    The jar under my feet shifts. My life reserved like Formaldehyde logic. As it encompasses me My breath is unwelcoming, parallel to Inverted suffocation. When violet eyes set Like the overwhelming parhelion of an otherworldly sun As approving as an acquired taste. In a word, unrequi...

    Atheist. Just because I’m an atheist, doesn’t mean I hate your religion. Just because I’m an atheist, doesn’t mean I don’t respect what you believe. Just because I’m an atheist, doesn’t mean that I’m not human. Plenty of you don’t believe in god, but just because I put a lab...

    I am from Teddy bears, from colored pencils and hot coffee. I am from the fresh paint on the backyard deck , and the smell of warm banana bread. I am from the white daisies in my window, and the fir tree, whose limbs I remember as if they were my own. I am from taco Tuesdays and smiling face...

    If anyone bothered to look deeper they would see A weaker, lesser part of me. One that's not a warrior girl. One whose emotions control her world. One who cries herself to sleep at night. One who can't stand it when they fight. One who cares how others define, The girl w...

    Lies Fill my person. Muddled realities Screaming confusion. Truth Is not common here. Falsehood spread Like a child's game. Mysteries Of what is unknown Sit as kings and queens Upon their thrones....

    I've lost my faith In what I can be. I'm starting to doubt What I cannot see. I can't be answer-less In times of youth. I guess it's possible But where's the proof?...

    You broke my heart. You turned it Black. What a fool I am For I want you back. How dare you try and play with my heart. You know I love you. I have from the start. Who knew That the most beautiful person I have ever seen Could ever be heartless, Could ever be mean? Don't preten...

    There's a box on the shelf in my heart. It has your name on it. The box is old and dusty, full of memories. All that we had once shared. Truth be told, I was saving it. Hoping, that someday I may need it again. Now, I re-open it. Memories flood through my veins, Deep feelings, pulsing t...

    "Twenty, Nineteen, Eighteen, Seventeen...." The countdown goes on as I watch the space needle from the ground. Fireworks are going off all around me. "Thirteen, Twelve, Eleven..." "Alice? I have something I want to ask you." Says Alek, my now boyfriend of three years...

    Since I was a little girl, I have believed in equality. My older sister told me a story once, about something that happened at her high school before I was even in kindergarten. There was a boy named Kurt, and he was gay. Kurt was picked on relentlessly to the point of suicide. He hung himself in ...

    In this room of mirrors I see What is not me But what used to be. Now a smile Tomorrow it is weakened By their words. They don't understand How badly it hurts. Truth is truth But sometimes we wish It was a lie. It's these kind of thoughts That kill us inside. We let...

    Why do they care What others think? Trying hard, to find a link. between one and another Comparing each other. Life is not a competition Why do the compete? Who is more depressed Who will crumble In defeat? Put others down Make yourself feel good. Acting pitiful and helpless li...

    When I’m not myself, I am no one. These thoughts are only half my own. My body and my soul speak half truths. I wither until I am no longer me, but a shadow of my former self. But do not be frightened For shadows cannot speak a horror. Only a terror dream....

    I'm living as a spider, in my web of deception. Wrapping in my prey, feeding my lies to them and hoping they won't break free. Do I believe it is right? Getting these innocents tangled within my ugly web? I do not feed off misery. I feed off of the fact that I'm not who they think...

    She's in the middle of an internal war, has she won any battles? Love is a battle field. That is well known, but is her armor broken? Is this girl stuck in a broken suit of armor, struggling to free herself? Is she still fighting? Or has she been freed, and she is looking back on the past...

    A forgotten game of hide and seek, years ago. I was hiding; my Mother and Father were pretending that they didn’t know where I was. “Where is little Alicia? Where could she be?” The wondered aloud. “I’m here! Here I am!” I would jump out and shout, and we would all laugh. Now, ...

    Once upon a time, I let him go. I knew what was right, my head told me so. But my heart counteracts, it wants him to stay. Do I really want it to be this way? Now he screams, from the depths of silent memories. The tears I cry are plainly seen. He wants it to be just him and me. But that isn...

    My dearest sister, How are you broken, when you look so whole? How could you be sad, when your life is so full? Such a beautiful girl, inside and out. So why do you always sit there and pout? Why do you say that you’re broken inside? That this awful boy has damaged your stride? You are stro...

    As I look at myself in the mirror, I think about what I'm about to do. Am I brave enough to try again? Though I have tried many times, I always seem to keep myself from doing it. Because there is always that voice in the back of my mind, whispering, telling me it's not right. That...

    It is my calm place. My strong place. A place where I can collect myself, A place where thoughts come off the shelf A place to see past what other people see A place where I can be just me....

    The sway of her hips is contagious; moving in perfect harmony with the music. She mouths the words to the song, and she looks so beautiful. Standing there in the meadow with her long hair billowing in the wind, her skirt blowing behind her as she sways back and forth to the melody. There are s...
