She goes out just before the dawn,
The ground still damp with morning dew.
To breath in the calm wet air,
That smells of rain and soft earth.

Nobody writes poems about their German ancestors
sipping tea on balconies overlooking the alps,
catching the wind and storing it in their lungs
for later yodels.

They say that nothing rhymes with orange, well nothing rhymes with monster either,
Thinkin now it’s got a voice and that of a deceiver,
Now we know they’re all the same tell me now you’re a believer,
I leave Baker’s, a week and a half into the new year, Sunday night; after a double at the theater.
I'm on my way down Leavenworth, king-size doobie for a king-size shift, I have purchased a bottle of ...
Who Decided that dandelions were weeds?
Why can't they be flowers? Why can't they be free?
Who Decided that fathers should work?
And mothers should stay home to do the housework?
Who Decided that King...
We're goin' to the zoo, zoo, zoo
How about you, you, you?
You can come too, too, too
We're goin' to the zoo, zoo, zoo.
He hummed a tune, that's forever stuck.
From age 5 to 16 he would sing to me.

When did we stop paying attention to the character of someones heart, and instead place more value on the words they choose…
Why has it come to be that evil prays in pretty words and golden speech…
I walked on eggshells to be your friend.
You are insecure and overly emotional.
You do not embrace my words of wisdom.
You insist I am wrong,
When I know I am right.
I have never been one to tell peop...
We will now return to your regularly scheduled programming.
Turn all devices to mute before entering the theater.
Exit using the designated areas to your right.
We are wired with a set list of rules a...
When you first called me baby, my stomach was punctured by Jacks. Pain and bruises fluttered on my skin
as thumbprint butterflies. When you held me down for the first time, I thought it was just the w...
"Smile!" "Don't look so mad all the time!"
"You're too pretty to be frowning like that."
This is what you say to me
As I walk past a group of you
Fearing for my life
With every quick, calculated step ...
I Am a Female of the New Times
...I am a female of the new times,
Which means I really haven't any clue.
Men may carry over some belongings,
But women will be altogether new.

My soul is salt, and life is water
My friends are watching me dissolve. I am a lamb, and my mental state is leading me to slaughter I am waiting for the bolt to the brain

My heart started to beat again on that rainy night in July. When you saw into my eyes. When you made me wonder why I've been so broken. Why go through so much just for it to end? Losing my best friend...

After you take that last breath,
But then, do you really die
When your soul drip-drops by?
People always claim to believe good things,
And bring others wings...
every time I look
every time I look in that god damn mirror I gag
the person staring back at me isn't the person I need to be

With nothing left to do but look behind
At all the things i haven't done
All the chances i could have won
