Playing With Your HairWhen everybody dreams of pixies I dream of you,Playing With Your Hair3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
The puffiness under your eyes,
Making your smiles always so pretty,
And the sincere love in your eyes that makes me ever so happy.
It could have been your lovely voice,
Or the very act of whispering that took my heart.
Whispers of everything I ever wanted there to be,
Betraying everything I needed you to see.
And no one should let true love sift through their fingers like dreams,
Because it's just too preciously rare these days,
Unlike all the infatuations in the world,
And the unending love I have for you.

to see me hiding in the closet,
curled with the cold linens because
they are mine and

i will work to forgive you for
you sink into my chest,
the rabid beast behind boned bars -
help me dig this earthen hole,
a revelation of mud and soul.

an unnaturally straight line for every pillar
of the colloseum you've torn asunder,

HairFather razed his head, left home this morning;Hair3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
didn't say something when they took him away,
but now he's a hero, the kind marching bands sing
in funeral times, for men left in the clay.
Mother razed her head for pride and
honor, it's graved onto the tombstone;
only bodies that embraced the sand
crawl toward this tormented silent throne.
Razed my head, forgot how, why;
figuring what it means, or meant,
a bald person before he dies.

It was me in your arms
My lips on yours
There was only us
And the clouds
And the stars
It was the world and us
It was us against the world
But in your arms I could take it
Anything the world dished out
And with your kisses I was strong again
In my dreams it was me in your arms
My lips on yours
But in reality
It's always been her

The way I blush when I think of you,
The way I smile when I remember your words-
The way I almost wanna pass out when someone mentions you-
The way I wanna go to bed early,
Just so I can dream of you-
The way I wanna hold your hand,
The way I write your name on my schoolpapers-
The way I wish I shared every class with you,
The way my heart beats faster,
And the way I feel when I imagine you with me-
I'm just like every other girl,
Who's ever wanted to be held by someone else-
And I'm just like every story,
Hoping for a love-filled ending-
Because I'm human too,
And I somehow still feel-
After all I've been through,

"Aiyaaa, why do you want to know so badly?"
"Because I want to know if America was just being a jerk when he said it!"

"Well umm y'know about America said it made you look even more like a woman..."
" But if you show me, I bet he is all wrong!"

You were walking home from school with your best friend Matthew Williams. You'd had a crush on him since 7th grade, and you both were in grade 11 now. You kept it secret because you figured he'd never like you.
It was a windy day, and Matthew kept having to reach up and brush some stray hair out of his eyes. His curl was flying in the wind wildly, and you giggled watching him struggle with it.
"Hey! Quit laughing at me because I don't have my hair all pinned down like you do, (first name)." Matthew joked.

Maybe if I tried a little harder
Or was a little bit smarter
Maybe if I wasn't such a bore
Maybe then she'd like me more
Am I even exciting enough?
Does she like a guy who's tough?
Maybe if my breath didn't smell
She'd like me more I can tell
Does she even like me at all?
Maybe she's more on the ball
Maybe I'm just a fool strung out
Maybe I need less self-doubt
Before she starts to prefer
Another guy next to her
Maybe I'm her only one
Burning brightly as her sun
Maybe I should walk away
And leave her to another's prey
Falling into the hands of a fiend
Maybe I should intervene
Maybe if I applied who I am
HairWhy should it matter,Hair2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If my hair is short or long,
What about long hair,
Makes me not a boy?
Why does it matter,
That I have long hair,
That I wear it in braids,
That I'm letting it grow?
Why does my hair,
Which is the longest it's ever been,
Have to be a feminine thing?
