A Nightlight Could Ruin Me

In the darkness I stare at my reflection; strong, beautiful, confident.

Then someone turns on a porchlight, and I see only weak, broken, lonely.

The Truth You Really Can't Handle.

The truth you can't handle to hear is the truth I can't handle to tell you.

It'd tear us all, bit by bit, down to our cores. And we're broken there.

So let's keep on believing the lies and say we're whole. It's better that way.

There's A Reason Why Fireworks Only Get Days, but Stars get Eternity

Between me and you, we were like fireworks- extravagant, show-stopping and explosive.

But in the end, we were just gunpowder and a quick flame, and nothing to compare with the everlasting stars.

Surprise, or Disbelief?

Will you raise one eyebrow and call it two?

When The Leaves Can't Stay Still

You say you're tired of this restless war.

I ask, what if war is all us restless have?

Easy Street

There's an easy way out.

But is it really all that simple as the brochure states? Is it really all that painless as it promises?

It's a Trick of the Light

An opportunity, a hope, a dream.

A time to say yes, forget the past, focus on the future.

But the future isn't as bright as it seems, and the dreams are nightmares in disguise.

A Broken Vase To A Suncatcher

If everything falls to pieces, at least I've got all I need to make something new and extraordinary out of them.

The Thanks To Who Saved You

Because I fed you when no one else cared to. And you bit me anyways.

Only the Fish to Hear Me Now

My voice is like an echo in an empty cave;
I'm hoping for something to be there to hear, but it's only my words that return to me.

Some Things Are Dressed In Rags

In looking for something exceptional, you overlooked the real paradise only steps away.

Subjective Friendship

As long as the truth is suspended in disbelief, we will be on the same side.

Erased from Time

It's only a little saddening that I am no longer included in "what was."

The Best Acting Comes When You Believe Your Character is Real

We may never have been "real friends," but at least I can take pride in the fact that I was a better fake friend than you ever were.

When It Ends

Sometimes, it ends too quickly.

But other times, it didn't end quickly enough. And it's those times that people don't quite understand.

You're Hot and You're Cold

Loving you is like shivering from cold in a hot shower.

The Life I Could Be...

It's a path I'm too sensible to follow,
But it makes her as happy as a bird on wing.

No Matter What, You Will Be Who You Are

You don't want me to change. But you want me to be happy attached to you.

And for me to do that, I'd have to change my whole being.

This is Why...

Sometimes, your family does what your friends don't dare, or don't care, to do.


With your eyes closed, you never realize just how bright it is where you are.

He Tells Lies Better Than I Can Tell The Truth

The lies are smoother than polished glass, while the truth is fractured in a hundred places.

And The Window Shatters

Sometimes opportunity comes wrapped in a brown paper bag smelling of week-old tuna fish sandwich.

And other times, it comes as a rock, seemingly useless until the weight of it really hits you. And then you let it fly.


The primary-colored blocks were stacked too high.

It only took one piece of popcorn to send the kingdom tumbling to the ground.

Queens are Just Like Us

Every Queen
Has a wish
That is for herself,
instead of her people.
