the pills don't workA few weeks ago
my doctor called me

with the tendencies of an insomniacthe loneliest part of her day
is going to sleep
knowing when she wakes up
she'll still be
She called me Ma'am. He called me Miss.The bank called today, trying to sell you life insurance. You let them babble because it's their job and you couldn't get a word in edgewise and you're too polite to simply hang up. When the woman on the other line finishes her spiel you tell her you're not interested, but she insists so you listen. Letting her speak for another minute couldn't hurt, right?
She starts telling you how you should be prepared in the case of a sudden death. Car crashes, drowning, equipment malfunction, cancer, disease contracted overseas, covered. You aren't going to buy this insurance but you want to ask if suicide was covered under it anyway.
But you weren't planning on dying. Not today, anyway. Not for a while. You stopped that.
She transfers you to another associate. You tell him he's wasting his time, because you simply aren't interested and don't have the need for this program.
He lists off some statistics. The number of people who die in accidents every year. What the average funeral costs in Canada
it was cold when I woke upI long to trace invisible trails
across your face, like wind
I yearn to feel your heartbeat
cuddled up against your chest
I crave all of your kisses
I ache to give you mine
Wishing upon a falling star
I'll sing you lullabies
Ninety-EightI want you here on my darkest nights
when razor blades can't scare the frights
and scars aren't enough to face my fears
haunting, taunting all of these years
I want you here on my brightest days
when sun shines dim under my rays
and our laughter comes in fits and starts
prancing, dancing never apart
I want you here for everything
The good and bad, the in between
You're HomeThe only place I know I'm safe
Is someplace I may never be
If home is where the heart is
I'm still living overseas
Red PenShe has a red pen, holds it close
Reminded of a boy
She plays with it but not his heart
A heart is not a toy
Sometimes she writes and stops herself
Afraid, for ink runs dry
Superstitious mind, she reasons
Red pens, like love, can die
She saves the pen, saving the ink
Never once she forgets
By losing it she loses him
Her heart is in his debt
You can't manage more than ten push-ups after the hour-long cardio session. You crumple, shamefaced, and reach for the water bottle.
You gulp down the water too fast. It cascades soothingly down your throat. Tsunamis crash into your empty stomach. There's a scintilla of bliss before your mind and body unanimously reject the sudden fullness in your belly.
It's been too long since you last thrust a toothbrush down your gullet. It takes you three tries before your gag reflexes finally submit. You stare into the swirls of saliva and think to yourself, 'Third time's the charm.' You laugh and you don't know why. Tears you weren't aware of shedding spill into the toilet bowl.
You stand up, wipe off your toothbrush and continue on with your work out.
This moment is momentous.
There's no going back now.
Stepseach step we take together
is noted down in the book of universe
each breath you take beside me
is counted and measured
there are only as many kisses to spare
there are only as many touches to share
one day I will abandon you one day you will forget
and our paths will never cross again
I wait patiently for the day
I speak hurtful words just so it comes sooner
but then again why do I even care when the world
is all but a stage to fill for a while
to scream on it and die and fight till the audience
anounces the winner
and you smile and cry and blush and it all complicates
everything contradicts any plan I could have made
so that I am the victor so that nothing but I emerges
from within the ruin
darling you will be the death of me
and I will die craddling you
having the last laugh
that's as hollow as the devil's heart
the little mermaid(s)we were breathing underwater
exhaling and inhaling,
the first time we'd learned how to
this was the underwater ruin
that was balancing our names
on the fringe of its star-studded tongue,
our fingers spread apart
in a million particles of ocean dust--
and her freckles were splattered
across her face like acrylic
this was our beginning.
her hips were bending and flipping
through the breaking waves like she had
and i thought about the pillaging pearls of
water that escaped her mouth when
we piroutted together beneath
the ripples of the ocean's body
(which, was practically aligned with
how much longer would we survive
before we ran out of air?
Just wanted you to knowTo me you are the most amazing thing, like the sun!
You shine so bright and you never dim until you go down.
You are my flower that I will care for.
And yet even though you tell me to go to sleep I can't. Because I love you too much.
When I talk to you I feel as if I've been injected with morphine because I feel so calm.
When I feel as if I've made you angry I feel every bone in my body fracture.
When you tell me you cry I can't help but do the same.
Its coming to Christmas soon.
And your the only Christmas I need.
And you are all I need.
I can't wait to hug you.
I can't wait to kiss you.
But there's more.
You're laugh lifts me up.
Your smile is like being confronted by diamonds.
Your hair is just simply. Fluffy.
Your eyes shine like stars.
And I promise on Christmas Eve I will stay up to talk to you. All night for me but all day for you.
All I want is you to be happy!
Because your happiness means everything to me.
Your the most beautiful thing to me.
Thought I'd just let you kno
Her Face in the MoonHer Face in the Moon
"In the Name of Love"
For jus one moment the clouds moved away
The moon, though gibbous, was bright
Then, I looked up and I saw
A familiar face looking at me
The eyes twinkled, as they do every night
The breeze was her swift messenger
Think of me as you like
Someone close was thinking of me
It will not be long before I return home
To lie down again at her side
chemistrynitrogen is essential for all living
and i'm wondering if you're my
if i can just live off of you.
ChainsYou chained me to the wall,
you had your way with me.
Our bodies were entwined,
And then you let me go,
released the wolf in me.
Left me all hot and bothered,
and ran away from me.
You said you had to go,
and I could not follow.
Now I’m standing all alone,
missing your insanity.
You’ve took this mighty hunter,
reduced to love struck puppy.
denial can be quite romantiche told her, "i like you better with your makeup off,"
as he hooked the hair that fell awkwardly in front of her face
over the red tips of her nearly frostbitten ears
"so there's a moment when you don't like me much at all?"
she said jokingly, her smile lighting up the living room
brighter and warmer than the fireplace that was alight in the corner
he laughed at her joke, and held her closer to his chest
because he knew that these sort of things don't last forever
since even the highest mountains come crashing down eventually
and she's prepared for the fall, she has a checkered history
full of betrayals and lying, whether it is the one done
with the mouth or the one down on soft beds and cramped backseats
so they enjoy the moment, and go through the motions
passionate and intimate, letting their bodies intertwine
and become one, vulnerable for just a brief, fleeting moment
but when the deed is done and they lie on opposite sides of a
cold and enormous bed, will they think about who the
