Sea Turtles

Let's make a heart out of bubbles and watch it wash away with the tide.

Where Crayons Go

You know how our moms, dads, teachers, friends, neighbours, How-to books always said to draw and look outside the box?

Well guess what.

I'm the outside of the box.

And you only see the lines that trap you in.

The Disguises Make Them Look Like Scenery

We're told so often that the bad people don't always look like bad people, that we forget that sometimes they do.

What The World didn't Offer as Degrees and Diplomas

Let's record ghostly voices on an old tape recorder. Let's tap some phones and stake out some houses. Let's weave a lasso of silver threads for some serious unicorn-hunting. Let's test our handle of G-forces on the tire swings. Let's put on a fashion show with all the cameras and clothes we can find. Let's paint like Picasso all over our walls and floors. Let's smile through and through.

Let's be everything we always wanted to be- all the things that weren't on the list of "You Can Be Anything You Want To Be" given to us by our caregivers.

Dear Painful Memories

They say that everyone will hurt you, and that you've just got to figure out who is worth it.

Well, after long and hard consideration, none of you are worth the pain. This is farewell.

Unit 731

Bad ideas, they spread like wildfire.

It's the good ideas that need work to catch flame.

Why The Brain Can't Follow The Heart

The heart wants to jump for joy, even if it's off a cliff.

The brain wants to inch forward and check to see how far the bottom is.

A Farewell Forever

I'm scared of no one remembering to say good bye.

And I'm scared that they'll remember, and it will all be finalized.

The Truth We Never Met

No matter what they all say, someone out there knows the truth.

They just don't know it. Don't understand it.

And probably, they are the ones who never even heard of the incident.

Car Crash

Always looking forward and never looking backward is like always looking left and never looking right; one day, you're going to get seriously hurt.
