    The trees welcome me
    to seek shelter beneath their
    inviting branches.

    Husk of a Hollow Girl

    I pretend I'm all here.
    Present and able to answer all the right questions.

    But it's just my weary auto-pilot
    going through the motions,
    while i stare numbly
    dumbly
    at all that won't stop crumbling
    and tumbling
    so cruelly all around me.

    And I am frozen and horrified
    by my inability
    to stop it.

    Slumber

    "This is how I was the most content. Him, sleeping soundly beside me, the world dark but brilliantly alive. The trees majestic and kind, the hum and roar of the freeway nearby. The vices plentiful and within my grasp. My thoughts not yet horrified by a Life in the past.

    Him, beautiful and haunted, beside me, sleeping fast."

    Promised Land

    Maybe I should believe
    in a Promised Land
    with benchmarks to guide me,
    let me know I'm on the right path...

    Instead, I sit here like a liar
    whose throat is on fire
    Words tumble out
    but does it really ever
    make a difference,
    the things I say?

    I wish I could be the girl
    to make you want
    a Promised Land

    but I'm so full
    of bitter contradictions
    not even I know
    where I stand

    If only Someone had promised us
    a land
    then you would dream
    in love and color
    and together we'd know we'd meet
    at the time we stopped
    on a second hand...

    Promises
    of what we almost had...

    Lab Rat

    She begins
    to shake
    again
    the Rage
    overcomes her Mind's
    illogical rationales

    and the Fury
    of a thousand infinities
    of injustices
    descends spasmodically
    throughout her body
    until her throat is
    Consumed
    with Pain
    that does not inspire growth
    but metastasizes like a cancer
    Engulfing her Soul
    with all of Life's sorrows.

    Don't say "Neverwas"

    Wait for me in your
    dark dreams

    I will be the
    color
    you never
    expected

    to

    See.
