    His hands felt like promises. Fingers interlocked, He pulled me away from the self I thought I knew. He found me where I’d looked twice before, in the seemingly empty spaces among shrapnel from love battles lost, regret, and insecurities. But then, like promises often do, he broke away. ...

    6am wake-up call ignored. She was already awake, Drowning in melodies of silence Til high pitched beeps synced With flashing lights come to Warn her its now or never. 28 minutes and 36 seconds to shower. She Stands under shining silver shower head Beckoning refuge. Cold relie...

    Prophetic old man On the corner of west and Madison Sings cardboard truths with Simulated sanity and liquor breath. Tells me my time is near. Death will bring refuge my child. Sunday Morning sisters stroll reverently towards the church yard Clad in bleach-white gowns ...

    Let your innocence drive you to Dream and Expect, But await the cold touch Of Disappointment. Prepare And Maturity will Cushion the blow. Be not blind Young stranger. Your heart's intentions May mask the Order of reality, But know this: We must learn the bitterness of a fa...

    Like Seconds to sand, Eggs to hens, Music to moods, Fingers to pens … … You inspire me. And it's a strange kinda feeling, This “inspiration.” Like quenching cosmic thirsts With silent desperation. Holding onto air And feeling every nerve. Throwing tantrums to fight the ...

    I thought I could trust your porcelain perfection, but like my heart when you left, it broke. Kept breaking. You pummeled love into dusty insecurity, blowing it away like the paper reality you built me. And I can't bare to watch you do the same to her....

    Lets venture through our childish intentions For the last time. Leaving no purple rock un-popped Or flying zipper unsealed. Walk with me through dusty oceans, Snorting pixie dust again As we hold on to the last of our Rainbow sand. Whisper fairy tales to Yellow orchids Before your gard...

    Leap with me Faith Express yourself Courage. Bind together our last nerves. Plant the last seed coverage. Hold me close through the hurricane Accept my guilt as shameless blame. Watch the rain drops Protect me from the wind. I opened my eyes to let you in. Drink of my soul and feed on my pe...

    I’m leaking purples greens blues and yellows I’m leaking red because of a fellow Human being’s resistance to my cries. So I count the seconds passing by, Until my heart has swollen too large. Until my spirit decides to bombard My physical body for power unfound. Am I expecting anything...

    I had a dream of new born greens. I had a vision of hell. I had an urge to hunt down the wind But I only found an empty shell. The waves told me your secrets And all the lies you’ve engraved. The birds told me you were coming And that I should misbehave. They say I need quarantine To men...

    To whom it may concern, I don't sleep much at night. Thoughts of you keep budding Into visions of plain sight. To whom it may concern, I cried myself to sleep. And with agony and stifled screams I let the pain sink in too deep. To whom it may concern, You still walk in my dreams. ...

    They don't understand us. You and I. They can't understand That you are my Love, Loss, Riches, Hands, Smile, Vice, You are my everything. You bring out the Forever in me. The things I lock away And hide from the night Stole from the day. The things like my Great desire. ...

    Mirror mirror, Wide and tall, Will ever be Beautiful at all? Will I ever see elegance? Will I ever see worth? Will I have to conform To the public curse? I'm sorry I'm not fair Or that my nose is too wide. I'm sorry I'm not like girls on the pages Of books for brides...

    I've come to realize How selfish my poetry can be. For the most part my rhymes Have been all about me. And I can never seem to understand Why anything ever goes wrong. So I cant find a solution To keep this pain from stinging too long. My friends are all worried Some disguise it with ...
