With my battered red sneakers,
As we curled ourselves into the floorboards of your attic.
Letting the dank air suffocate,
the screaming angels
Residing in the back of our lungs.
Aching to be burnt out with surges
Of nicotine fueled suicide.
We we’re the type to store pain in ounces
And place them in jars,
As though they held some kind of worth,
In a world in which pain is the latest trend.
Teenagers are the hormonal disease spread out like
A plague, that everyone grows out of
Or at least can medicate.
We were the lucky ones, who made it out alive,
Or so they say.
A chip off the shoulder
A fish in the sea
We we’re nothing special, just burnt out carcasses
Trying to get by.
We’d spend our days on concrete rooftops,
Humming constellations under our breaths
Hoping for our dilated pupils to focus on the ground ahead
And not the oncoming traffic.
I asked you what meeting me was like
And you replied

With such passivity,
Intercepting every smile,
With a blank stare.
My words are bouncing back to me,
As if you were a wall
It feels like you aren't giving me
Anything at all.
I ask about your day.
I tell you about mine.
Are you even alive?
Please, don't push me away.

We’d amble across deserted swing sets
Sipping bad coffee and reading about dead poets
You with a charcoal smudge in the crease of your lips
I with ink stained fingertips
We’d speak of what it is like to be human
And how devastatingly beautiful self-destruction is
Because you had holes in your arms and I had lines on my hips
And there really wasn't much to say
Other than how the skies looked like smoke and dioxide vomit
Pooling onto our broken pupils

Alaska is hiding behind her eyesA girl caught up in the same gameAlaska is hiding behind her eyes2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where circus tricks and trapeze artists
Are nothing compared to the burning of lungs
Where insomnia stains the people’s smiles
In a pale wash of sea foam angst bottled up and thrown
Into the horizon where the sky meets the earth
In a disjointed seam
She had hurricane rage eyes
And wishbone sleeves pulled tightly across her chest
To suppress her Medusa heart from cracking
The stars open and drinking their flames
Ocean funeral where Chaconne
Is played to sirens and sea urchins
Coiled beneath the oily depths of seascapes
Where her kite string spines push against the thin membrane
Of split grin skies
That spews out dreams onto alleyways
Mixing with stale vomit and baby doll wishes
I Call it LoveEvery moment I spend my time with herI Call it Love3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I know that she's the only girl I prefer
From being beautiful and sweet
To being animated and carefree
She is bliss to my life
She heartens me everyday
And she's always there when I'm down
She takes my bitterness away
She attained my heart quickly
And change my world entirely
She means so dearly to me
She has my heart completely
I really hope I never lose her
Or despair will fall completely on me
Because she's the only one I want
She's the only one I need

So you'd know how I feel for you,
But I guess that subtlety is not your game.
I guess I can't complain though,
Since reading you is difficult.
One moment you act like you're in love,
And the next, you push me away.
I want you to know,
But do you feel the same?
If I knew that answer,
It would change everything.
