    I see the surface above, So far away. Where things are broken and fallen apart At the end of the day. We’re sinking, you and I Sinking into a deep unknown Follow me down, down, down Where you’ve always wanted to go. We are so close and yet so far I sometimes feel like We’re speed...

    This life isn’t worth living, At least not anymore. He took his life and mine, He shut the ever-open door. I’m here, don’t know what to do Somebody please help me Anyone will do. I think nobody would even come, If I were to leave. I didn’t leave so much as a footprint, Nobody w...

    Green, verde, vert It surrounds us It’s encompassing It’s beautiful But what happens when the green goes away When the true darkness exposes itself When the Ugliness comes out What happens then? Does all the light go away? Or does the sun shine even brighter? Does the world close i...

    Everybody hurts As if life is not enough You feel like you’ve been handed the works A snowball on a mountain top But that’s life It knocks you down Picks you up It’s the redeemer, the forgotten one What you will choose In everything you do Comes down to what you will loose In ev...

    Green. Green trees, Green plants, even green birds It’s everywhere. It covers everything. It’s as if a wind came Swept up all the fauna in the world And dropped it here. In this single beautiful wonderland There lies life unknown to the brief passer by But to the person who looks up clo...

    “The weather for this week will be hot, hot, hot; temperatures up in the 90s, typical for a Colorado summer.” The newscasters voice rang out from my grandmas TV. I sat at the kitchen table reading my favorite book, Because of Winn-Dixie, for the tenth time that summer. Ringggg. The phone inte...

    He doesn’t know me but I know him. He’s that guy that everyone loves, the guy that everyone wants to be. I watch him at his locker; he pulls out his books with the grace of a god. There isn’t a falter in his step as he closes the door: the door to his locker and the door between us. The opport...

    The world turned, it turned into a sadistic merry go round that refused to stop. It spun and spun and I felt as if I was seeing purple. The purple of the key in my hand, the special purple key that I made her. I looked at the tiny thing as it lay in my hand and then something overtook me and ...

    It has taken me years to figure out that life isn't about making lemonade out of lemons. It's about taking those lemons and finding an ingenious way to create the sweetest lemonade you'v ever tasted. There will be batches that taste like sour grapes and then some who surprise you with...

    Kindergarten: I was spinning, around and around, my arms outstretched wide as the wind my body created flew past my fingertips. My feet glided off the floor and for a moment I was breathless until I came crashing down. I felt my head smack against something hard. When I looked up I came face to f...

    The sun streamed through the paned window, the heat causing sweat to drip down my bare legs, they were in a bent position resting against the edge of the couch, my hands fluttered over the letter in my hand, the words on top read Evicted. The letter had come today, it had been tacked on the door wit...

    I sat in my room, the dark purple walls enclosing the small space, there was no air to breathe, there was only me and the dark. I was having another attack. It was like this every time, I normally enclosed myself in the confines of my bathtub but John was in the bathroom. The food hadn’t come toda...

    A brick laid down on top of another brick. One by one the bricks are placed together among thousands of others of the same façade. Slowly the bricks form a wall, which turns into a room, which becomes a home, a place to be. One by one the bricks are stacked until they are so high that a bird can sp...

    I ran out of the room, keys jingling between my fingers and tears threatening to spill out of my eyes. The sound of footsteps followed close behind me but I ignored them. My hand found the handle and I threw open the wood paneled front door and tore down the walkway, stumbling over a forgotten skate...

    We pulled into the circular driveway of Beckman Academy and my dad stopped the car. I told myself I could do this. It wouldn’t be that bad. Anything was better than my old school full of people I didn’t want to think about. Both my mom and my dad unbuckled and climbed out of our old Volvo statio...

    I opened the mailbox and peered in. My heart skipped a beat in the apprehension that it wouldn’t be there. However, just like the day before, there it was. It sat in its daisy pink covering that smelled faintly of lilac; just as she had years ago. I reached my hand delicately in and pulled it out....

    I listened as the song started. The beat that had called me to take that first step called me to take it again. I felt the slight pain as it radiated through me but I pushed through, pointing my foot to its full extension possible. The music began claiming me as it took over my body. It filled my lu...
