Poem: Paper Plate

Bits of cheese stuck to the surface. That was my heart. I know. Eating my sorrows away slice by slice. Wanting more. Not getting anything. So easy to throw it away in the plastic bag. Out of sight. Not on your mind. Gnats and… Continue Reading “Poem: Paper Plate”

Poem: Space Rocket

Come onboard Hop on Lengthwise Spread yourself out Hold on tight with your fingers You’re going on a ride Engine roars Wheels turn left Gaining speed straightaway Wings take flight Grip on tight with your shoes Still on the outside Should be on the… Continue Reading “Poem: Space Rocket”

Poem: Prison Outbreak

One coming into the bars, many going out of the bars, quickly, run as fast you can, don’t look back, you got places to be, people to see, and things to pick up again. The loud noises are heard, climbing over fences, hopping on… Continue Reading “Poem: Prison Outbreak”

Poem: Trickery

You skip and dance around as if a fool, watch them from far away and snigger. You are not the jester you claim, looking into other’s lives they do not deserve. You adjust harsh punishments, forcing them to wither into little heaps. You arrive… Continue Reading “Poem: Trickery”

Poem: Colorful Dream

Colors swarming above my head. I want to be there with no pressures lingering close by, where I can breathe peacefully. You can too but not as well as others. Bright yellows turn from dark reds. I say so because it’s my dream and… Continue Reading “Poem: Colorful Dream”

Poem: Loose Leaf

Scoop up those leaves, take them to your mom and dad, don’t forget the rake, hang it up on the hook, the one that your brother used, that secret you kept for him. They were blind to what he was, but you knew his… Continue Reading “Poem: Loose Leaf”

Poem: Child Like

Running toward the swings, wanting to fly high, and touch the clouds, sticking my fingers deep into the fluffiness, but only in my mind. Behind the disguise and far enough away, the texture feels different, I’m not sure if my body will follow my… Continue Reading “Poem: Child Like”

Poem: The Move

Strategic maneuvering to get ahead of everyone and not stay in the middle of the pack. Stomachs settle for he must do better and time will eventually be heard. Some he can answer and be not open-ended like strangers reciting problems on the world… Continue Reading “Poem: The Move”

Poem: Like a Tangerine

I think of better days, Not bitter like cheap oranges, But juicy with veins you peel off, Not dry like faded orange skins, But sweet as you bite into each piece. I know of better days, They have been dreamed of, And lived through… Continue Reading “Poem: Like a Tangerine”

Poem: Working Hard

You’re working really hard, aren’t you? Cementing that persona as a badass. Making sure others fear you. The sad thing is this. You are weak for building tension and dishing out criticism. That’s why people whisper behind your back. Say what a bitch you… Continue Reading “Poem: Working Hard”
