Roads Dead Men Walk

Do you know what it's like to see the face of your personal god--- The most ethereal, majestic face, The one you look at and know you would die or kill for--- And never be able to touch it? To know how those cheeks feel grazing your fingertips? To experience the softness of those lips... Continue Reading →

Duplicity

You showed up on my virtual doorstep again, Looked through the windows and knocked on the door once or twice, And even though it bothers me, I let you do it anyway 'Cause I guess I miss you a little bit. I don't know how the mere thought of you makes me sick, But I... Continue Reading →

Of Tears and Smiles

I don't always love you, But when I do, it's the worst thing in the world. You are like a masochist's dream, Punishing me for caring. But don't blame yourself; it's not your fault. You cannot help existing, Being you, Charming me with your every move, Making me swoon from every compliment, Even though I... Continue Reading →

Past Presents

I can't help but think about the past sometimes. I know it's not healthy, but I've never been perfect anyway. If I could erase all the progress I've made, Just to go back and do things differently, You know that I would; But I guess that's easy for someone like me to say. I still... Continue Reading →

I love you! I love you! I love you! And I’m sorry I didn't tell you then, But I was so angry, so lost in my own head. They say pride is a weakness, But it has been the absolute death of me. In every game we played, we ended in a stalemate Because we... Continue Reading →

Medisin

Author's Note: this piece is not an attack on or criticism of prescription drug usage when it is necessary for the patient's treatment. This is merely an account of my personal experiences with mental health professionals who have rushed to immediately diagnose and prescribe me medication rather than engage in actual therapy sessions to dissect...

Realm of Illusion

You are a nightmare scenario, Except you haunt me when I'm awake, Lingering in the periphery of my consciousness, A horizon I can never seem to reach. You are an evening stuck in a twilight hour, A sun on the cusp of setting Without ever giving way to night. If this sounds maddening, Perhaps I... Continue Reading →

Anchor Away

Author's note: the correct spelling of the phrase is "anchor(s) aweigh." This alternate spelling is an intentional pun, not a misspelling. I must admit, it grows weary: Your flamboyant jealousy Laced with self-deprecation. Yes, I hear it in the silence of your speech, Because your body cannot conceal your loathing; But I am not to...
