A Merry Masquerade  

They say I survived 

The wicked you left in me. 

Ah, masks are mighty. 

Dumpster Diving

Never quite broken,

But cracked beyond repair.

Secondhand princess.


Sawdust and stitches. 

Who is speaking for this doll?

Stitched mouths stay silent. 

Looking Glass

You avert your eyes

Thinking my gaze will freeze you?

Or my light might heal? 

Heart on the Menu

Marinate slowly,

Then cook for many hours.

The best things take time.



You’ll never be alone,

Yet you’ll always be lonely.

Victim of your game.

Silver Spoon(ie)

My silver bullet. 

I want to climb out of my skin, 

Leave this sick behind. 

As the Book Closes

Atonement comes fast

Let forgiveness come easy 

As the book closes. 

Week Five- Kiss

Have you just wanted, 

The chance to give that one kiss

The kiss that makes it. 

Week Four- The Year of my Heart

Deep like creeks and wood

Is this aching in my heart,

As this book opens.
