    A small, simple key catches my eye, Standing out against my crowded keychain. What should be inconspicuous, now a glimmer Of familiarity tugging at my memory. My fingers move over the worn, rigid edges, Scratches replacing its smooth golden finish. The need to find its purpose draws me in A...

    A peaceful silence covers the playground Like the snow falling softly to the earth. The laughter of my classmates at recess Still fresh in my mind after years spent growing up. The metal is rusted and the paint chipped, Yet still standing strong as if it were yesterday. The days we spent run...

    You shine Your light on a cloudy day. You make me want to dance out in the rain. Climb a mountain just to shout Your name, You made me new. You’re by my side when they walk away. You listen to my heart when I start to pray. Even when I can’t find the words to say, You see me through. You...

    A flash of lightning illuminates the sky as I stare out my rain covered window. The storm started an hour ago, and the thick gray clouds blocking the sun aren’t making any promises to stop anytime soon. One Mississippi... Two Mississippi... Three Mississippi... A deep roar of thunder echoes thro...

    I walk into my bedroom and immediately head for the stereo. My purple bed is unmade and clothes are scattered all over my room, but that can wait. I turn the volume all the way up, letting the music flood the apartment. That is something I could never do last month. Ever since I moved in with my...

    Sitting in class on a quiet, boring day, I am wide awake but begin to dream. The voice in my head dares to say, What if things weren’t as they seem? I imagine a world turned upside down With birds that swim and fish that fly. You can drive your elephant to town And say spaghetti instead o...

    I open the door and step outside. The crunch of a leaf beneath my foot. The song of a bird above my head. The sweet, cool breeze of Spring. I walk by the houses on my street. The quick-paced steps of children. The bright colored, overflowing gardens. The smell of freshly mowed grass. I ...

    A quick brush past my window, his shadow reflects on my bedroom floor. A simple call for my occupied attention and a need for nothing more. He is a bird with invisible wings and beauty just the same. This moment is permanent in my mind like the sweetness of his name. I hear his words loud an...

    A million thoughts running through our heads. Confusion and anger, thoughts that aren’t even true. Not even sure of the meanings. What if others could hear how we feel? If its true or not, would they understand you? A million ideas, they’d overhear things. Things completely random,...

    It sits on a shelf behind a door with an impatient and excited feeling. Waiting for someone to push POWER so it can sing through speakers in the ceiling. Its lively personality is hidden away in the living room next to the stairs. Among the couches and television, when the music starts, nothi...

    The stars never seemed so wonderful. Away from the city and all of the lights, I could finally see their beauty. But it was more than that. Each star, as I laid on the pavement of the basketball court, started showing a new meaning. They weren't just bright spheres of light a million miles away...

    The tree outside my window is slowly changing colors. From the worn and faded green, transforming into a brilliant array of yellow and orange. They leave behind the memories of Summer and begin creating new ones. The painter taking His paintbrush to each leaf, giving them their own life, allowing th...

    There is light even in the dark. After night, there is the day. Just because you can't see the stars doesn't mean they go away. There is strength behind your weakness. And faith beneath the fear. When you feel like you're alone, I will always be right here....

    With the music playing softly and the words said loud and clear, the lyrics flowing around you are what you need to hear. You can't explain what you are feeling, but right when the verses start, it's as if the meaning of the song came straight from your heart....

    Aren't you tired of running? With the questions blurring by. You could see all of the answers if you'd only stop to try. Aren't you ready for a rest? You wouldn't miss another chance. But you rush past all the signs without a passing glance. Aren't you longing for a ...

    The days are moving faster now. I can't do anything but watch them go. They are fading as the sun goes down. There's still so much I want you to know. Each sunset we might be further apart, but the distance can make you strong. As these words dance around your heart, just smile a...

    All these words are spinning like the stars around the moon. It would be easier to catch them but I'm running way too soon. Just slow my step and maybe try to be patient like the sea. And like the waves, the perfect words will crash right into me....

    I can feel that I am falling. I am getting closer to the edge. If I slip it could be dangerous. But I am too far to reach the ledge. Take my hand and pull me to safety. Before I fall alone, myself to blame. You can't say that this is risky, Because you are falling just the same....

    You say we can move mountains. Walk hand in hand into the sun. Ask me to stay forever, and I promise I won't run. We'll push away the rainclouds and watch the skyline change to blue. We'll dance with moonlight at our footsteps. I'll save the sunset just for you....

    She walks away with a smile on her face. But beneath it, her fragile heart is broken. Surrounded by people, feeling out of place. A secret because the words are still unspoken. The world keeps growing but it seems so small. Searching for someone to come take her hand. A person who cares enoug...

    Reach and kiss the stars goodnight. The world is slowly spinning. The day is hiding behind the moon, But the night is just beginning. Close your eyes and drift away Into your world of fearless dreams. Let go of thoughts and worries. They are bursting at the seams....

    I have my brush, I have my paint. I am ready for this to start. I have my canvas, I just cant wait. To let it flow straight from my heart. From this seat, the perfect view. Just waiting for the perfect time. A beautiful sunrise, so bright and new. The first brush stroke, a simple line. A des...
