I’m Okay With This

Got a knack for poetry Crafting heartfelt lines Borne of an outsider Watching the world go by Never done what people said, got into trouble World’s not kind to my kind, be in my bubble Silently preying on those with open hearts Check my blogs, see a lot of orange dots I didn’t make a […]

Without Words, Who Am I

I’m falling into wordless whispers Rap and pop filled nights Paint a picture behind these bridges Behind the words of these writes I’m angered, I’m restless In the pursuit of the passion For these words there is no detour This endless highway I will forever traverse In these words, they can’t get to me Stand […]

Taking Back My Life

White light Switch the day to night Black as whips Cross my skin I fight As breath is faint and light Cross my body go chains of steel I fail As hunger burns heavy and tight The American Dream is frail As the tears that take vision from my eyes From my family, from my […]

Therapy Session One

Sitting in the middle of the room Come on in, close the door behind you We’re starting soon Take off your makeup Throw away yesterday’s eyelashes Let me see your bare lips Bitten, bloody, and bruised Take off your gloves The marks of chains aren’t mine to choose Stand up for me, and expose your […]

Between Bleeding and Breathing

Headfirst Slide Into Quarryville On A Dare

Cast a spell over a city Sudden fondness develops an entity That warms every part of me Boy meets girl, I’m reluctant to speak Girl speaks first, and I hide what she can see Broken before, I can’t open the door Though there’s more to her, so much to know There’s more to her than […]

Will You Come With?

Where the sand touches the sea Where the breeze runs free Where there’s not a cloud in the sky And waves lap a calming lullaby Where you collect shells and sort them And sip drinks with pineapple garnish Where little children go off to swim And the smoke of man does little to tarnish Where […]

Women Wear 30 Percent Of Their Closet

I am a dreamer And not always for the best Or the realest Sometimes it’s just an empty chest I read books, magazines, playbooks But I’m blind to your games But I’m searching, anxious to find Familiarity, I have a nose for sameness I don’t know a lot of girls But that’s mostly my fault […]

Ink Marks The Pain I Crave

Bloodshot eyes Tremble under the weight of light Stuck to bed for two days Three nights Swollen lips, burning head I’ve gone astray Some way, somehow Waging war against the body of mine Time after time we devour the lies The graveyards mark our disdain For truth Stars twinkling in the infinity on high Lead […]
