    In a small meadow outside of Scotland a young girl named Jessica sat combing her long golden hair with a wooden brush. The blond wavy hair was nearly to the girl’s waist and as she sat the ends of her hair caressed wild sunflowers in the breeze. The day was bright and the world seemed perfect to t...

    When the alarm sounds I crawl out of my bed and line up with fellow Jews. They tell us to stay in line and for everyone to keep up. We walk obediently forward— we cannot help but pray this excursion is for food: our bodies are so malnourished each step we take is painful. We soon reach a building ...

    I drive my blue Volkswagen bus into a nice neighborhood complete with white picket fences and stereotypical Housewives. My friend Angela and I always carpool to work, so I suffer through the "eww-it's-a-pot-smoker-that-steals-children" glares that my vehicle always seems to attract in...

    In my sweet serenity of sleep I dream of angels holding cakes, don't ask me why, but to me, it's beautiful.Then the alarm goes off. I groan, pull back my sheets, and hit the alarm clock grudgingly. Can't I just sleep? In a half daze I walk towards the bathroom across the hall. Annoyan...

    A pot of noodles bubble on the stove while I slide cheesy garlic bread into the oven. The heat released from the oven whoosh's against my face as I shut it's door. I set the timer and work on mixing the ingredients for homemade Alfredo sauce into another pot on the stove. As I'm stirr...

    A thick mist lingers above the darkening forest as swift feet sprint. The fear and excitement bubbles through her veins with a passionate force. A crimson moon glows above the haze, she sees this and her pace grows faster. A rumbling growl escapes from the dense trees behind her, it's close. Sh...

    I lie on my back in the shallow end of the pool. The choppy water flutters against my skin while the sun attempts to tan it's paleness. Mothers and their children are active all around me. The kids splash and throw swim toys to amuse themselves while the mothers sun bathe and chat lightly with ...

    Sunlight seeps through the slanted shutters of a quiet home, illuminating the Pam covered cookie sheets lying misplaced on the tiles of the kitchen counter. Cookie dough melts into formless goo with the passing hours, yet the oven stays warm and hungry. The house is quiet, so quiet, until the...

    The only justification I had for my actions was insanity. If I ran off a building, if I jumped off a cliff, if I drowned myself, I could see the reason for my existence again. The fear and yearning bottled itself inside my soul, driving me toward action. With every self-induced...

    Perfection doesn’t last: the fragile seams of such a concept are destined for destruction. I had to do something, had to stop the inevitable from unfolding. My pain was immense; my thoughts were that of the insane. I couldn’t let it go. Your abandonment left me shaken and fearf...

    Inner turmoil deludes my sanity, but through the fog I see my options. To the right lies a cloudy haze of uncertainty. I look to it in fear, in desperation, and in earnest. There's much I have yet to defeat, much I have yet to learn, and much I have yet to discover. The possibility of happin...

    I squint out my window and see formidable rain collapse against the fractured pavement. I know you're out there. My blood circulates towards my heart again, my limbs manage to function again, my passion blazes in my soul again; it's complete ecstasy. Scrambling from my...

    "Are you sure you don't want to come out shopping with me?" Breathe, just breathe. "No...please?" "Jessi..I thought those pills were working. Maybe next time then." Calm down, I don't want you hyperventilating. Three. ...

    Arms are wrapped around me, squeezing me so tightly it hurts. A constant breathing pattern laps against my ear, but I don't know whose it is. I blink my eyes open in shock. That breath belongs to a man I've seen only a few times roaming through the city. I do not know of or about him, but ...

    Skin that burns with Hades' flame, there is only you to blame. Candles flicker with the moon, you will be coming soon. The room breathes cold and the lights grow dim, I'm ready for this midnight swim. On the boardwalk we run and leap, a hawkish memory I ...

    The sugary smell of cookie dough lifts into my nostrils as I stir its thick concoction. My blue-eyed daughter giggles behind me, snuggled protectively against her fathers chest. I turn sideways, watching my husband tickle our Elizabeth until her laughter turns to joyful screams. Heavy breaths leave ...

    "Okay...the Phantom of the Opera?" "Possibly, authors in the 1900's were more intelligent than they got credit for. The Phantom himself could have been an acquaintance of mine; fictional characters often portray our kind." "Rhett Butler?" &q...

    Monday: Today I’ve learned that siblings will always be hard to live with. You would think that after living with the same people for 16 years dodging the younger kids’ tantrums and avoiding the parents when they’re aggravated would be easy, but it’s not. One thing I myself can never deal ...

    My shocking orange eyes exploded inside his head. His thoughts were normal considering the situation, most people who were about to die usually thought the same thing. "Why now?", "this is it," and the forever constant "god help me." He was frightened of me, as he shoul...

    Harsh yet beautiful, like looking at the sun when it sets, it burns and stings, but you find yourself wanting more. Invigorating yet painful, like the thundering of your heart when you run, it takes your breath away, but pushes you further. Simple yet intricate, like th...

    I see your face in my dreams, haunting me quietly and lovingly; if that is even possible. I wait and wait for you to come back for me but you leave me to be forever alone, to darken and decay. Breaking Benjamin lyrics linger in my brain when I think of you, all I can do to forget is clench my fists ...

    Alert and stark at such a late hour I walked swiftly. The moon was in full bloom, it's light was blinding in contrast to the darkened sky. A cold as sharp as glass attack my bones with every dreaded step; early November was unrelenting. Sidewalk slipped behind faster and faster, gray pavement f...

    I fell swiftly, scraping my skin on jagged edges while falling further through the catacombs. Rocks fell with me, gravity propelling us down at the same rate. My hand reached out instinctively and landed a few inches palms up underneath a lone rock. I curved my fingers in pretending I controled &quo...

    . I sat beneath a swaying maple tree with intertwined eyelashes. I listened to the rustling leaves gliding quietly by my crossed legs until i found the almost nonexistant spark of sound I was looking for. With my eyes closed in complete concentration, I focused my comprehensive hearing on the...
