A Place To BeI was different. Everyone knew I was different. It was apparent both in physical form and mentality. I didn't think the same; I didn't act the same. I wasn't the angel they wanted me to be, because I wasn't an angel at all.
When we were forced into school, the others were taught to fly. I flew as well, but my wings, bearing no feathers to twitch one way or the other, were clumsy and onerous. I tried to do as the others, and follow the instructor, but my disparities made it insufferable. I aggravated those stars who didn't suffer the difficulties I had. The other students didn't tolerate my inadequacy, and I was ostracized for my differences.
I was teased often. Words such as "evil" and "demon" became everyday descriptions of me. I was pale with wide dark eyes. There was no variance between the color of my skin and the gowns they made us wear as a uniform.
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
