Our society praises uniqueness
While those of us who possess a difference from the norm
Feel extremely alone

My Mother’s Advice

I stare at myself in the mirror
Loathing my own flesh
Then I remember what my mother said
To tell myself that I love myself
So I say it until tears run down my face
My eyes blood shot red
My mouth dry from a repetition of words
For once I believe it
For once my eating disorder is silenced
For once I take my mother’s advice and choose to love myself


I am a prisoner to my own mind
Help me rid these somber thoughts
So that I may be set free eternally

The Worst Crime

To allow a past lover to affect your current relationship is a crime itself. Do not let past circumstances dictate your future with another.


You are a lover
I am a runner
We both know how this story ends

Pleasant Surprise

What a pleasant surprise
I did not see you coming
I was in my own storm
Heading south with my own thunder and rain
When you startled me like a bolt of lightning from the north
Striking me and taking me on highs I have never known
An electric magnetic pull
A melting warming sensation
My ice cold heart now holding flames of fire
A hope that has now turned into desire
You have some sort of light that knows my dark soul
Each time I try to push you away
You come for me
Promising you will never let go
All I can think about when I look back
Is what a pleasant surprise it has been
For I did not see you coming
And now I know why


Is it wrong that I am still wanting you after everything you have put me through?

Always Hoping

I know you are not coming back
Yet here I am
Still having hope

Live On

It is not fair you know
How I let you live on
In my poetry


I feel safest next to you
Your arms wrapped tightly around me
You see, I have never had that in my life


People ask me why I write poetry, as if the answer is an untold secret I have been hiding for years
It is quite simple
I write better than I speak
Poetry is feelings you can not say out loud

Tell Me

How do you learn to love someone when all you have ever known in life, is to leave before you get left?
