    Mommy, are you proud of me? Did you see what I did today? I got up and took my life back, And started to do things my way. You were right when you said I let people control me, That I shouldn't act so sensitive And wear my heart on my sleeve. But the secrets I kept Weighed so heavy ...

    Sometimes I have really bad days. I just wake up and I can feel all this pressure mounting on top of me. And it's so hard to breathe. It's like trying to inflate and deflate a balloon over and over again. There's nothing on the inside except air and empty space. And I'm shaking. ...

    The air is dry, empty. It's neither cold nor hot. There is no wind, no breeze of any kind. The leaves do not rustle; there are no birds chirping. Everything is eerily still. The concrete pathway is smooth and crack-less, clear of any debris. Everything is in order; the grass is cut short, the g...

    During the hours of the day I'm fine. I can walk and talk with my usual guff and banter. I can joke using my dry-wit and corny play-on-words. I can laugh my overly-dramatic tears-in-my-eyes laugh. I'm fine. But during the night hours everything hits me. The isolating lonelin...

    When I cry, Don't try to wipe my tears away. Don't give me any words of comfort, Or ask if I'm okay. When I run, Don't try to stop me. Don't block the door or anything more, Or ask to see what I see. When I jump, Don't hold out your arms for me. ...

    Remember when we talked all the time? When we told our stupid jokes and spoke in rhyme? The laughs we shared and all the good times we had, Even the ones that got REALLY bad? At one point I was your number one, Your go to girl whenever life wasn't fun. I'd pick you up and say e...

    Usually when you think of camping you’d think of pitching a tent, building a campfire, and eating s’mores while telling ghost stories with your friends. Maybe you simply remember enjoying the fresh air and the endless myriad of stars in the outlying sky. But when I think of camping, pitching a t...

    I'm going to write a new story. One with pretty words and happy endings. It'll be about my old friends-how we laughed and smiled and felt like everything was okay when we were together. I'll write about all our inside jokes and our games, all our misadventures and ploys. But I'll...

    On my tableside, A clock stands tall. The second hand ticking, With all the gears clicking; The greatest battle the world never saw. Those beady red digits- Such a tease as I watch them glowering, Down at me, and ever always towering, Over me, as patient and merciless as the sea. ...

    Distant memories are nothing more, Than what we see their name entails. They are something that can never recur, An old flame that could dryly burn out. An action marked with new symbols and blight, Replace the figurines of childish mirth and good heart. Something that could never be b...

    The times turn bad and you walk away, While I hold those final words I heard you say. I sit there hoping things will get better, then I look outside and see a single letter. I gaze at it with only my mind, Waiting to see what perhaps I could find. the letter addressed, bold and unflawe...

    The handwriting on the note looked strangely familiar. The words were written in neat cursive, each letter slanted slightly to the right. Her "i's" and "j's" were dotted with petite open circles. Alex thought he could smell the faint scent of lavender, or maybe it could...

    When something dies you let it go, But that's one rule I don't oblige. We know it's wrong and could be lost, So why are we still here, waiting with each other? I walk by your side and you by mine, Silent and unspoken, yet distressed with no ease. A fork in the road, or a p...
