Secrets

deep inside
i've got a secret 
i cannot hide
i want to show myself but
i'm afraid of
what
everyone
else
will
think

The Rise and Fall of Us

the bell rings and you
saunter into the classroom 
so effortlessly
that my heart drops
a thousand flights
down,
       down, 
               down, 
into the pit of my stomach and you
g l i d e 
into the seat next to me and 
give me that half smirk that i find
simultaneously 
amusing and 
annoying

halfway through the period you 
whisper
"do you have the homework?"
i nod my head
"you can't have it though"
i whisper back
my playful tone 
l  i  n  g  e  r  i  n  g  on my lips 
he smirks again and
turns back to his notes
shaking his head  

later, 
a note in my locker: 
want to hang sometime?
-CAK


even later, 
i carefully
slip
a note into his locker: 
meet me in the A wing after school
-MES


i anxiously wait

A Silent Road with Many Secrets


The wind whispers
through the bare branches
that creep towards the ember glow of day

The snow glistens
under hues of gold and pink
silently reflecting
an array of gradient color 

The sky casts shadows
upon the serene land below
with the knowledge that
the darkness will fade into beauty
once again

Don't Ask Don't Tell

i stare into his icy blue eyes
full of empty pain
full of suffering and 
hate
and i know what he's going to say

don't ask
i plead

why?

a tear slips silently down my cheek
you know why
my head falls
my face shrouded by a waterfall of brown curls

don't tell anyone
please

why shouldn't i? 

it'd break me
i'd shatter and 
i'd lose you forever

you already did

Within The Desolate Walls

The dank hallways of a long forgotten home
leak secrets
The dirty carpet
oozes a ballad of a past life
The ashy fireplace coughs up lost memories
to be carried off by the whispering wind
now, 
irrelevant

The halls are walked
the secrets gathered
the past uncovered
The carpet is cleaned
the ballad understood and performed to perfection
The fireplace is lit
and the memories float around for everyone to see

Memories of abuse
of suffering 
Memories of a girl who was beaten and enslaved
memories of a boy who was drugged and sold
a woman who stood 
a coward in the shadows
and a man 
who only cared about money and power

A ray of sunshine lit up the dusty hallways that we now walk fifty years later
a ray of sunshine created a sense of beauty 
within the desolate walls

Outsider

Whispers float
rumors flow
classes continue 

People stare
people snicker
words and punches fly
the words hurt more than any physical abuse

They say I stole 
they say I cheated the poor
I stop going to school

"I'm innocent"
I plead to the judge
he shakes his head

The nasty messages I get burn me alive
"Liar"
"Poor"
"How could you?"
"I'll kill you if you show your face again"

No need
I'll do it for you

That way, 
neither of us have to see a judge.

Ice

your breath is hot on my cheek
your stubble tickles my chin
like a whisper
now a whisper in my ear
my conscience
my advisor
yes or no?

the freckles across your chin
dot your skin
like stars in the galaxy
lightening up my horizon

your complexion is stunning
but i find my gaze 
wandering
up
to your icy blue eyes
so mesmerizing...

if one was to say there was anything more beautiful, more regal,
it would be a lie

i stare at your captivating complexion
i stare at your unwavering lips
cast in the shadows of right and wrong
and i know what i have to do

my feet are blocks of ice
but the only ice i notice is that of your eyes
cold
hard
but with the warmth of my kiss, 

meltable

What It's Like To Be A Twin

"I'm a twin. 
Yes, really. 
*insert bored eye roll here*
Sure, it's speical. 
No, twin telepathy is not a thing. 
Have a nice day."

That is my side of the conversation I have with people 
when they first find out I'm a twin. 
The basic,
this-is-how-it-is dialogue. 
It's fine. 

But there's so much more. 

Theres the late night chats with her. 
The gossipping,
the overtired giggles, 
the laugh-out-loud witty statements we crack until three a.m. 

There's the reliability
We're always there for each other
It's almost better than just another friend
because this friend
has been there for me for my entire life. 
She gets me-
maybe a little too well. 

I'm not gonna lie: 
we push each other's buttons. 
And we know how to do it well. 
The fury and pain we can cause each other
is deeper than that caused by any other friend.

Dreams

dreams are a funny thing.
so close,
yet so far. 
your mind creates images
that tease your soul
images that awaken such a passion
that slipping into consciousness 
becomes so much harder

or
dreams are frightening
you're falling into vast pits of midnight
so there, so real
you shiver and shake in your bed
and pray for morning
when you awake

there is no in between
