    I’m at a block My thoughts drain out, But you-you remain. Looming figure, you run forward. Talk down to me- Your patronizing words are the snare. Push me away and pull me forward, You leave me lost. I try to defend myself- You give me a brilliant retort “shut-up.” The pat...

    You do again, I see you do-- Change the locks and fix the cage, You guide me too, With your whip you hold tightly So your knuckles are blue. Oh and you desperately try- Attach the mask with glue, Dare to claim that you are cute and innocent, too. You think I am deaf to you? I hear...

    I do not think I can exactly declare My source of inspiration Like sticking a pin on a map. A map unfolds Wider than the car: It’s impossible to fully Understand and interpret, The red and blue ink stamped markings, Expanding out like veins. Inspiration, it settles in the crea...

    He was not sorry. 56 days dropped behind, He followed me into the crowd And pierced me with a stare. I drudged along and jumped from the shadows, He caught me in his snare, He understood nothing, And hurt us both. We were trapped in his anger And he refused to heal Now, I hide besi...

    She would have to be a choker necklace. Bold and daring, An intricate pattern of crystals and lace. You would be lost staring into the angled facets Of her personality. Oh, clichéd duality! She divides herself unevenly, She bakes cookies with a smile, but later she Bites back with a ...

    If I stuck my hand out in front of me, I did not feel air. My palm pressed against the surface of cool, curved glass. Upside down and out of place, a fish bowl encapsulated me. When I looked up, the glass bottom was my sky. Life around me continued and I witnessed it all. I noticed every change and ...

    Your voice quivered, It was an unstable path You packed it down in my ears As feet crunch through twigs, Destroying the brambles. Images blend, The vibrant disintegrating leaves Turn from fragments to whole fire. With your smothering hand You point a finger; an arrow. Draw back...

    He still refuses to fully leave. Separated, but he returns, Impossible to forget- His eyes are always on me. Same time, the sky is splattered with black paint. I pretend-don’t notice, hands, Tightly bound fists, hanging at his side. I am alone and Orion sifts the crowd to find me. ...

    Harsh white tiles map out the room, The light gray pattern is the mimicry of flaws. Bundles of bodies hover in their own secret groups. I lack-I lack-I do not know. Negativity crawls in the crevices Of the pale painted cinderblock walls. If I like-they call “obsessed.” What I do no...

    My words bounce off the walls, The sounds sink into crystal nothingness. Friendship is the facade. Shattered glass resembles your voice-your temper. But, we once had a relationship, Trauma bonded us together, But I repaired myself while you- Sit comfortably explosive and taped toget...

    I am stuck here again. I am faced with a writing assignment in which I have to write about something personal that I really don’t want the world to know about. Of course my mind settles on the same two topics as the options are listed on the board. My parents’ divorce still seems to make up a bi...

    I feel the balloon within me. Picturesque and unflawed, Shining bright violet hues, And slowly expanding I am consumed By a bittersweet emptiness. Scrapbook eyes are taped With disintegrating photos, Trembling memories. Mouths, pulled and sewn Into crescent shapes. Cotton candy clouds ...

    Hidden eyes lock away the portal. She bathes in tears And artificially colors life. Vivid ocean blue blankets The cold sink water and Purple picturesque crystallized stones Mask dirt sand. She sculpts her pain into a passion, Smears it on canvas, displayed. Every ...

    Sculptured angel draws an old metaphor Investigating electric passion. Wild Harmony models for that masterpiece. Shards is then art, Raw canvas breaks, Her nude fashion is waste. Come, silhouette, See a deep purple smear from our mess Use, you do, surreal empty symbol, Full pictur...

    As we reach a certain time in our lives, our flaws become well-defined, our mistakes are evident, and our questions become interminable. The companionship with life itself obtains a thousand meanings and most of them are not possessed. Love can mean nothing and everything all in the same ...

    She picks at the scab to test The wound. Crimson Memories flood to the surface, A familiar sight. A Peculiar significance in the Reality of repeatedly destroying the natural Band-Aid and watch it grow back to only be mercilessly ripped off again, to satisfy a perpetual curiosity. ...

    She dropped the Chains and looked at Her hands, through the Pallid skin her eyes Traced the pattern of blue ribbons; a Mess of veins. She releases The heart she had been carrying. The feelings Have not faded, but she Couldn’t quite grasp Them as they hung in the air, Head...

    The fried egg resting upon the plate was like the sun living among the clouds in the sky. The famished unmindful boy creates a sunset as the glowing yellow yolk mixes with the ruby red jam. Within seconds the opalescent sky is replaced with...

    The blank word document stares back at me, the white screen glares, and my mind goes empty. What is there to fear in a poem? It can’t bite … It haunts my brain as I wander through The internet. Turn on the mp3 player. Music echoes through my ...

    A splinter of light. It gleams through the dark night sky, giving depth to the young child’s eyes. She stares in wonder and her fascination grows, What is this thing that appears to shine so bright? And all the scientific realities don’t matter to her; It is still a mirac...

    It was inevitable, reality was going to demand recognition. Living life steadily in a masquerade, is a mere allusion to gain protection. A false visual aspect of life may be nice to look at, but it is not genuine. A sham. No real smile, just a Maginot line, which continuously fails,...
