    You gave me these wings hidden Underneath my skin that only break free On your command. They protrude from my spine, Running the base of my neck to lower torso. Made by your words, and weaved by your touch They stretch toward horizon, And you give them the courage to fly there, Believi...

    Don’t let this be the day I die. When you left so did half of me. I try to get that part of me back But you get in the way... As if you need that half of me To remember what You should have tried hard to forget. I can’t have my own self back Without you in addition to it. So I g...

    If I could find any happiness at all in this billowing storm, It’d be a miracle. One not comprehended. Rain pouring down, feeling every droplet One by one stinging my skin. Causing a frown and a furrowed brow. If only I could see straight. Walking on, I try avoiding the puddles Eac...

    I taught my hands how to dance. Like hip hop on blank paper, Underneath my painted lashes. Blinking, black raindrops On my small world, Yet I’m still happy. Even though I know I’ll never be the one To have your full attention, I still beg. Silently. And even though you say We can o...

    I make a perfect disguise For the wings threatening To explode from my spine. I don’t dare you to touch them, As fine hairs Turn to thorns every time I am encouraged to fly. I find my own ways of touching ecstasy. I am an artist. And no one ever said every art was perfect. I fend off ...

    I write because voice cannot Comprehend what silence has to offer. Because an [empty] passion strung on a line of Want, but not need is in equivalence To love without you. Leaving me empty and needing more. I write to sympathize with reality and Conjure up a way with words That voic...

    If I could ride on the back of horizon I’d slip off and let the sun Drag me back to where I came from. Reach my arms out as far I could And beg those stars to notice me. Cut the rope that separates the night from day And run around with reality. Create a noose for the hopes and dreams Th...

    I want to be remembered when I’m gone. Recognized and exalted like MJ after his final moonwalk-the way his fame reopened like a sewn up hole in faded jeans-after he was dumped back into the earth from which he came. I don’t want to leave unnoticed. I want to be known for the things I say and the...

    Close your eyes and let the Feeling take you as you Get lost in the moment and Lose your mind. Let it tickle your soul, Kiss your cheeks, and Whisper in your ears just what You wanted to hear. Let it move your body Back and forth, Side to side. As you scream with the Sweet unexplaina...

    I am a prisoner to words unspoken. The ones that mattered but remained All too silent. Returned to the earth before ever being born. Officially born. Created…yet never discovered. Like an aborted baby. A thought, an epiphany, an idea. But killed in the womb. Like nothing ever happened. ...

    Its all in a days work. Nothing goes right. Caught up in the tragedies and scenarios that Don’t involve you. A revised piece of lit that goes worse than the roughie. Turned down by life itself, remembering That you’re only the rookie. Life keeps you going right, in circles. A clear ...

    I write Although I am as useless as my left hand I'm not ambidextrous But my heart is. Pulled in 27 different directions Still unafraid of its breaking point. And when the pulling stops, It lies stretched out on the ground. Yet still ready for the next blow. And speaking like it knows ...

    I am the bottle, and you are the consumer. You walk along the aisles scanning quickly. And then you calmly pick me up, examine me, And express your approval. You then toss me into your shopping cart. Continuing along you add other items Throwing them on top of me, tossing me from side to si...

    The feelings inside me overflow as they override my senses. I'm too caught up to function. They penetrate through me, seeping into every part of me. It's pretty awkward how I balance them all. I mean I’m basically putting on a show because it's not real; it's just how I appear. But there is one em...

    Im sick of the changes that you seem to make And involuntary steps that I am forced to take My heart is so fragile, I can feel the heat Coming closer as I try to find my own beat You take a break and I take your place You call my name, but I turn my face You walk straight and I'll turn right...
