Just as I am poised for flight
I decide
Diving into you is more brave.”

—excerpt from Kamikaze


“Drunk on joy, and
Almost afraid to ask for more
It was terrifying to be happy
To the point of madness”

—excerpt from Sabotage


“No more finger pointing
The business of blame is done
How did it come to this
How does love unravel with no sound?”

—excerpt from Mute


“We’re happy, yet…
The torture of
What could’ve been
Burns an acid hole
In my placid life”

—excerpt from Party Line


“I refuse to end up
Like the million other girls
Lying broken,
puddling at your feet.”

—excerpt from Humpty Dumpty

“We can’t be friends
Until I can look you in the eye
Of your sting”

—excerpt from This Little Sting Called Love


“Since when did we start keeping score?
How do I proceed,
When your love feels like
It’s only on loan?”

—excerpt from Indebted


“You met me first
And if you didn’t spot
my number one potential then,
then when?”

—excerpt from Miss In-Between


“I hate the way you make me feel
That I’m never whatever enough
You have this ideal
And I suffer because I don’t fit”

—excerpt from Moving On


“I kept searching for my other half;
I missed the whole point.
A soulmate
could not plug a hole
I dug out myself.”

—excerpt from Hollow
