Back to Me
by Callie Hayes

It's crazy how
sadness is painful.
As I'm feeling it now,
It's more than just my soul.

Did I do this to myself?
Are you the cause?
Could it be something else?
Or nothing at all?

Ode to "Aquaphor"
by Callie Hayes

Flashback
to when we were nine
His guts
really hated mine

I was new
He didn't even know me
I didn't know
why he felt so strongly

Unresolved
by Callie Hayes

Scared of death, scared of life.
Will I ever know peace?

We are fragile things,
and yet, so powerful.

Harm and pain,
caused and received.
With what regard do we do this?

Fifteen Minute Moodswings
by Callie Hayes

Change happens so fast
After all, it's only been a month
You're no longer the same girl
You're not the girl I loved

I can't bear to say your name
It's too hard to even speak
In so many different ways
you've made me feel so weak

Angry...But Not
by Callie Hayes

I'm crumpling inside
but there's no reason for me to be.

I need YOU to be mad at me
so I'm no longer stuck.

I've pinned myself to a wall.
A wall of guilt.
A wall of pain and hurt.
A wall of self-hatred.

Tracing Crumbs
by Aspen M

Electric

Bolts across spine, down arms

Shocks wrists

Tingles palms

Tickles upon my neck, shivers my thighs

Between the lines.
by pluto boyd

I am bewitched,
Fully fleshed in this space between us, my hands that yearn to reach for you hold on to the edges of my sweater instead.
We sit with our lungs, hearts, and souls spread open in the dim of the night.
fresh like spring and sensitive to the world outside the window,
Yet the only thing that crowds us is a funny warmth.

The kind that spreads to your toes and fingers
Cradles you in the early morning when the dew is settled on the grass
When the line between friends or more is blurred and yet it's too late or early to distinguish.
And our words are heavy yet smooth like tea running down a sore throat.
