I step carefully
and apologize to the birds.
You ask me what I'm afraid of.
I think maybe everything.

Consume me, calamity

I'll lend you my soul,
dear devil.
just hold my heart
as I sink
below the blood soaked soil.

again again again

Pretty screams
cruel and familiar
decadent and
inside my skull
and down
my spine
break my sleep,
my bones,
and my mind.

The earth turns in strange ways.

There is something about a car and being able to get out when you need to. When you feel like 'Oh you have got to be kidding me'. My words, ripped out from under me and painted into her face. I'm surprised that I didn't recognize the me in her-as she sat across from me. It's obvious that they hate her and that's why I liked her. There is something in being lied to. Like when you read the snapple cap and someone tells you it's fake. There is something about loneliness. Like when you scream and scream and realize you're still alone.

nineteen facets

I am a person
and nothing more.
I was hoping you could tell me
what that means.
For now 
I'll just keep walking on inclines
I can't believe 
another year has passed.
Can you tell me
where you went?

no one thinks of you
and the bus won't
stop for you
and it rains everyday.
But sometimes
you realize your song
is on the radio.
And the cashier says
to have a nice day.

Let me get to the good part

Maybe I'll just sleep a little longer
I won't mind.
But somebody's at the window
and there are spiders in the ceiling.
What I'm thinking
is not okay.
I think it's slipping away.
Where did the conversation go
I think I left it with the guy
behind the counter.
But he died sometime ago
and I've been gone for longer.
