• Thoughts race through my head.
    I have so much to say.

    But nothing comes out.
    I am immobile at the worst possible moment.
    I need to speak..
    have to say something..

    But the words
    never
    come.

    Oh, Tennessee. You’ve been good to me.
    And I’ve come to believe, you’re where I wanna be.
    You may not be what everybody needs.

    It’s been ten years now and I’m rooted in your soil,
    I am rooted in your soil.

  • She is positively glowing. Her smile radiates.
    Her heart beams.

    She must be in love..

    It certainly shows.

    “We need to split up.”
    “What? Are you retarded?”
    I wasn’t too keen on walking around this abandoned mineshaft by myself.
    Absolutely not. I was not going to be the first idiot to fall and break my ankle or get […]

    She heard the moans leaking through her apartment wall.
    She thought she’d be annoyed.
    The heavy breathing,
    the surprised gasps, the fulfilled sighs.

    But it just made her
    that
    much
    hotter.

  • Take a step out into the abyss.
    Backspace through reality.

    Fade in. Fade out.
    OUt of consciousness.
    Out out being.

    Project the crystals from a new light.
    And see something..
    beautiful.

  • There’s a loud humming.
    Ignore the daily crackle of conformity.
    Static split-screen.
    All we do is talk.
    Disregard.

  • I’m not sure why more marriages don’t end in simple separation. That delicate balance has very obviously ruptured. Why are you still going at it? Trying is simply making things worse. It’s time to go your separate […]

    “Ugh! You can’t do anything right!”
    My step mother shoves me over.
    “Look at this! It’s still dirty!”
    She looks at me with disdain.
    “Do it right this time.”
    Suddenly, in lieu of the forced numbness I usually […]

  • I never fully understood the dream catcher.
    I mean I understood that they were made to catch all your bad dreams.
    But I never understood why people felt the need to tattoo themselves with it or anything. I mean, […]

  • I stuffed as many boxes into my trunk as I could.
    This was it.
    I was never going to come back.
    Not ever.
    This was my chance.

    To get away,
    To run away,
    From all my nightmares.

    This was it.

  • I was in the dark.
    An abyss.
    My breathing was shallow, like there wasn’t enough air left.
    Where was I?
    The air is thin..
    I can’t breathe..
    I’m falling, falling..

    Yet in the distance, a light.
    It got […]

  • There was something not eerie at all about the fact that this tiny lantern was my only source of light in a total abyss of darkness.

    It was so silent..
    So silent I could hear the incessant ringing in my […]

  • “Quick!”
    “Turn it off!”
    “What? Where is it?!”

    There’s not enough time.

    “I can’t find it!”
    “Hurry!!”

    There’s not enough time.

    “We don’t have long!”
    “I can’t see it!”
    “Wh–”

    There’s never enough time.

  • I was mesmerized
    by the way his hands moved.
    The muscles in his hands
    contracting and constricting
    as they worked through the grease and grime.
    He was manipulating this machine with such ease..
    “Hand me […]

  • I thought I could do it.
    It was my dream..
    To drive around in that emergency truck,
    saving lives.

    But it wasn’t as heroic as all that..

    People died..
    And there was little I could do to stop it..
    It was […]

  • “I defy you stars!”
    Those four words… They send shivers through me.
    The fact that someone could curse something as wonderful and timely as the cosmos…
    The entire cosmos…
    Chills.

    I love that quote.

  • It’s been happening more and more.
    It may just be because I’m hanging out with cooler people,
    people who actually have interesting thoughts in their heads.

    But I just accept the compliments and smile.
    No […]

  • I knew I was pushing it-
    pulling the string that unraveled everything.

    I walked across that thin line
    that separated sanity
    from insanity.

    “Flirting with disaster.”
    That’s how I liked it.

  • I walked through the halls, surveying the daily situation.
    Girls who think they’re women squawk at each other from hundreds of feet away.
    Boys who think they’re men pick on each other.
    I don’t know how this […]
