Moments During A Wreck

FREE WRITING

As my windshield connects with the pole I wonder how this is what heartbreak is akin to.
 The crinkling of glass is often confused with voicemail tones and forgotten 'I love you's'.
Beams of headlights reflect mistakes long forgotten as you leave like a drive-by.  
 My neck snaps back while the airbag leaves bits of blue and black.
And during it all you watch my demise through passive eyes whilst pining for another's embrace to 
 crack.

Badge

FREE WRITING

A branch snapped behind her, and without a chance of protest she felt herself being flung to the soft dirt.  She sifted the cool soil between her fingers, hanging onto a piece of sanity as her blouse was being ripped thread by thread.  Panic flooded through her as she felt blood leave from her body.  Unimaginable pain electrified her as she prayed with all her might for anyone to find her.  
    “Someone...help me,” she croaked, before everything went...

FREE WRITING

I am from closed doors;
from angry tears and ground shaking voices,

I am from bizarre haircuts and cluttered messes, 
from laughter and long forgotten homework piled in brightly lit corners.

I am from bear hugs, tooth smiles, and forgiveness.
From reaching out and starting anew.

I am from resonant clarinets and singing in the car, 
I am from...

Love Comes To Those Who Beg

FREE WRITING

I woke up this morning with an occupied bed, but no love to give in return.
He isn't you; but sometimes, 
in certain angles,
I can imagine appeasing his wish to forget out past together.
Sharp cheekbones lit by moonlight bring promise of plush lips as his gentle hands attempt to wash away my bruises.
Yet for all his trying it simply reminds me of your uncanny ability to turn tender pale skin into ruins of purple.
His quiet whispers...

Delicate (a slam poem?)

FREE WRITING

Delicate is a frail boy trapped in a barbie pink box of femininity.  
Tossed from judging looks and harsh tongues
A rag doll bouncing between the borders of being accepted and the truth.
Dresses silk to the touch dig rose thorns into his skin, sewn in against his will.
Delicate breaks like brittle glass from closed doors and keels over as if even the wind rejects him.
Pushed from locker to linoleum floors to unwanted bathroom stall encounters.
Each...
