we were the starsWe were like random twinkling lights that fit into a perfect constellation. We’d lie on our backs in the middle of a soft field and stare up at these dreams that seemed so close, all we had to do was reach up and grab them, and hold them tight as we could in our boney little hands, pressed against our ribs, like they might meet our pumping hearts. Hearts that we liked to romanticize, and press our heads against the chest of another and pretend that there was something comforting and different about this squishy muscle of blood and life than any other beating in the others. It was different and comforting, as we shared common words like “love” and then reached up and stole more stars because we were selfish and wanted more dreams.More Like This
We were the twinkling lights of the city, bright and alive and pumping like those hearts. We read books and wrote poems and sang songs about the cities, these places of magic and wonder. Of success and speed, where you could talk fast and thr

a moment in time.
She’s 19 for a little while
19 and back at my doorstep.
19 and back home.
19 and back. 19 and back again.
She is the fever of the heat in August,
The sleepless nights of tossing and turning, of hair-pulling September,
The endless rains of April, a depressing scene of enlightenment.
She is the classic winter winds (rough and nasty) of December.
She is a tornado;
Spinning and spinning and spinning.
‘Til she’s spent out and looks for a place to go.
She is a reminder.
She will come to my doorstep.
And I will try not to answer.
And then only hope she doesn’t come back again.

Vivid StarsThey say basil leavesMore Like This
keep the maggots away.
but you seem to have crawled into my system
They say wishes
are granted by stars.
but there’s something about the way your eyes sparkle,
That has made me forget about falling stars.
And when you smiled
A constellation of which
my lips begged to meet,
I requested if they might burn the basils,
while i danced with the stars
how to become a writerhave parents that separateMore Like This
when you’re in high school;
a father filled with unused anger
and a mother too busy to care.
pretend it doesn’t hurt.
let your friends treat you
everything is your fault.
listen to their problems with a fake smile
all the while crying out because
everything hurts and no one can see.
press a knife to your skin,
but be too cowardly to
draw your own blood.
fall in love with people
who could never notice you,
just. not. good.
chew on the multicolored
strands of your hair.
(you can’t stop running
from who you really are.)

Empty shellBody shutting downMore Like This
no one shall hear my words
one empty shell
a spirit no longer wanted
asleep deep inside
someone will not bring it out
for they all don not care
one life will not matter
someone is born everyday
a person dies everyday
this world has become so cold
the people have become afraid to be who they are
caught up in the moment
that shall not last
for this all shall pass
Held backLet's start a new gameMore Like This
one we all want to play
one to throw away our old life
just to start new
to make us feel better
let's start a game that's fair
to take a chance
the roll of the die
not having to think twice
after all its who you are
find yourself in the end
to find that time don't last
drop what don't matter
living in a lie your whole life
trying to break free from your parents grasp
you gasp for air
to be set free

but keep in mind i'd never cheat on you with her.
there has always been another woman in my head,
but keep in mind that she is nothing like you.
there has always been another woman in my dreams,
but keep in mind that she has never been mine in reality.
there has always been another woman that i love,
but keep in mind that i'm not comparing the two of you.
there has always been another woman,
but keep in mind, that you are mine, and she will never be.
