  • Copy your thoughts
  • Of friendship true
  • Of thing you forgot
  • To say or do
  • Hold each moment
  • In your hand
  • And release it
  • To one who understands



  • I'm growing older
  • Everyday
  • You feel
  • I push you
  • Away
  • But my love
  • Is strong
  • Tucked deep inside
  • Growing still
  • Like me
  • Wanting to hide

Poems About Being a Teenager

Uncertain Crush

  • There is no certainty in your smile
  • That passes through vision
  • like threads of lighting
  • To reach for your hand
  • and find it stone gone
  • Would unravel this uncertain crush
  • Splintering the sky
  • With my empty-fingered hands


  • Silence pounds the walls
  • Mocking the slow
  • Unfounded beat
  • Beneath my skin
  • Loneliness grows
  • Until the emotion melds
  • Into visions
  • Reflected in my very eyes

Technology and Language

  • SED
  • Enough, darling
  • L8R

The Future


  • Within each element of this crystal life
  • Are threads twisting into the cycle
  • Of here and now
  • They weave the uncertain path
  • Unfolding beneath your feet
  • Unraveling into your past
