2Woman Speaker gets drunk, her friend doesn't, they have sex. She feels guilty, but it's her job to just pretend it never happened, because she's the woman; so she'll starve or hurt herself to be unnattractive, and forgive him. Love this one. Bitter, raw, real.

2Four AM I freaking love this one. I try to express every anxiety and memory and hope and fear in a college student's head at four AM as I should be sleeping, but can't. Expressed using really unusually-combined words/images. Experience captured.

2Back To Bitter This is what it feels like to be in a relationship with someone with auto-immune disorders. It's a cycle of fear and hope, anxiety and celebration, even guilt. She's healthy and everything's great, then she gets sick, and you're back to bitter again.

Heat Lightning Heat lightning in the sky, and also the heat between lovers. A simple metaphor that uses lots of s-based alliteration, toys with style and format, and attempts to capture the heat and passion between two women and compare it to the energy of a storm.

3 SelfFulfilling Prophecy Stop telling me you're too stupid to do this, stop telling me it's too hard, stop telling me I'm going to give up and leave you. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy. You keep telling me it'll happen, and, it will.

1 Savior My best friend. Cross-dresser, sweetheart, bad things happen to him, I take care of him. I guess... this whole time, he didn't want me to. I could save him from homophobia, then, but he's so desperate and broken now, and I can't save him from himself.

Martyr of America This guy plays the hero because his snack food is so expensive, his life, so hard. I listen to people whine about dumb things all day and barely afford to make ends meet and live in a crummy apartment and am hungry some nights. Who's the real martyr here.

1Babygirl This one's my diamond in the rough. Lots of people I'm close to have been sad or hurting lately and I want to cuddle them and take the pain at me. This one's directed at my girlfriend but the feeling's pretty universal I think. It's charming I like it.

3Moonlit Words Not your classic moonlit words love poem a cutesy almost juvenile idea it's not that you look prettier in the moonlight, it's that the moonlight looks prettier with you in it, and should thank you. Only that's too darn dorky to say out loud.

1Conundrum I don't need you, I do care about you, but I know it'd be better for you if I leave, but I'm afraid that would hurt you so I'm just gonna hang around until you leave of your own accord. The poem is much better worded, and not so trite. I'm working on it!

2OpenNote Quiz Ive been away, I forgot I had uploaded all these. This is OLD and its a plea from a party animal for an easier opennote quiz because obviously school is about partying, not studying. I really overheard these statements, too, which is why I hate college.

4 Image Sort of a throwback to my angstridden days. You try to LOOK like a real friend but you never act the part. You're just upholding your image. I, on the other hand, refuse to cut up who I am just so other people, even you, accept me. I love my angry pieces.
