true,” lie open in his calloused palm. Thousands upon thousands rest, on top of each other, his hand still and calm. My name, etched onto the back of each and every little grain of sand; perfect script, without a ...

    I know what I have to do, And I know I’m scared as hell. These things are screaming in my mind But they’re words I’d never tell. I can see the brighter days ahead While I’m drowning under this cloud. But no amount of anything Would ever get me out. I can tell I’m being childish An...

    When the voices just turn bitter, and when even they give up trying, when they fade into a whisper because all their hope is dying, when they realize it’s not worth it, because they’re not getting through; that’s when we’ll be perfect and I’ll forever be with you....

    My thoughts swirl and my ears are open, and I’m willing to listen to ease what’s broken, but words and feelings of foreign descent bustle on in and set up their tents and camp for a while, enjoying my thoughts until all of mine joined or were lost; they dance together, close and as one, b...

    And I hear your voice and wonder, I see your face and think. I read those words and remember when the tears mixed with the ink. I want your determination, but most of all, a glance a look my way that whispers “we could have another chance.” But I put my headphones in and avert my ey...

    Stop me in my tracks. Stand in front of the car and don’t flinch. And as I inch forward… don't even bat an eye. Saunter to my window. Ad when I roll it down, reach in – ignore my gasp of surprise – and unlock the door. And open it. And as I try to gather myself, la...

    You struck me, little by little. The first day, a sentence – that captivated me, consumed my thoughts, threw you into a new light. Next, a phone call – made by my tears to you, and you listened silently, but reassuringly. And after, a hug – one that went on a little too long, ...

    Pushed to the edge of this cascading, unstable bridge steel crushing, glass breaking, almost the stress I’m used to taking. Roaring white water swirls beneath once a friend, but now a fear I worked so hard to get us here but to no avail. My breath is rapid as I look around waiting for jus...

    Where did my strength come from? Why did I never doubt? What happened to only me so I’ve got it figured out? Who taught me I can do it all? How was I encouraged? What convinced me to do my best and promised it’d be worth it? Why am I beautiful and how can I admit it out loud? Where...

    I’ve got homework to do – I don’t want to see you. I speak his name – I’m cheating on you. I’ve got to finish my chores – They’re more important. I don’t hold your hand – I hate you. I’m in class and don’t respond – I’m not thinking of you. I miss a phone call ...

    The blinding light is flickering And then it fades to black The truth settles upon me: The light’s not coming back The darkness takes my breath And my thoughts begin to win Growing loud until a scream They remind me of my sin I start to run, but trip upon An obstacle not seen My patience...

    If I could write forever, I’d tell of a darkened past. A little girl caught up in hate, but somehow still in tact. She’s hiding somewhere In me, her fears become my own. She thrives in the chaos but loves to be alone. If I could write forever, I’d name the brilliant cause. The reas...

    Baby, I don’t know where to start, how can I explain what sits in my heart? Words can’t express that look in your eyes, the one of deep caring that keeps me surprised. The feel of you arms, and me wrapped inside, the touch of your finger on the tear I’ve just cried. Your hands on my wais...

    I’ve given you up like a broken friend like the mother I’m sure I’ll never know again like the innocence I lost just months ago like the demon unleashed out my bedroom window I’ve been scared to meet you on any night remembering the pain beneath the delight I know your disguise and I...
