    One thing I’ve learned for certain, I don’t do things if they might be easy. One impossible thing ends, another even more challenging thing begins. Really, what do I expect from this? That while you’re an ocean away you’ll sometimes miss me? That when you’re in port in some ...

    This is what I remember, The way you looked at me when you first saw me everyday, your whole face would light up. like you’d never seen anything better. The way you’d hold me so close, made me feel safe. And the way you were always touching me, like you couldn’t stop, How sometimes yo...

    I want to hear you whisper sweet and slow, “I never want to let you go.” Want my response to be, “I know.” Want to know you mean it, not just another throw-away moment. Like so many before you. And then I’ll need some follow through, some living proof. Even if you hold me so ...

    I close my eyes, and picture the scene, as real as anything... I’m standing at the top of a staircase, it’s long, curving gracefully to the shining floor below. I have one gloved hand laid lightly on the polished wood rail, one heeled foot on the top stair. I pause, adjust the long skirt of m...

    Why do they call it falling? Really it should be rising. Because that’s what I’m doing, from nothing, to this. And it’s all for you, my everything, you make it all worthwhile. can always make me smile. Every time I see you, just means so damn much, and when we touch, nothing’...

    Just your typical Tuesday when she first notices him, I mean really notices him. She’s always known he was there, the goofy kid who sits in the back of the class, smiled even said hi a few times. Never realized though. Until they, in typical school fashion, are assigned as partners in their art...

    No one knows I’m here, I left school, said I was sick, they won’t check. I’m just so tired of everyone’s sidelong looks, do they think I don’t see? That I can’t hear the whispers? I know okay? Every second I remember, but they’ll never let me forget. Even Lettie, she used to say she w...

    I’m looking out the window, See streets, gilded and fake, People smiling, but you can see it’s a lie. I’m walking out the door now. We are all leaving this place, Never to be together again, Roads of these small town We’ve all been on them so long. If it’s bad today, It cou...

    We come into this world, Big eyes bright, full of promise. Unencumbered, uncontained, But soon there are so many things we’ll miss. Weighed down by broken dreams, pointless thoughts, Wasted things. Year by year, burden gets heavier, All the people you meet are just ties You will eventua...

    So yesterday, I was walking along the hallways of our beautiful school, when an amazing idea occurred to me. What if, instead of learning to educate ourselves we learned so we could pass an insane amount of tests? This plan is clearly flawless, students would love it, teachers would be ecstatic, wha...

    Something so intoxicating. When the music is so loud, Can’t even hear my own thoughts, Lose it all, wipe it clean. Bass so strong. Feel it in my veins, Voices so sweet, Sing me to sleep. It’s freedom. To drown myself in notes, Bars, lines, Endless ecstasy. Only thing that makes...

    When he was young, guns were just toys, only a little boy. Just the goofy kid, could always make you laugh, always had your back. Now he’s older, the day’s finally come, for his father’s pride, signing up. Still only a boy, dreams of bravado, courage, shining medals, movie...

    Have you ever felt like a stranger in your own life? When something that was once so familiar has suddenly been twisted until it is a strange and foreign place. One day you are a small child, with unmarked skin, so naïve and full of wonderment at the shiny new world before you. The perfect size...

    It was eleven at night, the long dark road stretched before me, I had been driving for over twelve hours, and I was the most tired I have ever been. No radio stations would come in, static was the only sound in the speakers, I hadn’t seen another car in hours, and I wasn’t even sure where I was...

    As I stare deep into the flames: “Wish for something!” they say. I smile. Try to think…what do I want? The million dollar question… I want to change it all, be happy, fearless, strong, but how? And why would wishing change that anyways, shouldn’t you have to do it yourself? It almost...

    Somehow, some way, time has flown by So damn fast. Always thought it would last for so long. Got so lost in it, forgot it had to end. But now this summer is almost over. And I was so caught up in trying to find closure that I forgot to enjoy it. I stayed up so late until the only Lights on...

    I’m always fighting against this, This perfect monster I have created. Who knows the shape of my tears The curves of my fears… Who knows all my flaws, And loves them until I do too. Has dreams in the shape of a star And who’s future is never far from mine. And I’ll never see where yo...
