The fire burns bright
Engulfing the wood
I'm huddled in a bundle
Shivering from cold

I'm alone in this world
I just lost everything
So I'm brought under care
Of an orphanage

Nobody wants
A broken kid
Who saw everything
Get taken away from him

But one day a couple enters
They're just crazy enough
To want some defective child
Like me

I'm taken to a house
They call me "son"
I have a new life
And a new name

Even though I'm now
Surrounded by people
I still feel alone
I'll never be whole

I throw myself into work
I move and think fast
I'm a smart kid
But I'm still alone

A boy approaches me
He's a little older than me
He asks to be friends
His smile is fake

I accept anyways
He's as broken as me
Maybe together
We could make a whole

This life isn't so bad
Maybe I'll try
Smiling for once
Even as the world burns

One night, my mother
Reveals a secret to me
He's gone the next day
And I isolate myself again

The fire burns bright
Engulfing my mother
I sob gross tears
That burn trails down my face

In that instant
I remember my past
I'm less than a person
I'm less than a human

I shout at my "friends"
I run away in anger
A monster can't
Be near humans

So I escape into nothingness
Live my life there
Maybe one day
I'll find my true family

Until that day
I'll remain a monster
The one who destroyed
Everything close to him

On The Death Of A Cat
I pull a cookbook from its shelf, right next to the ceramic bowls, flip through the batter-stained pages.   His orange and white hairs still cling to my sweatshirt, a touch of blood smeared across the collar.   At last, I find the recipe I was searching for. Peanut butter cookies.  My finger traces down the list of ingredients: two and one fourth cups all-purpose flour, one teaspoon baking soda, two eggs. A rustle comes from the next room over, and I pause—glancing up, past the breakfast bar.   My sister is lying on the den couch, her face to the backrest.   A blanket is s

Ghost
Once upon a time, I lost my heart, stolen by a thief who distracted me in the dark with sweet lies and opened buttons. I drifted, insubstantial, until I found my heart again, abandoned beside a country road. I picked it up and put it in my pocket, took it home, washed it gently in warm water and No More Tears shampoo, and put it back where it belonged. It hurt at first, its pounding loud, working furiously to infuse pale limbs with rushing blood, alive, but the pain passed and I smiled in the afternoon sun. Then you came. And my poor heart, pilfered once more, is lost again. But this time, as

My Life In a Nutshell
My Life In a Nutshell I (That's just another word for me.) I tried to reason with myself today. I lost. Reason won. I didn't give you a fair chance to run before you fell in love with me. By the way, why did you fall in love with me? Or did you trip over the last heart you broke and land in my arms? I saw the truth today. It wasn't pretty. Ditto. Yesterday I had a dream. You lost me. I found me. The world use to look so dim. Oh wait, there's the light switch. Damn, the light just burned out! The future looks so bright. No wait, that's just car headlights. I think I died and went to... Ah crap! Not you again. Weren't you
