"Where I am now,
There is no lake.
During the winter,
There's snow, but no Rain.
I miss all the love
I felt from our friendship.
I miss these fun weekends
With Peaches and oatmeal.
Going to a coffee shop.
Going on our walks.
Looking out on pretty waves
As we took those pictures.
The closer I felt to you,
The more I fell in love.
The moment that I moved away,
I was lost and confused.
I could feel your sadness
From half a land away.
The day I couldn't see you,
Your voice had stopped my heart.
When I gave you my heart,
I never took it back.
When I see you one more time,
Will it ignite again?
I want to see the world
In ways that we have not.
The moon, the stars, and the
Sparkle of the lightning bugs.
A ride in a Ferris wheel,
A hot air balloon flight.
A visit to the circus.
A bike ride through our dreams.
I've found more inspiration,
But you'll always be the best.
I'm filled with new ideas
That are better than the rest.
Even if I'm far awa

two what they call "kids" teasing each other
I see you in the hall
and I tease you again and we laugh
and it is colorful, filling the dark hallway with
and together we have a moment,
(or at least I think so)
our breaths suspended and
hearts beating so fast they might...
and then it's gone, our moment
and I walk towards the door and you walk the other way
like two forces repelling
lost until we meet again

soaking up everything, killing my nana's roses,
her wedding gift to my mom and dad.
Don't you care at all that this neighborhood
is going under, sinking beneath the damaged
weight of your impatient Monday tantrums?
It's not fair but it's just the way it is..
I was hoping to see her today, I was hoping
to get away from my usual crowd, drift over
the rugby field and find the girl with the bluebird notebook;
sitting on the bleachers, unaware that her
braids are unraveling as the sky pours Picture Day tears.
Oh isn't it unfair; girl, how you make me
shudder, freeze in a moment of awkward stardom?
Spotlights flashing; all eyes on me, all screams muted;
your approval, girl, is the only one I need.
These days, it's hard to think about brighter things;
Sunday afternoons at Westgate Park, kites
against a colorless sky; your own personal canvas,
Ferris Wheel ride.
When this gutless depression kicks in,
my anxiety is the enemy every time..
Classrooms stink o
