  • The Misunderstood Child

    ,

    I went downstairs one night to find my parents reading my candle-light “The Misunderstood Child — 101 Ways To Understand Your Kid” I felt left out; something wasn’t right. Was it something I said, or something I did? Maybe I am just different… god forbid.

  • The Man At The Fair

    ,

    The Man at the fair stands tall trying to get a passerby to play his game. “Throw a dart pop a balloon win a prize…”, He calls out on his loudspeaker as I am drawn in. Drawn into his world of colorful balloons each waiting for the deadly prick of the dart. I throw many…

  • The Empty Page

    ,

    An empty page Like a mind without ideas. Think of something. Write of something. Take this boring wasteland; Add ideas to let it flourish. Plant words among the lines. Take this flat single-dimensional surface; Add some words; Add some life And watch your page grow.

  • Suicide Of A Classmate

    ,

    Have a suicide plan; Planned out all in my mind. Tell my parents I shall not make it home. Leave me alone It’s too late to help me now. Had enough of life; Time to end it all. 3:00 in the afternoon; the bus ride home my final hour. I take the jagged bottle glass…

    Stamford, The place of wonder, to see and explore anything explore the wilderness, climb the mountains, fish the streams and ponds, or read stories to children of castles, pirates, and kings.

    I know a place where we can go. It’s down by the river; one may listen to the wind blow. Listen to the rushing waters and the wind blowing through a thousand leaves. Leave your troubles behind… come with me to the place of rushing waters, and rustling leaves.

  • River Carry Me Away

    ,

    Oh river, carry me away. Far, far away; Nothing is left for me here. With your cold, rapid waters, carry me quickly away from here. Over the many rocks I shall not notice; the waters chill my skin until I’m numb. Carry me away to a better life. Anywhere is better than here. With your…

  • Raped At 18

    ,

    Raped at 18 years of age. If you let me touch you, I won’t try to start a fight tonight. If you let me feel you, I won’t try to hurt you tonight. If you let me fuck you, I won’t beat you up tonight. Rape me; it will not leave marks but the emotional…

  • Princess Di

    ,

    A beautiful woman. A model Princess of Wales. Riding in her car ambushed by the press. Car is now a cage trapping the perishing goddess inside. Past the golden hour doctors pound on her chest. Suddenly the woman the world loved was a legend.

  • Myself

    ,

    I don’t play like the other kids. I don’t go where the other kids go. I don’t want to be like the other kids. I don’t want to be normal like storybook characters. Taking those pills only makes me one of them; one of the other, “normal kids.” You wanted me to be. Artificial and…
