Things Understood
"You know, I think light is an allegory," I say to her. We are perched up on my rooftop, smoking stolen cigarettes from my father's top drawer. They sort of have a cottony taste to them, because my father tries to hide the fact that he still... (more »)

I didn't want to like him. He was just so charming. This might sound like every other love story, and it may be, but it may not. If you don't read on, you'll never know. My name is Emily Brown, which I've always been quite happy... (more »)

He is your world. He is the one you would live and die for. You love the color of his skin – different from yours – the perfect balance between light and dark, day and night. You love the way he tells you he loves you. He says he'll marry you... (more »)

Jake pretended like he didn’t care too much. However, I knew he was upset by my news. So upset he actually had to turn away from me so I couldn’t see his tears. I knew he was crying though. I know how he feels, even though he would never admit... (more »)
We Were Meant to Be
I stand here hopelessly, with nothing but confusion in my eyes and a dandelion held tight in between my hands. I stare at you from a distance, thinking, "We were meant to be", although it, as what I'm seeing now, can never happen. I remember... (more »)

The word hung on my tongue, burning my senses. “Dead?” still I couldn’t pass the word, and it came out jumbled. “Mom, what do you mean?” she stroked my shoulder, tears clouding her eyes. She spoke, her tone loud but calm “Ben, Cassie... (more »)

Dear Abigail, I know I haven’t written in a while, but it’s hard out here in ‘Nam. They don’t fight fair. They wait in the bushes like a lion eager and ready to pounce. They do not care for my life like I do not care for theirs. I... (more »)
