    He smiles, shoving his notes just a bit further to the left and gesturing at my blank paper. I smile back. It feels too large and open-lipped, like someone plastered a clown's heedless grin on my own tiny lips. But he nods and turns back to the teacher. I start writing. The pencil is...

    My lips press against his, my hands against his chest. Breathe. Breathe. Air hisses down my throat, into his. My hands pump his ribcage, one pump, two pump, stop, breathe, start again. “Come on,” I whisper. “Come on. Please. Please.” Breathe. Pump. Breathe. His eyelid flic...

    "Love is about the little things." She always used to say that. It was her motto, her standard of living. The way she looked at each and every day, each and every person or creature she loved. "Love is about the little things. It isn’t about the grand gestures or huge decla...

    I forgot there was a test today… Mr. Hermes hates me. Why did I have to do all of those problems three times? More homework? Because we didn’t already have enough… Does this skirt make my butt look fat? I shook my head rapidly, feeling the pain of cold metal slamming into my back ...

    If a seed is cast Upon the wind Someone, somewhere, will catch it If the Heavens are turned Upon a scene Too beautiful to behold Someone, somewhere, will see it If a cry is loosed Upon the world To shake, and ring, and tremble Someone, somewhere, will hear it If knowledge is set...

    I feel like if I fly far enough, I would fly away from you. Have you ever felt like that? Like if you just spread your arms far enough, lift your head high enough, you’ll soar into the sky? That when you break the clouds, all your troubles will be gone? Maybe that if you reach the moo...

    I’m so sorry I left you behind. I never meant to, I swear. I clung to you so tightly you bled. But it wasn’t hard enough. It’s never hard enough to resist the moon’s pull. The stars, my dear, they dance. They serenade me with tinkling voices, convince me I’m better off....

    Call children sociopaths all you want, they still won’t cease to amaze me. Psychologists say that children are, in essence, sociopaths. They don’t have a fully developed sense of right and wrong. They don’t have what our religions, or our parents, or our society define as ‘morals’, pe...

    My knees sank into the ground half against my will. Kneeling was against everything I believed in, but she deserved it. She did. I leaned forward, slender piano fingers tracing the twelve letters carved in stone. The twelve letters that made me want to beat the ground and scream. Raine Fell ...

    Could you throw a line my way? Or a rope I’m not picky But I’d just like for you To keep an open mind To understand that all I did I did out of care for you ‘Cause all is fair in love and war Or so they tell me now It was dumb It was foolish I’m smart enough To know this now ...

    She can hold you tight I can hold you tighter But the touch of my arms Would burn you like a sin Because what is a best friend But a best friend and no more? She’d have let you cry And my shirt would be soaked But the tears would sting Like acid on my skin For if I couldn’t have you ...

    I glanced around the classroom. Mr. Beriman hadn’t arrived yet, and everyone had been left to their own devices. Including me. With a small smile, I set my binders aside and flipped open my book. Fantasy, again. Mrs. Blenin would be pleased when I returned the book only a day after I’d ta...

    Eliza glanced over at her assigned reading partner. She had asked the teacher what “assi—guh—guh—ned?” meant, and the teacher had replied patiently. Eliza was left with burning cheeks and a feeling of being very, very dumb. Now her partner leaned over. Gail was his name, she remember...

    I tried hard. I really did. But no one effin’ cared. That money was supposed to go to him—it’s not my fault it never made it! The mail service must have gotten something wrong. They made me break my promise. I swear I didn’t know the T-shirt I gave away to her had I’M A DONALD D*...

    Dear Al, Can I call you Al? I think you would’ve wanted me to call you that. My mom did. I guess I’ll never really know—but it’s nice to imagine. Why did you do it? All of it? Where did you get that strength? I have read text book after text book of famous people, but none of them...

    I was standing, again. My feet felt as if I'd walked a billion miles. Or so I thought. I'd never walked a billion miles, had I? When my mom glanced away, I reached up and furtively undid the necklace again. It was itching. I didn't care if it looked pretty – it wasn't comfortable. I couldn't...

    I don’t want the world to end Only to see it Brought to its knees A sword resting upon It’s dried up heart The cries of the damned Echoing through its ears And spilling from its mouth Fire raging round and round Creeping upon the helpless arsonist The merciless eyes Of a cold, cold un...

    He did. He tried. Every day I was incapacitated in that rank hospital bad, he sat by my bedside. The first few days I tried to ignore him, regarding him with a dour attitude while inwardly admiring his persistence. But after a while, I warmed to him. He read to me. I’d tell him a book I love...

    I was in an oven. Everything burned. I was on fire. No, I was in a pit of ice, drowning, freezing, stiff and unresponsive. I was nothing. I was drifting. But slowly, so, so slowly, I came back. Light began to peek into my little slice of Hell, swarming across my vision until everything else ...

    As I fell, I heard a scream pierce the air. “AYA!” That’d be my mom. I could’ve sworn I heard another, lower voice utter the words “Oh my G-d.” Maybe I was just imagining it. All that gymnastics training wasn’t for nothing. When I reached the bottom, I landed on my feet, but qu...

    A hot blast of air whistled past my face, filling my nose, seeping into my mouth, overwhelming my senses with the taste of smoke and garbage. A scent I still hadn’t gotten used to. But then again, I’d only been down here for about ten minutes. The subway. Glorious subway. Today would be my...

    Don’t look at me—I’m an alien Yes, truly, no lie I could never tell a lie But I am Yes I am Don’t you know? I’m an alien I flew down to Earth That’s why my head Still keeps its home In the clouds Don’t look at me—I’m an alien Don’t you know? You see why my clothe...

    “You’re short.” The words slide from your lips, as you gaze down at me with your clear, fathomless dark blue eyes. Those two words swirl through my brain, taking it along a new track, remembering how we met… It was second grade. I was standing on the playground, staring forlornly ...
