    Let me in, let me in. Don't make me climb over the fragile fences you've set around you. Instead of feeling truly forgotten, I feel alive. That broken-hearted remedy you knew so well, ingesting stained-glass words and decaying honeysuckle, seems to have worked its magic. Let me bri...

    One morning I was thinking, that in place of merely sinking, something different should be done this very day. While my hands were cold and shaking and each breath was short and quaking, my head was running full of words to say. Never moving, never blinking, I would sit there only thinkin...

    If your tears were a color... ...Very strange of me to ask... What stain would they be?... ...Purple, Green, or maybe Black... A certain type of red... ...Or a requiem of hue... But what would be the slightest chance... ...Of the color, Ocean Blue?......

    You made me a promise, long ago, An un..break..able one. I was yours… to have and to hold, till death did . .. we . .. ... part. Remember what was left of the love that killed us both? I always will. I meant it when I said, "I do"...

    Watching the stars move about in their beds of velvet I can’t help but stop to think, “What have I done?” ...how youthful... ...but the words stick to the roof of my mouth and taste like tainted honey... The threads holding up this system slowly fracture and corrupt, Diminishing to ...

    Stumbling along in the blindness of your heart You seek what you must have yet didn't need from the start. A path filled with thorns, lust, anger, even dread. Do you still have the courage to move on, forge ahead?...

    Blackening shards of heat-stained glass leach blood-red ink from every pore. Bone-white skies become clouded, murky, as soot moths steer away from the moon. Snapped photos fray and pass on into the void of back-lighting and forgetful sighs. Emptied waste bins of blank scripts and white-wash wa...

    I decided to write nonsense for once. Like when you wanted to excavate a way to Asia. Like how I decided to transform shards of glass into paper cranes. Or even the time when we wanted to try to fly. But no one wants to hear such nonsense. Especially you, but someone has to tell it. Let me claw your...

    I seek to see the shrouded face of the angel that I’ve found. She fell from on high, from heaven above, she fell on toward the ground. Her wings were tattered and broken so I gave my shoulder to bear. She was beautiful even with the scars though looked fragile enough to tear. I found t...

    Strings of ghosts flit 'bout my head like those lazy charcoal sparrows chirping their stories. The days are short so I build a coffin and rest easy knowing it's always on hand....

    Through process of moving on, we had kind of this little relationship thing already started. And he said, “the one thing I regret is that we didn’t hang out.” They have already gone through that. Shut up. When you piss me off, get out the way. Get out the way. If I didn’t care, I woul...

    You're not a liar yet you speak with a forked tongue You're not human yet you bleed all the same You're not a ghost yet you won't stop haunting me You're not an angel yet you pocketed the halo You're not a demon yet you still wear the Mark You're not a lover y...

    My body is a planet Plain and simple, that's a fact My feet form the mountains While toes make up the peaks My hands produce the plants And fingers grow their roots My chest becomes a rolling plane Covered with streams of sweat While the stomach is a barren desert That gently rumbles a...

    Alone in this world And hurt by love There is a friend That I have been thinking of My heart goes out to her I feel her suffering and grief I wish I could comfort her And give her some relief She is tormented by a past That just won’t leave Day and night With no reprieve Her spir...

    Would you like me to stop? Kiss you good night As the night starts to grow And you leave yourself For the last time in years To the kid who was told He would never be one of them And tries to commit to a life He knows he never needed Stop yourself Before you begin Pull back from your da...

    This garden…is alive. Sit on a rotting stone, allow the vines and creepers to climb up your body and into your life. Ensnaring you in their leafy hold, recoiling only slightly as they sense your freezing heart. Taking great care not to upset the delicate balance of sunlight. Take root and...

    I've found throughout my life, Over a course of some number of days, That there isalways a time to say something, A hundred, no a thousand, no a million ways. I promised that I wouldn't tell you, The thing that can be said. That promise I will and cannot break, For my soul could ...

    I’m tired… Tired of all the lies told Tired of all the spies around us Tired of all the arrows that come raining down from nowhere Tired of all the misfortune that has befallen you Never have I meant to hurt you like I did I only wished to keep you alive but failed and watched you pass...

    The music pounds away And people gather round Listening for the songs Which they want to be played They flock to the dance floor And gather in hordes of bodies Smashed together Touching, pressing up against one another Dancing turns to liveliness Liveliness turns to craziness Craziness...

    I'd love to brush away your tears, But lately I've been confused, About the way that you're crying, While the others look amused. Just lean into my arms, Where all will be just fine, And everything is beautiful, A place that has no time. I wish to kiss away the sorrows, A...

    Once again I applaud you... Your tricks have made me love... Again the thing I've come to hate... Damn... You've gotten under my skin... And wreaked my world... Why can't you see... The pain you've made me feel... Because it's tearing me apart... Once I had a ...

    For the past 16 years my world has been turned upside down. The sickness of apathy spreads like wildfire. Where's the foundation of our legacy? The Book of Life is slowly fading, lacking the writers needed to keep it full. Be careful, your world could fall on you. Those fears we keep to ourselv...

    It seemed so simple Yet turned out so hard To write my own story. I won't pretend to know What you said about me Because truths only hurt. The song of love we sing Is only a lie That's half yours and half mine. You blinded me With your life That you claimed to be. And w...

    Every rock you've ever thrown, At the windows of my heart, Give way to the integrity, Which is me... Every lie you've ever told, Like an arrow sleek and sharp, Tear a hole, a deep gash, Into my very soul... Every truth instead of faith, Has led you to this day, When the skies...
