    My mind is dark I have no light To shine around the bend, To discover truth As I search my head. I try to recall Phrases, sayings, words That frequented Her smiling lips. I scour my thoughts, And yet, I can’t Remember a single one. Nothing stands out. Apparently love d...

    I feel so alone, No one here knows That my mother is dead My future; unknown. I haven’t told anyone- I don’t have the strength To remain strong all over To not tip over the brink. The Mask of Happiness Carves marks in my face- Yet I continue to wear it, Keep my smile in place. ...

    Waters are rising, But there is no high ground. All that’s left Is this crumbling peninsula, Upon which I must tread. Surrounded by dark waters, Menacing and cold.. My progress is slow Down the tiny trail. Winds tear at my hair, Threaten to blow me over. Sharp rain drops slice my face....

    I am mourning, Losing myself Since you left me. I am alone, by myself. I am hiding, Blending in- Trying to escape myself, My hope wearing thin. I am searching, Seeking out A drop of comfort Despite the drought. I am healing Recovering somehow... But I cherish my scars- They show...

    I'm not a very bold person. Not really an aggressive, hard-hitting kind of girl. Or so I thought. My first year of high school, I had a pretty full plate. I was taking all honors classes, played varsity golf, was a member of every student organization in existence.... so when my friend Genes...

    There are no words For the damage you've done. I'm now at rock bottom, Congratulations, you've won. Go ahead, take it, The worthless remnants of my trust, My ruined, wasted heart, Please excuse the dust. I had expected a lot of you, Too much, I now see. You're no...

    Perfect happiness so fleeting, I wonder if it existed at all. Days of deafening silence. Hope falls away with my smile. Running into each other Here or there, Our eyes drawn to each other Refreshing our memories And our happiness. A sudden nervous kiss Bursting the seams of time Lasting l...

    Looking in the mirror... I see my smile is bright, Held in place by feelings burning strong, My whole expression is alight: Thank you, deceptive smile. My eyes are brilliant and shining Not filled with tears or down-cast, That happy glimmer is kept in place: I owe you one, beguiling eye...

    Caught up in a wave of bliss, Then pulled under by pain. A tsunami of longing A hurricane of doubt The dark waves are raging. The current: too good to be true. Smooth sailing ahead- You and me on the beach, Our love flowing and ebbing with the tide. Suddenly The water becomes rough, V...

    I consider the lies Made up of light Reflecting in the mirror, The image of who I’m perceived to be. Hair the color of wheat, Flowing around my head Threatening to strangle me, Stop the words. My slight lips That struggle to hold up the smile I’m so well known for. Big cheeks Hel...

    Your lips on mine, Shivers down my spine, A smile stretching across my mouth, Your hand slowly heading south. I grasp and pull up on your fingers, On my stomach allowing them to linger, Your soft lips caressing my own I find myself suppressing a moan. Down your back my hands are sliding ...

    There was a time my heart belonged to you, You filled my every thought and left me blind. My love was misplaced though burned strong and true, You played with my heart then left it behind. Despite bitter pain, sweet thoughts still linger, Ghosts of the past choking the air I breathe; So I gi...

    You reach for my hand; My thoughts are far away. Your smile is full of love; Mine is distracted and forced. Swirling words fill my head, Words that will choke me Upon leaving my mind. I will stutter and slur The heavy words Already filling my mouth. I imagine your reaction While I someh...

    I am King Midas reincarnate. Though everything I touch Does not turn to gold, I wear a golden mask of pure bliss, Happiness frozen into my face, Perfection etched into my expression. Everyone around me is happy too, Perfectly, blissfully unable to feel pain; And I have made them this ...

    Remember the simplicity Of being sure and naïve? Being confident and capable Of whatever you choose to believe? Not having experience, Or in turn, the need To understand distrust, Or how to disagree. Remember that first heartbreak, That confused kind of pain? That deep red hurt Leav...

    I built A Wall around my heart A Wall of hopes and dreams. A few bricks for who I wanted to be, One or two for the life I would lead. But the majority were for the man I would love, Who would be completely perfect, for me. You showed up out of nowhere, Vying for my attention, Not tall,...

    How do you describe this thing that happens between us –? And why is it called a kiss? When happiness overflows, And more than perfection exists. The chemistry and friction Electrical energy in between, Drawing us together like magnets Or some other force, unseen. Your lips on mine, ...

    The sun is hovering, Lingering, High in the sky; Sinking oh so slowly As time races by. The harsh rays have softened And cast a mellow pink glow, That tickles, Teases, The horizon below. The blue waves are calm, Serene, Beneath the radiant orb. Reflecting the glow like a mirror, Ra...

    Cuando estás cerca, yo siempre sonrío, (When you’re around I always smile,) todos los días contigo me río. (Every day you make me laugh.) Me haces que quiera cantar, (You make me want to sing) o ir a una fiesta a bailar. (Or go to a party and dance) Yo intento estudiar, (I try to st...

    You make me smile wider With each sweet thing you say You make me laugh harder At the impersonations and jokes every day You make me sing louder To those sappy songs about love You make me blush deeper When you ask what I’m thinking of. You make me feel comfortable When I’m used to fe...

    I wonder if you know how much I long For how it used to be. Have you already forgotten? I wonder if there is a magic word I can say To make you look at me again. Would you listen if I said it? I wonder if everyone telling me to move on Knows my heart is broken. Are they suggesting I leav...

    I am not weak. Though tremors rack my body And speed my pulse; Though pain opens my tear ducts And crushes my heart into dust - I can look into your eyes Through the waves of pain. Memories carry me And help me through A sliver of hope, pushing too. Yet you don't even consider me Wor...

    I hate myself For missing you For wanting you For remembering you. For remembering us, And how perfect we were, How happy we were. How strong we were. And yet we crumbled, Under some unseen pressure We're nothing more than dust, Particles of love too small To put back together....
