A Dream Of Reality This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Rain falls on a cold summer day.
The constant beat sets me off onto a road of
dreams and awful nightmares.

A wizard appears with stardust outlining his gold and silver robe.
A vivid orange star upon a diamond-set tiara sat upon my head.
It caught his attention and I watched his emerald green eyes widen.
He told me in a succulent voice,
"You are the goddess of the great, vast unknown.
You hold the power of fate, destiny and all great love affairs
in your tiny palm. Use your powers wisely
or the one true love of your lifetime will be left heartbroken
the rest of his miserable life."

Little did I know that he was speaking of my sweet Matt.
I had ruined things with him by being too jealous.

I woke up with an awful headache and stumbled to the bathroom to
find some Tylenol.
When I looked in he mirror, after finding the two yellow and red pills;
that's when I notice the blurry vision.

Noticing the stardust in my eyes terrified me.
It was glittering and glowing within my pupils.

It was too late, this was the wizard's way of letting me know!
