    Polished gold Amongst dank pale shadows, Beyond overlapping stones Of sheer cold, At midnight’s daze. Making breath visible Alas, it illuminates Through the most opaque night. No light to be seen, No stars up in the sapphire painted sky; No sounds to be heard, No one awake to listen or ...

    You taunt me Black ink upon a page; Perfect, fluid characters formed By a smooth fountain pen; Thriving on energy Breathe; The exhalation causes my lungs to quiver, Vocal folds act as puppets Crashing together; You are the puppeteer; The lost raspy voice, Wispy and breathy is caused by yo...

    Looking through social networking sites, the majority of people wrote what they were thankful for. I could not help pitying myself since this Thanksgiving my leg was wrapped in a bandage. It had only been a day since I had surgery on my leg to remove my metal plate. I had been itchy due to a mild...

    Beneath the trees Overhead The wind begins to shriek. Suddenly droplets of rain Plummet onto the green leaves. The town that Was once a desert Is now flooded. The rain falls in every direction Washing away anything unwanted— The aftermath of Earth’s tantrum. The water thins out, Th...

    One ray of sunshine A single droplet of rain Whispered words One step further One wrong move People together A feud arising Waterfalls down faces Corners of your mouth turning upward Fate trickles on While coincidence runs wild....

    A pebble Skims a pristine lake Now it’s not so pristine anymore An owl Screeches through a silent night Not so silent anymore The sky is blue Like teardrops But also the color of the sea Clouds push apart And oceans feed into rivers Lightning strikes and thunder crashes Broken heart...

    I don’t know how to put this into words Without it sounding absurd There are many quotes people write To try to reason with reality They fail to grasp anything but insanity No one seems to believe in perfection What they can’t see It’s just a deadly infection A temporary state of mind ...

    Crashing through the waves Tumbling onto shore Latching onto schools of fish Just to fall upon the ocean floor The edges have dulled Scratched by sand Sat in child’s hand Thrown at the sky Just a piece of broken glass If it weren’t already broken It would be now If it hadn’t...

    There is a picket fence outside my palace It’s white, it never fades, And a mote can’t compare. There are never bold intruders That would even dare Pull at the lock. Covered with bronze colored rust Clasped to the wooden gate, Never has it been snatched Not even a bitter raindrop Can...

    (Verse I) Yesterday we broke out into a fight I said things I didn’t mean You saw me in a different light I’m sorry if you lay in ruins I’m sorry if it’s too late now To take back the damage I’ve caused (Chorus I) Pompeii, I want you back Lost something beautiful Because I erup...

    (Verse I) People walk in circles Hands up in the air Trying to find something To grasp and to make theirs So I sit here Writing a song And imaging love with no wrongs Your picture pops into my head And there’s something here that must be said (Chorus I) Imagine us in a movie Imagine ...

    (Verse I) Love songs Poems Romantic comedies Dramas Lullabies With soft melodies All telling me to believe But I don’t want to be naïve So I tell myself love doesn’t exist But maybe there’s something that I’ve missed (Chorus) I have a fear Of falling in love I’m afraid To...

    Why is the Earth crashing down? Why can’t I hear a sound Of what you say Don’t fade away Memories don’t fade away You know the stars will keep shining Even when you stop And the stairs will keep winding After both your knees have locked People will keep talking After you can’t bear...

    I’ve always been a believer An ever-lasting endeavor Always passed by flowers Without seeing their prickly thorns I’d just run circles for hours But once you came I had no one else to blame I thought you changed me How naïve could I be? (Chorus) Cinderella never had to fetch her ow...

    October 19th has always been an unfair day for Destiny Faraday and she presumes it will perpetually be that way. Since she is bounced from one boarding school to the next, she doesn’t bother with friendships and she engages in the very least of conversations with her peers. Exasperated by the tu...

    Everyone’s personality is composed of values and traits, reflecting their past. Jenna Fox however, does not remember her past at all or the components of her personality for that matter. Astonishingly, she can recite poems word for word that she doesn’t even remember reading, but she does not...

    The staircase descends I don’t dare look Where I’m headed The air is stale and moist My throat feels so dry Like I haven’t had water in three weeks I see your tail first Slithering and whipping the ground Green scales so slippery I can see my mirror image. You smile, an ominous ...

    You told me the world is flat But now I see It has more depth and dimensions But there’s more to knowledge Than just the information Just like there’s more to a novel Than just its cover And there’s more to a song Than just the music With knowledge of the world Comes the responsibili...

    According to my diary, You are the only one for me. But that was last year, ‘Cause now I know who you are, And from who I used to know, you’re now too far. It’s tangible, But I can’t see it because it’s now invisible… And you won’t lend me an ear When I desperately need one, ...
