The Things He Carried
Custom User Avatar
Jerome was still zipping up every last thing in the bag, making sure nothing was left, and nothing would fall out. What was inside the bag wasn’t of much importance. Being a necklace he got me from a jewelry store in the midst of downtown, a... (more »)

Dream Big
Custom User Avatar
They say life is like a roller coaster. If so, the one I’m on lifts you higher and higher, and just when you start to enjoy the view, it drops you. I lie in the back of my truck with a bottle of pills, a pack of Marlboro, and a bottle of... (more »)

The Ride Home

It’s almost as if he had said the magic words. He had, actually. I wanted him to say it again. You know, I think you’re really pretty. Thank God it’s like eleven o’clock because he’d see my cheeks if it wasn’t, and they’re turning... (more »)
Notes From a Liar
By , greenwich, CT
My hand rested on the doorknob, idle and indecisive. I could see my parents sitting at the kitchen table, an empty chair in between them, waiting for me. Only minutes before I had received their call; they knew I lied, that I pretended to be at a... (more »)
Footsteps

"On three, okay?" I asked, looking back at her. "Okay." She said, smiling widely, showing off her braces decorated with blue and white brackets. “One..” I started counting, ready to catch her on my back and hold her... (more »)
Summer Memories
Custom User Avatar
Vanilla ice cream and bubble gum. Warm summer memories to scare away the cold winter loneliness. The scent of her lavender perfume fills me with a warm sensation that slowly snakes it was down my body from my head to my toes. The sound of her... (more »)

You Win

I looked away as you brushed the loose strands of hair behind my ears, tucking them away. "You're so beautiful..." You whispered as you did so. I shook my head, blushing more than ever. "I'm nothing special." You... (more »)

We ran. Air was coming to me in gasps. I felt like my legs were going to give out. The frigid air seemed to rip around inside me. The nonexistent sweat felt like it was making my skin burn up. I could feel the weight of my legs was getting the... (more »)

Hamartia
Custom User Avatar
Her eyes were really what struck him first. They were the eyes that spoke across a room, grey-rimmed, hazy violet blue, kaleidoscopic irises. Beautiful. Tragic. Lonely. Needy. Antonio’s achilles heel. His fatal flaw, his hamartia, his... (more »)

The Sun
Custom User Avatar
For someone like me, it is quite unbelievable that I fell for someone like you so easily. Sometimes I’m embarrassed of myself for that, but nobody cares about etiquette anymore so I guess I’m shameless. “The sun shines up your *ss and... (more »)
A Hope to Survive
Custom User Avatar
I love her. That thought drives me forward, through the biting rain that seems determined to wash away all trace of hers and mine existence. How can a heart that beats so strongly for her be the same organ that turned her away from me? What cruel... (more »)

P.S. I still love you.
By , Dublin, OH
We were sitting there patiently waiting for someone to break the ice and I could feel my stomach twisting and my cheeks were getting redder by the second as thousands of nervous little butterflies swirled inside of me. I looked into his eyes and... (more »)
Collisions, Rockets, and Gravity
Custom User Avatar
We collided; breath heavy, hands uneasy. The split second before the collision, my heart screamed through my closed lips, warning me of possible danger ahead; enter with caution. I fought back the instinct to run, pressing forward, unsure of... (more »)
Te Amo
Custom User Avatar
The mist swirled around the bodies twisting and moving underneath the strobe lights to the sensual music. A dark figure was walking up to me, her hips swaying to the rhythm; I swiped a tear which had escaped from my heavily made up eyes. Her... (more »)
Spouse to be But in My Head This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Sitting down at a computer, I spot someone who is sitting down with a book to read. The moment I see them, it’s like I see nothing but them. Everything else just… disappears. In the room is this perfect person and myself. The first thing I... (more »)

One Last Look
Custom User Avatar
I take slow, careful sip from my steaming hot cup of low-fat cinnamon cappuccino. My red lip stick stains the place form where I took my sip. I look around the small, cozy French Café, and I see couples, newly in love I suppose. I remember what... (more »)
