    Bleak
    Dark
    Soft
    Hard
    Droplets pelting my face
    As I walk throw the rainy road
    Eyes Open
    Hands up
    Catching moments into pools
    Of Sadness

    Hot
    Cool
    C-c-cushion my heat
    In a vat of ice
    Steaming my freedom
    Freeing me of your toxin
    Poison curable by decision
    Not by retaliation
    Sh-sharing what I know
    F-f-f-unction the way I am
    Hot
    Cool
    Steam […]

    Light in the darkness
    A match snuffed out
    With fingers shaking with rage
    Of horrors not meant for one
    So young, heart half filled with optimism

    The fingers strike out
    Grabbing the shoulder of
    The intruder […]

    I feel like one of a herd. Here we are, dozens of thin, fit heifers covered with foundation, and blush -to make us look as healthy and well groomed as possible- ready for slaughter. Our big blond extensions bob […]

    When I get ready in the morning, I don’t tend to look outside my window before I leave. The blinds block out the light, keeping my room nice and cool, just how I like it. Plus, I’m too lazy to just go to the […]

    She looks at me and smiles. Her eyes glint, and her dimples show. I can see the weary look of stress fade from her face as she laughs and laughs. I, the jokester, laugh with her. My worries and anxieties float […]

    The chalk is in my hands. I feel the grittiness under my fingers as I squeak my way along the chalkboard. A hand appears, then an eye, now a finely pointed shoe. I look down at my chalky hands and smile as I clap […]

    Your face is unlike it. No pattern has formed it. I can see your smile, lopsided and yet more perfect than any mold. The shape of your face is like a bruised orange. Sweet and tangy, and still…perfect.

    It happens again. I go back to you and it’s like I’m stuck in my own entrapment. I’m on a railroad that has no end. It circles around its self in an infinity of doubt. I feel the pattern of the tracks under my […]

    You set me again in this pattern. You give me a word and I write you a sonnet. Well, that’s fair I guess. I can create many things from one word, but why must it be the same one each time? Can it be ‘tiger’ or ‘lily pad’?

    Chin up, look straight ahead. Mind your manners. Do what you are told. You are here only for your body not your mind. You are a woman, a mold made from a pattern built long ago. Don’t be brash. No man will love […]

    I felt his hands trace across my skin. The patterns he made were filled with love and sorrow, and I could only look at him and see that those patterns were made by me. I was the one who filled him with such […]
