Envy by Lexi Morgan

Posted: June 12, 2015 by Lexi in LexiM2015

I wish I didn’t envy Her so much,
But I do.

She floats when She walks,
She sings when She talks,
Every heart beats with joy at her Smile.

She is loved by many and hated by none:

She is beauty in the n’th degree.

She outshines even the brightest sun-
She steals all my light from me.

She is a blue jay flying in the summer sun

While I am only a crow.

She sings of fragrant, balmy nights to come
And enjoy those reveries that I will never know.

beauty is deeper then skin 

Beauty is what’s on the inside 

Not on the outside 

beauty is more then hair and

Pretty faces 

Beauty comes from the heart 

Beauty is not love 

You could love a ugly 


Loves not on the outside 

Of the skin 

Love is from your heart 

Under the skin 

Where it matters

There is not enough
Magic in the language of
Humans to express the
Freedom of a mind.

There is no
Liberation comparable to that of
Being one with not only yourself, but with

All life exists as a
Piece of a jigsaw puzzle-
Individuals making a beautiful
Picture, impossibly fitting
Together like the fibers of a fine piece of

What’s wrong with being an edge piece?
What’s wrong with being a middle piece?

Every other piece would mean
Nothing if one was missing: just an
Unintelligible gathering of pieces.

When the puzzle is
Finished, you realize not a single piece is
Jumbled. Every one had a

Like Sunlight in a Dark Place by Lexi Morgan

No place is there on Earth
Where the contrast of Sun and Shadow is greater
Than in the forests.

The purple twilight persists through the day
Like the will to live in a human mind.

Then from the darkness
The blinding light of sun breaks in
Like the memory of you,
Reminding me of a time when I was happy-
A time when the sun didn’t burn.

But here in the endless night of the forest,
It only hurts
And beckons my eyes to close.

So sudden is this onslaught of the past
That even in my running to the shadows
The oppressive light stays with me
As a ghost behind my eyes.

Sadness is not absence-
the forces in my life
are pushing me away
and creating a black hole
where there should be happiness
sadness is not arctic, either
it’s a lonely, forgotten black
the pigment we choose to
decorate our bodies with
whenever another hole is formed
in the center of our hearts

what more is there to say?
sadness is the presence of all that’s wrong
of the things polluting our positivity
weighing us down
anchors in the vast sea

hello, death

Posted: June 12, 2015 by hannahmarie64 in HannahW2015

I wish I didn’t envy death so much, but I can’t help it. He can take someone’s life in the blink of an eye, or he can spy on them because he’s infatuated with their existence. He knows all that’s happened, he can see it whenever he’d like, and he knows all that’s going to happen. He’s been to wars and tragic events, and he always shows up on time for work. Death must feel heavenly because people are terrified by his existence, terrified of the day they’ll come in contact. Not me, though. I welcome you, death, and you must favor me most of all because I look best in a black gown.

You left me stuck in your memory
drowning in the scent of your cologne
with the smell that lingers for hours
creating this instinctive recognition of my past
when someone walks by
with the slightest hint of you
I struggle to form words
and I feel my heart collapse

Sunflower by Lexi Morgan

Posted: June 12, 2015 by Lexi in LexiM2015

I devour
The sun in greedy gulps,

For myself the life-giving warmth.

I hoard
The golden light of day in my petals,

That which all need to survive.

I transform
Before your very eyes:

When once I was only a seed.

I destroy
All other life around me,

Those blind that I am holy.

Selfish beauty,
I take all I am given,

Nothing more than grief.

Life is speeding rapidly
on a sunny day
it’s about enjoying things
but remembering that your body,
your home
is a fragile compartment
for your soul
and one simple mistake
forgetting your seatbelt
and crashing into that sign
you thought you didn’t see
will make you remember
in that split second before agony
that you’d forgotten the seatbelt
it’ll flash suddenly to you
because you’ll remember
those sunny days
you’ll never be able to enjoy
before you could remember
to brace for impact


Beautiful Fear

Posted: June 12, 2015 by gracebannister in 2015, GraceB

My love for you is miraculous,

Like the waves that crash against the glimmering shore.

Now, as I cling to the edge of the world,

As my strength slowly ebbs away,

Your memory comes to me,

– A moonbeam in the consuming dark.

I recall the way you held me:

Warming my heart and comforting my soul.

Giving me strength much needed,

to look my horrors in the eye.

And there, among the darkest of my demons –

I saw my love for you.

For that was my fear.

And as I let go of it,

I saw you.

Only you.

Always you.

Waiting to catch me when I fell.

Parting of Ways

Posted: June 12, 2015 by gracebannister in 2015, GraceB

Goodnight moon.

Goodnight sun.

Blessed night to everyone.

Goodnight stars.

Goodnight sky.

How I loathe saying goodbye.

Goodnight my family.

Goodnight my friend.

This fragile day has reached its end.

I love you all and this is true:

Tomorrow I shall be seeing you.

So cry no tears for now we part.

‘Tis not the end,

but a glorious start.

For a Friend

Posted: June 12, 2015 by gracebannister in 2015, GraceB

scShall I compare thee to a drop of sun?

A shining ray upon our hearts.

Thou ’twas more lovely and more temperate:

More beautiful, were you, than any of us.

But alas, Little Lamb

Your Night hath come too soon.

But now I must say:

Your eternal sunlight shall not fade.

For Death,

Hath not truly taken you.

For so long as we sing.

For so long as live.

Thou shalt not be forgot.

For this love is eternal.


and omnipresent.

And Forever shall it transcend –

Even Death.

hold your head up

Smile for once

Don’t cry don’t cry

Clear your mind

Push it all out

Depression is no good

All thes voices in

my head

All the words telling me

to give up

Then all of the positive


One mint your crying the

Next mint your happy .

A strange man,

came and took her hand.

As i watched,

I could not stand.

I could have objected,

walking down the hall.

But matter of fact, he was quite tall.

My heart never felt so hollow,

for i have lost, All sorrow.

forever goes past death 

Forever is beyond that and so much more 

Death is just a pump in the road 

Death is a terrible thing  

Death is always around the corner

Death is the end of one thing 

And the begging of another things
