Every tear still to be cried,
Scratches and stains
The heart denied.
HeartacheI miss youHeartache4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Even though I've never had you
I almost did; you were so close within reach
Just a couple of foot steps away
While we slept and I dreamed
And you probably never dreamed of me
But we lay only a few feet away
And I could feel you in my heart
As I felt you in my dreams
And in my every thought
During those nights we both couldn't sleep
Except I couldn't stay up and talk to you
Because you don't like to talk to me
It's been a year since I've cried over you
Time and distance hasn't changed anything
It's only proven that I love you
I love you
And that will never change
I'm sorry if I bother you
You won't tell me why, so there's nothing I can do
But go away
So you don't have to see my face
I never pined after you
I only let you be
Because I thought you would come to me
And you should know
That I don't love you because you make me happy
Because you do not make me happy
No one has ever caused me so much pain
As you have
Yeah, you've made me smile, you've made me giggle

It's half a dozen shots; maybe enough
to let me clean out your desk today.
I open the drawer a crack, then wider.
That meddling slut Pandora's been here.
She's stuffed it full of arguments
and stale conversation, leaking trouble,
oozing bad karma.
Balloons come flying out, sputtering,
sucking up to the ceiling, helium-high.
They speak in absurdities and riddles,
mad on myth and inert gas.
But I'm so free, smoking Black Devils,
crumpled pack, under a map of Boston;
empty matchbook, The Frog and Peach;
my number, in your drunken scrawl.
I aim lungfuls of Dutch smoke upward,
toward the balloons, high on noble gas.
They scuttle away, muttering sotto voce;
curses they mean for me to hear.
Pandora babbles on about culture wars,
aestheticized lust and cool, electric sex.
She says the drawer is leaking trouble;
I say my heart is leaking trouble and smoke
and these fucking, trash-talking balloons.

I miss you, please come back. Without you I feel lost, shallow, confused, lonely and empty. Creativity is suffering, it's locked inside and just can't seem to get unstuck. We both want you here. You're my best friend, my enemy, my psychiatrist, my love, my passion, my muse. Everything about me yearns for your company once again. My guitar, my pen, my camera. My heart, my soul, my mind; we are all deprived within your absence.
I've noticed you lingering in my dreams, but when I wake up, you're gone, like a ghost, nothing more than a shadow that dances on my wall and disappears. Memories of you are here still, stuck in crevices of my mind taunting and tormenting me. I wish you'd come back and stay. I don't know why you left, maybe it was just too much, but I swear, things will change. I need you.
You keep me wh

Because I know my lips
Aren't the only ones
You've placed yours on.
Your touch feels infected
Because you enjoyed her skin
More than my own.
Your words sound corrupted
Because you whispered the same line
Over and over in her ear while you
Kissed the skin you chose over mine.

Signs that you've been here.
At this place, at that place.
My room is dark,
But I feel a linger.
In my room you're still here.
You left marks across my body.
Maybe they're red, maybe there blue.
Even fair as my skin.
But as I brush with my hand I feel it caressed.
The pressure you pushed on me.
Why can I still feel it?
You aren't even here,
And I can feel you.
'Cause no matter how far you've gone,
These scars are forever to stay.
To SamhainWhen in deep dark night the shadows are awakening to life,To Samhain6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When in the silver shimmering pale moon light - spiders are spinning the yarn of life,
When the howling wolves are singing to Mother Moon
and when the ditties of the elves and trolls do silently sound ...
When the Banshees are striding through the land ...
and are reaching for the poorest of souls ...
then the time of farewell has come and the blooming strength of life has melt away.
Time now has come for the dark man to approach and ... hush ... silent ...
"Hear'st thou him knocking at the door?"
To Samhain the ghosts are singing,
the melody of the bustle is tenderly fading
To Samhain in the darkest night ...
life will arise anew.
Lost in HerselfDeepLost in Herself4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is what they call her
Like the night sky,
Her stars are scattered all over the place
Bits and pieces of herself
Lost among old memories and broken smiles
Vast expanses of nothingness
Filled with forgotten promises
And buried amidst herself.
Is what they call her
Like running a race,
But lost without a map
Seeking the beginning and end
The finish line lost like her lucidity
But unable to retrace her path
Wandering old toys
And obliterated words
Stuck in a permanent limbo
Is what they call her
Digging deeper and deeper
Trying to find herself
Until there's nothing left to dig up
Except shattered bits of her sanity
And her crumpled life
Recorded on pieces of paper
Creased and worn
Is what they call her

Before the words I want to say have gone.
Muffle my screams and fight my tears,
My cries are too much for your delicate ears.
Please tell my why I am so
To tell you what you need to know,
What I am yearning to say.
Take my thoughts and hide them away,
So they cannot escape, at least not today.
I silence my voice, it can shout in my head,
But the words will never come out,
They'll stay with me until I am dead.
No Longer AnonymousNo longer can I remain anonymous, just another girl checking in for her doctor's appointment. The moment I tell them the visit is to be billed to the state, and present this voucher, which might as well be painted in bright red blood, dripping and leaving a breadcrumb trail for all, with a neon sign that reads "sexual assault," I become that girl.No Longer Anonymous5 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
I see the way their eyes change. I see how they look at me. The hardness of the day, painted in the lines on their face, softens, just a bit. Their eyes, normally cold and focused, now try to melt my heart with their temporary concern.
I sit in the waiting room amongst the anonymous people. There's the elderly couple across from me; the Hispanic family: three kids occupied by the mom while the dad talks loudly on the phone, his bulbous body exceeding the chair he sits on; the blonde woman with her adorable blonde-headed daughter in the white linen dress; and all the other an

and wonder where you've been
the stars, they shine and sprinkle light
I feel it deep within
the stars stare back at me
and I feel your love anew
even though you're not by my side
I feel the kiss you blew
the stars burn a tender fire
I wish you were beside me
so I close my eyes to the twinkling lights
and let my heart look and see
my heart beats softly and quietly
it allows me time to think
your frame comes into view
and beneath me the ground begins to sink
I float up off the ground
my heart lifts me to the sky
I'm surrounded by the stars and moon
and your eyes bring a sweet sigh
next are your lips
which kiss me far to mars
I wake up on the ground again
seeing you in the stars.

'Cause after he broke her heart she's been all full of doubts
She thinks her thighs are too big, she thinks her feet are flat
Her friends tell her otherwise but she's as blind as a bat
She's not eating food anymore, she claims she's gonna loose weight
She just will not be happy until she reaches size eight
She's crying every day now and beating up herself
She's trying way too hard to attempt to please everyone else
she can't see her flaws are perfect
She can't see her beautiful reflection
She can't see she's already accepted
'Cause she's all full of rejection
Her life is slowly slipping and she doesn't even know why
'Cause all she ever does is lie to herself and cry
