    She ran and ran Stumbling and tumbling toward freedom she hopes, though the end is unclear. Storm clouds, no rain flowers sway in the breeze, scattering like her thoughts, her hopes, her dreams Sleeping away, that was what she did life running past her like the way she’s r...

    I am not strong. I cannot withstand the gusty gales of wind as Trees, the sturdy warriors, do. I cannot move mountains or even small hills I cannot silence the sea, crashing interminably. I am not strong. I cannot ignore the arrows shot at me Or the bullets that whiz past my ear. I ca...

    How could you have just been here? And now your seat is an empty one The eyes of your friends are hollow They just can’t believe you’re gone. I can’t say we were friends Because we had so little time But I’m sure if we had the chance We would have been just fine. But now that chanc...

    Dear child, just close your eyes The night is closing in, I know But tonight the stars shine bright And will guide your way back home. Empty gazes on the lonely faces Of those whose memories will hurt the most And at night the tears spill over When they think they hear your ghost. Fading ...

    So many different roads to travel down Which dreamy, worn-out pathway do I take? Secret dreams lead me away from this town But my past I cannot seem to forsake. My memories smile, like a long-lost friend Taking me back to summers of laughter Where each moment lived was right to the end Fil...

    I wonder if he ever thought it would lead to this. I am standing here, looking him straight in the eyes. They are the color of a muddy river, and some may consider them to be ugly and boring. Not me. I can’t imagine seeing them any other way. Those eyes are gazing at me, with a look of wonder ...

    A couple seconds tick by, and the boy cannot stand it any longer. He opens his mouth to speak, but then closes it again, as if he could not find the words. The girl sitting opposite him stares at him with anger in her face. Her eyes, however, are sad and tired. Her fiery red hair is tied up in a dan...

    She ran because she couldn’t take it. The pressure pushed her over the edge, the spiteful words killed her spirit, the reflection in the mirror broke her heart. She could not understand what she did wrong because she tried so hard. She was almost perfect, and the marginal amount of imperfection sh...

    To each their own! The drowning sweethearts sing A hazy gaze aimed towards me But I could not see a thing. My heart has wandered off its path Little loss, scared, afraid The tethered rope that kept me here Has now begun to fray. Longing for a change of face The haunting eyes remain Emp...

    Who are you? You, who once knew me so well, Now know me like a stranger. Where have you gone? You, who wrote my past and rewrote my future, Have disappeared into the night, Into a blanket of stars Your twinkling eyes lost. Who am I without you? I am a song without words A picture without c...

    The first time I met Sam, we were babies. His mom and my mom were friends when they were pregnant, so we were literally friends at birth. Our moms soon scheduled play dates for us every week, sometimes more than once. We crawled, colored, and took our first steps together. He played dolls with me an...

    He can’t be gone, he can’t be gone. He was here just yesterday, and suddenly he’s gone. I didn’t even know he was leaving. I never got to say goodbye. I was in a whirlwind, my thoughts tangled up like a ball of yarn in my head. I remember random funny moments with Shawn. Like the time we...

    Thunder rolling, lightning striking. I don’t really care at this point. I choose to lay here, mesmerized by what I see above me. Most people think that lying on a rooftop as a former hurricane approaches is not a good idea, but I’m not most people. I like to think that I’m happier than most pe...

    I slammed the door behind me, and I didn’t look back. I flagged down the nearest taxi and told the driver to take me to West 36th Street in Brooklyn. I didn’t know where that would leave me, but I needed to get away from the horrible brownstone building in central Manhattan. In the midnight ra...

    With tears streaming down my face, I turned around and ran. I ran, barefoot and broken, through the open field behind the house, with its overgrown weeds and wildflowers that I loved and my mother hated. I didn’t know where I was going, but I knew from what I was going away. I looked behind me...

    What is this thing called love? Breaking hearts but filled with joy Seeing it played out before you Is this bliss over some silly boy? Little girl, oh how they dream Prince Charming and swept off feet But to their dismay, there’s no white steed And Charming tackles on the football team. G...

    I am hidden. Behind my mask of uncertainty and fear my true self lies. I am a wallflower. I grow steadily towards the ceiling, stuck alone on pale, cracked plaster that is so paper thin I can hear my own thoughts echo through to the room next to mine. I stand by myself, on the endless line to being ...

    Hand in hand Heart in heart Mind in mind Soul in soul. Coming together, United we stand Against them, the ones Who don't care, We can change their minds. We can change their heats. We can change their souls. From hate, It morphs into a love like no other. We alone stood agai...

    When I close my eyes The memories burned into my cerebrum Will they leak into my mind Like the first time I viewed them? Will they blend endlessly Into photo after photo Until it becomes a song A symphony of solos When I am alone Will they break into my mind? They violently break the l...

    If you would look closer than you see Maybe you’d find a true girl But at your distance I am lost In a distant thunder whirl. Step into my shoes And maybe you’ll discover That the words that I drown out Are the ones I wish to uncover. Lost in secret A thousand stones I have to ski...

    I look up, terrified and scared. He stands there; carrying a plant I believe is called a Mandrake, and smiles a big, toothy grin. “Hi,” he says in a friendly manner. “My name’s Neville. Neville Longbottom.” Neville. I do not believe I have heard that name before, and in my time in Englan...

    Jealousy is the color of brackish water, Clouding one’s vision until a person is blind to all reason. It smells rancid like spoiled milk, Pervading one’s nostrils until it overpowers the person it’s affecting. It looks shadowy like a ghost who keeps reappearing, Haunting one wit...

    Raindrops light as feathers caress her shoulders that soften as a rich, dark curtain of hair falls down her elegant back. The hidden brother watches from the shuttered antique windows of the faded crimson barn in the open vegetable field. Splashing slightly, the girl saunters between rows of cabbage...
