A soaked shirt collar Turned pink to red delicious Staring into a car door Shaped like a mirror   She took time away from lifting weights To carrying them Looking at a scale left unchanged, But a body that let go   Hours spent smiling into an identical pane of glass And thos...

It’s Cold

It’s cold. Too cold to take out the trash. Too cold to take my dogs out for a walk. Too cold to take my dogs out to visit my best friend down the street. But that’s not the reason why I don’t go. It’s cold outside. Too cold to bike down the street to McDonald’s. Too col...

Have you heard of the little girl Who chased cute boys around the playground Writing love notes Asking if they liked her? This girl who imagined herself a mermaid princess With the heart of a wolf Just to have fun With her friends on the playground Never thinking a second thought About how cute...

It’s a lie to say you’ll love someone forever A promise in disguise Therefore it is often taken much too literally And only ever leads to further heartbreak A greater pain once the love has grown tired It is wrong to say you’ll love someone forever Because it is wrong to lead anothe...

I could fly. Colors spray up from the sea. Not the ocean, not the sun, not the earth, but from the sky. The boat rocked, you see. It trembled on the waves of the atmosphere. I could fly. The boat disappeared. I felt something behind me and turned to look. The colorful sky had donned wings and...
