I No Longer Shine For YouAt this hour, my eyes are heavy, my body aches for sleep, my head longs for the red pillow on my bed. It is not the same without you here in the limited space my mattress offers. In fact, the space you used to occupy has stretched to feel infinite when my hand feels the need to search it for you. It will slide its way over unwrinkled sheets in seconds that feel endless only to have the tips of its fingers meet the cold and lonely wall. The coolness jolts me into remembering you have a new place, a new bed, a new warmth in which to cling to.I No Longer Shine For You5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I do not apologize for not being your brand of cynical. The biggest, and most foolish, part of me can never allow my heart to give up on the idea of love. I don't romanticize this. Love is just as hard as it easy, as upsetting as it is joyous and much more complex than every other emotion one is capable of feeling. Love is, after all, the root of the infinite emotions surging through us at any given moment.
Perhaps there will be a day whe

Catch Me Before I FallCatch me before I fallCatch Me Before I Fall11 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
But it's too late
For I have already fallen
Hit so hard my body cracked
My heart shattered within
Shutting myself down
Closing up to others
My silence forever kept
Catch me before I fall
But it's too late
My horrors now revealed
You're gone forever
And I'm standing here alone
Lost and foresaken
Catch me before I fall
But it's too late
My visions now hazed
Coldness seeping in
Freezing my internal organs
Lost in time and space
Frozen expressions of sadness
No longer do I exist
Catch me before I fall
But it's too late
For I have already fallen
Hit so hard I died in an instant

An exponential growth pattern is a pattern where it is not a linear relationship
and yet the pattern is keeps increasing.
An exponential growth pattern is when the boy says to the girl,
"i think you're screwing me over." and
the girl replies: "i'm glad you finally noticed."
And then he goes back to loving her because he's waiting for her to hand him
something she doesn't own anymore.
The boy has two hands. There are five fingers on each hand.
That makes ten purple bruises on her arms because he's been
begging for an answer she doesn't know.
And the boy has one heart. And the girl used to have one heart, but
now all she has are six thousand and eight glittery pieces
embedded in her lungs. Oh, but you don't
count the ones that have slid down her spine and
fallen into her stomach.
In conclusion, an exponential growth pattern

i just didn't know you meant it.
'there is nothing better than a brisk day in December,' you told me, our hands beneath wool gloves clasped together.
you took pictures of our intertwined fingers and the corners of our mouths as they touched.
the trees were skeletal and the cardinals that perched sporadically in them gave the illusion that they were bleeding.

I know you're out there living your life and smiling through this pain, but I hope maybe once in awhile I still cross your mind. You still taste as bittersweet as those words we whispered on our endless nights. I should have never left you behind and I hope somehow these words might reach you. We both had our doubts and we knew it was too much. Parting was for the best...right?

the last letter i wrote you was last year.
that year i was still in love with you. it took me 5 months to delete you off facebook. 8 to delete digits. a year to delete every message. but memories, no time could erase.
i loved you like i didn't even know how.
this year, the girl you were seeing hurt you, so you broke her. she had onyx hair and ivory skin. strong grey eyes and a kindred spirit. you two were really happy. but then the cracks started showing and she couldn't fill them. couldn't fill you. you left her corrupted. i saw you in the mall and your eyes were dead. i didn't recognize you until i looked at you 3 times.
a year ago, you were with a long legged girl. she had fair skin and fair hair, with baby blues. she liked to wear short skirts and dream of other people, but you loved her. you loved her hard, with everything you had. she took everything, smiled, and left.
and a long time ago, you gave your heart to a girl that looked a little like myself. and you held her
