    Love. There it was-flowing out of my eyes. Racing through my soul. Zinging through my heartstrings and electrifying every breath that I took. I was in love with him. I laughed as he kissed my nose, crouching over me in the dim light projecting from my small pink book lamp. “Tell me somethi...

    It was way back in the twenty-third century-back when I was still Space Admiral in the Inter-planetary Milky Way Galaxy Navy. I was young, intelligent, and handsome…and had just received a slew of shiny war medals from my service in the Anglo-Martian War. I was at the top of my game and it seemed ...

    I’m sorry that I beat your heartstrings Like the worn leather of a weathered drum. I should have been more careful, When I heard the soft horizon hum. Dreams are so soft-spoken, And yet nightmares ring aloud I should have left and saved you, Before leaving you up on that cloud. So...

    Her eyes are bright, Her smile fake. Controlling and jealous, My grins she takes. Backhanded comments, Hot bruising words, Effortless anger, Priorities are blurred Who gave you the power to make me so sad? Who told you it was alright-do frowns make you glad? You make me feel like...

    It’s not fair to either of us For love to tug at our hearts And to forcibly intertwine our fingers Only to pull us apart. I’m falling down the rabbit hole like Alice My mind and pre-conceived ideas of love are shattering down To Tiny reflective pieces that mirror Technicolor wishes ...

    He’s strange. Eccentric. Off-his-rocker. Bleach blonde hair and clear green eyes. His words sparkle with intellect and grace, Yet his demeanor is awkward and fragile, like a young bird about to fly for the first time. Something draws me to him. The rhythm he feels through his fee...

    Tuesday, May 8 1944 1:00 am Sometimes, when the lights went out for the night, he pulled her parting gift out of his knapsack. Henry would sit quietly in his bunk, listening to the even sounds of his comrades’ breathing as they drifted off into a blissful oblivion. He would rub his finger...

    It’s wrong. It’s wrong. It’s wrong. Why is she crying? She has done nothing wrong. She has done nothing but tried to derive pleasure from pain And pain from pleasure. She has failed once again-and the willows weep with her. The sky cries tears of everlasting sorrow Which will be re...

    Perfect lip gloss. Bright sunshine hair. Size zero jeans. High Heels. She’s absolutely fascinating in the way she moves from boy to boy-quickly and happily. Quickly… Happily… Or at least, she appears so. I would be torn apart if I experienced half the heartbreak that her pale eyes ha...

    Bright eyes and half-smiles, You’re heartbeat is the rhythm of my very being. Keep dancing with me in your basement, Keep walking through puddles with bare feet. Don’t ever stop bike riding past stop signs, Don’t ever stop showing up late. I know your heart better than I know my fa...

    Goodnight, little nightmare. I bid you goodbye. No tears shall be shed at your meaningless departure. There will be no memorial to your smile or to your music. You were an unhappy thing in my heart and mind. But soon you'll be thousands of miles away, so I can rest happy and saf...

    Hello there, nightmarish angel, It’s been so long since I saw you smile. Now when I hear that song, I always turn up the dial. I see you in the hallway, Your eyes so dark and stained. And I still feel those old somber stars, A love that still remains. I’m sorry I never told you...

    It hurts when they throw those words at my skin As if I don’t feel As if I don’t grin. It burns when they splash My face with those lies Like fiery breath Extinguished by cries It stings when they break My heart into two So shattered and down Can’t fix it with glue It sears ...

    Gone are the days of the Fireflies, of soft bright eyes, Of little white lies. Vanished are nights of dances on the dock, Of bicycle locks And five-hour long talks. Goodbye to the way that the wind whipped my hair And carried my prayers Up rickety stairs. Farewell to the sounds of sw...

    Our billionth date. I’ve started to lose track after nine months of laughter and kisses and hand-holding. It was our billionth date. We went out ice skating. He was just as clumsy as I was-his black rented skates too big for his double-socked feet; the laces coming undone as soon as w...

    Have you ever kissed someone underwater? I’ve heard it’s a pretty crazy sensation. You have to move your mouth around all those crazy bubbles and water molecules-all the while holding your breath and trying to hold on to another human being. Hormones and feelings of love and lust are rushing...

    Black Out. It was always the black out. Blackouts gave Seth the creeps. They brought back both good memories and bad ones-but mostly bad ones. Memories of manhunt with the neighborhood kids were quickly overshadowed by thoughts of days shut away in dark library rooms-grounded. Forced to study for ...

    Collision. The speeding black jeep collided with Elliot’s car. Confusion. Elliot and his girlfriend Amber were trapped inside. Elliot calls out her name- she doesn’t answer. Sadness. Elliot holds her hand. She fades away-whispering last ‘I love you’s to the blue sky. Anger. Fury wel...

    Three steps. Two steps. One step. Jay approached the door slowly, hiding the tiny red rose behind his back. He took a deep breath before raising his fist to tap twice on the smooth oak. It only took a moment for the door to open and reveal a pretty girl in pink flannel pajamas. Her hair was me...

    I wish we flew in paper planes Across the air and seas There would be no crashes, only crumples But we might run out of trees Across the air and seas The paper planes would fly But we might run out of trees Less people would have died The paper planes would fly No smoke would clog the a...

    My gun is rigid at my side-loaded and ready to shoot. But I know that I do not need it anymore. The smooth black metal has become surprisingly comforting in the last few months. It is what protects me from the flame covered world. You would think that a murder machine might inspire fear into a pe...

    Abby Summers died at exactly 12:39 p.m. It was hot inside the Cafeteria of L.J. Efficient High School. Perhaps too hot, because that’s when Abby Summers passed out from heat exhaustion. She was rushed straight to the local hospital, where she was promptly cooled down and given a glass of i...

    It was ironic that we lived on a street named Ocean Avenue, Since the ocean was nowhere in sight. It was a quaint avenue of monotony, Which sometimes sparkled in the light. Shrouded in the shadows of sunflowers, You could run and live all day. Across the street lived Erin, Who liked to ...
