    Some people say I’m judged only by my Father Others say I’m the most fortunate daughter They say I’m pure as a sacred place Calling upon the world my Father’s grace They call me princess and call me Belle They say I’m beautiful, they say I fell Down from heaven, an angel come to ...

    I flipped through the channels calmly, hand hanging off the couch. Fire, demons, and other absolutely cliché, hellish objects jumped out, along with enough obscene language to make a sailor cringe. Sighing, I kept pressing the channel up button, looking for something a little different. But after ...

    I'm just a little innocent Just a little out of it Ready to fall out the sky Without the wings I need to fly Ready to brace against a breeze Hold back a sneeze Ignore all the pain And drive some people insane I'm just a little innocent Ready to shout 'bout it Dreaming of ...

    Arms and legs burning, I force myself to keep going. A little higher and I’ll be there. This isn’t the time to quit. This has been long, this has been tiring, and I can’t wait for this to end, but it’s only the beginning. Five more feet…four…three…two…one, and I’m there. I let one...

    Today’s the day for the world to start turning For the forests to laugh while the ocean is burning For my strength against myself to succeed In this much waited-for time of need For my mind to be alert and hope to stay Leading me straight through ‘til the end of the day In less than three ...

    Don’t tell me how to cry Don’t tell me how to scream Don’t tell me how to laugh Or interpret my dreams Don’t tell me all the things I’ve done Wrong throughout the years Don’t hinder my sarcasm And don’t test my fears Don’t ever test my confidence My patience or my skill...

    When people look at her, she smiles Teeth flashing Eyes aglow They smile back Because to them Her true emotions show Hair framing her face Highlighting her eyes Her cheeks Her clothes casual Posture strong Never weak Then people turn away They’re satisfied No one sees She knows ...

    You see a rainbow When you look to the sky And put everything on hold It calls your name It leads you on Straight to a pot of gold But in the trees Are Leprechauns Matter of fact, they’re all around It doesn’t take long To turn and run Feet pounding the ground You know they’re vici...

    3.11 The door opened. Jack, Monty, and icy blue eyes walked in. Sadly, he was fine. Jack reached for Yoda. The man with icy blue eyes reached for me. Monty stood in the doorway, his arms crossed. Zelda screeched in anger, lunging at the icy blue eyes. He was caught off guard. She managed to take hi...

    3.6 I had a dream last night that I had magic of some sort and was captured by a Mord-Sith. I was tortured for months until I was finally broken, and then I was forced into all kinds of things. When I woke up, Mickey was somehow there. He was sporting a black eye and holding my hands as tight as he...

    Eventually, Zelda sang, “I want to be like other girls, scrape up my knee like other girls can, just to be free like other girls….” “Get to be!” We stood up, dancing around and singing. She sang, “To speak for myself.” I smiled, “To sing way off key.” We were a duet for, “M...

    3.2 Zelda did something once everyone, especially me, vowed to never tell anyone, ever, but I don’t think it matters anymore. See, we had been sent to a week long camp to try to teach us about these things they call ‘manners’ and ‘behaving.’ We didn’t get it, and nothing they did could ...

    2.12 At the fourth Coffee House we went to, we sang the Flying Purple People Eater song. We, of course, had on our Free Hug shirts. After we were done singing, Zelda sang Be My Escape by Relient K. She then proceeded to pull me on stage, get on one knee, and propose to me with a Ring Pop. I, of cou...

    2.7 That night, I was on stage dressed in jeans and a long, flowing plaid shirt. I was barefoot. Zelda was in the crowd, her eyes on me as words slipped from my lips and into her ears. I sang solo, and I got to sit back and relax in an “I’m doomed” kind of way whenever the boy, who’s name I...

    “Knock, knock.” I dropped the pen I had been tapping against the pages, trying to think of a way to word the next part, and glanced up at the door. My hiding place was simple yet effective: the enclosed porch. No one came out here since it was my grandmother’s cat’s domain, and she, the ...

    “Let me get this straight,” Phil, the boy, said, concentrating on his feet, “you’re sleeping in a tree house tonight?” I nodded, glancing at the clock and preparing to get off the floor, “It’s a tradition.” A tradition I refuse to give up. “To sleep in a tree house on Hallow...

    1.13 1.13 Becoming beautiful was never something Zelda and I were good at, and it wasn’t something we did often. We only ever did for dances or Halloween, and that ended badly unless someone else was around. We couldn’t do makeup or hair. At all. I’m not joking. We are the two worst people o...

    1.9 Before I could scream, another hand closed over my mouth. I bit down on the inside of the hand, making whoever it was let go. I opened my mouth, ready to go off on a tangent as I yanked my hand free, but then I heard the whisper, “Sheik, what the hell?” I spun, glaring at wherever I tho...

    1.6 There were lights in the cemeteries, so I amused myself by looking at the names on the tombstones I could see. I counted how many times Mary was on one and got fifty-three before I finally couldn’t read the words. We were going into the darkest part of the cemetery. There were no lights, and ...

    1.3 At first, I thought Bloody Mary really had shown up. I thought that the next time I saw Zelda; she would be lifeless on the oak boards of Fort Bruno. Then I heard the rustling in the tree house, the grunts and yelps of a fight between someone and Zelda, and knew that it wasn’t our good friend...

    Spending all your time wishing for the best, Let me tell you something; it’s impossible. Days wasting away as you hope and pray, Yet no one and nothing is unstoppable. Faith is strong as can, miming your beliefs. You don’t need words to speak what silence can portray. A plethora of undyi...

    Switchfoot says, “Hold fast to the break of daylight, the shadow proves the sunshine.” The only problem is, I still have to deal with the shadows. The only problem is, this isn’t a fairytale and I’m not insured a happy ending. If this were a fairytale, I’d still have my beast, the gir...
