A New DayIt took some long hours of consideration for me to finally realize the predicament that I had gotten myself into, complacently, and with a complete awareness of the consequences that I would expect from letting a person like Johnny Caulder drag my life onto such a madly different route. It felt like I was drowning under his influence.
Our relationship wasn't always like that though; at first, Johnny had hated me as much as everyone else. We sat next to each other in math class, much to my dismay, but because I grew up with a moral of courtesy and understanding, I had to make things more tolerable for both of us by trying to get acquainted.
"Hello," I started off casually. "My name is Charles Nettle. It's nice to meet you." I was neutral, but sincere. I got ready for a handshake and gave him a small smile to seal the deal, but I got no response from him at all.

You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
