    10 months to mess around and make memories that will have have to be good enough for a lifetime 310 days to decide what I want to do with my life: who I want to be, where I want to go, my dreams, my goals, my desires 7,440 hours until my tears no longer drop into highschool pools and on old lock...

    I used to think life was my own, personal canvas to paint however I wanted: abstract, portraits, watercolour, acrylics. But i didn't realize the world was full of so many other artists all struggling to get their designs sketched onto the Earth's gentle fabrics. The canvas can only SPREAD...

    Maybe you'll come running back one day: hazel eyes, crooked smile, smelling like chlorine and antiques. You'll want something telling me you were wrong before about your infatuation with green eyes telling me that you're no longer colourblind. You'll take my hand holding it carefully, as o...

    I am a student in the most beautiful city on the face of the planet, where the mountains reach the clouds and the setting sun kisses the ocean's gentle waves as they crash gracefully against the sand. I'm passionate about everything I try to do, and I aim to do it well. I am a writer: one ...

    I'm a girl with a list. Ever since I started falling for boys and realized they didn't actually have cooties or smell funny, I knew I wanted a guy with blue eyes and a tall figure to love me. I wanted to fall for him after learning everything there was to know about him. I wanted a guy ...

    Everything changed after that one message, and I don't know much, but this I do: You laugh and smile that movie-star smile and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. You still watch cartoons, and sit on the floor, cross-legged, throwing popcorn from a big bowl at anyone who interrupts yo...

    Seven years. It seems only months ago that I was reading BOOKS, studying up, preparing myself for your arrival. I remember bringing you home in that small, cardboard box like it was yesterday, hearing the scratching of your claws along the bottom. When we brought you home and set up your cage,...

    Thoughts of what I used to feel for you still flood through my memories sometimes, especially when she tells me she's fallen for someone - that she's scared of getting hurt. I tell her not to be. I say he's a great guy, with sparkling eyes, attentive ears, and he could fall for her ju...

    The clock ticked as the students all sat in silence, waiting for the teacher to hand out the exam papers. The buzz of the lights hummed through my ears. Behind me, the boy with an abundance of freckles tapped his foot against his desk rapidly, keeping a dubstep beat. It reminded me of the MUSIC I bl...

    I am no longer infatuated by you, nor do I crave the taste of your lips on mine, but I am no where near free of your hold. Why do I care what you do, after all this time? Why do I depend on your familiarity, like a child, comforted by the face of her mother in times of trouble? Every time your acti...

    You asked for strawberry and you received: but it was gelato, and not the sorbet you had set out for. Could you give it back? You'd only licked it a couple times... But you'd asked for strawberry and you'd gotten it: Maybe you should've asked for a different flavour alt...

    Maybe it shouldn't matter so much because it all ends next year, anyway But I never wanted you to be someone I had to miss. The hardest part is that your strength overpowers me in this game of tug-of-war, but still, I cling on to that rope with the bleeding callouses on my hands. I m...

    In a weird way, he was almost too perfect: the kind of guy you see on tumblr read stories about, and see in movies. I felt like I was the star of my own Hollywood production when we spoke. His words danced in my mind and my heart flirted with the idea of loving him someday and being loved b...

    Some people only seem to know how to use others like pens: Handy until the ink runs out, and then thrown into the trash like they never were any use to them at all...

    So I'll sit on the couch, sinking into the pillows, half-wishing that they could swallow me whole as I stare blankly at beige walls It feels as if they are closing in, holding me hostage tight and claustrophobic until it feels that my breath is running out, what's left pushing...

    Funny, I actually believed in you, Unconsciously giving you the key to my heart Crazy enough to believe you wouldn't forget it, but attach it to a Keychain; little did I know You had a collection, Only there for your amusement, as I gave you more copies when you said you'd lo...

    My parents always warned me Not to take candy from strangers. They taught me never to share lunches, drinks, or to ever, ever do drugs. My parents told me that Drugs Could be consumed and hidden In thousands of ways: Capsules, powders, needles, Lasers, liquids - even as every day medicati...

    There was a time When I let my mind play the devil And sand filled my heart Where it was otherwise empty There was a time When I believed I would always be Alone And after years of Being lost at sea, Drowning, Deep in the sand of time I realized I am so much more Than just another cr...

    Clowns with faces caked with makeup surround me. I never liked clowns: they think they're funny but really, they're just annoying. You never know who you're communicating with There are a lot of colors in theme parks and carnivals. They're all happy colors - bright red...

    I am afraid of climbing mountains because I fear the height will tempt someone to push me off the edge Sometimes, I think I can make it up, the whole way but my body gives in Even with you; My knees go weak, but it is more truthful to admit that you make my entire body go numb, And...

    Why is it, when we watch movies, read books and daydream, that we identify more with fantastical creatures than the humans? Are we so aesthetic and self-absorbed that we see ourselves as the beautiful ones, despite all our flaws? Or is it, perhaps, the opposite altogether: We loathe ...

    My heart beats against my chest in hard, tumultuous patterns It is unclear, what has just unfolded. yet my lungs fill up with excitement. Here I was, beginning to detest love, looking with a misanthropic view on life - who would've thought that with five simple words you could change ...

    These poisoned days pass slowly, dragging on, infected blood running through my veins, ever-present in my pulse. Some sicknesses are attained through time or aging, but I was unfortunate enough to be diagnosed since childhood, since I first touched that swing-set, played with trucks in sand...

    He was old, but not too old: he had silver in his hair, a golden heart I can see him sitting on that hospital bed, surrounded by white walls and blue curtains, the beeping of machines ringing every so often, Thin, wrinkled hands and long fingers, much like a pianist's, one holding on to t...

    I've decided that all scientists do is lie: According to the laws of physics, if I am attracted to you, you should be attracted to me, too. So why is it that gravity is not pulling you closer to me? Why do you feel so far away? Chemists say that, when triggered, any compound can have a re...
