A sweet spring day when the birds were free to sing,
Warm, free air filled the room,
Yet I was still suffocating under my tears.
Seeing that hospital bed and the IV line
In your skin
Broke me into pieces.
A fragile piece of china
Became hard, cold iron in a matter of seconds.

Loud school bells
Now that algebra’s over time to go kick some balls around
On a pitch of patchy green
As if the green I see doesn't already make me want to be a teen
Oh now it’s 3:30
Time to go help some vegetables eat their mush
While I give their ill-breed ar...

The small girl laughed.
The noise bubbling out of her mouth- a jubilant stream of sound.
No more than four or five years old
She traced the life lines on her father's palm.
Folding and unfolding the fingers
Of his hand around her own.
They were sitting next to me on the airp...

I can only hope
That one day I will meet you:
My perfect prince,
My beautiful princess,
My other half.
That one day we will come together
Like two puzzle pieces,
And complete the painted picture
The universe has created.
That you are out there some...

When you boarded,
Flowers trailed behind you.
The sun rose east to west,
Though your captain strange.
I will wash the laundry- you never did anyway-
Rapid spin will come before tumble dry.
I will still sleep in the nest of warm cloth.
My tears will dry and evaporate.

Home is her and him
Home is where there is always a voice, always someone laughing, listening
Home is where we smell sweet sleepy magnolias and the red, rosey, ripe tomatoes
Home is new
Home is the place where they slept and they woke up
Home is where they walked and ran, j...

I guess you could say, we are two sides of the same stone.
He and I
we are like a stone buried in a river.
I am the lower half, buried in the sediment.
Sometimes, I peek out a watch the water rushing by.
Watch my life rushing by.
I grip the muddy river floor so we...

Could you define bliss to me?
It's when the heart's beat is of ecstasy.
Conveyed through goofy, eccentric laughs,
It's little kids crafts showed in photographs.
Dulcet strums, a sweet bliss of mine,
Takes me towards silver linings of cloud nine,
And blithe words written on c...

I'm sure you've heard the story before /
It starts with midnight walks along the seashore /
Defying Fatigue and abandoning sleep, /
All in exchange for another chance to weep. /
Boys always texting, blowing up her phone /
A hundred friends, but she's still alone. /
To the wo...

I stare at the spark,
Caught in the ordered line of the fuse,
Bookended by disorder
(The struck match and the brilliant fading fireworks).
How beautiful, I think,
But the smoke leaves a bitter taste.
I look on, and my ears
Are assailed with the grinding of teeth
