It was simple. Get the diamond, and get out. There was fifty grand on the line for this job. Zoe would be able to get out the town her father had left for dead. She was running out of time. The jewel was directly below her. Just do it, she told herself. She jumped.

Oh, it’s like a heatwave;
when the liquid ruptures beneath the spleen
and what’s left is acid-washed hands.

You came to my table,
with a wad of ones,
and some crumpled mystery.
I stopped writing for you, you know?
It’s like a phantom limb that can only sometimes stop itching;
and my voice is now lost in a faceless blur.
I came to your table as sacrifice,
with an apple in my mouth, a pig in my eye.
Blink not once, but twice, when I cry.
So it’s just like dining,
when you are feeling alone.
You have eaten at my table,
on my vacuum heart throne.

You took charge,
like you were built with a whip.
A sharp tongue that could cut you down
with only one quip.
And I see the way
your eyes stretch when you scream.
It is hollow and intoxicating,
without any gleam.
So I hide, tucked,
near the moon, in the starry night.
This is just what happens.
Turn off the light.

So the doors were like mirrors,
when I slammed my fists against their surface.
So little rays came from the sun,
when our irises split, with shrapnel and debris.
It was nothing but conflict,
like raging war within the gut.
You were nothing but the spirit
of the eyes being open while shut.

Just like that, so automatic
with a heartbreak graphic,
and a lame emphatic.
You gave up, so fickle
a tiny machine, you trickle.
Stuck, again, in the pickle

Carrying the sweet sounds of music through the cords and place it upon my very own ears. Fast and loud or slow and sweet, no one else knows what is playing behind the black covers on my ears.

Like daisies you pushed me,
but from six feet above.
I didn’t know what to hold onto,
only facing push and shove.
You didn’t know the how to keep,
and only showed partial love.

In my zone, I saw the light
tessellating down, like crystal aflight.

I had so much, it was all I could do to help her out. I mean, I know it was against what my dad wouldve wanted me to do, and I know I lied. But I just HAD to help her. She wanted this so had, but she couldn’t afford it. So I slowly hid away little amounts of the money my dad gave me periodically until I could pay for her to go, too.

Like a scientific breakthrough,
you come to —
like standing from crouching, and the world is abuzz.
I’d really like to tell you:
when all the sunflowers grew anew,
I saw your heart like a lightning strike connecting earth to sky.
Oh, dreams of you, in the sunset,
I cannot forget.
Like a breakthrough, you come through; and I love how I feel you.

Did you see how the stage was set for us?
Like flowing water, you came from the hands of the moon;
enter: stage right, I arrive at the shore.
You come over me, with an ebb and a flow
the wolf whistles to the sky,
and I reach for you.

Like vines, your thoughts crawl through my vein.
you always knew I was subtle lying when smiling through pain.

Teach me your ways,
in tutorial format.
My heart was removed from me,
and placed on your doormat.
I’d taken the controller,
and been given a key.
Oh, how you mean
the very world to me.

You fell out of an element,
with glares from the sun;
life had seen no former precedent
still i liked how the bullets shot from my gun.

I’m left with empty contracts you’ve given me.
Here, coated in chills, I’m outlined with a memory.
Am I just a trace now, or am I echo upon a whisper that kept you close?
Am I a gilded wing? Or am I the sun that burnt you to a crisp, sir Icarus?
I’m left with empty memories about you.
There are newspapers without headlines,
and how I wish you were here.

An unspeakable bond lies between us,
in your eyes and the links that surround.

I’d show you my ballot,
if you’d show me yours.
It’s at times like these
when my mind insecures.

oh how you shook,
how you rattled.
my core couldn’t handle your way.
and how tables turned,
and all the walls burned,
when I had asked you to stay.

You are the ocean, where I ebb and flow,
and where the rocks crumble.
Shine on, you sea sand. Glisten under the sun.
Our nights have been heavy, but our day’s just begun.

How would I ever repay you?,
Said the strumpet to the sheep.
There would be miles to go before we wake,
and even more to go before we sleep.
The moon is full and vibrant,
while my arms are getting weak.
The stars were warm and weary,
and I kissed you on your cheek.

She’s not a hateful person. Hate and anger, it’s too exhausting for her anymore. She takes the rage she does occasionally feel and she stuffs it down, smothers it like an unwanted child. Fixes her makeup. Assumes a smile. Closes her eyes.

let me swing on your swing set again.
lets run from curfew,
and imagine our problems are bigger than they are.
you loved me like the sun greeting the glistening tide.
I just wanted inside your room, and to know you.
individually, we will never forget one another.

Do you recognize my pieces,
as they scatter through the rug?
I was colors when I met you,
now I’m lucky if I get grey-scaled.
I saw you in shutter frames;
for which, you moved too fast.
I now see life through my facets,
and everyone has left me alone.
I wasn’t a lunatic when I knew you,
but I was whimsical and eccentric, for sure.
I wasn’t more than a sagely wisp,
and you weren’t more than a shadow.

You took my funds like a banker,
with a button under the counter.
I reclaimed what I once had with a vengeance,
with a mask that covered my ears and nose.
Pressing the button, the silence screamed
and, it was like lightning,
everyone fell to the floor.
You took my love like an anchor,
with a sailboat that would never meet shore.

could you be just a bit more specific?
I’m running in circles, on my mind’s track,
trying to make any sense of it.

The waves broke slowly, still slumbering in the dull haze of a winter’s morning. Above her head, the gulls wheeled, vulture-like, cawing. With a hollow sigh, she lifted the silvered trinket in her hand to her eyeline. Not worth stealing.

Lock me in your room,
with arms folded
they scolded us,
and I need you tonight.
Through holes in brain,
you are all I see.
Set me free.

Cartographers wrote me a map to your heart.
Clutching my hand to my chest, I readied the start.
Stars shined down on me, as I sailed the sea;
the waves, each ebb, to you, they take me.
Tumultuously, my compass lost its insight,
and in ravines, dark, my anxiety set flight.
But the journey was defined, and I had decided.
Never knowing how lost I could be, misguided.
But you, you patiently beckon to me now,
through the thick and the thin, yet how.
That even in moments of loss and fear,
you never lose the ability to draw me near.

You were a vase that held it all,
and at the very top, bud of rose.
Tipped over, and even poured out,
no one could decipher the load.
You were a puzzle, and so was I;
and even masters of great intellect
couldn’t solve us. Why try?
Please let the day be gentle,
and let the ravens fly along side.
I just want to help you get your vase clear,
so your flower will not have to hide.
