    A silly girl floating Through the air by a Skyscraper skirt milk teeth Chomping down on pink icing Chomping into the world She drifts On and on without a cause Never held by tomorrow Or the days ahead Tossed relentlessly down a Path of Sunshine piercing morning curtains Sleeping pills with pink D...

    He laughs and My insides spill out of my body Onto a plastic floor- Red and ugly and crying. I reach out to him, He lifts me up and Somehow I keep falling, I'm not sure what for, but It always ends in Laughter, spilling and Disaster. I am tragedy: A giant accident With a thousand casualties. Yet it ...

    The pin-up girl Who tried her best She's tired, now, Put her to rest. The chin-up girl The girl who dreamed She's not herself, It's the disease. Her skin is splotched, Those open wounds Infection spread, Will kill her, soon. The girl who tried, The girl who laughed, She's looking through An hourglas...

    Sometimes thunder sounds like a piano Or conversations in the sky. As if the clouds join together To have an argument Or play some sort of fighting song. Sometimes when it storms I imagine the two fighting sides in my spirit: The one that yearns to give up And the one that refuses. And ...

    The door is closed -I wait- My mind is blank and wired not to Communicate. My mouth is shut -I think- My body takes All these things and collects them. My heart is small -I know- It carries all this angst and it waits-...

    Machine won't speak- it doesn't try There's no point asking, Won't reply Machine will wait for the command, but will not answer To demands Machine is I, and it is me Machine is fueled by Self-esteem Machine is hard, machine is bold Machine can operate ...

    My mother is music and raindrops; Laughter and crisis- She is sudden and all at once. My father is business and luxury; Midnight and silence- Slow to come and then already there. My brother is chaos and shock; Slumber and sleep-talk- Ready to be wherever you are. ...

    I felt it, once- The urgency, and ability, to Slip you in my pocket mouth And peg you from the inside out. I feel that, now- You’re hanging by a thread. You’re on the tip of my tongue, You’ve already spread your wings and gone. I see it, now- How I can put your fragments together...

    I saw her turn into a ghost and slowly flicker way She whispered loud, but said not much Before I watched her fade The rain was humming on a seal Drumming in my mind The rhythm sparse, the logic gone The purpose of it swayed I felt a feeling in my bones That didn't have a nam...

    All of these bones They moan, and say to lie and rest down here- While all around me is Calling. All that I know As long as I last I know I won't- I won't- let them destroy These things. Roll down on a wheel: I'll bare the weight of stars and sleep on my back- I won'...

    Dawn spills Bones rise Dancing neath' Colored sky Kite that coasts High and dry- What's the matter, in this life? Hands plow Deep inside Hours pass Hunger cries Bleak of night Calm of day- Did it matter, anyway? Write your name To a stone Speak it loud Plead it k...

    Anatomy says we are muscles and bones, Woven together with magnets and shelled by skin. Science says that we are a development Of theories, Chemicals, created by Reactions. Logic says that we have one hundred Years to live, and some even less than that Because logic says we are A S...

    Hell turns to ice When she's lying in bed (With a halo's glow wrapped 'round her head). If I'd pick twice At my logical threads (Like the teddy bear she holds in the medicine bed) I'd have a mind to think she'd pass, tonight. And I breathe at the pace That the heart machine makes ...

    When my mother could first speak, she asked her parents for piano lessons. Hearing piano music made her fingers hunger to play. Her parents thought it might be a phase, but she persisted. If they weren't so poor, they might not have given it a second thought. They knew it would be a huge sacrifice, ...

    Well, you want all the answers with the little things, You want to hide your thoughts in shadows- Paper bags- and, Riddled schemes. You want to pet the fire, call the beast: be on edge, Where all the deepest seams of life burst- In your dreams- and, In your bed. And I want to watch your ...

    I went in search to find you With a lantern in my eyes, In temper you were standing- Beneath the glossy Northern Lights. I went in need to tell you, How, my bedpost has turned ill. I’ve stayed up, lately, searching, For some useless time to kill. These days I’ve been lacking, A sch...

    I watch your worried brow, Stand apart in restlessness, Somehow, I know your fear of Red bricks burning into imminent nothingness, And, Piles of green falling from beneath us. You dream of Cigarette smoke, and Lung cancer, and A middle-aged mark with nothing to chase after. I watch your hi...

    He spits sunflower seeds; I know he believes in jealousy – But I, I believe that nothing Could change the way he looks at me. So if envy were To creep up my bedroom – Kind of like the way the sun dawns Through streaks of inspiring light – I know I wouldn't make room For magazines to c...

    I wake up in a mess of you, Overboard, we're overthrown. We're off the walls, we're off the charts, I'm just another record heart. I change my mind and back again, You've caught me by my tail, old friend. And here we go, we're boomerangs, Airborne, will we never change? The spotlight com...

    And when she walks, she walks in glory. And when she speaks, she speaks in stories. And when she shouts, she shouts down walls; And when they fell, she watched it all. And when she dreams, she carves divides; And when she wakes, dreams trail behind. And when she writes, her dreams prevail; ...

    I remember walking in the tall building that I had believed to be a church. Maybe. Maybe not. It was still hard to see by how I had to keep pushing up those glasses that still didn’t fit. And I remember being confused. I remember people were crying and stuffing tissues to their faces, and...
