    Why tell me what I need to be? Why can’t you live with me? The real me? I’m your expectation to be. I’m not gonna bow down. But I’d have to get away from this town. It’s too judging, my town of six. So I’m just gonna take my pick. I’ll turn around in circles, with my eyes c...

    Wow. It’s funny, who you Expect I am. ‘Cuz you’re dead wrong. You all see me as a nerd. “Go to her If you need to know what homework…” Heh. If we didn’t have to wear uniforms To school, I’m sure your head would turn And you’d go, “Oh my god. Who is that? That freak?” ...

    I don’t believe… I don’t. Stop pushing me to. They say it’s bad. They wonder and worry for me, though they don’t have to. There’s nothing wrong with me, I think. Nothing. So what, if I don’t believe in God? I know almost everyone does, but why do you, my own parent, have to seem disap...

    It was Halloween. Dad had been sick for a few days, so my mom was going to take me trick or treating (even though I was 13). Dad had been really sick lately, and when I had visited him last he had a temperature of 103 degrees. I urged him to go to the hospital. But Dad has this thing about hospitals...

    Why do I stay? You and your demeanor disgust me. Why didn't I say those words? Just A handful of words to be thrown to the ground is all it would take. But then I would sacrifice something More Important. I wouldn't sacrifice him for you. No matter how Horrible. I can't stan...

    You’re my dark angel. I know you, I do. I know everything. I can tell you’re not comfortable Unless imagining something dark. You like to say things that make my eyes pop. You don’t let anyone see you smile. I can’t see inside your soul like others. I think it’s because it’s so d...

    A few things to think about: the way a hair dresser brandishes the comb and hair dryer like a weapon. Daring your hair to defy it. The way a mist clings to your clothing like some fallen white hand begging for life. The way you can read a book over and over and notice something new each time....

    Oh, the curse of asthma. A slow building creeps unpon my back. Tugging. Pulling. Daring me to fight it. It swoops down on the most inopurtune times. Like a dark bat that Takes your breath Away. Gasp. Gasp. Chest heaves. Cough. A racking cough. Sipping air through a straw. A heavy weight...

    Loud crashing bangs. I ran from the window Hair flipping. Hugging Mom's legs. "What's that? Why's it so Loud?" Bright yellow forks Raining from the sky. Drawing in the clouds. A crash and bang. Loud. Bright. Like stairs. Like stairs of light weighing on the moun...
