    There must have been hundreds of planes, but I only saw the first three. The first caught my attention because of its unusually loud volume. The only planes that usually passed by were as small and quiet as this town, and if they were larger then they were too high in the sky to really hear, on ...

      I'm sorry I missed your birthday. I was looking forward to it. I really wanted to be there. I know that sounds like a cover-up, but it isn't. I've had to cover-up a thousand times and I'm sick of doing that. So here's the truth: I was in my room gett...

    "to me," you say, "winter is grey." dark and cold and gloomy. You must pardon my mannars because, in reply, I said, "no, winter is red." and you wondered how that could be. winter is red bright red bold red refuse to be ignored red. relentless, merciless, survival of the fittest ...

    muffled voices outside my window. for most people this would be something to ignore. it's just the neighbors. in other cases perhaps it would be a cause for concern; but not this. not me. not you. because it's your voice I hear, warm and smooth and bright and buttery like Sunday mornings in...

    thick and hazy morning clings to my skin and lingers on my breath. it is the blanket engulfing me. it is the sandman overstaying his welcome. it is the heaters crackling, the furnace rumbling, the cat purring, the coffee maker gurgling. the coffee and the sky are the same color in this lig...

    I wonder if you know that I stare at the glaringly empty seat in the car where you used to sit every morning. I wonder if you know that today when I smiled at you and you acted like you didn’t even see me, a little part of me shriveled up and died. I wonder if you saw my face drop as you walked ...

    I am stuck. Not by choice but rather simply by consequence.   I am too young and too old too shy and too bold too anxious and too calm too busy and too bored   I'm not sure how I got here. I'm not sure if I am here or if I'm in-betwe...

    It goes everywhere I go. It stares at me from the other side of restaurants. It sits next to me in the car. It trails behind me at school. It loiters at the kitchen table as I brew a cup of coffee. It sits on my shoulders, watching, waiting; always ready to pounce. It pokes and prods at my brain. It...

    your eyes blink open in bed. the tag on your shorts scratches against your lower back. your neck is stiff from sleeping on it the wrong way. your leg is tangled in the sheet. you have those little crusties in the corners of your eyes, which are rimmed in red, puffy, and tired. this is life. you sh...

    The wind howled wildly and the rain poured down. Lightning struck sporadically and thunder mumbled overhead. Puddles were filling and spilling further into the street. Tree branches were drooping, their hair wet and heavy. Any creature with some sense took shelter from the storm. I must be senseless...

    Once upon a northern city, there lived a girl named Eliza. She was no prettier or smarter or better than the other students in her class, though she was pretty and smart. She lived her life with a smile on her face and was judged by those who lived with a frown. She was shy and bubbly and sensitiv...

    I awoke to complete silence, interrupted sporadically by the birds chirping cheerily outside my window. I glanced up at my origami cranes hovering above my head, hung from strings taped to the ceiling. They swayed slightly in the silent, invisible breeze, their necks curled, tails up. The usual, cal...

    I run my finger along the edges of the crisp, smooth pages, yet untouched. The unique excitement of opening a new book rushes through my veins, as if I’m embarking on my own adventure instead of reading about someone else’s. The adrenaline rush may also have something to do with the fact that I...

    We are both here, but you’re not near. Where are you, dear? I don’t know. Around the world you fly fast as a bee, can’t you see I need you with me? We’re sitting together, but you’re miles away. You only float away, float away and never stay. A mystery, y...

    “Say that to my face, hick!” a voice threatened from behind me, interrupting my sentance. I had been talking to Rachel about her new home and the lovely housewarming Barbeque we were in the middle of. Rachel’s eyes widened at the sight of this new person intruding on our conversation. I could ...

    I sat down on the curb of an empty street. The rain had slowed, along with the tears. My light-brown-dirty-blonde hair, which was once an impressive up-do of swirling curls, is now a waterfall of waves swooshing down my back. My one sparkling lavender dress is now a big, dark purple, mess; a lost ca...

    “Did you take the cookie?” “No.” I lied. “Are you nervous?” “Not at all.” I lied. “Are you sure your mom won’t mind?” “Totally.” I lied. “Did you spread that rumor?” “Of course not.” I lied. “What do you think?” “You look awesome.” I lied. ...

    Waking up to the morning sun. Happiness. A room full of laughter. Happiness. Hair that cooperates. Happiness. Leaves in hues of reds and oranges. Happiness. The smell of fresh baked cookies. Happiness. My pencil gliding across the page. Happiness. The purring of a c...
