A girl with
Wildfire on her tongue
Lightning in her fingertips 
Earthquakes in her eyes
A hurricane in her heart 
And tornadoes in her soul
Let her be
Your perfect storm

Log Cabin Windows

Smell the calm
Taste the darkness
Touch the stars 
Bathe in the moonlight 
And feel my love 
Find your center 
And I've found
My home 


You're ugly
    They said
You're unwanted 
    They sneered 
You're unloveable 
    They teased
But somehow 
I'm the only one
That can hear them

I can swallow the lows
I can enjoy the highs
It's the long middles
Those eternal in betweens
That threaten
To crush me

The pinprick 
The stab in the heart 
I can feel the heat spread 
The warm and sticky blood
And soon my whole chest 
Is on fire and soaked 
I chase the rain
The only way to wash myself 
Clean of you
But the clouds move 
Faster than I can

Hummingbird wings
Darting from side to side
There to kiss away the tears
Before they have the chance
To fall

Run for your life 
Little Rabbit
Can't stop
Won't stop 
To look back
There's fire and smoke
And nothing left 
Don't let him catch you
Don't let him see you cry
Don't let him know
How afraid you are
Run away
So he can forget you 
Ever existed
~~~The thoughts that fly
~~~Through my head as I 
~~~Stand frozen 
~~~Unable to move
~~~And weep

Nothing special 
A tiny shell of a thing
Hard to see 
Amongst the polished glass
Trying its best 
To outshine the sun
