  • Existential

    Within a world Lips curled Tight to the tongue Exhaling a lung Of swirled words— They come unclung From this conscience I’m among.

  • I Like-Like The Mic

    Do you know what it’s like to like-like? Like, not merely liked, But to sincerely be psyched Right up to the cusp of love Where one simple shove Could dimple cheeks of Weightless floating like the clouds above? Well that’s how my heart swel...

  • Lost Inspiration

    I could write something beautiful here. Something profound, something worth while. I could write something that comes from my heart. Something that’s poetic and pure. Something that might actually make you feel, make you think. I don’t...

  • Enormous Word List

    Toothpaste, Twist,— What a waste Of a word list Eldest, Mist,— Tongue ties the best Speech contortionist But the greatest word list Will enforce a lisp If you persist But I insist You quit Its bits Are bigger Than bricks It sits about to f...

  • Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

    I walked out onto the stage with no introduction, dressed in jeans, a white tee-shirt and a light black sweater. I turned on the pre-set wireless microphone in my pocket before, in a single fluid motion, turning to face a roomfull of suited, necktied a...

  • A Poem About The Craft

    A tasteless word Twists like a vapor The pen and paper escapist heard Blurred in the mist that he conjured Assured like, “My poetry isn’t that absurd!”

  • Voice

    “He’s lying…” said a wispy voice between us. She just looked at me in shock, which quickly changed to disappointment. I couldn’t say anything, so I just sit there, her hands in mine, with that same half-truth-smile on my f...

  • --Ike Rain

    Once upon a time, before microwaves, but after cars, there lived a boy. The boy loved nothing more than sitting on the fire escape to his New York apartment. His best friend was a girl whom he never saw, unless she was on her fire escape across the str...

  • Words.

    I need you weak. I need you vulnerable. If I could make you fall in love with only my words I’d write forever. Let each word drip from your lips. If my words have no effect and do not bring even a small flutter to your stomach, I’ll keep you only i...

  • Four Hours (Mature)

    It had been only four hours. Four hours since I had lay beside her in bed, tracing my fingertip along the curve of her collarbone. Four hours since she sighed deeply and closed her eyes. Four hours since I brushed the hair out of her pale face so I cou...

  • The Flip of a Switch

    Steven frowned and stepped backwards. He swore he had turned off this part of the facility. He slid his card through the reader and pushed the heavy doors apart. Inside the lab, the rows of computers sat silently while static flickered across their scr...

  • Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch

    “First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting tha...

    There were a thousand words and they added up to nothing. They sat like the sermon in Eleanor Rigby, waiting for another living soul to care. “This is the reason why we shouldn’t pour our hearts out to a computer screen. It has no life, onl...

  • Sheath.

    I loathe being around you I dare not look in your eyes The words I speak are daggers They cut through all your lies. Your words are sheathed in kindness But your eyes, they do protest Your heart, it cows no bitterness But mine knows loneliness. I hate ...

  • The Feeling.

    She can’t describe the feeling. There are no words. no synonyms or acronyms to explain it. It’s just…hurt. Hurt to the core of her being. Sometimes it hurts so bad she can’t breathe; she can’t focus or think about anything...

  • Interregnum

    I became a king when I was twenty-seven. I’d just acquired a castle (admittedly the bankers actually owned it; the treasury was to pay a monthly tribute for some time, after which I would become the full owner) and I wanted to mark the occasion f...

  • The Best Part About Words

    The best part about words is that they allow people to be as vague or as clear as they choose to be. A “dog” could range from a Chihuahua that fits in Paris Hilton’s purse to a German shepherd that’s chasing me to the drug dogs that I would som...
