    Harbored in the meadow, Waiting to watch the sunset, Upon the old picnic table, Frozen, like a statuette. I watch in silence, The stillness profound, As the cold winter world fades, and colors drip onto the ground. Millions of green leaves appear, Thousands of vibrant flowers bloom, Hu...

    I can feel it tugging on my fragile body. With invisible hands, it grips me from within on all sides. This raging emotion struggles to stretch me further to make room for God knows what; though I am clearly still licking my wounds. My cheeks have not yet hidden from the world the paths of salt water...

    At night, a closet can envelope you in a black abyss. You take your familiar place at the very back, where you draw your knees to your chest; after gently shutting the door. As you level your breathing till it’s thin and undetectable, you feel a pressure as though the walls were encroaching on you...

    Your eyes widen each time the shadows do a new dance. Your heart kicks up into a sprint as another sound makes its way to your ears. The wind paces back and forth outside your window, waiting for you to let it in. When it gets too impatient, it screams and grabs the branches of the trees and uses th...

    Last night, I awoke to a bright beam of light coming in through my bedroom window. Even though we have lived in Alaska for three weeks now, I have still not adjusted to the sun staying out for so many hours each day. Groggy, and restless, I climbed out of my warm bed and tip toed across the cold, ha...

    Icy air filled her lungs as she ran beside her dad on their morning jog. The naked trees seemed to ache, wanting to come closer together for warmth; as did she. Gradually, she closed the distance between her and her father, to capture his body heat. She smiled happily until he turned to look at her ...

    She closed her eyes as she neared the end. Her breathing became staggered until finally, it ceased for a split second when she heard them call her name. She felt a tiny, but forceful shove from behind. She reluctantly opened her eyes to a thousand spectators watching her as she crossed the stage; da...

    There's a pressure building deep within me. The dark is closing in and stabbing at the edges of my sanity. Light slips away and noise crowds my ears. My foot aches to move forward, but I'm encompassed in a tangle of frustration and ignorance. I can't possibly wait any longer. I hit th...

    Lights flashed all around me. Loud and violent rumbles shook the ground on which I stood. Fear of the unknown clouded my excitement. I could see various shaddows in the distance as I stepped into the dark. Instantly, relief flooded me as I was met by a group of friends. We laughed and let our bodies...

    Resistance, resilience, and stubbornness define some teenagers. We often hesitate, make stupid mistakes, and struggle to find ourselves. We work harder than those before us.Our life's a desperate attempt to salvage our youth; whether anybody knows it or not. We have to do this;do that. Always g...

    A warm breeze sweeps across the farm. It carries with it the grotesque smell radiating off of the pigs that wallow in the mud nearby. A hawk circles in the distance, and gracefully but with finesse, swoops down into a tree. The farmer sits on his front porch, and rocks in his old blue chair. It ...

    You hate to waste such a sunny day Sitting in your own misery So with some excitement You step outside Knowing that it’s the only place You want to be You know your life isn’t so dull Not even as the rain clouds close in And make you feel small You can’t contain the child it brings ...

    Loneliness fills your body As you breathe heavily into the dark Your restless eyes search for a rescue While your speechless mouth cries out for help You hang your head on your knees that are pulled tightly to your chest You are hopeless and friendless Love-deprived and your tears have run dr...

    I’m walking along the curb, counting my steps. The icy winter air presses against my cheeks. I make my way through my neighborhood, deep in thought. The corner on my eye catches like a hook, on an open fence. I make my strides slow and steady. Next thing I know, there’s a growl and fierce barkin...

    Raindrops drip from my nose. I sit with my head hanging, tuned out from all of the whispers and desperate cries of pain, around me. I’ve wept so much, I have become scarce of tears. There is a warm breeze entangled in the drizzle of rain. For a split second, I caught myself remembering the many su...

    The copper sun rises into the cotton ball clouds in the blue sky. Pink, purple and orange rest on the edge of the earth and blend into the moist air. It is supposed to be nice today. But as I watch the sky fade to gray, time slows down. The clock on the wall keeps an annoying, constant tick. With ...

    The pale dirt swirls up from beneath my worn feet. We have walked a long way. Warm breath tickles the back of my neck, making my body tremble as the vapor cools and clings to tiny hairs. I rest a comforting hand on the mane of my mare, Chesca. I can see it in his eyes. Can he see it in mine? ...
