    I like the smell of my roundtip pen The smell of you peeling tangerines Your melodic laugh I wish I could download it and hit replay when I'm idle I like the smell of fresh cut grass Holding your hand, jumping into puddles I used to avoid them when I was alone I like the smell of leave...

    I breathe in the loud serenity Feel the warmth in all the pretty Watch life like an old film As I feel its beat like a hymn The little pebble that skims Flies far away as the moonlight dims Will I ever get the same chance Or will it disappear like shifting sands I place in the bind of my...

    Wearing Confidence like a brand new fur coat Disgorging bullets I catch each one between my teeth I dodge your every attack As if executing intricate footwork If my world was a snow globe You can turn it upside down Make it snow But you cannot touch me Through the thin glass I trace the ...

    Aggrandized lashes fan her lashes which stare like cold pearls pierces through glass and stone Long red nails mindlessly finger her coiffure--intricately weaved in gold and jade Her crimson lips purse as she ponders How do I survive? Will I ever escape this labyrinthine of schemes, tr...

    Prior to opening the hardcover of Pride and Prejudice, I wasn’t exactly excited about diving into an apparently stuffy classic by Jane Austen.

    As I walk down the narrow pebble filled trail I squint ahead and my eyes are stung with a huge cloud of smoke I scramble to fish out my mini flashlight I grasp hold of it, but my perfumed lotion acts as a lubricant and it slips out Of my reach I crouch over like a hurt koala cub And my hands ...

    I promise to be physically and mentally beside you, I would be more loyal to you than the crimson hue that embodies a rose. Even when all the petals turn reddish-brown and fall to the freshly cut grass one by one, my love for you will only germinate. When you fall ill, I will take your temperature a...

    Bumpy, like an evil red eyed frog’s skin Rough, like a dry and chapped elbow Not as shiny as little Anna’s new tap shoes This orange was the last of the last Isolated, unwanted, left at the bottom of the bin Neglected like the dusty worn-out teddy bear left at the corner of the room Bu...

    Help, where am I? Am I hiding inside the unopened books in the dusty library? Where am I? Am I sluggishly crawling on the cold, tiled floor? Where am I? Am I wandering around within a black, burnt treeless and grassless forest? Where am I? Am I vigorously pumping my arms and legs struggling to ri...
