    There's Something in the sky Just because the lights turned off when a car went by. There's Someone to share the pain Just because you heard a name in the rain. There's Somewhere to run and stay A place where it might be better, someday. And yet all we're given is her...

    The door creaked open on rusty hinges as I cautiously shuffled into the too-white room, “Bernie? A stale voice answered, “Fred” “God Bernie, I-“ “Okay.” “Okay?” “Yeah.” I frowned, “no, it’s not okay. God, if I’d known… Bernie it was just a silly joke....

    Tick Tock, Tick Tock. The sound follows me around, day and night, like a particularly merciless stalker, never affording any respite to his desperate victim. It is my eternal shadow: Tick Tock, Tick Tock. When I went to eat it, I expected that it would, eventually, run out of steam, because aren’t...

    I remember when I was young, Free With my gold hair Billowing down my back. The sails to my ship, My vessel that travels the world. Beauty opens locked doors And I was the key, a key that was Desperate To be rusty. I remember now, With the weary reminiscence Of a key that’s l...

    Glittering like morning dew Their laughter shines like chiming bells. I sit alone – avoid the blues And wish I wasn’t in a shell. My visits now bring discontent Detached – I walk with eyes downcast They do not care for my torment And so I sit – now an outcast. Remembering the ...

    Curious eyes, a tiny face Stare back from my reflection No blemishes, not a trace Just simple fairy perfection. Behind me, Peter stands with joy All my life, it’s the same boy He holds my heart; to him a toy Yet I’m in pain from his rejection. Then evil comes, and it’s a hag Who st...

    We tumble and jump, we run and fly With Peter leading at the head We lead the life we can’t deny. Though Wendy is always nearby Shouting that it’s time for bed, We tumble and jump, we run and fly. Some like their mothers, their nightly goodbyes But for us, that life is full of dread ...

    Cassandra lend me your eyes So I may see what you have seen And protect my fragile buds From those dry, withering glares. Maybe then I can bring warning to the world. Maybe then people will see. Cassandra lend me your ears So that I may hear what you heard Those hoarse catcalls from jeer...

    I see the tones and shadowed lights The ghostly bright and lively dark All intertwined in one large art Which truly shows the painter’s might. The trees they blur with godly life Every detail thin yet smudged And through this moss the white lights trudge Cutting through with a knife. ...

    They told me it was impossible you know. I mean, they didn’t, but I could see it in their eyes. I don’t blame them really, I don’t. I mean, who’s gonna believe in an already-sick 16-year-old girl diagnosed with breast cancer? I probably wouldn’t. Still, some support would have h...

    On Friday November 13, 2009 I vowed I’d never kiss Mitch Moore again. On Saturday November 14, I kept my vow. As on Sunday, and on Monday, and so on and so forth. It’s been a year since that day now. Since the day he asked me out, walking up to my locker and leaning against it in his oh-...

    Him. It’s more than a word really But less than a thing It’s a thought, Lying somewhere between here and there Between me and us ‘Cause it’s not us, but it’s not just me either It’s him. Him with his sea blue eyes Or at least, I think they’re blue Frothing like the tips o...

    ‘Hello’ I say But he says nothing ‘Good day’ I try again Nothing Maybe another word? But ‘Bonjour’ and ‘Hola’ Are met with blank stares Hollow faces Perhaps he just isn’t in the mood? I’ll try again tomorrow And the next day The one after that… And on and on. Sil...

    An American soldier: the one thing little Jack had always dreamed of, thought about, aspired to be. Growing up, Jack’s fondest memories were of when Papa sat in the big stuffed chair in Aunt Susies dimly-lit living room and told stories. Happy ones, sad ones, Jack didn’t care, they just needed t...

    My eyes, I knew, were wide as saucers, “It’s the rare, almost mythical Tersina Azulada from the Northern Brazil, located in a two mile diameter circle of the Amazon. This rare blue delicacy is marvelous to behold and quite impossible to find. So hard, in fact, that esteemed bird specialist Toby ...

    I’m hopeless Completely helpless, Driven mad by thought and sound Everything, from the slight tinker an ice cube makes To the rasp of metal on wood Goes straight into my head, Like a hammer tap, tap, tapping away Or a bee buzzing in my ear I slap, but there’s nothing there, And I’m...

    The feel of it flows around me, As soft and gentle as a slow-moving stream, Delicate like Chinese silk Through the twirls, laughter fills the air Bubbling up like effervescent Coke I see people, dancing to the steady hum Leapfrogging to taste the sweet bubbles. And just before they reach ...

    Faces pass and stare For them, enough to get a glance, But for me, simply a whirl of colors Their voices assault me High and unpleasant, Sharp and cutting Snaking though my thoughts Taking over my mind They whisper. I hear it even though I’m not meant to Or maybe I am. Which ever on...

    There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Or at least, that’s what they tell me A light that will bring you so much joy Or at least, that’s what they say And this light, it is why you suffer daily Just for this light, to push you on your way. Sure, I believe them, why not? But my que...

    The price of beauty is tough Or at least, it is according to Momma She'd said this while she brushed my hair, Using it as an excuse to yank and pull She'd said this when I tripped on my dress That is, after beating me for ruining it She'd said this when I couldn't eat no more Because my ski...

    ‘Hi’ her face said, ‘My name is Brittany. Want to dance?’ He’d never spoken to her, never seen her, but he knew. Her friend, he knew her too. Not as blond, not as skinny, not nearly as pretty, ‘Hi. I’m here for backup. Come sit with us, make us laugh.’ “Jason” a voice said,...
