  • Love and Hate Relationship (poem)

    I love you

    But I want you to hate me

    For loving you


    I hate me

    And I want you to love me

    For loving you


    I hate you

    For not loving me

    When I love you


    I love me

    For not hating you

    When I love you


    I love you

    Even if you love another

    And don't love me…

  • Charlie and/or Evan?

    Charlie made it clear every single day that I was the center of his universe. Life without Charlie would be like falling into a bottomless pit and never seeing the sun; despair and loneliness.

    Then there was Evan. We'd been best friends before Charlie, b…

  • A Lot to Process

    I read until the words swam before my eyes. I found myself spinning the promise ring I kept on a chain around my neck. Dayne, where are you? I prayed. Please, be safe.

    "Find anything useful?" Harlan leaned around a freestanding shelf, awakening me fr…

  • The Ex

    I wonder.

    I wonder if you think of me as much as I think if you.

    I wonder if you even think of me at all.

    I wonder if I impacted your life the same way you impacted mine.

    I'll never forget you. Will you forget me? Have you already?

    Once you said you …

  • A Stroll At Night

    My hand was cold like a fish. Both were almost numb from the autumn wind blowing as we walked down the sidewalk that night.

    It was the first time we had been alone in... well, ever, come to think of it. Every time we had been together before, we had had …

  • Only Vivid Memories

    I remember that night vividly.

    Do you?

    I remember what you wore: a black t-shirt with a short denim skirt and a matching denim jacket that was covered with buttons of all your favorite bands. All ska and punk.

    I remember how you smelled. It was exactly…

  • My Marcy

    Marcy was dark. Not just dark, but a shade of black that was blacker than any shade of black that you could possibly dream up. She played bass guitar too. Well. Which was part of her charm. Part of the immense and dark charm that she had. She exuded it on…

  • Glenwick Lane

    All roads lead to Glenwick Lane.

    They led there because of her. The only women in Ireland I ever truly loved.

    I never thought she loved me though. At least not as truly.

    I spent wakeful night with my mind on her, comforted only by the Guinness in my gl…

  • This Heart, My Home

    There's no place that can feel like home

    Without someone who's kind to you.

    Most any place, if I'm alone,

    Fills me with heartache ochre-blue.


    The grandest palace, opulent

    With every comfort you could want;

    The cozy cottage; finest tent

    Without your love…

  • Cold Glow of Morning

    I thought I’d get to kiss your face

    And hold your hand when you were sad.

    I thought you’d stay, that you would wish

    My company when times were bad,


    And when you thought of times to come,

    You’d seen me there beside you, dear,

    In peaceful camaraderie. I’m…

  • Class M

    There are no new planets

    Any more than there are new kinds of people


    These planets around Trappist-1

    Have been there, perhaps waiting for someone


    To notice them, to be excited, rewarded in their hopes

    That they would somehow exist


    In the great dark …

  • Rebecca

    I still remember her like it was 9 o'clock this morning. She had this new confidence I had never seen before. She knew who she was and what she wanted and I was just happy to be with her, to watch her grow and do the things she wanted.

    She was close with…

  • The End of the World

    NASA has predicted that in 15 minutes, the sun will have reached the red giant stage. While temps have already forced all humans underground for centuries, in this stage, the Earth will change orbit even more than it has in the last 100 years, and all li…

  • A Wistful Morning

    I looked up from my coffee. Through the steam coming off the cup, I could almost make out her face. What a cruel trick of the mind to place her across the table from me again.

    Had it been days? Months? I couldn't recall.

    There were things left unsaid th…

  • Home

    She was getting used to running and climbing. Climb up. Find the light. Climb down. Run.

    It was like System Management. It was easy. She could do this. What she couldn't do was understand the pain. It was this entirely new sensation and it was overwhel…

  • Flashback (Romeo and Jul-3T)

    A red light shines from way above. We are being taken away from home. From our Father.

    We are going to be taught. Taught to be real. To talk like Father. To walk like Father. That is what he said.

    "You must remember that you are not human. You must…

  • The Climb (Romeo and Juli-3T)

    Juliet stopped running. She had no idea where she was. The GPS navigation system in her head was gone, almost. It was like her head could only store so much information, whereas before she had uploaded everything to the Skyy, the United Corp's cloud servi…

  • Dead Space (for E.J.) (Romeo and Juli-3T)

    “You can’t go out there,” Pockets hissed as he caught up with her by the fire escape: she was remarkebly fast for a girl. “The guard’ll kill you. There’s a reason the lights go out.”

    Juliet’s eyes flitted back and forth within her head as if they were sh…

  • Yes, Let's

    Let’s get messy;

    Let’s run around

    In places we’ve never experienced before;

    Get lost in delirious abandon.

    Let’s get wet;

    Let’s find a lake

    And jump in, shoes and all,

    Let’s share towels and shoes and body heat;

    Let’s dive off cliffs

    Watching the Earth r…

  • When You Love Above Yourself

    He was amazing. I could sit and listen and follow along as his brain churned out the most complex ideas and insightful revelations.

    I pretended not to trace the lines of this body with my eyes, memorizing them so my dreams would be more accurate. I turne…

  • In Shuddering Silence

    Wallowing in loneliness and sadness, I sank in it, deep, up to my chin. Candles burning in effigy surrounded a warm bath of my misery.

    I thought I had gotten past this. I thought that the first time you took a piece of my heart and smashed it that I had …

  • Intersection

    The lights flashed red and I raced forward. Car horns and the screech of tires blared at me, scolding me. Careening towards the woman that stood opposite me on the crosswalk. She registered me with a look of surprise, then she smiled and spread her arms …

  • Summers In The Car

    Summer. It was hot. It was sticky. It was gross. It was also the happiest time of my life. Despite the fact that I was currently melting into the faux leather seats of my father's land yacht of an automobile as it puttered down a forested road in what fel…

  • Forever Young

    I looked at her eyes. It was the first time during the whole day that I actually got to look into them long enough to see the happiness pouring out of her soul. Dolphins could swim in them if only I could figure out a way to shrink them. They were the dee…
