false start.

Draw too deep breath.

Linger too long.

Forego solid food.

Count to ten.

the first is [not]

I don’t have a poem for you

you don’t feel volatile

I am sputtering like a flame someone left too close to

            an open window

you are not the frayed wick

I still haven’t figured out what you are

you are like deja vu with pretty eyes

seeing a splintering of a thousand potential futures

they all exist because none of them exist ...

the first is

This one is not for you.

Stay sane.


with no regard,


luke warm

Beautiful strands spun, woven by the deadly

A spider works tirelessly on an intracate weaving of delicate silver threads

Colecting tiny delicate dewdrops

Shining like diamonds littered with droplets in the sun

Hanging, strung in the queerest places

So beautiful, it seems there should be someone different crafting these inginious masterpeices

The Sweetest Drug

I know I say things that make your jaw drop

Then I'll flash you a smile that'll make your heart stop

I'll get under your skin just because I know I can

Because when it comes to being sane, I guess I'm not a fan

I know I drive you crazy and you want to wring my neck

I came off so innocent and now you never know what to expect

We go from screaming at each other to waking up togethe...

I Break Everything I Touch

entry picture

I break everything I touch; At first seemingly simple- But soon too much, For my games are so nimble. My feelings out of reach- always too far to touch. And not made known through speech; I am an observer- I keep my distance; I am not a conformer- And at times lack resistance. I speak my words carefully, I am a reformer- And I shall go about it tastefully, Though always be straig...
