" No one can told you back besides yourself " MaKayla Claymore class of 2013


The classroom door opens
I jump and look ……
Could that be him?

A classroom door slams shut
I flinch and look ……
I wonder if that’s him.

I hear footsteps fall down the
School hallways
I catch my breath…….
Could that be him?

Someone standing in the street at night
Looking at me through the window
I close all the blinds, lock all the doors
There’s a knock at my front door
Could that be him?

The house pops, snaps, and cracks
I jump…. my heart skips a beat
These are ordinary sounds that
I’ve heard all my life
But I still jump, still flinch




He even invades my dreams too.
In the dream my teachers, my friends,
My family all turn into him. It’s like he’s
turned everybody against me.
He’s always there

I just want everything to stop
The bad dreams
The paranoia
The jumping and flinching
Putting the distance between myself and others.
I just want to be afraid no more
Because then he will win, and for once I want to win.
No matter how: mad or sad I get about all of this. It’s not going to change anything. It won’t change the fact that it still happened.
Yeah it’s still going to be there, yeah it still happened but I don’t want it to control the rest of my life.
I don’t want to be afraid no more

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.

spazz much? lol, jk. this is great. i always get those love jitters for a guy i fall hard for. i always feel stupid when i make it obvious, though. i always tell myself not to be afraid, but it's hard to put your feeling out there. i know..

“Well if you were perfect then you would be like a god, unattainable. I like to think that you are almost perfect, that one lucky girl can be the one to ‘attain’ you. I mean if you were perfect, or god like, there would be no way any girl would have a chance with you.”

I really enjoyed reading this piece. It was really well written.
