    I just lie there, Everything unravels. My vision becomes unclear, Staring at nothing. He speaks the words I’d feared. You’re gone, It’s over now, I fell today....

    As I click on the red, green, blue, and yellow flag in the very bottom left of my computer screen, and click on the Word processing program, I tie back my hair. As I always do in busy times, very much so like Violet in the Series of Unfortunate Events. I begin this piece in an unusual way, not that ...

    I walked further down the sidewalk, away from where he was standing. I looked at the ground, clutched my arms like you do when you’re cold, and decided to turn back around. When I did this, I didn’t know he was there and I almost ran into him. In the split second that this happened, he pulled me...

    Lately there's been a lot of talk of death where I live. Three teenagers I am familiar with have died in the past two months. Not the most positive atmosphere. The most recent death was that of a young eighth grader who committed suicide. I had known the girl fairly well. She rode my bus, lived...

    "No, she's sitting right here." He glanced to my seat and back out the window. "We haven't left yet, so we should be back to school at around 6:30-7:00." he continued. I had no idea what his mother was saying on the other line but I assumed from his side of the...

    "You're dismissed, class." Sporadically, the class stood up and left the classroom, and I was the first one out of the room. I walked a little quicker to stay ahead of the crowd, when my friend Natasha called to me, "Hey Kristie, wait up!" I turned to her as s...

    I’d give anything to see you walk around that corner. To see your face, For no reason, Would make me the happiest person in the world I’m by myself, I wish you were here. Show up. Whimsical Your presence is enough. Nothing need be said, Just to have you here, I would feel complet...

    I squinted through the bright sunlight, and got a good view of my pitcher. I got into stance and waited for the ball to be thrown. Suddenly the ball was hurdled in my direction, a little faster than I needed it to be, but I was ready. My position stiffened as I braced for the impact, the ball inched...

    My hair is curly. And I want it straight. I envy those girls, They're never late But I am, a lot. Because I have a routine. I wish I had that reassurance. That my hair would always be perfect. All I'd have to do, Is take a shower, and brush it. But its not that easy, for me. I ...

    Your phone is dead? Poor you. There's people who can't be fed. To them, that's nothing new. You missed your favorite show last night? Doesn't that suck. There kids living on streets with no home in sight. Where's their luck? Your friend can't make it to the ...

    I woke up unwillingly, and although it took me several tries, I got out of bed completely and into the shower. The rest of the morning went by in a blur, with thoughts that included of things like "Okay now time to brush my teeth", "Have to get dressed in a few minutes" and "...

    Life is like an iPod. You may not like the music, But you can always change it. You can live your life on shuffle, Not knowing what's next. Or you can set it on a play list, And live your life planned. It comes in all different colors, And you can personalize it too. When it comes ...

    My mother and I. We have a strange relationship. Sometimes we can have a good time together. But most of the time I find myself disagreeing with her. The way she thinks is just so absurd. My friends think I'm crazy. For dealing with her rules, but for me if I don't it's like I'm ...

    When they see her, they see an average teenager. But when she looks in the mirror, she sees a failure. She sees all the mistakes and blame right there on her face. She tries to look away but she can't. She tries to accept defeat but she can't. When she looks in the mirror, she's tryin...

    All those years, I thought you were crazy. I always told myself you were lying, telling me only what I wanted to hear. But I didn't want to hear it. I knew what you were, and what you did. You were a player, so I ran away from you, even though you told me countless times how badly you wanted me...

    Don't leave me, But go away. I hate you, But I love you. Just listen, But shut up. Can I have that? But I don't want it. Its ugly, But I love it! It tastes nasty, But can I have more? I don't like you, But you wanna hang out tomorrow? I'm tired, But ...

    Do you realize the Earth’s value to humanity? Its gives us natural resources, food, water, and life; we couldn’t even breathe without the earth. And your decisions affect everything and everyone around you. The importance of the Earth is greater then you could ever imagine, and I could say hundr...

    My mom and I went on a camping trip and we stayed there for 2 weeks. There were a lot of mountain peaks, so we went mountain climbing. We had a great time, my mom and I love the outdoors. On our way back home there was a call from a policeman, and I’m sorry to say that it was not a good one. Whe...

    Maple Street was rather quiet and cold, a December morning. It was 4:30 a.m. and dark outside, the street lights were still shining brightly against the darkness. In a way it was a picture perfect morning, but yet, somehow mysterious. In the shadows of the trees, lining the narrow, dead-end, stre...

    I woke to the sounds of birds singing merrily The annoying sun shone brightly in my sleepy eyes Puffs of white cotton hung high in the sky The wind was giving out long heavy sighs I ran with the wind, free at last The mood was set at anxious and exited I watched the kites flying unbridled in...

    You might not hear it But its there Its everywhere Even the harmony of the birds chirping The thrumming of a bees wings against its body The smooth sound of the wind rustling through the trees Put it together and hear it If you just listen closely But no, You won’t take the time You’re...

    Slowly my eyes opened another fantasy dream. Why must he haunt me in a place that’s supposed to be called dreams? They're more like nightmares. I glanced at the clock, 4:56 AM, four more minutes and my alarm would have gone off. Lucky me, I woke up early. Throughout the morning, he was all...

    Tomorrow I go to camp, and honestly its my sweet escape. When I go to camp I don't have to hear my mom screeching at me to clean up my room, or to unpack the dishwasher. I don't have to answer the phone 800 times a day, only to find that 750 of them are from my one friend. I don't ...
