looking

eyes advert gaze
to the squirrel
crossing busy road

don’t look
eyes don’t meet
the fuck did they just say

squirrel not dead
made it to the curb
car hits biker

they hear crash
they look cross street
they scream

eyes stay still
dont look at them scream
tabletop feels cold

but the sun shines
down on biker
biker gets up

tears roll down cheek
eyes still on
safe squirrel

frozen
they look back
oh the biker’s okay

wait why are you crying
they say
no sorrow filled voice

don’t look
cant meet their eyes
teeth clench instinct

you fucking
broke up with me

you’re crying cause of that
they sigh

i thought you knew we
weren’t doing good
words punch in gut

double over
grab the tabletop
look up

teeth clenched
eyes not adverted
tears full force

i am in love with you
eyes shift
they look away

they can’t dare see the pain
because they knew
from the beginning

they never loved back

so much for dinner at the park tonight

dentist

“Oh my goodness!” I thought. The dentist is my worst nightmare. Knowing that I’d have to make it through the day of reading, writing, math, and social studies then have to travel to the dreaded dentist was depressing.

lightweight

“You’re such a lightweight!” I laugh towards my friend. We’re in a bar together, and one drink after we got here, he’s already puking his guts out. Personally, I’m an experienced drinker. I could take ten times the amount I’ve already had and still wouldn’t be anywhere near as bad as he is. “Hey, just go to the bathroom.” Another guy calls from the other side of the room.

roast

“Did you get the roast from outside?” I called to my husband as we dashed around the house, a meticulous dance in getting ready for the dinner. The one day a year when we both had to work our hardest to make sure every detail was as perfect as it could be. I had been preparing the inside of the house, and I told him that he needed to keep an eye on the roast outside, but knowing him, it was probably burnt to a crisp already.

espresso

“I’d like an espresso, please,” asked the beautiful girl before me. Her outfit and stance told me that she was just another stereotypical valley girl living here in Southern California, but her tone was something different. Shaking my head to clear it, I rang up her order and headed over the start the blender for another customer. She won’t remember anything about me, but for the rest of the day, I won’t forget her.

harness

How do you harness something that isn’t real? Look,I’ve been around horses my whole life, I can handle them. But this is a whole new category….it’s something that I never would’ve thought existed before today. Before I met her. Harnessing these feelings that I have could take years, if it’s even possible. What if I didn’t try to stop it? What if instead….I fell for her?

educated

I sit at my tattered desk in the back corner, straining my eyes to see the front of the classroom. It’s not fair that all the other kids get nice, clean desks, and new, shiny books. I sigh to myself, trying to write my notes with a disappointingly dull pencil, wondering if it’s all worth it, just to be educated.

affection

It wasn’t affection.
That’s what she kept telling herself.
It wasn’t affection, it wasn’t compassion.
They didn’t actually care about her.
It wasn’t affection.
They didn’t mean their compliments.
It wasn’t affection.
It was pity.

delve

She went for it. Whatever it was, beneath the surface, she did whatever it took to get it. Diving, searching, grabbing, yearning. She wanted it all.

wrought

It wrought destruction. Everywhere it turned, everywhere it sought out life, it left destruction in its wake. It was desperate and violent. It had no thought or cares for the needy. It thought only of itself. Only of survival.

choose

Choices are a very important part of life, unavoidable sometimes, and can pull us either way. good or bad choices are inescapable and inevitable. wise or unwise, everyday we make choices

fresh

Fresh, like autumn leaves and forever. Like walking through a crisp October day and smelling the leaves and knowing that the world is turning. Fresh, like laundry hanging on the line, or the smell of my mother’s lotion. Fresh, like the feeling of clean sheets on a lazy afternoon, and the tingly feeling of new love.

gum

Gum is particularly chewy. It comes in all different flavors like bubble and cherry and lime and i dont know a bunch of flavors. High schoolers ask for it frequently. Usually people lie about that being their last piece when you know deep down that they are just saying that because they want more for themselves. Gum you put it in your mouth. You can step on it and it is really hard to get off your shoe.

branches

Branches are on trees, they are part of banks, and they are part of families. Branches on a tree are brown. A family branch may bring good or bad memories depending on the family. You’ll want your bank to have a lot of branches so that you can bank where you want to..

exquisite

Her hair was as exquisite as an autumn rain.
Beautiful yet light.
She is everything I could’ve imagined
Could have dreamed
I think even she is too real to exist
Only in the most exquisite of nightmares

artistry

peace, happiness, anger, emotions arise as fingers click aggressively on the key board. a tune is carried through the window of the old ivory keys. fingers fly through the air, feet tap the floor.

conviction

there’s not a day that goes by that i think about conviction. honestly i don’t really care about the word so much but i hear it everyday. he was convicted of this and she wasn’t. she was convicted of that and he wasn’t. conviction is subjective
all in the hands of the jury
even if you didn’t do it
they can say you did
sometimes they’re just in a hurry
sometimes they’re just unaware
lawyer’s convincing
poeple dismissing
Life is really unfair

avenue

i walked up the avenue. Obsenely quiet for once. But now that,at last, i had time with my thoughts i found i had nothing to think about. Nothing else but you.

band

A band is a group of people, who, with a great deal of courage and spirit, band together to create music. Not the kind of music that society expects from them, but music from their hearts, souls, and minds. A band is a family; they go through good times and bad and have plenty of memories with one another and know that they have eachother’s backs.

despair

jumping from the bridge is a cry of despair. she must not have considered any other option. to do such a thing one must be in a deep, dark place with no remembrance of the things that are better. nothing is irreversible and if you remember the things that make you happy, despair only slightly discolors those feelings.

forgotten

alone and abandoned without anyone who cars about you
what happens when you’re not interesting
losing a part of you
losing other people
something sad

plans

I hate making plans. They never work out the way you want them to. They’re to easy or elaborate. Just act instead! Planning complicates things needlessly. Just live, just do what you feel like must, or needs to be done in the moment. I don’t need to plan my life out because life isn’t guaranteed.

purpose

the purpose in life is something that needs to be decided by each individual, most people maybe even everyone won;t ever know that their puporse in life is because we all live such small lives that revolve around routine and we dont ever branch out as much as we should in life to discover new purpose

figure

She is silhouetted in the sky, on a thin wire. It’s almost as though she’s flying. I can see that she is not a teenager, as many of these trapeze artists ans such are–that is clearly determined by her figure.

swept

I was swept away by his smile. The way his lips only came up on one side; a crooked crescent as crooked as his own sense of humor. He was wicked in all the best ways.
