What I thought I'd givenFor love to flourish, to grow, to become something stronger than anyone could know,Was years of forgiveness,Years of understanding,Patience and kindness with little demanding.I thought all the chancesWere signs from my heart, Symbols of how deep I lovedWith every broken shard.No, that was never right, though... was it? Here, alone, and … Continue reading Years of Forgiveness, or Years of Permission?
I dreamt of things I dared not speak For fear of losing what I’d been, And when I woke, I fell in step to meet the needs of everyone else. Tonight, I’m lost in my own thoughts, memories tied up in knots. I walk until I hear the sea, and wonder if you’ve thought of … Continue reading Can You See the Stars Tonight?
I exist, soulless and still at heart. My actions, though shallow, play their part In a world that's peacefully, calmingly dark;I breathe through a life devoid of our spark. Each moment of thought clear of your shapeIs A moment of ignorance, a chance to escape,A moment of triumph in my withdrawal from fate...A moment to … Continue reading Soulless
We live in a country where presidents are jokes;our leaders are voted leaders with suspiciously little votes.People are executed unarmed in the streets,and rapists are proven guilty, but immediately freed.Children are murdered on the government’s dimewhile criminals are rewarded and the innocent are fined.Where Tanks and swat are used to quiet down a protest,Instead of … Continue reading When is Freedom, Freedom?
Eyes sunken in, she rests her chin on her wrist, wondering what the purpose of life is. Is it finding joy in random toys, in video games and interested boys, praying a smile fills that void?

Tell me you love me, that we’ll always be friends. Know I'd bring you the stars, if we could hold hands. Tell me you love me, that I can dance in your skies. I’ll be the sun to your moon, If you stay in my life... Tell me you love me, and we’ll never lose. … Continue reading Tell Me You Love Me
Won’t you run away with me? We can disappear into the trees, following our hearts, falling on our knees, with laughter, and joy, and love, and need. Everything inside is begging you, please? I know what I want, and I know what I see, And I know that you know that we’re meant to be. so … Continue reading Run Away With Me
As the sun sets, my body sweats; This burned, aching, greedy mess begs in anticipation for when the tide rolls in to fill my soul with nourishment.Lessons and warnings erode from the shore"Drink from the ocean, and thirst even more," Do they know how good the ocean tastes,When you’re aching to drink after for too … Continue reading Dying of Thirst
Trapped here, Between my heart and my gut, Caged by my ribs and a mind too open, I’m Fighting for a freedom I don’t really need. Your eyes plead, “Don’t leave…” But your arms are wrapped around another. “Soul mate,” or side dish? I’ve never known the difference. Not here, anyways. “You complete me.” Is … Continue reading The One with the Aliens
Chalk lines on pavement once meant hopscotch; now, they outline the bodies. Orphaned backpacks of bulletproof fabrics litter the vibrant halls, while the children line up in clouds to get fitted for angel wings. On the wall: "NOTICE: Heaven is running low on size '7T'" A little girl wonders if they come in a pony theme... As a nation, paralyzed … Continue reading Unchanged
