    My ashes have not yet been spread across the Grand Canyon. The reason is simple: I am still alive. However, I am more familiar with death than someone my age should ever be and that isn't exactly a negative thing. I know this to be true because I have almost died three times. I was only four whe...

    i've always been that girl who left after the chase, but you were different; you didn't let me leave. instead you stuck around and you compared me to a wave because i always kissed the shore to recede back into the tide and sulk in my desolation, a sadness i thought i deserved. ...

    i wrapped myself in safety tape but then i remembered that you have always found a thrill in danger. you're a child toying with a devil and i am the grand canyon; you play on my cliff and i pray to the god i don't believe in that you will never fall. i hate that you care be...

    i loved you, but i loved you not. it was a confliction within my mind. because when i was held up against a wall despite my cries, i was slapped across the face and guilted into a numbed state, only to be caressed and have a place to call home when i was in the safety of your arms...

    six years ago, you were someone i called my best friend. i was stuck in a world of indifference and hatred where i cried out an ocean of tears every single night just to be hit by a wave and silenced on the shore. so i'd pick up a stick and find a spot in the sand to draw all the sins t...

    some people listen to music through their hearts, a cascade of happiness, and anger and sadness all hitting the right notes. it helps them feel, it helps them see, it helps them breathe. but i don’t need a melody. i hold my pen over my journal, thinking of everything that haunts me an...

    i've only been kissed with butter knives, their dangerous abilities carefully masked with an image of innocence and tenderness. it was only when I finally pulled away and saw my saliva on his mouth - a deep red, when i realized those kisses were killing me. never came a time where i was...

    i watch in pain as your trunk endures an occasional tumble, an array of bittersweet golden leaves scattering the dirt. i shed tears for you, for hours on end, but you reach out with your boughs and touch the sky with your twigs. i am your caregiver, nutrients and roots, you need me...

    I gave you my compliments, but you washed them down, like the pills you hide in your purse. I made you a flower crown, but you wore it on your neck, like the noose you hang in your closet. I wrote you love letters, but you burnt them to ashes, like the blunt you hold between your fing...

    no one heard my silent cries so I drowned myself in tears. but your touch lingered on my skin, it tugged me up to breathe. the vows of our once fairy-tale, now wrecked and packed aside. I saw, I heard, I felt you leave, but memories did not subside. as time ticks by and carries on what...

    I still have the letters, in which you wrote, “I could never continue this life without you,” and I’ve been counting it’s been five hundred days – we haven’t spoken, but life hasn’t changed much...

    together, we conquer the world; our laughter spills mounds of honey, our joy brings together the heavens – even our tears complete the oceans. you’ve planted a flower in my heart and I’d like for you to know: we may not live forever, but your love has left its mark....

    do you remember when we walked along the shore to leave our footprints behind and our names in the sand? such little did I know – future hikes on the beach, I’d walk the shore alone, with forever washed away....

    This hill: at first sight, it’s the closest thing to perfection. The comfort that the serenity brings here is priceless. Its isolated location ensures peace at all times. The grass diffuses with the flowers planted in the meadow and a light drizzle feeds the field with a daily dose of vitamins. ...

    that night I lost a part of me, yet I thought that I was bound. my grip was too loose, you see, and love slipped out of grasp. I pat him on the back and said, “hun, you know you’re better.” he looked at me with puppy eyes, and left me here forever. I said goodbye to him, you see,...

    your words echo, throughout my head. it often brings security. for without you, I sing alone; these breathless gasps beseech for you. I crave for warmth – I need your smile, to hear that laugh, and see those eyes. I often lie, but here’s the truth. I’d give my life for you...

    we woke up together this morning; our bodies touching under the sheets. I giggled as I tapped your nose, “you take too much of the bed!” then you put your arms on my waist and I froze as I heard your mellow sigh. the next three words oddly rattled me: “I love you”, you said. as e...

    Underestimation of her own abilities was her only flaw. The world could easily see the attributes she had and presented her with a realm of possibilities, but she would not take her chances as her trust in her potential was slim to none. That day, I wished I could show her what she was to everyon...

    “you are so much more. you cannot be a writer; you’re much too smart!” you gasp. you say I cannot be, but I am. I am a writer; I do not speak in pi or derivatives, or recite the quadratic formula. I do not think in quantum mechanics, or identify all of Newton’s laws. I do not ...

    they told me over and over again, “Time will help you get through this. she leisurely erases the unforgettable. she creates a new to replace the old. Time will mend your broken heart. keep her with you and she will save you,” then I reached out to grab pieces of Time and began walking...
