none

there’s really nothing left here
it’s empty cold and so cliched
i’m running hot-
barely breathing
and your clothes are on the floor
but there’s really nothing more
though anticipation’s killing me
we lay and wait
for what comes next

maid

she makes the bed just like every day. she sweeps the floors, she does the jobs you’d never do. but every day she goes home to her daughter, makes dinner for her and her mother who watches that precious little girl all day. then she goes out again, because she needs money to get by.

strung

strung out from the drugs last night and wound tight from the pain in my head. i tell myself never again, but thats a lie, cuz i’d rather be strung out than strung along.

half

half and half for coffee, but i always think real milk is best. or none at all if it’s that kind of morning. coffee is the energy and happy of those bastard monday mornings when the world looks like shit even when it’s sunny- especially if it’s sunny on some occasions. i refuse to cheapen it with half and half, or a fourth of milk.

tapped out. blank by half. cut out. cut in half? that was sharp, so deep, and unsettling to see

complete

complete and total destruction. everything is gone but that one amazing plant. that one amazing little thing growing from the cracks in the pavement and rubble.

sudden

my heart is probably settled. or at least the thoughts in my mind. it doesn’t really matter what words are given or how i react in a sudden moment of sight. but then again, a blank slate is fresh and a sudden thought is sometimes the best.

driven

i’m driven toward a goal. driven to be better, driven to be whole. but that’s hard to do when all the while i’ve been driving and i’ve crashed head on into disaster.

vase

the vase was sitting on the counter, light filtering through the crystal casting shadows and splotches on the wall. the one lone stem in the vase led up to the bright red carnation that he had given her. the last thing he had given her to be exact. he was her brother, her best friend, and was there to celebrate her birthday. but he had went out to get movies for them and not been back in hours.

element

i’m in my element, the place i belong. that’s not really a surprise i guess- the smell of coffee and fresh bread in the air, the soft music that i can never quite make out, the sounds of people talking softly in the background- i’m in a chair in the corner, reading a book, coffee in hand, and i’m in my element in my favorite coffee shop

leash

i’m on a leash, tied so tightly. and i pull and i pull but all it does is hurt me. i want to be free- to make my own choices, go where the road leads me… and catch that damn squirrel that keeps taunting me! -~-the life and times of a dog.

pleased

pleased as punch is a strange saying. is punch happy? like the red fruit punch kind- i suppose that could be happy because it tastes good, but punch in general is kind of negative… getting punched in the face isn’t all that pleasing i don’t think. that would be the opposite of pleased- more like angry and painful.

lease

she’d been leasing the apartment for a week now. no matter how hard she scrubbed there lingered in the air the faint smell of cigarettes and rotting something. what that something was, she most definitely never wanted to find out. those blood stains by the broken window just wouldn’t come out and what looked like claw marks on the bathroom door were there to stay it seemed. she sat on her worn couch, just looking around at it all. wondering how she had gotten there and what those walls had seen. though that was another thing she most definitely did not want to ever learn.

secure

safe and secure were feelings he was sure he had never felt. or at least not that he could remember. but that wasn’t really a surprise. you wouldn’t ever feel safe or secure in what you knew, who you were, or even where you’d been either if you were him.

scoop

she was new to it. a rookie. and constantly being messed with. but that was all about to change with the scoop she was about to write…

generate

generate electricity- like the song electric feel.

order

order- OCD tendencies, i cannot stand when things are out of order. there’s a pencil in the cup upside down, tip up while the rest are eraser up. what a stupid thing to focus on. but i can’t really help it, and it pisses me off as i sit and stare at it. because i can’t exactly reach out and fix it when it’s not my own, when its on the table 5 feet in front of mine. damn it. yea, this is pissing me off.

everything is out of order, but not completely… it’s not what you would expect i suppose. i’m currently hiding in my basement as a tornado hovers over our heads, well at least we are told it’s near. talk about order- the way when we heard that siren, we didn’t panic, but we all got up quickly, grabbed our favorite and essential things, and went to the basement. it was a strange amount of order among the chaos and panic inside.

chaos

chaos chaos, shouts and screams. panic- sudden and overwhelming panic- and confusion. so much confusion. what’s up, where’s down, are we right… or have we gone left? i can’t remember anymore and i can’t think with these screams. they’re making my ears bleed and my head ache. and even with this chaos, all i can feel is the pain- the jagged, ripping, sharp- pain in my heart. i just watched them all die, and there was nothing i could do. helpless and so lost as i watched it all fall apart.

salute

i salute you, every year, once with others and always on my own. because you’re one of my heros, both of you really. i miss you and wonder and always i love you.

trend

it’s a new trend. and those piss me off. some things are good and it’s great that we are learning new things, but these trends are taken too far. and people are far too materialistic these days. i can never seem to get into those trends- in clothes, electronics, and all the new things. maybe that’s a good thing?

carve

an ink carving is being put on my skin. the pain is superficial. it’s almost what keeps me coming back every time. the needle bites in quick and sharp making… art. making me what i want to be and what i want others to see. it’s not just a carving

spike

the spike is sharp. well that was stating the obvious i suppose, but there it is. a fact. true and simple. it’s rare to get such an honest approach to things. also, Spike. of buffy fame. he is glorious. also sharp with the fangs i suppose.

liar

liar liar twist and turns have got you caught. just like that taunt that kids all know. will every child forever know that rhyme? it’s strange how things like that are shared.

velvet

velvet smooth like the velveteen rabbit. something soft to hold tight to. but the velveteen rabbit was real and alive even though we didn’t know. i can’t really remember the story. it was my mom’s favorite when she was young but never really mine.

beach

i’m at the beach. i feel the breeze and it’s the only thing that helps me breathe. everything here keeps my soul grounded and whole.

the sun is setting- a yellow glow settles over absolutely everything. when you look at the sun across the ocean your face is glowing and i’ve never seen anything so beautiful. and then the rain comes down. its pouring down our faces as we look at each other and smile bigger than i’ve ever smiled. we laugh and dance and soon its over. the rain stops abruptly.

tide

the tide comes in the tide goes out. i’ve only ever been to the beach a few times in my whole life. but i remember the little crabs and all the shells that are left behind as the waves go back out. i wonder if they miss their home when the tide goes down?

bleach

bleach is used for cleaning. when we use it at the humane society on saturdays when i volunteer, it’s all i can smell for hours after. it burns- makes me sick. but i use it any way. i have to make things clean- keep everyone safe. i do this for them.
